‘The Ripper Speaks’, presented by investigator Mark Williams-Thomas, also debunks Ripper’s claim that he “heard a voice from God” that initiated his attacks.

Sutcliffe killed 13 women and attempted to kill seven more and admitted he planned to kill sex worker Olivia Reivers, 24, who he was with when he was finally arrested in January. 1981.

Asked if he was going to attack her, he said: “Of course I did, that’s the whole point. I don’t pick them up for any other reason”.

Sheffield police arrested Sutcliffe for being in a vehicle with a fake number plate.

They realized that he could be Yorkshire Ripper and found a hammer along with a knife he had left at the scene during his arrest.

The arrest terminated the truck driver from 1975 to 1980.

But in another confession, Sutcliffe admitted earlier assaulting schoolgirl Tracy Browne, 14, in August 1975 in Silsden, West Yorks.

It happened two months before he admitted his first murder, when he killed occasional street worker Wilma McCann, 28, in Leeds in October 1975.

Speaking hesitantly and misrepresenting her age, he said: “I saw this Tracy Browne; She doesn’t look 15, she looks 19 or 20.

“She dressed it all up. She is walking slowly down this road.

“I thought, ‘she’s probably one of those prostitutes’ because I thought in my head that Silsden must be full of prostitutes.

“I hit her with a branch or something, threw her over the wall and I climbed over the wall and was thinking about hitting her.”

He claims a voice inside him told him “stop, that was a mistake”.

“I said, ‘I’m sorry, you’ll be fine, I’ll take a break now,’ he said, but also callously said that Tracy was ‘not seriously injured’.

In fact, Tracy broke her skull in the attack and needed brain surgery to save her life.

Forensic examinations suggested it was possible the killer carried out the attack with a claw hammer, like the one used in later murders.

Tracy – attacked after a day out with her sister, who was ahead of her – survived and provided police with an accurate description of Sutcliffe.

But her case was not added to Ripper’s profile because she was not a prostitute, and West Yorkshire police mistakenly thought he was only targeting street workers.

On the show the journalist helped make, Sutcliffe also admitted to assaulting Marcella Claxton in Leeds in 1976, for which he was also not convicted.

She also provided an accurate description of him, who was looked down upon by the police because she was not a street worker.

During the show, a ‘Brenda’ source is heard asking him: “Did you attack Marcella Claxton, that black girl?”

He replied, “Yes, yes.”

Another shocking recording shows the serial killer talking about his fifth victim – 16-year-old shop assistant Jayne MacDonald, who was killed after a night out in Leeds.

The June 1977 murders – in which Jayne was attacked with a hammer, repeatedly stabbed and stabbed in the chest by a broken bottle – sparked a wave of public outcry.

She was not a sex worker and was amazingly described at the time as The Ripper’s first “innocent” victim.

In a recorded conversation, ‘Brenda’ asked Sutcliffe if he regretted the murder.

He replied, “Yes, I did, yes. She was in the wrong place and at the wrong time, sadly you know.

“I don’t believe she’s not a prostitute.”

He added: “What did she do at 1:30 a.m. in a prostitution ward. I don’t know how old she is, I don’t know if you do.

“I felt it afterwards (the guilt) when I convinced myself she wasn’t the prostitute you know.”

The show also features an interview with actor Bruce Jones, who played Les Battersby in Coronation Street.

He found the body of Ripper’s victim, Jean Jordan, on a wasteland in Manchester – after Sutcliffe moved from Yorkshire to evade police in October 1977.

And he said he had seen Sutcliffe, who had returned to Manchester after the murder in search of the £5 note left to her which he realized could be traced on the company’s payrolls. he.

He also mutilated and moved her body.

‘TO LOOK AT YOU IN THE EYES’

Bruce said: “I was looking at Jean and there was this face in the bushes – black hair, black beard and black eyes. I looked him straight in the eye.”

When Sutcliffe finally happened to be arrested in January 1981. He confessed to being the Ripper and admitted, “I was a monster.”

He confessed to the murders and assaults in gruesome detail after days of interrogation.

But during his Old Bailey trial, he claimed he heard “a voice from God” from a stele in a crematorium in Bingley, West Yorks, telling him to kill.

Although doctors said he suffered from schizophrenia, Judge Mr Justice Boreham refused to plead guilty to manslaughter and insisted on traces of murder before the jury.

It declared him “bad not crazy” and that Sutcliffe was sentenced to 20 life sentences and never released.

In the show’s tape, Sutcliffe moans that his judge is “biased” and calls him an “ignorant”.

The killer harbored hopes of release until his death and was heard on the show groaning about how long he had been held behind bars.

“I was a model prisoner you know,” he said. I start me 40order year on January 3rd – is that long enough for anyone? I will be a model citizen you know.

“They should have had a bit of compassion, such a long sentence – ridiculous indeed.”

Sutcliffe died alone at North Durham University Hospital and was gasping for air after contracting Covid-19.

The Ripper Speaks: The Lost Tapes – 10pm on February 8, Channel 5.
