Britain’s worst paedophile Richard Huckle was reportedly strangled with a guitar string and had condoms stuffed down his throat.
Richard Huckle died at HMP Full Sutton in Yorkshire on October 13 after also allegedly being stabbed by a makeshift blade.
It was reported that he was strangled in his own prison cell.
And is also reported the paedophile had condoms and biros stuffed down his throat.
“He wasn’t just stabbed. He was strangled with a guitar string,” a source told The Sun.
Huckle was severing 22 life sentences for sex attacks on nearly 200 children when he’d was killed.
Earlier this week, a 29-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murdering Huckle.
Humberside Police said officers say they have passed a file to prosecutors for consideration.
In a statement, the force said: “A 29-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the death of a man at HMP Full Sutton on October 13 2019.
“A file has been submitted to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and we are awaiting their decision regarding charges.”
Daily Star Online has contacted Humberside Police for further comment, and the Ministry of Justice declined to comment on an ongoing investigation.
Huckle, 33, admitted 71 counts of sex abuse against up to 200 children across Malaysia over nine years, some as young as six months.
The freelance photographer shared pictures and videos of his rapes and assaults – including one baby in a nappy – were shared with paedophiles worldwide through the now defunct deep web paedo website.
He 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.
Twenty-three children from poor Christian communities in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur were identified in 71 charges.
Huckle’s tally of abuse which he catalogued on a “PedoPoints” ledger was much higher – reaching the hundreds.
He was this year reported to be a sexual relationship behind bars with Grindr serial killer Stephen Port.
The sex beast first visited Malaysia on a teaching gap year when he was 19 and went on to groom more children posing as a respectable Christian English teacher and philanthropist.
He was arrested by National Crime Agency officials as he arrived at Gatwick Airport en route to spend Christmas with his family in 2014.
Officers seized Huckle’s encrypted laptop and, although he refused to hand over passwords, they managed to uncover 20,000 indecent pictures and videos which he shared on the deep web.
They found Huckle’s paedophile manual called Paedophiles And Poverty: Child Lover Guide and a “Pedopoints “ledger in which he awarded himself marks for the abuse of 191 girls and boys.
In online posts, Huckle bragged: “Impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.”
Offering advice to other like-minded people, he wrote: “If you really want to fully embrace child love, poverty is the way to go.”
He said middle-class children were protected “no-go areas” while the less privileged may be “ugly, ill-mannered and unhealthy”.
Commenting on one of his victims, he boasted: “I’d hit the jackpot, a 3yo girl as loyal to me as my dog and nobody seemed to care.”
Huckle crowd-funded the release of indecent images of the three-year-old girl in exchange for Bitcoins, achieving 105% of his target.
His parents were so horrified when he confessed his crimes that they begged police to take him away and made statements to support his prosecution.
Ahead of his sentencing, Huckle claimed to a psychiatrist that he wanted to put his “madness” behind him and settle down with a south Indian woman.
But the court was shown a posting from 2013 in which he outlined his plan to marry one of his victims in order to help him abuse more children.
Sentencing him in 2016, Judge Peter Rook QC said: “You are just 30-years-old, you are a UK national. You have had the benefit of education in this country.
“You say that in your youth you did not feel that you belonged in this country.
“You travelled to, and resided in Malaysia, actually migrating there in 2010 where you committed sexual offences of the utmost gravity.
“Relentlessly you preyed upon the very young, pre pubescent children. This was a prolonged campaign of rape of the children.
“One of the most aggravating features of this case is the fact you targeted and groomed children from an impoverished community. That community was particularly vulnerable because of its poverty.
“Your life revolved around your obsession. It is clear that had you not been arrested, you planned to continue with the same lifestyle.”
