Graphic, triggering...

Du Pont heir accused of raping 2nd child in lawsuit
Chris Barrish, The (Wilmington, Del.) News Journal 2:37 p.m. EDT March 18, 2014

WILMINGTON, Del. — A du Pont family heir who raped his 3-year-old daughter nearly a decade ago but received no prison time now faces a lawsuit from his former wife that accuses him of sexually abusing his toddler son.

Robert H. Richards IV, 47, who is supported by a trust fund and who paid $1.8 million for his 5,800-square-foot mansion near Winterthur Museum, pleaded guilty in 2008 to fourth-degree rape of his daughter. Currently on probation, he has never been charged with crimes against his son.

The lawsuit provides in-depth details about a child rape case that Delaware authorities never disclosed publicly and did not receive media attention.

Richards is a scion of two prominent Delaware families — the du Pont family who built the chemical empire and the Richards family who co-founded the prestigious corporate law firm Richards Layton & Finger. Du Pont family patriarch Irenee du Pont is his great grandfather. His father, Robert H. Richards III, was a partner in the law firm until his 2008 retirement.

Currently unemployed, Richards IV also lists a home in the exclusive North Shores neighborhood near Rehoboth Beach as a residence, according to the state's sex abuse registry.

On Tuesday, nearly six years after Richards' felony conviction, his ex-wife, Tracy Richards, filed a Superior Court lawsuit on behalf of her children seeking compensatory and punitive damages for assault, negligence, and intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress on his two children. Abuse of the children occurred at both the Greenville and North Shores homes, the lawsuit alleged.

Tracy Richards is scheduled to appear at a news conference about the case with her lawyers at their downtown office later Tuesday. She is represented by the Jacobs & Crumplar law firm that sued the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington over sex abuse by priests and with other lawyers won a $77.4 million settlement for victims.

The lawsuit claims that Richards raped his daughter, now 11, in 2005 when she was 3. Several times, he entered her bedroom at night while she slept and penetrated her with his fingers while masturbating, said the lawsuit, which includes documents from the criminal case.

Richards told the girl "to keep what he had done to her a secret," but in October 2007 she told her grandmother, who informed Tracy Richards, the lawsuit said. The girl was taken to her pediatrician, whom she told about the abuse, and New Castle County police arrested him that December.

The Child-Rape Assembly Line
In Ritual Bathhouses of the Jewish Orthodoxy, Children Are Systematically Abused

By Christopher Ketcham

Rabbi Nuchem Rosenberg—who is 63 with a long, graying beard—recently sat down with me to explain what he described as a “child-rape assembly line” among sects of fundamentalist Jews. He cleared his throat. “I’m going to be graphic,” he said.

A member of Brooklyn’s Satmar Hasidim fundamentalist branch of Orthodox Judaism, Nuchem designs and repairs mikvahs in compliance with Torah Law. The mikvah is a ritual Jewish bathhouse used for purification. Devout Jews are required to cleanse themselves in the mikvah on a variety of occasions: Women must visit following menstruation, and men have to make an appearance before the High Holidays, such as Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Many of the devout also purify themselves before and after the act of sex and before the Sabbath.

On a visit to Jerusalem in 2005, Rabbi Rosenberg entered into a mikvah in one of the holiest neighborhoods in the city, Mea She’arim. “I opened a door that entered into a schvitz,” he told me. “Vapors everywhere, I can barely see. My eyes adjust, and I see an old man, my age, long white beard, a holy-looking man, sitting in the vapors. On his lap, facing away from him, is a boy, maybe seven years old. And the old man is having anal sex with this boy.”

Rabbi Rosenberg paused, gathered himself, and went on: “This boy was speared on the man like an animal, like a pig, and the boy was saying nothing. But on his face—fear. The old man [looked at me] without any fear, as if this was common practice. He didn’t stop. I was so angry, I confronted him. He removed the boy from his penis, and I took the boy aside. I told this man, ‘It’s a sin before God, a mishkovzucher. What are you doing to this boy’s soul? You’re destroying this boy!’ He had a sponge on a stick to clean his back, and he hit me across the face with it. ‘How dare you interrupt me!’ he said. I had heard of these things for a long time, but now I had seen.”

