No remorse: Sabine writes from prison

About two weeks ago, a user on the UK Column community discussion board posted the following letter from Sabine McNeill, who is currently serving a nine-year sentence for four counts of stalking and six violations of a restraining order. The letter, apparently written on 3 August, reads: Dear Friends & Supporters, 17 months I’ve survived…

Tracey Morris up to her old tricks

Since Hoaxtead Research moved from “daily come hell or high water” to “whenever something interesting happens” publication, this blog’s daily stats have declined from ~1,500 views to between 700 and 900. Thus we were surprised about a week ago to note a sudden spike—1,700 views in one day. And nearly 900 of those views zeroed…

Why is Angela in a tizzy about Carl Beech’s sentence?

Carl Beech, the convicted paedophile “formerly known as Nick” whose malicious fictions grabbed headlines, instigated two failed police investigations, and ultimately destroyed the lives and reputations of many innocent people, was convicted on Monday on 12 counts of perverting the course of justice, and one count of fraud. Yesterday, Beech was sentenced not only for…

Tom Dunn: Following Angie in all things

Saturday was Thomas Dunn’s birthday. By sheer coincidence it was also Adolf Hitler’s natal day, but of course that has nothing to do with Dunn. Err, not much to do with him. Dunn celebrated the day by gorging himself on his favourite breakfast comestibles, then taking to his bed to deliver a few “seig heils”…

Wedger’s failed court cases

Many thanks to the new commenter, Jammy Dodger, who posted a most interesting comment on our recent post, “Wedger’s lies: ‘Foxy’ appealed sentence, was denied“. We are reprinting the comment here, as we believe it may help to cast some light on Wedger’s police career. In 2010 Paul Robin Denton was jailed for 12 years,…

Carvath stalks Hampstead dad and child

Noted “schoolgirl porn” video inspector and self-described “investigative journalist” Richard Carvath has just released a disturbing video, titled “Teacher in Hampstead”. The video, which Carvath claims was filmed at Waterstone’s book shop in Hampstead, shows a blurry image from behind, of what looks like a man rocking his child in his arms, then tousling his…

Link between school arsonist and Hampstead hoax

Yesterday we wrote about Philip Day, who was found guilty this week of having pursued a campaign of harassment against teachers in a Cheshire school, which culminated in his setting fire to the school. One of the charges of which Day was found guilty related to his having also burned down a 700-year old house…

Weaponising lies: Brittan’s accusers went on to smear Sir Cliff

Many of our readers will no doubt have read yesterday’s Mail on Sunday article about Mark Williams-Thomas, described as a “self-promoting TV detective” who seems to take delight in “exposing” VIP sex abusers, most of whom have never been charged, let alone convicted. Following the success of the 2012 ITV documentary in which Williams-Thomas revealed…

Justice denied: False CSA claims rob survivors

An issue we’ve tried to hammer home again and again on this blog is that when people use the issue of child sexual abuse to further their own agenda, it hurts real survivors. We’ve made the point that dramatising imaginary “Satanic ritual abuse” cases rather than focussing on the very real and much more mundane…

On accepting allegations at face value

One problem we all face when presented with information online is very basic: how do do we distinguish fact from fiction? The question becomes especially difficult when the information validates our own biases. For example, over the past week we have heard a number of disturbing things about Wesley Hall. We’ve heard that he falsely…
