Shave, Haircut and Child Porn … The Barber of St. Francis, Vernon C. Seitz, PART I

 

Vernon C. Seitz, 62, was found deceased in his home on December 15, 2008 by Milwaukee, WI police following a wellness check request by a friend. While it appeared Mr. Seitz died of natural causes, what police also found in his home was anything but natural.

Male Child Porn Slides, Photos, Videos, Paintings and Children’s Shoes

Milwaukee Police executed a Search warrant the following day, and seized over 500 pieces of evidence, including male child porn, bondage equipment, a book titled “Eat Thy Neighbor: A History of Cannibalism and children’s shoes. According to a search warrant obtained by TODAY’S TMJ4, “during an emergency sweep of Seitz’s residence officers noticed newly poured cement in Seitz’s basement” and “elevated dirt piles in the yard and bondage devices in the basement, hanging from the floor rafters.”

Also found, of unknown origin, were tufts of what appears to be human hair.  Before anyone speculates it would be natural for a barber to have tufts of hair lying around his shop,  Verns’ Barber Shop is located 10 miles away.  At Seitz’s Packard Ave Barber shop he owned for 20 years, Police found a laminated poster of missing Minnesota Child Jacob Wetterling.  Jacob Wetterling, abducted in October 1989 by a masked gunman  while riding his bike to rent a movie with his brother and a friend, has never been found. Apparently that is not due to the fact that Mr. Seitz did not make the effort:

The boy’s mother, Patty Wetterling, told the St. Paul Pioneer Press that Seitz came to visit her twice soon after the abduction. He claimed to be a psychic wanting to help and had even given her a painting of Jacob.

“He seemed to care, and he shared that he had his own personal reason to care,” she said, noting that Seitz had had an abusive incident happen to him in the past, which she declined to speak of further. There were a number of not yet disclosed missing children Michael_dunaheeposters among Mr. Seitz belongings. However, it appears Mr. Seitz’s concerns for missing young boys extends beyond the domestic.  Creepy Barber Guy had a missing person’s poster of Michael Dunhee.

Michael Dunhee, aged 4 ½, disappeared from a park near his home in Victoria, BC in 1991 and has never been found.    Michael’s Mother, Crystal Dunahee,  told CBC News on Wednesday that she’s not sure whether Seitz ever contacted her family after Michael disappeared, but that the name Vernon Seitz does seem “familiar” to her.

Dust off the Rorschach, shrink needs a shrink

Seitz confessed to his psychiatrist of 11 years, Dr.  Victoria Fetter: “He told me that although he liked little boys, he knew that you can’t touch little boys, so what he did was paint them nude,” Fetter said. “He didn’t tell me about kiddie porn or anything that he would get in boiling hot water if he did anything, then he can paint the pictures. That won’t hurt anybody.”

He also told her that he had used what he regarded as his psychic abilities to help the families of missing children across the Midwest but that he never mentioned Jacob Wetterling.

The story of the potential confessions of Vernon Seitz gets more bizarre when you talk with Seitz’s psychiatrist. She told TMJ4′s Charles Benson that the 62-year-old Seitz was on a mission of mercy.

She said Seitz wanted to put his mind at ease about killing a 14-year-boy in Racine back in the late 1950′s when Seitz was only 12-years-old. Fetter wouldn’t comment on whether Seitz ever confessed other crimes to her, citing doctor-patient confidentiality. She said she could only talk about the 1950s incident. Fetter said she was appalled when she found out what police found in Seitz’s house.

Is “boiling in hot water a psychiatric term for spending the rest of your life in the slammer where he becomes the little boy in the scenario? Sources inside the investigation indicate there are discrepancies in Dr. Fetter’s comments to MPD leading up to the passing of Seitz.

If that is true, it will not be the first time Dr. Fetter’s patient management skills have come under scrutiny. In 2000, Fetter was professionally reprimanded by the Wisconsin Medical Board for misconduct of confidentiality and unprofessionalism towards a patient and her family during 1996-1997. This would be right around the time Seitz began seeing her. I did not provide the reference to this information to protect the privacy of the patient involved in the sanction. It can be researched through her medical license, however.

      What did they find under the freshly poured cement ???
      I voted for Coke on the advertisement !!! Any idea when I will receive my $50,000

      Cases not connected? Seitz would not have acted out on his sick fantasies … are you joking???

      He had missing children’s posters in his possessions. Don’t pedo’s take souvenirs of their conquests as a reminder?

      This sicko is probably responsible for God knows how many MP cases and sexual assaults.

      Thanks to the psychiatrist not thinking this guy was dangerous to those in his surroundings.

      Where there is smoke there is fire..

      I feel this man needs to be looked into in relation to past abductions, child porn cases, etc. You don’t have this amount of child porn, missing/abducted posters, and bondage equipment unless you are involved and using them.

      What continues to cause me great concern, is that apparently this psychiatrist is unaware that child porn is illegal. She is “shocked and appalled” at what was found, but still does not address the implications of that. Yeesh.

      Criminals love to revisit the scene of their crimes. Vernon C. Seitz, got off visiting the mothers of missing children. Or maybe he just felt guilty? I read a book years ago about the patterns of serial killers. It shocked me how most had so much in common. I had known two people that had some of the same background traits of a serial killer. Our they killers? Probably not. But I have never trusted them. Males also seem to out number female serial killers. Or maybe the females are smarter. :-)

    6. Blink34 on January 11th, 2009 7:05 pm

      Greg- not touching the who is smarter question :)

      But your right, by far, males outnumber females in the child molestation and serial killer cases.

