Australia's 'Lesbian Vampire Killer' Tracey Wigginton To Be Released

Dubbed the “lesbian vampire killer” by the Australian press, Tracey Wigginton, who was serving a life sentence for the 1989 murder of Brisbane council worker Edward Baldock, who was 47 at the time, is set to be released within the next few weeks

Dubbed the “lesbian vampire killer” by the Australian press, Tracey Wigginton, who was serving a life sentence for the 1989 murder of Brisbane council worker Edward Baldock, who was 47 at the time, is set to be released within the next few weeks, according to the Australian.com.

Wigginton, who’s been in prison since her conviction in 1991, appealed to a parole board citing that she has a “chronic and debilitating back condition.” Barrister for Wigginton, John Fenton, argued that, "A woman who suffers from (these conditions) is highly unlikely to commit such a crime (as that on Baldock) again,” according to the Courier Mail.

When she was 24, Wigginton, her then girlfriend Lisa Ptachinski, and two other women were said to have lured Baldock into a car and transported him to a riverside park in West End, where he was stabbed 27 times, according to the Australian.

Wigginton earned the moniker the “lesbian vampire killer” when, during their own trials, they claimed that Wigginton held a hypnotic power over them and that she drank the victim’s blood due to her “need to feed.”
