(BBC) — One of Britain’s worst paedophiles has been stabbed to death in prison, according to Sky sources.

Richard Huckle, known as the “gap year paedophile”, was found dead in his cell at Full Sutton prison in Yorkshire yesterday, the source said.

The 33-year-old freelance photographer, from Ashford in Kent, was handed 22 life sentences with a minimum term of 25 years in 2016 for abusing up to 200 children.

Richard Huckle was reportedly one of the UK’s worst paedophiles

He admitted an unprecedented number of offences against children aged between six months and 12 years from 2006 to 2014.

Huckle used religion and an English teaching qualification to gain access to children in an impoverished community in Malaysia where he raped babies, toddlers and children – some over a seven-year period.

A stream of pictures and videos of his rapes and assaults were shared with paedophiles worldwide on the dark web.

He even tried to make a business out of his horrific crimes by crowdfunding the release of the images.

He was working on a guide to help paedophiles abuse children and get away with it when he was arrested.

A Prison Service spokesman confirmed Huckle’s death, while a Humberside Police spokeswoman said an investigation has been launched.

She said: “We were called shortly after 12.30pm 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.”

Twenty-three children from poor Christian communities in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur were identified in 71 charges, although a “Pedopoints ledger” Huckle compiled indicated the real number of victims was much higher.

Huckle first visited Malaysia on a teaching gap year when he was 19 and later used an English teaching qualification and his professed Christianity to gain access to dozens of victims in poor communities there.

He was arrested by National Crime Agency officials who had been tipped off by Australian authorities as he arrived at Gatwick Airport on his way to spend Christmas with his family in 2014.

Investigators managed to recover more than 20,000 indecent images of children from Huckle’s computer, even though he refused to give them any passwords.

But they were unable to access some encrypted files, which are believed to contain “numerous” depraved images, as well as the names of a large number of unknown potential victims.

As well as the draft of Huckle’s paedophile manual, they found his “Pedopoints ledger” in which he awarded himself marks for acts of depravity with children.

  1. How can an animal be given life sentences? He should have been tortured over a long period of time. Then cut off his private’s then hung. I am glad he’s dead, but he should have suffered more.

  2. I hope whoever did it NEVER gets caught or charged, but he deserves the "bragging rights" so I'm sure he will sooner or later...I hope he stabbed him 200+ times (once for each victim) I would also hope he was viciously raped & assaulted just as many times before his last breath was taken!!!

    • A sick sub-human glob of freshly dropped chicken poop needs to have his perverted genitals cut off stuck up his ass and have it gauged up to his tonsils. Doused with kerosine ignited and right before his few last breathes put out and showered when salty rubbing alcohol and let him die in his own agonizing pain. Time enough to think about what he had done to deserve that kinda death... Sorry Bitch got off too easy I would say ....

  7. Prison justice. It would've been good if they were able to stab him at least 200 times with him still alive to feel each stab.

  9. The biggest pedophiles who are amongst the British Elite and Royal family still walk free and remain above the law. These people kill and abuse children and young people ritually. This guy is just a drop n the bucket.

    May death come slowly and painfully to all who destroy the lives of the innocent.
