Top 10 Notable Residents of Broadmoor Hospital

Broadmoor Hospital is a high-security psychiatric hospital at Crowthorne in the Borough of Bracknell Forest in Berkshire, England. It is the best known of the three high-security psychiatric hospitals in England, the other two being Ashworth and Rampton. The hospital was built in 1863 to a design by Sir Joshua Jebb, and covers 210,000 square metres (53 acres) within its secure perimeter. After the escape of John Straffen (see below) in 1952, who murdered a local child, the hospital set up an alarm system. The hospital has seen some prolific inmates since its inception, and this list describes 10 of its most famous tenants.

Note: If you’re just interested in Charles Bronson, we’ve got an entire list dedicated to the most insane prisoner in England.

Robert Napper

Robert-Napper--001

Robert Clive Napper is a convicted British murderer and rapist who was remanded in Broadmoor Hospital indefinitely on 18 December 2008 for the manslaughter of Rachel Nickell. He is a paranoid schizophrenic who has also been diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome. The marriage of Napper’s parents was violent; Napper witnessed violent attacks on his mother which ended in divorce when he was 10. Napper and his siblings (two brothers and a sister) were placed in foster care and underwent psychiatric treatment.

Meanwhile, Napper underwent a personality change after a family friend assaulted him on a camping holiday when he was 12. The offender was jailed, but Napper became introverted, obsessively tidy and reclusive according to his mother. He also bullied his siblings and spied on his sister while she undressed.

Napper’s convictions include an offense with an air-gun, stabbing a young mother forty-nine times in front of her two year-old son, killing then sexually assaulting a woman and smothering her four-year-old daughter, and admitted to two rapes, but it is believed he is the ‘Green Chain Rapist’ who carried out at least 70 savage attacks across south-east London over a four-year period ending in 1994

Graham Young

Article-1088801-01349Dc30000044D-878 468X312

Graham Frederick Young is notable for his obsession with the use of poison, and for having been imprisoned for murder in his teens, only to kill again after his release. Born in Neasden, north London, he was fascinated from a young age by poisons and their effects. In 1961 at 14 he started to test poisons on his family, enough to make them violently ill. He amassed large quantities of antimony and digitalis by repeatedly buying small amounts, lying about his age and claiming they were for science experiments at school.

In 1962 Young’s stepmother Molly died from poison. He had been poisoning his father, sister, and a school friend. Young’s aunt Winnie, who knew of his fascination with chemistry and poisons, became suspicious. He might have escaped suspicion as he suffered the same nausea and sicknesses as his family, however he sometimes forgot which foods he had laced. He was sent to a psychiatrist, who recommended contacting the police. Young was arrested on May 23, 1962. He confessed to the attempted murders of his father, sister, and friend. The remains of his stepmother could not be analyzed because she had been cremated.

Young was sentenced to 15 years in Broadmoor but was released after nine years, having been deemed “fully recovered”. After release from hospital in 1971, he began work as a storekeeper at John Hadland Laboratories, which manufactured thallium bromide-iodide infrared lenses used in military equipment. Soon after he began work, his foreman, Bob Egle, grew ill and died. Young had been making tea laced with poisons for his colleagues. A sickness swept through his workplace and, mistaken for a virus, was nicknamed the Bovingdon Bug. These cases of nausea and illness, sometimes severe enough to require hospitalization, were later attributed to Young and his tea. Young poisoned about 70 people during the next few months, although none fatally. Young is the subject of an extremely good film called The Young Poisoner’s Handbook

Kenneth Erskine

Kenneth-Erskine 280 797434A

Kenneth Erskine is an English serial killer who became known as the Stockwell Strangler. During 1986, Erskine murdered seven elderly people, breaking into their homes and strangling them; most often they were sexually assaulted. The crimes took place in London. A homeless drifter and solvent abuser, Erskine was 24 years old when he committed the crimes, but had the mental age of a 12-year-old. Police suspected Erskine of four others murders but Erskine has never been charged with any of these murders. Erskine was sentenced to life imprisonment with a recommended minimum term of 40 years, but has since been found to be suffering from mental disorder within the meaning of the Mental Health Act 1983, and is therefore now held at Broadmoor. He is unlikely to be freed until at least 2028 and the age of 66. Some 20 years later, the trial judge’s recommendation is still one of the heaviest ever handed out in British legal history.

In February 1996, Erskine was again in the news, this time for preventing the possible murder of Peter Sutcliffe (see below), by raising the alarm as a fellow inmate, Paul Wilson, attempted to strangle Sutcliffe with the flex from a pair of stereo headphones.

David Copeland

News-Graphics-2007- 445205A

David John Copeland is a former member of the British National Party and the National Socialist Movement, who became known as the “London Nail Bomber,” after a 13-day bombing campaign in April 1999 aimed at London’s black, Bangladeshi and gay communities. The bombs killed three, including a pregnant woman, and injured 129, four of whom lost limbs. No warnings were given.

After his arrest, he told psychiatrists that he had started having sadistic dreams when he was about 12, including dreams or fantasies that he had been reincarnated as an SS officer with access to women as slaves. Copeland wrote to BBC correspondent Graeme McLagan, denying that he had schizophrenia, and telling McLagan that the “ZOG,” or Zionist Occupation Government, was pumping him full of drugs in order to sweep him under the carpet. He wrote, “I bomb the blacks, Pakis, degenerates. I would have bombed the Jews as well if I’d got a chance”. When asked by police why he had targeted ethnic minorities, he replied: “Because I don’t like them, I want them out of this country, I believe in the master race.

