Officials to widen probe into Ohio adoptive father
By ANN SANNERand DAN SEWELLAssociated Press
TROY — Federal and locallaw enforcement officials saidthey’re widening the investi-gation into child sexual exploi-tation allegations against anadoptive father charged withraping three boys in his care.Officials said the fatherhired one of the boys, a10-year-old, out for sex, pros-tituting him. The father andtwo other men remained in jail Thursday on rape charges.The father’s name is beingwithheld by The AssociatedPress to protect the children’sidentities.The boy shook whenasked about being prostitut-ed to two men, according topolice. They said the childwas fearful of talking becausehe didn’t want to be takenfrom his home or separatedfrom his new siblings.Troy police said theyimpounded the father’s truckand seized four laptops fromthe home and a video cameraand two wooden paddles fromthe master bedroom. The fatherworked out of his home as aninsurance claims adjuster.School officials said theman had recently withdrawnthe three adopted childrenfrom school, saying he wouldhome school them. A neigh-bor said he had no idea any-thing lurid might be going onin the home.“You don’t know whatgoes on inside people’shomes,” said neighbor EdRogers, who had lived acrossthe street from the man thepast five years in a neighbor-hood lined with single-storyranch homes, typical in thisworking class city of 25,000people about 20 miles north of Dayton. “I’ll never look at thathouse the same way again. I’ll just look at it with sickness.”The man at the center of the investigation is a longtimeTroy resident who had beeninvolved in a local youth bas-ketball program. Police Capt.Chris Anderson said police sofar haven’t found any signsof any inappropriate behaviorwith other children, even ascalls poured in from worriedparents.
