Pedophile 'Dolly' Dunn dies in jail
July 11, 2009 09:31am
CONVICTED pedophile Robert "Dolly" Dunn has died in jail aged 68.
Dunn died in Long Bay Prison Hospital at 4am (AEST) on Saturday, a New South Wales Corrective Services spokesman said.
He was serving a 20-year sentence for a series of sexual offences against boys in the 1980s and 1990s.
Dunn, a former school teacher, would have been eligible for parole in 2015, the spokesman said.
In 1996 a Royal Commission chaired by Justice James Woods was shown home videos and photographs from Dunn's collection featuring images of child sex abuse involving Dunn himself.
Dunn fled the country but was later found in Honduras and was successfully extradited back to Australia.
From jail he repeatedly made statements that he saw nothing wrong with sex between men and boys.
He was suffering multiple organ failure and in 2004 underwent coronary bypass surgery after suffering from angina.
