Detectives have questioned Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe about 17 unsolved attacks including a number of hammer attacks.
The incidents are believed to be similar to the crimes that the 70 year old serial killer, was convicted of in 1981.
Now police have made a surprise visit on him inside HMP Frankland, Durham - and he agreed to answer questions.
The West Yorkshire Police team is expected to return later this month to grill him further about all the assaults.
It follows a cold case review after a 2015 book, by a retired cop and investigative journalist, linked him to 23 unsolved murders, including a Playboy bunny girl.
Sutcliffe is believed to have been taken aback after the arrival of two plain-clothes officers and denied knowing anything about any other attacks.
It is the first time police have questioned him over the incidents which are said to bear similarities to the crimes for which he was jailed after his 1970s reign of terror when he wielded hammers, screwdrivers and knives.
The cases are thought to include that of Tracy Browne, 14, who was hit a number of times with a hammer in Silsden, West Yorks, in August 1975.
Tracy believes she survived because her attacker was disturbed by a car’s headlights in a country lane.
Police are also probing the 1974 case of Gloria Wood, 28 — hit with a claw hammer on a school playing field in Bradford by a man who offered to carry her bags.
Also among cases linked to Sutcliffe is that of 20 year old Maureen Lea, known as Mo, who was battered as she walked home from a pub in Leeds in October 1980 - just a year before Sutcliffe’s arrest.
