Tracie Andrews, the femme fatale killer who tricked the nation

Season 1, Episode 6,   Mar 21, 2022, 05:00 AM

Helen Anderson and Danni Howard travel back to just before the millennium to delve into the mind of Tracie Andrews, the femme fatale killer who tricked the nation. After murdering her partner Lee Harvey in a vicious and frenzied attack, she used her charm to lay blame on a ‘fat man with staring eyes’, promoting the police to launch a search for a man who never even existed. Expect arguments of volcanic proportion, enough charm to fool a press conference (almost), and an attack that could never be forgotten. Devils in The Dark contains graphic details of sexual assault and violence and is not intended for all audiences. Listener discretion is strongly advised.
