Subject:Update on ritual abuse case in Ireland
Time:8:53 am.
My abusers are still in Dublin, house of horrors victim claims
Herald.ie

Jan 9 2009

DALKEY 'house of horrors' victim Cynthia Owen says the paedophiles who abused her are still living in Dublin.

In an emotional TV appearance, the woman who was impregnated by her father at the age of 10, said a paedophile ring operated in the capital in the 1970s.

And although her father is now dead, she says that up to eight other child abusers are still alive and at large.

Ms Owen last night outlined in graphic detail the extent of abuse that occurred before and after she gave birth to a baby that her mother then stabbed to death with a knitting needle.

"They died laughing at me and taunting me," Ms Owen said of her parents on The Late Late Show.

She outlined how her dreadful abuse started as a very young child in her own home.

Describing the house as "dirty and chaotic", she said it was a place that was "filled with terror".

"My father was a very cold man, a very uncaring man," she said while her mother was "mentally abusive", "very evil" and "very devious".


Drinking

"She sat up drinking all night and stayed in bed all day."

The 39-year-old said that she was first sexually abused by her father at the age of seven or eight.

"My father abused me first of all, then two other people in my family and then other people," she said.

On the first Monday of every month, she was brought to a building by her mother where she says she was sexually assaulted by a paedophile ring.

"It was planned and orchestrated. It was ritual abuse and it was a regular occurrence.

"My mother would take me and wait outside," she said.

The victim added that while no money was produced in the building, she believed that cash was exchanged afterwards.

"I was always drugged by my mother before being brought there.

"During those days I was a zombie, living in fear. You're on hyper-alert."

On another occasion, Ms Owen says she was abused by her father while her mother was in the same bedroom of their home.

"She [her mother] said 'you're the only one to complain'," Ms Owens said. "When I was young I didn't realise it was wrong. I thought all fathers did it."

11th May 2009


I am a social worker and I teach social workers. But if my own child wanted to become one, I would be very afraid. I realised that sad truth last week when Lord Laming, the Government's child protection 'guru', rebuked social workers for spending too much time filling in forms.

They do. But he largely invented that mountain of paperwork.

Subject:Paedophile ring victim faces more threats as car attacked
Time:11:11 am.
 8 December 2008
Evening News
Alan McEwan

A BMW car belonging to the victim of Edinburgh's worst paedophile ring has been vandalised with the word "grass".
Dana Fowley said she was shocked to discover thousands of pounds' worth of damage to the vehicle which was vandalised as it sat outside her home in the west of Edinburgh.

The attack was the latest in a series of threats against the 26-year-old, who was raped and abused along with her sister over a period of 12 years by family members and their friends.

Her home was also attacked by a gang of men wielding swords and hammers in December last year in an incident which was caught on CCTV cameras installed to protect her safety.

Woman revisits the 'Hell' of ritual abuse
By Ben Winslow
Deseret News
Wednesday, Dec. 10

She isn't Rachel Hopkins anymore.

Anne A Johnson Davis is shedding the moniker she used in a 1995 Deseret News story about her childhood as a victim of ritualistic Satanic abuse and speaking out in a memoir of her life. Davis, now a Lehi mother of three, is stepping into the spotlight again with the publication of her book "Hell Minus One."

"I have had enough healing and closure of my own, I feel I'm in a place where I really feel the call to share what I have to help others find courage," Davis said in an interview Wednesday.

Davis' story is so bizarre, it's hard to believe it actually happened — save for the fact that she has signed confessions from her mother and stepfather, a financial settlement and investigators from the Utah Attorney General's Office who vouched for her. From age 3 until she ran away at 17, she said she was sexually abused, tortured, bathed in blood and forced to hurt her siblings in Satanic rituals.

Subject:Mexican killed 8 women in satanic ritual
Time:5:29 pm.
30 October 2008
SBS World News Headline Stories

A Mexican convict extradited from the United States has confessed to killing eight women in a satanic ritual near the violent Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez.

Francisco Granados told a Mexican judge that he and two accomplices had taken drugs before killing the women and dumping their bodies in the irrigation channel of a cotton field. The bodies were found in 2001.

One of the killers had been in charge of making offerings to Satan, his testimony said.

Granados was detained three years ago in the United States, where he still has one year of a jail sentence remaining for other crimes.

Granados said he and his accomplices had also taken part in other killings and that more bodies had been secretly buried in one of their houses.

He asked for the victims' families to forgive him.

A Mexican judge has sentenced one of his suspected accomplices, Edgar Alvarez, to 26 years in jail.

