"Stephen Griffiths, 40, who is studying at the University of Bradford, was arrested on suspicion of the murders of missing sex workers Suzanne Blamires, Shelley Armitage and Susan Rushworth."

It appears this guy was a true crime aficionado. Apparently he went by the name Ven Pariah, online. Check out his Amazon wish list:

404 - Document Not Found

One of the movies on his wish list is Ravenous which is about cannibalism. It wouldn't surprise me if some evidence of cannibalism were to be found relating to these murders.

This is curious -- this guy sounds like he's straight out of central casting for serial killer......

Police quizzing ‘serial killer’ find crossbow murder footage (http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/crime/article7137846.ece)

A university student suspected of murdering three Bradford prostitutes was arrested after detectives obtained extraordinary CCTV footage of the moment when a killer fired a crossbow bolt into a woman's head.

The film, obtained from the block of flats that was home to Stephen Griffiths, 40, shows Suzanne Blamires being chased down a corridor by a man who then attacked and knocked her to the ground

Body of suspected Bradford serial killer's victim indentified as missing prostitute (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/crime/7771034/Body-of-suspected-Bradford-serial-killers-victim-indentified-as-missing-prostitute.html)

Stephen Griffiths, a mature student in criminal justice at Bradford University, is being questioned by police over the killing of Suzanne Blamires, 36, and two other prostitutes who worked in Bradford’s red light district and went missing over the past year.

On his Myspace page he operated under the pseudonym Ven Pariah, listing his mood as 'evil' and describing himself as the "misanthrope who brought hate into heaven".

Stephen Griffiths, 40, was charged with the murders of Suzanne Blamires, Shelley Armitage and Susan Rushworth.

The remains of Ms Blamires, 36, were found in the River Aire at Shipley on Tuesday. She disappeared from Bradford last week.

Oh man that's horrific. These are someone's sisters, daughters, probably mothers even.

My prayers to these poor women's families. Especially Ms. Blamires.

It's like the guy took snippets from The Serial Killer Encyclopedia.

In all honesty I have a vast amount of books on serial killers. I think alot of us do on this site. However, we're not going to hurt a fly.I doubt at the age of 40 I'd become a criminology student, but hey still doesn't mean we'd hurt somebody. He's bonkers. A nutter who preyed on women that he figured nobody would miss.




Here's a photograph of these beautiful women murdered so senselessly.
Left to right are Shelly Armitage, Susan Blamires, and Susan Rushworth. RIP dear ladies.

Crossbow Cannibal. That's what the guy told the courts his name was today.

He walked lizards on leashes and he once ate a live baby rat in front of his friend.

An online dating service has issued a statement saying indeed he was at one time with their service and had contact with only one person. Another person he contacted didn't respond. Good lookout there.

An interview with a prostitute from his neighborhood said he always hung around them. She said she can pinpoint him hanging around way back since 2000 at least. Not good. He didn't want sex and told them he was gay. He also had a heafty education despite his family not being wealthy.

Then of course at link goes on about his mother. It's always about the mother, right?

May these poor souls rest in peace that this guy took the lives of. Officials believe it's going to be way more.

Seems his mom made the news herself back in 2007. Her maiden name was mentioned in an article and I found this was in the papers. She was facing jail time. She'd been beating I guess it's Britains welfare system for housing.

Her attorney said she suffered from depression.

he told them his name was the crossbow cannibal *giggle snort* I wonder how he got that out with a straight face.

as a daily reader of WS obviously I have a great interest in crime and forensics and all that. when this first hit the news here a few days ago my husband and I had a lively conversation on what led LE to question this man in particular. was it an eyewitness? was it CCTV footage (I've read since it was most likely the CCTV footage) was it his interest in serial killers?

I had a bit of a sick feeling hearing he was taking courses criminology and had a great interest in serial killers, as I always do when I hear about things like this since I share these interests ..... I dont want anything in common with them ...ugh.

.......and his mom is now missing. Police are asking for Moira Griffiths to contact them as it's important they talk to her.

LE went to her place, but found her not home. They chose not to enter, but left a note. Neighbors said the woman had already been away when news broke about her son.

So, yeah it would be a good idea for this lady to speak to LE. Also her ex-husband scoffed at the notion people are having that she was a prostitute.

O.K. and he had a girlfriend. Yes he did. Well until she went to his apartment.

Zeta Pinder met Griffiths through a "lonely hearts club" add. She described him as odd, but very sweet.:eek: They dated for two years and he had pretended to live with his parents. One day he let it slip he had his own place and being like every other chick on the planet who has a boyfriend lie for two years she wanted to see it.:waitasec:

Pinder the mother of two met him in 1998. Once inside the paprtment she realized this guy was well not O.K. She said his apaprtment was lined with so many books about murderers and gore movies she wanted O-U-T! He also had samauri swords in there. She feigned illness and he took her home. Pheeeeew! The next day she called him and said it was over.

Pinder was surprised he took it so well and never bothered her again.

Meanwhile he is terrified of insects and slept with cotton in his ears so nothing could crawl in his ears. Also he flipped out once when she stroked his hair.:eek:

**O.K. immediately they should let a ton of cockroaches out in his cell and ensure he can't clog his ears with anything. Then keep touching his hair.** I am so serious.

