Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, peeps and creeps! This week, your gift from True Crime Creepers is the story of the Goose Green Stabbings. In 2003, 14 year old John was stabbed twice: once in the chest and once in the abdomen. Though he survived, his friendship with his best friend, 16 year old Mark, did not. John told police it was a crazed mask wearing stabbing man that stabbed him, but the truth was - it was Mark. Police thought that was the end of their investigation, until they got their hands on 46,000 pages of chat transcripts from an MSN chatroom Mark and John were highly involved in, and police would see that this case involved everything from British spies to the Queen herself as they sought to understand what happened between these two teenage boys.