Although Copeland was diagnosed by five psychiatrists as having paranoid schizophrenia, and a consultant concluded he had a personality disorder, his plea of diminished responsibility was not accepted by the prosecution, which was under pressure not to concede to his pleas of guilty to manslaughter. He was convicted of murder on June 30, 2000, and given six concurrent life sentences.

Peter Sutcliffe

Peter-Sutcliffe 280 489268A

Peter William Sutcliffe is an English serial killer who was dubbed The Yorkshire Ripper. Sutcliffe was convicted in 1981 of murdering 13 women and attacking several others. He is currently serving life imprisonment in Broadmoor. Reportedly a loner at school, he left at the age of 15 and took a series of menial jobs, including two stints as a grave digger during the 1960s. He frequented prostitutes as a young man and it has been speculated that a bad experience with one (during which he was allegedly conned out of money) helped fuel his violent hatred against women.

In 1981, Sutcliffe was stopped by the police with a 24 year old prostitute. A police check revealed the car was fitted with false number plates and Sutcliffe was arrested for this offence and transferred to Dewsbury Police Station, West Yorkshire. At Dewsbury he was questioned in relation to the Yorkshire Ripper case as he matched so many of the physical characteristics known. The next day police returned to the scene of the arrest and discovered a knife, hammer and rope he discarded when he briefly slipped away from police during the arrest. After two days of intensive questioning, on the afternoon of 4 January 1981 Sutcliffe suddenly declared he was the Ripper. Over the next day, Sutcliffe calmly described his many attacks. Weeks later he claimed God told him to murder the women. He displayed emotion only when telling of the murder of his youngest victim, Jayne MacDonald.

At his trial, Sutcliffe pleaded not guilty to 13 counts of murder, but guilty to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility. The basis of this defence was his claim that he was the tool of God’s will. Sutcliffe first claimed to have heard voices while working as a gravedigger, that ultimately ordered him to kill prostitutes. He claimed that the voices originated from a headstone of a deceased Polish man, Bronislaw Zapolski, and that the voices were that of God.

In the years of Sutcliffe’s incarceration, there have been numerous attempts on his life from other inmates. The first was during his stay at HMP Parkhurst when James Costello, a 35-year-old career criminal from Glasgow plunged a broken coffee jar twice into the left side of Sutcliffe’s face. Whilst at Broadmoor he was subject to an attempted strangulation (thwarted by Kenneth Erskine, above) and lost the vision in his left eye after being attacked with a pen.

John Straffen

Article-1088801-0248219E000004B0-41 233X325

John Thomas Straffen was a British serial killer who was the longest-serving prisoner in British legal history. Straffen killed two young girls in the summer of 1951. He was found to be unfit to plead and committed to Broadmoor; during a brief escape in 1952 he killed again. This time he was convicted of murder. Respited due to his mental state, his sentence was commuted to life imprisonment and he remained in prison until his death more than 50 years later.

Aged 8, Straffen was referred to a Child Guidance Clinic for stealing and truancy. In 1939 he first came before a Juvenile Court for stealing a purse from a girl, and was given two years’ probation. His probation officer found that Straffen did not understand the difference between right and wrong, or the meaning of probation. The family was living in crowded lodgings at the time and Straffen’s mother had no time to help, so the probation officer took the boy to a psychiatrist. As a result, Straffen was certified as a mental defective under the Mental Deficiency Act 1927. A report was compiled on him in 1940 which gave his Intelligence Quotient as 58 and placed his mental age at six. When Straffen was 14, he was strongly suspected of being responsible for strangling two prize geese owned by one of the officers of his school; however, no proof was found and it was not noted on his records. At the age of 16 the school authorities undertook a review which found his I.Q. was 64 and his mental age 9 years 6 months and recommended his discharge.

In 1951, Straffen killed two young girls for which he was sent to Broadmoor. In 1952 whilst cleaning some outbuildings, he escaped over a perimeter wall, and within 2 hours had killed another young girl. It was this escape and subsequent murder that urged the government to install an alarm system. To this day, the alarm is tested every Monday morning at 10am for two minutes, and then sounded again to give the ‘all clear’. With hooters located in several locations round Surrey and Berkshire, the alarm can be heard for up to 15 miles in each direction from Broadmoor.

Charles Bronson

217A9Bae-0D36-8Ba2-B03147Ba082F84C7

Charles “Charlie” Bronson (born Michael Gordon Peterson) is an English criminal often referred to in the British press as the “most violent prisoner in Britain”. Born in Luton, England, Michael often found his way into fights before he began a bare-knuckle boxing career in the East End of London. His promoter was not happy with his name and suggested he change it to Charles Bronson.

