Why are the records of murdered 7 year old Christine Butcher closed till 2047 ?
Unsolved murder of Christine Vivian Butcher (7 years) at Windsor, Berkshire, on 8 July 1951.
This record is closed
Closed For 74 years
Opening date: 01 January 2047
Was there a member of the royal family or friend of the royal family involved? Why would those files from a murder in 1951 be closed for so long?
Who is being protected? What is being covered up?
Boxer Sugar Ray Robinson, a 3-to-1 favourite, trained in the shadow of Windsor Castle.
A strange thing happened the day prior to the bout: a young girl named Christine Butcher, aged only seven years, went missing while venturing off to visit Robinson at his camp only 30 metres away, kicking off a feverish police search.
En route to the weigh-in on Windmill Street in London, the streets were so choked with people that Robinson’s Cadillac was literally pushing its way through the crowd. Traffic was stopped in all directions at Piccadilly Circus, with reports stating it was the biggest crowd of people to take to the streets of London since V Day — the day when the Allied powers celebrated victory over the Axis powers six years earlier. Robinson was a half-hour late to the weigh-in because of the traffic.
An A.P. report out of Windsor read: “Christine had a doll that she imagined looked like Sugar Ray. She set off yesterday to show the doll to the champion. No one has reported seeing her since.” It was little more than an afterthought among the more pressing news, like how much heavier than the champion Turpin would scale, but it would later become haunting.
As the two men were toiling inside the ring, an investigation was underway;
The body of young Christine Butcher had been found not far from Windsor and “a white man in a grey suit” was sought for questioning. Her murder kicked off six weeks of similar crimes.
She was murdered on Sunday 8th July 1951 and found on 10th July.
It’s interesting that Christine was on her way to meet Sugar Ray Robinson:
Robinson was a high-ranking mason, and was for a time in a relationship (some sites say married) to Mary Ann Degrimston, co-founder of the (CIA-linked) satanic Process Church, which famously interviewed Savile for the “Sex” issue of their magazine.
Degrimston later worked as an escort in London and may have been involved with the Profumo scandal.
Sugar Ray Robinson was a Prince Hall Freemason
The body of 7 yr-old Christine Butcher (who had been violated before and after her murder) was found in Stephen’s Field of Windsor Park
Stephen’s Field is in the grounds of the castle.
The Festival of Britain floats on their way to Stephen’s Field...In September 1951 at the time of the procession everyone in Windsor knew where it was because just two months earlier, on 10th July, the body of 7-year old Christine Butcher was found there. The papers were full of it. The crime was never solved.
The Windsor Forest Bowmen (Patron Prince Philip) give their location as St Stephen’s Field, Home Park.
They say that it is at the far end of Romney Lock Road, past the rugby club and cricket club, next to some very large trees.
Windsor Forest Bowmen
Windsor Forest Bowmen was formed in 1951 and was granted Royal Patronage with His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, accepting the appointment of Club Patron.
We are a target archery club catering for Recurve, Compound and Longbow. We also cater for traditional (hunter type) and barebow styles as some of the club members branch out into field archery. We enter winter and summer postal shoots as well as going to various competitions in the local area and sometimes further afield.
We are fortunate to have sole use of St Stephen’s Field, part of the Windsor Home Park Recreation Ground for our shooting activities; Windsor Castle providing a fitting backdrop.
Jimmy Savile was desperate to take part in the first Tour of Britain, organised as part of the Festival of Britain celebrations and sponsored by the Daily Express . A race of twelve stages covering 1,403 miles over 14 days, it would take riders from London to Brighton, along the south coast and into the West Country, up into Wales, the north-west and the Lake District, before arriving at its most northerly stop in Glasgow. From there, it would head back south to Newcastle, on down the eastern side of England and finish in London. The prize fund totalled a princely £1,000.
A place in the four-man team representing Yorkshire could only be secured with a strong performance in one of the major stage races leading up to the Tour. The inaugural Butlins Holiday Camps 7-Day race, which saw competitors racing between camps in the north, was significant not only because it was where Jimmy Savile earned his ride in the Tour of Britain but also as the moment he chose to unleash his brand of jack-the-lad showmanship on an unsuspecting public. ‘Even though I was nobody at the time nationally, I worked by instinct,’ is how he described it to me. ‘In the Butlins Race, he would get to the start dressed in a tuxedo,’ said Ken Russell some 60 years later. ‘And then he would arrange for somebody to come with a tray and mirror and a brushing comb.’ Doug Petty, a young bike builder, gave exactly the same account of Savile’s bizarre antics.
‘Oscar’ was invited to become a race commentator:
‘When the Daily Express stopped sponsoring the Tour of Britain, which would have been about 1954, I remember seeing him on television maybe a year or two afterwards. The BBC was showing Silverstone motor racing and who should be there but Jimmy Savile; it was sponsored by the Daily Express . I often think that’s what made him, really. I think the Daily Express really helped him, they kind of adopted him.’

