Their bodies were found in the garden of his former home in Margate, Kent 17 years after their death.

In 2006 he raped and murdered Angelica Kluk.

He hid her body under the floor of a church in Glasgow.

He beat 23-year-old Angelika with a table leg, stabbing and raping her in the horrific attack – which took place in a church in Glasgow.

Officers racked up more than 1,500 hours of overtime before they caught Tobin for the 1991 murders of Vicky Hamilton and Dinah McNicol – with the subsequent charges leading to a life sentence.

Was Peter Tobin Bible John?

The parallels between Tobin and the notorious Sixties murderer known as Bible John have sparked such speculation that cops are seriously probing a possible link.

It was between February 1968 and October 1969 that Bible John savagely assaulted and murdered his three brunette victims – Patricia Docker, 25, Jemima McDonald, 32, and 29-year-old Helen Puttock – who had all been wearing black dresses.

All three were strangled with their own tights after being picked up by a handsome, smartly dressed, charismatic man at the city's Barrowland Ballroom.

The killer earned his nickname after a taxi driver who drove the murderer with his last victim remembered him muttering quotes from the Bible – sparking speculation that the killer was a religious nut.

One near-victim said she was positive that Tobin is the killer – but cops have ruled out any connection.

Recently, the father of one of Tobin's victim's admitted that he no longer believes that Tobin is the same person as Bible John.
