Serial Killer Peter Tobin dead in jail

One of the most heinous “psychopaths” in Scottish criminal history, PETER Tobin, passed away in custody.

After years of health issues, the infamous serial killer and sex monster passed yesterday at the age of 76.

The killer passed away while serving a life sentence for the killings of Dinah McNicol, Vicky Hamilton, and Angelika Kluk, with many additional victims being suspected.

The devil, who was originally from Johnstone, Renfrewshire, passed away at last after being “at death’s door” for months, according to insiders.

The psychopath carries a long list of sinister secrets to his grave, including the identities and whereabouts of other victims who are believed to have perished at his ruthless hands.

Tobin is regarded as one of the UK’s worst serial offenders, with convictions for burglary, forgery, rape, and murder on his record.

He had spent his entire life committing crimes throughout Britain, including sex attacks on two teenage females, before his 2007 conviction for the murder of Polish student Angelika cemented his image in the public mind.

Under the fictitious name Pat McLaughlin, he had been employed as a “handyman” at St. Patrick’s Church in Glasgow’s Anderston in September 2006.

Tobin attacked the 23-year-old, beat, raped, and stabbed her to death, then concealed her body under the church floorboards using multiple aliases to avoid detection.

Judge Lord Menzies called Tobin “an terrible man” after the High Court in Edinburgh found him guilty and sentenced him to life in prison.

The monster’s third victim was Dinah McNicol

The case threw light into Tobin’s history, and the following year he was found guilty of killing Vicky Hamilton, a 15-year-old Bathgate schoolgirl who disappeared in 1991 from a bus stop in Redding, close to Falkirk.

Police discovered her remains and the body of a third victim, Dinah McNicol, during a thorough search of Tobin’s former home in Irvine Drive, Margate, Kent.

Dinah, 18, had not been seen since she and Tobin picked her up at a Hampshire music festival in 1991. Vicky had not been seen since that time either.

Tobin received two further life terms, but he has consistently refused to help authorities look into any crimes connected to the brute.

In between frequent visits to the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh, where he eventually passed away, he had been receiving round-the-clock nursing care at HMP Edinburgh.

“Unfortunately, very few of the worst convicts truly rot in jail – but this is exactly what is happening to Tobin,” one insider stated at the time.
