It was the summer of 1946 when the charming but deadly ex RAF playboy Neville Heath shocked the British public with the brutality of his murders. Certainly Heath was a narcissistic character who was addicted to thrills and sex. When Heavy drinking was then added to the mix, Heath who was a deeply flawed fantasist seemed to lose all control. Heath had a magnatism to his personality that some women found irresistible. He had the confidence and arrogance to act as a different personality which people readily accepted.
If Heath had set his sights higher he could have been a master criminal instead of the small time conman, drunk , bully and murderer as he will be remembered.
But could it be argued that Heath was mentally damaged during his birth and his wartime experiences to the extent that in certain circumstances he was not responsible for his actions?