In 1974 he was imprisoned for a robbery and sentenced to seven years. While in prison he began making a name for himself as a loose cannon often fighting convicts and prison guards. These fights added years onto his sentence. Regarded as a problem prisoner, he was moved 120 times throughout Her Majesty’s Prison Service and spent all but 4 years of his imprisoned life in solitary confinement. What was originally a seven year term stretched out to fourteen year sentence that resulted in his first wife Irene, with whom he had a son, leaving him. He was released on October 30, 1988 but only spent 69 days free before he was arrested again. Bronson has spent a total of just four months and nine days out of custody since 1974. Known as one of the hardest criminals in England, Bronson has written many books about his experiences and famous prisoners he has met throughout his internment.

Bronson has been involved in over a dozen hostage incidents, one of which includes taking hostages and staging a 47-hour rooftop protest at Broadmoor in 1983, causing £750,000 (nearly $1.5m) worth of damage. Bronson has spent time at all three of England’s high-security psychiatric hospitals.

Richard Dadd

Screen Shot 2010-02-21 At 1.42.46 Pm

Richard Dadd was an English painter of the Victorian era, noted for his depictions of fairies and other supernatural subjects, Orientalist scenes, and enigmatic genre scenes, rendered with obsessively minuscule detail. Most of the works for which he is best known were created while he was incarcerated in Broadmoor hospital.

In 1842, Sir Thomas Phillips, the former mayor of Newport, chose Dadd to accompany him as his draftsman on an expedition through Europe to Greece, Turkey, Palestine and finally Egypt. In November of that year they spent a grueling two weeks in Palestine, passing from Jerusalem to Jordan and returning across the Engaddi wilderness. Toward the end of December, while traveling up the Nile by boat, Dadd underwent a dramatic personality change, becoming delusional and increasingly violent, and believing himself to be under the influence of the Egyptian god Osiris. His condition was initially thought to be sunstroke. On his return in the spring of 1843, he was diagnosed to be of unsound mind and was taken by his family to recuperate in the countryside village of Cobham, Kent. In August of that year, having become convinced that his father was the Devil in disguise, Dadd killed him with a knife and fled for France. En route to Paris Dadd attempted to kill another tourist with a razor, but was overpowered and was arrested by the police. Dadd confessed to the killing of his father and was returned to England, where he was committed to the criminal department of Bethlem psychiatric hospital (also known as Bedlam). Here and subsequently at the newly created Broadmoor, Dadd was cared for and encouraged to continue painting.

Dadd probably suffered from a form of paranoid schizophrenia. He appears to have been genetically predisposed to mental illness; two of his siblings were similarly afflicted, while a third had “a private attendant” for unknown reasons.

Daniel M’Naghten

2.2.3.7 00 Full

Daniel M’Naghten (pronounced, and sometimes spelled, McNaughton) was a Scottish woodturner who assassinated English civil servant Edward Drummond while suffering from paranoid delusions. Through his trial and its aftermath, he has given his name to the legal test of criminal insanity in England and other common law jurisdictions known as the M’Naghten Rules.

In 1840 M’Naghten sold his wood turning business and spent two years in London and Glasgow. Whilst in Glasgow in 1841 he complained to various people, including his father, the Glasgow commissioner of police, and an MP, that he was being persecuted by the Tories and followed by their spies. No-one took him seriously, believing him to be deluded. In January 1843, M’Naghten was noticed acting suspiciously around Whitehall in London. On the afternoon of 20 January the Prime Minister’s private secretary, civil servant Edward Drummond, was walking towards Downing Street from Charing Cross when M’Naghten approached him from behind, drew a pistol and fired at point-blank range into his back. M’Naghten was overpowered by a police constable before he could fire a second pistol.

M’Naghten appeared at Bow Street magistrates’ court the morning after the assassination attempt. He made a brief statement in which he described how persecution by the Tories had driven him to act: “The Tories in my native city have compelled me to do this. They follow, persecute me wherever I go, and have entirely destroyed my peace of mind… It can be proved by evidence. That is all I have to say”

Ronald Kray

Prisons-Krays

Ronald Kray along with his twin brother Reginald, were the foremost perpetrators of organized crime in London’s East End during the 1950s and 1960s. Ronald, commonly referred to as Ron or Ronnie, suffered from paranoid schizophrenia. The Krays were involved in armed robberies, arson, protection rackets, violent assaults including torture and the murders of Jack “The Hat” McVitie and George Cornell. As West End nightclub owners they mixed with prominent entertainers including Diana Dors, Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland and politicians, which gave the Krays a veneer of respectability. In the 1960s they became celebrities in their own right, being photographed by David Bailey and interviewed on television.
The Kray twins became famous locally for their gang and the mayhem they caused. They narrowly avoided prison several times and in early 1952 they were called up for National Service. They deserted several times, each time being recaptured.

It was during this period that Ron started to show the first signs of mental illness. He would refuse to eat, shave only one side of his face and suffer wild mood swings, sitting still for hours before erupting into a violent frenzy. On one occasion, Ron climbed into the prison rafters and, according to one guard, refused to come down for some six hours in spite of brother Reggie’s pleas. It is not clear whether at this stage it was another prank to annoy their guards, or if Ron had become unbalanced. Guards at the Canterbury military holding prison were convinced he was dangerously psychotic.

They were arrested in May 1968 and convicted in 1969 by the efforts of a squad of detectives led by Detective Superintendent Leonard “Nipper” Read, and were both sentenced to life imprisonment. Ronnie was eventually certified insane and lived the remainder of his life in Broadmoor, dying on 17 March 1995 of a massive heart attack, aged 61. His funeral on 29 March 1995 was a huge event with people lining the streets. Reggie was released from prison on compassionate grounds in August 2000, a few weeks before his death from cancer.