Aron Kestecher, Melbourne molestation suspect, dies in apparent suicide

March 28, 2014 10:44am

SYDNEY, Australia (JTA) – Aron “Ezzy” Kestecher, a former Chabad-Lubavitch youth leader in Melbourne who was accused of child sex crimes, died in a suspected suicide.

Kestecher, 28, was found dead in his apartment Thursday. He was accused of multiple allegations of child sex abuse against minors and was due to face court in June, police confirmed Friday.

Rabbi Meir Shlomo Kluwgant, president of the Rabbinical Council of Victoria, said he visited the family on Thursday.

“I provided a measure of support and comfort to his family members and his close friends, as well as the first responders to this most tragic of events,” he said. “The deceased was a very special young man, but he was also deeply troubled.”

The websites Crownheights.info and shmais.com both posted death notices expressing their “profound sadness, deep pain and shock.”

David Werdiger, a grandson of one of the founders of Chabad in Melbourne, published a post about the “terrible tragedy” on Facebook, taking aim at those he claimed may have encouraged his death.

“Those who helped publicize said alleged sins, who facilitated or conducted trial by media, who acted in a heavy-handed way without thinking about the many possible consequences (or who ignored the obvious consequences following their actions) need to consider to what extent their ‘actions’ contributed to this terrible outcome,” he wrote.

Four charges of indecent acts by Kestecher against minors were withdrawn in 2012, but additional alleged victims came forward last year with one claim of sexual penetration against a child under 16 and of indecent acts with a child, resulting in the beginning of legal proceedings.

Kestecher taught at Yeshivah College, which has been at the center of the child sex abuse scandal inside Melbourne’s Jewish community. Two of its former employees – David Kramer and David Cyprys – were jailed last year for multiple sex crimes against more than a dozen children.

Child Predator
Help Us Identify John Doe 28

04/02/14

The FBI is seeking the public’s help to stop a child predator.

The unidentified individual we are seeking is known only as John Doe 28. Video of the man engaging in sexually explicit activities with a young boy was discovered online in November 2012 by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), an organization that works closely with the Bureau to stop child predators.

The video contains a brief image of the alleged predator, which investigators hope will lead to his identification—and the recovery of the exploited child. “Subjects who show their faces in child pornography are not typical,” said Special Agent Karen Jurden. “It is our hope that someone will recognize this individual and come forward. We were able to recover a very clear image of John Doe 28.”

Working with NCMEC, investigators in our Violent Crimes Against Children program have enhanced other details from the video that could be clues to help identify the suspect. For example, the video shows the individual and the victim inside a residence with what appears to be a blue chair and a picture hanging on a wall in the background. Someone familiar with the house might easily recognize the chair. Also, John Doe 28 is wearing wire-framed glasses and a burgundy T-shirt with a fish logo on it.

There are no details linking the suspect to a particular area, but Jurden said investigators believe he may be a U.S. citizen because he speaks one word during the video—“careful”—which is in English.

“Sometimes we will get some type of identifier that narrows down the geographic region,” said Jurden, who has been investigating crimes against children for the last four years, “but that didn’t happen in this case. That’s why we are asking for the public’s help nationwide.”

The video is just over two minutes long and was recovered during the arrest of a San Francisco man on child pornography charges. “The video was part of his collection,” Jurden added, explaining that sexually explicit videos and images of children are often traded anonymously through online forums.

The efforts to identify and apprehend John Doe 28 are part of the FBI’s Operation Rescue Me and Endangered Child Alert Program (ECAP) initiatives and represent a longstanding partnership with NCMEC. Operation Rescue Me identifies child victims of sexual exploitation by using sophisticated image analysis to obtain evidence. ECAP seeks public and media assistance to help identify the John and Jane Does who display their faces—and other distinguishing characteristics such as tattoos—in pornographic images and videos of children.

Since the inception of ECAP in 2004, 28 John/Jane Does have been investigated; 20 of these cases have been successfully resolved so far. These investigations have led to the identification of nearly 70 child victims.

