This may just be the worst sex crime attributed to craigslist I have ever posted.
44-year-old Darrin Vaughn Daily of Newberg, Oregon has been arrested for running a sex ring that involved the rapes of girls as young as 4 with some of them forced into having sex with his dog. Daily allegedly used craigslist to recruit other men to his depraved activities.
Two teen girls came forward saying that Daily forced them into sex with the men he recruited from craigslist where he often recorded or photographed the acts.
On Daily’s computer they found pictures of a 4-year-old girl being sexually assaulted and a 14-year-old girl being forced to have sex with a dog.
Also arrested were Patricio Moreno, 43, Robert D. Thompson, David Garcia, 41, and Alisa Nice, 31. The men are accused of having sex with the girls. No word on what Nice’s connection is to the operation.
My gut tells me that the ad was probably posted in the casual encounters section. This just goes to further prove that user policing just doesn’t work on craigslist. Again the people who are using craigslist for stuff like buying a couch aren’t going to flag illegal casual encounters ads because they’re not even going into that section. And the people who are using that section aren’t flagging illegal ads because that’s what a lot of them are looking for.
As usual no comment from craigslist.
