THE NARCISSISTIC TEENAGE KILLER WHO WANTED TO TURN BACK THE YEARS, TO A TIME WHEN HE HADN’T BLUDGEONED & STABBED HIS PARENTS TO DEATH. ANALYSIS BY DR. JANE
Eighteen year old Brian Blackwell was clearly a gifted student, he would sail through his education with ease, getting top marks for his final school exams, which would, under normal circumstances have earned him his longed for place at medical school. However normal circumstances were not on Blackwell’s agenda. Because while he was on an end of school celebratory first class holiday to the States with his 18 year old girlfriend, funded fraudulently on his father’s credit cards, Blackwell’s parents were lying bludgeoned and stabbed to death in the opulent family home in a quiet village near Liverpool.Blackwell was a very bright individual, but he was also an indulged one, and when the holiday of a lifetime, that would include stays in presidential hotel suites, was costing over £30,000 it was just one fraudulent expense too many for his well-off parents to indulge. Blackwell’s sense of entitlement and grandiosity took over and he killed his father, Sydney, 73 and mother Jacqueline, 6. The following day would fly first class with his girlfriend to New York.Blackwell would make British legal history by being the first person in the UK to rely on a diagnosis of Narcissistic Personality Disorder to answer the charge of manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility rather than a murder charge.In this episode of Why Killers Kill - Analysis of Murder with Dr. Jane you’ll hear what happened on that fateful night in July 2004 when he was finally challenged by his ever doting parents and what likely led to Blackwell’s state of mind culminating in his killing of his mum and dad.