St John the Baptist Newsletter Dec 2011 /Jan 2012 3/3
Savile had ties with Calderdale. He often used to visit St John’s Church, Cragg Vale, for which he raised thousands of pounds, and was an honorary church warden. He was a popular figure in the Calder Valley right up until his death. In the 1970s he had a caravan parked outside the Hinchliffe Arms Cragg Vale. [‘Savile acted ‘unacceptably’ with dead bodies in hospital mortuary, report claims, Halifax Courier, 26 June 2014]
In 1967 Savile became Honorary Churchwarden of St John in the Wilderness at Cragg Vale, despite the fact he had only come to the church to help fix a job for a vicar as reported in the Halifax Courier:
“I first came down here to help the church find a vicar and soon after was appointed church warden for my efforts.”
Who had asked Savile down to find a vicar in the first place? And who appointed him Honorary Churchwarden?
In 1960 Rev. David Bennett was ordained and the following year he joined the Victory Lodge in Halifax as a freemason, going on to become one of the most decorated Freemasons in the county of Nottingham in his later career
Having been appointed as ‘Priest in Charge’ of St John the Baptist in the Wilderness in 1967 Rev. Bennett was to eventually have a 25 year long working relationship with Jimmy Savile in youth support and development.
“Sir Jimmy began fund-raising there in 1967 when his friend, the Rev David Bennett, enlisted his help to raise £8,000 for a new vicarage. The veteran presenter returned regularly to lead 10-mile sponsored walks in aid of the church and other good causes in Calderdale until the late 1970s” (St John’s mourns for honorary church warden Sir Jimmy Savile Halifax Courier – 01 November 2011)
Sir Jimmy Savile used to stay in a caravan at nearby Cragg Vale but was never interviewed by police.
Calls for investigation into murder of girl, 13, who was dumped in a canal in 1994 just miles from where shamed Jimmy Savile used to take holidays
- Lindsay Jo Rimer was murdered in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire
- But the case remains unsolved after 19 years
- It has emerged that Savile would often holiday just miles from her home
Police have said they do not know Savile’s movements in November 1994
He made no public appearances that month and was not making programmes for the BBC.
Lindsay’s family lived at Lower Rough Head Farm, near Savile’s holiday spot before moving into Cambridge Street, Hebden Bridge, before her disappearance.
Savile was never interviewed by police, despite being a regular visitor to the area, and despite having ‘a police record’.
Officers had been deployed during Hebden Bridge’s traditional bonfire night celebration, on the basis that Lindsey might have met her killer at last years event, held two days before she vanished.

