Edinburgh Live reported that the Scottish Sun got their hands on documents confirming that Tobin was battling lung infection and vascular diseases. The reports initially claimed that his cause of death was “unascertained (pending investigations)”.

The family of Tobin’s victims were pleased to hear of his death. Michael Hamilton, the 72-year-old dad of Vicky Hamilton, who was killed by Tobin at 15, said,
“It’s what he deserved really. He should have suffered more pain and I’d have wanted it to go on longer. I wish he’d have lived a bit longer with all that pain.”
Tobin received a “pauper’s funeral”. It took place privately, and the total costs added up to less than £700.
