9 The Murder of Julia Wallace – Talk by Paul Stickler

Paul Stickler, a retired Police Officer with Hampshire Constabulary, with a keen interest in historical murders, returns by popular demand to retell another mystery…
In January 1931, having been fooled into a false appointment, Julia Wallace’s husband returned home to find his wife bludgeoned to death. But was it all a colourful and dramatic false alibi or was he lured from his home so that the real killer could carry out his gruesome task?
