H2H 4. 161. Stephen Griffiths. The Crossbow Cannibal

From June of 2009 until May of 2010, a man in Bradford, England murdered three sex workers using a crossbow. Thought of as mild-mannered, somewhat controlling, and often peculiar, he was obsessed with serial killers, and in fact was a Phd Student using homicide for his thesis. He was brazen––killing, dismembering and yes, eating some of his victim’s flesh. Police had a difficult time finding clues that would ever lead to this serial killer—that is until the murder of his final victim is captured on closed circuit television. This is the story of Stephen Griffiths. The Crossbow Cannibal.
