Children On Sinister List
A man allegedly found with child pornography and detailed lists of children including
their home addresses, phone numbers and schools, appeared in court yesterday.
During a special hearing in the Adelaide Magistrates Court-
brought about following an application from The Advertiser-
Robert John Walker was
formally charged with one count of possessing child pornography.
A police apprehension report contains allegations of documents being found in
Walker's house, which were labelled "Rape and Bondage" and "Bondage and Food Supply".
Walker, 42, of Athelstone, had previously been refused bail.
A bail refusal report says he told police "he had previous desires of eating the internal body parts of young girls".
"(He) also maintaned a detailed diary outlining lists of names, addresses and phone
numbers of young gilrs under the age of 10 years," a police apprehension report says.
The report, contained in the court file, says Walker's ex-wife allegedly
found several "computer disks, pornographic images, child pornographic images and
documents" in his wardrobe.
"Included (in the documents were) bondage and food supply contracts
detailing the removal of young girl's body parts for food,"
it is alleged in the apprehension report.
"(They) were labelled 'Rape and Bondage', 'Bondage and Food Supply'
and (had) authorisation letters to remove children from school
to carry out these acts."
The "contracts" were unsigned documents, for principals to release students to him,
and included a promise they would not go to the police.
Documents filed with the court and obtained by The Advertiser
that allegedly belong to Walker had "contratcs" to remove body parts of
young girls- aged between three and 14- including their eyes, sexual organs,
heart, lungs and brains.
Papers allege Walker said "he wrote and typed" out his fantasies
"to avoid carrying out these acts".
Police document's say Walker's ex-wife found the material
after the two broke up because he cheated on her.
"As she was cleaning (his) wardrobe she located a number of items
underneath it," papers say. She took them to Holden Hill police station.
The list named more than 60 people- primary school children,
pre-schoolers, babies and mothers.
Documents also allege police found two desktop computers,
14 floppy disks, a compact disk, sketch books,
children's underpants, a notebook and a phone book.
They say 750 childen's images were found,
with thousands more found after an investigation into Walker's email
addresses. Police said Walker posed a significant threat to the commmunity",
bail refusal papers show.
Magistrate Gary Gumpl yesterday ordered a psychological report.
Walker was placed in custody pending the report. He will reappear Monday.