St John’s mourns for honorary church warden Sir Jimmy Savile
The Rev James Allison said he had attended a service there as recently as six months ago and would talk proudly of his honourary role.
“He never announced he was coming, I would just look up and there he’d be in all his glory, usually wearing a shellsuit and everything,” he said.
“He was lovely – a really nice man. We are very sad to have lost him. He was a good friend of the church.”
Sir Jimmy began fund-raising there in 1967 when his friend, the Rev David Bennett, enlisted his help to raise £8,000 for a new vicarage. The veteran presenter returned regularly to lead 10-mile sponsored walks in aid of the church and other good causes in Calderdale until the late 1970s.
His lengthy TV career had its roots in Calderdale, with one of his first stints on screen in the 1947 film A Boy, A Girl And A Bike, about a fictional cycling club based in Hebden Bridge.
The late Sir Jimmy Savile was an honourary warden at St John’s church, Cragg Vale, which he raised thousands of pounds for over the years. He is pictured outside the church on September 28, 1991.
Sir Jimmy, then a racing cyclist with Leeds Olympic Club, appeared as an extra alongside members of Halifax Road Racing Club.
Derek Browne, honorary president of the Halifax club, said: “This was possibly his first taste of being involved in show business.”

Any brother wishing to attend should contact the Lodge Secretary no later than 7 days prior to the meeting.
W. Brother David was born in London, and in due course received an MA from Cambridge. He completed his National Service as a sergeant in the RASC-Parachute Regiment. He attended the Wells Theological College, and was ordained in Wakefield Cathedral .
His first Ecclesiastical appointment was as curate of Halifax Parish Church
David spent much of his early working life involved in education in the West Riding of Yorkshire, moving to North Derbyshire, to County Durham, and Northumberland.
He became an Educational Inspector for Nottingham County Council, and appointed Chaplain to the Lord Mayor of Nottingham in 1988.
David was initiated into the Craft in 1961 into Victory Lodge and in due time became an active Provincial Officer has also been WM of Notts. Installed Masters and gained Provincial and Grand Ranks in Mark, Red Cross, Knights Templar, Allied Degrees. 30o Rose Croix, and past Z in Royal Arch
Last year was the 50th anniversary of David’s Ordination, and this year marks his 50th year in Freemasonry
As can be seen David has had a very active and distinguished career in Freemasonry and his dissertation on the Knights of Columba and Columbus should prove to be very interesting and enlightening.
CABINET minister Ken Clarke was dramatically dragged into the Jimmy Savile scandal yesterday.
It emerged that BBC pervert Savile was “given the keys” to Broadmoor secure hospital around 1988 — when Mr Clarke was Health Secretary.
Mr Clarke was last night forced to defend himself, saying: “I have no
recollection of ever having met Jimmy Savile and no recollection of these events.
“The Department of Health are now investigating to establish the facts.”

Such an unsavoury person even his 2 children have diss-owned him & so deluded with his version of Christianity have turned their backs & become christadelphians? or other, even moved travelled away.
His retirement created a full twin page local hero spread in the Nottingham post a few years ago, pals in high places!!!
I know he personally groomed a small girl he had his eye on in the church of a local family over a few years where he eventually made out she had fallen for him. he propergated a rumour they were a item and even his family thought he was going to leave his wife for her. “A total dreamer” leaving the girl with no where to turn to for help. as he held so much weight in the community and what was she but a small girl, horrified in the mess she found her self in. he was waiting for her to come of age to pounce the ponce.
his buddy in crime was Cannon pierce of the R-O-T Saint Marys church main street Radcliffe-o-trent whilst married carried affairs with impunity.
I personally remember a salivating pervy pedo jimmy savile visiting the Rushcliffe School W/B Notts. in approx 1974 where he had the command of a massive hall rammed with little children to talk too? he must have been so drunk on his good fortune that day.

