FBI Missed Opportunity to Keep Dad Away from Children Before He Killed Self, His Sons

Steve Neavling

At least 17 months before he killed his children and his staff, Josh Powell was the subject of an FBI investigation in which agents found child porn, the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

At the time of the deaths, the FBI was actively investigating the disappearance of Powell’s wife and the discovery of child porn.

An attorney for parents of the wife, Susan Powell, expressed frustration that the investigation was not shared with the Washington Department of Social and Health Services, which could have stopped the dad’s visits with the children.

Instead, Josh Powell lit a fire at his rented home in Graham, Wash., in February 2012 and killed himself and his two sons. Powell’s wife has been missing since 2009.

The FBI declined to comment on the case.

Wisconsin DOJ Let 43 Child Porn Cases Languish While Predators Were Free

The Wisconsin Department of Justice let at least 43 tips about suspected child pornography languish for four months or longer, compromising the investigations and keeping children in harm’s way, an internal investigation determined.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the number could be a lot higher, revealing a major lapse in judgment by top officials in the state.

The probe resulted in the terminations of Willie Brantley, the former special agent in charge of the Justice Department’s Milwaukee office, and Anna King, a special agent who worked for him. All the cases were shifted from Madison to Milwaukee between 2011 and 2013, the Journal Sentinel reported.

“While there are examples during the three-year period of other (special agents in charge) holding cases between 60 and 89 days, these are outliers and no other (supervisor) ever held a case longer than that,” according to the letter, written by Deputy Attorney General Kevin St. John.

In one case, a 26-year-old man “was left free to allegedly molest an 11-year-old boy he was baby-sitting.”

“We still have concern that other cases under your former supervision, which have now been reassigned, may identify additional victims whose suffering might have been averted had you exercised the most rudimentary supervisory principles,” the letter notifying Brantley of his termination says. “This discipline takes into account the ongoing risk to the public safety that was set in play by your actions.”

A Border Patrol recruit taking a polygraph test for a job failed miserably.

So much so, according to CBS 8, a search warrant has been filed in San Diego County after he admitted to possessing child porn.

The 22-year-old man, whose identity was not released, told authorities he possessed 14 images of child porn on his computer. Some of the images were children as young as 5 or 6.

The man also said he tried to sexually assault children when he was 12 and 16 years old.

A Homeland Security supervisor who has been suspended pleaded guilty Monday to possession of child pornography in U.S. District Court in Buffalo, The Buffalo News reports.

Steven Metz, 41, faces up to 10 years in prison after he was busted with more than 600 images and videos of child porn on his computer. Metz also is accused of sharing them images.

“Some of the files contained sadistic or masochistic conduct or other depictions of violence, and some of the children shown in the images and videos were prepubescent and under the age of 12,” U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr. said.

Metz’s attorney said his client is extremely remorseful.

A 21-year-old man fell for an Internet virus that claimed he owed a fine for looking at child porn. 

When Jay Matthew Riley went to a local police department to pay his fine, he was arrested on multiple charges of child porn, accruing to the Prince William County Police Department, ABC 7 WJLA reports.

Riley told he police he was inquiring about any outstanding warrants related to child pornography after he received an “FBI Warning” on his computer that said he would be investigated if he didn’t pay a fine.

So Riley voluntarily handed over his computer, which authorities said contained inappropriate messages and photos of children.

“We’ve never had a case like this, I’m safe to say that,” says Prince William County Police spokesman Officer Jonathan Perok. “But the nature of what we have here is quite significant and severe.”

FBI Distributes Child Porn as Part of Unusual Sting to Identify Users in Washington State

The FBI has disseminated child porn as part of a controversial, unorthodox sting in western Washington state.

After seizing a child pornography service last year, Nebraska-based agents decided to continue operating the service to catch users, the Seattle Post Intelligencer reports.

According to the newspaper, the bureau kept the service open for about two weeks in hopes of nabbing more than 5,000 customers who distribute the images of child being raped and abused. 

It’s unclear whether the FBI has ever dealt child pornography as part of an investigation.

The investigation is in its infancy and has not yet resulted in an arrest, the Intelligencer reported.

“This remains an ongoing investigation, and local court rules and Department of Justice policy prohibit me from providing more information at this time,” said Sandy Breault, spokeswoman for the FBI Omaha Division. “As in any given matter, if charges are filed, they will eventually become a matter of public record.”

Ex-FBI Agent Reaches Plea Deal in Case Accusing Him of Possessing, Distributing Child Porn

A former FBI agent who worked on high-profile cases has reached a plea deal with prosecutors who accuse him of possessing and distributing child pornography, the Associated Press reports.

In the deal, 54-year-old Donald J. Sachtleben agreed to pay $20,000 in restitution to the victim.

A judge must still approve the plea bargain.

Sachtleben faces five to 20 years in prison when sentenced.

Sachtleben was involved in the investigations of the “Unabomber” Ted Kaczynski and the Oklahoma City bombings.
