A tale of Jimmy Savile’s teeth, a Page 3 Girl and the Yorkshire Ripper

by | 8th, November 2012

THE Sun is continuing with its story about Jimmy Savile the man is has dubbed “The BBC’s paedo” and the Yorkshire Ripper. The front pages reveals an obsession:

Friday November 4 : “Was BBC’s paedo also a killer?”

Tuesday November 7 : “RIPPER: SAVILE IS INNOCENT”

Peter Sutcliffe says Savile did not help him murder women. And if you can’t trust him, who can you trust?

Wednesday November 7: “Police quizzed Savile on ripper murders”

Ex-West Yorkshire policeman John Stainthorpe says :

“When the Ripper was really active one of the suspects put forward by members of the public was Jimmy Savile, strange as it may seem. Obviously it was not him, but he was interviewed along with many others.” He said whoever tipped off cops was “aiming in the right direction”, adding: “Child perverts soon become child killers.”

Only, the Yorkshire Ripper never murdered children.

Thursday November 8 : “RIPPER Cops Took Cast of Savile’s Teeth”

No less than FOUR  Sun writers tells us:

Sutcliffe NAMED Savile in police interviews and two of his victims were FOUND near Savile’s flat.

The flat was described by the Daily Mail as having “stunning panoramic view across the treetops”.

Irene Richardson was murdered in Soldier’s Fields, by Roundhay Park. Savile had a flat overlooking the park. Richardson’s body was found 72 yards from Savile’s flat. Sutcliffe attacked Marcella Claxton, 20, in May 1976. Sutcliffe drove her to Soldiers’ Fields, an expanse of playing fields next to the park. Savile could not have seen the attack from his flat. Claxton says Sutcliffe acted alone.

The Sun says:

In 1976 he picked up pregnant prostitute Marcella Claxton, 20, and attacked her in Roundhay Park — near a flat Savile owned. Marcella survived but lost her baby.

The Times noted:

Marcella Claxton is considered one of the lucky victims as she survived after being attacked with a hammer in May 1976. Sutcliffe later old police: “I just couldn’t go through with it. I could not bring myself to hit her again for some reason.”

In his book on the Yorkshire Ripper, Roger Cross, wrote that Claxton needed 52 stitches. He says Sutcliffe thrust £5 in her hand and drove off. She says as she called the police from a phone box she saw Sutcliffe drive past. He was alone.

As for facts, the Daily Star adds some of its own:

He had already killed twice when he attacked Marcella, then 20, near the Leeds pub, battering her with a hammer and stabbing her 25 times. Amazingly she survived, but has never talked about her ordeal.

She was not stabbed. But let’s no debate the crimes of the Yorkshire Ripper, a man for whom the death penalty would be apt, who got away with it for so long because he was cunning and the police viewed prostitutes as something less than women, especially a black one like Marcella Claxton.
