Trio of Backpage child traffickers to get sweetheart deal with no jail time

Trio of Backpage child traffickers to get sweetheart deal with no jail time
Brandi Beauchamp, Ashley Breedlove, Ciera Beauchamp

I originally posted about Brandi Beauchamp, Ashley Breedlove, and Ciera Beauchamp here. Ciera Beauchamp was the legal guardian of a 17-year-old girl who she allegedly prostituted on Backpage. Beuchamp’s sister, Brandi, and her girlfriend Breedlove, are said to have quit their jobs just so they could all collect money from this girl. The victim is said to even have contracted an STI thanks to her ‘guardian’ turning her out on Backpage.

You would think that child traffickers and child abusers like that would have the book thrown at them, but it’s not so. The prosecution has offered them a deal where they will see no jail time if they plead guilty to promoting prostitution. The most they’re looking at is two years of house arrest.

What kind of message does this send when three women were making money off of one 17-year-old girl who was forced to be violated by strangers for money? For that matter what message does that send to the victim where the suspects will only receive ankle bracelets for all the abuse she endured? This isn’t justice, it’s a mockery of what this girl had to withstand. The even sadder part is that this is what Backpage has wrought. There are multitudes of girls just like this still being turned out on Backpage and the legal system hardly seems to care.

Indy Backpage rapist ‘heard voices in his head’

Indy Backpage rapist heard voices in his head
Fort, Reaves, and Kilgore

Just because Backapge has closed down the adult sections doesn’t mean there isn’t a backlog of crimes involving the website. Just before the new year in Indianapolis 16-year-old Korey Reaves is not only accused of allegedly raping a Backpage prostitute, but another woman as well.

Police say that Reaves and 19-year-old Anthony Fort planned on robbing the prostitute at her hotel room after finding her on Backpage but during the robbery Reaves is said to have raped the woman. When a female security guard went to investigate the room Reaves allegedly raped her as well.

According to the women, Reaves became increasingly irate during the assaults and demanded money, saying he needed a “stack” for himself and Fort.

After apprehension Reaves wasn’t acting like such a tough guy. While in custody he wrote letters of apology to his victims claiming that…

…he “has a problem and often hears voices in his head that forces and compels him to make very bad decisions and choices.”

Again with the voices. I still have to ask why the ‘voices’ never tell someone to do charity work?

Anyway, Reaves has been charged as an adult and 18-year-old Myia Nicole Kilgore has been charged as an accomplice. Kilgore was reportedly a getaway driver for the duo.

While all this was happening Backpage was still getting paid.

Just because the head honchos of Backpage are facing criminal charges, that doesn’t mean that the problems have gone away. For example, in Indianapolis, three women are accused of prostituting a 17-year-old on Backpage.

24-year-old Ciera Beauchamp was the legal guardian of the 17-year-old girl she is accused of prostituting on Backpage. Beauchamp also lived with her sister, Brandi Beauchamp, and her girlfriend, Ashley Breedlove. All three women are accused of using the money the victim made to pay their own bills. Breedlove and Brandi Beauchamp even allegedly quit their jobs just so they could collect the money from the victim. The victim is also said to have contracted an STI from one of the johns.

I know I’m perpetually repeating myself, but I’ll keep banging this drum until there’s no longer a need to. This is what Backpage is defending as not only free speech but a solution to child prostitution and human trafficking. Prostituting a 17-year-old girl so leeches of society don’t have to work real jobs is neither a solution nor is it even remotely free speech.

Kik kreeper says “I’m not him” while being arrested for soliciting 10-year-old

Lance Kyer

30-year-old Lance Kyer of Indianapolis was recently arrested for allegedly soliciting a 10-year-old boy for sex over messaging app Kik. That’s not a typo, the kid was ten-years-old. Don’t get ahead of me just yet.

The boy’s mother had contacted police after finding explicit messages on her son’s Kik account. Police then posed as the boy in order to arrest Kyer. What happens next is the stuff of bad 80’s sitcoms…

When the investigators arrived to meet Kyer and identified himself as the police, Kyer responded, “I’m not him!” and tried to get away. He was quickly taken into custody.

Like the police would go “Ok, sorry. Enjoy your night”. That would almost be funny if we weren’t talking about a real predator here…

During the Kik exchange, the investigator maintained he was 10 years old and asked Kyer to confirm his age. Kyer said he was 30 years old. Kyer then asked when they could meet; the investigator asked Kyer what they would do if they did meet up. Kyer responded that “we can watch movies (and) maybe fool around if you like,” according to court documents.

So basically this 30-year-old man was asking a 10-year-old boy to Netflix and chill. Not only that but Kyer allegedly admitted to police that he had planned on travelling to Ohio to see another boy.

