Child abuse inquiry must ‘investigate historic murders of men with child abuse evidence’

The Independent:

Bulic Forsythe, a civil servant at Lambeth Council, was beaten to death at his flat in 1993 after reportedly telling a colleague he knew about a sex ring operating at children’s homes. Police said documents had gone missing from his home. The case featured on a Crimewatch reconstruction, in which police appealed for help in tracking down three smartly dressed men who left the flat the day after the murder. The case remains unsolved.

Mr Mann, the MP for Bassetlaw, said he had also asked police to investigate the reported murder of a caretaker a couple of years earlier, who was said to have obtained videos of child sex “parties”.

Mr Mann said he was first told more than 25 years ago about the caretaker’s death in an arson attack. Police have spoken to his source to try to establish the dead man’s identity and the circumstances surrounding the story.  “Both of them were people who were blowing the whistle on child abuse, for whatever reason, and were suspicious deaths,” said Mr Mann.
