    THE BLACK PANTHER Donald Nielson.

    In the late sixties, early and early to mid seventies
    Post-Offices in the North of England especially were
    on high alert following the murders of three sub post masters
    during armed robberies carried out during the night.

    The men:-

    Donald Skepper Harrogate North Yorkshire.

    Derek Astin, in Higher Baxenden Lancashire.

    Sidney Grayland, Langley West Midlands.

    The same culprit Donald Nielson was also responsible
    for some additional 400 burglaries during a high profile
    career which lasted ten years.

    The killer was always dressed in black and wore a ski-mask
    of sorts during the robberies.

    He was known to be extremely fit, carried guns, and ran
    across country after the robberies and shootings.

    He became known as 'The Black Panther' following witness
    reports of his appearance, dark clothing and a powerful physique.

    In 1975 a Young Heiress 17 year old Leslie Whittle was kidnapped
    during the night from her home in Shropshire.


    Nielsen taunted the Police and her family with various
    tape recorded demands left in telephone boxes etc.

    A passing of 50,000..00 demanded by Nielsen for her release went
    wrong and he hurled her from an underground sewer point with a
    wire cable around her neck, killing the poor girl.

    She had been captive for several days in the sewers.

    Nielson was only caught by accident, two Policemen saw
    him walking the street at night with a large hold-hall.
    I forget the exact details but I'm quite sure he shot at them
    and hi-jacked their car.

    There was a scuffle/fight, a member of the public assisted
    in his capture etc.

    There was a secret room of some sort in the attic of his home
    and all sorts of incriminating evidence against him was found.

    He was sentenced to life.

    He appealed against his sentence a few years ago;-

    The Judge ruled he should never be released from prison.

    Nielson died on Sunday after being taken from his cell in a
    Norwich Prison to Hospital.

    The only sad thing about that whole case was that they didn't string the fucker up in a sewer alive, and let the rats eat him.

    Good fucking riddance and rot in hell.

    ^ One was a dictator, one was a dickhead, and one was a dick taker.
    No coincidence.

    Have you got the right George Michael? The one that shags tramps in the back of a transit is still alive AFAIK.

    I remember this case very well - he put a tent up over the manhole cover. At the same time my mate's younger brother, Gary Shields, was murdered and horrifically mutilated at Knott's Flats, overlooking the mouth of the River Tyne. The fear in the community was palpable at that time.

    I went to visit the manhole cover which covered over where Lesley Whittle stayed.

    She was either found in Stoke or i was flogged a duff.

    I don't know the link between Viv Graham and Gary Shields. They caught his murderer after a month or so. Gary would have been around 7 years old when he was killed. I only found out about the mutilation years later - it was something not spoken about.

    Edited - just read that link - fuk me seems they never got the guy. I guess parents/teachers just told us stuff to stop us worrying. I do remember we always had to walk home from school in at least pairs (Knott's Flats was about 700 metres from my Infant/Junior School) for ages. Rumours of 'dirty old men' hanging around went on for years.

    The disgusting pig was also a rapist. He raped the mother of a friend of mine during one of his burglaries. He should have been hanged.

    the article is more about gary and the subsequent court cases / acquittals. Reads like something by David Peace.

    Funnily enough, just opposite Knott's Flats on Tynemouth Road is the Fisherman's Mission where a certain Peter Sutcliffe once stayed. Those that think Peter Sutcliffe didn't act alone (I believe there is evidence to prove that he couldn't have been present at at least two of the murders for which he was convicted) believe that Sutcliffe met his 'accomplice' at this mission.

    It worked for the bloke who pretends to be Paul McCartney.

    The George Michael replacement will have it easier. He can go on stage and sing like crap and blame it on the pneumonia damaging his vocal chords.

    Er, definitely not dead.

    Not up for shagging tramps at the moment though, either, I would think.

    They should have let him share a cell with his namesake Leslie Nielson.
