Yorkshire Ripper victim’s son says NHS should ‘let him die’


THE son of a victim of the Yorkshire Ripper — in hospital after a suspected heart attack — yesterday said: “Let him die.”

Serial killer Peter Sutcliffe, 74, was rushed in three days ago with crushing chest pains.

Yesterday he remained handcuffed to a hospital bed under armed police guard as doctors treated him.

But Neil Jackson, 62, whose mum Emily was Sutcliffe’s second victim, blasted: “The NHS is in crisis because of the pandemic and there are millions more deserving of care than him.

“As far as I am concerned, let him die.

“It makes me sick taxpayers’ money should be used to treat someone like him when all he has ever contributed to society is tragedy and heartache.”

Sutcliffe stabbed Emily, 42, to death in Leeds in 1976.

He was jailed for life in 1981 for 13 murders. He has suffered angina and diabetes and is now almost blind.

On Wednesday, Sutcliffe was raced from HMP Frankland to the nearby University Hospital of North Durham.

A source said: “He’s got a low heart rate and high blood pressure. It doesn’t look good.”

The Ministry of Justice said it does not comment on individual prisoners.
