True Crime Doco About Yorkshire Ripper Coming To Netflix

There’s something oddly addictive about true crime documentaries at the moment and we sure aren’t short of them.

From The Ted Bundy Tapes to Making A Murderer and even The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann, we could binge watch literally hours upon hours of these docos.

And now it seems like we’ll have a new one to add to the list!

A brand new series is set to be realised on Netflix about the horrific crimes of notorious serial killer, the Yorkshire Ripper.

The Yorkshire ripper, who’s real name is Peter Sutcliffe, is believed to have killed upwards of 13 women.

The documentary will explore his crimes through the eyes of the victims families and surviving victims and will reportedly follow the same format as the Madeleine MCCann documentary.

“This will be a huge programme for Netflix and is likely to follow the same format as the Madeleine programme,” said a source to Mirror.

“It will focus on victims and the terrible impact of his attacks. It will also examine the dreadful police blunders around the case. Crucially, it will try to throw up fresh clues about crimes Sutcliffe has never been convicted of.”

Sutcliffe was convicted of 13 murders and 7 attempted murders and is currently being held for 20 concurrent life sentences in Franklin high security prison in Durham.

He was arrested in 1981 after committing vile crimes between the years 1975 and 1981.

He would reportedly attack his victims, most of which were prostitutes, before beating them to death and mutilating their bodies.

There is currently no release date for the documentary but it will no doubt go gangbusters when it comes out just like all the other true crime series have done!
