COUNTY DURHAM, ENGLAND — Peter Sutcliffe, 71, was taken to the prison infirmary at HMP Frankland in County Durham after he reported feeling breathless and suffering from chest pains.
The serial killer, who murdered 13 women and tried to kill seven others, has been battling bad health, including problems with his eyesight, for a number of years.
The Sun reports that he told prison bosses that the next Christmas will be his last.
A source told the newspaper: “He was short of breath and then started having chest pains, so the staff took him to the infirmary. They didn’t mess about.”
Sutcliffe has been incarcerated at Broadmoor since being convicted of the murders of Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman in 1981, but was transferred to HMP Frankland last August. Frankland is nicknamed “Monster Mansion” as it is where the most dangerous criminals are housed.
