The existence of “snuff” pornography, in which the victim is killed on camera, has long been rumoured, but until last year no police officer had ever seen one. [This statement is incorrect. Snuff films were also discovered in the UK 14 years ago, and that case also involved Russian associates, just like this one.] A film seized during a raid on a Latvian man’s house in Skelmersdale, Lancashire, shows a teenage girl begging a man not to hurt her before she is raped, then strangled with a wire causing her to foam at the mouth and her eyes to roll back into her head. She is then wrapped tightly in a plastic sheet and dragged from the room. The police officer leading the inquiry was convinced she was murdered.
The judge who sentenced Andreas Bauminis, 22, to eight months in jail for possessing that film and other material in March also said she was probably killed. From her accent, police believe the girl to be American, but despite having images of her and her apparent killer for 15 months, they have done nothing to help trace them. Neither Britain’s Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP), which is part of the National Crime Agency (NCA), nor any US agency such as the FBI have yet been sent the video. Both CEOP and the US agencies have powerful facial recognition software. Campaigning Labour MP Tom Watson said the revelations highlighted a serious failure in the UK’s policing of child pornography....Mr Watson said: “If the view of the judge and the police in this case is true, then Britain's police have sat on evidence of a child murder for over a year....The raid on Bauminis’s house in February 2013 came after a tip-off from the Russian Interior Ministry, which had monitored an upload of child pornography from a UK-based computer address.
The Russian government contacted CEOP, which traced the computer to a house in Skelmersdale.When Lancashire Police raided the home, they discovered an “enormous” computer that one officer said resembled “something out of a submarine”. Sick films, including Japanese cartoons depicting sexual abuse of children by adults and animals, were found. However, it was the other 20-minute video featuring a white, blonde girl of about 14 years of age and made about two years ago that shook even hardened officers. Detective Constable Edward Wenham, who led the investigation, said it was the “worst thing I had seen by a country mile”. He said: “My firm belief was this child was definitely killed.
“A man in his 40s was decorating; he had a goatee beard and you could see his face quiet clearly. “The young girl came into the room and asked him for money to go to cheerleading camp. “The girl was white. It was apparent that the man was either her father or stepfather. “The man began to shout obscenities, then he sexually abused her before strangling her and sexually abusing her again. “After that he laid out a clear plastic sheet and laid the body in this, then wrapped it tightly around her. It took about three minutes for this. I was convinced this was not acting and that the girl was dead. If she had been play-acting when the plastic was wrapped around her face she could not have been able to keep so still. If it was acting, it was better than an Oscar-winning performance: her eyes didn’t blink or move at all. Other horrific videos showing even younger girls being abused were also found, which detectives believe were made in Russia."
Sentencing at Liverpool Crown Court in March, Judge Dennis Watson QC said while it was difficult to be certain that the girl had died on camera “all the evidence points to the fact that she almost certainly did”.
He imposed a prison sentence of eight months and Bauminis could be released this summer. Mike Hames, the former head of Scotland Yard’s Obscene Publications Unit, described the seizure of the “snuff” video as “incredibly important” because it appeared to verify long held suspicions such material existed. He said it was vital to comb through Bauminis’s contacts. “You have to work on the presumption he’ll be part of a wider network of paedophiles they’ll be sharing child pornography between them."

It is being reported that a young boy was murdered during a torture session filmed at Amsterdam's Blue Boy club. There is evidence that a UK Member of Parliament was present when the boy was killed. UK Police are currently investigating the Member of Parliament's link to the snuff movie.
This child murder is linked to Warwick Spinks who is linked to the Elm Guest House boy brothel in London which is linked to the UK security services. Around 1969, Warwick Spinks was caught on secret camera offering to supply a video in which a 10 year old boy was killed and another featuring the horrific abuse of a young boy. The untouchable "Warwick Spinks ... built businesses and bought properties in South Africa, Namibia, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Switzerland, France and England..."
It has been reported that a number of top Conservative Members of the UK parliament took young boys to Holland for the purpose of child sexual abuse. A source said: "Officers were told Spinks knew the MP and arranged a tour to Amsterdam. While there he went to the Blue Boy bar, where Spinks was running a brothel.
"The MP was said to have been present when a boy died during an orgy which was being filmed."
Award-winning journalist Nick Davies wrote about the grim mysteries of snuff movies. [The following passage quotes Davies]:
"One boy had simply been shot through the head", Terry said. "He had been causing trouble and had been executed in front of several paedophiles." Another, he believed, had been thrown into one of the canals. "But the one about whom he spoke the most was a boy who had been tortured and killed in the most painful fashion in the course of producing a pornographic video."
Alan Williams, the "Welsh Witch", and Londoner Warwick Spinks managed boy brothels in Amsterdam
Williams boasted of the day in south Wales when he had seen a 10-year-old boy on his bike, grabbed him, raped him, and, when he cried, strangled him. From Boys Clubs 21, he organised the importing of boys from Cardiff and London, inflicting intense violence on any who defied him. Spinks had been running a mail order pornography business from Brighton, before he moved to Amsterdam. ..reportedly sections of the British police said they lacked the money to investigate what was happening in Europe...In the UK, it has been alleged that dangerous child abusers held key positions in certain local government authorities, such as Islington in London...It has become clear that all of the above child abuse can be linked to the CIA, and its friends in Mossad, MI6, MI5...If the CIA wants to control the boss of MI6, or the Secretary General of NATO, or a top Hollywood entertainer, or the President of the United States, or a member of a royal family, or a newspaper editor, or a key employee of Google, it can supply them with young girls or boys.
In order to get the system in place, the CIA has to know where children will be available for abuse.
A guide book is helpful. In 1964, an American called Bob Damron published a book listing gay bars.
The CIA is reported to have photographs of certain top foreign dignitaries visiting such bars.
From 1969/1970 onwards you could buy the Spartacus guide book which listed the child brothels all around the world from Port Au Prince to Pattaya. Now, the big question is, how on earth did the Spartacus editors know the details of all these brothels around the world? The people most likely to know all the details were the CIA and its friends. The CIA has been linked to child abuse and child murder worldwide.
The Spartacus Club and Spartacus International were run from Amsterdam by John Stamford, a former Roman Catholic priest from the UK. In 1995, Stamford died mysteriously in prison in Belgium, aged 56.
Spartacus members got a '10% Discount' at the Elm Guest House boy brothel in London. Peter Glencross, commercial manager of Spartacus, helped persuade Carole Kasir to turn her Elm Guest House into a boy brothel.
Peter Glencross reportedly set out to create a network of child brothels for Spartacus members.
Customers of the Elm Guest house included members of MI5 and a cabinet minister, reportedly.