    Cool!

  • T

    Question: Why did Peter Sutcliffe have so many attempts on his life in prison?

    • 34E

      A lot of inmates respond violently to prisoners who were convicted of rape/pedophilia, or who murdered women and children.

  • astraya

    Dr William Chester Minor #3 on this excellent list here: https://listverse.com/2010/01/16/15-cases-of-penis-removal/

  • AcePro

    Boring! Why is it so England-centric? hehehe…

  • AcePro

    No, seriously…great list. Very interesting. Thank you.

  • chriz

    not ur best but good list

  • AcePro

    See…Americans can also indulge in the history of others. I guarantee somebody from the U.S. will not bitch or complain.

  • Nazim The Pro

    Nice list!

  • gav

    Excellent read, sir!

  • AcePro

    #8 see, we’re already making fun of everybody else. HA!

  • VikaS

    Interesting people. I also agree The Young Poisoner’s Handbook is a great movie.

  • Budgie

    What a waste of good honest taxpayers money, I bullet in the back of the head would be much cheaper that keeping them in custody, and more money saved for our Health Service and the care for the elderly

    • 34E

      For the murderers, yes, but most schizophrenics and people with mental illnesses other than antisocial PD, while not normal, can certainly have fulfilling lives with assistance. In our big psych hospital we have some married couples, lol.

      Tha alternative is having them on the streets, which a huge release of patients in the 70's shows is not favorable – in areas aurrounding hospitals that had to reduce their patient numbers due to the cuts, you'll find that a lot of petty crime, vagrancy, and vandalism is by these people…

  • @T (4): Child killers are generally hated, even amongst other violent criminals, so I would have expected a lot for Kenneth Erskine, but for Peter Sutcliffe, I don’t know. Maybe it was because he murdered women? Interesting question though. Wiki (the font of all knowledge) mentions the attacks on him, but not the reasons.

    • 34E

      Men who target women are persecuted as much as child killers. I've known a LOT of hard men in my life, and most of them had very strong feelings about violence towards women, viewing those that participate in it as cowards and scum.

  • Budgie

    this is the worst list you ever made…..

  • Maximuz04

    ditto

  • DoomSai

    Charles Bronson is one tough guy

  • deeeziner

    What an interesting list. Well written thisnamestaken.

    I’ve always had an interest in the criminally insane and notorious killers, and know a few of the names in this list. Seems that deviance is known throughout the world.

    I, too, wondered why the numerous attempts on Sutcliffe’s life, and while doing Googles to pursue the question came across this:

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/politics/lawandorder/4684906/Yorkshire-Ripper-Peter-Sutcliffe-fit-to-be-freed-from-Broadmoor.html

    Since the guy doesn’t quite fall into the category of “child predator”, perhaps the reason he is so persecuted by his fellow inmates is that he isn’t quite the swell guy, ready to be released citizen, that his doctors seem to feel that he is.

  • Gladiator

    Isn`t Peter Bryan, who killed two people and ate their brains, in Broadmoor?

  • Tragik

    Very interesting. One of the best lists I have read in a while. Nicely done.

  • Posy

    Peter sutcliffe terrorised the north of England in the late 1970s. I was a teenager at the time and remember the harrowing news reports and the anguish of parents and children. He had a devastating effect on the psyche of yorkshire and lancashire. also of note is the ripper tape, purportedly sent by the ripper himself goading police officers. Police manpower was diverted to finding a man with a Sunderland accent therefore on at least one occasion sutcliffe was passed over as a suspect. It was only last year I believe that the tape hoaxer was caught and jailed.

  • Arsnl

    @deeeziner (20): i doubt crazy people have a terrible dislike towards child killers. And since two nuts start to fight, how do you think its probably ones fault since you dont know any of the details
    But we should stop believing that movies about people that are able to behave quietly for decades because they are under surveillance and then explode when free, are true.
    I do believe there are people out there that can get back on track.
    @Budgie (15): how can you kill someone that doesnt know the difference between good and bad? Well luckly its not people like you that make the laws.

    • 34E

      Uh, 'crazy' people, with the exception of antisocial PD sufferers, are not any more immoral or amoral than your average Joe. I guess you've never known a 'nut'. :)

  • thejesuslizard

    This list is way to boring for my American appetite. No Charles Manson or Jeffrey Dahmer……..lame. This list is way to European/British for me. Can we get some American list please! (Blah Blah Blah about some political issue that has no relevance to the list and the politics of your country suck.)

    FYI…very good list and very interesting. I love lists like this. Keeps me coming back. Nice work. I was very fascinated as the writer keep asking me to see below. Well done my man/woman!

  • Doc

    Most prisoners dislike child and women abusers. The violent prisoners are in for having no regard for athourity and in many cases taking the law into their own hands.
    Although the ones in the list have mentall illnesses the majority of prisoners are in for many different reasons.
    These are the ones who often take it into their own hands to punish someone they dislike.
    Especially a “modell prisoner” (as described in the paper article above). Modell prisoners are often targeted for being too close to prison officers.
    Model Prisoner + Women abuser = hatered from inmates.

