According to the Chicago Tribune, John Mann, a member of parliament, has presented Scotland Yards with evidence against 22 high-profile figures, including three currently serving in the House of Commons and three members of the House of Lords. None of those six currently serving members are accused of murdering their victims. The evidence implicates 14 Conservative politicians, five Labor politicians and three from other political parties according to Mann, who says there were up to five separate pedophile rings operating at one point during the 1970s and 1980s, and that at least two whistle blowers had been murdered to silence them. The only prominent politician named to date is Liberal Cyril Smith, who died in 2010.
Allegations of an alleged Westminster pedophile ring operating near Parliament have gained currency recently when a number of high-profile TV and media personalities were either prosecuted or accused of molesting young boys, including Sir Jimmy Savile, which was made public shortly after his death in 2011, and Rolf Harris, who started serving a more than 5-year sentence he started serving this year in Australia at age 84 for molesting at least four juvenile girls over a 20-year period. British pop star Sir Cliff Richard denied allegations he had sexually molested a young boy at an event sponsored by the Rev. Billy Graham in 1985 after police searched one of his homes and questioned him. One of the alleged victims told authorities he was molested by prominent men when he was between the ages of 7 and 16 at a posh London apartment complex in Dolphin Square near Parliament. The victim identified as "Nick" says he witnessed a Conservative member of parliament strangle to death one of his young victims. Investigators say the victims account is "credible and true."
Closer to home, an Elkhart school teacher and high school wrestling coach has been arrested on 13 felony charges of child exploitation and voyeurism. James Iannerelli, 33, is accused of placing a hidden camera in the boys locker room and making recordings of boys in various states of undress. Iannerelli's teaching contract with Elkhart Community Schools has been terminated. A wedding announcement in the Elkhart Truth indicated Iannerelli planned to marry a fellow school teacher on July 6, 2013. It's those straight married men you have to keep your eye on.
