Police Arrest Daycare Worker On Molestation Charges


A 21 year-old daycare worker from Florissant Missouri, has been jailed for molesting two boys.

That's what Michigan police say happened Thursday night in densely populated area of Ferry Township.

Oceana County Sheriff's Lt Tim Priese stated that Danlee who had recently broke up with his wife this past memorial day, had parked his vehicle behind the home, broke into the house, stole the shotgun and then waited for her to arrive.

Upon arriving home with family members, Mead confronted Jessica which is when he drug her out into the wooded area and shot her death.

Later that day, officers found the lifeless body of Jessica Mead behind the house and later found Danlee's body nearly 4,000 feet from her.

For some time now, Danlee Mead had been using MySpace to release his sadness with how his life had turned out recently, in fact the day before the murder-suicide took place, he wrote "Dan is going to have a hard day today" in reference to missing his son's birthday.

He also wrote a blog entry entitled "Saying Goodbye", writing "I love you and will miss you with all my heart".

But there was also a dark side to Danlee MySpace postings, on an archived version of his MySpace profile, seen here, He wrote:

Far different from how his MySpace had looked on Thursday:

Perhaps the scariest of all his writings was the following:

From only my observation, it appears that Danlee had probably been thinking about this for some time.

According to Department of Corrections Web site, Mr. Mead had already stacked up quite a lengthy criminal history.

Danlee Brigg Mead, one for the books. A selfish fool, with a bubble bursted ego, who not only took the children's mother away from them, but foolishly neglected the thought that he was also talking their father away from them as well.

May he burn in hell for an eternity.

Man Enters Guilty Plea For MySpace Meet Up


Suspect traveled nearly 3000 miles:

Back in April I told about the case of 46-year-old Douglas Evert here and here.

Evert, of New York, traveled to the state of California with the hopes of having sex with a 13-year-old girl he met through MySpace. Of course, there was no minor and those awful police in Moreno Valley spoiled the big date.

Now that three months has passed, it seems Evert is finally going to fess up to his sick intentions, as he entered a plea of guilty in court today on the charges.

For the record, that’s approximately 2812.63 miles that Douglas traveled too meet up with the girl.

New York Solider Arrested In Net Sex Sting

27-year-old Richard Luttman, of Queens, faces numerous charges including second-degree rape and attempted criminal sexual act with minor.

Man Accused Of Child Molestation


Parent's refused to believe daughter's story:

Police in Indiana have arrested a Valparaiso man on charges of molesting two daughters of a family that he had previously been staying with.

Anthony M. Welkie, 42, was arrested after allegations began to surface when one of the girls told their grandmother that he was touching her inappropriately.

According to court records, she had earlier tried to tell her own parents but unbelievably they doubted their daughters story as she had just recently learned about the subject in school.

However, when questioned by authorities the younger of the two daughter's told investigators that the suspect too had molested her at least 20 times.

Anthony Welkie has denied the accusations and is currently being held on $25,000 bail.

Man Arrested For Molesting Girl, 6


Suspect admits to charges, say police:

An Indiana man has been arrested on suspicion of committing 12 counts of child molestation.

Lawrence Auler, 44, was arrested by police in Anderson after a 6-year-old girl told an officer that he had touched her genitals and then made her touch his.

According to court papers, he “french kissed” the child and made her perform sex acts on him. Meanwhile, the girl’s brother, who is 10, told a detective that he walked in on the 44-year-old and his 6-year-old sister kissing.

Auler initially denied touching her, but told officers that the children were confused and that he was actually engaging in something called the “sexual predator game” which was somewhat similar to “playing house”, according to the suspect.

In the end, he admitted to fondling the child and performing sex acts on her as well as blaming the 6-year-old for the whole ordeal, after all according to Auler, it was the girl’s idea to “play the game.”

He is being held on $35,000 bond.

Police: Woman Beaten After Meeting Man On MySpace


Attack perfect example of net danger, say police:

Police in the state of North Carolina say two men used MySpace to lure a woman before beating her senselessly and then robbing her, including her car.

According to reports, late last month Sherry Poetat told investigators that she and suspect Derrionne Miller struck up a friendship through MySpace and allegedly agreed to meet up at a local motel in Monroe.

Of course, that’s a huge mistake right there. However, things get much worse after the initial meeting as unbeknownst to her, Miller brought a friend, Jamar Houston whom she did not know at the time.

After inviting both into the motel room (mistake #2), she claims that her MySpace friend and his real life friend Jamar, beat her so badly that she received several bruises, a cracked nose and stitches to her head.

Following the attack, Petat informed police that both Miller and Houston told her she could not leave the room and then proceeded to steal her car, purse and debit card.

They eventually caught up with both suspects and charged them with assault, kidnapping, and robbery.

The above profile is of Derrionne Miller.

Michael Jacques Could Face Death Penalty


Uncle of Brooke Bennett charged with kidnapping:

Michael Jacques, the uncle of Brooke Bennett has now officially been charged in her kidnapping after police found her body near his home.

Because of the federal charges, Jacques could face the death penalty even though the state of Vermont does not have capital punishment.

For now, federal prosecutors have stopped short of charging Jacques with murder because autopsy results on her are still pending.

Both Jacques, and Ray Gagnon, Bennett’s stepfather are due in court next week.

The Official Police Affidavit On Brooke Bennett


Police say that Brooke Bennett's uncle, Michael Jacques, posted the following on the now deceased 12-year-old's MySpace account in order too trick them into believing that she was abducted by a MySpace predator.

Jacques reportedly posted it the night before she died:

"I know i promised never 2 post u on this page but i know u read both of mine all the time. I don't care use my other one at my cousins because my aunt and uncle gotta know my passwords and stuff and get freaked. Nobody but u and me can know about the other one!

Brooke Bennett: 1995-2008


Body found one week after dissapearing:

The lifeless body of 12-year-old Brooke Bennett was found yesterday, near the home owned by her uncle, Michael Jacques in Randolph

Col, James Baker, said the body was found about 4:45 pm and called the death “clearly suspicious”.

According to a recently unsealed affidavit, an unidentified 14-year-old told investigators she was present on June 25th when Jacques tricked Brooke into thinking she was going to a party where he took her too his home instead to initiate her into a sex ring.

During the initiation process, the girl was led to believe that Brooke would be having sex with adult males.

When Brooke and the unnamed girl arrived with Jacques at his house, she and Brooke watched television for a while until Jacques told her to leave and then proceeded to take his 12-year-old niece upstairs.

The unidentified teenager told police she never saw Brooke again after that.

Meanwhile, Brooke's former stepfather, Raymond Gagnon from Texas, appeared in federal court Wednesday on an obstruction of justice charge in the Bennett case.

The MySpace twist involved Gagnon and Jacques, according to police.

Gagnon, who lives in San Antonio but sometimes visited the state of Vermont, accessed Brooke’s MySpace account from his computer after receiving login information from Jacques.

Police said they have evidence that postings to her MySpace were altered to make it appear that Brooke had discussed a secret meeting with someone identified as "Skittlemeup" before she disappeared.

Gagnon also admitted to possessing child pornography on his laptop.

About 300 people gathered Wednesday night in Randolph, to mourn her death.
