Edward Paisnel, the Beast of Jersey, was the son of wealthy Jersey landowners.
During the period 1958 - 1971, Paisnel abducted and abused a number of children.
Paisnel was a fan of the 15th-century Breton, Gilles de Rais, who murdered around 200 children.
The authorities discovered that Paisnel had a secret satanic chamber. (Sir Peter Crill obituary - Times Online)

According to The Sunday Times (Pressure on police to release paedophile dossier), 23 April 2006, Strathclyde Police have a dossier listing members of a child-abuse ring.
This dossier may identify the people who kidnapped Moira.
The dossier is said to implicate senior public figures, including senior police officers and members of the Crown Office and former Scottish Office.
These public figures are said to have abused children in Strathclyde (the Glasgow area) during the 1950s and 1960s.
The dossier is said to list vehicles and safe houses used in Glasgow, Monklands and Paisley where children were hidden before being taken to sex parties.
Strathclyde police have decided not to release the dossier.
The dossier was written by James Gallogley, a convicted child-abuser who died in Peterhead prison in 1999.
