Yorkshire Ripper Arrested

This day way back in 1981, a serial killer that was given the title of “The Yorkshire Ripper” was arrested. It turns out, he had killed at least 13 women, and caused havoc for 5 years. From 1975 and 1980 and even tried to kill off 7 others. He was charged with murder and is was given life in prison, to be served consecutively. They tried to let him go in 2010, but there was no chance.

This is definitely one of the more notorious killers for modern history. Sometimes these real life stories are much harder than the movies that I’ve reviewed on this blog. There is a series of shows and movies that you can watch that are set with the back drop of these things. It was known as "Red Riding" and one of their releases/shows had this killer in the cross hairs, but it isn't a direct biopic or anything like that. The Yorkshire Ripper went without getting caught for so long, just like John Wayne Gacy, and ended up getting pulled over with the wrong plates!

If you are interested in learning more about this criminal, you can purchase "The Yorkshire Ripper: The In-Depth Study of a Mass Killer and His Methods" for under a dollar. You can purchase that by clicking here, and if you do get it, drop me a line and review it for my blog, I could use some help. More reviews are coming soon.

  1. I love the Red Riding series, the first and second films are amazing while I found the third to be only average.