We need your help. John Doe 28 appears to be a Caucasian male in his 30s or 40s who has a receding hairline and wears wire-framed glasses. Anyone with information should submit a tip online or call the FBI’s toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI.

“We need to identify John Doe 28,” Jurden said, “so we can make sure no harm comes to that little boy.”

Crisis, mystery unfold after pedophile teacher kills himself in MN
Michael Weissenstein and Tami Abdollah Associated Press
POSTED: 05/13/2014 06:24:34 AM CDT
UPDATED: 05/13/2014 12:13:45 PM CDT

He was one of the most beloved teachers in the small world of international schools that serve the children of diplomats, well-off American expatriates and local elites. He was often the first to arrive in the morning, and the last to leave each day. He led students on class trips to exotic places, treating them to cookies and milk at bedtime.
That was the public persona of William Vahey, carefully crafted over four decades until a maid cleaning his home in Nicaragua stole a 16-gigabyte memory drive. There, in photograph after photograph, was evidence that the model teacher had molested scores of adolescent boys, possibly more, in a career spanning 10 schools on four continents.


In this Wednesday, May 7, 2014 photo, a security guard is reflected in a car mirror in front of the house where U.S. citizen William James Vahey lived, near the American Nicaraguan School in Managua, Nicaragua where he worked as teacher from 2013-2014. Vahey, 64, killed himself on March 21, 2014 - two days after agents in Houston filed for a warrant to search a computer thumb drive that belonged to him. The storage device contained pornographic images of at least 90 boys, ages 12 to 14, who appeared to be drugged and unconscious, according to the FBI. (AP Photo/Esteban Felix) (Esteban Felix/AP)
The discovery of a man the FBI regards as one of the most prolific pedophiles in memory has set off a crisis in the close-knit community of international schools, where horrified parents are being told their children may have been victims of a favorite teacher, and administrators are scurrying to close teacher-vetting loopholes revealed by Vahey's abuses.

"With the sheer volume, the sheer number of incidents in which this man molested, it surprises me that somehow this was not picked up by someone," said John Magagna, the founding director of Search Associates, the world's largest international school recruiting firm. "I don't know what went wrong."

Apparently not even Vahey's victims knew they had been molested. The double-cream Oreos that he handed out at bedtime on the overnight trips were laced with sleeping pills — enough to leave the boys unconscious as he touched them, and posed them for lewd photographs.

Vahey, a 64-year-old native of West Point, New York, attempted suicide in Nicaragua after his maid stole the drive. He survived, but killed himself on a second try, stabbing himself to death in Minnesota on March 21 and leaving hundreds of former students wondering if they were abused.

The agonized father of a student in Caracas, Venezuela, said his son, like many others, would rather not find out, but the boy cannot forget one fact. "He ate the cookies, too," said the father, who spoke on condition of anonymity to protect his son's identity. "Everyone on those trips did."

There were decades of missed opportunities to expose Vahey. An early California sex-abuse conviction didn't prevent him taking a series of jobs working with children. Colleagues and supervisors failed to question why he was so often with boys overnight. And at least twice, boys fell mysteriously ill while under his care and there was no investigation into Vahey's role.

(AP Photo) NO SALES (Mark Turnage/ap)
In 1969, Vahey, the son of a decorated World War II pilot, was arrested on child sexual abuse charges after police said he pinched the penises of eight boys, ages 7 to 9, at an Orange County high school where he gave swimming lessons.

Vahey, then 20, told authorities he had started touching boys without their consent at age 14, when he fondled a sleeping teen on a Boy Scout camping trip. He said he touched the genitals or anuses of sleeping boys four more times before the arrest.

The psychiatrist diagnosed Vahey with an "inadequate personality," but added that the disorder did not predispose him to sexual offenses dangerous to others. The court even allowed Vahey to start work as a public school teacher's aide after his arrest.

Vahey pleaded guilty to a single charge of lewd and lascivious behavior. He received a 90-day jail sentence and five years' probation, with a condition that he should be supervised in the company of males younger than 16 during that time. After two years on probation, he was allowed to leave the country unsupervised following college graduation in 1972.

