A teen paedophile who kept a murder manual of his 30 intended victims has been jailed.
Harry Leigh, 19, wanted to be known as the Red Ribbon Killer of Hastings and made plans to kill young girls and leave red ribbons by their bodies.
Police searched Leighs home in Hastings, Sussex, after he was arrested for the rape of a 15-year-old schoolgirl whom he had offered to help with her homework.
During the search, police discovered a murder manual, plastic sheeting, maps and a collection of knives, the Sun reported.
Following his arrest, many more victims came forward who had been attacked by him.
During a trial at Hove Crown Court, the unemployed teen pleaded guilty to five counts of inciting four girls aged between 13 and 15 to engage in sexual activity, eight counts of causing seven girls aged between 12 and 15 to watch a sexual act and three counts of making indecent images of children in January 2018.
He was sentenced to eight years in jail with an extended prison release licence of six years for the rape of the schoolgirl.
In a victim impact statement the schoolgirl said: Its hard to put into words all the ways this has affected my life and who I thought I was going to be.
I dont feel comfortable in my own skin and I feel that looking at me can always tell.
I have nightmares almost every night. I cant stuff the feelings back inside.
Im still full of anger and resentment at what happened.
The court heard Leighs offending had started when he was just 13 years old and became increasingly serious.
