PETER Tobin is one of Britain’s most notorious serial killers and is a member of an exclusive club of people who will NEVER be released from prison.
His name is back in the limelight, as a new BBC documentary, The Hunt for Bible John, explores his connection to the equally infamous Bible John.
Who is Peter Tobin and many murders was he convicted of?
Peter Tobin is a Glasgow-based serial killer currently serving life without parole after being convicted of the brutal murders of three innocent women.
He was born on August 27, 1946, and is now 75-year-old.
The monster, who had served ten years for raping two 14-year-old girls, was found guilty of attacking Polish student Angelika Kluk in 2006.
When detectives quizzed him about other killings, he snarled: “I couldn’t give a f***.”
He beat 23-year-old Angelika with a table leg, stabbing and raping her in the horrific attack – which took place in a Church in Glasgow.
Officers racked up more than 1,500 hours of overtime before they caught Tobin for the 1991 murders of Vicky Hamilton and Dinah McNicol – with the subsequent charges leading to a life sentence.

At the time of his sentencing, the judge said the man had been involved in “the truly evil abduction” – adding that he was “unfit to live in a decent society.”
He said: “It is hard for me to convey the loathing and revulsion that ordinary people will feel for what you have done.”
Was Peter Tobin Bible John?
The parallels between Tobin and the notorious Sixties murderer known as Bible John have sparked such speculation that cops are seriously probing a possible link.
It was between February 1968 and October 1969 that Bible John savagely assaulted and murdered his three brunette victims – Patricia Docker, 25, Jemima McDonald, 32, and 29-year-old Helen Puttock – who had all been wearing black dresses.
All three were strangled with their own tights after being picked up by a handsome, smartly dressed, charismatic man at the city’s Barrowland Ballroom.
The killer earned his nickname after a taxi driver who drove the murderer with his last victim remembered him muttering quotes from the Bible – sparking speculation that the killer was a religious nut.
One near-victim said she was positive that Tobin is the killer – but cops have ruled out any connection.
Did cops probe him over Louise Kay?
In 2010 Tobin was re-arrested in connection with a series of sex assaults in Scotland – and detectives quizzed him about Louise Kay.
Search teams and forensic archaeologists spent 15 days excavating a large rear garden and examining the basement areas of his old house in Brighton.
They drilled into concrete below the property in Portslade, East Sussex, where he lived in the Eighties with wife Cathy Wilson and their young son.
But no evidence that he had any part in Louise’s disappearance was found and he was never charged in connection with it.
