Man Who Killed His Neighours Changed Name But Was Ready To Strike Again
HARRY Street was known as Barry Williams when he killed five people in 1978. He had deveoped an irrational hatred of his neighbours, complaining at the noise they made. He was tried, admitted to five counts of manslaughter, was found guilty and rehoused in Broadmoor mental hospital.
He got out in 1993. He changed his name. He got married. He was rehoused, this time in Hall Green, Birmingham. He lived ther with his wife and 18-year-old daughter.
And he set about making his neighbours’ lives a misery. He complained about the noise they made.
Police were called. They found guns and a home-made bomb at his home. Only then did they realise who they were dealing with.
Yesterday, he appeared at Birmingham Crown Court. He pleaded guilty to making an improvised explosive device.
