World's End killer Angus Sinclair has been urged to confess to a string of unsolved murders after it was revealed he only has months to live.

The "skeletal" serial murderer , who has been convicted of killing four girls, will be "lucky to last the year" after a series of strokes.
Frail Sinclair, 72, spends his time in bed or a prison wheelchair and struggles to eat a restricted diet, the Daily Record reports.
Prison sources say his condition has deteriorated rapidly and he is showing no signs of recovering.
The detective who nailed Sinclair has urged the serial killer to confess to other murders.
Retired Joe Jackson said: “If he has any humanity, he’ll confess to the terrible things he’s done.”
An insider described the 72-year-old as “skeletal” and said his only nutrition is liquids taken through a baby cup.
Sinclair is one of the country’s longest-serving prisoners, having been in jail continually since 1982.
He is serving life sentences for the murders of teenagers Helen Scott and Christine Eadie in Edinburgh and Mary Gallacher in Glasgow.
And he was previously behind bars for killing eight-year-old Catherine Reehill in Glasgow.
But he is also suspected of murdering Frances Barker, 37, Hilda McAuley, 36, Agnes Cooney, 23, and Anna Kenny, 20, all in Glasgow.
Retired Detective Superintendent Jackson has told the predator to open up about his involvement in the cases before he dies.
The 77-year-old revealed Sinclair almost confessed to a number of sexual assaults before clamming up while being quizzed at Gorbals Police Office in Glasgow.
Sinclair told officers: “I’ve done so many, I can’t remember them all. I could’ve done 50, I just don’t know.
“If you can find out where and when, I’ll tell you whether I did them or not."
Jackson said yesterday: “He should do the decent thing and confess before he dies and bring some peace to the families of his victims.
“This man told me he had committed any number of crimes and would tell me about them if I asked.
There are other unsolved crimes out there which he has been linked to and now’s the time for him to talk.
He committed his first murder at 16 and it’s difficult to believe he didn’t go on to commit more than he’s been convicted of.
“This could be the last chance for him to do the right thing.”
Jackson, who retired 25 years ago, is a former head of Strathclyde Serious Crime Squad and Govan CID in Glasgow.
He arrested Sinclair for the rape of 11 girls, aged six to 14, for which he got a life sentence.
Jackson told senior officers Sinclair was a serious danger to all females and urged them to quiz him about other similar unsolved crimes. However, his advice was ignored.
The former police chief added: “I think he realised he made a mistake in opening up to me at the time and hasn’t repeated it.
“But if he has any humanity, he’ll confess to the terrible things he’s done.”
Sinclair has suffered a series of strokes since 2014 and is under constant medical attention in Glenochil prison, Clackmannanshire.
A source at the jail said: “Sinclair is now deteriorating rapidly.
“He eats only wet food, drinks from a plastic cup like a baby’s bottle and is spoon-fed his meds.
“It would be a tragic thing to see if it was someone other than him.
“Nurses visit three times daily and he’ll be lucky to see the end of the year.”
Sinclair raped and strangled Helen and Christine, both 17, after a night out at the World’s End pub in 1977.
In November 2014, the case saw him become the first person in Scotland to be re-tried for the same crime after a previous acquittal.
Sinclair was sentenced to a minimum 37 years in jail. It’s the longest term in Scottish legal history – and the same number of years the girls’ families waited to get justice.
It means he’ll not become eligible for parole until he is 106.
Sinclair challenged the sentence but his appeal was rejected last year.
Our prison source added: “Sinclair is now skin and bones. He can’t walk from his bed to the toilet unaided.
“He used to have a walking frame but now has a wheelchair.
“He knows when he’s being spoken to, and it’s believed he knows what’s being asked of him, but that’s about it – he’s incapable of doing most things.
“Sinclair has an alarm on his wrist which he can activate if he falls over or wants assistance.
“People do not relish having to attend to him but they have a duty of care. He still has an evil look in his eyes.”
The serial killer’s convictions, which also include theft, rape and culpable homicide, date back to 1959. In 1961, aged 16, he admitted sexually assaulting and strangling his young neighbour Catherine.
He was sentenced to 10 years in prison for culpable homicide.
A psychiatrist’s report warned Sinclair would remain a “very dangerous sexual case”. But he served just six years before being set free to murder again.
In 1978, Sinclair strangled 17-year-old Mary. He wasn’t convicted of her murder until 2001, when a cold-case review found DNA evidence linking him to her body.
In 2009, an FBI expert said he feared Sinclair had killed at least eight women.
Sinclair also emerged last year as a suspect in the 1977 murder of Frances.
Thomas Ross Young was jailed for the crime but always protested his innocence. He died in 2014 while waiting to hear if his case could be appealed.
Former detectives now believe Sinclair was behind the murder.
Last night, Christine’s brother Hamilton, 48, welcomed news of Sinclair’s health problems.
He said: “No one will miss him when he dies.
“Our family have had closure for Christine and Helen. If he could confess, it would give closure to the other families.”
The Scottish Prison Service said they were unable to comment on individual cases.

