Yorkshire - (Gruesome Mess): Police investigating accused serial killer Stephen Griffiths' background are probing links to a damning criticism by former Art Review editor David Lee of a 2005 Rolf Harris portrait of the Queen.
The acclaimed critic was quoted by the BBC as saying the Harris painting is rubbish and that the Queen's face
'looks pretty gruesome.... like she's eaten one of her children and been sent to Broadmoor.'
Last week Bradford murder squad detectives found a 3ft by 2ft print of Harris' work in Griffiths' squalid Bradford bedsit.
Hanging next to it on the wall was a photo of Equatorial Guinea's own head of state President Teodoro Obiang, who has famously claimed he eats the testicles of executed prisoners in his oil-rich tinpot dictatorship.
Was this the inspiration that drove Griffiths to declare before Bradford Magistrates Court last week that he is the Crossbow Cannibal?
"Too early to tell yet," the Royal Freak Hospital's deviance expert Professor Einstein Flinstone commented today.
Peter Sutcliffe is 69.
