If Pedophile were a person, that would be Richard Huckle. Despite how heinous it is to victimize young kids, Richard Huckle spent years in Asia targeting and abusing youngsters from different poor communities.

The 33-year old former English teacher who was also a freelance photographer, was considered one of Britain’s worst unrepentant Pedophiles.

In 2016, after years of continuous assaults and abuses, Richard Huckle was charged to court and handed 22 life sentences at Full Sutton Prison in East Yorkshire for 71 charges of s*xual crimes relating to 21 youngsters.

The Assault Of Poor Kids

CNN stated that authorities believe that the Pedophile had r*ped almost 200 babies, toddlers, and children in his years of carrying out the assaults.

Huckle was mainly known to target children as young as six months and not older than 12 years.Sky News stated that he engaged in his atrocities from 2006 to 2014.

As a certified English Teacher and supposed Christian, parents and guardians in Malaysian communities trusted Richard Huckle to teach and build their children in the English Language.

But unknowingly to them, Richard planned to use their weakness against them.

Since he had the opportunity to bring the kids under his control and away from their parents with the pretense of educating them, Richard Huckle turned the kids to his s*x objects.

After committing 191 assaults over the years, Huckle tried to monetize his heinous acts to sell the footage and photos of each of his s*xual assaults online.

Besides making video recordings of his abuse, he also forced the kids to hold up signs to market his business.

Months after making money off the videos, he opened a blog where he updated his audience and also awarded ‘pedopoints’ to himself for the different types of child s*xual abuse.

Those abuses were fun to Richard. In one of his posts, he stated that it was easier to assault poor Asian kids than rich Western kids.

He wrote:

“If I were to transfer my skills learned from India and tried to use them in the West, I wouldn’t last month before I found myself in a cell.”

In his comment on one of his victims, he stated, “I’d hit the jackpot, a 3-year-old girl as loyal to me as my dog and nobody seemed to care.”

He also notably wrote a 60-page treatise titled, “Pedophiles and Poverty: Child Lover Guide.”

Richard Huckle’s Arrest

Years after the grotesque acts, authorities began to look into his case. At first, Police found an online platform that included a self-admitted number of victimized kids.

Later on, they unknowingly found a document of these victimized children while investigating a pedophile website that accommodated 9,000 members.

Upon getting documents that pointed at the irregularities of Richard Huckle, Police set out to arrest him.

While returning home for a Christmas break, the unsuspecting Pedophile was arrested at Gatwick Airport. In December 2014.

During investigations, The National Crime Agency found over 20,000 illicit and grotesque photos of the abuses on his cameras and computers.

Fox News stated that 1,117 of the files recovered from him depicted r*pe or abuse of children.

Amongst others, an encrypted pedophile manual, ready for publication, was also found on his laptop.

He would have uploaded it if not for the timely interference of the force.

He was charged to court, where he pled guilty to the 71 charges of s*xually abusing 23 children from poor Christian communities in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur.

Having found guilty, the judge declared 22 life sentences for Richard. He was also told that he would serve a minimum of 25 years behind bars.

The judge stated, ‘You have pleaded guilty to as many as 71 s*xual offenses.

It is very rare indeed that a judge has to sentence s*xual offending by one person on such a scale as this.

Relentlessly you preyed upon the very young- pre-pubescent vulnerable children from a minority ethnic community into which you ingratiated yourself. This was a prolonged campaign of r*pe of the children from a small community.

Richard Huckle was sent to Full Sutton, a maximum-security men’s prison, 11 miles east of York, which houses some of the most dangerous criminals the country has ever had to deal with.

Richard Huckle has placed in Category A session of the prison, which holds a maximum of 550 hardened criminals.

On October 13, 2019, Richard Huckle was found slumped in his cell. A source told the sun, ‘It looks like Huckle was stabbed to death with a makeshift blade.”

It’s not clear yet if the weapon has been found. Several investigations have been made towards the death of Richard Huckle, but the Police have not been conclusive on the inquiry.

Life In Prison

The Humberside Police said it was working closely with the authorities of the correctional facility to investigate the death of the Pedophile, which is being considered suspicious.

Authorities have stated that the death of an inmate with stab wounds is surely not natural.

Someone or a set of people must have planned to carry out the gruesome act.

While some people considered it cruel, many people think it is expected since his actions were considered generally unacceptable. More so, Inmates do not make life easy for Pedophiles like Richard Huckle.

In an investigation, Humberside Police Spokeswoman stated:

“We were called shortly after 12:30 PM reporting that a man had died at the prison.”

“Humberside Police are working closely with the Prison Service to investigate the death of an inmate and at this time we are treating the death as suspicious.”

Richard’s death also affected the case they were running against Pedophiles.

Before his confinement, they had found several criminalizing imagery from Richard’s computer.

However, a number of the files that contained the description remained inaccessible because Richard had encrypted them. With his death, the records became irretrievable.

His death was more painful to the team responsible for his case because they lost the lead that could have been used to identify the other pedophiles that worked with him.
