I learned today that a "brother" from my former congregation has been arrested.
The rumor mill was in overdrive (you know how the JWs are), my ex-wife and a PIMO member filed me in just an hour ago. Both gave 95% the exact details so i take it as legit...
When i used to do sound desk there was a brother in his late 40s/early 50s who for some reason always had a tan and always sat at the back of the hall. He was a loner, i used to feel sorry for him so would make small talk while i was setting up the sound desk and he was sitting there. (Im very tempted to mention his name but i wont, but this is in Liverpool, England).
From what i remember he was quite friendly with an old couple that had adopted their 13yo granddaughter and 8yo grandson. Always got a lift to the meetings with them, lift to the conventions etc. Well it turns out that he went into hospital last week for some tests, stayed there a few nights. He called Brother so-and-so (the grandfather) and asked if he'd go into his flat to feed and walk his dog. The brother is happy to. Next thing you know he's called the police after he found some "items" in his flat involving the13yo girl. Im not sure exactly what all of the items were yet, but both my sources tell me he found a letter, some adult photos that had had the girls head photoshopped on top.
The girl is in bits terribly ashamed and has told her grandparents that he buys her things and they share secrets.
I'll update the more i hear but this is the 2nd pedo in that congregation since i left just 2 years ago.
