Southampton rattled by step-son's plan to scare wedding crasher that goes terribly wrong - Murdertown


The true story of Pennie Davis, whose feud with her ex-partner's son leads him to take extreme measures that she paid for with her life. The case centred on Pennie's relationship with Ben Carr, who had lasting hate towards his father's ex. Pennie had been in a toxic on-off relationship with Timothy Carr from about 2005 to 2012. But why would anyone want to kill a loving mother in the unlikely setting of a picturesque New Forest village? Murdertown puts location centre stage. Each episode tells the compelling, step-by-step story of how one extraordinary murder was solved and how it fit a disturbing wider pattern in one particular city. With interviews from victims, witnesses and police officers, Murdertown tells the story of some of the most shocking murders in the UK and examines the impact they had on local communities around them.
