About this product
- DescriptionMurder & Crime in Northumberland features twelve historic criminal cases that t only shocked the North East, but made headlines throughout the country. Spanning a period of nearly one hundred years, this book opens with the killing of Thomas Hamilton, whose body was discovered lying at the foot of the town's walls at Berwick-upon-Tweed. We have the wicked conspiracy by police officers at Edlingham, near Alnwick, resulting in two incent men serving ten years' imprisonment; the case of John Dickman, hanged for shooting a man on the railway; Jocker Amos, who shot three people dead at the Sun Inn, Bedlington; Evelyn Foster, who burnt to death on the Ottercaps; and Albert Edward Matheson, who murdered 15-year-old Gordon Lockhart and buried his remains under the boxing ring at St James's Boxing and Wrestling Hall, Newcastle. Drawing on a wide selection of sources and illustrated with more than fifty images, this collection will appeal to everyone interested in true crime and the shadier side of Northumberland's past.
