13, 2020, Britain's Prison Service said that serial killer Peter Sutcliffe _ known as the "Yorkshire Ripper" died in the hospital.

The serial killer's murder spree across Yorkshire and Manchester from 1975 to 1980 terrified northern England and led to a huge manhunt, but blunders in the police inquiry delayed his capture.

In May 1981, he was jailed for 20 life terms at the Old Bailey, the judge recommended a minimum sentence of 30 years.More than two decades later, a secret report revealed that Sutcliffe probably committed more crimes than the 13 murders and seven attempted murders for which he was convicted.

According to a report by the Sun, Sutcliffe was taken to University Hospital of North Durham, but once there refused treatment.

The attacker is dubbed the Yorkshire Ripper by the press, and West Yorkshire Chief Constable Ronald Gregory appoints his most senior detective, Assistant Chief Constable George Oldfield, to investigate the murders.

Mr Robins said: "Such language and attitudes may have reflected wider societal attitudes of the day, but it was as wrong then as it is now".

Richard McCann had earlier appealed to West Yorkshire Police to make a formal apology for the way in which his mother and other victims of Sutcliffe were described by officers in the 1970s.

Richardson, from Chapeltown, Leeds, used a knife to mutilate her.

Richard McCann, whose mother Wilma was Sutcliffe's first victim in October 1975, told Sky News he had "ruined so many lives".

Sutcliffe was the newly-married former grave digger whose brutal reign of terror instilled unshakeable worry in the North of England as police failed to pick up the clues in their pursuit of the notorious murderer known as the Yorkshire Ripper.

The 22-year-old was attacked and murdered by Sutcliffe in Bradford, where she lived, some time between 20 January and 26 March 1978.

Two months later he struck for the first time in his hometown, Bradford, killing 32-year-old Patricia Atkinson. Killed on April 24, 1977.

Jean Jordan, 20, was murdered in October 1977.

Peter William Sutcliffe was born on June 2 1946 in Bingley, West Yorkshire.

Helen Rytka, 18, from Huddersfield.

Sutcliffe avoided detection for years due to a series of missed opportunities by police to snare him, and eventually confessed in 1981 when he was brought in due to a police check discovering stolen number plates on his auto.

Vera Millward, 40, a mother-of-seven from Manchester, who was killed on May 16, 1978.

Building society clerk Whitaker was murdered in Savile Park, Halifax, on 4 April 1979 in a method that was clearly the Yorkshire Ripper's.

1 June 2006: A report which has been kept secret for almost 25 years reveals that Sutcliffe probably committed more crimes than the 13 murders and seven attempted murders for which he was convicted.

During Sutcliffe's confession to police in 1981, which was followed by his decision to contest the charges, he claimed he was on a mission from God to kill prostitutes.
