On January 1, 1993, Colin Ireland made a New Years resolution to become a serial killer… 3 months later he had brutally murdered 5 men. Brilliant episode of the UK documentary crime series ‘Real Crime‘ that investigates this horrific case through the words of the killer himself…
“Ireland said he was heterosexual — he had been married — and that he pretended to be gay only to befriend potential victims. It is unknown whether Ireland’s murders were sexually motivated. Ireland was highly organised. He carried a full murder kit of rope and handcuffs and a full change of clothes to each murder. After killing the victim he cleaned the flat of any forensic evidence linking him to the scene and stayed in the flat until morning in order to avoid arousing suspicion from leaving in the middle of the night.
He was jailed for life for the murders in December 1993 and remained imprisoned until his death in February 2012, at the age of 57…” Wikipedia
