Sutcliffe To Leave Crowthorne's Broadmoor
It's reported Peter Sutcliffe is set to move out of Crowthorne's Broadmoor psychiatric hospital and back into jail after a mental health tribunal ruled him sane enough to do so.
The serial killer known as the Yorkshire Ripper, has spent 32 years inside the high-security institution in Crowthorne after murdering 13 women and attempting to murder seven more between 1976 and 1981.
The 70-year-old has been there since 1984 after he was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia after being jailed for life in 1981.
Sutcliffe, a former lorry driver from Bradford, now calls himself Peter Coonan.
The decision of the tribunal has been referred to the Ministry of Justice, which still needs to confirm the move.
A Ministry of Justice spokesman said: ``Peter Coonan will remain locked up and will never be released for his evil crimes.
``Decisions over whether prisoners are to be sent back to prison from secure hospitals are based on clinical assessments made by independent medical staff.
``The High Court ordered in 2010 that Peter Coonan should never be released. This was upheld by the Court of Appeal.
``Our thoughts are with Coonan's victims and their families.''
