Father Beats Child Molester Raymond Frolamder Unconscious After Catching Him in the Act of Sexually Assaulting his Son in Volusia County, FL
The feel good story of the day and hero of the week goes to the 35 year old unidentified Florida father.
18 year old child molester, Raymond Frolander, was left beaten, battered and unconscious in a pool of his own blood after a Florida father caught the perv in the act of sexually assaulting his son. The unnamed father called 9-1-1 Frolander has since been charged with sexual battery on a victim under 12 and is being held without bail, county jail records show. Daytona Beach police chief Mike Chitwood said the father was not charged with a crime. Not been charged? The dad should get a medal. CNN affiliate CFN 13 asked Daytona Beach Police Chief Michael Chitwood whether he had any issue with the father’s reaction Friday. Chitwood responded, “Not as a police chief and not as a father.” Frolander is being held without bail.
“I just walked in on a grown man molesting—,” the 35-year-old unidentified father told a 911 dispatcher. “And I got him in a bloody puddle for you officer.”
Asked by the dispatcher if he had used any weapons, the father responded, “My foot and my fist.”
“I didn’t proceed to ask him any questions sir,” he said. “He is nice and knocked out on the floor for you. I drug him out to the living room.”
“He stood up and his pants were around his ankles and nothing else needed to be said,” the father added to the dispatcher. “I did whatever I got a right to do except I didn’t kill him.”
The father then advised the dispatcher to deploy paramedics. “Send an ambulance. He is going to need one.”

According to Frolander’s arrest affidavit, police say when they questioned him he admitted sexually battering the child and said, “I’m guilty.”
Frolander was charged with sexual battery by an 18-year-old on a victim under 12 and is being held without bail, Volusia County Branch Jail records show.
The child told investigators that he was playing video games with friends but after the friends left, Frolander asked the boy to sit in his lap and then took him to a back room, the report states.
Frolander then pulled the boy’s pants down and started sexually battering him, the boy told police, adding that Frolander had been abusing him since he was 8 years old, investigators said.
Now that is some street “JUSTICE” … Parental style. How would have the nerve to say that this
perp perv did not get exactly what he had coming?

File this one under, ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!
Okay America, who are you going to believe,
Baghdad Bob Harry Reid or your lying eyes? Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said Tuesday that the southern border was secure. Seriously, as a humanitarian crisis occurs on the US-Mexican borders as illegals pour over the borders, Reid says “the border is secure”. What about this illegal child crisis that Democrats are looking to capitalize on, is that the sign of a secure border? How about those 50,000 unaccompanied youths and children who have illegally crossed the Texas border during the last few months? We have a porous southern border that is not just a humanitarian crisis, but a national security one and this lying Democrat leader says, don’t look here, there is nothing to worry about. UNREAL.
However, Reid says he is against the bi-partisan proposed Cornyn-Cuellar bill that would allow unaccompanied minors to make a claim for asylum in the United States before an immigration judge within seven days of receiving a screening from the Department of Health and Human Services.
Of course Reid is against any bill that would remedy the crisis, its all about politics.
VIDEO – Roll Call
The Hill - Reid: Southern border is secure.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Tuesday asserted the southern border is secure despite the massive surge of illegal minors from Central America that has overwhelmed federal agencies.
“The border is secure,” he told reporters after the Senate Democrats’ weekly policy lunch. “[Sen.] Martin Heinrich [(D-N.M.)] talked to the caucus today. He’s a border state senator. He said he can say without any equivocation the border is secure.”
Reid said lawmakers need to worry less about border security and focus instead on President Obama’s $3.7 billion request to help process the tens of thousands of children from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador who have been apprehended on the border.
Senator Dingy Harry is sounding an awful lot like Baghdad Bob did during the days of the War in Iraq when the US military was near the gates of Baghdad. Can anyone tell the difference between the two?

Deputies say Pedro Alberto Monterroso-Navas, 43, faces a second-degree murder charge in the death of Heidi Monroy, 24, who the sheriff’s office originally identified as his wife.
Deputies began looking for Monterroso-Navas after authorities responding to a medical call at 3:35 a.m. Sunday found a woman unconscious in a bathtub. Two of the couple’s children, a 5-year-old and an 8-year-old, had gone to a neighbor’s house to seek help, saying something was wrong with their mother.