  • A former chef already serving a life sentence for the brutal rape and murder of Sally Anne Bowman has admitted attacks on two other women.
    Mark Dixie, 46, was jailed for 34 years in 2008 for repeatedly stabbing teenage model Miss Bowman before raping her as she lay dead or dying in Croydon, south London, in September 2005.
    He denied killing the 18-year-old at the time of his trial, but has now confessed to both her murder and previous assaults.
    On Wednesday, the killer pleaded guilty at Southwark Crown Court, south London, to raping another woman 13 years before Miss Bowman's death, as well as attacking a further victim in 2002.
    Appearing via videolink from HMP Frankland in County Durham, the former pub worker confessed to ambushing a woman in an isolated car park in 1987.
    A previous hearing was told how, after raping her, Dixie had tied the woman to her car and set fire to it, but she managed to escape.
    The sex attacker admitted charges of indecent assault and Grievous Bodily Harm (GBH) after he hit the second woman over the head with a chef's steel - used to sharpen knives - before molesting her on a flight of stairs in 2002.
    Prosecutor Crispin Aylett QC told the court how Dixie admitted Miss Bowman's murder to police in January 2015, nearly 10 years after her death.
    "He wrote to to police indicating he wanted to tell them the truth of what had happened to Sally Anne, because at the trial he said that he was not responsible for her murder," Mr Aylett said.
    "He also admitted two other serious attacks on women that had taken place some time before."
    Dixie appeared calm as he admitted his crimes, wearing a sports top and glasses.
    Miss Bowman, who was also a singer, attended the BRIT School, subsequently made famous by stars such as Adele and Amy Winehouse, and had been compared to Kate Moss in her fledgling modelling career.

    Former pub chef appears in court over horrific sex attacks dating back 30 years Amie Gordon For Mailonline

    On Friday afternoon, Dallas police identified the suspect in the assaults as Sean Padilla. 

    Padilla, according to DPD Deputy Chief Thomas Castro, confessed to five sexual assaults after his arrest. In addition to the two assaults to which he was originally connected, Padilla admitted to an April 4 rape in Dallas, a May 2 rape in Dallas and a May 30 rape on South Jupiter Road in Garland. DPD has charged Padilla with five counts of aggravated sexual assault, Castro said. Padilla's bail is set at $100,000.
    Harbinder Singh Khatkar raped and sexually assaulted six women in one night in Derby in February 2013 - three in the street and three in their homes.
    He tried to challenge his convictions at the Court of Appeal.
    But judges rejected his case as "totally without merit" and said the appeal "should never have been made".
    His appeal attempt included a series of allegations against his trial judge, the police and even his own lawyers.
    Lord Justice Irwin, sitting with Sir Wyn Williams and Judge Mark Brown, said: "There is no basis whatever for the claim of bias on the part of the trial judge, for the criticism that the jury should have been discharged, for the criticism in relation to his former legal representatives or for the allegation of police interference or suppression of evidence."
    As a punishment for wasting judicial time, the judges ordered Khatkar to serve an extra month in prison before he can seek parole.

