An investigation revealed that Payne had communicated with other criminals on the internet – exchanging stories, fantasies, and extremely explicit pornography.

Payne was reported to have made remarks about engaging in sexual activity with dogs.

The teenager was imprisoned for four years, with an extended license of three years, on May 2 at Snaresbrook Crown Court.

He has also been issued with a ten year sexual harm prevention order and will remain on the Sex Offenders Register for life.

A probe conducted by the metropolitan police online child sex abuse and exploitation team in Camden was initiated after law enforcement received three distinct reports of the posting of indecent pictures of minors on Snapchat, Instagram, and Discord.

From 2021 to 2022, detectives discovered that Ethan Payne was linked to the upload of this material. As a result, a warrant was issued and Payne was arrested at his residence on October 12, 2022, on the suspicion of distributing indecent images of children.

During the search of his home, Payne’s laptop and mobile phone were confiscated. Police reported that the content on the devices revealed Payne to be a dangerous sex offender with a preoccupation with necrophilia, paedophilia, animal abuse, murder and torture.

On the laptop and mobile phone combined, officers found pornographic images in categories A to C, with A being the most extreme.

There were 430 Category A, 247 Category B, 125 Category C and 157 extreme pornography images.

Subsequently, Ethan Payne was charged with the following:

  • Three counts of possession of an indecent image of a child
  • Two counts of possession of an extreme pornographic image / images portraying an act of intercourse / oral sex with a dead or alive animal
  • Four counts of distributing an indecent photograph / pseudo-photograph of a child
  • One count of being an offender 18 or over causing / inciting a boy under 13 to engage in sexual activity.
  • One count of encouraging/ assisting in the commission of an either way offence believing it will be committed (Serious Crime Act 2007)

On November 15, 2022, he admitted his guilt in regards to 10 out of 11 charges.

One allegation of possessing an extreme pornographic image was ultimately withdrawn because it was deemed a duplicate crime.

Investigating Police Constable Lydia Kelly said: “There is no doubt that Payne is a danger to children and to animals.

“He is focused in his depravity on the most vulnerable and the sharing of his material online has fuelled other paedophiles.

“It is right that he has been jailed, his abhorrent behavior has no place in society.”
