Milly Dowler's killer Levi Bellfield has renewed speculation about his involvement in the murders of Lin and Megan Russell in prison letters.

The murderer told a correspondent that 45-year-old Lin – beaten to death in a hammer attack of the day with his six-year-old daughter in 1996 – was his "type".

He also described how he enjoyed "the afternoon outdoors action" in his "addictive pastime" and had "ties" to the family's home county of Kent.

Bellfield, 51, wrote in prison letters – seen by the Sunday Mirror – that the murders were not his problem – "currently".

He used a hammer to beat two victims, Marsha McDonnell and Amélie Delagrange, to death in attacks in London in 2003 and 2004.

Michael Stone was convicted of the murder of Lin and Megan Russell in Chillenden in 2001.

Bellfield killed Milly Dowler, a 13-year-old Surrey schoolgirl in 2002 – about six years after the attack on the Russells.

Two years ago Bellfield denied claiming to have confessed to the Chillenden murders.

But when the caller asked him what type of woman the killer liked, Bellfield talked about the television blondes Holly Willoughby and Emily Atack before moving on to a description for Lin, according to The Mirror.

He wrote, "You mention the murders of Chillenden. I was also drawn to the older woman.

“Dark curly hair, 40-45, thin, of the horse type, outdoor dog walker, housewife type. I had something for this type of woman, again who has none.

In another letter, he talked about his addiction to sex and how his bouncers and taxis allowed him to carry out his "addictive pastime".

He also described in detail the county where Lin and Megan lived – Kent.

Bellfield – who is now called Yusuf Rahim and converted to Islam – was first linked to the 2011 Chillenden attacks when Stone's legal team attempted to quash his conviction by claiming that he was “much more likely” to be the killer.

In 2017, rapist of Frankland prison inmates Richard Baker wrote to Stone's lawyers alleging that Bellfield had confessed.

All this was refused.

Regarding Russell's murders, Bellfield had an alibi accepted by the police.

Her ex-partner Johanna Collings, 48, told them he was with her in Windsor to celebrate her birthday.

Bellfield's crimes were dramatized in the television series Manhunt, with Martin Clunes, broadcast in January.

A spokesperson for Scotland Yard said that an investigation into the other alleged Bellfield crimes had been closed in 2016 "because there was no evidence."
