Pervert caught with indecent images of children fantasised about being like Fred and Rosemary West

A pervert who admitted to police that he fantasised about being like child killers Fred and Rosemary West has been given a suspended jail sentence.

Former dairyman Lee Smith (44), of Disraeli Street, Aylestone, Leicester, was caught with indecent images of children on his computer as well as a number of illegal extreme ‘beastiality’ porn DVDs he had bought in Amsterdam.

After he was arrested on January 29 last year he was questioned by police and Leicester Crown Court heard yesterday that he had made a number of “concerning” admissions to the police officers.

The court was told that Smith had a fascination with serial killers and couples that kill with a particular interest in Fred and Rose West

The indecent images found on Smith’s computer featured girls aged from around 4 to 12 years old. Smith admitted having perverse thoughts as he enjoyed searching the internet for indecent pictures of ‘pretty young girls’

Smith was told that he must register as a sex offender
