Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe threatened to kill jail doctor the day before she died of a brain haemorrhage

Gloating Peter Sutcliffe boasted how he scared the life out of a doctor in jail – the day before she died of a brain haemorrhage.

Yorkshire Ripper Sutcliffe bragged to pals that he left psychiatrist Daphne Sasieni “frightened to death” after threatening to stab her in the eye with a pen.

Dr Sasieni, who was interviewing the monster while he was on remand, died aged 54 after collapsing the next day.

She had been having a consultation with Sutcliffe in 1981 as he was awaiting trial for his notorious killing spree.

Sutcliffe, 34 at the time, told a friend: “She was saying things that upset me, so I thought, ‘I’ll upset you’.

“I said to her, ‘Before you could ring the buzzer and bring the staff in, I could get that pen and jab it into your eye straight into your brain and you’d be dead’.

“She got up and ran to the door terrified and said, ‘Where were you? Where were you?”

A source added: “Sutcliffe boasted that she died the next day, after going off work for a two-week holiday.”

The doctor Sutcliffe threatened died in March 1981

Dr Sasieni died in March 1981.

She had been working as a medical officer and psychiatrist at HMP Armley, Leeds, where Sutcliffe was held ahead of his trial for murdering 13 women and attempting to kill another seven.

The fiend, who is now 71 and uses his mother’s maiden name Coonan, told the friend the doctor had been “frightened to death” by his threat.

The reign of terror only ended in January 1981 when he was arrested with a prostitute in his car. He was jailed following a trial that May.

He has been questioned over a further 17 attacks, one of which is said to have taken place 11 years before his first proven murder.
