In Episode 301

In a small, quiet seaside town in 1991, the bodies of young nurse Lesley Howell and police officer, Trevor Buchanan, were found in a car filled with carbon monoxide.  Lesley wore headphones playing her favorite Christian music. She was surrounded by family photos. These deaths stunned the community and broke the hearts of family members.  What would cause these devout Baptists and parents of young children to take their own lives?

Lesley and Trevor did have one common struggle:  Their spouses were involved in a lengthy love affair. Both deeply religious, Lesley’s husband Colin played his role as a family man and a well-liked dentist while Hazel Buchanan lived her life as a teacher, a wife and a mother.  But they were living a lie.

The depravity and hypocrisy of this affair was a painful reality for Lesley and Trevor, but not everyone was convinced that they had resorted to a suicide pact.  Not until a surprise confession nearly twenty years later would the horrible truth come to light.

Join us at the quiet end for Indecency.  Infidelity is not a crime, but what this affair led to was one of the most twisted and memorable crimes in Ireland’s history.
