A row over claims a notorious lesbian vampire murderer was to be released from jail has been resolved – with the revelation that it was her co-accused lover who is to be set free.
Queensland Corrective Services have issued the clarification after it was reported by The Australian that notorious Tracey Wigginton was to be put back in society despite her “ongoing anger issues”.
Wigginton and her lover Lisa Ptaschinski made world headlines when they killed a council worker and drank his blood. More details here.
A Corrective Services spokeswoman this afternoon said the prisoner who had been approved for resettlement leave was Ptaschinski, Tracey Wigginton’s co-accused, and not Wigginton.
“To clarify further media inquiries, Lisa Ptaschinski has had her application for resettlement leave approved by the Queensland Parole Board,” the spokeswoman said.
“Under the resettlement leave program, she is initially allowed a maximum of 12 hours of leave every two months for six months.
“The prisoner Ptaschinski has served 17 years in prison after being sentenced for murder in February 1991.
“She was eligible to apply for parole in 2002. She is currently classified as low-risk.”