Those two children were identified as Victor Manuel Monterroso-Monroy, 8, and Marlin Jouahny Monterroso-Monroy, 5.
Paul Ross, who also lives in the apartment complex, said the family moved in about two months ago. He said he never witnessed any fighting between the couple.

All three of his children were with him at the time of his arrest, and are reportedly fine and are now in the custody of Texas authorities.
Just Disgusting … Pope Francis Says 1 in 50 Roman Catholic Priests Are Pedophiles … Abuse of Children was Like “Leprosy” Infecting the Church
WHEN WILL THE CATHOLIC CHURCH PURGE ITSELF OF THIS SCOURGE?
Pope Francis was quoted in an Italian newspaper, La Repubblica, that 1 in 50 or 2% of Roman Catholic priests are pedophiles. The Pope said that the abuse of children was like “leprosy” infecting the Church. However, the Vatican was quick to backtrack on the comments and say that the Pope was misquoted. What, did the Pontiff quote a higher number? At some point the Vatican is going to have to come clean and rid itself of this terrible blight. If they think its an “infection” then they best find a cure pretty damn soon.
Pope Francis on Sunday was quoted by an Italian newspaper saying that about two percent — or 1 in 50 — of Roman Catholic priests are pedophiles, but the Vatican quickly released a statement saying the pontiff had been misquoted. Church officials also said that the journalist who did the story for La Repubblica had a history of having long conversations with public figures without taking notes or taping them, and then reconstructing them from memory.
“Many of my collaborators who fight with me (against pedophilia) reassure me with reliable statistics that say that the level of pedophilia in the Church is at about two percent,” Francis was quoted as saying.
The Pope reportedly told Italian newspaper la Repubblica that abuse of children was like “leprosy” infecting the Church.
Francis said the “corruption of a child is the terrible and unclean thing imaginable” and vowed to “confront it with the seriousness it demands”.
He said that paedophilia was unfortunately common and widespread.
“The church is fighting for the eradication of the habit and for education that rehabilitates. But this leprosy is also present in our house,” he was reported to have said.
“Many of my colleagues who are working against it tell me that paedophilia inside the church is at the level of two per cent. Among the two per cent who are paedophiles are priests and even bishops and cardinals.”
17 Year Old Angelic Tracy ‘Anji’ Dean Missing Since 6/23/14 in Camas, WA … May Be A Victim of Human Trafficking: “If You’re Reading This, I’m Either Missing or Dead.” (Update: Found Safe)
17 year old Angelic Tracy ‘Anji’ Dean has been missing since June 23, 2014 in Camas, Washington. The missing teen left an entry in her journal that read, “If you’re reading this, I’m either missing or dead.” The police fear that ‘Anji’ Dean may be a victim of human trafficking after mysteriously vanishing from her Camas home. Prior to her disappearance, “She had been telling some people for a while that she was involved in something, that she was in over her head, that she was scared.” Anji is described as 5-feet, 6-inches tall, weighing 135-145-pounds, with blue eyes and brown hair. Anji was last seen wearing exercise clothes, black tights that stop at midcalf, white Nike tennis shoes with light green soles, and a white, razor-back tank top. She may also have a white backpack.
A 17-year-old Washington girl missing for the last two weeks left a chilling message in her journal no mother should have to find.
“If you’re reading this, I’m either missing or dead,” the entry penned by Angelic Tracy ‘Anji’ Dean read.
Authorities fear she’s become a victim of human trafficking after mysteriously vanishing from her Camas home June 23.
The blue-eyed brunette left behind her cellphone, ID, bank cards and the eyeglasses she needs to see, according to the National Women’s Coalition Against Violence and Exploitation (NWCAVE), which is assisting in her search.
Jorgensen said in recent months Anji had been dealing with what her family thought might be some episodes of “teenage angst” and “normal teenage girl depression.”
“Now we are kind of finding out that there was a different, underlying reason,” she said. “She had been telling some people for a while that she was involved in something, that she was in over her head, that she was scared. But they couldn’t get any more information than that out of her.”
Anji’s journal hints at some of those fears and troubles. In addition, she sent her boyfriend some ominous text messages the day she went missing, saying she was in danger, and that people had threatened to kill him and her family. Her boyfriend is cooperating with law enforcement.
“She has never been out on her own for more than a day,” Jorgensen said. “We assumed she was with her boyfriend, or something like that. We had the police talk to him as well. The moment we found out she wasn’t with him, that’s when we really started freaking out because we had no idea where she was.”
She left behind several items of importance including her prescription eyeglasses, bank cards, makeup and clothes, as well as some medications.
“What we see traditionally is if you’re running away from home because you don’t like the rules or you’re running away from something, that’s not against the law, but those types of individuals will take something with them,” Bart said. “If you’re being lured away, you are told to leave things behind so that nobody can track you. That’s the difference.”
Investigators with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office are interested in speaking to an African-American male, approximately 25 to 35 years of age, with a goatee, who drives a light blue older model, square body Volvo. He was seen by a neighbor dropping Anji off in front of her home on June 23 at 4:30 p.m.

