Voice of a Killer – January 3

Voice of a Killer returns with David Wilson

This new series about how police question suspected killers begins on CBS Reality on Thursday 3 January. 

I am a contributor to it and had to do a lot of research on the six cases included. Watching or listening to lengthy questioning sessions was tedious at times. Unlike TV dramas, there usually isn’t much drama.

At the same time it requires patience for those vital moments when a callous killer may give themselves away.

They vary considerably here, from chilling psychopath Israel Keyes in the US to UK killers Nathan Matthews and Shauna Hoare, who killed teen Becky Watts. The latter tragic case starts the series.

Some of the killers are hard to pin down because they are psychopaths who lie easily and feel no guilt. Others are stupid and incompetent, and soon outfoxed by detectives.

The series, presented by Professor David Wilson, gives rare insights into the reality of all types of homicide and the challenges facing police. But be warned – the cases are generally sad and chilling.

Details of all the programmes are on CBS Reality’s site.
