Anti-Paedophile Vigilante Jailed For Murder
An anti-paedophile vigilante who murdered a gay man he wrongly believed was a child molester has been told he may never be freed from jail.
Christopher Hunnisett, 28, was jailed for life with a minimum term of 18 years at Woolwich Crown Court for the killing of supermarket worker Peter Bick, 57.
But the judge warned he was an "extremely dangerous man" who "may well kill again" if released in the foreseeable future.
Mr Justice Saunders said: "The time may never come when this defendant is considered safe to be released."
Hunnisett battered Mr Bick with a hammer and strangled him with a shoelace after having sex with him in January last year.
He tried to cover his tracks by sending text messages falsely suggesting that the supermarket worker believed he was meeting a 15-year-old boy.
The murder came just four months after Hunnisett was acquitted on retrial of killing Reverend Ronald Glazebrook.
Following his release from jail after nine years, he drew up a "hit list" of men he planned to kill in an attempt to rid the world of paedophiles.
The court was told that Mr Bick was top of this list despite there being "not a shred of evidence" that he was a child molester.