UPDATE II: Missing Camas teen Found Safe.
Missing Camas teen Angelic “Anji” Dean was found safe by police Wednesday afternoon at the Clackamas Town Center in Oregon. The 17-year-old had been missing since she left her home near Southeast 192nd Avenue on June 23.
Investigators said they received about 150 phone tips about the girl’s whereabouts, and numerous tips through social media. The Clark County Sheriff’s Office’s Major Crimes Unit was able to locate Dean at the mall in Clackamas County, interview her and reunite her with her family, according to a news release from the agency.
“This is an active investigation that includes the crime of human trafficking,” Sgt. Kevin Allais said in the new release.
Dean’s mother, Lynda Jorgensen, spoke with reporters Wednesday at the family’s home in Camas shortly after getting the call from Detective Scott Kirgiss that her daughter had been found.
“We’re very, very thankful that she’s OK,” Jorgensen said.
12 Year Old Talaija Dorsey Missing Since 7/1/14 in St. James Parish, LA (Update: Mother’s Fiance John D. Celestine Arrested on Obstruction of Justice)(Update: Body of Missing Talaija Dorsey Found Deceased)
12 year old Talaija Dorsey has been missing since Tuesday morning, July 1, 2014 in St. James Parish, Louisiana. She was last seen at her home on Pelican Street in St. James. Talaija Dorsey was discovered missing about 7 a.m. when a friend came to pick her up for summer camp. When Talaija’s mother went to get her, she found that her daughter was not in her bedroom.
A 12-year-old girl went missing early Tuesday morning and the the St. James Parish Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in finding her.
Talaija Dorsey, who’s described as five-foot and three inches, was last seen at her home on Pelican Street in St. James. Dorsey has brown eyes and black hair.
If anyone has information on her whereabouts, you’re asked to call the St. James Parish Sheriff’s Office at 225-562-2200.
On Friday deputies extended their search all the way to Jefferson Parish.
On Saturday Sheriff Martin said deputies continued to search the fields around Dorsey’s residence and along the highways. Sheriff Martin says deputies in surrounding parishes continued their searches as well.
Deputies have been focusing their efforts on less-traveled, rural routes along Highway 3127 in St. Charles Parish. It’s the route Talaija’s soon-to-be stepdad, John Celestine, 42, drives to work everyday.
Deputies are concentrating more and more on Celestine, but have yet to identify his as the suspect. He is being held on obstruction charges in this case. Deputies also say he has a prior, out-of-state arrest for child cruelty against a family member, though he was not charged ultimately in that case.
Authorities have made an arrest in the disappearance of a 12-year-old, booking the fiancé of the girl’s mother on obstruction of justice, St. James officials announced late Wednesday.
Deputies booked John D. Celestine, 43, who lived in the Pecan Street home with the family, on felony obstruction of justice and a false communication count, said Maj. Sid Berthelot, a Sheriff’s Office spokesman.
Celestine was being held in the parish jail in Convent awaiting setting of bail. Because of the potential of additional charges against Celestine, investigators are not releasing further information, the Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.
Officials have announced that the body of a missing 12-year-old girl has been found.
The announcement was made during a Sunday afternoon news conference.
Sheriff Willy J. Martin, Jr., said that 12-year-old Talaija Dorsey’s body was found around 10:20 a.m. Sunday at the edge of a cane field in a wooded area. During the news conference Sheriff Willy said that he took Dorsey’s disappearance personally. He also said that he discovered the body himself.
The sheriff did confirm that Talaija’s mother’s fiancé, John Celestine, 43, who had been named a person of interest in the case and was charged with obstruction of justice, has been upgraded to a suspect. He is being held at the St. James Parish Sheriff’s Office Jail in Convent, and reportedly has not been cooperating with investigators. Louisiana State Police are working forensics at the scene and hope to uncover evidence within the next couple of days to move the case forward.
Martin said he found the body around 10:20 a.m. Sunday. State Police Lt. Todd Toloudis said Martin was searching for the body alone this morning when he found it.
Nancy Peosi (D-CA) Says After Tour of Humanitarian Crisis on US-Mexico Southern Border …”We are all Americans” … “Not a Crisis But an Opportunity”
UM, who was it that caused this humanitarian crisis on the US-Mexican border by not enforcing US immigration policy?
House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) held a press conference after her tour of the humanitarian crisis of thousands unaccompanied minors flooding across the U.S.-Mexico border and called it a “humanitarian opportunity”. HUH? Of course that was after she commented that “We are all Americans”. Which sadly is the real reason why San Fran Nan cares at all about this situation on the border … turning a crisis into an opportunity and making thousands of “unaccompanied children” US citizens and government dependent Democrat voters.
We have to ask ourselves, why did this happen under the Obama administration at this time? What else would folks think from South American countries when you do not enforce United States immigration policy?
Let’s make this an opportunity to crate future government dependent Democrat voters
Pelosi explained, “We are all Americans — north and south in this hemisphere,” and urged America to see this as not a crisis but an opportunity “to be helpful.” She also said she wished she could simply “take home” the thousands of children temporarily housed in the overburden facilities.
According to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency, in the past fiscal year more than 47,000 unaccompanied children have crossed the border into the United States through Mexico with the majority coming from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.