    'Vulnerable woman'

    The 41-year-old, from Sinfin in Derby, is serving a life sentence with a minimum term of 14 years.
    Judge John Burgess, who originally sentenced Khatkar in 2013 at Derby Crown Court, said at the time: "In the course of his trial he behaved in a way that demonstrated contempt for the court, the prosecutor, and anyone else that got in his way.
    "If he can behave like that in court with everyone watching him, what must he be like with a vulnerable woman alone in her own home?"
    In December 2012, Khatkar had been tried for raping and sexually assaulting a woman in 2011 - but the jury found him not guilty.
    He then attacked the six women on 1 February 2013.
    One of those victims was repeatedly raped in her home over several hours and he also threatened to kill her children.
    Following his arrest for those offences, the Crown Prosecution Service successfully overturned his previous not guilty verdict and he was retried for the 2011 crimes.
    His was the first retrial in Derbyshire under the amended double jeopardy law, which came into effect in 2005.

    Time-wasting rapist given extra jail time 21 July 2017

    An accused serial sex offender, whose 2011 conviction for a 9th Ward rape was struck down by appellate judges in April, could wind up serving life in prison for his legal victory after he was indicted by an Orleans Parish grand jury on a more severe charge in the same case. Conversely, he also could still wind up walking free.
    Orleans Parish prosecutors filed a superseding indictment charging Troy Taylor, 41, with aggravated rape and aggravated kidnapping in connection with a case that originated in 1994. The new rape charge is punishable with a mandatory life sentence upon conviction. It marks a potentially bleaker prospect for Taylor, who has served six years of the maximum 40-year sentence he was handed after being convicted of a lesser forcible rape in August 2011.
    Taylor managed to get his conviction and sentence overturned on timeliness grounds by the Louisiana 4th Circuit Court of Appeal on April 6. He contended that his original trial attorney was ineffective because he had not made a motion to quash the forcible rape charge as untimely. The alleged rape occurred early on Aug. 30, 1994, but Taylor was not identified as the rapist until late 2008. That's when his DNA sample taken after a Texas drug arrest was found to match one collected from the 1994 victim in a rape kit that sat untested for years inside an NOPD storage facility.
    The statute of limitations for forcible rape expires after six years. Another state law enacted in 2003 gives authorities a new three-year window to prosecute cases when DNA results have revealed a suspect years after an offense. But six years already had elapsed after this alleged rape before that law was in effect, and Taylor argued in appellate court that made his prosecution unjust.
    In late April, District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro's office urgently appealed to the Louisiana Supreme Court to reinstate Taylor's conviction.
    "Taylor is a threat to the safety of the community," assistant district attorney Donald Cassels wrote in his motion to the high court. "With respect to the underlying forcible rape, Taylor's guilt is conclusively established -- his conviction having been obtained in large part on the strength of recently obtained DNA evidence. In addition, the evidence adduced at Taylor's 2011 trial demonstrates that since that rape, Taylor has engaged in at least two additional acts of sexually assaultive behavior."
    Jurors at Taylor's trial learned of another incident in 2006 during which the defendant sexually assaulted another woman under similar circumstances, as well as a 2004 incident when Taylor exposed himself to a gas station employee.

    New indictment raises stakes for accused 9th Ward serial rapist whose conviction was tossed July 21, 2017 Ken Daley

    SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – A Big Bear City man has been convicted of posing as a police officer, threatening three women with a handgun and sexually assaulting them.
    A jury found 53-year-old William Hernandez guilty today of four counts of Forcible Oral Copulation, four counts of Forcible Rape, two counts of False Imprisonment by Violence, and one count of Sodomy by Use of Force. Multiple allegations were found true.
    The first incident occurred in Feb. 2016, when Hernandez identified himself as a police officer to a woman who he then threatened with a handgun and sexually assaulted in a Rancho Cucamonga motel.
    The second assault occurred in Victorville. Hernandez once again identified himself as a police office to another victim and then threatened her with a handgun and sexually assaulted her.
    Afterwards, the second victim’s friend called her and she answered the phone. Hernandez pointed a gun at her and demanded that she tell her friend to come over. Once she arrived, Hernandez threatened her with a gun and sexually assaulted her.
    Hernandez faces 188 years to life in prison when sentenced Aug. 22.
    This case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Lisa Crane and the West Valley Division support staff. Rancho Cucamonga Police Department and Victorville City Police Department were the investigating agencies.

