ARE THESE MEN LINKED TO THE MISSING LINDSEY BAUM CASE?
Charles Emery, 82, Thomas Emery, 80, and Edwin Emery, 79, from Green Lake, Washington in Gray’s Harbor County are charged with possessing child pornography, after police acting on a tip searched the home. Now, authorities are worried there may be more to this case than the three brothers collecting child pornography, after children’s worn clothing, underwear, small shoes, toys were found inside the home that was called filthy by the investigators.
Authorities told KIRO news they believe each of the men spent the majority of their lives sexually abusing children, but did not offer any information that led them to this conclusion, other they had been convicted of abusing children within their family decades ago.
“It’s very clear that these three individuals have an obsession with young female children, they’ve had this obsession for most if not all of their lives, and they acted on it,” said Capt. Mike Edwards, who leads SPD’s Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force.
The authorities have taken over the property as they tow away an old car the brother’s had. They also an unearthed what they are calling a manifesto about Satanic rituals, kidnapping, raping and killing girls. Upon this discovery, authorities began digging under sheds, garages and other areas. During one of those digs partially burned papers were found that Charles had written, along with a burned child’s hat.
“Their writings express desires to kill children,” said Capt. Mike Edwards, who leads SPD’s Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force.
Another search is being planned on Saturday on the more than 15 acres of land.
The authorities also plan to see if they can locate the children whose photos and videos were found on an old computer.
