Murderer Roger Severs Case Study

In mid-November 1993, Derek Severs (68) and his wife Eileen (69) of Hambleton, Leicestershire, disappeared without informing anyone. This created suspicion among their friends and neighbors, who then informed the police.

On November 18, after a week of this incident, police searched the bungalow of the couple.

They found the neat and tidy house was totally messed up, and the carpets from the kitchen and bathroom were removed.

On inquiring their son, Roger, he said his parents are on vacation. However, police could not find any trip-related evidence, and soon their son was arrested for being suspected of his parents' murder.

An in-depth forensic investigation was carried out. Several attempts have been made to tidy up the house.

However, investigators found blood in the bathroom and the garage of the house.

The blood stain pattern analysis pointed towards a brutal attack.

Blood and yellow fiber trails led the officers to the car that was totally messed up with mud, and this arose suspicion.

The mud samples from the vehicle were examined and found to contain constituents like quartz, calcite, and ironstone.

Also, a combination of plant materials was found in the vehicle, and the presence of grass traces like alder, oak, and hawthorn was common in English woodland. 2% of the mud sample consisted of rarely found horse chestnuts.

With this known composition, experts narrowed down the origin of the sample to specific areas.

And when these areas were searched, the officer, Armley Wood, found an area of soil littered with broken branches.

Here, the buried bodies of Derek and Eileen were discovered. They have been ferociously attacked and wrapped in a yellow blanket before being buried.

The soil heap on top of the bodies was analyzed and proved to be from their bungalow’s garden.

Roger, on November 13, returned to his parents' house drunk and demanded money.

He killed his mother when she refused to give him money. When his father returned home, he killed him too.

Roger Severs admitted his crime of killing his parents but blamed his parents for their irresponsible behavior. However, he was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment.

Note: This is only a glimpse of one of a few case studies that we might cover. All case studies are subject to change as per current trends and developments, except a few famous ones from the past.
