Britain's youngest female murderer dubbed ‘Devil’s Daughter’ who was just 12 when she killed could walk free in DAYS | The Sun

A KILLER who was dubbed the Devil's Daughter after she brutally murdered a stranger could walk free in a matter of days.

Sharon Carr was just 12 when she stabbed innocent Katie Rackliff to death in 1992.

Eighteen-year-old Katie had been walking home from a nightclub when Carr knifed her 32 times.

And now the killer, who has been in prison since she was locked up and sentenced to life in 1997, could soon walk free.

The 42-year-old, who is Britain's youngest female murderer, has now applied for parole, and the Board is reviewing it.

Three years ago, when Carr tried to get her prison restrictions eased, it was revealed she fascinated about killing an inmate.

The murderer, who is known as the Devil's Daughter, picked teenage hairdresser Katie at random on that horror night in June 1992.

She then stabbed her so ferociously police believed they were hunting a man.

Carr walked free until two years later she struck again – attacking another schoolgirl with a knife in Camberley, Surrey.

But while in a young offender's institute for the knife attack – where she tried to strangle two nurses – Carr began bragging about killing Katie.

Three years ago she launched a legal challenge, but was told she faced being locked up in a high-security unit indefinitely.

Speaking of this week's Parole Board's review, one source told the Mirror: “Carr’s crimes were terrifying and there have been signs in prison that she’s still a danger.

"She’s been in solitary confinement. No one will want to see her released.” 

The Parole Board said: “We can confirm the parole review has been referred to the Parole Board by the Secretary of State for Justice.

"Reviews are undertaken thoroughly and with extreme care. Protecting the public is our number one priority.”

When Carr last launched a legal battle it was revealed that she dreamed of killing another prisoner.

At the time, in 2020, High Court judge Mr Justice Julian Knowles wrote: “[Carr] had disclosed thoughts of wanting to murder another resident by splitting her head open with a flask and throwing her down the stairs to snap her neck.”

In his judgment, Mr Justice Julian Knowles ruled the public would be at risk if Carr was moved to softer surroundings.

He heard Carr tended to form “intense relationships with females that turned into violent fantasies when thwarted”.
