Paedophile who abused 200 young children is stabbed to death in prison




A British man who was jailed for committing almost 200 sex crimes against Malaysia children, has been stabbed to death in prison.

According to BBC News, the man Richard Huckle from Ashford, Kent, was found dead at Full Sutton Prison, after being attacked with a makeshift knife in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Huckle, 33, was given 22 consecutive life sentences after pleading guilty to 71 charges of sex abuse on children aged between six months and 12 years old.

The convicted paedophile who was found to have over 20,000 indecent pictures and videos of his sexual assaults – is believed to have carried out the attacks between 2006 and 2014.

Although it is not yet known why Huckle was stabbed, police investigating his death say they are treating it as suspicious.
