US Cannibal Paedophile Geoffrey Portway Jailed for 27 Years
Briton plotted to castrate, kill and eat children in his Massachusetts torture dungeon


A British man who pleaded guilty to plotting to kill, eat and torture children in the US has been sentenced to nearly 27 years in jail.
Geoffrey Portway, 40, pleaded guilty in May to conspiracy to kidnap a child as well as possessing and distributing child pornography.
When police raided his home in Massachusetts, they discovered a makeshift dungeon which contained a child-sized homemade coffin as well as a number of disposable scalpels, butchering kits and castration tools.
Portway used the online alias Longpip to discuss with other paedophiles their plans to kidnap, rape and eat children. Portway's attorney asked for a shorter sentence, saying his client did not touch or photograph any children and that his discussions were merely fantasies he never intended to act out.
But assistant US attorney Stacy Dawson Belf said that Portway would "become tired of people" engaged in online fantasy and had told others that he was serious about his intention to kill a child.
Belf also spoke about the soundproof dungeon he had created in his home as his instruments of torture.
"He called it a dungeon. He acknowledged it as a 'boy butcher basement'," said Belf.
"Why create a child-sized coffin? That coffin was built and designed for a purpose."
Portway was described as a man who had spent "most of his adult life" accumulating a large collection of indecent images of children.
Portway, originally of Worcester, was sentenced to a total of 26 years and eight months. He is expected to be deported back to the UK after serving his sentence.
His defence lawyer, Richard Sweeney, said there was no evidence that his client harmed any child.
He said: "Geoffrey lived in a fantasy world where he did live-action role playing, did things online unrelated to child porn and cannibalism. A lot of the chats he had were, in his mind, fantasy."
Court officials wrote in the sentencing paper: "Portway has [pleaded] guilty to some of the most vile and heinous crimes known to our society, namely participating in the sexual exploitation of young children through the possession and distribution of child pornography and soliciting the kidnapping of a child for the purpose of killing and consuming that child."
Two of the people Portway conspired with were Kansas resident Michael Arnett and Ronald Brown, who was jailed for 20 years in Florida in September for kidnapping children.
Brown sent Portway a photograph of a young boy with lines drawn on him to identify the "different cuts of meat".
Court filings stated that Portway used Skype and other methods to communicate with Arnett to trade child pornography and images of dead children.
The men were arrested as part of an investigation which started in 2010.

Man convicted of wanting to rape, eat kids

Man convicted of wanting to rape, eat kids

A man who US authorities say chatted online with other men about their mutual desire to kidnap, rape, kill and eat children is facing a long prison sentence.
Prosecutors plan to ask for a 27-year prison term for Geoffrey Portway of Worcester, Massachusetts, when he is sentenced on Tuesday in federal court. Portway is a British citizen who has lived in the US most of his life.
Authorities say they found a dungeon, homemade coffin, butchering kit and other tools in the basement of Portway's home.
In a sentencing memo filed in court, prosecutors say online chats recovered from Portway's computer show he solicited people for help to kidnap a child with the intent of raping, killing and eating the child.
Prosecutors and Portway's lawyer agreed to a sentencing range of 18 years to a little over 27 years in a plea agreement.
Portway's lawyer, Richard Sweeney, said he plans to argue for a sentence at the low end of the range. He argues that no one was touched or photographed by Portway.
"It is important to note, the defendant never engaged in inappropriate sexual conduct with a minor. There is no evidence that the defendant ever acted out any of his fantasies," Sweeney wrote in a sentencing memo.
But prosecutors say Portway, 40, appeared to be serious.
"In the chats, Portway becomes tired of people engaged in role play or fantasy, telling no less than 15 chat partners he is serious about wanting to kill and eat a child," Assistant US Attorney Stacy Dawson Belf wrote in a sentencing memo.
Portway was among dozens of people arrested in an international child porn investigation.

Paedophile With Cannibal Dungeon Jailed

A British paedophile who plotted to kidnap, rape and eat children has been sentenced to nearly 27 years in prison.
Geoffrey Portway discussed his vile fantasies online and even solicited people to help carry out his plan to snatch a child with the intention of raping, killing and eating them.
Police said that they found a dungeon, a home-made coffin and butchering kit at his home in Worcester, Massachusetts.
The 40-year-old, who used the online pseudonym "Longpig" - the cannibal name for human flesh - had even drawn lines on a photograph of a young boy showing the "different cuts of meat".
The mother of one child Portway and his accomplices targeted spoke of her terror after learning of their sick plans.
She told investigators: "My initial response, after hitting my knees and thanking God for his faithfulness and mercy in keeping my son safe, was one of fear and disgust.
"A mother is quick to play over in her mind what could have happened.
"Many nights I would wake up from a nightmare with a strong need to check to be sure my son really was sleeping peacefully in his bed - feeling so grateful that he was and at the same time feeling profound sadness and empathy for all of the parents whose children weren't."
Despite an appeal from Portway's lawyer, who claimed that because Portway had not touched or photographed children and therefore should be given a shorter sentence, a court ordered he serve 26 years and eight months in prison.
Police uncovered the torture chamber at Portway's home after a two-year investigation into a paedophile ring.
They found a staircase leading to a hidden, sound-proofed room containing a child-sized coffin, a steel cage, handcuffs, castration tools and a collection of knives.
Portway pleaded guilty to plotting to kidnap a child and to distributing and possessing child pornography.
Federal officials wrote in the sentencing papers: "Portway has pled guilty to some of the most vile and heinous crimes known to our society, namely participating in the sexual exploitation of young children through the possession and distribution of child pornography and soliciting the kidnapping of a child for the purpose of killing and consuming that child."
The sentencing papers also detailed how Portway had chatted online with another paedophile in Florida, Ronald Brown, who intended to kidnap children from his church and has already been convicted. It was he who sent Portway the meat cuts picture.
The pair discussed killing the boy, eating him and feeding any remains to alligators.
In a series of internet chats recovered by police, Portway discussed how he would use the dungeon to hold the children he kidnapped as he subjected them to sexual abuse before cannibalising them.
Bruce Foucart, Special Agent leading Boston's Homeland Security Investigations, said: "Mr Portway made his intentions explicitly clear in online conversations with depraved like-minded individuals.
"The sophisticated child torture chamber he built in his basement also clearly demonstrated his strong desires to ensnare a child victim.
"There is no doubt in my mind that given the right set of circumstances, Mr Portway would have acted on those perverse urges.
"Fortunately, as a result of today's significant sentence, he will never have an opportunity to pursue his sordid desires."
Portway was among dozens arrested in the investigation that began with the detention of another man in Massachusetts who has been jailed for 18 years.
He will be deported back to the UK after he has served his jail term.
