Mystery pedophile suspect on the run

Canadian Christopher Paul Neil, a 32-year-old English teacher who has taught in South Korea and Vietnam, is being sought in the infamous case of a serial pedophile who extensively photographed himself raping Thai boys as young as six, uploading the 200 + pictures to the Internet, but digitally altering the photographs to hide his own identity (although not those of the victims).

His whereabouts are currently unknown, and it is believed that he is attempting to evade capture.

German experts attempted to uncover an identifiable picture of the suspect by undoing the manipulations, giving the above final image. This was enough to get an ID on a suspect, Christopher Paul Neil, who has posted on the Korean Job Discussion Board using the name Peter Jackson.

Among other things, his posts mentioned how he got around the mandatory criminal records check for English teachers.

Police checks are NOT needed to get a visa. Public schools will want one but you should be able to stall them. Often they want teachers SO quickly that they will “wait” for some things. I never gave a police check for my last public school job. I was in Vietnam at the time and getting one wasn’t easy. I delayed and never heard about it again.

and how to hide things from inspectors:

[I]’ve never heard of porn been a problem in Korea. On my first trip there in 2000 I remember reading the customs declaration form while on the plane. I was SO nervous for the remaining hours on the plane because I happened to have a couple Penthouse magazines in my bag. I ended up tossing them in the bin at the airport washroom, only to find out that no one would have found them anyway.

In terms of computers, if you’re worried about any “content” there are several ways to encrypt your drive. A friend has highly recommended Truecrypt, which you can download.

If you want to get rid of old files so no one will see, then simply deleting them will not work. You’ll have to get a program like Jetico’s BC Wipe and “delete with wiping”.

He worked in Wonsam (near Yongin) and then Gwangju in Jeollanamdo, and wasn’t beloved by co-workers, it appears:

I knew him as a pretty normal guy, as far as ESL teachers go. I didn’t work with him (his former school has been informed, and if they know anything, they’re not telling at this point.) To be perfectly honest, I perceived him as the kind of guy who didn’t have much luck with girls and would be comfortable purchasing sex (just based on his overall presentation and some comments he made regarding working girls in Thailand.) I wouldn’t have been surprised if he had had a fake degree or passport– but I would never ever have guessed that he was sexually into children. We didn’t discuss it, and I never saw him around children.

A standard Zeta male.

  2. Oh yes, I hope he’s tried in the east.

    What continues to infuriate me about peadophilia is the publics view that they can somehow spot these monsters. I’ve heard people say that a particular chap couldn’t possibly have done this or that because he was so nice/ had a good job/ drove a nice car/ was a vicar etc. So the downside of this story is that it fits the profile of loser abroad, when in fact such monsters are in your neighbourhood.

    I really hope they get this saddo.

  3. Wait a minute – a pedophile with Penthouse in his possession? (Sorry about all the P’s – that’s a whole lotta prick with pussy).

    Now how does that make any sense?

  4. Maybe to know him is to love him. NOT!
    Ewwww.. creepy internet pics?
    Thank the good Lord you didn’t post a link to that crap.
    And I know how much you like links . . . :0)

  5. I thought about finding it, but then thought about what I’d be facilitating and said No.

    Interestingly, on the Huffpo blog that linked to me, someone using the name Peter Jackson posted in defense of the guy. Came from an Asian IP, too. The blogger, more credit to him, posted the IP and email and banned the guy.

  6. eeek. when I worked as a volunteer in vietnam I was asked to bring a police check with me. I did, but then no one asked to see it.

    maybe because I was female and had worked at the same orphanage previously so they knew me.

    I heard that there had been an incident with a male volunteer in the past. very sad. these children are so vulnerable but paedophiles have no conscience whatsoever.
