Serial killers Fred
and Rose West shocked
the world with an horrific murder spree that claimed at least 12 lives.
But as the 10th anniversary of the House of Horrors murders approaches,
evidence has emerged of a sinister new twist to their crimes - with an
expert's claims that they were devil-worshippers whose victims were
Renowned Irish author Jim Cairns says new evidence shows the pair may
have been part of a Midland black magic ring.

has previously exposed a satanic sect operating in Kilkenny which he
claimed had been responsible for the disappearance of a number of young
He also wrote the book Disappeared Off The Face Of The Earth about his
firsthand experiences of witches’ covens in Northern Ireland.
Now he is writing a book about the Wests, which will claim that they may
have been involved in ritual killings at Gloucester’s Cromwell Street
- along with others who have never been brought to trial.
Mr Cairns revealed that ALL the West’s victims had finger or toe bones
missing - a common trait in occult killings known as “the magic
And he revealed that the drinking counter the couple had built in their
infamous House of Horror home was named the Black Magic Bar.
Last night Mr Cairns elaborated on the latest theory to surface as to
why the Wests brutally murdered at least 12 young women.
electrician, who also runs a missing persons website in Ireland, said:
“Myself and others believe there is a definite occult or satanic
connection to the West murders.
“The murders reek of human sacrifice with powerful connections.
“The Wests have got all the essential ingredients of ritual killers -
their indifference to the suffering of their victims, the murder of
their own children and the burying of the bodies under their own house.
“The fact that all of the victims had fingers and toes missing, and
that the bar they built to entertain Rose West’s clients was called
the Black Magic Bar, just underlines the point.”
At first it was thought that the name of the bar was a reference to
prostitute Rose’s preference for having sex with black men.
But Mr Cairns thinks it refers to something more sinister.
“It can’t be a coincidence,” he said. “And the Wests wouldn’t
be the first serial killers to have satanic connections.
“I have no doubt that the likes of Jack the Ripper and Myra Hindley
were involved in something similar. Their killing patterns and behaviour
reek of the occult, too.”
In 2002 author Ivor Edwards published a book titled Jack the Ripper’s
Black Magic Rituals, which explored the notorious killer’s satanic

said he plans to write a similar book about the Wests and claims they
may even have been supplying a Gloucestershire coven with human
He believes Fred committed suicide in 1995 after being threatened by
high-ranking members of the coven who feared exposure.
His brother, who was himself suspected of being involved in the murders,
also later killed himself. It is also alleged that Fred told one
journalist he was covering for others.
Mr Cairns said: “It can hardly be coincidence that Fred and his
brother both committed suicide before they had their day in open court
and a chance to tell their stories.
“My belief is that Fred was covering up for people in the coven who
did not want their story to come to light.
“In my experience, members of satanic cults often come from the
professional classes, who would do anything to protect their
Journalist Geoffrey Wansell wrote Fred West’s official biography, An
Evil Love, in 1996.
It included one passage which alluded to Rose’s fascination with black
magic and the occult - an interest shared by one of her victims, nanny
The section reads: “After her arrest the police suggested to Rosemary
West that she had become fascinated by Lynda Gough’s interest in black
magic and satanism, which led them to want to torture and humiliate
their victims as part of a ritual in which other people who shared their
Government-backed report found evidence of children being secretly
reared for sacrifice by satanists in 21st century Britain.
In 2000, psychotherapist Valerie Sinason was funded by the Department of
Health to study adult survivors of alleged organised ritual abuse.
She said she was “completely convinced” that satanic abuse existed
and that children, whose births were not officially registered, were
being reared for abuse and sacrifice.
Mrs Sinason, who edited a clinical textbook on satanist abuse after the
controversies in Rochdale, the Orkneys and Nottingham in the early
1990s, has claimed to have evidence of at least 100 ritual murders.
Dr Peter Maxwell-Stuart, an academic at St Andrews University in
Scotland, is a specialist historian in the study of medieval witchcraft
and was sceptical about the new West claims.
But he did confirm that the idea of the “magic hand” was grounded in
16th century witchcraft history.
“Most of the talk about modern witchcraft and the occult is a load of
twaddle,” he said.
“I think it unlikely that Fred West was a member of a coven because he
doesn’t fit the bill of the modern coven member, who are usually

magic hand does have some foundation in witchcraft history, however. It
dates back to the 16th century but it refers to the cutting off of an
entire hand - not just fingers and toes.
“But there are also reports of witches grinding down the fingers and
toes or sacrifices to make powder to use for their spells or potions.
“These are things linked to the 16th and 17th century rather than
modern day witchcraft and magic.”
* In 1943 three young boys discovered the body of a murdered man in
Hagley Wood, Worcestershire, who had several fingers missing. His digits
were discovered buried some yards away from his body, and it was
believed to be a devil worship killing.
