Advisory: violence, strong language.

When three young men disappeared in a small Yorkshire town, the finger of suspicion pointed to the local troublemaker. Paul Anthony Hobson was the president of the West Riding chapter of the Hell's Angels. He and his rag-tag gang of impressionable followers were behind most of the antisocial behaviour in Garforth, near Leeds. But was loud-mouthed Tony Hobson a killer? Even hardened detectives were shocked by what they found.

Good podcast, Im from Garforth and have heard details about it before. Anthony's comments are very interesting as I heard about Watson living in Bradford and recently heard he is back in Garforth. What type of things did he do when you worked with him? From reading and hearing about the case, it actually sounds like he killed 2 of them and Hobson did 1.

Thanks for getting in touch, Anthony. It's always helpful to receive feedback and information. You can also contact the team through our website psycho-killer.co. There's also an extended interview with DCS Bob Taylor in which he talks about the Hobson case.

BTW I realised I called him Andy Wilson at the start of my comment . He went by that name for a while , probably under a new identity . But started using his other name Watson as the dust settled .

I found this interesting because I had the misfortune to find myself working with Andy Wilson at Bradford College in the mid 90s . Wilson ended up gaining full time employment at Bradford college , after attending day release from prison and learning ceramics at the college. The cheif technian of the art dept at the time was a born again christian and Watson had charmed her with his remorse and humility , also he had been a model student. She somehow managed to offer Watson a full time job at the college as a ceramics technian. This post ensured his early relese from prison on license .Watson was a bully and a psychopath like the type I have never experienced in my life. Working with this guy was intollerable , he got promoted to a mid level manegerial roll and basically trolled everyone he worked with. He was re arrested in 2001 _2 and recalled to prison for allegidley sexually abusing his underaged stepdaughter . Last I heard of him he was in an open prison in Doncaster. Let me tell you now , this is one evil individual .
