Liar spoilers: How did Andrew Earlham REALLY die? Did Laura Nielson murder her rapist?

A similar shot was also seen this evening with a single kayak moving in the opposite direction of Andrew’s body. Could this hint his death was not a suicide?

Leading actress Joanne explained her shock at tonight’s ending, explaining: “I was surprised when I was told the ending.

“I was like, ‘Oh! Okay… right, interesting.’ Hopefully viewers will be surprised as well, which is what you want. We do end on a sort of cliffhanger,” she told TV magazine.

Fans were mixed in their reactions that Andrew finally faced his comeuppance, but questioned whether Laura or DI Vanessa Harmon (Shelley Conn) were now murderers.

Woman who killed her daughter’s rapist will not face murder charges, prosecutors say

A South African woman who stabbed a man to death and severely injured two others after allegedly catching them raping her daughter has been told she will not face murder charges, following a public outcry. 

The woman, who has been dubbed “Lion Mama” by the South African media, told police she had stabbed the three men at an unoccupied house in the village of Qumbu in the Eastern Cape, after she found them attacking her daughter. 

She said she had been told about the attack by the 18-year-old cousin of the man who died and had tried to call the local police but received no answer.

When she got there, she found the three men taking it in turns to rape her daughter and stabbed them all repeatedly until they collapsed, she said. The mother has not been named in order to protect the identity of her daughter.

The 56-year-old reportedly ran 3km with a kitchen knife after

Double murder rapist poses with ‘party pal’ air rage thug who …

A convicted rapist who murdered a couple in their home partied with a notorious air rage thug who sexually assaulted a female flight attendant.

A photograph shows killer Krzysztof Gadecki and crazed Andrew Tosh drinking vodka together as it emerged the pair were “pretty good mates”.

The image was captured months before heroin addict Gadecki, 38, fatally stabbed Ronald Kidd, 40, and American mum-of-three Holly Alexander, 37, in Dundee last year.

Gadecki, a Polish national, was sentenced to 26 years in prison on Tuesday.

‘They did not deserve this death’ Double knife murder rapist caged for brutally slaughtering couple in their own flat

A convicted rapist who stabbed a couple to death in their home has been ordered to spend at least 26 years in prison.

Heroin addict Krzysztof Gadecki, 38, had denied murdering Ronald Kidd, 40, and Holly Alexander, 37, at their flat in Dundee on the grounds of self-defence.

But a jury at the High Court in Edinburgh took just 40 minutes to convict him.

Sentencing him to life with a minimum of 26 years, judge Lord Boyd of Duncansby said: “These were brutal murders of two people committed in their own home.

“Whatever difficulties they had experienced in their lives, they did not deserve this death.”

Judge Lord Boyd said Holly Alexander (left) and Ronald Kidd (right) ‘did not deserve this death’ at the hands of Krzysztof Gadecki (centre)

Rapist found guilty of murder of Sarah Strobel gets 25 to life

A convicted Suffolk rapist found guilty of killing a woman four years ago was sentenced Wednesday to 25 years to life in prison, prosecutors said.

Fernando Romualdo, 29, of Huntington Station, was convicted of second-degree murder in June after a two-week trial.

The body of the victim, Sarah Strobel, 23, was discovered by a hiker Oct. 3, 2013, at the Froehlich Farm Nature Preserve in Huntington Station.

Romualdo was in an upstate prison for raping a juvenile female when he was charged in 2016 with killing Strobel, who was also a Huntington Station resident and a 2008 graduate of Whitman High School.

“While we understand the jurors’ decision, we feel the verdict was based, in part, on sympathy and passion and not solely on the weight of the evidence,” his attorney Craig McElwee, of Hauppauge, said in a statement after the verdict.

Michael Cardamone, 50, is facing a pre-sentencing hearing at the Victorian Supreme Court sitting in Wangaratta after pleading guilty to murdering his 49-year-old neighbour, also known as Karen Chetcuti-Verbunt,

DNA in 1994 murder points to serial rapist, not 2 men serving life, court filing claims

New forensic testing suggests two men serving life sentences for a 1994 rape and murder in Chicago were wrongfully convicted because DNA from the victim’s underwear is linked to a serial rapist, a petition filed Monday in Cook County court alleges.

The DNA from the underwear matches the serial rapist, who is not named in the filing, with “almost scientific certainty,” the filing states. DNA found under the victim’s fingernails and on her sweatshirt does not match the men serving time for the crime, but the serial rapist could not be excluded as the source of that DNA, the petition said.

A Cook County jury convicted Nevest Coleman and Darryl Fulton in the April 1994 rape and murder of Antwinica Bridgeman about three years after the crime.

At the time of the slaying, Coleman worked as a respected, well-liked member of the groundskeeping crew at Comiskey Park, court records show. Fulton lived near
