by Keenan Schlunke (2020-08-21)


The serial killer Levi Bellfield is set to be interviewed by police in prison about several unsolved violent and sexual offences dating back to 1996, it has been reported. 

Detectives want to question the 52-year-old after victims came forward following last year's ITV drama Manhunt, which focused on the search for Bellfield after a murder, according to The Sun.   

He was convicted in 2008 of the murders of Marsha McDonnell, 19, in 2003 and French student Amelie Delagrange, 22, in 2004.

In 2011 he was also convicted of the 2002 murder of 13-year-old schoolgirl Milly Dowler. 

A source told the publication: 'There are a lot of violent and sexual offences that are being looked into. Some came due to publicity generated by Manhunt and some are separate from that.

'Bellfield is quite an intelligent man, but he was not an intelligent criminal. He had a clear pattern of behaviour, which was to stalk women with a hammer and attack them.
