Online paedophile had horrific rape and murder film in library of depraved child abuse images
16:00, 8 May 2015
Daniel Fisher, 45, was jailed for three years after a court heard harrowing details of his collection of more than 15,000 illegal pictures
An online paedophile had a snuff film showing the rape and murder of a mother and her infant child in his collection of sickening images.
The video shocked a police examiner with 20 years’ experience of analysing such material who said it was the worst image he had ever seen.
Obsessed Daniel Fisher, 45, had a library of more than 16,000 depraved child abuse pictures and videos – some of which he shared with others on the internet.
Harrowing details of the images – many too graphic and horrifying to be reported – were read out at Teesside Crown Court today.
Prosecutor Harry Hadfield said Fisher deliberately and systemically searched for distressing images of abuse against a large number of vulnerable victims.
He gave examples of the movies and told how one horrific clip featured violence, sadism and torture against a two-year-old victim.
The pictures were found after Fisher’s computer tower and hard drives were seized at his home on November 21, 2013.
In total, he had 16,410 indecent photographs of children including 1,280 at the worst levels.
He also had 57 extreme pornographic images and nine prohibited images of “imaginary children”.
He made some images available to others, using a file-sharing program to allow other computer users to access them.
He had a folder dedicated to child abuse images containing 3,711 files, and accepted 10,761 requests to share them between September and November 2013.
The video of the killing was not shared.
He also had a Facebook pictures folder containing 12 indecent pictures of children marked “get your files here”.
When interviewed by police, he confessed to accessing child abuse images for 18 months.
He denied seeking out images of very young children, just those of teenagers.
He said he would download them, watch them then delete them, saying it was “all his own fault, he should have known better”.
Asked about the snuff movie, he said was not “into stuff like that” and denied seeing it, but accepted he must have downloaded it.
He told how he set his computer to download material automatically and he came across “weird stuff”.
Fisher, formerly of Westerdale Road, Berwick Hills, Middlesbrough, admitted four charges of distributing and four of making indecent photographs of children, one count of possessing an extreme pornographic image and one of possessing prohibited images of children – his first offences.
Rupert Doswell, defending, said Fisher’s computer downloaded images “rather indiscriminately” and he did not specifically look for the worst ones.
He said the vast majority of the pictures were in the least serious category.
Fisher admitted he had a problem or “obsession” and an attraction to children, and he was relieved to be arrested and have his collection discovered.
“He’s not beyond hope of completing courses and being rehabilitated,” added Mr Doswell.
Judge Tony Briggs told Fisher: “It appears that for a significant period of time you’ve been downloading pornographic images of the greatest gravity.
“You’re obviously not involved in the production of these images in the primary sense, but that said, the images are vile and disgusting.
“There are a large number, all of them disturbing, all of them likely to have involved severe distress, upset, pain and damage to the unfortunate children required to undergo that particular activity.
“Custody is inevitable and the sentence has to be a severe one.
“There are signs that you do recognise the enormity of your conduct and hopefully that’s some hope for the future.”
Fisher was jailed for three years, was given a sexual harm prevention order and will be on the sex offenders’ register, both indefinitely.
Analyst who viewed snuff film on shock at seeing ‘most horrific’ image of career
Ray Savage said the video showing the rape and murder of a mother and her child was ‘stomach-churning’
A forensic computer analyst has spoken of his horror when he viewed the snuff film found in Daniel Fisher’s collection of child abuse images.
Ray Savage, who examines computer material for Cleveland Police, told the Gazette as Fisher was jailed for three years today: “No question, it was quite stomach-churning.
“It’s certainly the most horrific image I’ve seen in all my experience as a forensic examiner. I’ve been doing this since 1995.
“And certainly my two colleagues who have been with me for just about the same length of time, it’s the worst they also had ever seen.
“This is a movie probably from the old Eastern Bloc. It’s not local and it doesn’t involve people here.”
He referred to it as a “snuff movie”, adding: “A snuff movie usually consists of a person being tortured or sexually abused and who is killed either before, during or after the act.”
He said he had passed on the image to the National Crime Agency’s CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) Command.
A National Crime Agency spokesman said: “We don’t as a matter of course confirm or deny investigations, nor discuss intelligence details.
“However, reports to our CEOP Command will be looked into, and information which may be of relevance to our UK or international law enforcement partners is shared as appropriate.”
A Cleveland Police spokeswoman said today: “We are carrying out enquiries in conjunction with other agencies to determine where the image originated from.”
