The vile serial killer died of coronavirus on Friday after refusing treatment
Ex-intelligence officer Chris Clark told the Daily Mirror that he is convinced that the grim tally of unsolved cases could be the work of the vile serial killer, who died in hospital on Friday.
He told the paper he wants the National Crime Agency to reinvestigate the killings – and urged the Prime Minister to order a “ground-breaking” probe into the murderer’s activities.
Mr Clark told the Mirror: “I’ve been able to link the Ripper by method, motive and opportunity to cold cases that have remained dormant for decades.
“The key to tying these threads together was a timeline of Sutcliffe’s life with his wife, Sonia, and his job as an HGV driver travelling across the length and breadth of the UK.
“The evidence is out there and the victims deserve better.”
‘VICTIMS DESERVE BETTER’
Sutcliffe carried out a terrifying killing spree in the north of England between 1975 and 1980, often targeting young and vulnerable sex workers.
He was finally caught in January, 1981, after being stopped for having false number-plates, and four months later he was handed 20 life terms at the Old Bailey for the sickening crimes.
But Mr Clark is convinced the monster was responsible for a long list of other murder cases, as well as another seventeen attacks in which the victims survived.
The ex-cop, now an investigative journalist, believes that Fred Craven – who was killed in Bingley, West Yorks – was the Ripper’s first victim in 1966.
This is nearly ten years before Sutcliffe murdered his first known victim, Wilma McCann, in October 1975.
According to Mr Clark, other victims could include legal secretary Jackie Ansell-Lamb, 18, and 24-year-old student teacher Barbara Mayo.
Both were found dead months apart in 1970, and had been hitch-hiking.
Sutcliffe is also linked to the killing of Gloria Booth – who was bludgeoned and mutilated in Ruislip, West London in 1971.

According to the Mirror, the vile killer also showed no remorse for his crimes as he lay on his deathbed.
As he died, he is reported to have moaned: “I’m not going to make it, I won’t be returning, I’m sorry, I’m ready to go.”
Sources said that, as he approached his final days, Sutcliffe never spoke about the murders or his past life – and he was “obsessed with his own death”.
OBSESSED WITH DEATH
They added: “During October he became more convinced he was going to get Covid and die.
“It was almost an obsession.”
The Sun also reported earlier how depraved Sutcliffe died just days after repeatedly failing to contact his former wife Sonia in a string of desperate phone calls.
The killer moaned to pals that he was unable to speak to his ex-partner, who still owns the house the pair bought together at the start of his murderous spree.

A source who spoke to him on a regular basis said: “Sutcliffe had grown increasingly frustrated at his lack of contact with Sonia in the last weeks of his life.
“He got very frustrated when he could not get hold of Sonia and it ate away at him. He would lash out at Michael and really missed speaking to her.”
They added: “He never showed any remorse for his killings and incredibly moaned that his biggest regret over the murders of 13 women was the years he spent apart from his former wife.”
Sutcliffe was taken from Frankland to University Hospital of North Durham on Wednesday, October 28, following a suspected heart attack.
After five nights on a cardiac ward, he was discharged back to jail, where he tested positive for Covid-19 and was placed in isolation.
Sutcliffe started “deteriorating rapidly” on Wednesday, before dying during the early hours of Friday.
