    The Yorkshire Ripper could be sent back to regular prison after psychiatrists have said he is no longer mentally ill.

    He was transferred to Broadmoor secure hospital in 1986 after being diagnosed with Paranoid Schizophrenia.
    Not sure someone can be cured of that though sure it can be managed with meds.

    not sure if this was right place to post this if not please move :)

    As long as he remains in prison and isn't set free, I'm good with it. How about you?

    Yep he's never getting out no matter what.
    So either way makes no difference.

    It can not be "cured" per se, but he can be stabilized with medication to a point where a mostly normal life (minus a few stray symptoms) becomes possible. Should he ever stop taking those medications, relapse becomes likely.

    Either way, it seems justice will be served, as it totally should be :)

    Yorkshire ripper link to unsolved Warwickshire schoolgirl murder


    This is the impish, innocent schoolgirl whose murderer has never been tracked down.

    But following painstaking research compelling evidence links the grisly 46-year-old crime to the Yorkshire Ripper, Peter Sutcliffe.

    Is Judith Roberts, whose body was discovered in a field on the outskirts of Tamworth, the sadistic serial killer’s unknown victim?

    With the help of historian and forensic psychology student Sarah Clark, the Sunday Mercury has also unearthed details of a letter warning of the impending murder.

    Sutcliffe, convicted of murdering 13 women and attempting to kill seven more, matched the description of a man spotted at the scene of the June 7, 1972, murder.

    A car seen at the spot was also uncannily similar to The Ripper’s own vehicle.
