Raoul Moat, the police hating murderer on the run

Season 1, Episode 12,  May 02, 2022, 04:00 AM

Helen Anderson and Danni Howard take a look at the case of Raoul Moat, the murderer on the run that had the UK glued to their TV screens. After getting out of prison, Raoul took his hatred of the police to a whole new level, murdering two innocent men and seriously injuring his ex-girlfriend before turning the gun on himself. Expect a terrifying meat head of a man, a vendetta against the police, serious ‘roid rage, and football star Gazza turning up to save the day with a fishing rod and a chicken dinner…
