Pedophile Tracking Cayuga County, NY Man Admits Trying to Lure Children

A Cayuga County man admitted today that tried to lure what he thought were children into sex through Craigslist.

Robert J. Stachura, 45, pleaded guilty in federal court to using the Internet to try to coerce a child into sexual activity. He was arrested last year after he tried to meet a 15-year-old and a 13-year-old in a public park for sex.

Stachura faces a mandatory minimum of 10 years in prison and a maximum of life behind bars, Assistant U.S. Attorney Lisa Fletcher said. U.S. District Judge David Hurd scheduled sentencing for June 4.

Police discovered Stachura through advertisements he placed on Craigslist in which he stated that he was seeking sexual contact with minors. He posted lewd images with the advertisements.

In May, a Cayuga County sheriff’s detective engaged Stachura in online conversation, posing as a 15-year-old boy, according to court records. Stachura requested to meet him, and asked him to bring a 13-year-old friend to meet in person for a sexual encounter, court papers said.

Stachura was arrested when he arrived at the meeting spot, in a public park in Auburn.
An investigation and interview with Stachura revealed that there was child pornography on his computer, court papers said.

Arson Investigation Whitley County Hotel Fire

Crews were called out to reports of a hotel on fire Saturday in Whitley County. Fire investigators say the early morning blaze may have been intentionally set.

Just after 6 a.m., 50 firefighters and a total of 5 fire departments rushed to the Mountain View Lodge off Cumberland Falls Highway. When they arrived on scene, firefighters say they saw smoke coming from different ends of the building. The fire was located in one of the hotel’s 300 rooms.

Corbin police detectives say they were immediately suspicious about the fire because the hotel has been closed for several years and the electricity shut off.

“No body was supposed to be in here we found some evidence that people had been staying here… Mail and clothing things like that,” said William Rose from the Corbin Police Dept.

Detectives say there was no one else on the scene when they arrived, and so far they haven’t pin-pointed a cause.

“Don’t know yet how it started, but the fire was mainly in one room and spread out into the hallway,” said Rose.

Corbin firefighters say they needed help with the building because the hydrants up on the hill here weren’t supplying enough water. Firefighters from West Knox, Woodbine, Keavy and Oak Grove also responded to the blaze.

Although no one was staying in the hotel, officials say it could have been a lot worse.

“It could have been a total loss, the fire department got here quick and was able to get it under control pretty fast,” said Rose.

According to a sign on the front of the building – the hotel was shut down by the franklin circuit court for not paying taxes.

Fraud Investigation Phone Scam Takes New Twist

Lexington Police alerted the public this week about a phone scam that has taken a new twist.

Authorities say the scam originally involved calls that would come from a foreign sounding man demanding cash for a kidnapped child, complete with a crying child in the background. These calls have taken a new twist with demands for money for a spouse rather than a child. The latest case involves a doctor at Bluegrass Orthopedics.  The caller claimed to have the doctor’s wife.  Police say the doctor wasn’t fooled and while on the phone with the man had a staff member call to verify his wife was safe.

Authorities say if you happen to receive one of these calls, get as much information as you can and then call police.

Private Detective: 6 Teens Accused of Sexually Assaulting a Girl in Denver

Six male teens have been accused of sexually assaulting a girl at a party in suburban Denver, police said Friday.

Five teens, ranging from 16 to 19, were arrested during the course of the investigation. Police said they expected to arrest the sixth suspect soon.

The investigation began Sunday night after the girl was reported missing in the city south of Denver. Police described her as a runaway and said officers ended up contacting her just as a missing person report was being filed with the police department.

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

According to police, the girl said she had been sexually assaulted while at a party earlier in the day attended by 10 to 12 people. The girl was taken to a hospital for medical treatment and for a sexual assault examination. Details of her injuries weren’t released and police spokesman Kevin Sage declined to comment beyond the statement.

Police said their investigation found that she had been sexually assaulted by six people at the party, where there was underage drinking and marijuana use.

A 19-year-old, two 16-year-olds and a 15-year-old were arrested Sunday night and early Monday. Police say their investigation led to the identification of two more suspects. The fifth suspect, a 15-year-old, was arrested Wednesday.

The girl and some of the suspects are students at Englewood High School, school spokeswoman Julie McGinley said. The others are students at other schools in the district.

In a statement, Englewood Schools said it is working to keep the victim safe in school and cooperating with police.

“We are also making sure that all students affected by these events are receiving the support and the counseling they need,” it said.

Private Detective: Clark Co. Teacher Accused of Abusing Her Own Child

A Clark County preschool teacher went to jail for what police say she did to her own daughter.

45-year-old Cheryl Lockhart is being charged with second degree child abuse. Winchester police were called late Wednesday night when a child never came home from school. When they found the girl, police say she was too afraid to go home.

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

Social services were called and discovered two significant bruises on the child, one of which the girl told police was caused when her mother pulled her down the stairs.

Lockhart is a teacher at Hannah McClure Elementary.

The superintendent of Clark County Schools says he is aware of the investigation and the school will be conducting their own investigation and will make a decision on her employment once the matter is resolved, but wants to assure parents that student safety is their number one priority.

Lockhart is scheduled to be arraigned Monday.

Missing Person 16 Year Old Virginia Girl Found in Arkansas

A 16-year-old girl from Virginia who was considered an endangered missing person after disappearing with an older man has been found safe in Little Rock.

Authorities in Christiansburg, Va., reported just before midnight Thursday that teen Aysia Monique Lewis had been found safe in Arkansas’ capital city and that the man she was believed to have left Virginia with, 33-year-old Donald “Bruce” Quesenberry Jr., was in custody.

According to a Little Rock Police Department report, authorities responded about 11:30 p.m. to an apartment complex in the 13000 block of West Markham Street after receiving information the two were there.

http://liarcatchers.com/missing_persons_investigations.html

“Someone in Virginia” contacted Lewis by phone, the report said, and she came out of an apartment where Quesenberry was later found inside.

Quesenberry — who police say acknowledged driving Lewis from Virginia — was arrested on a charge of theft by receiving because the car he was traveling in was reported stolen in Illinois, the report said.

Lewis was taken to a youth services facility in Cecil, where her parents were expected to meet her.

The Christiansburg Police Department said in a statement that Lewis was last seen Monday afternoon after school and it was believed Quesenberry traveled from his Illinois home to meet her. The pair were believed to be traveling in a gold Nissan Altima.

The police department said in the statement that neither Lewis’ nor Quesenberry’s friends or families had heard from either one of them in the days after she was reported missing. She was classified as “endangered” because of her “age and the circumstances surrounding her disappearance,” the agency said.

Authorities said Quesenberry was facing a charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor even before the teen was found and that additional charges are now pending.
