This auction is for a Christmas card from United Kingdom serial killer Mr. Peter William Sutcliffe, also known as "The Yorkshire Ripper." From 1975 to 1980 Sutcliffe murdered 13 women and attempted to murder seven others. His used a knife or hammer to kill his victims, hence the moniker given to him by the press. He was arrested on 1/2/1981 and subsequently confessed, citing he was on a mission from God to kill prostitutes, although not all of Sutcliffe's victims were. He would be sentenced to multiple life terms. After his conviction he opted to change his name to Peter William Coonan, Coonan being his mother's maiden name. During his incarceration Sutcliffe has bounced back and forth between psychiatric facilities and prison. In 2011, after a failed appeal motion, it was decided that Sutcliffe should never be released from custody. Currently in his 70's Sutcliffe has lost most of his vision and to the best of my knowledge is no longer writing to pen friends, which were few and far between at best.
ITEM DESCRIPTION: The Christmas card is dated, "For Xmas 2013," with a handwritten inscription, signed, "Peter C." There are two Christmas ornament stickers affixed to the inside of the card. The original mailing envelope is postmarked 12/4/2013 with five lines of address written in Sutcliffe's hand. There is no return address for Sutcliffe written on the envelope. The card and envelope come inside a protective magazine sleeve with an acid free board and have been stored flat. Message me with any questions you might have. Thanks for having a look-see.
