Yorkshire Ripper serial killer Peter Sutcliffe dies of coronavirus in hospital - BBC News

November 13, 2020 

The serial killer Peter Sutcliffe, known as the Yorkshire Ripper, has died in hospital at the age of 74. He had coronavirus.

Sutcliffe murdered 13 women across Yorkshire and the North West of England between 1975 and 1980. He was also convicted of the attempted murder of seven other women.

West Yorkshire Police have again apologised for the way some senior officers spoke at the time about some of Sutcliffe's victims, many of whom were sex workers. The force’s chief constable said that while some of the language and attitudes may have reflected wider society at the time they were wrong then, and wrong now.