Honor Backman and Johnnie Savile
23rd February 1974: Actress Honor Blackman lends support to the Liberal Party as she joins Johnnie Savile, brother of broadcaster Jimmy and candidate for Battersea North, London, on a canvassing tour of the constituency.
On one occasion Savile sent Johnnie away with Eager on a foreign trip with underprivileged children from a home in Manchester. Eager said Johnnie Savile turned up at the airport wearing a T-shirt with ‘I’m Jimmy Savile’s brother’ emblazoned on the front. They went to Mamaia in Romania. Although Eager claimed not to remember when the trip took place or the name of the Manchester children’s home, he did recall that the home was subsequently embroiled in a scandal.
In 2014, the Department of Education announced it was launching an inquiry into Jimmy Savile’s activities at schools and children’s homes.
Among the institutions listed was Broome House in Manchester. Ronald Hall, a former warden of Broome House, was Assistant Director of Manchester Social Services when he was arrested by Manchester detectives in 2001. He was jailed for 11 years for 21 counts of sexual and physical abuse. His deputy at Broome House, Ian Gray, was given a 14-year sentence for serious sexual offences. Soon after Education Secretary Michael Gove commissioned the inquiry, a former resident at Broome House told the Manchester Evening News 4 how Ronald Hall had driven him from the home and delivered him to Jimmy Savile at Piccadilly Station. He said Savile plied him with alcohol and he woke up on the floor of his flat in Salford. He also stated that Savile visited Broome House on a number of further occasions.

He always told me that when it came to the royal family he had taken the oath of omertà , which was apt given that he was prone to referring to himself as ‘the Godfather’. However, on this particular evening he’d already touched on his friendship with the Duke of Edinburgh and was just beginning to tell me a story about Earl Louis Mountbatten

Lord Louis was a great grandson of Queen Victoria and the uncle of Prince Philip (consort of Queen Elizabeth II). Mountbatten was also a promiscuous bisexual who was famously rumored to have had an affair with Edward VIII (who was Prince of Wales at the time) when he accompanied him on his Empire tours (see photo above).

Savile helps 60 Broadmoor patients to move out.
A new management team was established at Broadmoor last year by the then junior health minister, Mrs Edwina Currie (who knew that Sir Morrison as a “noted pederast).
But for the patients who remained, Savile used his trusted status at the hospital in Crowthorne, Berks, to organise day trips for patients to the Queen’s back garden at Windsor Great Park and aboard a luxury boat on the Thames.

HC Deb 11 July 1985 vol 82 cc533-4W 533W §
Mr. Peter Bruinvels asked the Secretary of State for Social Services
(1) if he will take steps to prevent patients at Broadmoor from being allowed out on visits; (2) why patients from Broadmoor were recently allowed to visit Windsor; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
Visits outside Broadmoor hospital and the other special hospitals are an important element in patient rehabilitation programmes. The visit to Windsor to which my hon. Friend refers took place in July 1984 without any complaint from anyone at the time. Decisions on patient outings or other visits are matters for the clinical judgment of responsible medical officers. In the case of restricted patients, absences from the hospital require the approval of my right hon. and learned Friend, the Home Secretary. (Leon Brittan – 1985)
Patients taking part in group outings are escorted continuously by nurses from the hospitals. I am quite satisfied that there is no unacceptable degree of risk to the public from such visits.

Sugar Ray Robinson and the Process Church
Let’s play 6 degrees of separation with Annie Besant, Charles Leadbetter, Charles Manson, Mary Ann MacLean, Mary Tyler Moore and Sugar Ray Robinson… the connections are diabetes, animal rights, cults and people who travel with an entourage.
“Sugar Ray Robinson was the pioneer of boxing’s bigger-than-life entourages, including a secretary, barber, masseur, voice coach, a coterie of trainers, beautiful women, a dwarf mascot and lifelong manager George Gainford. When Robinson returned to Paris in 1962—where he was a national hero—to get him to cross the seas the French had to promise to bring over his masseur, his hairdresser, a guy who whistled while he trained, and his trademark pink Cadillac.
The Process Church of the Final Judgement was founded by Mary Ann MacLean and Robert DeGrimston Moore. Several sources report her as having once been married to Sugar Ray Robinson

