Pictures give closer look at Worcester house of horrors
WORCESTER, Mass. (WHDH) -- Federal prosecutors released pictures showing a closer look inside a house of horrors in Worcester where police say a man wanted to kidnap, rape, kill and cannibalize children.
The graphic images show items located in the man's basement. The courts released these pictures just one week before his sentencing.
Among the items pictured were a child-sized coffin, a steel cage, handcuffs and a butcher kit.
Several DVDs focusing on cannibalism were also on shelves.
Geoffrey Portway is a British citizen who lived in the United States for most of his life. Portway pleaded guilty to solicitation to commit a crime of violence, and possession and distribution of child pornography.
Authorities said he chatted online with other men about their mutual desire to abduct, kill and eat children.
Federal prosecutors will ask for a 27-year prison sentence for Portway. Sentencing will take place Tuesday, September 17.
Caution: Details contained in these images are graphic and disturbing.
