Background Edit

Personal Life Edit

His relationship fell apart after his fiancée found out he was abusing her young daughter (his stepdaughter), who was nine at the time. Although Massey has a history of workplace sexual harassment and served two years in Hakea Prison for soliciting (soon after his engagement ended), he remained in charge of a real estate agency in central Perth because he lied about his previous conviction. He then served five years in Casuarina for the sexual assault of one of his employees (1998-2003), after which he lost the business. Subsequently, he worked as a self-employed handyman. For a while, he was involved with a young woman who had a methamphetamine addiction. He funded her habit and kept her supply up, and in return, she didn't report the fact that she knew he was abusing her daughter. However, he was arrested for possession with intent to supply and sentenced to six and a half years in Casuarina. The Federal Police have been investigating him in connection with an Australia-wide child pornography ring with ties as far back as Project Spade.

Profile Edit

Although he is organised, his personality tends towards narcissism, with strong overtones of aggression, and he can be quite sadistic. His sexual fantasies and desires have escalated over time, leading him to become a lust killer with paedophiliac tendencies (his victims range from I to III on the Tanner scale), who derives sexual pleasure from dominance, and power over his victims. The infliction of torture, pain, and ultimately death is used in an attempt to fulfill his need. He is a lone wolf, preferring to work alone and keep the prize to himself, at least physically. However, he is an opportunistic hunter, who does not stalk his victims to learn their patterns, rather, he tends to see his prey and then go after them in a blitz attack, taking advantage of his superior height and strength. Once he has overpowered them, he takes them back to his house, where he will take explicit photographs and video of them. To dispose of the bodies, he will wrap them up in the plastic he uses as a drop sheet.
