S04E04 - Stuart Hulse (The Murder of Shirley Brown)


In the fourth episode of British Murders Season 4, I tell the story of Stuart Hulse and Shirley Brown.⁣

In June 1996, Hulse attended a "sordid sex party" with ten other individuals.⁣

At the party, Hulse watched an extreme pornographic video and became frustrated when he was left on his own after everyone else coupled up and disappeared to different bedrooms.⁣

Hulse took a taxi home, snuck into Shirley Brown's house and sexually assaulted her. He was re-enacting the acts portrayed in the video.⁣

He then strangled Shirley to death with her tights and went home.⁣

He was handed a life sentence in January 1998 and told in 2008 that he must serve a minimum of 17 years behind bars before being eligible for parole.⁣
