Baby P’s murderous mother Tracey Connelly said she should “lose weight” as she won’t be given a new identity
Tracey Connelly has been denied a new identity and will have no police protection if she leaves prison after serving 13 years for the death of their toddler Peter
Child killer Tracey Connelly has been advised to “lose weight and dye her hair” when she is released from prison in a few weeks as she will not be given a new identity.
Baby P’s mother, who reportedly weighs nearly 20 stone after 13 years behind bars, has been advised to cover up her appearance by going on a crash diet and dying her hair.
She has been informed that she will be freed without police protection, despite fears of being attacked by vigilantes. reports the Daily Star.
A prison source said: “Tracey was furious when she heard the news.
“It is very rare to give prisoners a new identity. The bar is set extremely high and she has not crossed that threshold.
“Tracey didn’t qualify in 2013 and was told nothing had changed.
“The prison officials responsible for her release have told her the best thing she could do to avoid attention is to change her appearance by drastically losing weight and dying her hair.
“But she’s still quite a large woman, so major weight loss isn’t likely in the coming weeks.”
Connelly is being prepared for freedom by HMP Low Newton, County Durham, after the parole board ruled she posed no danger to the public, despite attempts by Justice Secretary Dominic Raab to block her release.
She is expected to be taken to a bail home that houses high-risk female offenders.
Connelly was originally jailed in 2009 for causing or allowing the death of her young son Peter.
Her then-partner Steven Barker and his brother Jason Owen were also convicted of the charges.
After news broke that she was to be released, Mr Raab called for a “major overhaul” of the parole board.
He described Connelly’s actions as “purely evil”.
Mr Raab said: “The decision to release her shows why the Parole Board needs a major overhaul, including a ministerial review of the most serious offenders, so that it serves and protects the public.”
