Stewart Murray Wilson, the serial rapist dubbed "the Beast of Blenheim" for his appalling crimes, is alleged to have raped two more women.
In an interview published on Sunday, Wilson has confirmed he's under new investigation for two offences: one in Auckland 38 years ago, and one in Hamilton 42 years ago. He denies both of them.
He said two detectives came down from Auckland to question him in November last year.
Police won't confirm this. It's against their policy to officially comment on individual cases. However, another source has also confirmed an inquiry is underway.
One of Wilson's victims said she wasn't surprised to hear he was accused of attacking more women.
"I don't think the police will ever be finished with him," she said. "He should never be allowed out, because he'll do it again. It's in his nature.
"God, he was a bloody awful person. You never trusted anything he said to you. He was a sex maniac, that guy. And I suppose he's still the same."
The now elderly woman said Wilson was the father of her adult daughter, but her daughter wasn't aware of this, and Wilson had never had anything to do with her.
"I'd hate her to know what he done to me, and what he done to the other girls. He was a strong, determined guy, and vicious. If he couldn't get sex he'd try and kill you."
When challenged about the new allegations, Wilson denied knowledge of the complainants: "No, not a clue," he said.
Former Blenheim detective Colin MacKay, who headed the 18-month investigation that led to Wilson's conviction, said Wilson would "definitely" know the women making the allegations. Throughout his offending, there had not been a single case where he was unknown to the victim.
Wilson is living in a cottage on the grounds of Whanganui prison under the strictest parole conditions in New Zealand history, following his release from Rolleston prison five years ago.
He spent two of those years back behind bars, after phoning a woman he'd been warned not to contact.
Wilson wears a GPS ankle bracelet. He goes fishing at the Whanganui river mouth, visits the local shops and attends Catholic Mass, but never leaves the prison grounds without two minders accompanying him.
They were supervising as he admitted details of the new inquiry, while fishing this week.
He continued to maintain his innocence, claiming he was "set up" by his victims, whom he has described as "nymphomaniacs and lesbians". He said the Corrections Department was holding him in limbo after his release from prison.
He wanted to live in the community and visit his 90-year-old mother in person in the South Island.
The Parole Board has previously recommended he should visit his mother in person, but the Corrections Department won't allow it.
"I want to be able to go and play bowls or play chess, be mixing in with people. It's still a punishment situation. And I haven't committed any crime."
Wilson was jailed for 21 years in 1996 for crimes against 16 women and girls. The charges covered rape, stupefying, bestiality, ill treatment of children and indecent assault. Some of the charges were representative, meaning they related to a series of offences; Wilson had at least 42 victims in total.
He was a beneficiary who groomed vulnerable women, inviting them into his home under the pretense of friendship before drugging, beating and raping them.
Wilson is under a 10-year extended supervision order (ESO), the conditions of which he has unsuccessfully challenged in court.
A Corrections spokesperson said the department was "satisfied that Stewart Murray Wilson is presently abiding by the terms of his ESO."
Asked whether his parole conditions would be extended when the ESO came to an end, the spokesperson said: "It is far too early to consider what may happen nine years from now in 2026."
MacKay said Wilson would never change. "He's got no concept of reality in my book. He's a person who simply does not accept responsibility for what he does.
