YORKSHIRE, England (KETK/WNCN) – A man described by many as Great Britain’s worst pedophile was found stabbed to death in his jail cell, according to the UK’s Ministry of Justice.

Richard Huckle, 33, had claimed to have molested nearly 200 Malaysian children. He was found unresponsive on Sunday afternoon.

He was serving 22 life sentences for the crims. Huckle’s victims ranged in age from six months to 12 years old.

The photographer took pictures and videos of himself raping children that he groomed from schools and orphanages, and shared the images with other pedophiles on the dark web.

In his blog, Huck would award himself “Pedopoints” on a type of scoreboard which the judge called “a truly evil comment”
