The Crossbow Cannibal: The Definitive Story of Stephen Griffiths - The Self-Made Serial Killer
A major search and recovery operation began when a young woman's remains were recovered in the River Aire in May 2010. Police had been investigating the disappearance of Shelley Armitage and Susan Rushworth who had gone missing in 2009; but the remains belonged to Suzanne Blamires and were to unravel a gruesome and horrifying chain of events. 40-year-old PhD student Stephen Griffiths was arrested by West Yorkshire Police after CCTV footage of him attacking Ms Blamires at his block of flats was discovered by a caretaker at the complex. She was shot with a crossbow. Once arrested Griffiths told Police: I've killed a lot more than Suzanne Blamires -- I've killed loads. Adding gruesomely that he had eaten some of her. Griffiths possessed disturbing video recordings and images in his flat and police found blood from both Ms Armitage and Ms Rushworth linking them to Griffiths. Having admitted to murdering Suzanne Blamires, 36, Shelley Armitage, 31, and 43-year-old Susan Rushworth, who worked as prostitutes in the Bradford area, Griffiths, who called himself the Crossbow Cannibal was jailed for life for their wicked and monstrous murders. This is the full story of the man known as the 'Crossbow Cannibal', whose chillingly evil actions brought terror to the streets of Bradford.
