Monsters: Rich Philanthropist Francis D. Shelden and Catholic Priest John R. Thwaytes.

WARNING; this is very triggering, disturbing information. Nightmare material. I am posting this in the off-chance that someone out there can help. I am also posting it because it shows what happens when prosecutors can’t get their shit together to arrest a wealthy pedophile before he flees justice. Washtenaw County’s buck passing and St. Claire County’s little “work load” excuse back in 1976 allowed incredible damage to be done to thousands of boys and their families down the line. Nice work.

Read this email I received from a reader who knows what Frank Shelden did after he left Michigan and the United States. His new Fox Island was a boys orphanage in India.

Dear Cathy

I realise you may find this obscure – please take time to look at it.

I have identified a Catholic priest in India as a lifelong friend of Frank Shelden, who hosted him as a paedophile visiting the orphanage that the priest ran in India, which is how I come into the picture.

The priest died in 2015 and then I found out he was a paedophile years earlier. A major paedophile. And a murderer.

I suspect this priest of having robust involvement on North Fox Island, and I think his DNA should be checked.

As a possible suspect in the Oakland County Child killings. I do note that a strong rumour of a “priest leaked out of the country at the time” was remarked by lower ranked law officers according to one or more bloggers.

I have looked at the photofit likenesses of the OCCK suspect, I have three different drawings,
and I have a lot of varied images of the priest, which of course is meaningless, but there is a striking resemblance all the same. I have made up a compilation image of all the pics together

I have evidence that the priest had more than one passport, that is he had fake identity, and could easily have been in the USA, while ostensibly still in India.I have a copy of the fake Indian passport dated long after OCCK but if he had a fake then, why would we think he might not have had one earlier?

The priest was ordained at Mary glade seminary, and lived in the vicinity of the OCCK murders throughout 1962 – 1966 but he retained close ties to Detroit, even though he was English.

Significant funds came into the orphanage, from Detroit, and I think Frank Sheldon was sending quite a bit of that money, but again this is hardly relevant, except that to show the ongoing connection to Detroit.
The priest returned on fundraising, ostensibly, because don’t forget he was a missionary who came from the local Detroit Seminary and they were funding him also as I understand.

I have photographic evidence of Frank Shelden holding orphan children, in this orphanage in India, years before I came along of course. All of this info of Shelden has been exposed to me within the last 9 months and the criminal matters in India only after the priest died in 2015.

I have identified another international paedophile in close liaison and friendship with Frank, and that is Dr Frits Bernard, and I have photographs of him also at the orphanage in India. Over these men were coming there to have sex with orphan boys, who were too poor and illiterate and isolated, and were trafficked by the priest

I would like to attach a photograph but I suspect my previous communications have been perhaps auto-discarded, so I won’t send an attachment until I get confirmation that you are willing to receive an attachment.

The priest is accused of killing a woman, or at the least concealing her body illegally, under a building in the orphanage, and I have a map to this illegal grave but he also buried a Child secretively in the midnight hours, and I believe that was one of his victims who died from abuse.

I also have a map to where that grave is, but getting any action in India is very difficult.

An eyewitness has described how this priest nearly murdered a man in front of his eyes. The diary of the priest which I am now holding makes reference to snuff sex.

The priest is alleged to have been interested in black magic.

There is a great deal about this man that makes me think he is a very ideal suspect in the murder of one or more of the Oakland victims. There might have been more than one killer.

It is very hard to get attention, but I think I have some very troubling information that needs to at least be eliminated.
If the priest was not involved, or if there is not enough evidence, if his DNA is not match, well then fine.

But surely every lead should be followed. I believe that the American police should contact Indian Federal police and request a crime scene be declared, to exhume or find other sources of DNA of the priest
And of course to locate those Indian victims.

I have tried to convey this info to US police but unsuccessfully

let me know if I can send a compilation image with all the pics I have of the priest.

His name was John Robert Thwaytes and he was a damaged sexual psychopath and even I forgot to mention had issues with females and maybe the OCCK killer also had this as I note the girls were not sexually touched allegedly.

