Britain’s youngest female murderer who stabbed stranger to death age just 12 could be FREED in days: Parole Board considers releasing the ‘Devil’s Daughter’ after she was jailed for life for brutal 1992 killing
- Sharon Carr knifed 18-year-old Katie Rackliff 32 times back in June 1992
Britain’s youngest ever female murderer who stabbed a stranger to death when she was just 12-years-old could be freed in days, it has been reported.
Sharon Carr, dubbed the ‘Devil’s Daughter’, knifed 18-year-old Katie Rackliff 32 times in an unprovoked attack as the teenager walked home from a night out in June 1992.
The hairdresser’s murder went unsolved for two years as police officers hunted an adult man rather than the child.
It was only after she attacked another schoolgirl with a knife in Camberely, Surrey, and bragged about killing Katie while in a young offender institute that she was arrested.
Now more than 30 years after the murder, Carr is set to find out within days if she can be released.

A source told the Mirror: ‘Carr’s crimes were terrifying and there have been signs in prison that she’s still a danger. She’s been in solitary confinement. No one will want to see her released.’
A Parole Board spokesman confirmed to the paper that the parole review had been referred to by the Parole Board.
Two years after Katie’s murder she attacked another schoolgirl with a knife in Camberley, Surrey.
She was then sentenced to two years at Young Offenders’ institution Bullwood Hall, and began bragging to fellow prisoners about committing a murder.
In March 1997, police were called to the institute after Carr had tried to strangle two nurses and began bragging about killing Katie in March 1997.
She was later convicted over the murder and was sentenced to a life in prison with a minimum jail term of 14 years.
Two years ago she lost her bid to relax her jail regime after she plotted to split another inmate’s head open and throw her down a stair case.
High Court judge Mr Justice Julian Knowles wrote: ‘[Carr] had disclosed thoughts of wanting to murder another resident by splitting her head open with a flask and throwing her down the stairs to snap her neck.’
When she was sentenced, she was called an ‘extremely dangerous individual with Judge Mr Justice Scott Baker telling her: ‘It is apparent both from the brutal manner in which you mutilated her body and chilling entries in your diary, that killing, as you put it, turns you on.’

Other shocking diary entries from the killer spoke of the thrill she got from harming people.
One read: ‘I was born to be a murderer. Killing for me is a mass turn-on and it just makes me so high I never want to come down.
‘Every night I see the Devil in my dreams – sometimes even in my mirror, but I realise it was just me.’
A Parole Board spokesman told the Mirror: ‘We can confirm the parole review has been referred to the Parole Board by the Secretary of State for Justice.
‘Reviews are undertaken thoroughly and with extreme care. Protecting the public is our number one priority.’
