The former Royal chauffeur admitted to crimes but died before police could charge him
A former chauffeur to The Queen, who admitted to sexually abusing a young boy in Buckingham Palace along with another boy at the home of a relative, has died before police could press charges.
Alwyn Stockdale, 81, admitting to attacking the ten-year-old boy and another under the age of 14 in the 1970s.
The former Royal driver was also charged with another three offenses of gross indecency on the second boy, The Sun reports.
After Stockdale admitted to sexually abusing the children, prosecutors ordered the police to press charge for the offenses.
The chauffeur’s victim, now in his 50s, informed the police Stockdale sexually abused when he was just ten years old.
Police detective took 19 months to track down Stockdale, before being led to the Royal Family where they ‘hit a brick wall’ when he mysteriously died before being charged.
Stockdale reportedly lived in the Royal Household quarters at Buckingham Palace mews at time of the attacks, but late relocated to a cottage on the Windsor estate.
His second attack took place at the West Yorkshire home of a relative of one of the boys, who was also a servant to the Royal Family but was utterly oblivious to the atrocious crime.
“The victims are understandably upset that Stockdale will not face justice,” one source said.
“They’ve lived with what he did all their adult lives.
“There are questions over why it took so long for police to identify and get round to questioning Stockdale,” they added.
“Given his age, it was a race against time to bring him to justice.”
“But like Jimmy Savile and the MP Cyril Smith, he died before that could happen.”
The horrific case resembles that of former UK DJ Jimmy Savile, who was knighted by the Queen and a friend of the Royal Family.
Saville died before police could charge him and also named the royal family in an interview with police but was later covered-up.
The UK Metropolitan Police confirmed they are aware of the reports, but refused to comment.
Buckingham Palace also refused to comment.
