Jacqueline Hill is stabbed to death by serial killer Peter Sutcliffe aka The Yorkshire Ripper in Alma Road, Headingley, Leeds, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom.

Hill was Sutcliffe's last known victim. "I pulled Miss Hill's clothes off, most of them. I had a screwdriver on me, I think it had a yellow handle and a bent blade. I stabbed her in her lungs. Her eyes were wide open and she seemed to be looking at me with an accusing stare. This shook me up a bit, I jabbed the screwdriver into her eye but they stayed open, and I felt worse than ever. I left her lying on her back with her feet towards the entrance. I think she was dead when I left."
