CrimeMagazine.com - The bizarre life and grisly death of an Irish conwoman, JULIA HOLMES - June 2016

JULIA HOLMES, the three-times married but never divorced Irish grifter was wanted on both sides
Holmes with her third husband Tom Ruttle
of the Atlantic and spent many years on the run from the FBI, the PSNI (Police Service of Northern Ireland) and an Garda Siochana (Police in the Irish Republic).  She became a confidence trickster at a young age and began using up to 20 different aliases to help her ply her fraudulent trade.  In the early 1980s, she crossed the Canadian border into the USA and made her way down south to Texas. Once there, she and her new husband schmoozed with Republic Party officials including then Vice President, Dan Quayle while she ran a real estate racket selling non-existent land in Ireland and conned her Texan friends out of more than half a million dollars.
Holmes spent 27 months in a Texan prison before being deported back to Northern Ireland where she set herself up as a “sports guru” and psychologist and tried to befriend members of both the Irish and English national rugby teams.
When she was charged with defrauding a man in Northern Ireland out of £18,000 and involvement in a property scam worth one million pounds, she fled south to the Irish Republic. As soon as she settled in County Limerick, she established a new identity and found a new husband. In Limerick, even as the police net closed in around her, she made a fortune selling “fake honey” to gullible supermarkets and upmarket shop owners. Knowing that she would soon be captured, she went into hiding. She was last seen in Askeaton, Co. Limerick on March 14, 2015. One month later, her badly decomposing body was found by burglars attempting to rob the isolated farmhouse she shared with her third husband.  You can read her tragic story on CrimeMagazine.com here.

The Peculiar Sex Life of Adolf Hitler by Siobhán Pat Mulcahy - Amazon eBook, 498 pages, BUY HERE - €5.25


HITLER'S ABUSIVE childhood, his mother fixation, his inner sense of failure and depression, his poor health, his warped philosophy and sexual impotence, his drug addiction and Parkinson’s disease [from 1935], his predominant homosexual tendencies and his ‘perversions’ all affected his attempts to have romantic liaisons with the opposite sex. The fact that he had undersized genitals and only one testicle did not help his cause or his confidence when dealing with women,” (Siobhan Pat Mulcahy: 2015)  View Table of Contents...
His Munich chauffeur, Julius Schreck fulfilled Hitler's fantasies about the great love between a powerful man and his obedient servant. One of Hitler’s most treasured possessions was a love letter written by the homosexual Bavarian-King Ludwig to his coachman and lover for 20 years, Richard Hornig, for which he had paid a fortune when it came up for auction. 
…The other man in the Landsberg love triangle was Rudolf Hess (b.1894-d.1987) described politely by some scholars as “a somewhat neurotic member of the Nazi party”. Gay lawyer, Erich Ebermayer (Ebermayer Diary: 1959) said: “In view of all who have an intimate knowledge of the circumstances, Hess, known in Party circles as ‘Black Emma,’ was for many years the Fuhrer’s partner, especially during their joint detention in Landsberg.” Ebermayer pointed out that after his release from prison in 1925, Hess served for several years as Hitler’s personal secretary in spite of having “no official rank in the Nazi Party”.

Hitler is known to have had seven “heterosexual” relationships. And though he had rejected the Catholic Church during WW1, he chose Catholic, convent-educated teenagers as his ideal [Aryan] woman. He also enjoyed the company of women, usually actresses, with sexual experience who were not afraid to indulge his darkest fantasies.
Five of the seven women Hitler had sexual contact with committed suicide and the other two attempted suicide but failed. Four of the women were aged 16 or 17 when he first made sexual advances toward them. (Henriette Hoffmann was aged only 13 when he molested her but they did not have a relationship

The Peculiar Sex Life of Adolf Hitler - IRISH EXAMINER review: April 2016

Julius Schreck, Hitler's Munich chauffeur, occasional bodyguard and doppelganger, fulfilled the German dictator's fantasy of the love between a powerful man and his obedient and loyal servant. They were lovers from 1931 until Schreck's death from meningitis in 1936.

ADOLF HITLER, the man responsible for the deaths of more than 70 million people continues to divide historians and researchers. What was the origin of his evil? How could such a thing have happened?
A few years ago, I wrote an article for CrimeMagazine.com called ‘The real Adolf Hitler’. The article received over 30,000 hits on the internet in the days following publication. It seems people continue to be fascinated by him. During my research, I discovered that the German dictator liked Catholic convent school girls and had many homosexual partners. My interest in his life increased. If a man’s sexuality cannot tell you who he really is or was, then nothing else will. VIEW BOOK SAMPLE
The Peculiar Sex Life of Adolf Hitler is the culmination of almost two years writing and research. It analyses all the phases of Hitler’s sexual experiences: His early mother fixation, his long-term homosexual phase, and his final years as a “reluctant heterosexual”.

TRUE CRIME WRITER - The Wimbledon Tennis Killer - July 2015 on CrimeMagazine.com

Other tennis  players have been convicted of theft, tax evasion, embezzlement, and drug offenses but only one Wimbledon player has ever been convicted of murder. Vere St. Leger Goold had money, style and good looks and his adoring fans expected him to win the Wimbledon final.  He had battled so hard to get there. Instead, the “wild Irishman” with a razor sharp volley and magnificent backhand lost the match – which should have been his finest hour. Years later, he would be arrested in Marseilles with a dead woman's head in a "hat box".

True Crime Writer - IRELAND'S DRIPPING KILLER, KATE WEBSTER - published in CrimeMagazine.com - October 2014

VICTORIAN Britain was horrified by a 30-year-old Irish woman who murdered her employer, dismembered the body, threw bits of it into the river Thames, boiled the head (and other body parts) and sold the fat as "dripping" in local pubs. She blamed two innocent men for the crime and when that didn't work, she pretended to be pregnant so that the judge wouldn't give her the death penalty.
 Such was her notoriety that Madame Tussaud's rushed to create a wax statue of her which remained on display in London for 80 years. Read the story of the DRIPPING KILLER on CRIMEMAGAZINE.COM  HERE
