FBI seeks information on prolific social media predator

FBI seeks information on prolific social media predator

Nikko Adolfo Perez

The FBI is looking for more victims of Nikko Adolfo Perez of Atwater, California. Perez has been indicted on several counts of crimes relating to children and social media including receipt of child porn. The 26-year-old Perez is believed to have used a number of social media platforms including Omegle, Instagram, Snapchat, and Kik, among others to coerce children into sending him explicit pictures.

Two victims of Perez are already known and they are two boys from Utah ages 8 and 10. Perez allegedly befriended his victims using the screen name of ‘captainamerica272018’ He was also said to have offered his victims credit on the Google Play Store to send him the pictures and if that didn’t work he would threaten their families with violence. These are the usual tactics of many online predators. The FBI believes that Perez may have more victims and are asking for the public’s help in finding them.

Please contact the FBI by calling 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324) and selecting the option for the Nikko Adolfo Perez investigation. You may also contact your local FBI office, the nearest American Embassy or Consulate, or you can submit a tip online at tips.fbi.gov.

In order to protect your children from predators like this, you have to know that none of the apps and websites mentioned above are suitable for children. The terms of service of these platforms set the minimum age of usage at 13 and even that’s too young for some of these social apps in my opinion. 8 and 10 are way too young for any child to be on any of these apps unsupervised. If you’re letting your kids run free on these apps you may as well just look up the nearest sex offender on your local registry and drop your kids off at their house.

Fake craigslist doctor accused of sexual assaults in Utah

Fake craigslist doctor accused of sexual assaults in Utah

Borzin Mottaghian

34-year-old Borzin Mottaghian, of Provo, Utah, has been charged in the sexual assaults of several women while posing as a doctor. According to police, Mottaghian placed an ad on craigslist offering women $200 for testing a new medical device. When the women showed up to Mottaghian’s office, he would perform ‘exams’ with his fingers and a metal rod. Mottaghian has been charged with 12 counts of object rape.

While medical researchers do often post ads for willing participants on craigslist, legitimate ones are affiliated with either medical schools or legitimate medical practices and research facilities. Do your research before responding to one of these ads as fake craigslist doctors who sexually assault women is not a new thing.

8-year-old allegedly solicited for explicit pics on Musical.ly

8-year-old allegedly solicited for explicit pics on Musical.ly

This story is a month old but I’m posting it anyway because it shows a continuing and disturbing trend.

In Centreville, Utah, an 8-year-old girl was allegedly solicited for explicit pics on the music sharing app Musical.ly. Musical.ly is a social app where you can share short videos set to music. Users can also message each other through the app.

According to Centerville police, an online predator tried coercing an 8-year-old girl on the app into taking her clothes off…

At first, the person asked the young girl for a picture of her face, then asked for one of her clothed body. And later, the person asked for a picture of “her stomach a little,” according to the warrant.

The person kept asking for more pictures, revealing a little more each time until the person eventually requested nude photos. The unknown person “sent 14 consecutive messages asking (the girl) to send a picture,” the warrant states.

“Pull your pants down like I asked u to do,” and “take it off now,” were among the messages sent, the warrant states. “Its just between me and nobody will see. plzs trust me. plzs I’m crying again.”

When the girl refused the predator tried extorting the 8-year-old girl into sending explicit pics by threatening to post their conversation publicly on the app.

At the time the article was posted, no arrest had been made.

BUT WHY ARE PARENTS ALLOWING KIDS THIS YOUNG ON A SOCIAL APP BY THEMSELVES??? This isn’t our first story about this happening on Musical.ly. The past victims were 6 and 7 years old. No child this young should ever be allowed on any social app unsupervised and in reality, shouldn’t be allowed on this app at all. Musical.ly isn’t supposed to be used by anyone under the age of 13 according to their terms of service.

If you’re letting your kids use Musical.ly on their own, you’re basically opening a window for predators to come into your home.

Craigslist creeper calls cops on craigslist con

Craigslist creeper calls cop on craigslist con

Nick Deelstra

54-year-old Nick Deelstra, of Logan, Utah, has been arrested for allegedly soliciting a child for sex on craigslist. The way he was caught may be the first time I’ve ever heard of something like this.

Deelstra is said to have called the FBI, claiming to be the victim of a craigslist scam. What scam is that you ask? He reportedly told the FBI he was being blackmailed by a man claiming to be the father of a 16-year-old boy. The ‘father’ wanted money from Deelstra because the ‘boy’ had wrecked the car on his way to see Deelstra. Why was the boy on his way to see Deelstra? Why to have sex with him of course, allegedly.

