The Real Narcos UK’s ‘Gerbil’ episode was due to show an interview with retired tec David Moran.
The former murder detective revealed gangland thug Carroll’s bizarre crime ritual where he shaved off all his body hair before carrying out shootings — to avoid leaving DNA behind.
Ex-Strathclyde Police officer David said: Carroll carried out what was by then a well-established routine that he did before the crime.
Hed shave all his body hair off and shave his head as close as he could get it to avoid leaving DNA anywhere.
At the conclusion of the shooting he would douse his body in diesel to eliminate any firearms residue.
An enforcer for the Daniel clan, hed kidnap dealers from rival mobs, then subject them to horrific violence in order to secure cash, drugs or weapons.
They were dubbed alien abductions — because victims told cops theyd no memory of what had happened to them.
The programme was to tell how the Daniel-Lyons drugs war started after a £20,000 cocaine stash was nicked in 2001.
Ex-gangster Ian Blink MacDonald, 57, claims shootings and stabbings are part of everyday life in Glasgow.
Billy Paterson, 38, was caged in 2015 for at least 22 years after being found guilty of Carrolls murder.