I am Adrian Millane of Nambour, Queensland, Australia 4560 +61431593446 and Skype Facebook Ade O’Maolain

I received permission from Adrian to post his email, including contact information and the attachments.

Here is the compilation image with the photos/pictures of Thwatyes:

Here is a passport photo of the man from 1981.

B2C72A28-EC89-4D04-AD12-F5059725281A

The diary page Adrian sent is from this priest’s diary and it goes on about how much he thought about snuff sex and his fantasy that he himself be tortured to death. It is horrifying and I will spare you the read. But snuff sex is certainly something Frank Shelden capitalized on and probably enjoyed himself.

B05ED2D1-3AF6-4188-AE06-ADF335319A7D.png

Read lines 17-37 if you have the stomach for it, and ask yourself how a monster like Frank Shelden was allowed to flee justice and hook up with another monster like Thwatyes, to rape and abuse probably thousands more boys overseas. No doubt some were murdered as well for their snuff fantasies:

    Cathy-
    I’ve started this fifty different times and deleted so I’ll cut to the chase. It is your persistence, insistence, and resistance that has made you the conduit for all that has been hidden or ignored in these cases and in the greater, more hideous world of sex trafficking, pedophilia, rape and murder. It is a heavy burden to shoulder the push for truth and action, and I know it is frustrating (but that seems like a benign word to describe it) to continually beat your head against a Blue wall. You are the embodiment of strength and in your work you have given what I can only guess is hundreds, perhaps thousands of victims validation and hopefully a path to move forward in their lives.

    I don’t know how long that MSP wall will stand but you continue to throw hatchets at the base and at some point it will have to tumble. As more people become aware of the horrid realities around these cases, they too will throw hatchets. WE will throw hatchets.

    Never stop.

  2. Cecilia Brown says:

    While the creep who went to India has a richer, nastier history, the one named Harold Depp, who was personally known to me for years, who came from Detroit and was “active” ten years before the Shelden-related murders, is someone who DIDN’T escape the law. He went to prison. Why isn’t anybody interested to see if he knew or partook in what was going on in Michigan?

  3. bitamoney says:

    Adrian, you are top notch. Thanks for this.

    • Ade says:

      ‘bitamoney’ what a kind comment to comfort and reassure a suffering soul burdened with this evil I have been forced by fate to dig through.

  4. Amy S says:

    There is just so much to unpack.

    It’s not surprising that Sheldon and his fellow perverts would take advantage of helpless orphans in a 3rd world county. These sickos
    weren’t even under the radar at this point. LE knows it’s happening. Don’t tell me they didn’t have enough evidence. There were pictures for God’s sake. It is just heartbreaking.
    I am thoroughly furious after reading the Richards reports. I can’t comprehend
    Washtenaw County’s refusal to
    issue a search warrant. ESPECIALLY because
    it involves the horrific sexual abuse of children.
    Would a warrant had been issued if Richards had reported the recruiting of children for Sheldon to beat?
    “Wait” on the warrant. Wait for what?!
    I can’t wrap my head around this. It is beyond disturbing.

    • cathybroad says:

      Amy, “wait” is how law enforcement handled all of this. Wait for what is right. For more people to die? For the public to get sick if this and move on? “Wait” as a strategy is going to stop working, hopefully soon. If law enforcement won’t get out ahead of all of this and everything that is coming, the implosion that affected the people they are supposed to protect and defend will swallow them and their agencies up as well. Get to work.

    • Ade says:

      I cannot understand why it is generally accepted that Frank Shelden fled the USA, and gave up / ran away from his entire past life, living as a fugitive for the rest of his life, solely on the basis of some child sex abuse matters.

      I am not trivialising the crimes. This was a wealthy man of privilege and influence, and those were times long before such things were discussed so openly and in-depth. I have no doubt Frank had the money and the power to at least limit the consequences of his sexual abuses.

      My belief is he did not flee from sexual abuse charges. I cannot say, because I do not know anything, but I believe he fled from one or more murders. Who knew what he fled from, but it was so severe that it terminated his life virtually overnight.

