In 2016, he was given 22 life sentences after admitting 71 expenses of intercourse abuse of youngsters aged between six months and 12 years, between 2006 and 2014.

One of Britain's most prolific child sex offenders, Richard Huckle, has died three years into a life sentence for abusing Malaysian and Cambodian children, Britain's Ministry of Justice said on Monday, with media saying he had been stabbed to death.

Richard Huckle, 33, used to be stumbled on ineffective Sunday inside his cell at the Tubby Sutton Detention heart in North Yorkshire, per Sky News.

United Kingdom media reported that Huckle had been stabbed to death.

The news channel quoted sources as saying that Huckle was found dead under "suspicious circumstances" at the Full Sutton prison yesterday.

Who knows, maybe all the football talk infiltrating the Pope's responses will make him a Saints fan at the end of the day. Pope Francis , the 82-year-old head of the Catholic Church , made an important announcement on Twitter on Sunday.


Huckle even tried to make a business out of his horrific crimes by crowd-funding the release of the images and was compiling a paedophile's manual at the time of his arrest by the National Crime Agency.

In online posts, Huckle bragged that it was easier to target impoverished children in Malaysia than those from wealthy Western backgrounds.

He presented himself as a practising Christian and first visited Malaysia on a teaching gap year when he was 18 or 19.

Commenting on one of his victims, he boasted: "I'd hit the jackpot, a three-year-old girl as loyal to me as my dog and nobody seemed to care".

Investigators believe he would have attacked hundreds of more children had he not been caught in 2014 when Australian police uncovered a network of paedophiles on the "dark" web.

Humberside Police have launched an investigation into the incident after receiving reports of the death at around 12:30pm on October 13.