      I am really freaked out that his 20 year Business, was never registered as a Barber Shop in WI.. I am guesing there is random and unannounced inspections in that industry..

      What kind of vehicle did this guy drive?

      Lastly- A pic or memorial or obit has not been released, although his family feels he was a kind man with no issues.. Uh huh.

      There’s a reason why there is so much violence, physical, emotional and sexual; perpetrated against children. But we have no control over it. All we can do is beware of the fact that there are real bogeymen out there that are preying on our children, ever day and in every way. Vernon Seitz took a lot of secrets with him when he died, but there will be justice for all the innocent ones that he abducted, tortured and killed. Jehovah, himself, has done an accounting and there is nothing done, even in secret, that He doesn’t see.

    8. Susan on January 11th, 2009 9:04 pm

      Hope, are you a Jehovah’s Witness? Just curious :-) You mention “Jehovah” in your comment above, #7.

      Satan

      Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that Satan is the invisible ruler of the world. He was at one time a perfect son of God but developed feelings of self-importance and craved worship that belonged to God. Satan persuaded Adam and Eve to obey him rather than God, raising the issue of who can rightfully claim to be sovereign of the universe. Satan misleads people on Earth, and he and the demons are the reason for pain and suffering. In October 1914, Satan and his demons were cast down to earth from heaven and the end times began.

      Mr Seitz could’ve been Satan himself, along with so many other sick sons of b*tchs!!

      Sure Sietz’s played out his sick fantasies :-( There’s no other explanation as to why police discovered bondage equipment and child porn at his residence.

      There’s no telling what is under the freshly poured cement in Seitz’s basement or how many victims fell prey to this monster!!

    9. Blink34 on January 11th, 2009 9:08 pm

      I stand corrected on the obit…

      Note that there is no mention of his Father, who is living, or his Mom’s name who was deceased.

      Susan:

      And…. Before the flood, there were demons that materialized into men and married women which produced very violent giants. Demons were no longer allowed to materialize and the ones that had violated the women of the earth were caged. In 1914, those demons were released and cast down to the earth along with the rest.

      They, especially, target Christian children.

      I was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness, but am currently studying to be a dedicated servant.

    11. HOPE on January 11th, 2009 9:57 pm

      Susan:

      Their children, the Nephilim, were destroyed
      in the flood… and they’ve had all this time
      to think about it. Like the Bible say’s,
      Satan is like a roaring lion, looking for
      someone to devour. :(

    12. buster on January 11th, 2009 10:14 pm

      I wonder what Nancy Disgrace will say about him on Monday ???

    13. Blink34 on January 11th, 2009 10:23 pm

      Respectfully, to all beliefs, I think the focus needs to be on the individual, and any potential crimes. I don’t think familes of missing children that may be related to this case, care who serves what master, I think they just want answers and to bring their babies home.

      Again, submitted respectfully.

    14. HOPE on January 11th, 2009 11:05 pm

      Absolutely, Blink34, but Susan is a friend.
      Besides, who really cares? Everyone knows who my God is and if they ask, I’ll tell them…

      Jehovah!

      And to think, I used to say the rocks would cry out… and the sea would burp up its’ babies? Carcases under the broken bridge where the children play.

      Aruba, The Sea of the Dead.

      Chao for Now.

      Those were the days~

      It feels good to say it…

      Boycott Aruba!

      This guys BAD news.

      I’m a Christian and I know that the god of the Jehovah’s Witnesses is Lucifer.

    17. Blink34 on January 12th, 2009 8:36 am

      This just came to me. If this guy dies sitting in a chair from hypertensive heart issue-
      How is it possible he dug up his backyard? Wouldn’t one assume that with such a serious heart condition digging up his backyard would pretty much kill him during the act?

      Who was seen over there? What kind of vehicle did he have? Did somone dig up the backyard after they knew he was dead?

    18. Rusty Bridges on January 12th, 2009 10:06 am

      #17, Heart failure could occur at anytime, maybe brought on by the exertion of digging. Sometimes people having heart attacks are merely temporarily functioning due to adreneline boosts.

    19. Richard on January 12th, 2009 10:06 am

      Given the volume of suggestive evidence, it seems strange to me that the police came out so quickly and said there is no reason to think that this guy is involved in anything criminal.

      Of course, a cover-up is what we all think of first thing, these days. But doesn’t it seem odd?

      At the very least, he seems to have had some lurid interests. That’s not proof of anything, of course.

    20. Richard on January 12th, 2009 10:08 am

      There is widespread speculation that the cases of Jacob Wetterling and Johnny Gosch are intertwined.

    21. HOPE on January 12th, 2009 1:48 pm

      Bob #16:

      I suppose, as a Christian, you know how many
      times the name Lucifer appears in the Bible?

      Sorry, Charlie!

    22. HOPE on January 12th, 2009 2:09 pm

      I was going to say that I knew this little boy who was in foster care with a very good friend of mine. He was the worst case of child abuse ever documented in the state of Washington Children’s Services Division. He was, deathly, afraid of movie theaters. His father used to take him to the bathroom and sell him to men at XXX rated theaters. To think about him and his life story, is saddening. He came to be mentally handicapped, for obvious reasons, and became an offender himself. No amount of therapy could cure him.

      I don’t know what became of his father. But his adoptive parents had to relinquish him back to the state for they couldn’t afford to keep him in a home until the time he became an adult.

      I believe this man was displaying those kind of movies in his ‘barber shop’ and marketing little boys.

      Hopefully, Law Enforcement held back the
      news to see who his customers were…
