The Silence Of The Lambs
April 4, 2012 by staff
The Silence Of The Lambs, Sllence of the Lambs rapist Leslie Cunliffe has arrived back in the UK after being booted out of Australia where he lived for 45 years. The British passport-holder moved to Australia in 1967 and has not set foot here since.
But, as he never applied for citizenship, the country used tough immigration laws to deport him when he was freed from a 12-year jail sentence.
Cunliffe, 63, was caged in 1999 after snatching a 21-year-old student at gunpoint and taking her to his makeshift dungeon, which cops likened to the one in the 1991 horror film starring Anthony Hopkins as evil cannibal Hannibal Lecter.
After raping her and tying a fake bomb around her neck, he forced her to make a £650,000 taped ransom demand to her family while he threatened: “Obey the rules or she gets whacked now.”
Her seven-hour ordeal only ended when a passer-by heard her screams and she later told police: “I thought he was going to mutilate me and I knew he was going to rape me.
“When it was all over I was left shivering uncontrollably. I’ve never felt so empty and cold in all my life, it was almost like a part of me had died then and there.
“The rape made me lose all hope of survival. I gave up all hope of living. I even tried to will myself to die.”
Former builder Cunliffe, who has fathered two children in Australia, was released from his sentence in April last year.
