the Ughill House Shootings

Trigger Warning this episode discusses suicide, and the deaths of children.

When Ian Wood climbed to the top of the tower of Amiens Cathedral he claimed he intended to end his own life, as part of a suicide pact with his girlfriend, but was this the truth, or a rouse to support his defence.
