A paedophile has been found dead in his cell a year after being sent to prison, Graham Scobie, 52, had almost 100 sickening pictures at his home in Irvine, Ayrshire, but was spared jail in February 2019.
A court was told he used ten Facebook profiles to lure young boys into sexual chats, and would often travel to Glasgow to watch youngsters in parks and museums.
He was given a Sexual Offences Prevention Order (SOPO) but was later caught again when officers inspected his laptop.
Law enforcement discovered more sickening abuse images, which included a boy being raped by a man. Scobie also admitted using an adult webcam site against the terms of his court sentence.
He was jailed for 26 months last March, but it has now emerged he died in HMP Dumfries. Prison chiefs said a fatal accident inquiry will be launched following Scobie’s death on April 11.

During Scobie’s trial, prosecutor Kirsty Urquhart said: ‘He has admitted to having deviant sexual interests, in particular an interest in young teenage boys.
‘He has victim access. He goes out most days and travels to Glasgow from Irvine when he spends his days walking around parks, Kelvingrove Park in particular, and going to museums.
‘He repeatedly puts himself in situations where he could come in to contact with children. ‘His laptop has been examined by police and there is evidence that he accessed porn on a daily basis, especially barely legal and young males.’
A spokesperson for the Scottish Prison Service said: ‘Graham Robert Scobie, 52, a prisoner from HMP Dumfries has died on April 11, 2021.
‘He was convicted at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court in 2020. Police Scotland have been advised and the matter reported to the Procurator Fiscal.
‘A Fatal Accident Inquiry will be held in due course.’