Brazen attacks on women are rivalling the ongoing drug gang warfare in Ciudad Juarez in which more than 1,000 have died this year.

More than 400 women have died in violent crimes in the area, including mutilations and sex attacks, since 1993.

Subject:Art historian collects torture porn, boasts of torturing children
Time:10:48 am.
The Establishment paedophile: how a monster hid in high society
The Spectator
Charlotte Metcalf
9 July 2008

The five-year-old girl cowers naked and crying in a corner. She is so frightened that she urinates. One of the men in the room hits her repeatedly. The others laugh. Another man picks her up and throws her face down on the bed. Then the men rape her. She dies soon afterwards of atrocious injuries.

This is the scenario that the respected art historian and curator, Roger Took, boasted repeatedly about in internet ‘chat rooms’ to fellow paedophiles. In the chat rooms, Took relates how a Dutch man bought the child in Cambodia, kept her for a week and how Took was part of the group who enjoyed ‘splitting her apart’ one night. After Took was arrested last April, the police interviewed him in connection with the child’s murder but Took insisted it was mere fantasy and the police passed the case on to Interpol. Fantasy it could be, but the fact so many like-minded men laughed and masturbated over a helpless child’s torture, terror and death is chilling and profoundly disturbing.

Roger Took was sentenced this February to a minimum of four and a half years in prison as part of an indeterminate sentence for 17 other crimes relating to child abuse. They included molesting two of his step-granddaughters and the possession of 260 photographs, including 102 ‘Level 5s’, which mean they contain images of children being tortured or penetrated, including by animals. One photograph showed a penis entering the vagina of a baby. Many images showed small children shackled to chairs or bars, in obvious pain. The police recovered these images from Took’s laptop. There were, apparently, thousands more on his main computer but the hard drive had broken and police experts were unable to retrieve them. When police raided Took’s home, they found a locked case containing a large bundle of photographs of naked young Russian women, believed to be prostitutes, one having sex with Took, and clippings of children’s hair. 

Also on Took’s laptop were 742 chat logs of a sexual nature relating to children, adding up to over 1,500 pages. Took posed as ‘Dad of 2 Superkids’ in the chat rooms and, pretending they were his daughters, posted photographs of his step-granddaughters, Grace, aged nine, and Gillian, aged 11, comparing their vaginas and inviting others in the chat room to masturbate over the images. Judge Blacksell, presiding over the sentencing hearing, referred to the chat logs as ‘unrestrained filth and depravity of the worst type’.

Police in child sex ring inquiry

A major police inquiry is under way after a BBC investigation revealed a paedophile ring thought to be targeting schoolgirls in West Yorkshire.

One former victim said up to 50 girls, some as young as seven, were taken in vans to houses where they were forced to have sex, often with several men.

Subject:The cover-up of the organised sadistic abuse of Natascha Kampusch
Time:11:27 am.
Austrian child Natascha Kampusch was kidnapped at age 10 and held captive for eight years in the basement of the house of Wolfgang Priklopil before she escaped. Initially, police stated that Priklopil was operating alone. It has since emerged that Priklopil's parents have allegedly sexually abused Kampusch in the context of sadomasochistic child pornography, and had facilitated her "kidnap" by Priklopil. They allegedly knew where she was for the duration of her ordeal, despite their public pleas for her return.

It has since emerged that: 

- Police have been ordered not to follow up evidence that Kampusch had been sexually abused by multiple offenders whilst in captivity (see here
- Files and photographs of Kampusch were destroyed or hidden in police archives because senior politicians did not want a furore (see here)
- Police were banned from doing a thorough search of Priklopil's premises because it would be "too expensive' (see here

Meanwhile, confidential information about Kampusch has been leaked by the police to the media, including her statements to the effect that she "willingly" had sex with Priklopil. This material is clearly defamatory and designed to undermine Kampusch's credibility ahead of her mother's upcoming trial for her alleged complicity in Kampusch's kidnap and abuse.

Floggings and rape... the dark secret within the walls of Jersey's abuse orphanage
By BETH HALE and ARTHUR MARTIN
24th February 2008
Daily Mail

Prison-like on its hilltop above Jersey's east coast, Haut de la Garenne must have seemed a frightening prospect to the children sent to live there.

 And it seems that for many troubled youngsters, their fears were all too well founded.

 Today it has been modernised and refurbished, but thousands of young residents must have quaked as they approached its austere Victorian walls.

 The full extent of the unbearable acts children - many with special needs - reportedly had to endure until its closure as a home in the mid-Eighties is still not known.
