Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe 'planning his own Jehovah's Witness funeral' at Broadmoor
10 February 2015
While Charles Manson is busy avoiding being displayed in a glass coffin by his now ex-fiancée, Peter Sutcliffe is managing his own mortality within the confines of Broadmoor hospital.
The Yorkshire ripper apparently met with funeral directors to plan his own send-off.
Sutcliffe, 68, contacted Holmes and Family funeral directors, whose office is three miles away from the high security hospital in Berkshire.
He apparently wishes for the ceremony to be performed in line with his Jehovah’s Witness beliefs.
Sutcliffe was handed 20 life sentences for brutally murdering 13 women in the North of England between 1975 and 1980, and attempting to murder seven others.
Police believed his killing spree started after he was conned out of money by a prostitute and her pimp.
However, Sutcliffe later claimed the voice of God had commanded him to undertake the killings.
