Victims: 13 killed and 7 other attempted murders.
Between 1975 and 1980, Peter Sutcliffe killed 13 women and attempted to murder 7 more. His youngest victim, Jayne McDonald, was just 16. Dubbed ‘The Yorkshire Ripper’ by the press, Sutcliffe was eventually caught for driving with false number plates, despite having been interviewed 9 times previously during the 5-year investigation. Sutcliffe died in prison in November 2020, aged 74 after contracting Covid 19.
