It is with great sadness that founding member of paedophile hunters Dark Justice dies in ‘tragic accident’

It is with great sadness that Callum, co-founder of Dark Justice friend of Police Hour has sadly died.

Our thoughts are with Scott and the family of Callum at this difficult time.

The Newcastle-based paedophile hunting group was set up by Scott and Callum in 2014.

In the tragic Facebook post Scott announced that Callum has died following tragic accident.

The duo, whose full names have never been revealed, set up Dark Justice in 2014 and have helped bring more than 100 paedophiles to justice by snaring them online.

The post on Facebook reads “This is the hardest post I have ever had to make.

“It is with great sadness I have to announce that Callum the co-founder of dark justice sadly lost his life in a tragic accident.

“Myself and his family are very upset and broken by this tragic news.

“And with that I need to tell you that I will also be stepping away from dark justice I have tried to think of a way to continue but sadly without my best friend I can’t see my self continuing.

“I would like to thank you all for the amazing support you have shown us over the last 7 years and a thank you to all the other groups out there fighting for the rights of children and in the words of Callum “go get em lads!”

“Rest easy bro until we meet again.”

The thoughts of the Police Hour team are with everyone who knew Callum at this difficult time.

We had the great pleasure of Scott and Callum dropping into our offices in Hartlepool offices unannounced they are a great pair and Callum will be greatly missed.

We will never your get your warmth and friendship and the incredible legacy you have left behind.

Both Scott and Callum’s passion drive and determination really did ensure children were safeguarded across the UK.
