The murder of Hilda Murrell, parts 1, 2 and 3.
These three podcasts are being broadcast over the weekend starting 16th April 20121.
I first became interested in this case when I was watching a programme called ‘After Dark’ on Youtube about the Security Services. During the programme they started to talk about Hilda Murrell and everyone there seemed to accept the fact that she had been killed by bungling people who had been employed by the Security Services (probably MI5 and Special Branch).
There were some other leads from that programme which I intend to pursue later.
Anyhow, I thought that it would be a straightforward podcast to create, but the closer the facts were examined, the more complicated the story became.
It seems that a company employed by the security services: Zeus Security Consultants were responsible for hiring other companies such as Contingency Services that hired psychopaths to break into properties and search for information. This was like a British Watergate that never came into public knowledge. (It is said that the British state is far less open than that in America).
I am unsure as to what actually happened, but I do not believe that the person who was eventually convicted was guilty. I am also unconvinced by the police investigation, I think it was a cover-up ordered from ‘High-ups’ in government.
Listen to the podcasts and make up your own mind. However, please be advised that the podcasts are recorded in one take and there is background noise, some stumbling over words and some mistakes; for example, I call Hilda Murrell, Hilda Murray on a number of occasions. I try to maintain the ‘George Orwell approach’ of doing everything in one take, even if it leaves in the mistakes.
