It turns out that another girl was slain in the same manner as the other victims while Victor and Owens were busy with the interrogation. Only this time, the detectives apprehended the murderer in the act, just as Henry confessed to the crime.
The girl's name was Ethel Wilson and she was only eleven years old. Like many young girls, she had left home to go find work as a housemaid. She had been living with her employer, a Mr. and Mrs. William Walters, and their two children. One night when they returned from an evening out, they found the house locked up and no sign of the girl. They reported her missing the next day. During the investigation, it also came out that Ethel had been seen at the cinema near where one of the other girls worked. A few weeks later, her body was discovered in a nearby wood. It was confirmed through medical evidence that she had been raped and strangled to death.
After hearing this news, Victor Leckie, who was now working on the case full-time, went back to the cinema where Ethel had been seen last. He knew that both Mr. and Mrs. Walters would be able to identify him if he showed them a photo of the murderer. So he asked some of the staff there if any of them could identify someone who may have been visiting the cinema at the time Ethel was there.
In contrast, Victor and his subordinate, Owens, feel that Henry's falsehoods are sufficient evidence that he is the killer. We feel Victor is correct about this since he is a nice person and not a jerk like Owens. Also, it turns out that both of them were right since it was Henry who killed himself.
Now, regarding their motives, it can be said that they were both jealous of Henry. He had found love with a woman named Marie Delmont and was happy with her. Jealousy is a strong emotion that can drive anyone to kill. So, both Victor and Owens were not only right but also good people who wanted to help Henry find peace.
Here are some other characters on the show that we should mention:
Marie Delmont - This is the name of the woman that Henry married. She works at the newspaper with him and they have a son together named Ben. It can be assumed that they were very happy together until one day when she goes to interview a murderer. After telling Henry about this, she gets sick and later dies from a heart attack. This causes Henry to commit suicide too.
Lila Owen - She is the wife of Owens who is a police officer just like him. They meet when they go to arrest Henry for murder.
Suspenseful murder mystery. A Confession depicts the true-life sad story of Sian O'Callaghan and Becky Godden-Edwards, who were both murdered by the vile Christopher Halliwell and the detective who fought to bring him to justice. This edition features an exclusive new introduction by bestselling author Helen Fitzgerald.
Huntsville Unit, Huntsville, Texas, United States Henry Lee Lucas (August 23, 1936–March 12, 2001) was a serial murderer in the United States who committed murders between 1960 and 1983. He was convicted of 11 murders and condemned to death for the murder of Debra Jackson, but his sentence was commuted to life in prison in 1998. He died of natural causes while in custody.
Lucas is most famous for being the subject of one of the country's first true crime books, I Confess: The Truth About Murder and Religion (1963), which examined his case with regard to religion. The book was written by Dr. James M. Darley, who interviewed Lucas shortly after he was arrested. The book became a national bestseller.
In addition to writing the book, Dr. Darley also testified at Lucas's trial. On March 12, 2001, just months before his death, Lucas wrote a letter to the editor of The Dallas Morning News in which he confessed to another murder. That murder had not been included in his trial due to lack of evidence, but now new evidence has come to light confirming that Lucas killed another woman. The body of this second victim was found near where she had been shot twice in the head at close range with a.22 caliber pistol. She had also been sexually assaulted.
Henry Lee Lucas was born on August 23, 1936, in Boonville, Missouri, to John Wesley Lucas and Lillie Belle Thomas.
Philip's mother begins drug treatment. Philip informs Helen that Lukas was present at the cabin during the shooting and possesses the rifle. Ryan is now known to Helen and the boys as the murderer. She tells them she cannot protect them anymore and sends them back to Seattle.
After saying goodbye to his mother, Philip goes to see Lukas. When they are alone, Lukas shoots him dead.
Lukas then calls his father to tell him what he has done. Carl comes to check on his son's body and finds it impossible to believe that he has killed someone. He picks up the gun and puts it in the closet. Later that night, after hearing a noise, he goes into the room where the body is and sees that Philip is still alive. Filled with rage, he shoots his son in the head. After this terrible act, Carl realizes that he is alone in the world and decides to end his life.
The next day, when Helen returns from her trip, she discovers her husband and son dead. She collapses into grief-stricken tears.
Meanwhile, in Washington State, some hunters find the remains of a man who has been shot. They call the police who identify him as Ryan. His mother is heartbroken when she hears the news and commits suicide.
William Lewis Reece, the suspected serial murderer, led detectives to examine the location where her remains were discovered. Reece was charged with the deaths of Jessica Cain and Laura Smither in 2016.
As part of his plea deal, he will not be able to file any appeals regarding the convictions for murdering Jessica Cain and Laura Smither. He also admitted to killing one other woman, Debbie Reese, in 1992. The circumstances surrounding that murder are not known publicly but investigators believe it may have been related to sexual activity conducted over the Internet.
Debbie Reese was a 33-year-old mother of two when she went missing on January 6, 1992. She had performed as a stripper under the name "Deena" before she went missing. Her body was found by hunters in a wooded area near Lake Lanier in Georgia. An autopsy determined that she had been killed by a single gunshot to the head.
Police believe that Debbie Reese's death is connected to three other murders that occurred in Atlanta between 1989 and 1991. In each case, the victim's body was dumped in the Killing Field, a landscaped area near Buford Highway and Old Dixie Road where many unidentified bodies have been found over the years.
The first two cases involved women who had been shot in the head.
Despite proof that Maitland was in two places at the same time, Anderson is certain that Maitland murdered the small child. Maitland, who had been imprisoned awaiting trial, is escorted to the courthouse and shot to death by the victim's elder brother, Ollie Peterson. The reason given for his murder was that there was no evidence against him.
This case has been used as an example of extreme injustice. Ollie was an innocent boy who was killed because he was poor and didn't have a rich family friend who could pay for an attorney. Maitland was an adult who made his own decisions and should not be held responsible for his actions. However, the fact that he was black and the town was white led to his being found guilty of murder.
After graduation from high school, Peterson went on to earn a degree in business administration from Ohio State University. He later became a real estate agent and moved to California where he died in 1990 at the age of forty-nine.
In 1998, Ollie's son Robert Jr. wrote a book about his father called "The Boy Who Was Killed By His Friend". The book tells the story of how Maitland came to be convicted despite having an alibi and how my father dealt with this tragedy when it happened to him so many years later.
