Wilma McCann - Yorkshire Ripper Victim

On 29th October 1975 Wilma McCann left her four children at home in her council house on Scott Hall Avenue and headed for Chapeltown for a night out.

It wasn't unusual for Wilma McCann to leave her children at home as her eldest child acted as babysitter.

At approximately 1.30am on the following morning, 30th October, an intoxicated Wilma McCann started to make her way home. Sadly, she never made it.
