Where is Peter Sutcliffe now?

Sutcliffe died in November 2020.

The ashes of the Yorkshire Ripper were sent to his brother after his death and he posted these to two of Sutcliffe’s friends.

It is also believed that some of the serial killer’s fans were given portions of the ashes.

Reports suggest that Sutcliffe’s ashes were later buried in Yorkshire.

Neil Jackson, whose mum was killed by Sutcliffe, said of the dead serial killer: “They should take him to a tip.”

How did the Yorkshire Ripper die?

Sutcliffe died in hospital aged 74 on November 13, 2020 and the cause of death was recorded as being SARS Cov2 pneumonia.

He had tested positive for coronavirus and the post-mortem found that his lungs had been “heavy, solid and airless” – pointing to coronavirus as the main cause of death.

He also had diabetes and heart disease, which were found to have contributed to his death.

Who were his victims?

The title of Yorkshire Ripper was given to Sutcliffe because of the way he mutilated the bodies of the women he killed between 1975 and 1980.

He is thought to have viewed killing sex workers as his “mission from God”, although some of the the murderer’s victims were not sex workers.

His first two victims were killed in Chapeltown, which contained Leeds’ main red light district at the time.

This led police to announce they were looking for a “prostitute killer”.
