STEPHEN Griffiths the Crossbow Cannibal: Only one front page leads with Stephen Griffiths, the Crossbow Cannibal who despite the name has been linked to the undigested remains found of one Suzanne Blamires. He is also accused of killing Shelley Armitage and Susan Rushworth.

“He dreamed of stretch in UK’s toughest prison”

It’s HMP Wakefield.

A prison insider revealed: “He said he used to look up at the high walls and bars over the windows and think what it would be like to be inside.

Griffiths said the last time he walked around the jail was about three weeks before he was arrested. He said he had a sort of vision that he would be locked up in Wakefield very soon.”

They are a little spooky, The Addams….

“Griffiths treated the situation like he was gathering information for his PhD. He was asking questions about procedure and seemed fascinated by the day-to-day workings of the prison.”

The Daily Star has been talking to prostitutes who knew Griffiths:

One, aged 35, said she was stunned when Griffiths gave his name in court as “The Crossbow Cannibal”.

 Yeah. We prefer “The Runt”.

She said: “He was like a brother to me for years. He fed me, washed my clothes and took me in when I had nowhere to go. He even offered to protect me while I was out on the streets. He told me I’d do much better business if I went with him to Sheffield, Barnsley and Doncaster. He said he went regularly to red-light districts down there and there was more cash to be made than in Bradford. He offered to take me there and keep an eye on me while I was with punters.”
