Pedophile Tracking Knox County Man Indicted in Child Abuse Case

A Knox County man has finally been sentenced in a child abuse case.

The Corbin News Journal reports that Skylar Wilson was given a seven year sentence for beating his five year old daughter. Wilson stuck a plea deal with prosecutors.


Kentucky State Police say Wilson admitted to pinching or squeezing the child to discipline her.  Troopers say the case was much more severe. The girl was reportedly found with bruises, cuts and scabs covering her body.

Pedophile Tracking Madison County Man Indicted

The child pornography case against a Madison County man is moving forward.

According to the Richmond Register, a grand jury has indicted Frankie Hardy on twenty counts of possession of child pornography. Hardy was arrested in February after a state police undercover operation.


Investigators say Hardy was also sharing images of child exploitation online.

Private Detective: Second Arrest Made in Human Trafficking Ring

Deputies have made a second arrest in a suspected human trafficking ring uncovered last month, accusing a man of abducting, raping, beating and then holding a mother against her will for several days.

Marqui “Marc” Montez Church, 29, of Lake City, Fla., was charged Thursday with kidnapping, false imprisonment, sexual assault and assault — all felonies — after a distraught woman was found wandering March 7 on the side of the road in rural Columbia County, four days after she went missing. Church was booked into the Columbia County Facility where he’s being held without bond.


The victim’s sister reported her missing March 5 when she didn’t return after borrowing the sister’s car to help a friend move two days earlier, according to the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office. The victim wasn’t picking up her phone, money was missing from bank accounts, and she had missed a birthday for her 5-year-old daughter, whom she’s rarely away from, her sister told investigators.

Deputies searched several locations where her cellphone was tracked but found no signs of the victim or her sister’s car, according to an arrest report. When deputies tried to reach her on the phone, a man’s voice answered several times and then hung up.

On March 7, the victim was found in distress on the side of a road in the northeast part of the city, saying she had been kidnapped, beaten and raped, according to the report.

She had gone to help with the move of her friend, identified in the report as “Jackie,” and left her sister’s car parked at Jackie’s home, the victim told investigators. The pair had traveled to an unidentified house to sell some lawn equipment when three men ambushed the victim, forcing her into a tan car with tinted windows.

They took her to an unknown home where the men repeatedly beat and raped her over several days until one morning she escaped, the victim told investigators. She was treated for soreness to her neck and the back of her head where they had struck her several times and given a rape kit, according to the report.

She told investigators that she overheard the suspects repeatedly calling out the name “Church.” He became a person of interest and later a suspect when investigators found he had been using the victim’s cell phone, deputies said.

On March 8, the victim’s sister’s vehicle was found along with three suspects, including Church. He was allegedly carrying the credit card of the victim’s sister and the victim’s phone when he was taken into custody.

Afterward, deputies obtained a search warrant for a home, and James Lauvalle Harris was one of two people found inside when deputies raided. The victim later identified Harris, 21, as one of the men who helped kidnap her and hold her captive, deputies said.

During questioning, Harris told investigators the victim had pleaded with her captors to let her go, saying she wanted to get back to her children. Harris alleged that Church had been selling the victim’s body for $20 to $30, and he kept the victim and others captive by threatening to hurt them if they didn’t do what he ordered.

Harris, who was arrested last month, faces charges of kidnapping, false imprisonment, sexual battery, theft and maintaining a home for illegal activities, according to the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office. He remains in custody on $325,000 bond.

Identity Theft Greensboro, NC Man Arrested

Police arrested a man today who they said used another person’s identity and Social Security number to open a credit card account and obtain cell phones.

Essam Bassam Allamadani, 30, of 3244 S. Holden Road, in Greensboro, faces four charges of identity theft, according to arrest warrants.


Allamadani obtained two cell phones from Sprint and one from Cricket since August 2013, then conducted phone transactions totaling more than $3,510, according to arrest warrants. He also obtained a GE Money Car Care Credit Card and used it for $686 in charges, according to warrants.

