It is about to be 47 years since the day peter sutcliffe He murdered his first victim... the first of many: thirteen women, most of them prostitutes, who they died in the clutches of the Yorkshire Ripper.

The murderer, working years ago as an undertaker in the cemetery of bingleyHe had heard some voices in his head that pushed him to go out on the streets to kill prostitutes. He considered it a divine message to cleanse the country of scum.

After a cumbersome and uncertain police investigation, the so-called “ripper of Yorkshire” was arrested on January 2, 1981, when he was about to take the life of another prostitute.

THE PROFILE

If we delve into the biography of this serial killer, we find that He was the eldest of six siblings, a shy boy, with problems integrating with other kids his age, very attached to his mother and yet his victims were always women.

To know the explanation to all this, In La Noche de Adolfo Arjona we have asked César Alcalá, author of the book “Psychiatric profiles of murderous men” published by editorial Sekotia. ‘There are many of these serial killers who are very attached to their mother’ assures César Alcalá; ‘they idealize the mother, but they do not idealize their victims, the victims for them are an extension of their perversions, of their murderous and macabre thoughts and this is an obvious case that the love for the mother was not evident in love to women’.
