WARNING – this post contains an extreme graphic description of a video found after interrupting a meeting of child sex offenders. NOT for the squeamish or faint hearted.
A while ago I stumbled across a paedophile ring (shortly after assisting in the collection of evidence that had lead to one of their number being convicted). My college Andrew had entered their property to retrieve some disks – so, they entered my property in order to have a meeting. The incident occurred at Brougham Road in Marsden, Colne Valley.
They were plotting the demise of both myself and Andrew, and they were also investing new members into the ring, as well as using my laptop to upload illegal material to their website. I managed to lock them out of the house for a short time, and view the material in the web cache on my laptop; unfortunately, I was not able to prevent them from re-entering the property and deleting the evidence. Therefore, no physical evidence is available, but my eye-witness account will no doubt coincide with other witness statements should I be required to give evidence. This occurred before the Savile inquiry – the evidence handed over to the police (according to CID) enabled them to greatly increase the size of their new database, and also to widen the scope of their ongoing inquiry.
I have reported this incident to the CID.
Here is a description of the second cache of evidence, which was deleted before we could turn it over to the police.
Firstly, I checked the browser history. I could see some peculiar looking headlines, along side normal looking posts at ‘royalmailchat.co.uk’. I had overheard the ring discussing using a ‘grid cipher’ – an image file with areas of transparency overlaid onto a screen-shot of a forum post or other innocent seeming URL to reveal the location of illegal material, which they had hidden among vast folders of images with similar graphical features in order to evade detection. The cipher itself was not available, but presumably the innocent looking posts were concealing hidden URL locations of obscene pornographic material. The odd-looking headlines I mentioned were similar to those found on adult sites, but with a nasty twist. I was unable to view the forum posts online, because the last user had logged out. I would never forget the page title – “Royal Mail Chat“.
Incidentally, royalmailchat.co.uk is hosted on the same IP address (presumably the same host) as jimdavidson.org.uk. Had the police searched this host back in 2011 when this occurred, I’m certain that Jim Davidson would now be in jail – however, it may be too late to investigate this now (November 2013).
After being unable to view the forum posts online, I navigated using ‘explorer’ to the folder where my browser caches web content. I was in luck – the folder was full of html and image files – and also a partial wmv video, which I was able to view. The contents disgusted me so much that I was forced to take a 10 second break. Firstly I looked at the web pages. There were posts on the forum, describing sexual encounters with children – however, these seemed quite lame and possibly not illegal. Then I came across one or two that did make me worried, because they contained images of children who had been abused, physically and sexually – there were closeups of wounds and bruising. Then I found the topic which was associated with the WMV video (that I had yet to watch). The posts contained still images from the video, along with captions such as one might find on a normal adult forum (although these were highly abusive). Because I had heard the ring discussing that the members must continually provide fresh material in order to retain membership, I believe that the abusers had made the video themselves.
Then I loaded the video. It depicted the abduction, rape and eventual murder of a young child (girl) of about 8-10 years old. In the first part, the child is seen standing on a street corner with a small suitcase and carry bag. A large car pulls up, and the child gets into the vehicle. The vehicle drives on a short way, and then stops, presumably to retrieve the hidden camera. In the next scene, the child is taken from the car into a van; I recognised this as a royal mail post van because the interior of the van was decked out with wooden boarding with hooks for the mail sacks. The child was placed inside a mail sack, and attached to the hooks. She was also tied hand and foot and gagged. The entire video from here onwards was filmed inside the van. In the next scene, plastic sheeting is placed across the floor of the van, and a wooden frame or strut is brought in. The child is tied to the frame and has her clothes cut or sliced with a what appears to be a stanley knife. At this point I decide to fast-forward the video, as one of the paedophiles is standing on my doorstep, kicking the door and shouting. I observe that the child is being raped and molested by several men. This is just before half way through the film. In the next part, we see tools are brought into the van. Hand tools and power tools are seen. Also, butchers implements (cleaver, meat hooks). Again I skip forward as the tools are being laid out – the person is looking through the letterbox.
The child’s gag is removed presumably to record her screams (I have the sound turned off). Nails are hammered into the child’s arms, legs, and torso. Large incisions are made along the child’s body. The video pauses whenever the child loses consciousness and resumes when she awakes. Men are seen penetrating the wounds sexually and again the child is raped. The child’s arm is sawn off and thrown aside. The child’s remaining hand and feet are sawn off. The child’s uterus is pulled out of her vagina with a steel hook. The skin of her face is pulled back over her head. The child is physically torn open by two men so that her ribs and intestines are visible. A third man rapes the child. This continues. I am unable to watch the end of the video due to medical reasons – the man has removed himself from outside the house and is heard talking on his mobile to a known associate. Unfortunately I have to unlock the door as I am worried about medical staff being unable to enter the property should an emergency occur – I am also forced to lie down in bed.
The identities of many of these individuals is known to me; I have disclosed these to the police, and will also share the information with relevant parties. Thanks for your patience.
