Who ever judged the above post of keepers ?
How dare you. How dare you.........
#5478 Jan 31, 2011
Cody, you and I have seen a lot more documentation than any of the "judgers." Who cares what they think. They are operating with very limited information.
#5481 Jan 31, 2011
Ya, they're about to be blown apart.
#5482 Jan 31, 2011
I think I'll put my foot up my own a** a bit ??
I find it so funny, that another forum is making up posts right now, or re-posting crap from 2005 ?
Pretending that real posters are still posting ?
Funny. Bringing up old names, hoping to get a rise out of a few people.:)
Well, that rise can't happen.
Keeper is sooooo right :)
So right that I must smile and laugh at the other site......The great downfall.....!
But, I won't laugh too hard, because knowing things, knowing the "who's" and maybe the ways....does not bring the little ones back.:(
#5483 Jan 31, 2011
That was knowing the "whys"......not ways.
Although, I guess the word does fit ?
Stock up soon to be snowed in friends !!
We're getting ready for big one here !!
12 - 16 inches ???

This is from Wiki on searching N Fox Island.
In the mid-1970s a child pornography ring was discovered operating on North Fox Island. The proprietor of the island used his position in a large social program to fly boys in his private plane to his island retreat. The Ann Arbor News published a story in their weekend magazine on the proprietor's life, then published a second story when the crimes were uncovered.
Does anyone have copies of these stories? If so wil you bring them here?
#5485 Feb 1, 2011
I'll look. Glad to see you here :)
Maybe Lilly has them ?
#5487 Feb 1, 2011
Curious ?? Those three are dead ?? Because we know they're not ?
My big question ??? Why did Busch get probation, Greene get life, Bennett walked away and kept raping......and now Bennett's name has been taken out of some articles and replaced with the name of an older teen victim ?
#5488 Feb 1, 2011
He seems to be curiously alive and well in sunny Alabama. With all of the men with means to fly back and forth to Fox Island it is strange that Bennett is one of few identifiable and living pedophiles (along with Gerald Richards) from that era. Where is his name replaced with a victim's? Which article? Is it possibly a mistake or does it seem intentional?
#5489 Feb 1, 2011
It was done on purpose. I don't want to post his name.
It's not fair ? He was a victim ? We've talked a little, not much.
No, it was done on purpose.
Read the book yet ? You're one of the smart people around here :)
No need for details.......good read for you ?
I wouldn't mind facebooking with you......just about the case....I'm married.:)

I found an article or two about the Fox Island pedophile/child porn ring on Ancestry.com . They weren't that easy to access, and both came from the Traverse City Record-Eagle. Marilyn Wright was the investigative reporter who wrote a series of in-depth articles about the ring. I don't think there was nearly as much coverage downstate, even though the ring had a national and international scope. Certainly nothing as in-depth as Wright's reporting. Imagine how many men with $ from the Detroit area made trips to the "nature camp" on N. Fox Island. No, that story was not going to be big in the Detroit area. More ...

From the 4-6-77 R-E article:
"State police are investigating charges that young boys between the ages of seven and 16 were drawn to North Fox Island with promises of an 'unspoiled paradise,' only to be lured or coerced into committing homosexual acts. The activity was then photographed by adult directors, according to reports made to the state police, for use in hard-core pornographic magazines."
"On the surface, the principals involved appeared to be the right kind of poeple to run a children's camp."
#5493 Feb 3, 2011
As young as seven ??:(
Well, I hope they enjoy Hell !
#5494 Feb 3, 2011
Undated R-E article, "Child molesters defy image."
"As the enlarged picture of the child pornography racket is brought into focus, the image of the 'typical' child molester fades into the background. In place of the 'dirty old man in a trenchcoat,' can be seen an intelligent well-educated male, cloaked in respectability. He could also be an astute businessman who uses tax dollars to support his perversion and line his pockets."
R-E article, 5-20-77, "Ex-director of state camp arraigned on porn charge."
"A former director of a children's summer camp in Michigan will be arraigned in Lake County, Ill. today on obscenity charges in connection with an alleged nationwide child pornography ring."
"Elden Gale Wake, 40, publisher of the explicit 'boylover' newsletter, Hermes, surrendered himself to the Lake County State's Attorney's office Wednesday after learning he had been named in a criminal information bill."
"Hermes, which is reported to sell some 5,000 copies bi-monthly, contains LINE DRAWINGS and photographs of nude boys, articles on boylove and coded advertisements that enable subscribers to contact one another and to engage children in pornographic modeling and prostitution." [Emphasis mine.]

R-E, 12-13-77: "Authorities seek porno pair; Shelden, Grossman remain missing after a full year."
R-E, 12-14-77: "Shelden left a trail of shock" --
"Police records indicate Shelden cleaned out his Ann Arbor and North Fox Island residences shortly after Gerald S. Richards, an associate Shelden's in Brother Paul's Childrens Mission, was arrested on criminal sexual conduct charges. That was in July, 1976, approximately one week before state police obtained a search warrant for the Ann Arbor premises. A warrant was issued for his arrest on Dec. 7 . A second warrant was issued a week later."
#5496 Feb 3, 2011
R-E, 12-15-77, "Grossman search widens; Leads fizzle out."
R-E, 12-16-77, "Starchild a man of mystery." [Starchild was involved in the ring. From New Jersey, he represented Shelden in transferring his "considerable stock holdings" from a New York brokerage house to a West Indies trust company. He was "presently acting as an agent handling these funds."]
R-E, 8-23-78, "Porno figure running out of places to hide."
R-E, 8-5-96, "Figure in North Fox child-sex ring dies; Francis D. Shelden was charged but never extradited after fleeing the county." [So much for running out of places to "hide."]
#5497 Feb 3, 2011
Yes, the "nature camp" was for boys ages 7-16.
#5498 Feb 3, 2011
So tell me why no one pressed Gerald S. Richards for the Fox Island client list? When this horror story was happening/being discovered at the same time as the OCCK horror story!
#5499 Feb 3, 2011
They most likely did get the list, the films, the pictures and names of many of the little victims. Remember that N. Fox wasn't servicing your average run of the mill middle class pervert. These were people running in the same circles as the very wealthy powerful and untouchable owner of the "resort" location. It is very likely the cops in the trenches never saw it or even ran in that direction while chasing the killer. There were powerful people making sure of it.
#5500 Feb 3, 2011
The fact that Richards is still alive, makes me wonder just what documented insurance policy he has hidden to make sure he stays that way? Imagine what that must look like.
