Thomas Montgomery | The Murder of Brian Barrett | Killer British Murder Stories Vol. 5 Feat. Bobbie Holmes


In the fifth volume of Killer British Murder Stories, I am told the story of Thomas Montgomery by Bobbie Holmes of Killer Stories Podcast.

 

On September 15, 2006, 46-year-old Thomas Montgomery murdered his 22-year-old co-worker Brian Barrett in the car park outside their work.

 

The two men were involved in an online love triangle story you must hear to believe.

 

Thomas was sentenced to 20 years in prison for the murder.

 

The media refer to this case as the 'Talhotblond' murder, and Courtney Cox later directed a TV movie adaptation of the story.

 

This episode is the second of two collaborations Bobbie and I recently recorded. To hear me tell the story of David Fuller, please check out Killer Stories.
