Austin, Texas: 'Paedophile hunter' feels no guilt for Harlow man's suicide following online grooming sting
A self-styled paedophile hunter says he feels no guilt over the suicide of a man caught on camera allegedly attempting to meet up with a 14-year-old girl.
Christopher Wood, who goes by the name of Catfish the Hunter to ensnare suspected sex offenders and groomers, has come under criticism for his actions after the death of Harlow man Terry Hurford.
Posing as a teenage girl online, Mr Wood says Mr Hurford agreed to meet what he thought was a young girl.
Mr Hurford took his own life three days after being arrested on suspicion of grooming.
"I see what I do as a duty," said Mr Wood.
"I meet the people and upload the videos so that other people can see what these guys are doing and so they can keep their children away from them.
"I know that what I'm doing is 100 per cent within the law but a lot of people think it is morally wrong.
"My heart is in the right place and I'm trying to do some good."
Mr Wood, a 23-year-old father-of-two, first created his fake profile as a 14-year-old girl just four months ago, following a move from Yorkshire to Essex.
He adopted the alias of Catfish the Hunter and quickly amassed a large social media following.
"The area I moved into wasn't the nicest," he added.
"I have got two young children myself and at first, I would let them play out a bit, but quickly, I had a lot of people telling me to be extremely careful because a lot of sex offenders got released back into that area.
"In Huddersfield, I felt safe where I lived and never had any of these concerns, but in a completely new place with all these rumours, I tried to do some research.
"There was nothing at all I could find about convicted sex offenders and we as parents, have a right to know who we should be safe-guarding our children from.
"I could become friends with my next door neighbour and they could be a sex offender without me knowing."
Mr Wood took to patrolling chat websites and dating site Badoo in the hope of attracting predators, but is adamant that what he is doing is not entrapment, and he always waits for the man to make the first move.
"Badoo is an over-18s website, and obviously a lot of people would say that children would not go on something for over-18s, but it's totally false.
"When I have been on there, one or two of every ten people you come across would be 14 or 15.
"You have to be 18 to smoke or to drink, but children do that underage, and there is no security on those websites at all.
"The guys will always ask me questions first, and I will reply."
While he currently estimates that he is in conversation with up to 20 men, some of them "for weeks and weeks at a time", by far his most high-profile case was that of Mr Hurford, who was filmed meeting Catfish after driving from Harlow to Canvey Island in the early hours of the morning, allegedly planning to meet a 14-year-old girl.
He was at arrested at the scene on suspicion of grooming when police were called to Thorney Bay Caravan Park in Canvey Island.
Three days later, after being released on bail, he hanged himself.
And while Mr Wood sympathises with the 44-year-old's family – and two young children – he stands by his controversial methods.
"I have had people on the Facebook page calling me a murderer, saying I should be hanged," he added.
"I really do feel sorry for his family, but I don't feel like I'm guilty for whatever happened to him and what I'm doing is with a good heart.
"I didn't instigate the messages, I didn't instigate the meeting, and I didn't instigate his suicide.
"As much as I never comprehended anything like this happening, I hold myself to the highest professional standards I possibly can.
"I feel awful for his two children; I have children myself and I can't comprehend how difficult it will be for them growing up without a father."
Two videos of their encounter, in which Mr Wood questions Mr Hurford on his intentions and relays their online conversations, were uploaded to the internet on May 28.
And since Mr Hurford's death, Chris took to the Catfish page to hold an online question-and-answer session in an attempt to justify his actions.
"He drove miles from Harlow in the totally opposite direction to meet up with a 14-year-old girl," he said.
"Why would he drive 40 minutes out of the way to meet someone who he didn't know? He wanted to make sure that it was a real girl he was meeting up with.
"I can't say for sure what he was going to do, but I know what I believe he was going to do.
"What bothers me is when people come on Facebook and comment, when they have only heard the wrong side of the story.
"I want closure so the family can have some closure.
"What happened was a tragedy but Terry had problems.
"His death has made me think long and hard about what I'm doing. I don't feel any guilt over what happened, but I certainly don't want it to happen again.
"What happened with Terry Hurford really shocked me, but I do believe I'm what I'm doing and what I'm saying."
While he has vowed to carry on seeking to expose alleged sex offenders across the county, Chris, who lives in Canvey Island, is willing to make some concessions to avoid a similar scenario unfolding in the future.
"I'm going to keep on uploading the videos but I will blur the faces until they have been through the courts and been found guilty," he said.
"The police are bound by red tape and entrapment laws so I'm not going to stop doing what I'm doing; I'm not doing anything illegal or wrong.
"When I was 14, if anyone wanted to contact me, they would ring my home phone or come and knock on my door, so my parents knew exactly who I was speaking to.
"Now, 12 and 13-year-olds are on the internet so anyone in the world can influence that child, with grooming or indecent messages or images."
Mr Hurford's family declined to comment when they were approached by the Chronicle's sister paper, The Harlow Star.
Essex Police is investigating Mr Hurford's death. Enquiries are ongoing to see if any "third parties" committed any offences.

Las Vegas, Nevada: Notorious paedophile killed himself after inmates took out 'contracts' on him, inquest hears
One of the UK’s most notorious paedophiles killed himself in his prison cell after fellow inmates took out “contracts” to attack him, an inquest has heard.
James King, who was also known as Robin Hollyson, was just four months into a 24-year sentence for filming himself raping a three-month old baby when he was found unconscious in his cell at HMP Bristol in January.
He was rushed to Southmead Hospital in the city where he died two days later.
Two suicide notes were found at the scene but suspicions were raised when his cellmate, Cona Ellis, was found “covered in blood” and wearing King’s watch.
Ellis, who raised the alarm, told police that he was asleep and had been woken by “gargling noises” but it was later alleged that he had told prison officer Mike Simmonds he had watched King hang himself but had no involvement.
No charges have been filed and Avon and Somerset Police have deemed the death non-suspicious.
Fellow prisoner John Denham told the jury inquest at Avon Coroners Court that inmates had been taking out “contracts” to hurt King and had threatened to pour hot water on him or give him a “black eye or two”.
His mother, Deborah Wyatt, also gave a statement saying the former IT worker was subject to verbal bullying by the other prisoners and said he feared he may be attacked with a sugar and hot water solution – known as sugaring – which can cause painful burns, the Bristol Post reported.
During one visit, she said he had told her one of his co-defendants had been sugared and he “suggested to us that the attack on Matthew was intended for him”.
King was one of a group of men who were convicted for abusing babies and very young children and distributing the pictures online in October 2015.
The court heard that King had suffered from anxiety and depression which got worse due to the press coverage of his conviction and he had previously attempted suicide.
But the prison chaplain said the 31-year-old had been more positive up until his death after he began bible classes and got a prison job.
After four hours of deliberation the jury recorded a verdict of suicide.