  • mrjimmy

    I live in Berkshire :/

  • 7raul7

    meh.

  • Jill

    Very interesting list. I would guess that the reasons for the attempts on Sutcliffe’s life is that he is a very famous murderer and some may feel it would be extra special to be the one who killed him. I wasn’t born at the time but I have heard about the sense of fear that gripped the country. Crazy as well how the police could’ve caught him previously, if not for Wearside Jack, who was indeed only caught in recent years, as mentioned by Posy above.

  • Phil

    I personally agree with Budgie (15). Bring back the death penalty. The government is always saying that the prisons are overcrowded and are thinking of building new ones at the taxpayers expense. My solution is to bring back the death penalty.

    We have so many techniques that guarantee correct identification of criminals such as DNA fingerprinting that killing an innocent man would be extremely rare or even impossible.

    • 34E

      I'd be curious as to what a fair, national consensus would say on this matter… democracy is hardly democratic these days.

      I'd say MOST people I talk to agree with the death penalty for serious rapists, murderers, and torturers… and NOT to spending $40 grand a year of our money keeping them alive and comfortable.

      • Sarah_29292

        apparently it costs more money to sentence someone to death than it does to keep them in prison for life, because there has to be so many appeals and what not, because if you gonna sentence someone to death you have to be really sure they actually deserve it. not sure how i feel about the death penalty really but i don’t think the mentally ill should be sentenced to death.

  • dsig

    In 1998, Charles Bronson took two Iraqi hijackers and another inmate hostage at Belmarsh prison in London. He insisted his hostages address him as “General” and told negotiators he would eat one of his victims quickly unless his demands were met. At one stage, Bronson demanded one of the Iraqis hit him “very hard” over the head with a metal tray. When the hostage refused, Bronson slashed his own shoulder six times with a razor blade. He later told staff: “I’m going to start snapping necks – I’m the number-one hostage taker.” He demanded a plane to take him to Cuba, two Uzi sub-machine guns, 5,000 rounds of ammunition, and an axe. In court, he said he was “as guilty as Adolf Hitler”, adding “I was on a mission of madness, but now I’m on a mission of peace and all I want to do now is go home and have a pint with my son.” Another seven years were added to his sentence. (wikipedia)

    fascinating guy. and a great film on him released last year

  • Rosie

    Charles Bronson’s picture scared me :D
    Love this list!
    Also: “”The Tories in my native city have compelled me to do this. They follow, persecute me wherever I go, and have entirely destroyed my peace of mind…” I plan to ue this as an excuse to assainate the Tories.
    Aha.

  • tarachowski

    @Budgie (15) – wow, that’s ignorant and insensitive!
    Loved this list. My stepmum is a guard in a high security prison and remembers one of the hostage situations pulled by Bronson – definitely not pretty, the guy certainly needed help.

  • deeeziner

    @Arsnl (24):

    Hi Arsnl–What are you up to? Thought I’d begin with a friendly hello, because I really don’t want to start up a “thing” with you on the subject of mental health and model inmates.

    My comment was intended to reflect my curiosity, (as well as other commenters) about the targeting of Sutcliffe by fellow inmates.

    You are right, I don’t know any of the details of the attacks, so I went to Google to try to find out a bit more. The MULTIPLE articles I looked up didn’t do much to enlighten me on the reasons.

    But I did learn that the man REFUSED mental treatment until 1993, at which time the court ordered treatment AGAINST his will. He had spent 13 years in custody without treatment.

    If you checked out the link I posted, you will see that it is a VERY recent article–the 18th of this month, so perhaps it is just an attempt to sensationalize something that is not ever going to happen.

    But still, would you be comfortable with a man who has self admittedly murdered 13 persons and nearly murdered another seven victims being released into YOUR locale?

    And finally, in the article I linked it states “He is effectively cured as long as he never stops taking his medication.”. Note the words “never stops taking his medication.”. That’s a big factor in his rehabilitation, and the safety of those around him.

    No, I do not feel that there is no hope or realism involved in the release back into society for the mentally ill. But is Sutcliffe one of those who should be given the opportunity to rejoin society?

    I, myself, think not. But that’s only my opinion. In my opinion if the man has been deemed rehabilitated then perhaps he should be sent to jail to serve penal time for the lives he took.

  • tarachowski

    @Phil (30) the whole point of this list is the fact that they were, in many ways and for whatever reason, mentally unbalanced. To murder them in for something which is beyond the realm of their control is barbaric. Absolutely lock them up, but at least attempt a rehabilitation. The sad fact is that many of these crimes would never have been committed if they had received the type of help and treatment they needed earlier. I personally know someone who is a paranoid schizophrenic and he has never hurt a fly – but if nobody had intervened when he became psychotic, who knows? Killing them would arguably be like punishing the individual for the failings of a society.

    • 34E

      The mental illnesses that deprive these people of their sense of guilt and morality and emapthy etc. is not curable. Also, not all schizophrenics have the capability to become violent to the point of rape and murder. It is unfortunate that they did not receive proper help when they hit their break, but it isn't fair to have society pay for them to stay alive when they have shown that they are capable of crimes of that magnitude. I have a good amount of experience with the mentally ill and your average schizophrenic would not be able to kill someone any more than you or I.

