The disturbing allegations were made against 40-year-old Geoffrey Portway, who pled guilty in May to distribution and possession of child pornography. Prosecutors say he will at least serve 27 years in prison, according to CNN.

According to police, Portway went by the name “Fat Longpig” online, where he exchanged thousands of images and videos of child pornography with others. Some of these allegedly included images of children being cooked and prepared to be eaten.

When authorities searched Portway’s home, they reportedly found a locked basement with a staircase leading to a soundproof room.

There they would also find a metal cage, a rusted steel table, along with various metal bondage equipment.

A coffin made of plywood was reportedly found nearby.

Transcripts obtained by The Huffington Post include “extremely graphic descriptions of his plans to rape, kill and each children,” as well as a description of his dungeon.

“Really want to eat a nice young boy. Setting [up] my basement,” Portway said in one 2010 chat. He goes on to describe his “setup” as a “locked basement, has a cage, has a table to tie people to, working on sound proofing now.”

In the online conversations, Portway also reportedly discussed fattening up his victims while keeping them caged.

There is a ”whole [sic] in it for head to come out for feedings. :) … [the victim will be] sticking his little head, gag in place, through the hole :) if he is young enough, he will be sitting on my lap when i feed him. but if older, the hole will work.”

Portway’s lawyer, Richard J. Sweeney, however, told CNN that the man never actually hurt a child.

“There’s no evidence at all of Geoffrey being involved with any child or harming any child,” he said.

Portway is scheduled to be sentenced on September 17.

“Portway has pled guilty to some of the most vile and heinous crimes known to our society,” federal prosecutors wrote in a sentencing recommendation.
