Child killer, Colin Pitchfork, whose early release from jail angered his victims’ families, is back to jail after he began to approach young women.
The 61-year-old, who was sentenced to life in prison in 1988, after strangling two 15-year-olds, Lynda Mann and Dawn Ashworth.
But he was released in September following 33 years in prison (read here and here).
He was arrested again on Friday, Nov. 19, after breaching the conditions of his license just two months after he was released.
He has been recalled over “concerning behaviours”, which reportedly included going up to young females during walks, reports The Mirror.
Barbara, the mother of one of Colin’s victims named Dawn, has said she is “pleased” to see him put away again.
She said: “I’m pleased that he has been put away and women and girls are safe and protected from him now.
“It’s a safer place when he’s behind bars and I won’t have to worry about other people being hurt by him for the time being. But there’s always the worry that he might get out again.
“He seems to have a lot of people on his side who give him the benefit of the doubt. But for now, I have to be pleased about the news.”
Pitchfork is reportedly at a closed prison and will have to wait until a parole meeting to see if he could be released again.
The Probation Service said: “Protecting the public is our priority so when offenders breach conditions and potentially pose a risk, we will return them to custody.”
Pitchfork was the first person to ever be convicted using DNA evidence when he murdered schoolgirls Lynda and Dawn, both 15-years-old.