      It was crime that was impossible to payoff or buy privileged reduced punishment for.
      He has not been named as the OCCK and I am not saying he is. But he ran from something a lot more severe (in his mind) than the rape of an eight year old boy, an 11 year old boy, and the North Fox crimes. He ran from what he knew would be uncovered, and I believe he ran from his connection, Direct connection, to murder, or murders.

      I just cannot make sense of a multimillionaire, from a respected powerful influential family, abandoning his life over crimes that typically, a man in his position would expect to at least ameliorate, using expensive lawyers, legal loopholes, bribery, political power, etc. Even a 12 month jail term, possibly suspended, or two years, surely is not enough reason to abandon family and friends, and one’s own nation. There was something much more severe that he knew he was implicated in.

      Frank did not runaway from what we know about. He ran away from something we don’t yet know that he was connected to. I believe he ran away from murder, and possibly, he ran away from one or more murders done by the group of paedophiles he belonged to.

      And I think the priest in India may have been involved in the same network of child sex and snuff sex activities. There may be no DNA that matches but at the least it should be checked. I have witness testimony from 3 sources about bodies buried at the orphanage, illegally and secretively. The priest John Robert Thwaytes is alleged to have murdered one of these, a woman, but I think the other also, a small boy, died as a result of sexual abuses.

      Even the allegation of these things should be enough to trigger a search for the graves where I have maps to their burial places … but no action in corrupted India.
      Even the allegation that he was involved in murder in India and has direct ties to OCCK vicinity and to Shelden AND IS A PROVEN PAEDOPHILE with sbuff sex obsessions and had a fake passport and has some passing resemblance to the photofit images … THESE ARE REASONS I think that justify a demand for DNA to be cross-checked, even if only to rule out this man John Thwaytes.

  5. Amy S says:

    Also- why wasn’t the Federal Govt involved in
    this? Were there child pornography laws in place in the 70’s? If so, why weren’t the guys facilitating this evil prosecuted? Busch had a suitcase full of pictures. He paid a fine and was released. So many victims yet to come. It’s just unconscionable.

    The local police in these different parts of Michigan knew these guys were distributing child porn. What happened to the list of customers?

    I am thinking out loud. It looks like there were so many possible leads to follow the evil. These guys were on the radar of police.

    • cathybroad says:

      The FBI was involved at numerous points. The MSP file on Fox Island indicates they were forwarding file information to the FBI. Of course they were. The file reflects operations in Tennessee and other states.

      In the OCCK case, when police did not take impressions of the bumper marks in the snow banks at Kristine’s drop site, FBI agent Mort Nickel worked with Lt. Jack Kalbfleish (Birmingham PD and on the task force) to have photos of the impressions evaluated for measurements at University of Michigan. These were then taken to car manufacturers to determine the make and model, Pontiac LeMans. This information, along with the findings that there was a trailer hitch on the back bumper that had been pulled to one side from some kind of accident or mishap, was never made public.
      When Jack attempted to make contact with SA Nickel when the task force was reactivated in 2005, it was a Sgt. Shultz response–I know nothing.

      I remember being interviewed by an FBI agent in our living room while Tim was missing. The FBI was involved in the hypnosis and interview of Doug Wilson, the witness who came forward a few weeks after Tim’s murder after he realized what he the evening of March 16, 1977, at the parking lot behind Hunter Maple Pharmacy was important. He described a young boy talking to an older man and an even older freak sitting in a Pontiac LeMans, with the numbers 222 on the license plate.

      And let’s not forget the FBI’s response to a FOIA request for files on Christopher Busch, Frank Shelden and N. Fox Island. When they finally responded, it was with the “records destroyed in a catastrophic flood” at the relevant storage facility.

      The FBI agent assigned to this case for the past few years, unlike his predecessor (who retired), struck me as very defensive and unnecessarily combative about strategy. If he is still on the “team,” I hope he has taken the time to read up on recent DNA testing methods and use of ancestry databases.

      Bottom line, if you ask me: Some people at the state and federal level made this go away. The people they protected they protected to the extreme detriment of many, many kids who were victimized before, during and after these investigations. Look at Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell and their little bevy of clients. Nothing has changed.

      • jbsptfn says:

        Tennessee? That makes me think of the movie Walking Tall. I wonder if the Dixie Mafia was involved.

