Published September 16, 2014 by misty534


A documentary about a Tamworth self-styled paedophile hunter is due to be televised on Channel 4 next month.

The documentary which features Stinson Hunter, who grew up and went to school in the town, will be aired on Wednesday, October 1 at 10pm.

Not only did he make the announcement about the documentary, called The Paedophile Hunter, this morning, he also officially revealed his identity.

Throughout all of his online work, the 32-year-old kept his identity a secret, and his army of follows have only ever heard his voice.

But, on the YouTube clip people finally get to see what he looks like

Speaking to the News about the documentary, which has been 18 months in the making, Stinson warned that he is more than aware that it may split opinion.

“I am not a saint, I have never hidden the fact that I have got a past and I know there is going to be some backlash,” he said.

“But it’s not about me, it has never been about me, it’s been about the work that we have been doing and getting the message across about what happens on line.

“I hope that the documentary makes people sit up and realise what is going on, and what some people do when they are online.”

The documentary airs nine days before Stinson’s birthday and is a present he has been waiting for: “This documentary has been a long time coming. We started it and then I got ran over, and that was a real turning point for me as I could have died, and I decided then that I want to do something to make a difference,” he said.

Hunter, who went to Wilnecote High School, told the Herald that despite not being born in the town “it will always be home”. Previously, In an exclusive interview, he told how in 1999 he started a blaze in the cloakroom of the school following an argument with his girlfriend. “I was just a kid and I was stupid,” he said.
