The wife of Da Vinci Rapist Robert Greens’ brother has begged people to stop hounding her family so that her sick husband can live out his final days in peace.
Lee Greens, who is married to monster Greens’ twin Richard, shared her plea online after local rumors surfaced that the vile thug had been released from prison and moved into his brother’s home in Hawick.
It came after locals reacted to unconfirmed reports that a sex offender has been rehoused in the area.
Posting online, 42-year-old Lee said: “I am Richard’s wife of 25 years. Robert doesn’t live here, he lives in the jail.
“Yes, Robert has done wrong, but all Richard has ever done is look like him.
“He is not even allowed in the same town as him. When he gets out we will know, but we don’t know anything yet.
“Can everyone stop posting stuff like this? If you have a problem then message me about it.
“My husband is seriously ill. He has not got long left. We don’t need this, we just want a quiet life.
“We would like some peace from this hell that has followed us for the last 16 years.”
The Scottish Prison Service confirmed today that 44-year-old Greens remains behind bars.
The beast was dubbed the Da Vinci rapist for his horrific 2005 attack on a young female student near Rosslyn Chapel in Midlothian, a key location in the book The Da Vinci Code.
His 19-year-old victim suffered horrific injuries, which were initially thought to have been as a result of a car crash.
The woman had been on a sightseeing visit to the chapel but got lost. She was walking to a friend’s house in nearby Bonnyrigg when she was set upon by Greens. He threw her down a steep embankment, then savagely beat and raped her.
Hardened detectives said it was one of the worst rapes they had seen and could have resulted in murder.
At his High Court trial for the attack in 2006, Robert tried to blame his twin brother Richard.
His lawyer said in court that both identical twins shared the same DNA but this was rejected by the court.
Afterwards Richard said he had forgiven his brother for trying to blame him, and insisted he would be standing by him.
Speaking at the time, Richard said: “I know what he has done but I will stand by him. I love him to bits.”
But he later severed ties with his brother after he visited him in jail and failed to get answers about why he had blamed him for the vicious crime.
Richard said: “I said if he did not give me answers, I would not speak to him again. He did not give me answers and so I have not.”
Six years later, in 2012, Richard Greens told the Daily Record how he was attacked by a vigilante masked gang who held him at a gunpoint after mistaking him for his brother.
The dad-of-five said his life has been wrecked by his brother’s brutal crime.
He said: “I wish I could get a new face. I hate him for what he has done to me. I don’t have a life any more.”
He also told how in the months following the rape, he and his wife had to flee one town and they had a petrol bomb lobbed at another home.
He added: “I am watching my back 24/7. I am scared all the time. Everywhere I go, all I hear is ‘beast, beast’.”
Wife Lee also added: “Robert’s a predator and I hate him. I really wish he would die.”
Robert Greens was freed from prison in 2012 under the automatic early release system, having served two-thirds of his sentence. But the following year, he was back behind bars after he broke one of the conditions of his release from him by visiting the home town of his former wife.
He was again released in 2017 but hauled back to prison after another breach of his release conditions.
