from Daily Mail:
The first pictures of a stomach-turning torture chamber where a British-born Massachusetts resident planned to rape, murder and eat children have emerged.
Prosecutors are pushing for would-be cannibal Geoffrey Portway, 40, to be put away for 27 years after he confessed to plotting the heinous crimes.
Photographs taken by investigators of Portway’s Worchester home in 2012 show an eerie staircase leading to a hidden basement room containing a ‘child-sized homemade coffin,’ a steel cage, handcuffs and a set of butcher’s knives.

‘Portway has pled guilty to some of the most vile and heinous crimes known to our society, namely participating in the sexual exploitation of young children through the possession and distribution of child pornography and soliciting the kidnapping of a child for the purpose of killing and consuming that child,’ federal prosecutors wrote in court documents, obtained by the Boston Herald.
Guilty: Portway, 40, was sentenced to 27 years on Tuesday in Worcester, Massachusetts
The sentencing papers, filed yesterday, include frightening excerpts from online chats Portway had with like-minded child pornographers and potential killers, including Florida puppeteer Ronald Brown who planned to kidnap children he knew through his local church.
According to the Herald, Brown went as far as to send Portway a photograph of a young boy ‘with lines drawn on him to identify the different cuts of meat.’
The two chatted about kidnapping the boy, taking him to a rented house and eating him over several weeks before feeding the ‘leftovers’ to alligators. Brown has since been convicted.
In May, Portway pleaded guilty to solicitation to kidnap a child and to distribution and possession of child pornography. As a British national, he will likely be deported after serving his sentence.
Portway had numerous chats with individuals about a ‘mutual interest in abducting, raping, murdering, and eating children,’ an agreed statement of facts released by the U.S. attorney in Boston in May stated.
