Child Rapist In Global Pedophile Ring Pleads Guilty To Sexually Assaulting Toddlers And Babies

A child rapist, involved in a global pedophile ring that sexually abused toddlers and babies, was a charity office manager. Christopher Knight admitted he was part of a worldwide pedophile ring, which drugged and raped children, all under the age of five.

For about five years, Christopher Knight worked at a social group for bisexual and gay men called OutdoorLads. He was ultimately suspended after he was arrested in November 2014.

The child rapist and other members of his worldwide pedophile ring travelled long distances to carry out the attacks together. If only one of the child rapists’ sexually abused a child, they would live-stream the abuse over the internet, often using the dark web, a portion of content on the World Wide Web not indexed by typical search engines.

Manchester Evening News reports 34-year-old Knight pleaded guilty to one count of rape of a child under 13, two counts of conspiracy to rape a child under 13, two counts of sexual assault of a child under 13, and one count of taking, showing, or possessing indecent images of children.

OutdoorLads said they were “shocked and appalled” upon hearing about Knight being a child rapist and the crimes he committed. Knight was the charity’s officer manager until his recent suspension.

A spokesperson for the outdoor social group commented about Knight.

“Chris Knight was an employee at OutdoorLads. As the organization is for over-18s only, he did not require DBS checks. Mr. Knight was arrested in November and he was immediately suspended from his post at OutdoorLads. We were deeply shocked and appalled to find out that he was involved in a crime such as this. We want to stress that Mr. Knight’s crimes are totally unrelated to his work at OutdoorLads, and no one else at the charity was implicated in connection with the police enquiry.”

Manchester Evening News was able to retrieve an interview with the child rapist from May 2011, which was on the Manchester Pride website before it was removed.

Knight talks about how his non-profit OutdoorLads group organized activities, like hiking, sailing, biking, canoeing, skiing, and camping, to help gay and bisexual men build friendships and trusting relationships.

Knight said, “I’m looking forward to Manchester Pride this year as well as spending more time with my long suffering boyfriend who never complains when I dash off to some remote location or other.”

The National Crime Agency (NCA) led the investigation into the pedophile ring. They said the group has “tentacles that go round the world” and its members were “monsters in disguise.”

NCA Uncovers Pedophile Ring

The child rapist gang perpetrated their attacks on a global scale. Fortunately, the NCA passed the information they had gathered on the pedophile ring to international law enforcement agencies on every continent.

Some of the information investigators uncovered involved online chat logs where members of the pedophile gang offered suggestions and directions to others on drugging their young victims.

The ring of child rapists also talked about how to stop their child victims from crying. They even joked about the likelihood of talking to undercover officers online.

The ring used their own language, which included references to nep, a shortened version of nepiophile, a word they used in describing child rapists who are sexually attracted to babies and toddlers.

In September 2014, the NCA started their investigation after one of the members of the pedophile ring contacted police and admitted he had abused a child.

Investigators eventually identified a few of the child rapists, as well as three victims–a baby, a toddler, and a pre-school age child. However, investigators suspect there are more victims.

Knight and six other men were arrested and have been convicted of 30 child offences. The other men are John Denham, 49, Matthew Stansfield, 34, Adam Toms, 33, Robin Hollyson, 30, David Harsley, 51, and Matthew Lisk, 32.