Griffiths mother has been located and spoke to LE as well as press.

She's shocked. Yeah well I guess so lady. Then again she did not commit these crimes.

She said she has lost touch with her son when she moved yet again to Dewesbury. Hmmmmmmmm, so you neither bothered to find eachother?:waitasec:

She's been using her neighbors flat to enter and leave her small one bedroom flat so as to avoid press. That and probably some really pizzzzed people.;)

When asked if she will support her son through trial she said she wasn't sure. She has to give it some time. I guess so.

You so can not make this stuff up.

Griffith's neighbor who lived in the flat just above him was also a murderer.:eek:

Kenneth Valentine murdered Caroline Creery aged 25 back in 1996. As horrific as that is it's even worse because he was convicted of manslaughter in the murder of Janet Willoughby back in 1991. He got seven years. He served five. Got out and murdered another young woman.

WTH?:furious:

Former neighbours in Wakefield have told how after Mrs Griffiths separated from her frozen food salesman husband Stephen, she brought her three children up on her own.

Despite never having a job, she never appeared short of money and would often go out at night dressed in “sexy clothing”, it was claimed.

Yep. (Nods head sagely.) I think they're onto something.

Tragic Shelley was 'a lovely woman'

Floral tributes to the victims continue to be laid at the place where the man accused of murdering three women lived.

Fresh flowers lined the wall of the building in Thornton Road after police confirmed they had evidence of Shelley Armitage’s remains on Wednesday.

One woman stopped yesterday afternoon to leave a bunch of orange roses.

She said she had not known the women but she felt moved to show her sympathy because “it could have been anyone”.

Looks like this creeper wasn't as much a loner as first thought. Two more women have come forward who dated him for some time. He freaked both of them out. Obviously.

Kathy Hancock recounts how he busted her nose, didn't allow her to leave the house alone, and when she finally made her escape returned home to find her house smathered in yellow paint with the word "Slag" painted on it.

Hancock had a court order against nutter and once it rain out at midnight the lunatic called her laughing into the phone.

He burglared her home taking her beloved pets. Her two dogs. She had also been pregnant by him. That she found out at hospital after he beat her senseless. The pregnancy was ectopic so of course she lost the baby. What did this guy do?

He buried the pregnancy test stick in a little coffin. Yeah he did.

The link has alot of photographs of them together. That's back in 2000. There's also proof from texts how he most likely killed her cats. Threats abounded. Scary, scary guy. Oh yeah and he experimented with Class A drugs he purchased from prostitutes to see if he could control them.

Whaaaaat?

He murders all these women and then tries to kill himself with a sock? Do they have lightbulbs in them prisons. He could easily just eat a lightbulb.

Of course he has mental health issues. Too little too late. JMO but I say keep him there. No hospital for him. He had time to go in one while he was carousing and murdering women. Heck, he was making it to school.

I bet he's missing his lizards.

LOL. "Ouch, my funny ribs." Great response. And - exactly!

For some reason, I had missed the surmise that he shot one of his victims with a bolt from a crossbow and LE was investigating the possibility that he then ingested a part of the woman - and thus "the Crossbow Cannibal." As I read that in one of the tabloids, that could be sheer fiction, of course.

Easy to see why a part of England clamors for the return of public hangings.

I missed when he was at Rampton but here is some history of the facility.


Rampton Hospital houses about 400 patients who have been detained under the Mental Health Act 1983 (http://www.websleuths.com/wiki/Mental_Health_Act_1983) under one of these classifications:

Mental illness
Psychopathic (personality) disorder
(Severe) mental impairment, which is the legal term for what would now be called a learning disability (http://www.websleuths.com/wiki/Learning_disability).[1] (http://www.websleuths.com/forums/#cite_note-0)
Rampton Hospital has a staff (http://www.websleuths.com/wiki/Employee) of about 2000 and provides the national service for patients with a learning disability, women and deaf people requiring high security care. It also provides services for men suffering from mental illness and personality disorder (http://www.websleuths.com/wiki/Personality_disorder). The hospital has a Dangerous and Severe Personality Disorder Unit opened in 2004 as part of a national DSPD pilot (the Peaks Unit).
About a quarter of the patients have had no significant contact with the criminal justice system, but have been detained under the Mental Health Act and are considered to require treatment in conditions of high security owing to their "dangerous, violent or criminal propensities". Others have been convicted of an offence by the courts and either ordered to be detained in hospital or subsequently transferred there from prison.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rampton_Secure_Hospital

Even as a child I knew that Rampton was known as one of the hospitals for severe cases of mental issues and all these years later it still has the same chilling affect on me.

I know wfgodot. It's not funny, but come on. You go around murdering women well even chasing them and shoot them with a crossbow and probably eat parts of their body and ya try and off yourself with a sock?:doh:

Unfortunately yes they have that live on video that the beautiful Ms. Blamires was shot in the head with the crossbow. The flesh part I'm not even going to write about.

