TV judge looks at Halliwell murders in new documentary

A NEW documentary examining harrowing details of how police caught double-murderer Christopher Halliwell will be broadcast on ITV tomorrow.

Television personality and real-life criminal defence barrister Judge Rinder will step out from behind the bench to take a closer look at the gripping case of Sian O’Callaghan, who disappeared after a night out with friends at the Suju nightclub in Old Town in March 2011.

The hour-long special will follow the multiple twists and turns in the case from the initial arrest to the court case, as well as Halliwell’s life-sentence imposed last year after he was found guilty of murdering Becky Godden.

The Judge Rinder documentary comes just weeks after a show aired in the USA recounting the 22-year-old’s last movements.

See No Evil: Watch Me Disappear, on the Investigation Discovery channel, revealed CCTV and Automatic Numberplate Recognition (ANPR) were key in apprehending Halliwell.

People Magazine Investigates After Show: How Solving Keddie Murders Is ‘Personal’ for Investigators

The unsolved killings of a young mother and three teenagers 35 years ago in a small, northern California town haunt the surviving family members of the victims.

But the memory of those murders has also stayed with the community — and especially with the investigators who have re-opened the case of the 1981 attacks on Sue Sharp, her son Johnny, her daughter Tina, and family friend Dana Wingate.

The mystery of what happened in Cabin 28 in Keddie, a faded Sierra Nevada resort community, was revisited Monday in an episode of People Magazine Investigates, PEOPLE’s new true-crime series on Investigation Discovery.

In conversation with PEOPLE Senior Editor Alicia Dennis for the People Magazine Investigates After Show, staff writer Jeff Truesdell talks about how the case stands apart from others he’s reported for the magazine.

Beverly Jackson: ‘Swamp Murders’ — Teen Killers, Dulie Alonzo Green, Victor Pestano, Left Nurse To Drown In Car …

Beverly Jackson was a Miami nurse who was found dead in the trunk of her car over two decades ago. The car had been pushed into the waters of a canal. Her killers, Dulie Alonzo Green and Victor Pestano, who were both in their mid-teens at the time, were charged eight years after the crime. Swamp Murders on Investigation Discovery will recount Beverly Jackson’s incredible story in their episode titled “In Too Deep,” which will follow police as they search for a missing nurse who never arrived for her shift at the local hospital. But when she is found in a watery grave two days later, it will take a guilty conscious and a phone call almost a decade later to help solve the case.
