Chat It's Fate - - True-life -

Killer GP Harold Ship­man is thought to have mur­dered around 250 pa­tients, mostly el­derly women, by in­ject­ing them with lethal doses of di­amor­phine. Ship­man, one of the world’s most pro­lific se­rial killers, was sen­tenced to life im­pris­on­ment in Jan­uary 2000 - but he evaded jus­tice by hang­ing him­self in his cell at Wakefield Wake­fi­field Prison in Jan­uary 2004. An­other killer, pae­dophile Roy Whit­ing, who mur­dered seven-year-old Sarah Payne in 2000, was later put in the same cell in the prison, nick­named Mon­ster Man­sion. Whit­ing claimed the cell was haunted by Ship­man, leav­ing him too scared to go to sleep. Whit­ing de­manded to be moved af­ter be­ing left ter­ri­fi­fied ter­ri­fied by eerie noises and ghostly goings-on.