    serial rapist who brutally attacked four women cynically used his own brother's army record to win mercy from a court.
    James Gellately posed as an Army hero who had served his country with distinction in Northern Ireland and the first Gulf War.
    He claimed the post traumatic stress he suffered as a result had tormented him, causing him to commit his crimes.
    Gellately used the tale when he was convicted of breach of the peace for swallowing a razor blade in Saughton jail, and his lawyer also claimed at his original trial that he suffered from PTSD.
    But the sex beast, caged for 10 years in 2015 for the rapes, spun his yarn knowing full well it was a tissue of lies.
    Gellately had cynically stolen the war record of his soldier brother Alan, a former Para, and tried to use it to his own advantage.
    Gellately was jailed in 2015 after a jury at the High Court in Edinburgh heard of the shocking catalogue of abuse he inflicted on women.
    Gellately, originally from Dumfries, attacked his victims between 2006 and 2013 in Dumfriesshire, East Kilbride and Kilmarnock.
    He denied all the charges but was found guilty of four rape charges, an indecent assault and three assaults.
    Gellately forced one woman’s head into a bath of water and held her under the surface.
    He pinned her down, grabbed her by the throat and repeatedly punched and bit her on the body. He used pliers to remove jewellery from her body, cut her hair off and sexually assaulted her.
    Gellately also brandished a screwdriver at the woman and threatened to kill her.
    The hulking thug raped his second victim in 2009 at a house in East Kilbride.
    Gellately also viciously assaulted her, kicking her in the head, pinning her down, seizing her by the throat and cutting her hair.
    He took a phone from the victim to stop her calling for help and made her take an overdose of medication.
    Gellately raped and physically attacked his third at a house in Kilmarnock.
    Then he raped a fourth woman in August 2013 on a roadside south of Sanquhar, Dumfriesshire, and raped the same victim repeatedly later that month at a house in Kilmarnock.
    Judge John Morris QC sentenced Gellately to 10 years and branded him “a real and present danger to the public” – especially women.
    He ordered that Gellately, only 27 at the time, be kept under close supervision for five years after his release from jail.
    The judge noted that Gellately had “a deplorable criminal record” for a man of his age.

    A Barnstable Superior Court Judge on Friday denied a motion by serial rapist David Matterson to hold separate trials for each of the home-invasion sexual assaults he is accused of committing.
    Matterson, a Jamaican native who has lived on the island off and on for about a decade, pleaded not guilty in Nantucket Superior Court in January 2016 to six counts of aggravated rape during the commission of a felony, four counts of kidnapping, four counts of assault and battery, four counts of indecent assault and battery on a person over 14, three counts of home invasion, three counts of breaking and entering in the nighttime to commit a felony, three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, one count of assault with a dangerous weapon and one count of assault with intent to rape.
    In each attack, Matterson entered the homes of women he did not know armed with a knife, tied the women up and sexually assaulted them, according to prosecutors. The first three incidents resulted in rape charges, but in the fourth attack, the woman fought him off, prosecutors said.
    After seven years of investigation, DNA found at some of the crime scenes was matched to a soup container Matterson threw away at an island restaurant, police said. He was arrested Oct. 20, 2015 at his job site on Cliff Road.

    MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — A suspected serial rapist who remains on the loose after attacking 13 women in two Kansas college towns has been tied to another case, authorities announced Thursday.
    Police in Riley County and Lawrence said during a joint news conference that the 14th case is a July 2015 attempted rape in Manhattan. The man also is suspected in 12 other rapes and one other attempted rape from 2000 to 2008, The Kansas City Star ( ) reported.
    Authorities are urging other women who may have been victimized to come forward. Police say all but one of the attacks occurred during school breaks at Kansas State and the University of Kansas.
    The Kansas attorney general's office announced in 2009 that it was investigating the link between the attacks after the two communities sought help.
    "We are here today because we need the public's help," said Anthony Brixius, the interim police chief in Lawrence.
    Officials also announced Thursday that they'd created a website asking for the public's help. The site allows people to read information about the crimes and to provide tips and assistance to help solve the case. An anonymous donor has provided a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the rapist.
    Investigators said they are working several leads but are not in a position to discuss that information. They have not released a name of a suspect.
    The suspect is now described as a white male, about 5 feet 10 inches tall with a prominent stomach and large thighs. He is believed to be in his 30s.
    Authorities have said the rapist sees a woman and then learns her routine. In each case, authorities said, the man wore a mask, and in many cases he had a gun.
    Investigators have not disclosed whether they have recovered any DNA evidence.
