A satanist double murderer said to be fascinated with knives, black magic and death is set to be released from prison more than 30 years after stabbing to women to death in the 1980s.
Paul Bostock was just 17 when he murdered 33-year-old dog walker Caroline Osborne in Aylestone Meadows, Leicester in July 1983.
Less than two years later, while visiting his victim’s grave, Bostock killed again, stabbing 21-year-old bride-to-be Amanda Weedon 39 times.
Despite being jailed for life, Leicester nurse Amanda’s family have been informed Bostock, now 53, is just days from being released from prison.
Amanda’s brother Martin Weedon told The Sun: ‘You can never fix the brain of a guy like this. If he comes out he could do it again.’

Police were tipped off about Bostock, a meat factory worker from Beaumont Leys, by his own grandmother.
He was sentenced to life in prison at the age of 19 for the two ferocious murders, which were said to have an element of sexual sadism.
Mr Weedon, 61, received a call from Victim Support on Wednesday telling him Bostock was due for release.
In recent years Bostock has been out on day release and has been working without a tag, a source told The Sun.

Martin Weedon is considering launching an appeal against Bostock’s release after warning: ‘If he comes out he could do it again’
Reports claim he has previously said he should never be released from prison, saying: ‘I am an animal who deserves to be locked away.’
But he made a recent plea for freedom during a a remote hearing at Leicester Crown Court from Sudbury Prison in Ashbourne, Derbyshire.
Martin Weedon had a written a victim impact statement which he hoped to read out in court – but the hearing was held virtually.
He is considering appealing to the Parole Board over its decision to release Bostock.
He said: ‘We don’t think he ever should be released. It will be horrendous and we feel utterly revulsed.’
The families are expecting to receive a report by Friday explaining the reasons his parole has been granted.
