Below is a short excerpt on how the writer reported on the case for The Straits Times: This is the true story of a killer who went on a world tour to hunt.
British Serial Killer John Martin was no ordinary criminal. Compared with other murderers, he was a master of his own class because he had a dark skill that shocked even the most hardened cops. This skill helped him to escape and avoid detection after each murderous rampage.
In just a few months in 1995, his crime impacted 6 countries - United Kingdom, Belize, Singapore, Thailand, South Africa and Canada – and sent a shockwave globally. How could one man inflict so much harm in such a short time?
