Satanic Pedophile Murderer Could Be Released on Parole After 23 Years

Edward Crowley, a 76-year-old satanic pedophile who brutally murdered 12-year-old Diego Pineiro-Villar in London in 2000, could be released on parole in 2024 after serving only 23 years of a life sentence. Crowley stabbed the young boy 30 times in Covent Garden on May 7, 2000.

Crowley, who named himself after the notorious Satanist Aleister Crowley, had developed an unhealthy fixation on Diego and had been arrested multiple times for harassment and indecency before the murder. Despite clear warning signs, failures in communication and a lack of action by authorities allowed the homeless devil worshipper to carry out the vicious killing of the child.

The possibility of Crowley's release next year has reignited the determination of Diego's childhood friend, William Reed, to seek justice for the murder. Reed has launched a petition calling for longer sentences for child killers, requiring a minimum of 30 years or a full life sentence without the possibility of early parole.

Why this matters: The potential release of a convicted child murderer after serving a relatively short sentence raises serious questions about the justice system's ability to protect vulnerable children and appropriately punish those who commit such heinous crimes. It also highlights the need for improved communication and proactive measures by authorities to prevent tragedies when clear warning signs are present.

Reed emphasized that Crowley, as a satanic pedophile, should not be allowed to walk free after committing such a brutal crime against a 12-year-old child. "He took decades away from Diego, but he only served 23 years in prison," Reed stated. Diego's mother, Angela Fernandez, described the findings of the report on the case as a "whitewash" and criticized the agencies involved for failing to protect her son despite knowing about Crowley's obsession with him.
