Preview – The Chillenden Murders

Stephen Kamlish

In 1996, Lin Russell and her daughter Megan were brutally murdered, triggering what led to be the biggest manhunt by British Police, before Michael Stone was arrested and charged with life imprisonment.

Twenty years later, Michael is still maintaining his innocence and questions his conviction.  Now, with exclusive access to the vast collection of original case files, a team of independent experts has come together to re-examine the evidence. With backgrounds in policing, forensics, law and criminology, they will attempt to shed new light on the case and finally get the answers the family deserves.

In this episode, the team examines the details of the crime, and the forensic evidence found at the scene. They then turn their attention to the case against Michael Stone at court, and uncover some shocking details that never made it to trial.
