18-year-old Blake Holmes is from Anchorage, Alaska. He was staying with relatives in Ridgecrest, California when he befriended two girls from Ridgecrest on Facebook. His new friends are 12 and 13.
One night last week police say that at 2am local time Holmes picked the two girls up in Ridgecrest using a truck that he stole from relatives. He then allegedly took the girls to Reno, Nevada where he sexually assaulted (raped) one of the girls. In case you’re wondering that’s a 340 mile trip one way and let us not forget that is also crossing state lines with a pair of minors.
When cops caught up to him in Reno he had dumped the girls somewhere. I guess since he got what he was looking for he dumped them.
Now before anyone even dares defending this piece of filth just shut up right now. 5 or 6 years is a big difference in age when you are that young. Neither of these girls were at the age of consent and most age of consent laws allow a three year cushion, not 5 or 6 years. Again, you don’t have to be a creepy old man to be a pedophile.
