A CANCER-stricken old man is beaten to death with his walking stick — his final moments horrifically captured on camera.
Victim ... Reginald Baker
Defenceless Reginald Baker, 75, was slaughtered by a gang of merciless brutes who burst into his bungalow to rob him.
The frail pensioner was knifed, tortured and beaten as the monsters demanded his savings.
Terrified Reg pleaded for his life — explaining cops had told him to put his money in the Post Office after a burglar robbed him of £2,300 weeks earlier.
As he died in agony — EVERY single rib smashed — the killers had no idea police had also installed a CCTV camera.

Yesterday two of the sick thugs were jailed for life after a jury convicted them of murdering the ex-water board worker in Landford, Wilts.
Joby Barney, 25, of Alderholt, Hants, was caged for a minimum of 30 years.
Pal John James, 19, of Salisbury, Wilts, was told to serve at least 28.
Two others who admitted manslaughter will be sentenced later.
Winchester Crown Court judge John Royce branded the murder “grotesque”.
He said: “Mr Baker was obviously frail and lived a simple life in his small bungalow, surrounded by his Airfix models and family photos.
“What took place defies belief in any civilised society."
The pensioner, who had prostate cancer, was also stabbed in the face, his finger almost sliced off and his back broken.
The gang then went boozing “without a care in the world”.
Reg’s cousin George Andreae said after the trial: “This was a terrible crime against an old man who just wanted to live in peace.”