Such leniency was common at the time, said Dan Scott, a retired detective sergeant who worked for 26 years with the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department office that investigates child abuse. "Nobody went after sex offenders."


Vahey was required to register as a sex offender and update his address whenever he moved, but he never updated his information after the first time he registered and authorities didn't pursue the matter. When the state registry was put online in 2004, his name wasn't included because authorities discovered he was no longer living in California.

Vahey began his international teaching career with a year at the American School in Tehran in the run-up to Iran's oil boom, the first in a series of stays around the Middle East and Europe. He taught history, social studies and related subjects in Lebanon, Spain, Iran again, Greece and then Saudi Arabia, almost always to middle school students.

By the time he arrived in Saudi Arabia, Vahey was married and had two sons with Jean Vahey, a woman who became a widely respected administrator in international education. He taught eighth- and ninth-grade social studies, coached boys' basketball and led school trips to Bahrain, Turkey and Africa.

Halfway through his 12-year stay in Saudi Arabia, he received a principal's certificate in New Jersey. It was March 1986, seven months before a law took effect requiring all new teachers and administrators to undergo background checks. New Jersey Education Department spokesman Mike Yaple said there is no record of Vahey undergoing a check before he got the certificate.

In Saudi Arabia, Vahey displayed an openness and concern for children that people would remark upon for the rest of his career, said Max Crum, a 38-year-old former student.

"When you're a kid, and you have teachers who are stern and mean, you kind of fear them. He wasn't that at all," Crum said.

By 1992, Vahey and his wife moved to the prestigious Jakarta International School in Indonesia, where he again taught social studies, coached basketball and developed a reputation for leading fun overnight trips for students.

"All the kids seemed to really, really like him," said Will Julius, a 21-year-old alumnus and son of a former longtime International School teacher.

After 10 years the Vaheys moved to Escuela Campo Alegre in Venezuela, where Jean became superintendent and the man known to all as Bill took a teaching job at the sprawling hillside campus overlooking the capital, Caracas.

All new hires were required to provide a police record from either their home of record or their last country of assignment, if they had been there for more than five years. Vahey presented one from Indonesia with no history of problems.

Again in Venezuela, the popular teacher and family man took students on trips

Authorities may have missed a warning sign when two students under Vahey's care were rushed to a hospital after falling unconscious in their hotel room during a trip to a basketball game, parents and staff said. A toxicity test came back negative, so the school sent security officials to investigate. They were unable to determine a cause and chalked the incident up to a possible failing air conditioning unit. Vahey was not investigated.

Vahey also privately organized outings like a week-long annual trip to Costa Rica for some 20 to 25 students, parents and staff said.

Superintendent Gregory Hedger said that when he arrived he was surprised to learn such excursions were allowed. He put an immediate stop to trips not sponsored by the school and without parent chaperones.

Seven years later, the Vaheys went to work at the Westminster campus of London's Southbank International School, which has about 350 pupils from 70 countries. Vahey was subjected to two criminal background checks in the United Kingdom, where he hadn't lived before.

After a year, Vahey founded the "Travel Club," according to a 2012 article in Focus, a magazine for expatriates in London. The school's website describes a 13-day trip to Nepal in 2012 that included a trek in the Himalayas, white-water rafting and an elephant safari. In 2013, the spring break trip by students in grades six to nine was to Panama.

Southbank's chair of governors, Chris Woodhead, told Britain's Press Association there had been one complaint against Vahey. A boy on a trip felt sick, Woodhead said, and Vahey took the child into his room, apparently "to look after him."

"A few months later a teacher heard gossiping on a minibus and the incident was investigated," Woodhead said. "The boy's parents agreed that there was nothing untoward and the matter shouldn't be pursued."

When Vahey went on to the American Nicaraguan School with glowing references, his wife stayed in London.

In Nicaragua, Vahey taught ninth-grade world history and advanced geography in such an exciting way that students asked why other teachers couldn't do the same. He drew little notice from his neighbors until days before Thanksgiving.

