Killer in the Woods

Channel 5

Unravelling the past of a sadomasochistic killer

Sixteen year old Leanne Tiernan went missing from Leeds City Centre in November 2000. It took nine months for police to find her body. Ten months later, a forensic investigation of hairs found on Leanne’s body led police to suspect poacher John Taylor for her murder. Killer in the Woods is the story of one man’s obsessive desire to control and kill women.
