Serial Killers

The Search for the Yorkshire Ripper (1999)

Serial Killers

 

 

Brilliant  ITV1 documentary that takes a thorough look at the case of Peter Sutcliffe, a.k.a. The Yorkshire Ripper, a British serial killer, who between 1975-81, murdered 13 women & attempted to murder 7 more.. Sutcliffe would later claim that he heard ‘The Voice of God’ commanding him to kill prostitutes..

 

“West Yorkshire Police were criticised for the time they took in apprehending Sutcliffe, despite interviewing him nine times during the murder hunt. Owing to the sensational nature of the case, they were having to handle an exceptional volume of information, some of it seriously misleading, including a major distraction caused by a hoax phone-call purporting to be from the ‘Ripper’. Nevertheless, the 2006 Byford Report of the official enquiry agree with the criticism…” Wikipedia
