Paedophile is found dead in prison weeks after being jailed for abusing five-year-old

Daniel Davey, 22, was found guilty of sexually abusing a very young boy after the child told his mother he wanted to tell her ‘something dirty.’ He was sentenced to six-and-a-half years in prison in December last year, but was found dead in his cell at HMP Bullingdon, in Oxfordshire, on January 12.

A spokesperson for the MOJ is reported as saying that Davey’s death would be investigated by the Prison Service Ombudsman. Davey abused his victim while living and working in Chippenham, and police found his DNA on the child’s underwear.
