Colin Pitchfork, a double child killer who was released just months before, has been sent back to prison.
According to the Ministry of Justice, COLIN PITCHFORK has been recalled to prison just two months after being released.
Following his release from prison after 33 years, he has been arrested once more.
Pitchfork was reportedly returned to custody on Friday, and his release will be decided by the Parole Board.
Pitchfork could be released into the world again in 28 days, according to the terms of his recall.
In 1988, he was sentenced to life in prison for rapping and murdering Lynda Mann and Dawn Ashworth, both 15 years old, in Leicestershire.
Pitchfork was the first murderer to be convicted based on DNA evidence.
Pitchfork will be released into society in June, according to the Parole Board.
“Protecting the public is our number one priority,” a Probation Service spokesperson said, “so when offenders breach the conditions of their release and potentially pose an increased risk, we don’t hesitate to return them to custody.”
According to sources, Pitchfork is likely to spend the rest of his life in prison as a result of this recall.
“Pitchfork’s license conditions were so strict that if he strayed from them, he faced recall,” a source told The Sun.
“And now he’s done it.”
“It was because of his behavior, which caused a lot of concern.”
“He kept going for long walks alone, which was concerning in and of itself.
“It’s also thought that his demeanor and fears that he was concealing something were a problem.”
According to the Ministry of Justice, one of Pitchfork’s conditions of release was that he would be supervised for the rest of his life.
In November 1983, he strangled, raped, and murdered Lynda before rapping and murdering Dawn almost three years later.
In January 1988, he was sentenced to life in prison for the murders after pleading guilty.
A number of MPs and relatives of the young victims were outraged by his release.
The government then filed a formal challenge to the Parole Board’s decision, claiming it was “irrational” to release Pitchfork back into society.
After being denied freedom in 2016 and 2018, a subsequent review concluded that Pitchfork could be released.
“Our heartfelt sympathies remain with Lynda Mann and Dawn Ashworth’s families following the independent Parole Board’s decision to release Colin Pitchfork,” a Ministry of Justice spokesperson said.
Pitchfork was 22 years old, married, and had two children when he died at the age of 61.
