The Reykjavik Confessions

iceland_launcher_v2 Richard Smith from our ZMET global partner, BDRC Continental, sends along this interactive BBC story about a murder case in Iceland.

It is a fascinating read, and is a great example of memory distortion at work. The police investigators essentially browbeat a group of innocent people into confessing they committed these murders – although the evidence suggests they clearly did not.

In fact, even today, 40 years later, these folks still question whether they really might have been involved in the crimes, even though they have no memory of it whatsoever.
