The Shankill Butchers orchestrated the most vicious reign of serial murders in British history. Devoted followers of Lenny Murphy, a high-school dropout who attended the trials of IRA gunmen in order to learn the law, the Butchers' gang played an elusive cat and mouse game with police that left homicide detectives baffled by the clues and horrified by the crime scenes. The true identity of Lenny Murphy's confidant, Mr. A, as well as his whereabouts, remain a mystery.
