Thriller - Part 6: The Man With The Laser Eyes

Season 6, Episode 23,  Aug 12, 2021, 12:01 AM

When we left the Thriller arc last time, in their hunt for the multiple rapists and suspected single triple killer, police had just utilised the services of Professor David Canter, who helped Operation Trinity with the then groundbreaking investigative tool of the psychological profile.

Sure enough, it was near enough right on the money, and when applied to the suspect pool, made one name jump right out at police: 

John Francis Duffy. 

It led to charges being brought for multiple rapes - and the murders of Alison Day, Maartje Tamboezer, and Anne Lock, with Duffy scheduled to face trial for these in January 1988.

So let's see how that went.
