Serial killer has heart attack
CONVICTED serial killer Leonard Fraser is in a stable condition in hospital after suffering a heart attack in his jail cell, authorities say.
The 55-year-old was taken to Brisbane’s Princess Alexandra Hospital on Tuesday after suffering chest pains while in his cell at the Wolston Correctional Centre on the city’s outskirts.
A hospital spokesperson yesterday said Fraser remained in hospital in a stable condition after suffering the heart attack.
Fraser is Queensland’s first convicted serial killer and serving four indefinite life terms.
A Brisbane Supreme Court jury in 2003 convicted him for the murders of Sylvia Benedetti, 19, and Beverly Leggo, 36, as well as the manslaughter of Julie Turner, 39.
