Who are Colin Pitchfork's sons?

Not much is known about Pitchfork's children.

He was married with two sons – leaving one of them to sleep in the back of his car before he raped and murdered schoolgirl Lynda Mann in Narborough.

Afterwards, the killer drove home and put his baby to bed.

What have Colin Pitchfork's sons said about his crimes?

It does not appear that either of Pitchfork's sons have spoken about his crimes.

The relatives of his victims have spoken out, voicing their anger at the decision to set him free – saying he "deserves a bullet to the head".

The mother of Dawn Ashworth has said Pitchfork "will always present a danger".

And the sister of his first victim, Lynda Mann, said the only sentence Pitchfork should have received was “a bullet to the head”.

Sue Gratrick, who’s sister Lynda Mann, said the Parole Board’s decision was putting the family through hell.

Sue has since moved to a seaside town more than 100 miles away from the scene of her sister’s murder.

What did Colin Pitchfork do?

Sex-obsessed Colin Pitchfork was jailed for life in 1988 for the rape and murder of teenage schoolgirls Lynda Mann and Dawn Ashworth.

He raped and strangled Lynda, 15, in November 1983.

The teenager had left her home to visit a friend – but never returned.

Her body was found the next morning on a deserted footpath.

Three years later, Pitchfork, who worked as a baker, struck again – killing and raping Dawn, also 15, in almost identical circumstances.

Her body was found less than a mile from where Lynda had been attacked.

After Dawn’s killing, Leicestershire Police launched the largest manhunt in its history, asking more than 5,000 local men to volunteer blood or saliva samples in a bid to match samples taken from the crime scenes.