    • paget

      You are being a little too easy on theese people i think. Would you say the sane thing if you were living next to Dalmer or Manson? Do you think people like Manson can be helped. If so, it may be you who is dillusional. Some people are just this way as a matter of genetics. I am not saying we should not let them live….but not in our society. Once we discover them we should protect society as a whole. To not do so is irresponsible. At whatever cost to them, including death. I think perhaps you have not had to care for a large number of people in your life. Laws are established to protect people. If there was not cause to treat prisoners this way………look at those that escape and reoffend. Some people just can't be helped. The Kray's are actually a great example. The one is pscycotic, and the two of them basically spent thier days competing with eachother to see which one was more violent(watch the movie"The Kray's")Can these brothers be rehabilitated? Thier upbringing seemed quite normal,mom at home, dad dead, small neighbourhood hero types, proving themselves. And all the while thinking violent behavior is quite sane.

    Its interesting to hear that the Broadmoor Primary School is changing its name in an effort to break its association with the hospital.

    Very undisturbing

  • thisnamestaken

    @ thejesuslizard (25): This list is called “notable residents of Broadmoor Hospital”. Charles Manson and Jeffrey Dahmer never stayed at Broadmoor, hence, they are not featured in this list. Thank you.

      Saaarrrccaasssmmmm… it was missed.

    excellent list

  • Jack Deth

    Very good list, a great read for a lazy Sunday morning. Thankyou.

  • MasacruAlex

    Wow i just stumbled uponed and i scrolled fast , didn’t read the title or the search bar and i saw a few pics as i was going down , and judging by those people faces i said to myself those must be serial killers and i was right ,

    U can look at their faces and get an idea about how they are .

  • Arsnl

    @deeeziner (35): hey deeez. Sorry im always grouchy in the morning. I just wanted to say he will not be released in my town anytime soon because in the article it mentions the fact that he will be sent to a moderate security prison or whatever and some rehabilitation in the outside world. And i also kinda trust the docs in this since it is a higly mediatized incident. Usually docs get it wrong when the guy does something violent but not major. Then they release him to soon without proper analysis. I do think only the best docs were sent to check his case. Plus i was only talking in general terms- moderatly crazy people or people that just have lost their cool for a period of time. I dont think you or i have met any crazy serial killers.
    Also how can one serve a punishment for something he did while that person wasnt aware of what was happening.
    Ps i live in france and since the govt and president are right wingers there have been extremely long debates about these kind of things and about making prison terms longer about setting up cameras everywhere (kinda like in london) and frankly i dont know if this does any real good to society (i do enjoy giving the universal salute to them once in a while when nobody’s around). I dont like to think: these people are hopeless. Again im only speaking in general terms.

    • 34E

      Don't blame the doctors, blame the lack of funding.

  • MissMeggle

    To all the people complaining about this being a British/European focused list- Broadmoor Prison in in England, therefore the majority of prisoners are British. What else did you expect from this list really?

    • Steve

      I don’t think a single complaint has been genuine. All of them have been a parody of the usual calls of lists being too American/British/European.

  • Janelle

    I work in a rehab unit, and one of my patients was in broadmoor for 40 years! He confessed to having thought of killing a young woman, but never actually did it! I talk to him about it and he was next to one of the Kray brothers, they used to pass notes to each other having whole conversations, amazing stuff! Awesome list too!

  • Moonbeam

    @thisnamestaken (40): Maybe reread the comment in question. thejesuslizard goes on to say, “very good list and very interesting. I love lists like this. Keeps me coming back. Nice work.” He/she was clearly joking.

    @MissMeggle (45): Maybe you’re new here, as these posts stem from a running joke and also a continuing controversy here (see the comments on the Medal of Honor list). The post you refer to are attempt at sarcasm.

  • Arsnl

    @Moonbeam (53): i love it when you school other commenters here. And you do it so often. I bet you get a kick out of it :-)

  • tzopilotl

    …yuck. is this england’s answer to the american medal
    of honor list? they are certainly still paying the wages of empire in the lower echelons of their population.
    i hope america doesn’t have to do the same, somehow i
    think not, as we are not a small, cramped island nation
    rubbing by. why not send this list to british tourism
    and see what happens?
    i think the more punishing a society is towards its
    people, beginning with education and prisons, the more
    problems it has like this, as there is no way forgiveness
    can operate. this is one of the great strengths of
    the catholic church. read david small’s Stitches to
    see a successful emergence from a disadvantaged start orchestrated by an entire family.

    Bronson has got to be up there with the coolest guys ever though.

    its people like you that give americans a bad image, so shut the fuck up, England is a awesome country and full of great people, I’m american and to be honest I’m tired of hearing about america, i love hearing stuff like this list has to offer, so stop being ignorant……… but they most likely do drink tea.

    • 34E

      Americans give America a bad image, lol. No offense, but your country is full of retards who make their 11-year-olds drink meal replacement shakes and who don't know what Ontario is when they live in Buffalo.

      I personally support the Jesusland idea.

  • RedMan

    Talking about executing mentally ill people is a tough one for me to take a position on. Aren’t all serial killers in some way a little crazy? Anyone who gets pleasure from killing is in my mind a little bit nuts but some are worse off than others. Look at Pedro Lopez who killed hundreds and was released from prison because the longest prison term one can recieve is thirty years. His where abouts are unknown today. Oh also he got out early for good behaviour. IMO a man like that should be executed. Laws and politics are a complicated thing. Mostly though I am for the death penalty.

