The Perfect Storm of bizarre stories:
- 1) 29 year old sex offender pretends to be 12 year old student
- 2) No one in the school even noticed a 29 year old adult was posing as a kid
- 3) Two adult men thought they were having sex with a minor, turned out to be an adult
In what has to be one of the most bizarre stories, even as sex offender stories go … 29 year old Neil Rodreick poses as a 12 year old elementary school student. What is sad is that Neil Rodreick passed as 12 year old Casey Price for 50 days before anyone took notice. What is sick is that Neil Rodreick is a convicted sex offender. How could anything like this happened and have allowed to go on putting children at risk?

The public anger and outrage at this turn of events has lead many to ask how a 29-year-old grown man could pose as a student, much less as a pre teen boy and no one would notice or suspect. According to various news reports, Rodreick used a variety of techniques to disguise his age, including use of make up and shaving all his body hair.
61-year-old Lonnie Stiffler and 43 year old James Snow thought they were having sex with a 12 year old boy. Imagine their surprise? Lonnie Stiffler pretended to be Rodreick’s grandfather when he tried to enroll him at Mingus Springs Charter School as “Casey Price.”
Stiffler and Robert James Snow, 43, “were very upset when the detectives told them they had been having a sexual relationship with a 29-year-old man and not a pre-teen boy,” Quayle said.
It appears that Neil Rodreick may have also done the same scam in Oklahoma.
PRESCOTT A Yavapai County grand jury on Friday indicated four men, including the 29-year-old sex offender who allegedly posed as a 12-year-old boy on multiple felony charges.
Neil Rodreick, Brian Nellis, Robert Snow all convicted sex offenders and Lonnie Stiffler each face at least 14 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor related to child pornography.
They also face multiple counts of forgery, failure to register as a sex offender and taking the identity of another.
Sex offender’s history dates to 1996; Man was arrested in case involving 6-year-old boy
But his odyssey may actually date back to April 1996, when Neil Havens Rodreick II first was arrested for an incident in which he asked a 6-year-old boy to pull down his pants.
The bizarre case took yet another twist Friday when Gila County Sheriff John Armer confirmed that Rodreick, 29, had registered at Shelby Charter School near Payson on Aug. 4, 2005. He attended nine days of class over the next month, using the name Casey Havens Rodreick and a birth date that made him 13. (AZ Central)
