A retired detective, Paul Stickler has turned criminologist and crime historian and explores the detail behind some of the most fascinating cases in criminal history. His experience in murder investigations coupled with his passion for history make his presentations absorbing, challenging, entertaining and informative. He has recently published his first book about a bizarre murder investigation in Hertfordshire just after the First World War. He is a member of the Crime Writers’ Association.
Paul has featured in a number of television and radio programmes about his career and his research into early twentieth century murders.
He studied history with the Open University obtaining a Bachelor’s degree (1997), graduated from the FBI academy in Quantico, Virginia with a post-graduate diploma in Law Enforcement (1997) and read criminology at Southampton Solent University for his Master’s degree (2013) specialising in the research of historical crime. He is a Visiting Fellow of Southampton Solent University and is in the early stages of reading for his PhD in history. His hobbies include gliding, high altitude walking and playing guitar (badly) and piano (even worse).
