Police investigating serial killer Peter Tobin, pictured, have said he is in complete denial about his crimes.

Detective Superintendent David Swindle, of Strathclyde Police, who led the UK-wide investigation into the handyman murderer codenamed Operation Anagram, said Tobin, who used to live in Southsea and Leigh Park, will have killed others and had at least 40 aliases and 150 cars during his life.

During a press conference at Strathclyde Police headquarters he said: ‘Peter Tobin is in total denial of the crimes he’s convicted of. He didn’t commit these, he says, and he hasn’t done any other crimes.

Mr Swindle made the comments as the four-and-a-half-year investigation was being wound down.

Operation Anagram was launched in 2006 after Tobin murdered 23-year-old Polish student Angelika Kluk in Glasgow.

The following year, two more Tobin victims were discovered – Vicky Hamilton, 15, and Dinah McNicol, 18 – who were buried in the garden of his home in Margate, Kent.

Mr Swindle said: ‘Peter Tobin is totally evil. He has absolutely no respect for human life.’