Allamadani remains in the Guilford County jail. His bail is $300,000.

His first court appearance is 2 p.m. Monday.

Wrongful Death 3 New Suspects in Portland Homicide

Officials have announced the arrest of three additional people who police said are connected to the Feb. 28 deadly shooting of 20-year-old Esteban “Steve” Del Cid.

The Los Angeles Police Department on Friday confirmed that 19-year-old Austin Luepke was arrested by detectives by the LAPD. The arrest occurred Thursday afternoon, a LAPD spokesperson said. Luepke was arrested on an Oregon fugitive of justice warrant. KOIN 6 News has learned the warrant charges him with murder, menacing and unlawful use of a weapon.


On Wednesday, Portland Police Sgt. Pete Simpson confirmed 20-year-old Timothy Jacob Noe was arrested Monday in Gresham. Noe was charged with murder, menacing, disorderly conduct and unlawful use of a weapon. He was arraigned Wednesday and plead not guilty at the Multnomah County Justice Center.

Officials confirm that prior to the arrests of Luepke and Noe, 18-year-old Taras Burchak and 19-year-old Michael Kyree Knox were both arrested in Clark County, Washington. They are both charged with three counts of hindering prosecution and one count of unlawful possession of a firearm, court records show.

Police have not said specifically how each person is involved with the alleged murder of Del Cid, who lived in Tualatin.

Officers responded to reports of a shooting Feb. 28 just after 3 a.m. near N. Vancouver and Ivy streets. As officers were responding, they learned that Del Cid and several other people were already on the Legacy Emanuel Medical Center campus in a Honda Accord. Police said the group was trying to find the hospital’s emergency room but got lost and called 911.

Despite efforts to save him by people in the car and doctors, he passed away.

Police learned the shooting actually occurred near Northeast Rodney Avenue and Cook Street.

Court documents submitted earlier this week show that Noe reported to jail staff that he had been homeless for two years. KOIN 6 News has learned that Noe is not homeless, but often stays with associates throughout the metro. According to his Facebook page, he has attended schools in Ridgefield, Wash. and Milwaukie, Ore.

Burchak is scheduled to be arraigned Friday at the Multnoamh County Justice Center. He and Knox were both arrested Tuesday, April 21. Noe remains in custody at the Multnomah County Detention Center. He is scheduled to be back in court later this month.

Knox remains in custody in the Clark County Jail. He is now fighting extradition back to Oregon, court records show. He is scheduled to be back in court May 22.

Representatives with the LAPD and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office both declined to release a booking photo of Luepke. Washington State does not release booking photos of persons not being sought, so there is no available mug shot for Knox.

Police said they expect more information to be released on the case Friday.

Pedophile Tracking Orange County, FL High School Security Guard Charged

An Orange County high school security guard has been arrested on charges of sexual crimes involving a child.

Deputies arrested Patrick Collins on Thursday.

Collins is accused of following a child into a bathroom stall at Evans High School and touching the student inappropriately.

According to statements from witnesses, Collins followed a student into the bathroom, where he started to kiss and touch the child in the “private area.”


He’s also accused of exchanging nude pictures with the child.

The two reportedly met during volleyball season and had conversations about poetry and sports.

They later exchanged text messages and arranged for a weekend meeting where Collins allegedly drove down a street near the school and performed oral sex on the victim, authorities said.

Some of the allegations date back to October 2014.

The allegations came to light when someone told a teacher what may have happened with the security guard and the student.

School district officials said there is a law that would keep Collins from working at any other school if he is convicted in the case. An internal investigation is underway.

Students at Evans High School told Channel 9 that they were shocked by the arrest and said Collins’ mugshot made the rounds on campus Friday.

