Chilling. That may be the best way to describe the cavalier attitude expressed in a surveillance video showing a confessed serial killer showing off his weapon and flipping off the camera moments after killing a prostitute.
The video shows Stephen Griffiths, who calls himself the "Crossbow Cannibal," returning to his apartment after murdering his latest victim. After brandishing the murder weapon -- a crossbow -- in the hallway, he raises his middle finger to the camera:
London's Daily Mirror has posted the video of Griffiths in his apartment building on its website. The video was recorded minutes after he killed Suzanne Blamires, one of three prostitutes Griffiths confessed to killing, police said.
The video, some of which was obtained by CNN from the Daily Mirror, then shows the Bradford man carrying a sack down the stairs of his apartment building. The newspaper said it chose not to publish video showing Griffiths dragging Blamires' apparently dead body by the shoulders down the corridor to his apartment.
Police said they found human remains linked to his victims in the nearby River Aire.
Griffiths was sentenced December 21 to three terms of life in prison after pleading guilty to the murders of Blamires, 36; Susan Rushworth, 43; and Shelley Armitage, 31.