    • paget

      I'm guessiong Lopez is in Jarez now. No jail time there for murdering young women on thier way home.

  • Gina

    very interesting–i didnt even know about this hospital place but now i do :)

    @Arsnl (44):

    “I dont think you or i have met any crazy serial killers.”

  • Zig

    Interesting list, but Ian Brady died there I believe. He and girlfriend Myra Hindley were the notorious Moors Murderers who tortured and murdered five or more children (whilst making tape recordings of their dying screams for help) and buried their remains on the Yorkshire Moors.

    Evil bastards.

  • Clark88

    @MissMeggle (45): Wow, do you really not realize that these people are joking?

  • romerozombie

    Think this list is too foreign? Try living in any country other than the US and turn on the news. We never hear the end of your country. If you don’t like the variety on the site, write your own list.

  • CandJ

    interesting.
    btw the film ‘The Young Poisoner’s handbook’ I agree is very good,check it out,if you’ve never seen it.

  • snor

    Great list!

  • Fred

    Why is it pointed out that Napper was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome? Not only is an autism spectrum disorder completely negated by all the other things in the article (including the psychic break at age 12 as described), but it makes it sound as if Asperger’s syndrome (or any other disorder of this type) is a disorder which gives rise to violence or accompanies worse disorders. That’s simply not the case.

    Might as well have said “Napper was also diagnosed with being left-handed.”

    • 34E

      I agree, but I suppose it's as signficant as any of the other minor details… although, it would contribute to a lack of empathy, which would be a significant factor.

  • mom424

    Excellent list. Interesting and informative.

    @RedMan (66): I would say that serial killers all suffer from some mental defect or another. That is not to say that they are insane. Insanity defense requires that you not know that your actions are wrong or deemed by society to be so. An insane person who believes that he’s killing spies sent by the enemy is not the same as a serial killer who just doesn’t care that society thinks its wrong. Most serial killers kill because they enjoy it, not because they’re deluded into believing that they must.

  • Handrejka

    Zig, I’m not sure who you are thinking of but Ian Brady is still alive and in Ashworth, not Broadmoor. Hindley is dead though.

  • whathappened?

    Awesome list today :D and the comments section ain’t (that)bad either!

  • Sophia

    Fred, aspergers is associated with social-awkwardness and Napper in the press, just appeared an all-round creepy, awkward guy…but his awkwardness was so obvious that i think its was a necessity to mention that he had aspergers. I dont think there is a deliberate attempt to relate the disorder to the killings, just to the fact that tbh he didnt appear like he could have been the disgusting sadistic killer that the police were looking for because he was so introverted and awkward.

    As to y sutcliffe was atacked so much, well in the uk there are a few notorious killers who trancend generations and will always be remembered for being truly sadistic bastards and commiting the most horrific crimes. The moors murderers, ipswich killers, the west’s, shipman and most child killers will be remembered (unfortunately) for decades. Sutcliffe is probably the most notorious killer for the last 40 years, he literally terrorised the nation for years…i guess the american equivalent wd have been Ted Bundy. He was so feared and sick that they named him the Yorshire ripper after Jack the ripper. For that reason a generation of people remember him as probably the ‘sickest’ killer of recent times so if you were able to get to him, wouldn’t you attack him? It would be the equivalent of coming face to face with Bundy or Dahmer. On a more interesting note, i think if someone was to kill him they would become notorious, i guess famous through a very sick association so those who attacked him either did it for notoriety or because of his incredibly depraved crimes.

  • dreamer

    why isn’t Ian Brady on the list? but tell me 63 if your country IS the best then how come you never learned to spell country. it really makes you all look bad when you proclaim it to be the best place in the world and most of the world would disagree because of people like you loud mouth, gun crazy, aggressive pigs u should be ashamed you’re letting down your country……..oh and in Britain we all don’t sit around wearing top hat and drinking tea. but yes we enjoy tea maybe if you went and boiled your kettle and make your self a cup a real cup none of this teabag still in the cup with no sugar or milk crap and none of this fruity funny coloured tea either but a good strong cup of regular tea you would find its nice if done right anyway and I really think its funny that you laugh at as for being not as good as America when you live in a country that makes cheese in a can and incredibly large bags of crisps no offence to all Americans intended just the ones like that wanker.as for them all being sissies most of them are or were 6 KINDS OF FUCKING CRAZY.

  • FlameHorse

  • dreamer

    tophats and us even lol had to correct myself

  • get a clue

    Here’s a thought:
    Since there are about 190 countries in the world, no single top ten list can ever make everyone feel “included.”
    Therefore, if you read a top ten list that you feel doesn’t include your country, you should most definitely
    SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT IT.
    There.
    I feel better now.

  • Armodillotron

    I, for the life of me, don`t know why we keep these lowlifes alive. They claim to be “mentally ill,” but that`s nonsense. How can people who take pleasure in doing these sort of things, be mentally ill? They knew what they were doing. So Dr Shipman, who was once MY DOCTOR, and killed someone FIVE houses away from where I live, and from ACROSS THE ROAD from where I live, didn`t know what he was doing? Bullshit. If a dog kills someone it`s killed. We should do that to these shithouses.