        I had heard of the Oakland Child Killer case before (from A&E, I think), but until I was on the Crime Junkies podcast, I never heard of it’s possible ties to a pedo ring.

  6. jade says:

    I’m glad this is getting attention. I have read this story posted in the comments section on multiple websites

  7. Brad Olson says:

    The Pontiac LeMans or GTO has a tow bar and is dented. Police cant or wont track to see who had those vehicles with a 222 in the license plate and had a boat, camper or trailer? The rear bumper being dented makes me think that the dent was caused by “jack knifing” the towed object. Perhaps there still exists photographic evidence from the origional owner of the dent. I know my dad kept pictures of his truck and boat until he died. Just a thought.

    • cathybroad says:

      That law enforcement would not deal with this information back in the day not only “doesn’t make sense,” it points to a high up deciding this case would go unsolved because 1. “Big” people were involved and would be revealed, 2. Pedophiles were getting offed and no one wants to spend the rest of their life in prison, 3. Agencies knew they dropped the ball, leading to more abductions and murders, or 4. Fill in the blank.

      • Ade says:

        That is one explanation for Frank fleeing USA. He may have known too much to be safe to stay. Some “big” person may have “offed’ him to shut him up had he remained?

        But I think Frank fled from the Federal crime/s of murder or accessory to murder. Child sexual abuse just was not a big enough reason to drive him out if his entire life in USA, in my view.

    some of the video he ‘favorited’ are quite disturbing

  10. Survivor says:

    Cathy It has been almost a year Sense the Documentary Children of the Snow aired. I have been silent And patient waiting for authority To show some sort of movement in this case. I have seen no signs of life In moving forward with this case From any authority. So on December 5th 2019 I wrote a letter to our governor. And I also forward that Letter to the Attorney General’s office The head of the state Police. And to the president of the United States. As of today I still have not gotten a response From any of These agencies. So today I am going to email you the letter I Sent to these agencies. In hopes that you will post it on your blog on the anniversary date of children of the snow. February 19th 2020. This will be my last and final attempt To seek Justice For the families and victims involved including myself. There is no way I could ever explain The damage These monsters and our government Has caused me And my family. And I have came to the realization There is absolutely nothing anybody can do To fix this. And somehow make a right Out of all of this wrong. And with this being said. I hope you all have a very happy MLK day

    • cathybroad says:

      I will absolutely post the letter on February 19. The silence and inaction in this case is beyond abhorrent. So many people to expose. As Martin Luther King said “Lightening makes no sound until it strikes.” Justice for all of the victims.

  11. RD1 says:

    Cathy – thanks very much for that snippet from an investigator’s report, referencing John Oullette FBI. It has given me some insight, and better understanding, about a burden you & your family have apparently labored under for many years.
    I’m so sorry for all the self-serving lies and misinformation your brother’s case has been infested by over the decades. I expected that, from the lying POS Lawson who has ‘stalked’ your family seeking to manipulate and exploit you since 1988(!). I expect that, also, from Gunnel’s little brother – whose lies are so obviously intended to save his brother from whatever fate he no doubt richly deserves. But, the betrayal of your trust by law enforcement professionals just makes me want to vomit.

    “…Lawson talked about Shelden financing the film of Timothy King, produced by Bob Moore…”
    What, exactly, was Shelden supposed to be funding? A camera? Don’t need a millionaire for that. A professional film crew? Obviously not. The kidnapping and murder of your brother?
    It’s beyond outrageous, that LE professionals would even entertain such a baseless fantasy, and frankly grossly incompetent if they actually suggested that to your family. Why would Shelden bother with risking the attention & investigation of a kidnapping, with so many boys already at his disposal? If he really wanted a snuff film of a boy, little E.D. could just “go missing” on a camping trip and tragically never be found – at a cost of nada for him.

    “John and I agreed that the motive behind the kidnappings & killings was probably the money the suspects were getting for filming and selling the ‘snuff’ films of these children”
    Sweet Jesus! Were you told that this was an ‘expert’ opinion? Were you led to believe, this was based on these two persons having confidential knowledge of “kiddy snuff”, never released to the public? That would be false. They didn’t tell your family, that they knew there was a “film of Timothy king” because they had seen it, or had a copy in their custody? Because that would be a lie. It doesn’t exist, as I’ve tried to reassure you many times over 20 years.

