Snuff movie disgust

Crime story

A SHOCKING “snuff movie” was found at the home of a young factory worker along with other appalling child abuse images, a court heard.

A judge told Andreas Bauminis: “It is hard to imagine or contemplate a more grotesque, revolting, repulsive and inhuman series of images.”

The videos were found by police at his home in Willow Hey, Skelmersdale, which he shared with his brother’s family, following information from the Russian Ministry of the Interior about use of internet file sharing sites.

One video showed a girl no older than 11 being sexually abused by a number of men. A 20-minute “snuff” video showed a 15-year-old being raped, strangled with a wire and apparently murdered. It was not clear whether she really died or not, but Judge Denis Watson thought she probably she did. Jailing him for eight months the Liverpool Crown Court judge also ordered the 22-year-old to sign the Sex Offenders’ Register for 10 years and imposed an order limiting internet use.

Bauminis admitted making indecent photographs of a child, possessing extreme porn and possessing prohibited cartoon images of children. Claire Jones, defending, said a probation report found Bauminis “a remote, introverted individual who shows remorse.” She said he would welcome outside help to curb his behaviour.
