The sex offender known as the Beast of Blenheim has had his first morning outside prison in more than 18 years.
Stewart Murray Wilson arrived at his new property on the grounds of Whanganui Prison at around 6am this morning and has remained inside since.
He has been going through an induction process to make sure he knows what he can or can’t do.
Wilson is in a four-bedroom unit which is furnished with single beds, a couch and a TV with channels1, 2, 3 and 4 if reception allows.
He has access to a cellphone so Corrections can contact him if his GPS shows he is
Correction services general manager says Brendan Anstiss says there were no celebrations when Wilson left prison.
“He’s very apprehensive about his release and he has no intention of seeking to go into the community in the near future. That’s consistent with our planning, he’s happy to stay just where he is at the moment.”
Wilson will be shifted to a two bedroom state house in about a month.
Last night the Wanganui District Council granted resource consent for the house to be installed on prison grounds.
A press conference this afternoon is expected to reveal more conditions of Wilson’s parole.

End of the day he is still a NZer. Not one to be proud of but a NZer none-the-less.

News media should be ashamed of themselves. Shamefully beating a man in chains. It is not I or those I know dehumanizing him but the media, it is the media making him known as the beast not the public. Perhaps you should have a good look at yourselved

I imagine he would be pretty apprehensive about leaving his new home for some time because he knows what he did was very very wrong, he's paid the price but probably still feels a noose round his neck from all the public outcry. Time will heel as it does.
