Episode 13: Killer Kids
Amy talks about the case of Mary Bell, an 11 year old budding serial killer who murdered two small boys in the town of Newcastle on Tyne, England. She was born into a world that did not want her and prostituted to her mother’s clients for most of her childhood. Mary acted out aggressively and snuffed out two lives in the process. She would go off to detention centers and women’s prison and was in a way reformed. Hear her story and the stories of the two boys she murdered, Martin Brown and Brian Howe, on episode 13 on the She Sleuths – A True Crime Podcast!
