Seven Tobin rape victims identified
Thursday 27 January 2011
Police confirmed last night that they had identified seven women raped by serial killer Peter Tobin.
Officials reported that following an appeal in July, the women had come forward with information linking them to the convicted sex offender, 64, who's serving three life sentences for the murders of schoolgirl Vicky Hamilton, 15, Dinah McNicol, 18, and Angelika Kluk, 23.
Detective Superintendent David Swindle, of Strathclyde Police, who's leading the investigation into Tobin's past, gave an update on the case during a new appeal on Crimewatch on BBC 1.
He said: "Since that last appeal we've identified seven women who have been raped by Peter Tobin and we've followed up thousands of lines of inquiry, including the commencement of the excavations in Brighton and Hampshire.
"Unfortunately, we never found anything at these, but the search for the truth regarding what Tobin has done continues."
