Murderer with ‘born to raise hell’ tattoo on his neck on the run from prison

A convicted murderer with a tattoo saying ‘born to raise hell’ on his neck is on the run from prison.

John Potter absconded from Sudbury open prison in Derbyshire yesterday, police said.

He was convicted of murder at Newcastle Crown Court in 2008 after admitting stabbing a dad-of-two to death in a frenzied attack during a drinking session.

Potter, of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, is now being hunted by police after going missing, Derbyshire Live reports.

He had been sentenced to life imprisonment and was told he must serve at least 12 and a half years before being eligible for parole.

The 52-year-old is described as a white, bald, clean shaven man with blue eyes.

He is 5ft 8ins tall and is of stocky build, according to Derbyshire Police.

Potter also has several tattoos, including pictures of a swallow, a devil and the words ‘Debbie’ and ‘Born to raise hell’ inked on his neck.

He also has a distinctive tattoo of a panther on his right hand.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to call Derbyshire Police on non-emergency number 101, quoting incident number 18000349613.

Alternatively, information can be passed on anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
