"I will be bringing together criminology and forensic psychology alongside real-life chilling stories all about some of the world’s most notorious cold-blooded killers.”

The talk will take place on Thursday, October 14 at The Leadmill on Leadmill Road in the city centre; and will include the topics: how to raise a serial killer and how to spot a psychopath.

Cheish added: “Most serial killers and psychopaths are described as having highly manipulative personalities which means their crimes can go undetected for years.

"These talks aim to educate, fascinate and contribute to the ongoing conversation surrounding true crime with an injection of dark humour along the way.”
