Pastor John Helmuth Arrested In Child Sex Sting

An associate pastor and recording artist from South Carolina has been arrested after allegedly soliciting sex online from someone whom he believed to be a 13-year-old girl but was instead an undercover officer posing as one.

John David Helmuth, 44, of Pelzer was arrested on Tuesday in connection with the incident and charged with 10 counts of criminal solicitation of a minor and one count of attempted criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

Helmuth reportedly made contact with the undercover officer beginning on June 23rd and after chatting back and forth for some time, Helmuth arranged to meet "her" at a local park so that he could "kiss, hold, touch (her) all over and have sex."

Awwww, isn't that sweet boys and girls? How nice. That good ol' Reverend Helmuth there for ya.

Anyway, the so-called pastor was arrested by police after he arrived (of course) at the park.

According to WFFY4, Helmuth was the associate pastor at Tabernacle of Faith in Piedmont and also lead singer of a Christian group called "Elias".

Bond was set at $100,000.

Richard Alden Samuel McCroskey Held In Murder Of 4

A 20-year-old California man has been arrested by police after allegedly killing a pastor and three other people in the small college town of Farmville, Virgina.

The suspect, Richard Alden Samuel McCroskey III, of Castro Valley, was taken into custody at the Richmond International Airport in Virgina sometime on Sunday morning after officers found him asleep in the baggage claim area.

McCroskey, an aspiring rapper in the so-called horrorcore genre, is accused in the slayings of Mark Niederbrock, a pastor at the Walker's Presbyterian Church in the Hixburg, Debra S. Kelley, an associate professor of Sociology & Criminal Justice at Longwood,, their daughter Emma Niederbrock and a friend of hers, Melanie Wells of Berryville, West Virigina.

Mark and Debra had reportedly been separated for at least a year but still remained friends.

Police believe McCroskey and Emma Niederbrock knew each other and that they were "romantically involved" as he had recently flown to meet the young 16-year-old.

He was slated to have been gone two weeks, according to his sister.

On one of McCroskey's 4 MySpace pages, Emma Niederbrock wrote several messages to him including the following dated on September 5th:
"Babyyy you leave TONIGHT!!!!!!!!!! :DDDD and then tomorrw i see youuuuu!!!!!!!!!! :x gahhh i cant [explicit deleted] wait<3333>
Investigators have not released a motive as of yet or how the slayings might or even when have taken place.

All four bodies however were discovered on Friday at the home of Debra Kelly after the mother of 18-year-old Melanie Wells called police twice asking them to check in on her daughter.

The day before, on her first request, police had visited the home and were greeted at the door by McCroskey who calmly told them that Wells was at the movies with a friend.

And 12 hours prior to that, police recalled ticketing him for driving the pastor's car without a license.

On the Internet and using the screename, "samissyko", McCroskey also maintained another profile on the popular site found here which is solely dedicated specifically for his style of music.

More information on him and his music be found on his third MySpace account as well. The wannabe artists also usually uses as his e-mail address which links him to his personal website found here which also links him to MySpace #4.

He created that site in March of this year using the name "Sam Juggalo".

McCroskey also operated accounts on Bebo and Twitter and several other sites that aren't really worth mentioning.

A below Youtube video of of his room shot by himself is visible below.

As you can tell, our suspect really wasn't anything special at all, but just another sad twenty something white male from suburbia obsessed with some really crappy music and no goals whatsoever.

Why young females still fall victim to the badass mentality in the 21st century is beyond me. The only goal McCroskey could probably have ever achieved in his life was getting a nice single wide with some land and trees surrounded by it...maybe even by a creek or river in his mid 40's if he had worked hard enough.

Regardless, McCroskey's sister, Sarah, told the AP that their family was not a "Leave It To Beaver kind of family" and that his father had played guitar in a band called S&M, which pretty much confirms her story.

She also told the San Francisco Chronicle that he had dropped out of High School, because he was "always the kid that got picked on."

However, information crawled by reveals that the Juggalo once played football for his local high school until he was was expelled.

Anyway, according to the paper:
"Sarah McCroskey said she saw an interview after her brother's arrest in which he told a television reporter, "Jesus told me to do it." But she said it wasn't a sign of a psychotic break. "He's just a complete sarcastic -hole," she said. "That's just his sense of humor."
Nothing like having a sense of humor after brutally slaughtering four people, eh?

Both he and Sarah had also lived at home with their father after he and his wife recently separated.

She has released a statement on her own MySpace found here.

Richard McCroskey has since been charged with murder, robbery and grand larceny.

UPDATE: Victim's died from head injuries

No Post For A Week

Sorry kids, I'm taking a week off. So no post until then.

I do want to apologize for the lack of stories lately and it probably won't be back and running like it used to until at least October. But I'll definitely get about 20-30 stories up for the month of September.

Sadly, the lack of entries have nothing to do with the state of the world we live in.

Time is the only enemy here...
