This was many years ago, maybe 10 or so, about a family that was very bizarre. It was a horrific abuse case and it ended up in Pasco County which shocked me cuz I was reading the book "Family Secrets" and wow, there they were. Was just wondering if there was anything written about this family in the news or anything, article I can find about it. I'd greatly appreciate it.

Yes, I've heard oft he Sextons, in fact, today in one of my classes, we ended up talking about it, one of the girls in my class has the book about them called "House of Secrets".

They grew up around here and one of my teachers had two of the girls in class. I'm not too familiar with it, but I was just looking into getting the book.

I haven't seen any news articles but I think you'd benefit from "House of Secrets".

I actually grew up in the same neighborhood as the Sextons. I had been to the house before, but i never went into it. I still live in the area and very close, 2 minute drive away. I was actually in the same grade as one of the girls. I remember the girl named Kim Sexton (which i am sure she is mentioned in the book), I remember in first grade she came to school with a black eye. I actually haven't read the book, but seeing that i grew up in the same neighborhood as this sick family makes me think that getting that book is a must. If anyone wants i could actually take a picture sometime of the house and pond that is in front of the house.

Matt - Where is the house located? I'm curious to see it.

The home is located on State Route 241 (Wales Rd) Massillon (Jackson Twp). It's actually on the NW corner of Carolina and Wales RD. The pond/yard is fenced. *This is still a private residence.

this took place in the 80s it was a sick family which was ran as a cult the mother also took part and knowing of these sick rapes and abuses . he had 6 children when people started to realize what was going on they contacted authorties which didnt help much none of the children would come forward. his brother otis sexton came forward and told p[olice about the cult like life he was leading and all of the horrible things that had went on. when he was caught and chargerd he fled to florida where he was caught 2 of his children pixie and william came foreward and told them that they had killed two family members her 9 month old son and her husband good. which there fathered had ordered . ed was charged with 4 counts of rape abuse and other charges pixie and william were charged with murder . There was an article in the akron beacon jornal called Silence, fear hide a tale of horror. it tells the whole story and all of the charges you can google it and it will pop up.

My husband and I are from a nearby town, and a year or so after this all happened, we were house-hunting in the Massillon area. We were looking at bank-owned homes, hoping to find a bargain, and we happened to notice a a very nice home, with a small lake in front. Noticing it was empty and a repossession, we walked around the property, fantasizing how nice it would be to have this nice house in a fantastic neighborhood, with our own little lake. One weird thing we noticed was that there was wire mesh covering the windows in the garage. As we were about to get into our car to leave, a neighbor lady approached us, and told us that the house was the Sexton house of horrors! Thank goodness, we didn't end up owning that house! Someone else did buy it, but it is now up for sale again. Recently Ed Sexton Jr.'s name has been surfacing in our local newspapers for bank heists and robberies. Poor guy never stood a chance being raised by those evil, demonic people.

For whomever may have read the book and know who Dawn and Shasta are.... My Aunt and Uncle adopted them down in Hudson Fl. They have been in my family for many years now, though my Uncle divorced his wife, I still have Shasta and Dawn on my Myspace and Facebook. I met them when they were really small, neither girl had been educated and just like the book reads, they did not know how to talk and were very behind on many things. I know that deep down their hearts hurt for their families past, but I am so honored to have been part of their lives and making sure they are protected from their Mother and Grandfather's abnormalities!!

The Sexton family home was less than 2 miles from where I grew up. The kids were older than me, and went to a different school. Read "House of Secrets" it's hard to find but is factual

I knew this family well. I dated the eldest son Patrick. He was the wife son by another man. I met all of the kids. Iwas in this house many times. I met the father. He was a very scary man and as this story tells had control over all of his children. I dated Pat for almost a yr. Willie Sexton use to come over to my house and hang out with my little sister. He was mentally handicapped or what people would call slow. he was such a sweet kind little boy when I knew him. we would always take him everywhere with us him and my sister. Eddie jr. use to date my friend andd we would double date all the time. what I found strange was the kids wore clothes from back in the sixties really dated things well at least the girls did. the girls were very quiet and stand offish. Me and Sherry talked some but not much. She always was so timid. the older boys seem to have control over the mother and the kids when the father was not at home it was odd. I stayed friends with Pat. I was so shocked when this all came out. and then not long after Pat died from a sudden illness. those poor children have had to go through so many horrible things that no one should ever have to go through let alone children I think about them from time to time. I do pray they have found peace.
