Axe Killer Thomas McCulloch Gets Job Chopping Down Trees

by | 17th, September 2011

THOMAS McCulloch was armed with an axe when he murdered a nurse, a patient and a young policeman in Carstairs back in 1976. They had escaped from Carstairs state mental hospital in Lanarkshire.
Armed with homemade weapons and an axe, they butchered a nurse, a patient and a young policeman.They split man’s head with an axe. They scalped another victim with the same weapon.
And why are we telling you this now? Well, he’s on staggered release from Noranside open prison, near Forfar, Angus. The Dumbarton Reporter notes:

Since he is originally from Clydebank, West Dunbartonshire Council (WDC) is duty bound to find McCulloch a home in the area.

The Mirror completes the story: 

And recently he completed a course at a nature reserve, where he helped clear a pathway by cutting trees and shrubs.

Yep – he’s been chopping down trees.
