Who is Colin Pitchfork ?

EVIL child killer Colin Pitchfork was called to jail tonight for violating the terms of his release.

The 61-year-old monster was arrested by police after “disturbing behavior”, including bad attitude, led to his arrest.

Pitchfork strangled, raped, and killed Lynda in November 1983 before raping and murdering Dawn nearly three years later.

The police officers took him to a police station for prosecution and he was returning to a closed prison just two months after his first trial of his release in 33 years.

Pitchfork is the subject of a standard withdrawal, which means that, in theory, he could be released again in 28 days.

But his record means that now he will almost certainly have to wait for a full Parole Board hearing in four to six months.

There, a panel will decide if he is eligible to be released.

But sources said it could now be years before he is released.

One told The Sun: “Pitchfork’s license conditions were so harsh that if he stepped out of line he would face retirement.

How old was Colin Pitchfork when he was sentenced?

Colin Pitchfork was sentenced to life in prison in 1988 with a minimum of 30 years after strangling two 15-year-olds, Lynda Mann and Dawn Ashworth, in Leicestershire in 1983 and 1986 respectively. At the time he committed his first crime, Pitchfork was a 22-year-old married father of two. He is now 60 years old.


“Now he has done just that. His behavior caused great concern and that was what motivated him.

“His attitude and his fears that he was hiding things were thought to be a problem as well.”

In September, we envisioned Pitchfork launching for the first time.

He had been expelled from the open prison at Leyhill, near Tortworth, Gloucestershire, under cover of darkness, to the hostel in southern England.

The beast was installed at the facility, presented to other residents, and displayed by staff.

He was warned that he would comply with the 43 conditions of his license, and he was told that he could be returned to jail if not.

Pitchfork’s release sparked anger among the families of his 15-year-old victims, Lynda Mann and Dawn Ashworth.

Lynda’s younger sister Rebecca Eastwood, 40, said: “It only took nine weeks for him to violate her conditions, which does not surprise me in the least.

“The first question I asked parole was ‘Has anyone been injured?’

“My biggest fear was that he had attacked again.

“They told me it’s related to his behavior, he’s been acting a little shady and they didn’t like it. They thought he was up to something.”

“I am absolutely convinced that he is back and no one has been hurt.

“It will be reevaluated now in 28 days. I just hope they see sense and don’t make the same mistake again.”

Rebecca, who now lives in Merseyside, added: “Predators like Pitchfork don’t change. I honestly think he will kill again. He is a monster that will never change.”

Dawn’s mother, Barbara Ashworth, 75, said tonight: “He shouldn’t have been released in the first place. Man is evil and he should never have tasted freedom.

“The streets are safer with him in jail, that’s how I feel.”

Barbara, from Liskeard, Cornwall, added: “He cannot be allowed to go out again.”

Pitchfork strangled, raped, and killed Lynda in November 1983 before raping and murdering Dawn nearly three years later.

Police asked 5,000 men to provide a DNA sample, but Pitchfork convinced a friend to give him one on his behalf.

He was finally arrested in 1987 after his friend was heard bragging about the scam.

And he became the first criminal convicted of murder based on DNA evidence at his trial and was imprisoned for 30 years.

Last week, Lynda’s sister, Rebecca Eastwood, issued a chilling warning to her parents.

She posted The Sun’s exclusive photo of Pitchfork on launch day in 2017 on Facebook, adding: “Remember his face and stay away from him and keep your kids safe.

“There is no way that a man who committed these crimes can change.”

Pitchfork turned 33 after parole boards rejected his offers for his release. But in March, a panel ruled that he was fit for freedom.

They imposed 43 conditions on him, including GPS tagging, mandatory lie detector tests and an exclusion zone around the families of his victims.

Attorney General Robert Buckland fought the decision but lost.
