The now 21-year-old Kirk Anderson was standing outside The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Ewell, Surrey on September 14, 1977. He was getting on with his day but had no idea he was being watched by the woman he had broken off a relationship with in his late teens. (Part 1 of 2)
As more punches were thrown Christopher struggled but it was no use. He was now on the ground and felt something around his neck. He heard an engine slowly getting louder. It was the sound of the sit-on lawnmower.
In a moment of realisation, he knew he was either going to be strangled to death or mutilated.

We will also be posting direct links for tickets through our social media accounts on Saturday, March 16 so make sure you are following us if you want to come along.
Last year I spent a few days recording for a new HLN / CNN True Crime show called Vengeance. The episodes focused on the cases of Peter Morgan (covered in Season 3 - Episode 13) and Ann Huxley (coming later this season). I am not ultimately sure if I made the cut (as is the nature of these things) but if you are in the US maybe keep an eye out for me on the episodes due to air on April 28 and May 5!
