Yorkshire Ripper's ashes were scattered by seaside in beautiful village, says serial killer's niece | The Sun

THE NIECE of the Yorkshire Ripper has said that her evil uncle's ashes were scattered in a beautiful seaside village.

Emily Sutcliffe has spoken about the serial killer, real name Peter Sutcliffe, for the first time, revealing where the beast's remains were left following his 2020 death from Covid aged 74.

She told The Mirror that some of his ashes were spread by the sea in the beautiful village of Arnside, Cumbria.

Emily, 28, said: "I was taken there once or twice when I was a child. It is lovely.

"That area means a lot to the whole family. We had family living in the area at the time and would visit them."

She then went on to discuss the impact her twisted relative had on her life, explaining: "When he died it felt a bit like freedom, a relief.

"When I looked in the mirror I saw a monster because I was convinced I looked like him. When I was younger I was told I looked like my dad who has similar features to my uncle.

"It was so bad I wanted plastic surgery to change everything about my appearance. If I’d had the money I would have."

The Ripper terrorised women in Yorkshire and Manchester in the 1970s and '80s.

He was convicted of murdering thirteen women and attempting to murder seven others between 1975 and 1980.

The crimes were usually carried out either by stabbing or by beating to death with a hammer.

Following his 1981 trial, he was handed 20 concurrent life sentences, which were converted into a whole life order in 2010.

Emily said that her dad, Peter's brother, told her about her notorious uncle when she was little.

She recalled: "I remember going into school and telling my friends because I thought my uncle was famous. I didn’t understand what he’d done then.

"Unfortunately it was the perfect age for bullying and it has scarred me.

"I felt like saying ‘I’m sorry, but it wasn’t me’.

"I was scared I was inherently bad and thought I must have evil coursing through my veins. It’s had a crazy impact on my self-esteem. I developed an eating disorder and was massively underweight from the stress of it."

Peter's ex-wife Sonia was made executor of his will and it is believed that his ashes were divided up and sent to family and friends.

A portion of them are thought to have been released at Arnside, where his father's ashes had been scattered in 2004.

The monster had even been allowed to visit the village in 2005 to pay his respects to his dad, sparking outrage.

The trip was conducted under strict supervision by staff from Broadmoor Hospital, but was branded "despicable" by the area's then-MP.
