A young girl WAYLAID AND BATTERED with a hedge stake while returning home from Mansfield on a warm summer evening. Four family members BUTCHERED in a blazing house just off Commercial Street. An old farmer repeatedly SPEARED by a hayfork in the mire of a rural farmyard. A drunken housewife found MURDERED IN A HAYSTACK at Worksop, a RAZOR KILLING and SUICIDE on Nottingham Road, and the mysterious woman’s skeleton discovered in the spoil of Sherwood Colliery tip. These, and other cases detailed here, show how often VIOLENT DEATH has visited Mansfield and North Nottinghamshire in the past. Drawing on two hundred years of reported crime in Mansfield and the surrounding area, this account reveals the GRIM CATALOGUE of foul deeds, the variety of LETHAL WEAPONS used – from a hedge stake to a mohair bootlace – and the age-old motives of GREED, JEALOUSY, forbidden desires and thwarted love that have so often led men and women to murder.
