The New Criminologist

Post by Dan the Damned » Fri Dec 16, 2005 2:40 pm

HOWDY!

To those of you coming from The New Criminologist's website - welcome!

Before our main feature, we thought you'd all like to see some funny, creepy and disturbing items we found
on the Net concerning Christopher Berry-Dee, the man behind The New Criminologist, and a guy who has a
vendetta about our little corner of the Internet.

We don't necessarily share the viewpoints of the following - its all stuff posted by others that we happened
to run across while we were bored...

Let's start with a post from slashlegal.com
Seems a UK "true-crime" author and artist who poses as an upright and
sought-after criminolgist, is actually the not-so-proud possessor of a
long criminal history.

Christopher Berry Dee has written a couple of "true crime" mass market
books and produced a video series, mostly on serial killers and murder
cases. He's also recently started up a Russian bride scam where the
unaware can buy a 'guide' to getting lucky in russia.

it all comes clear what's behind it, if one reads the newspaper
clippings listed here:

http://www.antiscam.net/data/cbd1.htm (if that doesnt work, try
http://www.antiscam.net/data/cbd2.htm )

there are 6 news clippings (follow the links below each clipping) from
various UK newspapers, showing Dee's illustrious career as a con man,
fraud and possible pedophile. He's declared bankruptcy in the past and
recently because he owes many people a huge amount of money, he's
scammed people by mail, he has done time for fraud and theft of personal
identification and bank information, and he was even picked up for
having sex with a 13 year old (those charges apparently dropped, no
doubt the girl was terrified of him. Why would she be terrorized?
Below, see the comments section for the posting on antiscam.com from
someone (nickname Dez) who claims to have known him for many years, who
wrote:

"...It does not mention the fact that this man [Christopher Berry Dee]
is an evil sadistic person. However the writer of the article has not
witnessed this side of him, and obviously can only write things that
they know to be fact. However, I have personally witnessed violent
physical and verbal abuse against females and males (however, only those
weaker than himself) by this man. I have witnessed him ruin peoples
lives. I have known him for some years on a professional and personal
level, however, am now ashamed that I ever allowed myself to have any
association with him. Beware, this man is a fraud and a conman and has
an extremely sick, violent side to his personality, perhaps helping to
explain his infatuation with murder, torture and serial killers.
His exploitation of his 21 year old Russian wife is just another example
of the sick fantasy world in which he lives. It is about time that he
was exposed and all his lies and secrets were made public... "

If one delves into the antiscam.net web, doing a search on comments
about Dee, one can read a great number of posts about what a con he has
been, written by several parties.

Dee even had the nerve to post a recommendation, attributed to the
webmaster and owner of antiscam.net, on Dee's tawdry sex website where
he's is peddling a calendar of cheesecake photos of his wife, a booklet
on sex astrology, and how to get lucky with russian babes, among other
things. The owner of antiscam.net has disavowed ever recommending any
thing Dee is involved in. On Dee's other website he proclaims himself
as a world-renowned criminologist (yet if one reads his vita, one
realizes there is no academic accomplishment, most of the works he lists
do not exist as publications, the journal he "publishes" is simply a
pay-for-it online rag--but there was a contest one could enter by
sending Dee money. Also, his "Criminal Research Institute" (CRI) is
the "publisher" of the sex manual and the calendar--now that's the work
of a REAL criminologist!) The law enforcement agencies (including the
FBI) he cites for having solved cases for them claim not to have heard
of him.

Word to US law enforcement and US prison staff--if you hear of Dee
having been cleared in to your agency or facility (he's a serial killer
groupie), you might want to mention this to your intelligence units
because NCIC might not pick up his UK crimes. The guy is definately
not on the up and up.

N
Well that was fun, wasn't it? Don't know if all that was true or not - maybe Christopher Berry-Dee can write
an expose on himself one day...

Here's a nifty article that doesn't paint Christopher in a very good light. Not only does it point out a past
bankruptcy, but it seems to imply that he swindled folks out of their hard-earned money. According to this
article, Berry-Dee admitted to having a stolen check book and using it to purchase goods.

Image

Did you enjoy that article? Nifty scarf, aye?

Now here's an odd item - it seems to say that Christopher was "remanded in custody," accused of having
sex with a 13 year old girl! Wow! Is that why he's making such a big fuss about the allegations made
against Toukee on this site? Is it because he wants everyone to think "oh, he's so against that sort of thing,
he can't possibly be a pederast, himself"??? I don't know - just a guess...

It's on the same page as another item - the kiddy sex blurb is below...

Image

Things aren't looking so good for kindly Christopher Berry-Dee...

And what's this?!? Here's another article concerning a scandal surrounding Christopher! I wonder what
this one's all about?!?

Image

And here's yet another! Will it ever end?!?

Image

Well, I'm speechless... I don't know what to say... I guess this is the point where Christopher would plug
a new book, but I got nothing...

But actually, I'd like to thank my friends at http://www.antiscam.net for providing these great archived articles.
It seems Christopher doesn't have all that many friends on the Net...