Identity Theft Former KS DL Examiner Faces Several Charges

A former Kansas driver’s license examiner in Johnson County has been charged with taking bribes to supply phony licenses to dozens of unqualified applicants who paid as much as $2,500 apiece, authorities said Thursday.

Authorities arrested 33 people this week in connection with the case, which investigators have dubbed Operation Chameleon.

The former Department of Revenue employee, Samantha Jo Moore, 28, of Kansas City, worked at the Mission office. Arrested Tuesday, she is charged with 51 felonies.

The investigation by agents of the Kansas Department of Revenue is ongoing, Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe and Kansas Secretary of Revenue Nick Jordan said while announcing the charges at a press conference in Olathe.

Howe and Jordan said they could not provide many details of the investigation, which they said has been going for a “considerable” time.

Part of the investigation includes determining how the fraudulent licenses may have been used, Jordan said.


“It’s very disturbing, he said. “These are extremely important documents.”

The charges against Moore include multiple counts of bribery, official misconduct, computer crime, identity theft, felony use of a driver’s license and making a false writing. She also is charged with filing fraudulent Kansas income tax returns for 2012 and 2013.

The alleged crimes occurred between 2011 and 2013, and include allegations that Moore took actions to destroy or tamper with evidence. She is being held in the Johnson County Jail on a bond of $250,000.

Moore was the only revenue employee charged in the case. She began working for the department in 2011, which according to court documents is when the alleged criminal activity began.

But Jordan said he could not comment on when Moore’s employment ended.

Jordan said that in his five years as director, it was the first time there has been such a level of fraud uncovered.

“It’s an unfortunate situation,” he said.

Howe said he could not talk about how many more arrests could be expected, but he released the names and photographs of two people authorities believe helped direct license seekers to Moore. The Star is not naming those people because Howe would not say whether they have been charged.

Three other people, described as facilitators, also allegedly direct clients to Moore, officials said.

According to court documents, Shaylynn K. Celedon, 32, of Kansas City, Kan., faces 21 counts of bribery, felony use of a driver’s license, making a false writing and identity theft.

According to court documents, she allegedly bribed Moore on seven occasions between June 2012 and February 2015. Her request to lower her $250,000 bond was denied Tuesday.

Luis Renova Contreras, 43, of Kansas City, Kan., is accused of 17 felony counts, including five counts of bribery. He was released from custody after posting a $250,000 bond. He is required to be under house arrest as a condition of bond, according to court records.

Another Kansas City, Kan., woman, 27-year-old Carolina Mejia, is charged with bribing Moore on two occasions in 2011 and faces four other felony charges. Her bond was reduced from $250,000 to $100,000 during her court hearing.

Twenty-nine others arrested this week have been charged with single counts of bribery, felony use of a driver’s license and making a false writing. Each was released after posting a $2,500 bond, according to jail records.

Court and jail records identify them as Jesus Flores-Basurto, 38, Octavio Rodriguez-Rodriguez, 38, Victor Jimenez-Flores, 50, and Edgar Hernandez-Gonzalez, 38, of Overland Park; Jose Aguero, 37, Hector Castro-Vasquez, 24, Isabel Chavez, 35, and Fidel Valverde, 49, of Olathe; Andres Ruiz-Arellanes, 47, of Merriam; and Francisco Cacique, 50, Pedro Olvera, 43, Veronica Anchondo-Acosta, 43, Alexander Arroyo, 35, Ana Castro-Villalobos, 39, Hector Castro, 47, Porfirio Espinoza-Nevarez, 43, Cristina Hernandez, 34, Ricardo Jimenez-Serrano, 33, Edson Mera, 39, Lazaro Ortega, 36, Alvino Ramirez, 38, Marcos Reyna, 36, Juan Valles, 44, Refugio Hernandez, 40, Justino Mejia-Lopez, 42, Alfredo Mercado, 44, Andres Rangel-Pena, 36, Jesus Gomez, 42, and Fermin Zepeda, 44, all of Kansas City, Kan.
