Peter Sutcliffe

- Pp. 112-130 (19)

Dirk C. Gibson

Abstract

Better known in the U.K. as the Yorkshire Ripper, Peter Sutcliffe murdered prostitutes throughout England during the 1970s and 1980s. Vicious mutilations accompanied the killings. The murder weapons were simple tools like hammers, screwdrivers and a kitchen knife. This chapter described Sutcliffe in some detail, and examines the possibility of other crimes. The serial murders are described with respect to the MO, victimology, victims, number of victims, time frame and motive. Serial killer communication, both authentic and fraudulent, was a significant factor in this case. The investigation, trial and sentencing were discussed.
