This week, Professor David Wilson focuses on Steve Wright, The Suffolk Strangler, who was sentenced to life for the murder of five prostitutes in 2008. Wright's crimes made front page news for three months and no woman in the Ipswich area felt safe until he was caught. His crimes were so brutal that the presiding judge at his trial recommended that he should never be released from prison.

Using the latest in cutting-edge criminology techniques, our real life 'Cracker' returns to Ipswich to re-examine these brutal murders and makes a startling discovery.
