In the program “Living with a Serial Killer”, his ex-girlfriend, Kathy Hancock, confided on his history with the famous assassin.
It was in 2001 that the couple met for the first time. Kathy Hancock qualifies Stephen Griffiths as being an intelligent and particularly empathetic person. What gave rise to a beautiful love story which, however, quickly darkened. She confides that the ideal boyfriend mask was hiding a particularly disturbing personality. Indeed, Kathy Hancock claims that her ex-companion was manipulative besides being obsessed with serial killers. An obsession that would have brought him to study criminology.
Prince Charming quickly turned into a stalker
Kathy Hancock says the “crossbow cannibal” had committed these crimes only to attract attention and become famous.

Kathy Hancock also portrays Stephen Griffiths as being a violent and manipulative being.
Another Stephen Griffiths ex, Kathy Bolton, told police he stalked her for a long time even after their separation in 1998. Note that the couple had a child together. According to Kathy Bolton, it is the impact of this separation on his ego who showed Griffiths the way to murder.
