The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

The Jersey Pedophile

By now, I imagine that everyone has heard at least a little about the New Jersey pedophile who has been arrested after an intense search by Interpol.

Special agents from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested a suspected pedophile photographed sexually abusing young boys in Southeast Asia after Interpol issued a global request for help.

Wayne Nelson Corliss, 58, was detained in Union City, N.J., on Thursday — just two days after Interpol made a rare appeal for the public's assistance in the international manhunt to catch him, the police agency said.

Other than being a sick bastard dealing in child porn and raping children- it seems that Corliss had other hobbies too, like playing Santa at children's parties and breeding dogs.

I don't have a link for the following, as it was sent over by Mickey Rat (for those that don't know the name- he's the real sleuth on Joseph Duncan and while he's retired from blogging, he'll still be one of the webs most impressive crime bloggers ever), but it looks like Corliss was selling overpriced halfbreed mutts via advertisements. I've XXX'd out three needed digits in the phone number, but left his email available for those that wish to peek around on the net for traces of him.

Mickey also pointed out an interesting article on a young man who died of a drug overdose, and although there is no proof that there is any connection between his drug use- or any proof he was a victim of sexual abuse, a few comments in the story read like red flags.

The baby-faced Port Charlotte teen volunteered for rehabilitation to eliminate his desire for drugs. He had been clean for about four months, and was working on his high school diploma.

But one bad decision cost him everything.

The 17-year-old was found unconscious at a friend's house Saturday morning. He was pronounced dead at Peace River Regional Medical Center.

After being out of rehab (indication of an ongoing drug problem) for a very short time, the young man again fell back into drugs. We all know that while drug use is not a one hundred percent true indication of abuse, we do know that a symptom of abuse is drug use. And, adding to it that his grandfather was a pedophile who has acted on his urges and sexually abused various boys... well, perhaps someone should be looking a little closer at possible abuse within the family unit.
