Secrets of staged murders to be uncovered by serial killer expert in Coventry show

A true crime writer and serial killer expert will be uncovering the secrets of staged murders when she brings her latest show to Coventry as part of a UK tour.

Cheish Merryweather will be hosting a new talk for true crime enthusiasts titled ‘Murder: Staged Live’ at Coventry Building Society Arena on Friday, December 6.

The event is also set to feature a live psychopath test and audience members will be given the chance to be assessed by Cheish.

Cheish, who has appeared on BBC TV and radio, is the founder of Crime Viral which is one of the fastest-growing true crime communities with more than 350,000 followers.

The two-hour talk will include in-depth forensics, reconstructed real-life crime scene walk-throughs and a deep dive into cases that have not been seen on stage before.

Cheish, who is a psychologist and psychopathy expert, will be shining a light on why 90% of people believe they can get away with murder.

She said: “The ‘CSI effect’ has created a new type of killer – one that is forensically aware and is out to mislead an investigation.

“’Murder: Staged’ will explore the lies embedded in crime scenes and share the expertise from those who dig deep for the truth.

“There will also be a live psychopath test which will be a good indication of who we really should be keeping a close eye on.”

The event will take place in the auditorium at Coventry Building Society Arena at 7.30pm on Friday, December 6.

It continues the venue’s expansion into the true crime genre, after hosting The Real Manhunter Live earlier this year.

Jenni Ford, Director of Sales and Marketing at Coventry Building Society Arena, said: “This is going to be an unmissable evening for true crime fans in Coventry and across the West Midlands.

“’Murder: Staged’ follows on from a string of sell-out shows from Crime Viral over the last five years, with the audience in the UK continuing to grow for true crime events.

“We’re expecting a sell-out crowd for this show in our auditorium.”
