Levi Bellfield, the Bus Stop Killer

Season 1, Episode 14,   May 16, 2022, 04:00 AM

Helen Anderson and Danni Howard turn back the clock to look into one of the most disgusting killers so far, the Bus Stop Killer, Levi Bellfield. After growing up into a woman hating thug, Levi took the lives of two women, one 13 year old girl and attempted to murder another woman in a violent attack involving a people carrier. Expect harrowing accounts from ex-partner Jo Collings, first hand accounts from police investigators on the scene at the time, and a very angry Danni.

Devils in The Dark contains graphic details of sexual assault and violence and is not intended for all audiences. Listener discretion is strongly advised.