That weekend, after Vahey's maid was fired for stealing, he stopped leaving the house, said Rafael, a caretaker who declined to give his last name because of the sensitivity of the topic. All Sunday, the house was dark. On Monday, school employees who let themselves in with a master key found Vahey motionless in his bed.

Two groups of emergency officials declared him dead and called the coroner. The school's director, Gloria Doll, sent teachers and parents a message saying Vahey "will be greatly missed, as he has truly been an integral part of our community."

But as a black body bag was being unloaded, Rafael said, a police officer or paramedic let out a shout. Vahey was alive.

A doctor at the hospital where he was taken said he had a weak pulse and high levels of blood toxins, but could go home after two days. The doctor spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the matter.

"All we know is that he is still with us, and that is wonderful, miraculous news," Doll wrote to the school later that day.

Vahey told colleagues he had been bitten by a poisonous spider. In early December, he sent a mass email message to the school, declaring that "it is with a sense of awe, wonder and joy that I find myself writing to you. The last week has been quite the adventure, and I am fortunate to say I am doing much better."

He was headed to Atlanta for medical tests, Vahey wrote. "Get ready for an exciting second semester as I look forward to my return to the school in January."

In early March, the maid reappeared and handed the USB drive to Doll, saying she should take a look. Its folders were marked with the names and dates of school trips dating to 2008: "Panama Trip," ''Costa Rica Trip," ''Basketball Trip" and "Spring 2013."

Doll clicked on the last folder, where she found photos of unconscious boys, many blonde or red-headed and between the ages of 12 and 14. Some had their pants off, with a man's hand touching their testicles or anus. Other boys were posed together in positions suggesting oral sex.

Doll confronted Vahey, who told her, according to an FBI affidavit, that he had given the boys sleeping pills, adding: "I was molested as a boy, that is why I do this. I have been doing this my whole life."

Vahey said he had swallowed more than 100 sleeping pills in November after discovering the USB drive had been taken.

Doll demanded Vahey's resignation, according to the affidavit.

Vahey flew to Atlanta the next day. It was only after he boarded that the school notified authorities at the U.S. Embassy in Managua, U.S. officials said. The U.S. officials immediately notified Nicaraguan police, but Vahey had left the country.

In Miami, where he changed planes, a special agent from the FBI notified Vahey of the investigation. But a bag check turned up nothing illegal, and the agents had no grounds on which to hold him.

By March 14, the school told parents Vahey had resigned. The teacher traveled to Luverne, Minnesota, where his brother, sister-in-law and mother live, the latter in a nursing home. He checked into a hotel where he fatally stabbed himself in the chest with a knife.

He left a note apologizing to his family.

"He's one of the most prolific pedophiles that we've seen here due to the sheer numbers," FBI Special Agent Sharon Dunlap said.

At least 60 of the 90 or so children in the images were from the Southbank school, according to police, where a significant number of parents said they did not want to know if their children were abused. Woodhead, the governor, has blamed the U.S. system.

"How did he qualify as a teacher in the United States, how is it this information was never available to any of the schools across the world who employed him over the next 40 years?" he asked in an interview with the Press Association.

In Venezuela, students are coming forward with details that suggest they may have been abused.

"We don't know who was drugged. Right now we're just listening," superintendent Hedger said. "There's an enormous sense of betrayal ... He was one of the most popular, if not the most popular, teachers in the school."

A woman answering a phone registered in Jean and Bill Vahey's name hung up without speaking when called by an Associated Press reporter. His brothers and sons also could not be reached for comment.

Schools where Vahey taught are reviewing their background check policies and security procedures. A coalition of six organizations of international schools has formed a task force to review recruitment and child abuse. Teacher recruiting firms are conducting a similar joint review.

In the meantime, one of the men molested by Vahey in the Westminster, California, swimming pool as a 9-year-old boy said that learning what had happened since then revived terrible memories.

"It certainly bothers me that a person like that would be left unsupervised and obviously not tracked over the last 45 years now," the man said, his voice growing unsteady. "I find it troubling. I guess the question is: How can the system allow that to happen?"




