Peter William Sutcliffe (born 2 June 1946) is a British serial killer who was dubbed by the press "The Yorkshire Ripper" during his crime spree. In 1981 Sutcliffe was convicted of murdering 13 women and attempting to murder seven others.Sutcliffe had regularly used street-walkers in Leeds and Bradford. His outbreak of violence towards them seems to have originated with an argument over payment, but he later claimed to have been sent on a mission to kill prostitutes by the voice of God. In a meeting with his family shortly after his arrest he was heard to say that "the women I killed were filth – bastard prostitutes who were littering the streets. I was just cleaning up the place a bit."He carried out his murder spree over a five year period, during which the public were especially shocked by the murders of some women who were not prostitutes. When arrested in January 1981 for driving with false number-plates, police questioned him about the killings and he confessed that he was the perpetrator.At his trial, he pleaded not guilty to murder on grounds of diminished responsibility, owing to a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia, but this defence was rejected by a majority of the jury. He is serving twenty concurrent sentences of life imprisonment, currently in Broadmoor High Security Hospital. After his conviction, Sutcliffe began using his mother's maiden name and became Peter William Coonan.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 confirmed the validity of the criticism.The High Court dismissed an appeal by Sutcliffe in 2010, confirming that he would serve a whole life tariff and would never be released from prison.
