Stephen Griffiths Gets Himself Back On The News Agenda With ‘Superficial’ Suicide Bid

by | 11th, September 2010

STEPHEN Griffiths news now as the man dubbed the “Crossbow Cannibal” has slashed his throat in jail. Was this a genuine suicide attempt of another cry for attention?

Back in June, the story went that Griffiths was found on his cell floor with a sock tied about his neck. That was billed as a suicide attempt.

Now the police say the prisoner at HMP Wakefield in West Yorkshire was treated for “superficial wounds”.

Says the Mail:

A prison source said: ‘There was blood everywhere. It was a real mess. It was definitely an effort to kill himself.’

The Sun tells:

“In the early hours of this morning he suddenly got out of his bed and started smashing things up, including his TV set. He then slashed his throat with a piece of glass from the broken TV screen. Officers reacted in an extremely courageous and dynamic manner…”

And so the man charged with murdering Bradford sex workers Suzanne Blamires, Shelley Armitage and Susan Rushworth is back on the news cycle…
