One of the most notorious pedophiles, who was part of a gang that drugged and raped children, has been found dead. This was after rumors that his inmates had taken “contracts” out of him.

A 31-years old James King, also called Robin Hollyson, was serving his 24 years imprisonment after he was found guilty of raping a 3-months old baby. He was in the fourth month of his sentence.

John Denham, a fellow prisoner, confirmed that inmates at HMP Bristol prison took out contracts on King to burn him or to give him a “black eye or two.” Days later, King was found unconscious in his cell. He was rushed to Southmead Hospital, where he died.

Denham also said the James seemed upset that day of the incidence. He had received a note from his old friend who didn’t want any contact with him.

King was among the notorious group of pedophiles jailed in 2015 for sexually abusing children. The judge who ruled this case, Julian Lambert, described the gang as “evil beyond rational understanding.”

Before King was sentenced to imprisonment, he was reported of suffering anxiety and depression. His condition became even worse during the sentencing.

He had also tried to commit suicide before he was taken to prison, and had been placed under supervision three times, for fear he might kill or harm himself.

His mother, Deborah Wyatt, said that the last time he visited King, he told her he’s worried about his safety.

The mother said:

“During that visit, James informed us of an incident in which a fellow prisoner had been sugared. That incident involved one of his co-defendants, Matthew.”

“James suggested to us that the attack on Matthew was intended for him. I believe he was concerned, and I believe he was told about the attack by another prisoner,”

Two suicide letters were also found in King’s cell, but the details of the notes weren’t disclosed.

King’s cellmate, Cona Ellis, said he was awakened by “gargling noises” and saw King committing suicide. He was the one who alerted the police. He said he wasn’t involved and didn’t know King was trying to commit suicide.