    According to NCMEC, there are child sexual abuse images of me as a young teen, from the mid 1970’s, that were published commercially in the “Golden Boys” series. For me, for M.F., for so many others, the nightmarish understanding that those images of us STILL circulate among perverts today and probably always will, that the total number of copies “out there” can only increase – never decrease – over time. If there was ever more than one original copy of a CSA image, this is inevitable…and there’s no way for anyone to stop it, including the producer of it.
    There never was an underground kiddy snuff “industry”, but if there had been, this would be true of whatever “products” they produced as well. The fantasy of kiddy snuff, if it existed, being fantastically profitable is debunked by this inevitable reality also. There’s no way to stop their customers from making endless copies of the film/tape/digital file they bought, and the “value” of that product would plummet shortly after their first sale of it. And it would also, inevitably, eventually ‘surface’ in the massive collections of obsessed perverts being seized by law enforcement all the time.

    • cathybroad says:

      Thank you very much for your insights. So many thoughts about them. In addition to getting gas lighted and jacked around by law enforcement for decades, the thought that so many people have information or knew and kept silent is beyond devastating. With law enforcement, the Nietzsche quote “I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can never believe you,” is always present for me. Not to mention that someone at the very top made the decision to make sure this case could never be solved for the public or families.

      As for people with knowledge, who must lie to themselves every day of their lives, you have to wonder how they don’t rot from the inside out. Paul Gunnels–knowledge. Vince Gunnels–has knowledge because he participated. He knows. Brother of Greg Green told police Greg sent them a letter about his life while he was in prison, but they threw it out when he died. I just bet you did. Charles Busch–the things he said, alluded to and did not say in his interview with law enforcement after his brother’s name surfaced again are very telling. I believe John Hastings has knowledge. And his family has suspicions, if not knowledge as well. Neighbors of Busch who knew “bad things were going on over there,” and kept quiet.

      A friend of mine from another part of the country has watched the documentary Children of the Snow and listened to various podcasts about the crimes. She said “my heart breaks a little more every time I learn more.” She asked “How did so many evil people end up in Michigan?” I think when a society, like Oakland County, tolerates or looks the other way, when people like Medical Examiner Robert Sillery manipulate and take and prosecutors do the dodge and weave; when law enforcement cultures allow and cover for people like polygraph examiner Cabot at the MSP, shit festers. This process helps families like the Busches and the Sheldens keep their little family name fantasy and everyone else pays.

      • RD1 says:

        Thank you! (I hope you are well)
        Yes, “you have to wonder how they don’t rot from the inside out”
        .
        Chris Busch nephews were also complainants against him? Or did I misunderstand that?
        The Gunnels brothers and their ‘we were used to lure other kids’ claims…quite possibly true, but not the whole story is it? Paul said, Green used him to lure other kids to the car, so Green could look them over. And? Then they would drive away, just the two of them? Isn’t something missing, there, like Green pickling up kids he “liked” – and then the three of them, (or four, or five…), Paul included,go somewhere Green can abuse them all in relative peace and safety, eh? That never gets spelled out.
        Nor, for that matter, does the obsession of so many Michigan pedos of that era, with making adolescent victims sexually assault pre-adolescent ones, in their presence or in their pornography.
        I could believe a Gunnel was the second boy seen with Busch at the cabin, and that he was made to abuse Tim. But the part where they drive away out of reality and into Lawson’s “Lamborgine did it” fantasies/falsehoods,and leave Tim there in a fantasy land of “we’re not responsible for anything after that”, is just too G-D convenient – for Gunnels & Busch.

        • cathybroad says:

          The FOIA documents, including interview transcripts, reflect that one of the nephews was raped by Busch. The other denied it. No charges were ever filed on the nephew’s behalf. The father, John Busch, is alleged to know of the abuse.