Roman Polanski ‘should not receive special treatment in child sex case’, judge hears
Oscar-winning director Roman Polanski should return to the US to be sentenced for child sexual abuse and not receive special treatment as a “wealthy celebrity”, prosecutors have said.
A judge in Los Angeles is considering whether the long-running case involving the French-Polish film-maker – who has spent nearly 40 years on the run – should be drawn to a close.
Polanski, now 83, pleaded guilty to having unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl at actor Jack Nicholson’s house but fled the US on the eve of sentencing in 1978.
Lawyers for the director say he is willing to return to America from France if he is assured he will not serve more jail time.
But prosecutor Michele Hanisee told a court hearing on Monday that Polanski was asking for “special treatment” and for the court to “completely abandon legal principles”.
“The People simply do not believe it is in the best interests of justice to give a wealthy celebrity – and that’s what Mr Polanski is – different treatment than any other fugitive from justice,” she said.
“If Mr Polanski returns, the People are confident he will get a fair hearing here in this court.”
Polanski’s lawyer Harland Braun said his client’s crime was “indefensible” but he fled at the time because he was “lied to” by the court about the sentence he would receive.
“This is a very unique case,” Mr Braun said.
“He is an 83-year-old man with a 40-year-old case that he wants to wrap up.”
Mr Braun told the court that the sentence at the time of Polanski’s offence was a maximum of two years in prison with 50% credit – meaning he would have spent 12 months in custody “at most”.
Polanski had already served 10-and-a-half months in custody in the US and Switzerland, he added.
Polanski fled the US after spending 42 days in an American jail when he feared a now-deceased judge would extend his sentence.
“He knows what he was promised,” Mr Braun said.
“We know he has served eight times what he was promised.”
The lawyer told the court the victim in the case said she wants “this thing over with”. He also called for a warrant issued for Polanski’s arrest to be dropped.
After hearing arguments from both lawyers, Judge Scott Gordon said he would issue a written ruling at a later date.
Savile told hospital staff he performed sex acts on corpses in Leeds mortuary
Jimmy Savile told hospital staff he interfered with patients’ corpses, taking grotesque photographs and stealing glass eyes for jewellery, over two decades at the mortuary of Leeds general infirmary.
The late Top of the Pops presenter had free access to the mortuary from the late 1970s to the mid-1990s, an official investigation has found, concluding that Savile’s interest in the deceased was “not within accepted boundaries“.
Savile was said to have been best friends with the chief mortician of Leeds general infirmary, who is now dead, and had regular unsupervised access to the mortuary from the late 70s until the mid-90s.

