Scotland’s Notorious Murderer Dies In Prison After 37 Years
Angus Sinclair, one of Scotland’s most notorious murderers, has died at the age of 73.
He was convicted of four killings, including the 1977 World’s End murders, but was suspected of killing four more women in Glasgow the same year.
Sinclair had been in prison since 1982 after being convicted of a series of rapes and indecent attacks on children.
Kevin Scott, the brother of one of the murder victims, described the serial killer as a “monster”.
Sinclair was jailed for a minimum of 37 years after being found guilty of murdering Helen Scott and her friend Christine Eadie.
Speaking to BBC Scotland, Mr Scott said: “He was a monster. To treat innocent people the way he did was just evil. You would need to be a beast to commit those crimes.
“I would have wanted him to live longer to serve more of the 37 year sentence, as opposed to getting the easy way out.
“I do feel for the families of the other victims that he may have had. They’ll never be afforded the kind of justice that we received.”
The Scottish Prison Service confirmed on Monday that Sinclair died overnight at HMP Glenochil in Alloa, Clackmannanshire.
