Featuring:      JEANNETTE HENSBY

          True Crime Writer Jeannette Hensby continues to fascinate readers with the re-examination of complex true crime cases, that tend to have sketchy resolutions or have been considered miscarriages of justice.  Hensby takes the time to research the cases of her projects thoroughly, in order to unravel events that were previously adjudicated unjustly, and offer a different sometimes never before considered, alternate conclusion or perspective.  Jeannette Hensby's first book written about a true crime of the past titled, The Rotherham Trunk Murder  was a case of personal interest to her.  When she was about  nine years old her Grand-mother had told her about the crime, and the name of the person who committed it.  Finding an account of the crime in a book, in 2014, she was horrified to discover that the person they hanged was not the person that her grandmother named as the murderer.  Jeannette was also familiar with many of the persons involved in the hanging a man for a crime . . . he did not commit.  After retiring from a life in Social Care and Health Services, she was compelled to look into the matter herself; which turned into a book that details her research with her true life account interspersed throughout The Rotherham Trunk Murder.

* * * Jeannette was born and raised in Yorkshire, England. Her long career in Social Care and Health Services, and as a Director of Mental Health Services in the National Health Service, afforded a very keen insight into psychology. As an avid reader of true crime books, the psychological aspects fascinated her – what drove a person to become a killer was a question she pondered, and why she loved reading them.


While reading a historical book about  a man named Andrew Bagley,  who was hanged for the sexual assault and murder of 16 year old Irene Hart in 1936,  a sudden, frightening notion overcame her as she remembered clearly,  Andrew Bagley  was not the person that her grandmother had named as the killer – Bagley was innocent!  After much research and close examination of the all the evidence, forensic details and questions never asked, a shocking twist of corruption in the London appeals court is uncovered and exposes a person of interest that was overlooked; Could he be Irene Hart's real murderer?
