Suspected child pornographer Geoffrey Portway had plans to kidnap, rape, and cannibalize children

Documents including disturbing photos of a dungeon built by a man who planned to torture and eat children were filed by federal prosecutorsTuesday.

Geoffrey Portway, 40, pleaded guilty in May to distribution and possession of child pornography and solicitation to kidnap a child, accordingto the Boston Herald. Hewill be sentenced next Tuesday.

Prosecutors said Portway, a British-born Massachusetts man, constructed a basement torture room and regularly chatted online about raping, killing, cooking and eating children. Although it was never used, the photos of the homemade torture dungeon are chilling.

The images, taken by investigators in his Worcester, Mass., home in 2012, show a restraint table, a child-sized coffin, a steel cage and various butcher's tools.


Federal officials began investigating Portway after they linked him to an online chatroom centered around cannibalism and child rape. During their investigation, authorities found child pornography and images of children who appeared to be dead on Portway's computer. He initially pleaded not guilty to federal charges, but later changed his plea to guilty.

Transcripts from Portway's online conversations, obtained by The Huffington Post, include extremely graphic descriptions of his plans to rape, kill and eat children. He also describes, in detail, the dungeon that authorities ultimately found in his basement.

"Really want to eat a nice young boy. Setting[up] my basement," Portway saysin one 2010 chat. He goes on to say that his"setup" as "[a] locked basement, has a cage, has a table to tie peopleto, working onsound proofing now."

Black soundproofing foam can be seen on the walls inthe investigators' photos of Portway'sbasement.

According to the transcripts, Portway also stated that he put the victim's cagein a separate room fromthe butcher's table, but nonetheless the victim would "know he will be my dinner."

Hespeaksto fattening up hisvictims whilekeeping them caged, noting that the cageheowns hasa "whole [sic] init for head to comeout for feedings. :) … [the victim will be] sticking hislittle head, gag in place, through thehole :) if heis young enough, hewill be sitting on my lap wheni feed him. but if older, the hole will work."

One of Portway's online correspondentswasRonald Brown, a Florida puppeteer who was sentenced in July to 20 years inprison on charges of child pornography and conspiring to kidnap a child. Brown --whose puppetry website, Puppets Plus, promised "grinsand giggles" for kids-- regularly chatted online about his desires to kidnap, rape, murder and eat children.
