About this podcast

A Murder Without End is the story of how the death of Joshua Hayes in Jacksonville, Florida, led to a tragedy in Scotland, to one of the longest extradition battles in British legal history, and how one mother fought for justice beyond anyone’s expectations. Award-winning journalist Tristan Stewart-Robertson takes you on a journey across decades and continents, and brings to light how the act of murder doesn’t just kill the victim.