In a Sept. 8 interview with police, Deelstra reportedly admitted to knowing the boy was 16, but still agreed to meet with him for sex acts. He was arrested by Logan police.

Did he think he would somehow not get arrested? While in other situations it’s always better to go to police about a blackmailer, I wonder how successful the blackmailers are when they’re extorting child predators.

No word on if the blackmailers are being investigated.

Once again, I doubt this was his first craigslist rodeo, meaning craigslist is a playground for pedophiles, and the website refuses to do anything about it.

UPDATE 11/21/2017: After pleading guilty in October to one count of third-degree felony attempted sexual sexual exploitation of a minor, Deelstra was sentenced to time served along with 60 hours of community service and three years probation.

Utah teacher accused of inappropriate relationship with 17-year-old student

Utah teacher accused of inappropriate relationship with 17-year-old student

Aaron Karl Esplin

(Story broke 4/21/2017)

40-year-old Aaron Karl Esplin, of Hurricane, Utah, is, or was, a high school teacher. He’s accused of allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old female student of his. Considering this is a teacher we’re talking about, you know that Snapchat is involved. Esplin is believed to have requested nude pictures of the girl through the picture sharing app.

The age of consent for women is 16-years-old, however, the law also states that anyone under 18 can not consent to a relationship with anyone who is ten years or more older. That’s all moot though since Esplin was said to be in possession of explicit pictures of the girl, which is legally considered child porn.

This shows that social media can be used by sketchy teachers like this to circumvent parents and have direct access to your children. I may be an old man yelling at a cloud, but I think it’s inappropriate for teachers to have any kind of communication with students that’s not through their parents or properly authorized school channels.

Isaac Kemp may be the ultimate Kik kreeper

Isaac Kemp may be the ultimate Kik kreeper

I really wanted to find a mugshot of this creep, but I couldn’t find one with 100% certainty that it was him, but I digress.

44-year-old Isaac Kemp of Draper, Utah, has been charged with 65 felonies in the state of Utah concerning the solicitation of two underage girls from Nebraska and North Carolina, but that description barely scratches the surface.

Kemp is also accused of allegedly raping an underage girl from Nebraska after posing as a 16-year-old boy on Kik. After collecting several explicit pictures and videos of the girl he then reportedly told her that his ‘uncle’ would be coming to visit her and that she would have to have sex with him in order to get her ‘experienced’. Police say that he raped the girl in a Nebraska hotel room and gave her morning after pills. Kemp was originally charged with $1 million bail in Nebraska, but it was lowered and he was then able to post bail.

In the North Carolina case, Kemp was allegedly exchanging explicit pictures with a 12-year-old girl on Kik. So far no charges have been filed in North Carolina.

Kemp was said to have been very particular with his electronics when it came to other members of his family…

“In an interview with Kemp’s wife, she said she suspected that something was going on with Kemp, as far back as several years. She said Kemp disappears frequently to the bathroom while at home for long periods of time, and he takes his phone with him,” the charges state. “Kemp’s wife said that Kemp is very private with his cellphone and that no one is allowed to look at it and no one other than Kemp knows the pass code.”

This reminds me of a time where a former co-worker came to me and asked me advice about their friend’s peculiar behavior about their computer. This was in a day before smart phones were the norm. She said that her friend would never let his wife or kids use the computer, and it was always password protected. I said he’s either having an affair or he’s into child porn. Sadly, it was the latter, and the guy ended up going away for a long time leaving his wife and kids to fend for themselves.

As you should know by now, Kik is teeming with sex offenders and pedophiles, and as shown here they will go to preposterous extremes in order to violate your children. They will traverse great distances, spend extravagant amounts of money, and make up the most cockamamie stories just to get what they want from children. If you’re not watching your kids’ online habits, they are.

UPDATE 2/9/2017: Thanks to reader Kate who was able to find a mughost of Kemp.

Isaac Kemp

UPDATE 12/30/2017: Kemp has pleaded guilty to production of child pornography and travel with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct. He could be looking at 30-60 years behind bars depending on if the sentences are concurrent or consecutive. Sentencing is set for April 2018.

Utah craigslist creeper wanted to tickle girls

Ryan Sherry

Speaking of creepy craigslist ads police in Utah arrested 31-year-old Ryan Sherry of Spanish Fork, Utah, on attempted child rape charges after investigators found the following ad in the personals section of their local craigslist.

As the officer was browsing other personal ads, he found one describing a man as someone who “just love[s] the sound of a girl’s genuine laughter. The best way to solicit such laughter is to tickle her.”

Yeah, that ad couldn’t have possibly have been written by some kind of predator.

