THE MONSTER BEHIND THE MASK
Almost all the victims remembered the killer and serial rapist as having steely blue eyes.
He was a man described as being around 177cm tall who carried a rifle and wore a handmade balaclava, which hid all of his features except for bushy eyebrows and auburn hair.
Described as being aged between 20 and 27, police believed the man had an athletic build and rode a motorbike. Detectives say he was most likely a factory worker or tradesman and many of the victims detected a distinctive chemical smell on his clothing.
Many said their attacker was a polite, well-spoken man, who apologised to his victims.
He was also described as an “inexperienced rapist” who was potentially impotent.
