Truly Animalistic: The murder of Peter Wrighton
Play • 42 min
On the morning of Saturday August 5th 2017, dog walkers out for a stroll near the village of East Harling came across what they thought was an injured man in the wooded walkway known as the Heath. When they went to assist him to his feet, they noticed he had a large open wound on his neck and there was blood across the other side of the path. They called 999 and police quickly arrived and cordoned off the scene. The injuries were so severe that they initially thought the man had been attacked by his own dogs, but, a much deadlier predator was on the loose.
