Milly killer says HE’S distressed by TV show
Brother’s claim as 3 new women say Bellfield targeted them
MILLY Dowler killer Levi Bellfield took a week off his prison job after claiming he is stressed over the TV show about his vile crimes.
Police are set to investigate new sex attack claims made against the murderer since the ITV drama Manhunt aired earlier this week.
But Bellfield, 50, who is serving life in top- security Frankland prison, County Durham, whines that HE is the one suffering
Scotland Yard confirmed officers will be assessing the new crime reports. But meanwhile his brother Richard Turner told how the monster was unable to work for a week.
And Bellfield grumbled that he wasn’t even allowed to watch the show on TV – a privilege sometimes given to prisoners for good behaviour.
Richard said: “My brother never watched the programme.
“He had no access to a TV. He was unable to work f or a week because of the programme being aired and the distress it caused him.”
The sick claim will horrify the families of
Millie Dowler, 13,
French student Amelie
Delagrange, 22, and
Marsha Mcdonnell, 19, who fell prey to the serial killer in South
West London. Bellfield’s brazen reaction comes after former Detective Chief Inspector Colin Sutton – played by Martin Clunes in the series – revealed he had been contacted by three women who claimed aimed they were targeted by Bellfield.
Now-retired Mr Sutton said: “It’s not a complete surprise, to be honest.
“We just don’t know what the boundaries of this man’s offending were.”
The Metropolitan Police said: “The Met has been made aware of a number of allegations following the recent TV series Manhunt.
“These will be assessed by officers from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences command.”
The ITV drama depicting the role of Mr Sutton in hunting down the fiend caused controversy when it was being filmed.
Marsha Mcdonnell’s brother Jack said there was no need for her 2003 murder to be retold because it was too painful. But the airing has led to possible new lines of enquiry against Bellfield, who also attempted to murder 18-year old Kate Sheedy by running her over twice on her last day of school in 2004.
Earlier this week mum Catherine Harvey revealed she believed she had also been targeted by Bellfield.