Belinda says he had a photograph of himself up in his room. A big one. See, that gets me as well. Like, who does that?:waitasec:

Not sure if he was or went to Rampton, but thank you to SallyLu for all the information. Hospitals for the criminally insane just have a way of freaking ya out from the time you are a child then into adulthood. Well, obviously but anyone did this stuff is criminally insane in my book.

I never can get over though how these guys have/had like real live "normal" run of the mill girlfriends. Just like you and I. It always makes me wonder like about any a tad off guy I dated or something. Who is capable of such horrendous actions?:eek:

Double post, sorry.

Wakefield Prison is in trouble. This murderer was supposed to be monitored on a surveilance camera constantly. A guard happened to look up at the monitor and was like "Holy crapolla he's trying to kill himself". And?

Griffith's put a plastic bag over his head. (Why is there a plastic bag in his cell?) and then tied his socks around that. Guards pulled the bag off just in time.

LE are mad. They put so much time into catching this cat I can just imagine. It's the same prison Ian Huntley overdosed in twice. Then another murderer a Doctor successfully commited suicide.

Griffiths has not been moved to a Psych hospital. He's now in the secured medical unit of Wakefield.

Just keeping up with the news.

This guy is trying to quit smoking. He smoked two packs a day. I guess you are permitted to smoke still in England's prisons? Must be because he has a reason to quit.

His health.:doh:

That's what he says. Why is this news worthy? Because they are giving him what we call Chantix. Maybe it's got a different name in England? Champix. Anywho that supposedly leads to suicidal tendencies and he just tried to commit suicide.

Not certain if this is in euros or what but they tell the cost of the medication and how long he will be on it.

It didn't, unfortunately. Still smoking like a freight train. I have also tried Zyban before and that turned me into a raging lunatic. Even my daughter remembers me being on that and she was little. Not pretty. I've tried just about everything there is to try.

So, why exactly are they paying for an expensive anti-smoking treatment for a serial killer? If they want to treat it, why not give him the much less expensive generic smoking patches? Generally, you want to treat nicotine withdrawal in order to prevent someone from becoming an ax murderer, but since he already is..... :waitasec:

Ian Brady sure is still going, I think the "hunger strike" has been on 7 years or so.

Ian Huntley, the Soham killer. Maxine Carr was his accomplice. Awful case, summarized here:

:eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:In the photo of Suzanne in the lift with this lunatic where he's gesturing with his one hand I think she's looking at him like something is up.

Such a beautiful girl.

This guy is a chamellion. He looks different all the time to me. The way he stands caught on camera compared to his Myspace photos compared to his mugshot compared to his mad a*s look in that hallway.

Plus I didn't know he immediately chased that poor girl with that crossbow. It's only a matter of what? Four minutes?

Maybe he'll starve to death. I know they won't allow it. I hope he's tortured by the inamtes as they tell him he is cursed. I'm a mean person like that.

Lunatics all over the world and thanks alot to Britains sensationalized news papers. You'd think they'd stick to that already overdone Royal Wedding coming up.



2Goldfish I am sorry I said that about your Royals. Apologies to any of our posters from the UK.

Griffiths is still on a hunger strike. He didn't even eat his Christmas dinner. Oh well boo hoo. He is however drinking liquids.

He's a difficult prisoner and won't speak to anyone.

Daily Mirror's anxious to get an article out of it all, whether he's talking or not:

Crossbow Cannibal Stephen Griffiths urged to make death bed confessions - did he kill Claudia Lawrence? (http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/top-stories/2011/02/03/crossbow-cannibal-stephen-griffiths-urged-to-make-death-bed-confessions-did-he-kill-claudia-lawrence-115875-22894995/)

As he enters the fourth month of a prison hunger strike, detectives are quizzing the 41-year-old monster about the disappearance of seven women – including chef Claudia Lawrence, 35, who vanished in York two years ago.
---
Detectives have been making daily trips to Griffiths’s cell in Wakefield jail’s hospital wing in a desperate effort to get him to talk. Three guards are on duty outside at all times.

Two murder squad officers spent two hours at his bedside on Tuesday morning. Another two officers returned for two hours in the afternoon.
---
“They are looking at a long list of unsolved crimes and disappearances, especially in the Yorkshire area – and because of his worsening health time is rapidly running out.”
---


Are these women among his victims?

Rebecca Hall, 19, was battered to death in Bradford in April 2001. Her body was dumped in an alley yards from Griffiths’s flat.

Yvonne Fitt, 33, was found bound and gagged in a shallow grave after going missing in Bradford in January 1992. Gemma Simpson, 24, was last seen in May 2000 boarding a bus for Leeds city centre. She was planning to visit a friend in Huddersfield.

Michaela Hague, 25, and Dawn Shields, 19, vanished from Sheffield’s vice zone.

Michaela was killed on Bonfire Night 2001 in a Sheffield car park used by prostitutes after she was picked up by a man in a blue Ford Sierra.Dawn, who had a son now aged 17, was strangled and buried in a shallow grave at Mam Tor, Derbyshire, in 1994.

Ended his hunger strike after 120 days. Of course he beat a record. Now he's planning on suing the prison for not watching out for him.:banghead::banghead::banghead:
