A shocking documentary recalling eyewitness accounts about one of the worst crimes ever committed in British History. Michael Robert Ryan stalked the streets of Hungerford in Berkshire with a handgun and 2 semi automatic rifles killing 16 people including his mother before – as usual – killing himself. Fifteen other people were injured and no motive has ever been established.
There was extensive press comment on this, suggesting the relationship was ‘unhealthy’ and that Ryan was “spoiled” by his mother. A Guardian headline described Ryan as a “mummy’s boy”.
Ryan – born 18 May 1960 -was a bachelor and had no children.