Hundreds tell FBI of US pedophile teacher
AAP MAY 14, 2014 7:00PM

THE number of possible victims of a teacher suspected of drugging and molesting boys during a four-decade career around the world has risen sharply.

Calling William Vahey one of the most prolific pedophiles in memory, the FBI had said the teacher molested at least 90 boys whose photos were found on a memory drive stolen by his maid in Nicaragua.

But that figure appeared low after Special Agent Shauna Dunlap said on Tuesday the bureau had "been contacted by several hundred individuals from around the globe wishing either to reach out as potential victims or provide information in the ongoing investigation".

Vahey killed himself in March at age 64 after the evidence of molestation emerged.

He taught at 10 schools on four continents and was one of the most beloved teachers in the world of international schools.

Apparently, not even Vahey's victims knew they had been molested. The Oreo biscuits he handed out at bedtime on school trips were laced with sleeping pills - enough to leave the boys unconscious as he touched them and posed them for nude photographs.

Vahey, then 20, pleaded guilty in 1969 to lewd and lascivious behaviour against young boys at a California high school where he taught swimming, but it didn't stop him embarking on a series of teaching jobs.

He began his international teaching career at the American School in Tehran, the first of a series of jobs in the Middle East, Europe and Asia. He taught history, social studies and related subjects, and coached basketball and led school trips.

Authorities may have missed a warning sign during a later teaching stint in Venezuela: two students under Vahey's care were rushed to a hospital after falling unconscious in their hotel room on a trip, parents and staff said, but officials were unable to determine why.

Seven years later, Vahey and his wife went to work at the Westminster campus of London's Southbank International School, with about 350 pupils from 70 countries.

Its chairman of governors, Chris Woodhead, told Britain's Press Association there had been one complaint against Vahey, but the boy's parents said the matter should not be pursued.

In early March, the maid who stole the memory drive handed it to American Nicaraguan school director Gloria Doll.

She confronted Vahey, who told her, according to an FBI affidavit, he had given the boys sleeping pills, adding: "I was molested as a boy, that is why I do this. I have been doing this my whole life."

Doll demanded Vahey's resignation and notified authorities, US officials said, but Vahey had soon flown out of the country.

He travelled to Luverne, Minnesota, where relatives live. He checked into a hotel and stabbed himself in the chest with a knife, leaving a note apologising to his family.

What a tragic story for everyone involved. It makes me wonder... how could something like this could be prevented at source? fMRI brain scans?

Police chief, rabbi among 70 nabbed in child porn ring
Marisol Bello, USA TODAY 10:52 a.m. EDT May 21, 2014

A police chief, a rabbi and a Boy Scout leader are among at least 70 men and one woman arrested on charges of trading in child pornography in what officials say is one of the largest-ever roundups in the New York City area.

The arrests are part of a five-week federal investigation that resulted in the seizure of nearly 600 desktop and laptop computers, tablets, smartphones and other devices containing a total of 175 terabytes of storage, federal officials say.

Investigators from Immigration Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations plan to announce the arrests at a news conference Wednesday afternoon.

Officials say the defendants chatted online and shared images using peer-to-peer file sharing programs. One defendant led to another who led to others.

This case started with the arrest in January of the former police chief of suburban Mount Pleasant, Brian Fanelli. He pleaded not guilty this week to federal charges of knowingly receiving and distributing child pornography. Court papers allege that Fanelli told investigators he began looking at child porn as research before it grew into a "personal interest."

The expansion of the "Dark Web," where pedophiles hide using websites that encrypt their computers' identifying information, has fueled an explosion of child pornography.

Agents are still examining the devices to locate and catalog evidence — an arduous task that could result in more arrests, the Associated Press reports. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children also will use its analysts to review the images to see whether it can identify children using databases of known victims.

"We refer to each of these images as a crime scene photo because that's exactly what they are," John Ryan, the organization's chief executive officer, told the Associated Press.

FBI: 168 kids rescued, 281 pimps nabbed in sex-trafficking crackdown


WASHINGTON -- Nearly 170 victims of child sex trafficking, many of whom had never been reported missing, were rescued in the last week as part of an annual nationwide crackdown, the FBI said Monday.

