FACTFILE

 

Alan Taylor was the boyfriend of Julie Patterson, who had been murdered by cannibal Killer David Harker in 1998.

Following the death, where Harker cut the body up, the head and limbs were never found.

Alan Taylor was often to be found digging holes all around Darlington in an effort to find the missing body parts.

 

2006, on the day of the murder, Taylor left a hostel where he was staying and caught a taxi to Mr Morrison's house in Trafalgar Terrace, Darlington.
After drinking for several hours, Taylor strangled his friend, with his hands and then with a belt.

A few hours later he dialled 999 and told the operator,

 " I am very sorry, but I have killed someone".

 

When he was arrested he told police that he wanted to be sent to Wakefield Prison, where he believed Harker was a prisoner.

 

In court Psychiatrist Kim Fraser said the defendant had an abnormality of mind, including post-traumatic stress disorder, when he strangled Mr Morrison,

 

Tuesday 27th March 2007, At the Old Bailey, Taylor was sentenced to life, with a recommended minimum term of 13 years.
