If you’re going to profile a certain type of paedophile then primary school teacher, scout leader, and junior football team manager would tick a few boxes.
Hopefully, men from Burnham-on-Crouch in Essex who know something about the offending of Christopher Dobson will come forward. He’s dead so there will be no trial but it will help the police and may result in ‘friends’ of Mr Dobson who are still alive and perhaps still abusing children, be identified.
Child sex abuse images were found during a house viewing by potential buyers at the home of a dead teacher.
Police are now investigating alleged offences by Christopher Dobson, whose home in Chapel Road, Burnham-on-Crouch, Essex, was put up for sale.
Mr Dobson, who was involved in youth football, died aged 70 in 2012.
Det Ch Insp Mark Hall said he believed Mr Dobson committed serious offences over a period of years, with police now aiming to indentify victims.
The images were discovered in August after Mr Dobson’s next-of-kin decided to sell the property. The retired teacher died the previous December.