Besides the 168 children rescued from the sex trade, 281 pimps were arrested during the same period on state and federal charges.

"These are not faraway kids in faraway lands," FBI Director James Comey said in announcing the annual enforcement push known as Operation Cross Country. Instead, he added, "These are America's children."

This is the eighth such week long-operation, which this year unfolded in 106 cities. The FBI says nearly 3,600 children have so far been recovered from the streets.

"There is no more meaningful work that the FBI participates in than rescuing children," Comey said.

He said one concerning trend is the increasing prevalence of children who are being prostituted online.

While announcing the results of the crackdown on Monday, the FBI released a video of Nicole, who was 17 when she was lured into a life of forced prostitution.



In February, the FBI announced that 16 juveniles were recovered and more than 45 pimps and their associates were arrested in a joint Super Bowl operation targeting child sex trafficking.

Since its creation in 2003, the Bureau's Innocence Lost program has resulted in the identification and recovery of about 3,600 children who have been sexually exploited, according to the FBI.

FBI investigating underage prostitution ring in south Texas school district

EL PASO, Texas – Officials with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Ysleta Independent School District have known about a prostitution ring involving middle and high school girls in the district for more than a year, but are only now informing the public.

“Due to student confidentiality laws, the Ysleta Independent School District is prohibited from disclosing specific details of the alleged underage prostitution ring currently under investigation by the FBI,” district officials said in a statement cited by the El Paso Times.

“However, officials at Ysleta High School were notified in December 2012 that an investigation into underage prostitution was under way at local middle and high schools.”

Recent court documents allege a 16-year-old female student at the high school was prostituted through the website Backpage.com for sexual services to a school district volunteer, the news site reports.

According to the district’s cryptic press statement, “the FBI requested that Ysleta High School officials not discuss the matter with anyone, including district administration.

“After the meeting with the FBI, Ysleta High School officials were approached by the student for assistance with issues outside of the investigation that cannot be disclosed. No other details are available at this time, YISD will continue to cooperate fully with local law enforcement agencies in their investigation.”

The statement obviously implies that local police are also keen to the alleged prostitution, but El Paso police deferred the Times’ questions to the FBI, which confirmed their investigation but declined additional comment.


“During a press conference on Monday to announce the arrest of two suspected sex traffickers, FBI officials declined to comment on the case involving the 16-year-old Ysleta student,” according to the Times.

Officials at nearby El Paso, Clint and Canutillo school districts said they have not been in contact with the FBI.

Ysleta school administrators and board members ignored the news site’s calls for comment.

John Martin, executive director for the Paso del Norte Center of Hope – which works to fight child sex trafficking – said local schools can and should do more to combat what’s become a very serious issue.

“The schools desperately need to get involved from the prevention standpoint, they do so much in a similar nature for other issues but they don’t really talk about trafficking,” Martin told the Times.

“It is very important that we target the students in elementary, middle and high school and educate them on the dangers of sex trafficking and create preventative programs,” Martin said. “By definition, the most vulnerable to being trafficked are the poor, young and the immigrant. And in many cases these students fell into all three categories. So it is vital we reach out and educate our young children.”

Horrified to find out about this today :( I only knew Marion Zimmer Bradley casually. We talked at science fiction conventions and at parties and I found her intelligent and interesting. To discover that not only had she been married to a pedophile, Walter Breen, but was one herself is just beyond awful. I didn't know her daughter, but she has my most profound sympathy and my support now that she's come out about what was done to her. Walter was what I'll always think of as the classic pervert--he had a full white Santa Claus beard and wore tie-dye shirts, but somehow was also totally skin-crawling creepy. MZB just was not. She was cool. And my head's still reeling.

After graduation, I had a close friend who worked at a child-care facility. It was a place where mothers or fathers who had been separated from their children because of physical or sexual abuse could come for a supervised visit.