Now on to what you’re all screaming at your various screens of various size. What the hell was a 10-year-old boy doing on Kik? I’m glad that a parent was aware enough to detect what was happening but no 10-year-old needs to be on Kik especially since it’s rife with, you guessed it, sex offenders and pedophiles. You may as well just leave your kid duct taped to a school crossing sign at that point.

Sex offender stole wi-fi to try to contact victim

Sex offender jailed over online chat attempt with his victim:

Shawn Piercefield
Shawn Piercefield

This may be a worst case scenario but this is why you don’t leave your wi-fi unprotected.

26-year-old Shawn Piercefield of Indianapolis is a registered sex offender. He’s on probation for felony charges of soliciting a child for sex. As part of his probation he’s not supposed to be on the internet. Then again how many RSOs actually follow their probation guidelines?

During a routine check of his house officers found a cell phone that Piercefield was allegedly using in order to try to contact his victim over the mobile messaging app Kik. With Kik you need an internet connection, either you cell phone’s data connection or wi-fi. Piercefield was said to be using his neighbors wi-fi to try to get to his victim.

By the way that’s a probation violation and back to jail he goes. Maybe if they kept creepers like this in jail in the first place instead of giving them suspended sentences we wouldn’t have as many of these incidents.

Not the craigslist killing you’re looking for, Indiana Guardsmen killed during robbery

Friends: National Guard vet, 32, fatally shot trying to buy iPad off Craigslist:

Lizton Guardsman slain buying iPad, police say:

Tryon and Tyshaune Kincade
Tryon and Tyshaune Kincade

Yes, I know. You want to read about the craigslist thrill kill that recently took place in Pennsylvania. Don’t worry, I’ll get to that. However there are other craigslist killings that haven’t made the national news that are just as equally disheartening and disturbing.

This past week 32-year-old James Vester of Lizton, Indiana, was shot and killed when trying to purchase what he believed to be an iPad through craigslist. Instead he was allegedly shot and killed by Indianapolis brothers Tryon Kincade, 19, and Tyshaune Kincade, 18. Robbery is said to be the motive.

Vester was no rube. He was an Indiana Guardsman who had toured Iraq and probably knew how to take care of himself. He even went to meet the ‘sellers’ in the light of day. Unfortunately even the best soldiers aren’t bulletproof. Tragically he leaves behind a wife and a 1-year-old son. All because two scumbag brothers were too lazy to make an honest living. Yet a man who probably just wanted to get someone a nice Christmas present for his family is now dead over probably just a few hundred bucks.

It doesn’t matter who you are, what you know, or how innocent your intentions are. If you do any kind of business on craigslist you are taking your life in your hands.

UPDATE 12/12/2013: Police believe that the Kincades are involved in several other craigslist robberies.

Also the brothers have pleaded not guilty.

The widow of James Vester released a statement in which she said…

I am so happy his story has went viral worldwide so maybe people will think twice about trying to run a scam/robbery/murder through Craigslist or any other site. I want to focus on all of the good Jim brought to this world and not focus on the people who did this to him.

My apologies Mrs. Vester. While I’m sure your husband was a good man the world occasionally needs to be reminded that evil lurks within it.

UPDATE 5/6/2015: Tyshaune Kincade was sentenced to 50 years behind bars after previously pleading guilty to the murder of James Vester. Tryon Kincade is set to go to trial in June of 2015.

UPDATE 6/15/2015: Tryon Kincade was sentenced to 33 years after also pleading guilty.

December craigslist murder in Indy over an iPhone

Dominique Clanton
Dominique Clanton

Dominique Clanton, 18, charged with murder, robbery in iPhone Craigslist killing:

Second arrest made in Craigslist, iPhone murder case:

On December 17th 31-year-old Nishant Patel of Indianapolis was shot and killed after trying to sell his iPhone on craigslist. Police say that Bryant “BeDo” Dowdy was the triggerman and that 18-year-old Dominique Clanton has also been charged with Mr. Patel’s murder.

Apparently there is no honor among thieves because police say that Dowdy not only shot and killed Patel but shot both Dominique Clanton and Eric Clanton in order to eliminate all the witnesses. Eric Clanton did not survive his injuries.

Two people dead over a trendy piece of plastic. Such a waste. However it does show once again just how dangerous doing any kind of business on craigslist still is. It’s not the online hippy commune of peace, love and sharing that it once was. It’s now an online directory of potential victims.

UPDATE 4/21/2016: Dowdy has been convicted of murdering Nishant Patel and was already serving a 75-year-sentence for the shootings of the Clantons. Dominique Clanton pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit armed robbery.
