This Funzing Experience:
Just how was it possible to commit murder after murder over a five year period with nobody suspecting anything to be wrong? How could people, busy in their everyday lives in business and active social circles, just simply disappear?

Paul Stickler delves into the remarkable story of John George Haigh, who in wartime and post-war Britain planned and carried out the killing of six people by dissolving their bodies in acid.

What were his motives and was he mad or just simply bad? His greed, coupled with his calmness and callousness makes this a gruelling story of extraordinary human behaviour.

Paul is a crime historian and criminologist with 30 years police experience including a secondment to the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia and researches British murder investigations in the early to mid twentieth century. His book, ‘The Murder that Defeated Whitechapel’s Sherlock Holmes: At Mrs Ridgley’s Corner’ is an examination of a Hertfordshire murder in 1919 in the context of the law and police procedures at the time. Other research has led to the recent BBC programme, The Porthole Mystery, a murder in 1947 committed on the high seas.

You will find this talk entertaining, shocking and thoroughly engaging.

Venue: Gabeto, Camden

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.
