Oh, we do love to be beside the seaside. Beaches, piers and perhaps a summer romance…
But Britain’s resorts do have a dark side, and this is explored in a series starting this month. Murder by the Sea is a six-part documentary on CBS Reality.
I got a bit of an insight into the series and the cases featured when I was invited to be interviewed on it.
Crimewriter Geoffrey Wansell
Presented by crime author Geoffrey Wansell, the first case looked at is Stephen Akinmurele. It’s an intriguing but chilling story.
Akinmurele is a little known case, because he killed himself before he could be tried. He is Britain’s most prolific young serial killer, having been charged with murdering five elderly people between 1995 and 1998. Some of these were committed in Blackpool.
I’ve seen the opener and will preview it in full shortly.
