Laura Richards analyses and deconstructs the murders and attacks on lone women committed by Peter Sutcliffe (known as PS throughout the series) in the north east of England in the 1960s and 1970s.

This case happened before Laura started her career at New Scotland Yard. It was the very reason her unit was set up.

Listen and find out why Laura believes this is one of the most misunderstood cases of our time and why we should stop referring to this serial killer as The Yorkshire R*****

Join Laura each week in the intelligence cell as she behaviourally breaks down each attack and highlights which cases she believes to be linked, why PS did what he did and how he was allowed to get away with it for so long.

You won't want to miss this.

What a unique and amazing tale about the strength of families during the worst moments in their lives. I appreciate the more human approach to the stories being told. you get just as much information but in a smart and respectful way. Hearing about it from all of these different angles somehow makes it more real and not just another murder talkshow on a podcast show. It's horrifying and intriguing at the same time
I like the approach that Richards is taking in this episode, because it feels better to honour the victims than it does to glorify the killer. But more importantly, focusing primarily on the perpetrator, Richards argues, leads to worse investigating and failure to solve crimes.
