Families of victims murdered by the Yorkshire Ripper are demanding his estate be shared between them.
Mystery surrounds the contents of Peter Sutcliffe’s will, amid claims he owns two plots of land in Scotland.
The late serial killer boasted that one of the Kray twins offered to buy the land, gifted to him by a female admirer while he was in Broadmoor hospital.
But Neil Jackson, 62, whose mother Emily was Sutcliffe’s second victim, said: “Any money or property he had an interest in should be divided up and handed over as compensation to the families he destroyed.”
Neil, who had to identify his mum’s body when he was just 17, went on: “Sutcliffe didn’t just kill my mam, he killed my family.
"We got no compensation or support. I’ve never received a penny.
“The Government should really look into what funds and property he had.”
Survivor Tracey Brown: 59, who was 14 when Sutcliffe attacked her and left her for dead, agrees with Neil.
Sonia yesterday answered the door at their former marital home and said “no comment” when asked about the plots of land Sutcliffe was supposed to own.
When asked what she intended to do with his will and if she was considering possibly giving some of it to the families of his victims she paused and repeated “no comment” before closing the door.
Neil was 17 when his mother, from Leeds, was murdered by Sutcliffe in 1976.
The serial killer picked up the 42-year-old mum-of-three outside the Gaiety pub in Roundhay Road in the city and drove her to some derelict buildings on an industrial estate where he hit her twice on the head with a hammer.
“It was hard. I was 17 and left to struggle,” Neil said. “But he went on to live a life of luxury inside Broadmoor, ordering pizza deliveries.
“I was working as a roofer then a builder, six or seven days a week.
“I really want to know what’s in his will. He was supposed to have got £82,000 in compensation for when he was blinded and then when someone stabbed him.
“If that’s true, what happened to that money? Nobody should be profiting off him.
“And if this plot of land in Scotland is true, that needs looking into.
“I don’t know what happened to his house but I think it was signed over to his ex wife Sonia. I’ve no idea how that happened.
“All his belongings should be auctioned off too and handed to the victims’ families.
“We had no victim support at the time to look after us. If there is anything it should go to the families.
“It makes me annoyed to think that he has profited from what he’s done.
The grandfather added: “It makes me angry and mad because he had a better life locked up than I did outside.”
Tracey from Bingley in West Yorkshire, was not named in the charges against Sutcliffe when he was jailed in 1981 but he later confessed to attacking her.
He admitted the attack while at Broadmoor high security hospital during a meeting with Keith Hellawell, then chief constable of Cleveland Police.
She said of the Ripper: “Any money that horrible beast has collected, should be split with the victims and survivors, it’s the least they could do for us.
“At least it would be a bit of solace and there are families who are vulnerable and struggling who could do with this money.
“The authorities need to look into this. Did he make a will? Did he have this land?
“We need to know, he’s still causing problems now he’s 6ft under!”
Mo Lea, now 60, who was an art student in Leeds in 1980. She almost had her spine severed by Sutcliffe.
She told The Mirror: “It is a valid point and a massive question.
“This is a conversation which is not one for the victims - as there are so few of us left - but for the professionals and West Yorkshire Police.
“It’s a really important point and one that is worth pursuing.”
Sutcliffe’s brother Mick has also been pleading with his deceased brother’s ex-wife Sonia Woodward to tell them what’s in the will.
He said he had been contacted by a fellow inmate who knew his brother and claims to have seen the title deeds to the Scottish land, gifted by a woman named Pauline.
The letter said: “As for the two plots of land up in Scotland, it looked like plots to build on as the map was set out like a housing estate and the title deeds were in Peter’s original name Sutcliffe so it must have been a long time ago when Pauline bought it for him.”
Sutcliffe died in November, aged 74, after contracting Covid-19.
Sonia, now remarried, 70, still owns the former marital home, a £279,000 detached house in Bradford.
Days ago she was seen waiting at a bus stop wearing a mask and hat near the house – the first time she has been spotted in public since Sutcliffe’s death.
Sutcliffe was given 20 life sentences in 1981 for murdering 13 women and attempting to murder another seven.
He was transferred to high-security Frankland from Broadmoor in 2016 after the experts ruled he was no longer mentally ill.
