YORKSHIRE, England – A convicted child rapist, who bragged about sexually abusing nearly 200 children ages 6 months old to 9-years-old was stabbed to death while in prison, prison officials said.
Richard Huckle, 33, bragged about the abuse of Malaysian children, saying that, “impoverished kids were easier to seduce”.Huckle was working as an English teacher in Malaysia during the time he reportedly committed his crimes. Huckle was serving 22 life sentences beginning 2016, after pleading guilty to 71 sex abuse charges for crimes committed from 2006 and 2014.
Huckle awarded himself “pedopoints” for each time he abused the 191 children, according to his points. In addition, images of the abuse was sold on the dark web. During a search of his electronic devices, authorities found over 20,000 lewd images, 1,000 showing Hucl;e engaged in raping children who he was caring for. An investigation into the abuse began when authorities located the website and shut it down after saving user information.
