- murder on your doorstep
There was a murder in the park at the end of my street last summer. The park was cordoned off for weeks because it was a huge area to search. There was a copper standing at each gate and each gap in the railings day and night. One day a friend of mine was stuck in traffic, watching one of the coppers – he’d been standing there so long the wild life had adopted him. If he stuck his arms out birds would come and perch on him.Posted 9 years agomolgripsSubscriber
My sister lives in a village in Herefordshire with about 300 people. About as far away from civilisation as you can get in the southern half of England, and a really long way from any cities. Just after they moved in a couple of years ago, someone beat his mate to death in a drunken rage, and the other day someone broke into someone’s house and set them on fire! And they died too. Scary.Posted 9 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
My Dad moved to a small hamlet about 7 miles from Newquay in Wales about 15yrs ago. Literally just a few houses, farms etc dotted around. They made friends with the couple up the lane. He used to mention that they had the odd row, but they seemed normal enough. My Dad got a strange call from the lady of the house one morning, he said she sounded a bit upset etc, so my Dad walked up to check all was ok.
The door was wide open, so my Dad called out & heard her sobbing so in went in to find her sitting on the kitchen floor.
She was holding a big kitchen knife that had just passed through the chaps stomach. He lay dead in the next room.
My Dad had to give evidence at Swansea Crown Court a few months later.
Just a few weeks ago a chap was beaten to death for a bottle of wine just down the road from my brothers house. Was all over the news at the time.Posted 9 years ago0pt1calMember
I moved out of Glasgow City Centre two years ago, my last year living there, 9 people were killed in the street outside my flat. I couldn’t leave the front door of our flat on a couple of occasions as it was a crime scene. My next door neighbour left the country after being caught with kilos of powder and several weapons.
I’m now in suburbia…. no murders, just the usual anti-social behaviour from the local Young Team…in fact it’s boring in comparision. 🙂Posted 9 years agocinnamon_girlSubscriber
My son recently moved to another flat in London. The next day he came back from work to see two ambulances outside next door and a couple of police cars. There had been a murder!!
He still loves London, he’s welcome to it. I was brought up there and glad I moved away.

a woman was raped and decapitated in a park near me, apparently caught the murderer who had fled back to he’s home country of Czech republic. He was caught on CCTV stalking the victim on a few occasions on her regular walking routes…. No sure if still pending court case, this happened around may or june last year, Glasgow, Queens Park.Posted 9 years agoBadlyWiredDogSubscriber

Well, Rudebot ain’t around innit, but look at it this way, I’m a right fiery little git me and when people piss me off like, I just like knife ’em innit geezer. Like, the other day the Babylonians called round and I was like, wassup Babylonian scum? But you people just talk crap, there’s some great riding in London, Regent’s Park Hampstead Heath, Brent Cross Shopping Centre and I’ve spent many happy night at the Royal Ballet, so you don’t know what you’re talking bout. Spect you think it’s all murders in London and violence and that, but it’s like the only city in Britain with a cinema and a Starbucks. And then I stuck me fingers in a main socket again, stupid, stupid Rudebot, and fried my brain etc, ad nauseum. Again. Gottit?Posted 9 years agobigsiMember

One guy was beaten to death outside his own front gate by a drunk guy on his way back from town. When the police caught the guy who did it the judge bailed him and he did a runner 🙄 .
The 2nd person was murdered in their own flat by someone they knew,,, mind you they did sometimes play Elvis records at full blast in the afternoons 😉
