'Canoe Man' Darwin Complains Of Harassment

Post by Guest on Wed Apr 27, 2011 7:54 pm

Back-from-the-dead fraudster John Darwin has complained to the police that he is being harassed, three months after leaving jail.


Darwin and his wife were arrested after a photo of them in Panama was found online

Darwin, who became known as the 'Canoe Man' after faking his death in the sea near Hartlepool in 2002, claims he has been pestered by relatives of the dead baby whose identity he stole.

The former prison officer moved to Panama with his wife Anne after obtaining a bogus passport using the birth certificate of John Jones, who died 34 days after being born prematurely in Sunderland. The pair had fleeced insurance companies and pension firms out of more than £250,000 while she hid him in their home in Seaton Carew.

The surviving siblings of the dead baby have been angered by Darwin's claims that his fraud was a victimless crime and have recently tried to contact him at his rented house in Easington. A spokesman for Durham Police said: "We can confirm we have received a complaint of harassment of a man from the Easington Colliery area.


Anne Darwin was alo jailed but has since been released

"Initial inquiries suggest no offence has been committed at this time." Darwin walked into a London police station in 2007 claiming he had lost his memory, but he and his wife were arrested after a photograph of the pair was found on a Panamanian website.

Anne Darwin claimed he had forced her to help him, but was found guilty of deception and money laundering and jailed along with her husband.
Sky News revealed that Darwin had returned to the UK hoping to collect documents that would allow him to rejoin his wife in Panama where he said she was a "filthy rich gringo". Anne Darwin, a devout Catholic, has kept a low profile since being released from prison last month and has told friends she wants nothing more to do with her husband.

I am sure that the Police are giving this complaint the attention it deserves, very little. What right has this guy to complain? Evil or Very Mad
