Serial killer Rose West threatens suicide if she loses her sight

Serial killer Rose West is losing her sight and has threatened to kill herself according to reports.

The 64-year-old is said to be ‘very sick’ at HMP Durham where she’s serving a life sentence for the murder of 10 people.

She was diagnosed with irreversible glaucoma in July.

West is reportedly devastated at the idea of losing her sight.

A source told The Sunday People: “It’s already affected her sight. She’s wearing her specs all the time. “She’s told people she’ll kill herself if she ends up blind. But apart from her vision, she’s fit as an ox.”

The prison source added that she wears her trademark glasses all the time now after not wearing them for a number of years.

The Daily Star previously reported that the prison has to go into lockdown when West is brought out of her sell to prevent an attack from fellow inmates.

“She’s very ill. Her medical records are closely guarded, and she

Out of Sight, Into Mind: Art On the Margins of the Seattle Art Fair.

If the Seattle Art Fair is Seattle’s answer to the Venice Biennale, then perhaps Out of Sight is our answer to that time Yayoi Kusama stood outside the 1966 Biennale peddling shiny mirrored balls for $2 each. She was not invited to exhibit as an official participant, but in retrospect, her performative critique of the art world’s dual obsessions with profit and narcissism was probably one of the more memorable things that happened that year.

Established in 2015 as an unofficial addendum to the Seattle Art Fair, Out of Sight is an annual survey of Northwest art that thrives,

How historically accurate is In Plain Sight? The true story of serial …

“If you didn’t put ‘This is a true story’ at the start of this, you wouldn’t believe it,” says Martin Compston, who stars as sinister serial killer Peter Manuel in ITV’s new crime drama In Plain Sight. 

The three-part series is based on the efforts of the determined Detective Muncie (Douglas Henshall) to prove Manuel’s guilt for a string of sexual assaults and murders near Glasgow. But it is a drama, not a documentary – so what is the true story of Manuel’s crime spree and how he was brought to justice?

What was Peter Manuel like as a child?

Born in New York in 1927 to Scottish parents, the youngster was brought to Scotland, before moving to Coventry with his family at the age of 11. He was bright and won a spot at a grammar school, but it wasn’t long before Manuel began acting out.

Convicted of “housebreaking”, he was sent to

In Plain Sight’s Martin Compston on becoming serial killer Peter Manuel: “It’s the darkest thing that I’ll ever play."

You never expect a sunny nature from an actor who’s made his name as a policeman.

It’s ridiculous, but it’s true: Martin Compston’s superb performance as the often isolated, frequently luckless, mostly good-guy Steve Arnott, in Jed Mercurio’s Line of Duty, primes you to expect, at the very least, a serious, laconic guy in a sharp suit and a moral quandary.

Instead, he has quite a playful, expansive manner, although he’s thoughtful with it. He has an athletic energy; standing on Dean Street in London’s Soho, he looks like a young, Brando-era boxer, who doesn’t much like the violence but enjoys jumping around and wearing shiny shorts. I discover this is partly true because he started his career as a professional footballer.

To have had two dream careers before you hit 30 (he’s now 32) might cause a lesser

New TV drama In Plain Sight reveals the story of serial killer Peter …

Shortly afterwards William Watt’s lawyer, Lawrence Dowdall, began to receive letters from Manuel in which he claimed another prisoner had confessed to the murders. The letters revealed details of the case that were not known publicly. Dowdall’s reaction to Manuel’s letters is telling. He described him as “the most vicious psychopath it has ever been my misfortune to meet”.

But this was an age before forensics and a search of Manuel’s parents’ house turned up insufficient evidence to prove, as Muncie suspected, that he was the killer. Muncie’s colleagues began to joke that the detective had “Manuelitis”, so ready was he to see Manuel’s mark on any crime. But Muncie knew Manuel was guilty. Isabelle Cooke, also 17, was Manuel’s next victim. 

He attacked her on the way to a dance on December 28. Three days later he shot another family of three, Peter and Doris Smart and their 10-year-old son
