Disturbing New Evidence May Reveal Exactly How Elderly Brothers With Child-Porn Infested Home Abused Young Kids

Police believe the evidence will help solve several missing children cases.

Three elderly brothers in Seattle were arrested earlier this month after a search of their residence revealed a "a home littered from floor to ceiling with child exploitation images, children's clothing articles, toys and movies.”

According to KOMO News, a prosecutor stated that Edwin, Thomas and Charles Emery shared the majority of their lives abusing children. They are aged 78, 79 and 82 respectively. One of the brothers worked as a janitor at the Seattle Children’s Hospital, Seattle PI reported.

A niece became of the power of attorney of Charles Emery after he developed dementia. While cleaning his 14-acre estate, she found children’s clothing, images of child sexual abuse and even written descriptions of children being murdered. She promptly called 911.

The niece also told police that her uncles molested her when she was a child, and her mother when she was a child.

Now, even more disturbing information about the elderly brothers has emerged. According to court documents, notes inside the home stated that penny loafers were placed on the feet of kidnapped girls before the men sexually assaulted and killed them. The brothers' niece also told police in 2013 Charles Emery would "dress her up in socks and shoes that were like the ones she found at the home" before sexually abusing her. Detectives said that they have found dozens of child-sized penny loafers inside the home.

Senior Deputy Prosecutor Cecelia Gregson wrote in charging papers that police were "executing search warrants and interviewing witnesses" to determine the extent of the crimes conducted by the three men.

"Each of the defendants has a sexual interest in minor children and have shared the majority of their lives sexually abusing children," she wrote.

The Daily Star reports that younger brothers Edwin and Thomas told police that they hadn’t gone into the garage for years. That space was for "Charles’ hobby.”

Police are now hard at work conducting their fourth search of the brothers’ property. They hope to find evidence which will solve several missing children cases. One such case is that of 10-year-old Lindsey Baum who vanished in 2009 not far from the area. Police found a missing persons flyer about the girl inside the suspects’ home.

“Based on the age of these three offenders, this didn’t just start with them last year or in the last 10 years. This has been going on for decades,” Retired FBI detective David Gomez told KTLA. “Serial sexual offenders tend to keep souvenirs, some kind of memento from their victim and their crimes that allow them to relive the crime over time later on.”
