A DANGEROUS paedophile who kept sickening images of child abuse on his computer at his Eastbourne home has died in jail.
Glen Want also had a picture of himself spanking a nine-year-old boy on his computer when police raided his mobile home in Oak Tree Lane in 2008.
More than 11,000 child abuse images of children aged between one and eight were found on the computer and documents containing references to masochism, torture and even the death of young children were discovered.
Want was jailed indefinitely by a crown court judge and asked to be chemically castrated.
Forty-two-year-old Want told the judge he wanted to be chemically castrated to curb his sick urges and said he wanted to volunteer for treatment which would leave him impotent.
He died from natural causes. It is believed he died from ill health and had a ‘do not resuscitate tattoo’.
A Prison Service spokesman said, “HMP Lewes prisoner Glen Want was found unresponsive in his cell at about 7.30am on Wednesday 17 September.
“Paramedics attended and took him to hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 8.50am.
“As with all deaths in custody, the Independent Prisons and Probation Ombudsman will conduct an investigation.”