She told me there was a thing there called 'the toybox' or something, it was a collection of particular items that investigators would use to gain insight into experiences a child might have had that they are unwilling or unable to verbalize. Apparently there were very consistent correlations between the childrens' behavior with regard to those toys and experiences they may have undergone. It was not the toys you would expect, like dolls, but very innocuous-seeming things like a sandbox and a glass of water and things like that. She was told by an undercover investigator there that children who had been sexually molested, for example, would almost always mix these two particular items in the toy box. But I cannot remember exactly what they were, this was a long time ago.

In hindsight this is very curious. I wonder how they arrived at this information, was it by trial-and-error or was there an actual theory behind it?

(p.s. my apologies if this is thread-derailing, I thought it might be pertinent)

i think at this stage of the charnelhouse horror show, anything that seeks or helps to clarify the target is pertinent.......

Wow, that's pretty awful. When I first read this post I couldn't remember who Walter Breen was, despite knowing that I'd just recently seen his name several times in a book.

Now after looking him up, I'm thinking, "Oh, that Walter Breen."

VISUP - Close Encounters of the PSYOPS Kind Part III

Dream's End Interviews Jack Sarfatti

http://www.principiadiscordia.com/forum ... c=34787.75

http://www.rigorousintuition.ca/board2/ ... =8&t=15235

But the gifted children group to which Sarfatti belonged was somehow linked with the Sandia Corporation, now part of Lockheed Martin, a charter member of the Defense–Energy establishment.

In an email posted on a Web site (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ItalianPh ... message/79) and dated July 16, 2001, Sarfatti writes, “Breen was talking about extra dimensions, telepathy, remote viewing, UFOs, mutant humans, contact with aliens … Sandia was trying to develop us as super-kids to have paranormal powers and to deal with extra-dimensional intelligence.”

Sandia is still involved with gifted children to this day, in cooperation with a “super kids” program that selects very bright students to work with its supercomputer.


Sarfatti mentions in another email exchange, from June 2002, that he had been “studied” by the US Army in the late 1940s, and goes on to describe the after-school group led by Walter Breen as the “McDermott-Sheldon-Breen ‘Columbia-Sandia eugenics’ connection of 1953-56.”

Again, this is a very suggestive timeframe in which to be placing events so similar as those related by Sarfatti and Strieber. In yet another place Sarfatti goes into more detail about this observation by the Army. He claims it occurred at “US Army Quarter Masters in Lower Manhattan in the late 1940s soon after the alleged Roswell incident,” and mentions that his mentor Walter Breen told him that he (i.e., Breen) had been in a plane crash in 1947 and had complete amnesia of the event, only coming to later in an Army hospital.


Destiny Matrix, footnote number 60:

My grandfather Murray Jacobson worked for the US Army Quarter Master Corps in lower Manhattan in late 40’s & early 50’s where I used to go and “play” after school and I got to ride around in Army cars talking with officers about my plans to build spaceships to the planets and then to the stars. My grandfather did the driving. This, I speculate, may have a causal connection to my later contact with Breen and the phone calls. Curiously, John Hersey wrote a novel in the 1950’s called “The Child Buyer”. “This is a story of an investigation into the activities of Mr. Wissey Jones, a stranger who comes to the town of Pequot on urgent defense His business is to buy for his corporation children of a certain sort, in this case a ten-year-old named Barry Rudd, a budding genius of potentially critical value. A hearing is held and questions are asked: exactly why does Mr. Jones’ company buy children, and will it succeed in buying Barry?”


[...]

There is another side to that program he also acknowledges, again from Destiny Matrix:

Around this time, in the early 1950s, I was part of an after-school group of gifted kids (including Johnny Glogower54 who worked with me and Lenny Susskind at Cornell later on) conducted by the late Walter Breen. Breen was a graduate student at Columbia and well-known numismatist associated with psychologist William Sheldon.

http://www.innerexplorations.com/catpsy/t2c7.htm

Breen had a connection with the nuclear weapons laboratory, Sandia Corporation, because two men visited us from Sandia who lectured us on “patriotism” and “anti-communism” when they took us to dinner in New York’s German Town (86th Street). Breen was closely connected with people in Ayn Rand’s circle. However, I met Breen after the strange phone calls.
The new way of thinking is precisely delineated by what it is not.
