Serial killer Peter Tobin, who buried two of his victims at a property in Margate, has died.

Tobin was serving three life sentences

He was taken from HMP Edinburgh to hospital on Wednesday after becoming unwell. He had been diagnosed with cancer in 2018. He died today (October 8).

He served a whole life order at HM Prison Edinburgh for the murders committed between 1991 and 2006. Police believe Tobin was responsible for the deaths of other young women and girls.

In 2007 he was sentenced to life with a minimum of twenty-one years for the rape and murder of Angelika Kluk in Glasgow in 2006.

Remains of two teenagers, Vicky Hamilton and Dinah McNicol,. who went missing in 1991 were subsequently found in the garden of his former home in Irvine Drive, Margate in 2007.

Tobin was convicted of the murder of Vicky Hamilton in December 2008, resulting in his minimum sentence being increased to 30 years, and of the murder of Dinah McNicol in December 2009, resulting in a whole life order.

The killer was in his mid-70s.


  1. i am with you on that eric , a waste of air gone forever, hopefully more of his sort will follow in agony.

  2. I’m pleased to say I’m not sad he is dead just wish it was at birth then those families of those he killed would not still be suffering, they will go. On grieving until the day they die, when anyone gets killed by another person and treated their bodies the way he did, even though he has been in prison he lived longer than his victims there is no justice, I hope that they cremate him in a waste burning incinerator so his ashes cannot be scattered with the ashes of good people not one born with evil through his whole being.

  3. Wonder how many more he killed? He very nearly killed two little girls in the early 1990’s-after assaulting them in his flat he stabbed one of them, put the gas on & left-all this while his five year old son who he took with him was there. Luckily both survived.
