Richard Huckle was arrested and found guilty of sexually abusing over 200 children and was serving time in prison when a fellow inmate strangled him and then was stabbed to death with a sharpened toothbrush. Huckle was serving 22 life sentences and would have died in prison for his heinous crimes. He is considered the worst pedophile in the history of Great Britain. Countless children were victimized by him in Britain and abroad. Huckle was accused of having sex with both boys and girls, with his youngest victim being a 6 month old girl. Sex beast Paul Fitzgerald, 29, is being probed by police over his murder.
Britain’s worst paedophile was strangled with a bandage and stabbed to death with a knife made from a toothbrush, it has been reported as more details of his death emerged.
Richard Huckle, who was serving 22 life terms for abusing almost 200 children abroad, was found slumped in his cell at the top security Full Sutton jail, in East Yorks, on Sunday.
The ex-English teacher, 33, had been killed with a makeshift knife carved from a toothbrush and strangled with a bandage, the BBC reported.
Huckle admitted 71 counts of attacking boys and girls with the youngest victim a six-month-old baby in a nappy in a Malaysian community.
He was jailed in June 2016, at the Old Bailey where the court heard that as a former member of a baptist church, he used the Christian community as a “stepping stone” for grooming children.
Huckle’s attacks took place over a nine-year period in the Asian country where he bragged to fellow paedos it was easier to get away with abusing kids. The nonce first went to Malaysia aged 18 on a teaching gap year where he began his abuse.
He even wrote a sick manual called Paedophiles and Poverty: Child Lover Guide and had a “Pedopoints” ledger where he awarded himself marks for the abuse of 191 girls and boys.
In online posts, Huckle wrote: “Impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.”
Offering advice to other like-minded people, he wrote: “If you really want to fully embrace child love, poverty is the way to go.”
He said middle-class children were protected “no-go areas” while the less privileged may be “ugly, ill-mannered and unhealthy”.
