Nicola Tallant chats to investigative journalist Lynne Kelleher about the death of Irishman Jason Corbett

He’s 30 years covering tales of murder and once began his day being briefed on the nightly body count of New York city, where he knocked on doors and fronted-up killers on the tough daily beat.

But tabloid man Brad Hunter says that despite covering hundreds of stories there have always been those that stayed with him - and decades into a career in murder he says that there are many victims he can’t forget.

Hunter tells Nicola Tallant about a career in the fast lane of crime journalism and about the stories that have made it into his new book Cold Blooded murder.

From religious zealots living secret double lives to seemingly normal couples who plot to kill, they discuss money, sex and crime from a shocking collection of killers and psychopaths who have marked his lengthy career.
