Manuel: Scotland's First Serial Killer by Allan Nicol

He will understand. In October , Manuel was freed from prison. Back living with his parents, he worked with the Scottish Gas Board with his father until October , when he was convicted of housebreaking and — after four years of freedom — was put back in jail, where he remained until November Episode one focuses on the fate of poor Mary McLauchlan, who is taken on her way back from a dance, dragged into a field by Manuel and sexually assaulted. This is based on an incident in when Manuel did indeed successfully conduct his own defence on a rape charge at Airdrie Sheriff Court.

McLaughlan, 29, testified against him and told the court he had threatened to kill her by decapitation. According to her evidence, Manuel appeared to gain pleasure from her fear, keeping her with him for around an hour and detailing how he planned to murder her, all while groping and kissing her. She was then stalked and brutally beaten by Manuel. The body was found in January , but it took two more years for Manuel to be brought to justice. Although Manuel was a known sex offender who had been working locally laying mains pipes for the gas board, and although he turned up to work on 4th January with scratch marks on his face, and although some of his clothes were missing, Lanarkshire Police did not have enough evidence to charge him.

Nine months later, Manuel committed murder again — this time upping the ante and taking three lives. On 17th September he entered the bungalow of Marion Watt, 45, her year-old daughter Vivienne and her sister Margaret Brown in High Burnside and shot them all. He was arrested and charged with the murder of his own family, having supposedly made an overnight round trip to cover his tracks. The police except, perhaps, for Muncie were convinced William was the culprit, and he was picked out of a line-up by two witnesses who claimed to have seen him en route.

He spent over two months in Barlinnie Prison, but was released due to lack of evidence. Meanwhile, Manuel found himself locked up in the same prison after his conviction for housebreaking. But after his release in November , he was free to kill again. In December, Manuel likely killed a taxi driver from Newcastle named Sydney Dunn, who was found dead on the Northumberland moorland with bullet holes and a slit throat. While he was later found posthumously guilty of the crime and a button from his jacket was found in the cab, there are some doubts about the case and whether the true murderer had been found.

Either way, this murder has been completely excluded from In Plain Sight.

There is no doubt, however, about the next one. Isabelle Cooke, 17, went missing on her way to meet her boyfriend on 28th December.

As in the Watt murders, he shot three members of the Smart family as they slept: Peter Smart, his wife Doris and their young son Michael. The bodies were not discovered until 6th January. He even used their car, and gave a lift to an unsuspecting policeman who was on his way to join the Cooke search party. Manuel seemed to be getting bolder. Manuel slipped up. A barman in a Glasgow pub became wary when a suspicious customer used new banknotes to pay for drinks — very unusual at the time. The police traced the serial numbers and — lo and behold — they had been withdrawn from the bank by Peter Smart before his death.