          Use of the lure? Get the kid close and engaged in conversation so an adult can appear, punch the child in the throat and throw them in the trunk or car. Twenty seconds, max. Gunnels, unlike KB, offers no speculation, no information. Was only with Busch twice—raped both times but never again. KB is the person who said the boy who looked like my brother got dropped off to Lamborgine. Lamborgine has maintained that he “only” raped boys. Not a killer. I guess that’s why he thinks his god has forgiven him. Gunnels, likewise, has said very little except, “I wasn’t there” when anything happened “to those kids.” Clearly does not understand the concept of complicity.

          • RD1 says:

            [laughing at myself]
            Thanks again! Suspected I had misunderstood some things, now I can see where I’d mixed narratives together. Apologies to P. Gunnel for putting incorrect words in his mouth.

    • Drew says:

      I’ve never replied to other posters on here (besides admin) and I’m definitely not one for arguing over the internet but I couldn’t let this one go. I don’t really understand why you think that the snuff film theory or snuff films in general are so inconceivable. There are A LOT of messed up sick fucks out there. Literally anything is possible especially when you have money.

      If the Gunnels’ finished their statements, it would have obviously implicated themselves in the abductions and further abuse of children. Which is most likely why the didn’t finish their statements.

      Regarding the comments about Sheldon funding the snuff film. i have read that Detective report log in its entirety when it was originally posted. That extensive and tireless work by the Wayne County detective and the King family brought out so many new leads and revealed so many new potential suspects, even pointing to the Child Sex Ring possibility. It practically helped to revive the case when Oakland County LE was completely silent and had done nothing. Richard Lawson was obviously a sick fuck himself, murderer, and only agreed to talk when he was in a bind. I am in NO WAY defending him but his willingness to take the plea deal and give out names, names that had never been heard of before tied to this case, names who eventually FAILED the lie detector tests or flat out even refused to take tests, cannot be ignored. Clearly alluding to their possible knowledge or involvement. Although the case has stalled since, it does not leave out the possibility that these men may one day FINALLY talk and it helped to tighten the circle of suspects involved. And although Lawson was described as an exaggerative person I have absolutely no reason to believe that the snuff film theory is outrageous, whether it was for Tim or for other innocent children. As painful as it is to think about, one thing that this theory isn’t, is outlandish. What would Sheldon be funding? Well, why wouldn’t you have to pay for people to kidnap a child? Why wouldn’t he have to pay for someone or multiple people to “take care of” that child, or hide that child especially if they are trafficked to different locations, when the child’s face is plastered all over the news. People pay to have their spouses, their bosses, their family members killed all the time for various reasons like money. If a hit man or a sex trafficker, or kidnapper is taking the risk, they will absolutely require payment, a big payment. If you’re rich, you can pay people to do whatever you want, and whatever you don’t want to do yourself. And especially in a time when information was not so readily available at a click of a button like it is today. Why wouldn’t a sick fuck, who gets off on the unthinkable, want to have a film like that at their disposal to replay over and over whenever they wanted. Serial killers will visit the bodies of their victims just to relive that killing high or get sexual gratification. Some even keep momentos of their victims, jewelry, bones, bodies, etc. People get off on sickening things, things that most people can’t even imagine. Sheldon had no problem doing whatever he wanted because he had money and he knew he could vanish without a trace. Which is exactly what he did. He had contacts worldwide Even when he was clearly in plain sight as shown in the updated photo and information, he knew he was still untouchable. He probably didn’t even consider any of his actions a “risk” because it was what he required sexually and obviously saw no issue with any of it. So yes, it’s highly probable that Sheldon would involve himself in that. If you read Cathy’s other documents posted there is first hand knowledge of a very close associate and essentially business partner of Sheldon, Gerald Richards, whose own daughter’s stated they remember seeing their dad and other men kill children at his father’s “massage” parlor. A CLOSE ASSOCIATE of Sheldon. i don’t understand why you state these videos don’t exist because they weren’t released to the public. Why would they ever be released??????? The explicit nature of those videos alone they would never, nor do i have any knowledge or it ever being done before, release something that like that. In any case involving children, they barely release any information regardless. Not even a screenshot of a video, not even a “do you know this child, help us figure out who this is” shot. Nothing. Juveniles that kill, or even just commit robbery are still protected by law, their names are usually withheld. Obviously LE did not have a video of that in their hands. The networks that these type of people operate within are extremely secretive and complex. Especially back in the day when technology was less advance. Videos were being sold nationwide and even overseas, this is stated several times in the U.S. Senate testimony when they were trying to get a law passed to protect children from sex crimes, i am blanking on the exact name right now unfortuntely. It’s an entire book practically. Why would LE find a specific film reel of something so disturbing back then, when today they still can’t even figure out when rich people have hidden money in offshore bank accounts. Why wouldn’t rich people that are into child snuffing want to watch a video of it? They get to see what they like, and they don’t even have to be present to be caught or found as an accomplice in murder. Guilty by association. And i’m sure there are many other reasons why that I can’t even pretend to know because I don’t know how to think like these people do. Because we as normal citizens have never seen something or because it’s not in some sort of computer database that someone you know has access to that means it doesn’t exist? I’m not 100% pro cop or something, there are absolutely MANY bad apples, in this case especially and even beyond. But many of them have probably seen some gruesome shit, crime scenes, car accidents, child abuse, domestic abuse, that we can’t even imagine. Just because we haven’t seen it first hand doesn’t mean that people aren’t capable of it.

