Portsmouth: The Murder of Linda Cook
Murdertown
On the 9th of December 1986, the half naked body of Linda Cook was found in the grass and scrub of a pathway in Buckland, Portsmouth. She had been repeatedly kicked in the face, head and body after being raped. The only clue the Hampshire Constabulary had to go on was a footprint left on her abdomen, a mens trainer with a unique tread — the word “FLASH” imprinted on the sole. The killer would be dubbed ‘The Beast of Buckland”, and the crime became known as “The Cinderella Murder.”Following each episode of Katherine Kelly's true crime TV series Murdertown, Benjamin Fitton from They Walk Among Us unpicks a new case from each location. Watch Murdertown exclusively on Crime+Investigation in the UK every Monday at 9pm from 16th September and then straight after listen to a brand new story right here with the Murdertown podcast.
