Old Ladies Don't Deserve Justice? | The Murder of Emily Armstrong

The murder of Emily Armstrong was in danger of being lost as a story. Historical true crime is such a good learning tool for attitudes of the past and today, we learn about not one, not two but THREE unsolved murders in the same area of London which may have just had a little to do with each other, particularly when it came to how the victims were treated.


This poses the question, if you're old and you're killed, does it matter? Spoiler alert, I think IT REALLY DOES, but the police back in the 1940's may not have had the same view.


The same thing goes, if you have no family, does your death warrant the police seeking justice on your behalf or is it easier for them to get on with other cases that they feel are more worth while. It's an interesting argument.

Old true crime stories like this are so easily overlooked but I feel they are worth covering. Left out of your average true crime documentary or true crime podcast and hardly, if ever covered by true crime youtubers, it's important to bring some of these tales up from the depths so those that suffered, still have their names spoken.

Agatha Christie - The Worlds Greatest Disappearance | How to Disappear Completely

If anyone was going to plan the worlds most mysterious disappearance, it was definitely Agatha Christie!On the 4th of December 1926, a 36 year old woman tucked her daughter into bed, grabbed an attache case containing her personal documents, some clothing and some cash and got into her car driving off into the night.The next day the Morris Cowley car belonging to the woman, was seen perilously hanging over the edge of a cliff but it’s driver was nowhere to be found.Furthermore, the documents and clothing had been left behind and the lights on the car were left on.The next few days saw an almighty search for the woman in which over 500 police were called into search for a body but nothing was discovered.The mystery was made all the more intriguing in that this wasn’t just a search for any regular person but for a well renowned author, one who wasn’t a stranger to mysteries.So grab your magnifying glass and your luxurious moustache and join me as I delve into another macabre mini mystery and go on the hunt for Agatha Christie.Thanks so much for watching!If you are new here, you may not know that Macabre London is a fortnightly podcast and YouTube show that delves into Londons haunted and gruesome history alongside discovering Macabre mini Mysteries from all over the world!

Police have arrested and charged Koci Selamaj for her murder. He is awaiting trial.https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2021/sep/28/sabina-nessa-man-charged-murder-teacher-sabina-nessa-koci-selamajSarah Everard was kidnapped by policeman Wayne Couzens who falsely arrested her. She was raped, murdered and her body was burned by him. He has been given a life sentence. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2021/sep/30/sarah-everard-murder-wayne-couzens-whole-life-sentenceIt's not just the high profile cases like Sabina's or Sarah's but 1000's of women face violence every single day at the hands of men they know and men they don't. The only way to end these senseless acts of violence is to educate boys and men. Women are not objects and not something to be abused. All money made from the episode will be going to www.whiteribbon.org a charity which provides education to men and boys in the hope of eradicating male violence, your donations will be welcomed by them.
