Two-time child killer and rapist Colin Pitchfork is again being considered for release after being recalled to prison for “worrisome conduct”.
The monster61, was arrested by police officers in November after “worrying behavior” – including a bad attitude – led to his arrest.
Police officers took him to a police station for processing just two months after his first taste of freedom 33 years.
His record meant he had to wait until a full parole board decided if he was eligible for parole.
The Parole Board has now confirmed that a hearing is expected to take place in the autumn.
Pitchford could be denied his releaseor he could be released or transferred from a closed prison to an open prison.
South Leicestershire MP Alberto Costa, who campaigned against Pitchfork’s release, said: “As my constituents will know, I have long had and will have very serious concerns about the threat to public safety that Pitchfork continues to pose as always continue to do everything I can to oppose his release.
“Given Pitchfork’s recall to prison just weeks after his release last November, it’s pretty clear he still poses a very real risk to my constituents and the public at large.”
The MP spoke to the Parole Board chief executive – who confirmed the oral hearing on Pitchfork’s future would be held in the autumn.
He added, “It has also been confirmed to me that Pitchfork is very likely currently living in a closed prison and that he will likely remain there until his parole hearing is held.”
The parole board’s release rate is one in four.
In September last year we pictured pitchfork at release for the first time.
He had been driven from Leyhill Open Prison, near Tortworth, Gloucestershire, under cover of darkness to the hostel in southern England.
The animal was housed at the facility, introduced to other residents and shown around by staff.
He was warned to stick to his 43 license terms – and told he could face jail time otherwise.
Pitchfork’s release last year sparked anger among the relatives of his 15-year-old victims, Lynda Mann and Co Dawn Ashworth.
Lynda’s younger sister Rebecca Eastwood, 40, said: “It was only nine weeks before he broke his terms – which doesn’t surprise me in the slightest.
“The first question I asked on parole was, ‘Was anyone hurt?’
“My biggest fear was that he would strike again.
“They told me it was related to his behavior – he was acting a bit dodgy and they didn’t like it. They thought he was up to something.
“I’m absolutely confident that he’s back inside and no one was hurt.
“He will now be re-evaluated within 28 days. I just hope they see purpose and don’t make the same mistake again.”
Pitchfork strangled, raped, and killed Lynda in November 1983 before raping and murdering Dawn almost three years later.
Cops asked 5,000 men to provide a DNA sample, but Pitchfork persuaded a pal to provide one on his behalf.
He was eventually arrested in 1987 after the friend was overheard bragging about the scam.
And he became the first criminal ever convicted of murder based on DNA evidence at his trial, and was jailed for 30 years.
