Medomsley Detention Centre: 64 new 'victims' come forward
Date published: 26th September 2013
Det Supt Paul Goundry said: "We have 64 victims to date. That number is growing and will no doubt grow again."
Church minister Husband, who worked at the detention centre as a prison officer, was jailed for 12 years in 2003 for the abuse which is said to have happened between 1974 and 1984.
Johnson, a store man, was sentenced to six years in 2005.
Both are now dead.
Durham Police said "almost two dozen" victims were known to police in the original investigation. Sixty four alleged victims have come forward since it reopened.
Det Supt Goundry said police were looking for other potential victims, abusers and "potentially senior management turning a blind eye".
"We will go where the evidence takes us," he said.
"It's heartbreaking. The young men who were sent to Medomsley potentially only had one offence, their first offence, and if you came under the care of Neville Husband there was every possibility you would be sexually abused and raped."
