Tillingham: Murderer Peter Tobin no longer in hospital after suspected heart attack
The murderer of a Tillingham teenager has been released from hospital less than 24 hours after he was alleged to have suffered a heart attack.
Convicted serial killer Peter Tobin is behind bars in Edinburgh for the murder of Dinah McNicol, 18, of Tillingham, who was abducted in 1991 and whose body was found in 2007.
He is also serving life sentences for killing Vicky Hamilton, 15, of Falkirk, and for the rape and murder of 23-year-old Polish student Angelika Kluk.
A Scottish newspaper claimed Tobin, 65, was rushed from his cell to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary yesterday afternoon after suffering from chest pains and collapsing, sparking suggestions he had suffered a heart attack.
A Scottish Prison Service spokesman today confirmed an inmate from Saughton Prison was taken to hospital yesterday, but said it was not policy to comment on individual prisoners.
He also indicated that the inmate was no longer in hospital this morning.
