Description

The true story of convicted murderer Chris Halliwell - how many women do you have to kill to be a serial killer? Superintendent Steve Fulcher had not followed procedure, Halliwell could not be convicted of the second murder. Fulcher was suspended for gross misconduct, and later quit the force. Halliwell, imprisioned for the first murder, was later convicted of the second, after a long, tortuous process of collecting new evidence. But the police, including Fulcher, remain convinced that he has killed other women known to have disappeared. This is a notorious case not only for Halliwell's crimes, but of the controversy over DS Fulcher's behaviour.