As has become the norm he was contacted by investigators posing as a 13-year-old girl. Allegedly that prospect thrilled Sherry to no end…

Using the false persona, the officer asked Sherry what would happen if they met up. Sherry reportedly told the officer he wanted to “make out and have sex.” The officer asked if Sherry really wanted to have sex with a 13-year-old. According to police reports, Sherry said, “Well, yeah.”

Police reports state Sherry continually shared how much he wanted to have sex with the 13-year-old girl, and described in lengthy and graphic detail what would happen if they met up.

Police continued these conversations with Sherry for six months. So at his arrest after this six month investigation Sherry said he didn’t know if he would have actually gone through with having sex with a 13-year-old girl. That’s an answer that could have made Chris Hansen’s head explode.

Police should really start billing craigslist for trying to clean up craigslist’s own yard.

Utah Breeder killed 6 newborns because of meth

Megan Huntsman

You may remember the story from back in April about Megan Huntsman from Pleasant Grove, Utah. She was arrested for allegedly murdering seven newborns found in her house. Recently more details have been made public about the crimes.

According to investigators Huntsman killed her babies because she was a meth addict who simply did not want to care for any children. Forensic investigators have also said that one of the babies was stillborn. Not that murdering six babies is much better than killing seven.

DNA testing also showed that all seven of the babies were fathered by Huntsman’s estranged husband who is said to have first discovered the bodies. He did time for meth spending several years in jail. Police are unsure how he could have not been aware of his wife’s many pregnancies. Since I’ve never been hooked on meth I can’t speak towards its cognitive hazards but you would think that even a tweaker would notice seven pregnancies that were carried to term not to mention seven home births. Yet police say that he is not implicated in the killings.

As I said in my previous post about Huntsman, abortion is readily available in Utah. While I don’t agree with the practice It would have been more responsible of her than murdering her newborns.

If you or someone you know has a meth addiction you may want to think about contacting the national substance abuse referral line at 1-800-662-HELP (4357) or visit their website.

UPDATE 4/15/2015: Back in February Huntsman pleaded guilty. It’s more than likely she’ll spend the rest of her life in prison.

UPDATE 4/21/2015: Yesterday Huntsman was sentenced to up to life in prison.

UPDATE 5/31/2015: Huntsman won’t be eligible for parole until 2064. She’ll be 89 by then.

Utah Breeder accused of killing 7 newborns

Police arrest woman after finding 7 dead babies in cardboard boxes in garage of Utah home:

Police find remains of seven babies at Utah home:

7 Babies Found Dead in Utah Home; Woman Arrested:

Megan Huntsman

Police in Pleasant Grove, Utah, have arrested 39-year-old Megan Huntsman for allegedly killing 7 newborns that she gave birth to between 1996 and 2006. One of the bodies was found in a house that Huntsman used to live in by her estranged husband. He called police who found 6 more bodies. The causes of death have not been disclosed as of yet.

Now I know what some of you are thinking. In Mormon controlled Utah it must be next to impossible to get an abortion. Not so. From everything that I’ve read abortions in Utah are quite available.

What I don’t get is how was this incubator pregnant seven times and gave birth, I would imagine at home, seven times and not one person she knew could put one and one together? Obviously she can’t use the ‘I didn’t even know I was pregnant excuse’. That may work with one pregnancy but not seven. Technically, if the charges are true, she is a serial killer.

Utah does have the death penalty but only for aggravated murder. I think this more than meets the definition. What do you think? Should she be given the death penalty for the murder of seven of her own newborns if found guilty?

Thanks to Helen for the tip.

Methadone in a sippy cup

Jill Goff

Utah mother charged with child abuse homicide after her son overdoses:

Tooele 2-year-old dies after mom gave him methadone, police say:

32-year-old Jill Goff of Tooele, Utah has been charged with homicide after her 2-year-old son, Aiden Goff, ingested methadone and died.

Goff allegedly kept the methadone in a Gatorade bottle between her bed and the wall. She claims she poured the liquid into Aiden’s sippy cup and gave it to him. She then gave it to her other kids ages 5 and 8. When the 8-year-old complained that the drink tasted like medicine it was only then that Goff realized she gave the kids methadone. Sounds like an inadvertent accident right? Where’s the malice you ask?

Instead of calling 911 she tried to get Aiden to vomit and then took a nap with him. She said she didn’t call 911 at first because she was scared. Probably scared of being arrested. As usual the fear of arrest outweighs the well-being of a child. Now instead of a neglect charge she’s been charged with murder.

Let that be a lesson. Would you rather go to jail for a little bit and have live children or go to jail possibly for life and have a dead child on your conscience. Think about it.
