A monster who went by many names: James King, 31, hung himself in his UK prison cell, afraid that his cellmates would “sugar” him, a method of torture. King justifiably feared that the inmates, who despise pedophiles above all over men, had placed contracts on his life. Unsurprisingly, he took the cowards way out and hung himself first.
A judge described what King and co-defendants did as “some of the most depraved and grossly deviant behavior imaginable”. The monsters were guilty of the “most horrific abuse of a baby and very young children,” targeting infants, young children, and minors.
Although to look at him you might never suspect it, the former IT worker was a “monster in disguise,” guilty of the most “vile and depraved” child sex offenses authorities had ever seen. His crimes are unspeakable, guilty of filming himself raping a three-month-old baby. Videos like this were shared with a child sex abuse ring with “tentacles that go round the world.”

According to Birmingham Live, King “gained access to a baby in 2013 and boasted of repeatedly raping the boy from the age of three months. He filmed himself doing so between December 2013 and January 2014.”
It gets far worse, as two of the other men in the group took turns raping the infant and sharing the footage online. That video went around the globe, according to the Guardian.
Just four months into his 24-year prison sentence, King’s cellmate, Cona Ellis allegedly watched him die without trying to intervene. Ellis awoke to hear King making “gurgling noises” and did nothing. Only after King went unconscious did Ellis alert the prison guard.
Guards found Ellis covered in blood and wearing King’s watch. Not one but two suicide notes were found in his cell. The pedophile died two days later in the hospital and police ruled the death non-suspicious.
After his death, a fellow prisoner told a jury inquest that King feared he would be sugared.
From the Independent:
“Fellow prisoner John Denham told the jury inquest at Avon Coroners Court that inmates had been taking out ‘contracts’ to hurt King and had threatened to pour hot water on him or give him a ‘black eye or two.'”
King’s mother, Deborah Wyatt, confirmed that her son feared he would be sugared, which causes painful burns. Wyatt visited her son in prison and learned that he was verbally bullied. Another man convicted along with him had already been sugared and he believed the attack was “intended for him.”
King went by at least two other names, Robin Hollyson, and Robin Fallick – But there was no hiding from his crimes. The inquest determined that King was depressed and anxious after the news of his atrocities made worldwide press. Even so, the prison chaplain said he seemed to be more positive before his apparent suicide.
“…the prison chaplain said the 31-year-old had been more positive up until his death after he began bible classes and got a prison job.”
This story becomes more disturbing when you learn that King was not acting alone, but part of a ring of at least eight men taking part in a dark web sex ring. They would go to extraordinary lengths to gain access to babies, sometimes forming relationships with pregnant women and grooming them before their babies were born.
The last of the sex ring to face prison, Matthew Law, 50, was found guilty of conspiring to rape the baby in 2018.

The baby’s mother told the court she hoped the evildoers would face lifelong consequences.
“I hope their lives are ruined forever.”
She said the baby had no memory of what happened.
“The saving grace we have is that he will never know what happened to him and there are no long-lasting effects from the trauma he suffered,” she told the court.
In all, three UK victims were identified, including two four-year-old boys and the baby. After investigations, at least thirty other children were “safeguarded” by authorities. Thanks to The National Crime Agency, the men, who were “incredibly skilled” in their efforts to abuse children, were all convicted.
Graham Gardner, deputy director of investigations at the NCA, said:
“They don’t stand out as monsters, but they are monsters in disguise.”
“We rarely see criminal behavior involving the sexual abuse of children to this degree. This is serious organized crime at its worst.”
“The men involved in this group actively targeted families to facilitate the sexual abuse of their children, toddlers, and babies. The depravity of these men appeared to know no bounds and is without doubt as vile as we have seen.”
All of the men involved led outwardly respectable lives. One was even a youth football coach, but behind the scenes they were taking part in unimaginable horrors.
