Peter Sutcliffe will be heard confessing to more evil crimes in a new documentary airing this week.

The Yorkshire Ripper, who murdered 13 women in a six-year killing spree, died at HMP Frankland from a combination of Covid-19 and heart disease in November 2020.

In the new tapes he talks about unsolved crimes, reports The Sun.

Chillingly, he also admitted that he was aiming to kill Olivia Reivers, the sex worker he was with when he was arrested in 1981.

Following his conviction, he spent three decades in the highly secure Broadmoor Hospital psychiatric hospital before being transferred to HMP Frankland in 2016.

On Channel 5’s The Ripper Speaks: The Lost Tapes, when asked if he was going to attack Olivia, he is heard saying, “Of course I was. That was the whole point.

Twelve of the Ripper’s victims, including Wilma McCann, Emily Jackson, Irene Richardson and Patricia Atkinson, Jayne McDonald, Jean Jordan, Yvonne Pearson, Helen Rytka, Vera Millward, Josephine Whitaker, Barbara Leach, and Jacqueline Hill.



“I didn’t pick them up for any other reason”

In another confession from beyond the grave, the serial killer admits to attacking 14-year-old schoolgirl Tracy Browne in August 1975, two months before murdering 28-year-old Wilma McCann.

He says, “I saw this Tracy Browne; He didn’t look 15, he looked 19 or 20.

“I was all dressed up. She was walking slowly down this path.

“I thought, ‘She’s probably one of those hookers’ because I had it in my head that Silsden must be full of hookers.”

He didn’t continue the attack, saying that a voice inside him told him to stop.

He said she was not “seriously injured” when in fact she suffered a fractured skull and needed brain surgery to save her life.

The show also features Coronation Street actor Bruce Jones-Les Battersby, who found victim Jean Jordan in a vacant lot in Manchester in 1977.

In a report after his death, prison ombudsman Sue McAllister expressed concern that Sutcliffe had to wait eight hours for safe transport back to prison after being released from the hospital.

He also criticized the use of restraints and the staff’s delay in removing them when instructed to do so.

The report also found that Sutcliffe, who went by the name Peter Coonan, was unable to call his wife Sonia, his next of kin, before he died.

It says: “Although much of the prison liaison with Mr Coonan’s next of kin was of good quality, we are disappointed that he was unable to speak directly to his next of kin when he was dying and that prison staff had to act as messengers for your personal messages.
