The idea of a homeless man murdering an entire family is pretty horrific. But that's the true story of Aaron Barley, a man who caught the attention of the Wilkinson family when he was shivering and begging for change outside their local Tesco supermarket in 2016. They welcomed him into their home and gave him all the necessities to kickstart his life - food, shelter at a youth hostel, and even some paying odd jobs. And then, the normal Wilkinson family became a murdered family.
A year after the Wilkinson family took Barley in, he went on a drug-fueled killing rampage and stabbed the wife and teenage son to death while they were sleeping peacefully. He had been acting strangely before the murders in a way no one could explain. When you look at the big picture, the facts about the Wilkinson family murders are unfathomable.
