Why did Harry Wayne Casey aka K.C. distance himself from Finch?
What better ploy than to blame the victims and hide behind the crucifix?
Why wouldn't a molester move to a town where many youth are poor and craving attention from anyone?
Yes this IS Appalachia and people are not worldly or assertive.
Mr. Finch will have another day in court. But any intelligent single adult, or person working with youth know it is not the smartest idea to have children to your home without another adult present. He could have given music lessons or volunteered with the boys at the YMCA or some other public venue.
You're assuming there were no adults there - I know for a fact from his people that parents WERE there for recording sessions - including the parents involved in this legal mess - and, his engineer's family owned this house where they had the studio AND he lived there with Finch, so there were TWO adults there ALL the time, even without parents. The engineer skipped town after Finch's arrest. Interesting how he has escaped this mess, don't you think? The plot thickens and when the whole story comes out from his people, I think there's going to be a lot of other people on the receiving end of some judicial butt kicking. It's sure easy for people who only hear one side of the story to just chat about things they know nothing about. As for KC he's got to make a living and wouldn't you do the same thing if people were saying that Finch was still part of the band when it wasn't true? Can't blame him for that, but he lied about Finch not co-founding the band and co-writing all the music and CNN caught him in that lie back in March. But the guy was desperate and employs people and they want to hang onto their bookings so again, who could blame him? But he just went a bit too far.

Yes, any intelligent person would know this, so what does this say about the adults who WERE present? Have to wonder what they were doing while so much was (allegedly) happening??? Isn't it funny how we heard plenty when it suited them, like the music videos, songs and all the other ventures, yet no one had anything else to say?

Like everyone else, can't wait to get the rest of the story, already heard bits and pieces so know this will shake their state!!

Well, I have to disagree with the people who really didn't know Rick as we did. Rick is a pervert, sorry to say. He is also the nice things you said about him. But we will never know if it was all used to groom the boys, or if he was partly a nice person. I know for a fact that these boys were not the only ones that Rick abused, & no they were not gay. Glad Rick has god in his life, cause he is going to need him.Maybe he would have had more money if he wasn't buying dope from Denison students.
Yeah well that just goes to show ya how wrong this all is, i DO know the man in question and anyone who would call him a perv knows nothing!You must be another one of those members in the witch hunt i keep hearing about, is that all you folk have? As i said i know the man and had the pleasure of meeting plenty who respected him. This is a real shame and it's not just his name being tarnished here but the real credibility of a star, so good on all the honest folk trying to clear his name

One true statement made here - yes, you are absolutely NO ONE SPECIAL - and if you are claiming he is a pervert, it usually takes one to know one. You are even less than someone special if you knew this man was having problems and you did nothing to help him or to get him help and if your solution was to just call the police and especially if you were using his producing services. Was your teenage son one of the people working with him? Get a grip Ms. or Mr.- these are not BOYS and if you had a clue about how teenage guys operate in the 21st Century and how they lie and manipulate or perhaps you are a parent lying and manipulating your kid to get something that you are incapable of making a living and getting yourself. Your comment here indicates that you are pretty clueless if you are referring to teens as boys. This whole case and the charges are so over the top stupid that it makes the rest of us in the REAL WORLD believe that this was probably a giant deflector of parents who are molesters themselves. Point the finger at the famous guy whose been beaten down by life - that will keep our secrets safe.

And you are saying there are OTHERS? Well, Sherlock, who are they and why didn't they too come forward? People like you who try to make the world believe they are so clued in are so tiresome to those of us with any real intelligence. Once again, you are NO ONE SPECIAL and your useless post has taken up valuable bandwidth.

Take the blinders off - your kid is going to grow up and leave you and get a life of their own and you will not be able to control him any longer. Saying the teens aren't Gay is a instant reaction of parents in denial about their offspring's sexuality. How would you even know? They aren't about to tell you because you are the parents and in that part of the country, you might as well wear a scarlet letter if you are Gay - parents reject Gay kids all the time, and you don't appear to be an open minded parent who would accept the life partner choices of your kids. Even the laws in Ohio are geared to hate Gays.

Did you not get what you wanted out of Finch if you were working with him? Maybe he told you your kid had zero talent and you are ticked off about that. Maybe you were jealous that he was working with others who had a better shot than YOUR TEEN. Maybe you even hit on the disco music legend and he wasn't interested. Revenge for what you don't get is a strong motivator.

This all smells big time and I hope that Finch's people are really digging into this and that the man won't have to suffer too long, wherever they send him and that an appeal quickly gets underway. If they are reading the internet and need some help, let me know. I'd love to help them expose this mess for what it is!