      Have you heard of Peter Scully? The Australian pedophile who was arrested in 2018 in the phillipines for the sexual abuse and torture of many young girls, one as young as 18 months old, many of whom he filmed sexually abusing and physically torturing. He filmed these videos and web cam access to sell to rich clients. There was even the skeletal remains of a young girl found underneath his rented home, who he strangled to death. Based on the testimony of one of those young victims, I can only imagine that being rich afforded access to special or specific requests of videos, this including torture and probably death. Of course there are pedophile sex rings and sex trafficking that rich people pay to participate in. This is still going on rampant worldwide today. I don’t doubt that. Can they get it cheaper somewhere else? Sure. In poorer countries I saw a report that American tourists can sexually abuse children, doing anything they want, for less than $10. The traffickers don’t care because $10 american dollars is a fortune to them. But because it’s cheaper that’s apparently a concrete reason why rich people wouldn’t pay a more expensive price for access to child abuse/torture/killing material? If you’re rich you don’t care about price tags. And if it wasn’t profitable, why would so many people be sex trafficking in present day especially. Marc Dutroux is a convicted Belgian pedophile and rapist. He sexually and physically abused, trafficked, and murdered many young girls in Europe with many other accomplices. Any surviving victims stated there were many other young victims at sex parties, many more child murders, and even the fact that many high profile people, even in parliament were involved and partook in the sexual abuse, resulting in a massive cover up. Bottom line, people like this have no problem paying whatever they want, and have absolutely no problem killing children. If you aren’t into these sort of things, and you don’t think how these people think, you can’t say that they wouldn’t pay this, or pay that, or whatever you were saying. If you don’t know how these people operate, then you don’t know what they are capable of, you don’t know what they’d do. Sorry you were unable to find it in your “database” but again, that doesn’t mean it isn’t real.

      I’m not saying that i’m convinced that this is something that 100% completely no ifs ands or buts happened with the OCCK victims, like a “Helen” attitude. But the families of these victims are still desperate for answers and the police had and have every right to follow up on that lead. One thing for sure is that after reading over Cathy’s documents, the monsters like Sheldon, Richards, Lawson, Lambrogine, Moore, etc, were MORE THAN CAPABLE of killing. Denying, especially with the amount of certainty you have, that child snuffing or snuff films exist in general is denying justice to the many victims to sexual assault that have died in this sickening unthinkable way. It is an injustice to those victims as well the countless faceless and voiceless victims throughout the world that will never be named. Referring to it as “mythical” left me completely dumbfounded.

        Hi Drew! It’s wasn’t the alleged child snuff not being released publicly, that I questioned. It was the idea that confidential knowledge of child snuff was being “withheld from the public” that I stated to be false.
        You can “why wouldn’t they” scenarios all day, but the fact that there remains no documentation for a child snuff industry in America, circa 1960’s to 2000, no documentation for even 1 such film, is the proof that such scenarios are mythical, imagined, and not documented fact.

