Confessions of a Hitman: The John Childs Story   

Synopsis

In an exclusive one-hour special, Confessions of a Hitman: The John Childs Story investigates Britain’s most prolific hitman and one of the most mysterious, cold-blooded killers ever known.

What turned a married father of two into one of Britain’s most dangerous hitmen? In 1979 John Childs pleaded guilty to the murders of six people, including a ten-year-old child. He claimed to have set up a contract killing business with two other notorious criminals, where they disposed of the victims in his East London council flat. However, many questions remain over the truth of his chilling confessions.

Did he really kill more people than the Moors Murderers or is he actually a pathological liar?
