Pedophile Who Raped 5-Year-Old Found Dead in Prison With 'Testicles Missing'
Child abuser dies in prison cell after sustaining severe injuries
A notorious pedophile has been found dead in his prison cell after his testicles were "removed" and his injuries went untreated.
The former McDonald's worker, 22-year-old Daniel Davey, was jailed in late 2017 after he was caught raping a 5-year-old boy.
He was arrested after the child told his mother he needed to tell her "something dirty."
Following a police investigation, evidence emerged that Davey has also raped another child aged six.
The child abuser was sentenced to six-and-a-half years in prison on December 1, which he would serve at HMP Bullingdon, in Oxfordshire, UK.
The Category B & C prison houses some of Britain's most dangerous criminals.
Davey's body was discovered by guards during morning wake up when he failed to respond.
According to one prison guard, Davey appeared to have received "a beating," and there was "blood everywhere."
The guard also noted that Davey's "testicles were gone" and he appeared to have bled to death.
Although not a life-threatening injury in itself, if left untreated, a person would likely bleed out over several hours and may suffer from shock due to the extreme pain.
It is still unclear how his injuries went unnoticed by staff members until the morning, or why Davey himself didn't raise the alarm or seek help.
A Ministry of Justice spokesperson said the Prison Service Ombudsman would conduct a full investigation into Davey’s death.
Davey sexually abused his victims while working and living in Chippenham, UK, and police found his DNA on the children's underwear.
A former girlfriend stated in court that she had also seen an image on Davey’s computer of a man raping a child, but he claimed he had been sent it by someone else "as a joke."
According to reports, Davey destroyed his computer shortly before he was arrested.
He was found guilty and ordered to serve a lifetime Sexual Harm Prevention Order and register as a sex offender.
Investigators say they are not treating his death as suspicious and have yet to rule out suicide.
