Psychotic bodybuilder who 'became obsessed with Batman's Joker' attacked innocent stranger with an axe
Dale Pipe, 20, asked 'Why so serious?' after stabbing victim 16 times
Had also posted on the internet praising the new violent Batman video game
Police have compared the attack to the shooting in Colorado last year
Twelve people died when a gunman opened fire on a midnight showing of the dark Knight Rises
A psychotic bodybuilder obsessed with Batman's arch nemesis the Joker has admitted carrying out a terrifying unprovoked axe attack on a stranger in a public gym.
Former chef Dale Pipe asked 'Why so serious?' - the phrase uttered by Heath Ledger's character in The Dark Knight - immediately after attacking a fellow leisure centre user.The deranged 20-year-old had armed himself with an axe as well as kitchen and craft knives, before targeting a 22-year-old man
at Belle Vue Leisure Centre in Consett, County Durham, in January.The victim, who was using a urinal when he was attacked, suffered 16 wounds to the head, neck and chest.
Pipe was overpowered by leisure centre staff who bundled him into a changing room toilet and called police.Meanwhile, Pipe, barricaded inside the toilet, used his mobile phone to post the chilling words: 'Why So Serious!!! Hahahahaha' in a macabre reference to the maniac Joker, who used a blade to lethal effect in the hit movie.
Weeks earlier, Pipe, who previously worked at the Derwent Manor Hotel, near Shotley Bridge, also revealed online he had completed the violent Batman computer game Arkham City and said it was '100 per cent the best game I've ever played'.
Police said the case had disturbing similarities to last summer's Colorado cinema massacre in the US when 24-year-old James Holmes shot dead 12 people and injured dozens more while dressed as the Joker.
Inspector Chris Davis, of Consett Police, told The Northern Echo that 'Why So Serious?' is: 'What the Joker says. If it not about the film what other connection could you make to it?
Details of the case are reminiscent of the mass-murder of 12 people in Colorado last summer by 24-year-old James Holmes, who told police he was the Joker.'
THE COLORADO MASSACRE
On July 20 2012 a mass shooting took place at a midnight showing of new Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado.
The gunman, believed to be James Eagan Holmes, threw tear gas into the crowd and opened fire.
Seventy people were shot or wounded in what is the deadliest shooting in the state.
Ten people died at the scene and two died later in hospital, including six-year-old Veronica Moser-Sullivan.
A 12-gauge Remington 870 Express Tactical shotgun was used.
Holes was apprehended behind the cinema, near his car, just before 1am.
According to reports he had died his hair red and called himself The Joker.
On November 16, 2012, the Aurora Victim Relief Fund announced each claimant will receive $220,000.
When asked about the Colorado shootings Insp Davis added: 'That would be my thoughts. Obviously, it bears comparisons to the American case, doesn’t it?
'If you look at Pipe’s Facebook page you will be aware of the references to Batman and his gaming.'
Appearing at Newcastle Crown Court, Pipe, of Thornfield Road, The Grove, Consett, admitted attempted murder as well as three charges of possessing an offensive weapon.
The court heard his mental condition is being assessed to see if it is appropriate for him to be sent to Rampton Secure Hospital, in Nottinghamshire, after sentencing on June 24.
His solicitor, Stephen Thornton said: 'Professor Don Grubin concluded he was highly psychotic at the time and remains so.'
Pipe, who appeared via videolink from Durham Prison, was remanded into custody.
Judge James Goss, Recorder of Newcastle, said: 'This is a case where the pressing matter is a proper investigation into his mental health.
'I am not in a position to take this case further today because significant medical investigation has to be undertaken.'
