In the midsts of the UK’s history of serial murderers, Peter Tobin is a man with a dark past. Convicted of the murder of three women across the UK, and an earlier brutal attack on two teenage girls, Tobin is currently serving three life sentences with a recommendation that he is never to be released. This is a man who traveled around the country, used up to 40 aliases to avoid detection and to avoid anyone discovering his previous crimes. Caught for murder at 60-years-old, authorities’ fear he has been operating for more than 40 years and could be responsible for many more deaths. Peter Tobin was in the Glasgow area at the time of the Bible John murders and known to frequent the Barrowland Ballroom where all three victims met their killer. His appearance at that time bears a striking resemblance to the artist’s impression of Bible John. He has connections to religion and he was jailed for burglary and forgery right at the time the Bible John murders stopped. Could Peter Tobin be Bible John?
