Ex-Lostprophets Pervert Now Being Investigated for Even More Sickness

Ian Watkins, the sicko singer of Lostprophets, was sentenced to 35 years in jail Wednesday for a series of hideous sexual crimes (including attempted baby rape).  Now that his UK trial is over, officials in both Germany and the US want to take a look at this guy.

Here’s a portion of a statement from Chief Inspector Peter Doyle, a senior investigating officer:

“The safeguarding of children has been an absolute priority for the investigation team.   Today’s sentence does not mark the end of our investigations and we will work tirelessly to identify any other victims or witnesses and seek the justice they deserve.  In the last few weeks we have received further information that will now be looked at by the investigation team.“There are also investigations being conducted by other police forces around the world including Germany and the United States.

“Above all this investigation has been focused on the protection of children and my thoughts today remain with those victims.

“We would encourage anyone who has been affected by this case or other cases of child abuse to contact South Wales Police on 029 20634184 or the NSPCC on 0808 800 5000.”

This story isn’t going away anytime soon.  The NME has more.