PRINCE IN SAVILE COVER-UP Daily Star Sunday 12-05-13, p6
Massive Cover-ups – Prince Philip
There are at least 27 D-Notices in place to prevent details of Philip’s sordid predilections getting into the public domain. The notices last for a staggering 100 years.
According to the Mirror:
” SECRET files about Prince Philip’s private life are to remain locked behind closed doors for 100 years.
Most confidential Cabinet documents relating to relating to the royals and government are covered by the “30-year rule”.
But at least 27 royal files in the vaults of the Public Records Office at Kew, West London and many of , are considered so delicate they are labelled: “Closed for 100 years“.
More than 10 concern astonishing MI5 and Scotland Yard reports on the Duke Of Edinburgh’s private life.
As an explosive new biography of the Queen hints that the Greek-born Prince was unfaithful to the Queen, we can reveal that Buckingham Palace courtiers and security chiefs were once so concerned about Philip’s non- royal activities that they ordered round-the-clock surveillance.
They feared the Royal Family would be compromised and that there would be a constitutional crisis if news leaked out of how the Prince was behaving.
He was known to be “letting his hair down” with celebrities of the day at weekly meetings of the Thursday Club above exclusive Wheeler’s Restaurant in Soho.
One senior detective, now retired, who was attached to the Prince’s protection team, said: “It’s true we had to report back on where we had been and who had been present.”
But he refused to discuss the Prince’s privateis not known what details of Prince Philip’s private life were made known to the Queen or the Privy Council. But it will not be until the years 2052 to 2060 that they will be released – if then.”
Jimmy Savile Takes Young Girl To Prince Philip in Buckingham Palace.
Another murdered girl is found on the grounds of a different royal family estate – Sandringham – the castle where convicted establishment paedophile Jeffrey Epstein visited and hunted.
Murdered girl found near royal stud farm
British police said that a young woman’s body was found in the forest at Sandringham and that they are treating it as a murder case.
Queen Elizabeth II and her family gathered in rural splendor to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s.
Sandringham has long been one of the queen’s favorite residences, especially during the holidays.
The royal family also typically enjoys horseback riding and shooting parties at Sandringham
Buckingham Palace officials are staying mum about the murder case.
It is one mile from the entrance to Sandringham House and half a mile from the Sandringham Stud where the Queen breeds racehorses.
Prince Philip normally leads shooting parties on the estate and has previously been seen with his gun in the field next to the wooded area.
An inquest into the death of Lithuanian teenager Alisa Dmitrijeva will take place more than two and a half years after her body was found on the Sandringham Estate
The last positive sighting of her was in Friar’s Street, King’s Lynn at 12.15am on Wednesday 31 August 2011, where she was seen in a green Lexus car with two men.
Despite extensive enquiries and tests, police have been unable to confirm exactly how or when Alisa died.
They are also appealing for anyone with information about her black LG GM360 phone which is also missing.
The last signal her phone gave out was at the nearby Sandringham estate.
Despite the inquest today the case of Alisa’s death does remain open
Prince Philip loves “blood-sports”
The now-frowned upon custom of a royal hunt was, at the time, a popular past-time amongst royals and wealthy
In 1961, Prince Philip went ahead with the hunt despite protests from British and Indian politicians.
On the same trip he is said to have killed a crocodile and six mountain sheep.
Critics of the Duke’s fondness for hunting claim he has shot at least 30,000 pheasants in Britain alone and has also killed deer, rabbit, wild duck, pigeon and partridge.
Visit: Paedophile Jeffrey Epstein was hosted by Prince Andrew at Sandringham,The Queen’s home in Norfolk
Jeffrey Epstein ‘kept a diary of his under-aged victims
The Duke of York’s billionaire paedophile friend kept a secret journal, described as “The Holy Grail” by lawyers, which listed his alleged under-aged victims and the celebrity guests he entertained at his Florida mansion.