    Having raised the subject of pervert’s CSA images collection, perhaps I should tell you something related to that. I have a source, who has the stomach-churning task of sorting through seized files – separating known & classified child sex abuse images from “new” ones.
    This person thinks there might be a film depicting Greene & Busch abusing two young boys. Apparently this one has been showing up in seized collections for decades and still does from time to time. The faces of the abusers can’t be seen, but this person thinks one perp could be a body double for Busch, right down to the right size & shape of beard, and that the other perp could be a body double for Greene. The victims might be 7-9 and 10-12 years. There are two ‘parts’, I’m told. In one, the older boy is bound to a tree by the Greene double, then stripped and brutally raped – which sounds to me a lot like that evil man living out the fantasies described in documents you’ve shared.
    My source says, your brother definitely NOT one of these victims.

    One more thing. All beliefs about alleged underground child snuff industries and their customers, are mythical. Because there haven’t been any real-life examples to study & analyze.
    Many of the common mythical beliefs about them, are based on mistaken assumptions. One of these, which you may have come across, is that wealthy pedophile sexual sadists presumed to be customers, would “pay any price” to see “the real thing” – another ‘reason’ people think it would be insanely profitable.
    I asked a friend with access to a confidential database, restricted to law enforcement and authorized academics, to search out the closest I thought we could come to “the real thing” from commercial publications of the 1970’s – so, CSA photo magazines with these content parameters; hardcore, S&M and B&D.
    This is an example of the results; “S&M Boys” (original German: “Knaben S/M”).
    I wouldn’t want to see the content, but I have no doubt that it was “the real thing”.
    Sounds like it would appeal to a similar customer base as child snuff?
    Cover price was: $500? no. $100? no $50? no $20? no. Cover price was 10 deutchmarks, approx $4 US. That’s how much, REAL child sexual torture customers were willing to pay, to see “the real thing”.
    The mistaken assumption, is that child sex abusers place a high value on their child victims, or on victimizing children. They don’t. The child’s value, to them, is negligible to nothing.

      Drew, you mentioned Gerald Richard’s daughter, aka “the woman in the transcript”. Regrettably, yet another self-professed witness whose testimony is discredited by their own words. To begin, from the FBI statement transcript it is clear that she was a recovered memory therapy patient, as she claims to have recovered memories of her abuse via therapy. Considering what had been happening to many of those patients around that period (such as Pat Burgus)

      https://www.chicagomag.com/Chicago-Magazine/June-1998/Dangerous-Therapy-The-Story-of-Patricia-Burgus-and-Multiple-Personality-Disorder/

      any memories she might have recovered that way have to be considered suspect, at the least.
      But the claim of not knowing/remembering, until she was in therapy as a young adult, that her father had “been involved in a pedophile pornography ring” is not credible. Gerald Richard’s confession of all that he had been involved in was so very, very public – not just the testimony to Illinois State Senate, but in news articles of that day…its inconceivable that any adult residents of Dexter, Mich. would have remained ignorant of the whole scandal, or would not have openly gossiped about it amongst themselves, inconceivable their school aged kids would not have absorbed at least “the gist” of it, and taunted Richard’s children about it from time to time throughout their childhood. But she thinks her father, the most notorious child pornographer in America right up to 1992, MIGHT have been involved…

      She states that her own abuse memories begin when she was approx. 6 years old, in 1975 or 1976, and that she & sister driven to Ann Arbor to be photographed together, by Dad, twice a year for four years. But Richards was in prison for at least two of those years and Shelden had fled America even before that. She talks about her sister being pregnant with Gerald’s child, and a forced abortion she witnessed. There’s not a lot of time during which Gerald could have impregnated sister, considering he got released in late 1980’s (and lived with his mother, not the wife and children) and died – again in prison – in 1994. In any case, at least a decade after this daughter claims her abuse occurred mid 1970’s, aged 6…so she would have to be at least 16 when this forced abortion happened…but she had no memory about it until she went into therapy at age 18! Only two years before, and no memory of it without therapy.
      It’s not surprising, there’s no record of Gerald being charged with anything related to daughter’s claims, before he passed in 1994.
