S08E02 | Peter Moore | The Murders of John Henry Roberts, Edward Carthy, Keith Randles and Anthony Davies


In the second episode of season 8, I tell the story of serial killer Peter Moore, The Man in Black.

 

In late 1995, cinema owner Peter Moore killed four innocent men in North Wales.

 

He murdered John Henry Roberts, Edward Carthy, Keith Randles and Anthony Davies between September and December that year.

 

Moore was handed four life sentences in 1996 with a recommendation that he never be released from prison.
