Drivers

Episode 11,  Oct 17, 11:01 PM

James looks at the case of Marsha Wilson, referred for review by a retired detective checking if it could have been a Rhoades case, and discusses other murderous truck drivers - examining how, by understanding their offending and moving away from victim bias, we may be able to save more lives in future.

This episode includes discussions of crimes and linked topics which some people may find disturbing and upsetting and we especially advise parental caution with any children who may hear this episode.
