“I was relieved that they found somebody that could be charged,” said Richard Whitten, the victim’s father. “It’s been so long.”

According to investigators, Bell fatally shot Matthew Whitten during an attempted home invasion. Authorities said Matthew Whitten was not the intended target and it was a case of mistaken identity.

“He did a mean, hateful, evil thing to a boy that never harmed anybody,” said Joy Whitten, the victim’s mother.

Matthew Whitten’s parents expressed sympathy for Smith’s mother.

“I just wished I could’ve talked to that mother and told her how sorry I felt,” Joy Whitten said.

Authorities said a second suspect involved in the attempted home invasion and homicide has also been charged in the case.

Pedophile Tracking Felony Sex Charges in Kalispell, MT Sting

All of the men arrested in a sex sting in the Kalispell area have officially been charged and the Flathead County Attorney’s Office tells us they will get their day in court.

Felony sex abuse charges have been filed against the suspects, and we spoke with Deputy Flathead County Attorney Travis Ahner who tells us that this case will be prosecuted like any other – but it is clear that this one is a little different.

http://liarcatchers.com/pedophile_tracking.html

The biggest difference to Ahner is that the Felony Sex Abuse of a Minor charge carries with it some very lengthy mandatory sentencing if any of the men are found guilty.

“At present some of these individuals – the way they’re charged – have a 25 year mandatory minimum…prison sentence, that doesn’t allow for probation. For that first 25 years, with a maximum of 100 years.”

One of the men accused, Christopher Adams, had also been a youth volunteer at the Church of the Nazarene in Kalispell.

Charging documents were filed late Friday and early Monday for Adams, Justin Zeiss and Benjamin Emrich. Daniel Anthony Hall, Joshua Naethe and Karl Wortley were all officially charged by Friday.

Ahner tells us these men will get fair treatment, but there is strong evidence in this case.

“We deal with all sorts of significant crimes. This one it’s going to be a little more publicized, In part because, there are eventually -in some of these cases – we have hands on footage of them, sort of approaching a scene, doing something that a lot of times, don’t have.”

“In a lot of our criminal cases, So it’s going to be a little bit different in that regard. But otherwise, no, for us it’s just any other case, got to proceed through it go through all the steps,” Ahner said.

The first of the six men will be arraigned on Thursday as Karl Wortley will enter either a guilty or not guilty plea. All six of the men are being held in the Flathead County jail on a $100,000 bail.

Private Detective, Group of Construction Workers Help Police Track Down Man Accused of Rape

A group of construction workers is being credited with helping police track down a man accused of holding a woman at knife-point and raping her.

Police say it happened at the Knights Inn off Newtown Pike Monday morning. A group of workers apparently heard the woman scream and they jumped into action chasing after the man she says raped her.

Right by the hotel, the men were working on the sewage line and say around mid-morning someone dropped the victim off at her hotel room.

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

“10 or 10:30 something like that. The lady came in with some guy in a gray truck, went to her room. About an hour later she comes out saying she has been raped,” said Charlie Day.

It was that cry for help that grabbed the men’s attention. Without hesitation, not just one, but the entire group of workers took off chasing after 24-year-old Desmond Henson, the person the victim says raped her.

“He had done walked across the building and jumped in his car,” Day said. “We almost had him, but we got his license plate number.”

Thanks to that, police were able to track Henson down at his home. They arrested him and charged him with rape.

Pedophile Tracking South TX Woman Offered Child and Infant For Sex

A 42-year-old South Texas woman has been arrested and accused of offering a 12-year-old relative and an infant to the woman’s long-distance boyfriend to use the children for sex, court documents show.

FBI agents arrested Lydia Vasquez, 42, of Edcouch in Hidalgo County, on Friday. She appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Peter Ormby and was charged with one count of coercion and enticement of a minor, according to an official in the San Antonio FBI office.

http://liarcatchers.com/pedophile_tracking.html

A criminal complaint filed Friday in United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, states that Vasquez had been involved with her long-distance boyfriend, actually an FBI confidential informant from Detroit, and that the pair had been sending text and voice messaging involving explicit sexual conversations for about three to four years.

According to the complaint, around the first week of August, Vasquez sent a text to the informant, offering him a 12-year-old relative to “train sexually” for a visit that the man would make in January. The woman also promised to give the man a relative’s infant, set to be  born in January, so that she and the man could “train” the baby from birth so that it would enjoy sex.

The woman apparently went into detail with the informant on ways to train the infant, including pouring milk or honey on the man and allowing the infant to “lick it off,” according to the complaint.

The man’s visit to Texas was moved up, so when Vasquez went to McAllen Miller International Airport on Friday to meet her boyfriend, she was arrested by authorities, according to a report by Breitbart Texas.

A bail hearing for Vasquez is scheduled for 9 a.m. Aug. 28 in McAllen.
