The Beast of Jersey
Edward Paisnel
"The assailant was wearing a terrifying mask..."
The Bailiwick of Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands, and has been under British rule since the reign of William the Conqueror. The Island has since remained part of the Crown and has endured a strong British influence and a rich and colourful history, which includes the German occupation during World War II. However, by the 1950's the Islanders experienced a new terror when women and children were being preyed upon and viciously sexually assaulted by what they described as a masked man who would vanish into the night. The newspapers referred to the unknown assailant as the Beast of Jersey, and from 1957 until 1971 he managed to elude capture and would claim numerous victims before the police were finally able to unmask him.