So yes, that was all sad and creepy - so lets get to the comic relief. Chistopher has been angry at some of
our members for poking fun at the way he met his wife, Tanya. Someone came across
this website for Russian Brides that included a story about Christopher.
To put it briefly, Christopher was visiting the website "strictly for research:"
As a 49-year-old criminologist, author and true-crime TV producer, I was not in this chat room to seek
love, I was there as part of a research project.
I love that opening. To me it sounds like the opening for a police report. I swear, officer I?m innocent - I was
only there as part of a research project!!!

So the story here is that Christopher was researching some story about people being scammed (something
he should know a lot about) while seeking a Russian bride, and became infatuated with Tanya's photo.

I just want to point out that we're sure Tanya is a very lovely lady. Tracey DeFeo recently spoke to her
over the phone, and found her to be charming. That's good enough for me! We just found the circumstances
funny as to how they met (on a web site where people can get a Russian bride). Maybe we're just
old-fashioned, I don't know...

Anyway, the article on their meeting can be found at http://www.womenrussia.com/story9.htm

OK, let me be the first fish to bite here Dan.
I don't think that looking for a Russian bride is that big a deal.
I think if one of my friends was looking for a Russian bride I
would first laugh my ass off, and then tell him to get out of
the house more often.

Sexual relations with a girl under 13 is a deplorable crime,
and for Christopher to be charged with that, and have the
charges later dropped is very thought provoking.
This being said, it would be nice to know WHY the charges
were dropped: Was it witness recantation? Lack of evidence?
Unbreakable alibi? Weak case? Was Christopher
exonerated during the investigation?

The fact that he was repeatedly charged with fraud-type
crimes means that in more than one judges' opinions,
Christopher Dee is a charlatan, and when multiple judges
come up with that verdict, that is good enough for me.
It means that in ANY matter where he has any
potential to profit, Christopher's opinion is worthless because
he might have ulterior motive.

Good points - I agree with you.

And BTW, thanks for including a carridge return on each sentance.
Because the newspaper clippings above are so large, they make it hard
to read posts. I did the carridge return thing in my post above as well.
It helps... :D

If I recall correctly, Dee's 13-year-old alleged victim allegedly later expired in an alleged accident. I don't believe that's exactly the same thing as 'dropping charges' against someone, PER SE. If I am allegedly wrong, please feel free to allegedly correct me :)

Billy mentioned hearing that also. That is something that sounded familiar
to me, too. But when Billy and I looked for that, we couldn't find it.
So I don't know...

I dunno......that scarf alone is criminal.

Scarves like that can be like candy to a
13 year old girl.


I just noticed that Berry Dee's wife's name was Donna Mae Dee.

MaeBerry Dee? Golly.

No wonder he is crying out slander. He doesn't want his past brought up
to everyone here. What a loon. He keeps talking about safety for the
"kids" that post here - which I believe me and Tallman are the only young
active posters - but he went to court for having sex with a 13-year-old
girl? That is so sick. He has absolutely no room to talk and I hope more of
his past comes to bite him in the ass. And by the looks of how much is in
this thread already, that may just happen soon. Let him keep running his
mouth - there are more intelligent people here who are tired of his crazy
lies. He's digging his own grave.

Oh and also Dan, I hear he's been posting your picture. He can be sued
for that. He had no permission whatsoever to use your copyright material
and he can, in fact, get in big legal trouble for that.

You should sticky this post since the link has already been
''re-adjusted" on the TNC site.

Thanks Holli.

And as far as ages of people here, I think there are at least a few others
your age that post here, but we have no real way of knowing. Through
chatting with people, it seems the average age here is 30-40, which makes
sense as we were kids when the original movie first came out.

As for making this a sticky topic, I'll leave that up to Sherb or Billy to
decide. He's now linking to George's site instead of the board.

It seems that Chris' dad died.

No matter how we dislike Chris, I think this is very sad news, and I feel
bad that this crap is going on at the same time as him losing his dad.

My sincere condolences to Chris and his family. :(

I just saw this too. I agree......all disagreements aside, I feel terrible for him losing his father.

My sincere sympathy to you and yours Chris.

I agree with Peresphone and my comment above refers to your cover up and not the death of your Father which is a terrible thing :(

Well, since TNC only links to the main AH page, I think we should occasionally bump this thread (pending any future stickiness) to keep it at the top, so it's onle of the first things a curious visitor might see if they click on the forum.

Get ready to be sicker Holli, reread the article; it actually says
"unlawful sexual intercourse with a girl UNDER 13"(my caps)
Let us not distort the public record concerning one Christopher
Dee.

It's like I said in the other thread,

As long as those articles keep getting written about this board, the clippings about Berry-Dee's sordid past
will magically appear on this forum for all to see (especially the people who he sends here from his site).

If those articles magically stop getting written, the relevant news clippings will likewise fade away into the back pages
of this board......

His choice. And if I were him, I'd be picking my battles. Right about now, in the face of such an embarassing past, I would
think he would realize that this battle isn't worth fighting.

Toukee's been buried; the clippings can be too. Your decision.....
