Rurik Jutting: ‘The Wind in the Willows’ Killer ‘Confesses’ To Being An Educated Banker

Rurik Juttin


RURIK Jutting is accused of murdering two women in Hong Kong. The dead women are Sumarti Ningsih, 25, and Jesse Lorena, 32.

The media round-up, focusing on Rurik Jutting, who “appears to have mysteriously quit his job in the days around the first murder” ( Mail ).

The Sun : “I’ve been taken by the devil”. The paper produces the above image and quote.

EMAILS to the Brit banker charged with murdering two prostitutes get the reply: “Please contact someone who is not an insane psychopath.”  Ex-public schoolboy Rurik Jutting, 29, faces magistrates today over the double killing.

The prostitutes’ rotting remains were found in his Hong Kong flat, with one stuffed in a case.

It wasn’t quite the confession The Sun bills it as. Jutting wrote:

  “I am out of the office. Indefinitely. For urgent enquiries, or indeed any enquiries, please contact someone who is not an insane psychopath. For escalation please contact God, though suspect the devil will have custody. (Last line only really worked if I had followed through . . )”

You see. He said I’m not there but if you need help try to get it from someone whose not a nujob. And if it is really urgent, call God.

It is not known if Jutting wrote the message before leaving his £350,000-a-year job at Bank of America last week, or if someone else changed it.

So much for that, then.

The Sun has more, though. The man who is accused to killing two women is being profiled.

Someone who studied with Jutting at Cambridge University tells the Sun Jutting  was “obsessed with rowing, going to the gym and having a muscular physique.”

The “pal” says:

 “No one can believe that Rurik seems to have turned into the real American Psycho.”

It is unbelievable. No-one who knows Rurik believes it. But…

“He was taking cocaine with prostitutes in his luxury apartment, almost like he was trying to live up to an overtly masculine, heterosexual stereotype — just like Bateman. Maybe he was living a lie with the prostitutes and something just snapped when he was with them.”

Yeah, maybe. Or maybe not.

The Guardian  sticks to the facts:

Rurik George Caton Jutting was accused of the murder of Sumarti Ningsih on 27 October and the murder of an “unknown female” on 1 November. Asked whether he understood the charges, Jutting dressed in a casual black T-shirt with a “New York” logo replied: “I do.”

Jutting appeared on the sixth-floor courtroom at Hong Kong’s Eastern magistrates court, his first public appearance since his arrest in the early hours of Saturday
