Notorious serial killers will be the focus of investigator and crime expert David Swindle’s upcoming Aberdeen talk.
What makes a serial killer tick? What are the tell-tale signs? What really goes on behind the scenes?
If you’ve already binge-watched Capturing the Killer Nurse, Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story and all the other true crime documentaries on Netflix, P&J Live’s serial killer talk might pique your interest.
David Swindle’s The Makings Of A Murderer will focus on the biggest British serial killers of all time – including Jack the Ripper, Peter Tobin, Harold Shipman, Peter Sutcliffe and “killer couples” such as Fred and Rose West, and The Moors Murderers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley.
David said: “Serial killers are cunning, conniving, controlling, careful and – I hate to say it – clever.
“They live apparently normal lives and get away with their crimes for years… until eventually detected.”
The Makings of a Murderer: Don’t miss interesting talk in Aberdeen
The now-retired Scottish senior investigating officer has worked on hundreds of murders and complex high-profile UK-wide investigations during his 34 years in the police – including management of the Glasgow Airport terrorist attack investigations.
He also helped to form the UK’s Operation Anagram to trace victims of Scottish convicted serial killer and sex offender Peter Tobin.
Louise Stewart, interim managing director, said: “If you’re in the mood to delve into the criminal mind, this show will provide a fascinating and realistic insight into what it takes to catch a serial killer.
“This is something completely different for P&J Live and it’s great to see our diary filling up with such a wide variety of genres – something that we work really hard to provide the people of the north-east.”
The Makings of a Murderer is at Aberdeen’s P&J Live (Hall C) on Friday March 10. Please note this is an adult-only event.
The venue pre-sale starts at 10am on Thursday November 17. Tickets will go on general sale at 10am on Friday November 18 at pandjlive.com
