Such a shame

I’ve always said that every cell should have a wobbly stool, a length of rope and a good solid anchor point in it. The man rapist of Hamilton appears to have checked out.

The man charged with a series of sex attacks on men in Hamilton has been found dead while on remand.

The 33-year-old was in custody at a Waikato correctional facility. His body was found overnight.

Police said they were not seeking anyone in relation to the death and the matter had been reported to the Coroner. A police spokesman declined to comment further.

The man appeared in the Hamilton District Court last week charged with abducting and sexually assaulting men in the city. He was granted name suppression at the time.

He faced 10 sex charges including two counts of abduction, five counts of sexual violation and one of indecent assault.

The man was due to reappear in court on December 7.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