The billionaire financier, who attended The Queen’s birthday party in 2000, was sentenced to 18 months in prison in 2008
Prince Andrew’s billionaire convicted paedophile friend, Jeffrey Epstein, given permission to land his private jet at RAF base for visit to Sandringham
The flight log of Epstein’s Gulfstream revealed it touched down at RAF Marham on December 7, 2000, before he was hosted by the Andrew at the Queen’s Norfolk residence.
Civil aviation authorities called the situation ‘unusual’.
He is alleged to have used his fleet of private aircraft to traffic under-aged girls around the world for sex.
Entries in the Gulfstream’s flight log reveal he regularly flew alone with Virginia Roberts, who has claimed she was used as a ‘sex slave’ by Epstein from the age of 15. Roberts was photographed with the Duke.
The Palace has declined to say, for example, why Andrew was in the company of a 17-year-old masseuse working for Epstein at Maxwell’s home.
The Palace also refuses to answer questions about Andrew’s friendship with Epstein, or confirm the several occasions the two men appear to have partied together.
Those reported encounters between Epstein and Andrew, some of which appear to be corroborated by flight logs for Epstein’s private planes, which have been reviewed by the Guardian, stretch back more than a decade.
They include parties at Windsor Castle and Sandringham, the Queen’s Norfolk estate,
an exclusive dinner in St Tropez and a holiday in Thailand…
Indeed, the Palace has never offered a public explanation for Andrew’s most controversial meeting with Epstein, which occurred in New York in 2011. That was two years after Epstein had been released from prison. He was, by then, a registered sex offender, and though some celebrities were still willing to be seen with him, he’d been abandoned by many of the more influential figures he previously called his friends.
SANDRINGHAM AND JEFFREY EPSTEIN
Let’s reveal millions of royal secrets
“It begs the question: what have they got to hide? Help us find out.”
Graham Smith, Republic’s CEO
Millions of secrets
Did you know the royals are more secretive than the CIA or MI5? That’s according to historians who have tried to uncover secrets held in the royal archives.
Millions of official papers, including letters to and from prime ministers and international figures, are locked away in Windsor Castle. Why? Because they’re documents held by the royal family, and instead of being transferred to the National Archive they have been retained by the royals and put in the Royal Archive.
That means the official record of Britain’s head of state – evidence of exactly what’s been going on behind closed doors for decades – is kept a closely guarded secret.
The Royal Archive, created in 1914, is treated by the royals as private and personal. Unlike the National Archive in Kew it is not subject to official regulations that allow widespread disclosure. Yet these are the official records of Britain’s head of state.
There is no systematic releasing of letters and documents under the 30 year rule, no access under Freedom of Information laws – there isn’t even a publicly accessible catalogue of the material the archive holds. None of the standards and rules applied to government documents are applied to the records of the Queen, her predecessors or her family. The history of the monarchy is hidden away from public gaze.
Not just hidden, but often destroyed. So determined the royals are to hide their secrets the King sent a courtier to Germany in 1945 to retrieve letters from the archives of relatives there. Credible reports suggest that the royals have since destroyed thousands of documents from the 1930s and 40s.
Myra Hindley exposed as a ‘practicing WITCH’ whose occult links lead to Jimmy Savile
30th July 2017
MOORS murderer Myra Hindley has been accused of being a practicing witch who worshipped the occult alongside Ian Brady while the duo carried out their evil crimes.
Erica Gregory – who has devoted years of her life investigating the Moors murders – believes they even formed a twisted “paedophile ring”.
she said: “I believe they went to the BBC studio regularly to make a fuss and try to get in with Savile.
“Alongside David Smith, Brady was selling photographs of children to make money at this time – I believe Savile could have been one of his customers.
“It is well known that Savile visited them both inside. I believe they were in a ring of some sort.”
It doesn’t stop there, though.

David Smith, 67, was chauffeur to Savile and other celebrities in 1980s

Brady letters will remain classified until 2051.
Sir Tony Hetherington, the DPP is dead, Cyril Smith andLeon Brittan are dead, as is Willie Whitelaw who had, while Home Secretary in 1980, allegedly blocked a police investigation into a Westminster paedophile ring.
However, former Met boss Sir David McNee is still with us.
Smith had been investigated by Lancashire police at least four times by then, going back to the Sixties. The investigations were all halted.
The politician, now Lord Steel, was made aware of the reports that Smith had sexually abused young boys in his hometown of Rochdale, Lancashire, in 1979.
But dismissed the allegations – claiming: ‘All he seems to have done is spanked a few bare bottoms’.

Victim Michael Roberts reveals his devil-worshipping stepdad Michael Horgan organised abuse

Paedophile MP Cyril Smith was in league with another appalling child sex abuser who set up satanic rituals and raped children as young as TWO.
Victim Michael Roberts, 40, today bravely puts aside his right to anonymity to tell for the first time how he was only six when he was sexually abused by 29-stone politician Smith.
Michael Horgan, who has also used the name Shaun O’Donnell, became known as the High Priest of Satan.
He organised outdoor “parties” for these activities on Saddleworth Moor, where child killers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley had buried their victims.
Youngsters from two to 13 were drugged, tortured and sexually abused during the satanic “ceremonies”.
He was jailed for 10 years and placed on the sex offenders’ register after he was found guilty of six sex abuse charges in 1992
The shock revelation over the satanist and MP’s friendship raises questions over any role Smith and Jimmy Savile may have played in Horgan’s paedo ring.
Horgan was also pals with Raymond Hewlett, the child rapist questioned in relation to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
