A new Netflix documentary about the Yorkshire Ripper, Peter Sutcliffe, is reportedly in the works. Daily Mirror are reporting that relatives of the murderers victims, as well as survivors, have been interviewed by producers. They are also speaking to victims of crimes that have never been solved but have long been thought to have been carried out by Sutcliffe. It is thought that the documentary, possibly a series, will concentrate on the victims and the lasting effects rather than being directly about Sutcliffe himself.
Sutcliffe, an ex-lorry driver used hammers, knives and screwdrivers to murder 13 women and attempted to kill seven more between 1975 to 1980. He is now aged 72 and has been behind bars since his trial in 1981. An appeal in 2010 resulted in a confirmation that he would stay behind bars until his death.
