Ian Kevin Huntley b.31 Jan 1974, is a convicted double murderer in the United Kingdom. Born male, he now identifies as a woman and is an example of a dangerous and violent "transgender" person. Huntley is known as the "Soham killer" after he killed two 10-year-old schoolgirls, Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman, in 2002. Since conviction he has been confined in Frankland prison in Durham, serving a 40-year sentence. Fellow-prisoners alleged that he was interested in a sex-change in order to escape the tough Frankland prison to a "cushier" women's prison. If permission is granted, the UK National Health Service will be liable for the £100,000 costs of his sex-change surgery because of the Gender Recognition Act 2004. In 2018 it was announced that Huntley has now adopted the female name "Nicola" (sometimes otherwise said to be "Lian").   
Calculating Serial Sex Attacker
The two girls aged ten, vanished after going for a walk in August 2002. Huntley, who worked as a caretaker at the girls' school, admitted that he had seen them and even feigned grief at their disappearance. When their bodies were discovered, badly burned, and buried in a ditch, he claimed that they had come into his house and both met death by accident, a story neither the police nor the jury found plausible. It emerged that he had used a name change to conceal the fact that he had been previously charged with rape and other sex offences against underage girls while living in Humberside. His fiancée Maxine Carr made false statements in order to provide Huntley with an alibi and back up his story. When police had established that these were lies, Huntley was arrested, but since the bodies of the girls were so badly burned it was impossible to prove that they had been raped or sexually assaulted. Huntley had carefully laundered all his bedding soon after the girls disappeared. He was convicted of double murder.  Some feminist groups in UK are campaigning against criminals such as Huntley being moved into a women's prison on the grounds that the rights of the female inmates to safety take precedence over any hypothetical "rights" of a transsexual.
