On the 17th of May 2008, two motorway patrol officers attended to a call that a pedestrian had been hit by a vehicle on the M6 motorway, near the city Stoke-on-Trent, in England.

Expecting the worst, the two officers were surprised when they arrived to see two pedestrians standing calmly and uninjured on the shoulder of the motorway. It didn’t look like much was going on at all. But within a few minutes, the seemingly calm situation took a frightening twist...

Chris and Cru Kahui were twins, aged just three months old when they died in hospital, both suffering from traumatic brain injury. Their death was the result o a severe impact, either from direct blows or being hit, thrown or slammed against a hard surface.

Violent shaking was another possible cause, and couldn’t be ruled out. What was clear was that the twins' injuries weren’t accidental. Their death was the result of somebody using deliberate force against them. It was determined the injuries were most likely inflicted at the same time, by the same person. The twins had been murdered. So who was responsible?

In the early 80’s a series of attacks occurred in the twin city area of Minnesota, USA. The victims were all women. Police struggled in the initial part of the investigation. There was no physical evidence, and there were no witnesses.

But there was one person who wanted to help the police – the man responsible. He called 911 after committing the attacks. The tapes were released to the public in the hopes that somebody would recognise the voice. This is how he came to be known, as the “The weepy voiced killer”. But was he just taunting the police, or did he really want to be stopped?

On the 23rd of July 2008 young mother, Helen Munnings disappeared from the port city of Burnie, on the North West Coast of Tasmania, Australia.

She was last seen by the father of her child Adam Taylor, who picked her up for a drive that afternoon. His actions later that night were described as “interesting”. Extensive searches have been conducted, but no trace of Helen has ever been found. Did Helen run away? Did she commit suicide? Or was she murdered?

In the 1980's in Sydney Australia, Justice David Opas was shot dead outside his home and bombs were exploded at the homes of Justice Richard Gee and Justice Ray Watson. All three were Family Law Court judges.

After these attacks, the Parramatta Family Law Court building was bombed and there was an attempted assassination of Family Law Court solicitor Gary Watts. What was the connection between those attacks and the shooting murder of 25-year-old surfie Stephen Blanchard and the bombing of a Jehovah's Witness Kingdom Hall, killing Jehovas witness member Graham Wykes, and seriously injuring many other men, women and children.

For years police worked hard to crack the case known as the Family Court Murders, some of the most serious offences ever committed in Australia. Never before had judges or the courts themselves been under attack. But despite there best efforts, nobody was charged. A vicious, ruthless killer was free to roam the streets...