    • 34E

      You obviously know nothing about mentall illness… you'd have to be mentally ill in order to torture, rape, and kill a child. I disagree that it should be used as a defense, but it IS an explanation. Not all mental illness is loop-de-loop schizo. About one in five Americans will go through a period of mental illness in their lifetime. Think of it the same way you think of physical disease. Some conditions are temporary, comparable to infections (a major depressive episode, for example), and others are lifelong chronic illnesses comparable to say MS or CP (e.g. schizophrenia and personality disorders). Schizophrenia is what most people think when they read about crazies, but I would not hesitate to say that all who actually take pleasure in their actions have antisocial PD, which means that they absolutely know what they are doing, but are still very much mentally ill.

  • Lysippos

  • General Tits Von Chodehoffen

  • posy

    Reading the comments has brought to mind another infamous killer who is I believe in another mental institution following his conviction. I’m talking about Dennis Nilsson. In summary he brought men home to his flat , killed them, and buried or flushed body parts down the toilet. I think he was caught after a plumber found some body parts in a drain. Interstingly it was in the early 8os, almost contemporaneous with Sutcliffe.

    To everyone who doesn’t realize,all of the commenters making cracks about this list being Euro/English centric. They are making a joke about how virulently anti-American so many of the commenters are on other lists. I love listverse but the comment section does get out of hand, I am assuming that the really nasty commenters are just a bunch of idiotic 12 year old using Daddy or Mommy’s computer but I fear that may not be the case.

  • Mimz

    By far my favorite list. I love mental asylums, and deranged killers…and this list was definitely satisfying as far as knowledge goes.

    Kenneth Erskine reminded me of Richard Ramirez.

    Great list!

  • Carole

    The definition of mental illness is much more complicated than a person not knowing what they are doing.

    Anyone who enjoys killing is mentally ill. Not one of these guys ever admits that what they did was wrong and some even enjoy bragging about their sick crimes.
    That doesn’t mean I think they should get off or get out of prison. Keep them there to protect society.

    To all those asking about Ian Brady, he is held at Ashworth Special Hospital in Merseyside and before that he was in Durham prison, not Broadmoor. I imagine that is why he was been excluded from the list.

  • wondersquid

  • JenP

    To anyone who suggested the death penalty as an alternative for these monsters: the “process” of capital punishment costs more than a life sentence, so money can’t be an issue with regard to these criminals. Of course, in some cases, it may be worth it.

    • 34E

      What are the numbers? Last I heard it is forty grand to keep an inmate in jail. Taxpayers' money. Regardless of cost, I'd rather pay to get these guys away from my loved ones for good – let's not risk escapes.

      We had this one guy escape from our forensics unit. He had gone out to a park, kidnapped a 12-year-old girl, showed up for his check-in (basically waving to the guard on camera while the girl, tied to him, was kept out of sight) and went on his merry way along with a rape kit, following abandoned train tracks… they caught him in a town 50km away. Thankfully, he hadn't done anything yet, but it's too damned easy. That could be your kid, your sister, your wife, your best friend. Guys like that don't get rehabilitated.

  • Mememe

    This list… kind of scared me.
    Because I have several cases of mental disorders in my family, ranging from schizophrenia to depression (an aunt, two uncles and my own mother…)
    In their case it was physical trauma (blunt to the head), war and repeated psychological trauma (nuns – no, seriously: nuns).
    Am I doomed to become a loony if I accidentally bump my head? Am I one already?

    • 34E

      Schizophrenia is not caused by bumps to the head, hon… don't worry! You may be genetically susceptible, but avoid taking drugs (they are a major cause of severe psychotic breaks) and keep tabs on your behaviour. If you do develop symptoms, starting your meds ASAP will make life a lot easier for ya.

      I wouldn't worry about the depression. Avoiding alcohol and marijuana is a good idea, as well as exercising regularly, but it doesn't tend to run in the family as much.

  • Todd Gak

    Boring list. *yawn*

  • Wow, good to see how open minded people are about mentally ill people “These fuckers should be killed”? What good would that do? If the supposedly mentally sound of the world think it’s ok to kill people, then what are the mentally ill supposed to think.

    My parents are both mental health nurses, I have a friend who is Schizophrenic and have been through the system myself for mild mental illness.

    Wake up guys. One in four people have a mental illness. They’re not all nutjobs and murderers. Not trying to stereotype but America seems to still follow the whole “straitjackets and sedation” line on mental illness … genius.

    A good friend of mine lives just 400 yards from Broadmoor. You drive past the gigantic walls to get to her house.
    I asked her whether it affected her, she said “No, at least I know where my nutters are.”
    As she pointed out, as we walk around shopping malls, sit on trains, pop into bars etc, we never know if we have brushed against a mass murderer. In fact, when you think about the number of strangers we deal with in our lives, the odds are that we have all talked to a killer up close and personal at some time.

    Ive met three of them. Sutcliffe, Erskin and Napper. They should all be killed, what a waste of taxpayers money, keeping not only alive, but they live in luxury, its like a Hotel Broadmoor not a Prison. The other prisoners only attack Sutcliffe because he is famous and a week old man, easy target. Erskin is a little pathetic weedy psychopath who killed old ladies. Napper is a monster, barking mad. They should not be kept alive, what a waste of money.
