Child killer Colin Pitchfork who raped and murdered two schoolgirls in the 1980s is FREED from jail after Parole Board rejected appeal against his release
Colin Pitchfork, who raped and murdered two schoolgirls in the 1980s, has been released from prison.
The notorious murderer was freed after the Parole Board rejected the Government’s legal challenge to his release.
But in a clear indication of the threat he still poses, Pitchfork, 61, will be subject to some of the strictest licence conditions ever set.
For example, he will wear an electronic tag so he can be monitored at all times, banned from going near the relatives of his victims and face restrictions on using the internet by himself.
Pitchfork, jailed for life in 1988 for the rape and murder of two 15-year-old girls, will also be placed on the sex offenders register when he is freed from Leyhill prison in Gloucestershire.
