The Innocent Serial Killer

The Innocent Serial Killer

Original transmission date: 15/12/14

This BBC Panorama programme was the second collaboration between Inside Justice’s Louise Shorter and journalist Mark Daly of BBC Scotland about a nurse found guilty of murdering elderly patients.

Panorama: The Innocent Serial Killer presented new evidence to cast doubt on Colin Norris’ 2008 conviction. Experts discussed the possibility that all five women suffered low blood sugar due to natural causes, and a juror from the original trial described how he would have expected the case to be thrown out in light of the new evidence.

The case is already with the Criminal Cases Review Commission and the BBC will pass their findings on, which will hopefully help towards securing a successful appeal for Colin Norris.
