The 1998 MPS anonymous letter
5.9 A second computerised record is the reproduction of an anonymous letter dated 13 July 1998 and addressed to the Vice Squad/Unit at New Scotland Yard, London. We set it out in full here:
“I supply here information which if looked into by one of your officers will yield a secret life not unlike that of [name].
MPS force area. Boundary changes in 1999-2000 meant that, thereafter, the School became part of Surrey Police force area.
28 Paragraphs 11.5 – 11.9.
I can not (sic) give you my name as I am too closely involved and do not wish to be in the limelight and have the finger pointed at myself. If you think this is not a genuine letter, then it is your loss.
The image that JIMMY SAVILE has tried to portray over the years is someone who is deeply concerned with his fellow man; however, the thrust of this is entirely the opposite. His fund-raising activities are not out of altruistic motives, but purely for selfish advancement and an easy living. He has slimed his way in wherever possible. He has tried to hide his homosexuality, which in any event is an open secret with those who know; but did you know that he is also a deeply committed paedophile, and involved in buggery with young children.
An incident that happened some years ago (not that long) was when he was involved with a young „rent boy‟. This rent boy followed him to [place]. JIMMY SAVILE foolishly gave this rent boy his Leeds telephone number [set out in the text] which he has now subsequently changed; this was because he was having threatening calls from this rent boy, who was going to go to the press and expose him for his paedophilia, if he did not give him more money. I know at the time he was extremely angry and frightened. How it ended, I really do not know. What can not (sic) be acceptable and must be stopped is JIMMY SAVILE‟s paedophilia. I know he has pornography, but do not know which of his houses it is in. Regularly, he runs for the „Life‟ charity in Roundhay Park in Leeds, he would say „Now I‟ve had a run, I feel like some bum‟. And would then later in the evening go where the rent boys hang out.
He thinks he is untouchable because of the people he mixes with, and again I know from personal experience, that they find him amusing and the butt of many jokes. There are many more things I could tell you, but they are trivial in comparison to the main issue.
sickened. (sic) Please, do not let him get away with this perversion and that he feels immune because of the people he mixes with. There are too many of his perverted type around – don‟t let him continue to think he is untouchable, or that his secret is too well hidden. [Name] made a mistake, - don‟t let JIMMY SAVILE get away with it either.
When JIMMY SAVILE fails, and sooner or later he will, a lot of well-known personalities and past politicians are going to fall with him.
I have done my duty, my conscience is clear, you have the power, time, and resources at Scotland Yard to wheedle him out, and expose him for what he really is.
If you think this is a hoax, or a crank letter, think again. It is not I who suffer if you do nothing, but the children.”
