We love unsolved murders.
Arguably, it’s a bit morbid but you must admit it’s exciting when, after all the boring bits in the news (this factory closed, that pound went up, some politician said something on twitter…YAWN), they go ‘now’ and the screen cuts to a photo from Facebook of someone interesting looking who has gone missing.
Over the years, the creative director (Helen), the European Corespondent (Who will remain nameless out of misplaced fear of their career prospects should they be named) and myself have speculated wildly over some cases. Sadly, out of respect for both the dead and libel laws, we can’t really go into our discussions here.
Suffice to say, bring on the serial killing! Oh, is that too morbid?
