The co-director of the National Centre for Cyberstalking Research (NCCR) at the University of Bedfordshire will appear on a TV show examining why people commit horrendous crimes and whether they can be considered ‘evil.’
Dr Emma Short (pictured) will appear in three episodes of the TV show Evil Up Close on the Crime & Investigation Network, airing on June 26 and July 3, both at 9pm, with another episode airing later in September.
In the series, she sheds light on the cases involving stalker William Jordan and Beverly Allitt, a nurse who murdered four children while working at a hospital in Lincolnshire.
Dr Short said: “It was challenging to look at the psychology around these crimes and discuss the theories that have been put forward to try and explain such terrible actions.
“These were extraordinary cases that received a lot of attention and horrified the public at the time.
“Behind that media interest it is most important to remember that these were real events that had an unimaginable effect on the families who lost loved ones as a result of the actions of these individuals.
“They continue to live with the devastation of that.”