Put your money where your mouth is Nancy. Powerline points out that we could put many of these young people that you claim to care so much out in and on the many homes and property you own. Take them home with you, if you really mean it.
Pelosi said repeatedly that she wants to take all the kids she has seen in Texas home. Actually, she could: not all, but quite a few of them. The Obama administration certainly wouldn’t stop her from breaking the law. And Pelosi’s various mansions could house quite a few Central Americans. Her husband Paul, the brains of the family, is a very rich man, which frees Nancy to fool around with politics. This is the Pelosi mansion in San Francisco.
Nancy could house 20 or 30 Central Americans there. But that’s nothing. The Pelosi vineyard in Napa Valley could be home to several hundred. Look at the low population density!

16 year old Ashley Lyon has been missing since Wednesday, June 11, 2014 in Valrico, Florida. Lyon was last seen around 4 p.m. on Wednesday at her home on the 4000 block of Water Lark Way in Valrico. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement issued a statewide missing child alert on Saturday afternoon for Ashley Lyon who police believe is in the company of 41 year old registered sex offender, Steven Patrick Myers. Ashley Lyon has been diagnosed as bipolar and is without her medication. Authorities say that they two may be traveling in a 1989, dark-colored, Ford Ranger truck with flames painted on the front and sides with Florida tags CSJM45.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement issued a statewide missing child alert on Saturday afternoon for Ashley Lyon, who has not been seen or heard from since leaving her Valrico home. Lyon has been diagnosed as bipolar and did not take her medications with her.
Deputies said Lyon may be in the company of 41-year-old Steven Patrick Myers, who the sex offender registry indicates moved to Plant City after two convictions on sex charges in Georgia.
Lyon was wearing a black tank top, black gym shorts and black shoes. She has brown eyes and black hair. She weighs 175 pounds and is 5 feet, 6 inches tall.
Myers has brown hair and blue eyes. He weighs 156 pounds and is 5 feet, 11 inches tall.
They might be traveling in a 1989, dark-colored, Ford Ranger truck with flames painted on the front and sides. The tag number is CSJM45.
Ashley’s parents said they recently found out she had been spending time with Myers, who lives in Plant City, but has relatives in their neighborhood.
The Lyons grounded Ashley but she disappeared while her mother Michelle had jury duty and father Roger was at work.
“I returned home from work at approximately 4:30 that afternoon. I heard music on in her room. My assumption was that she was in the room. When my son and I finished barbequing dinner, I said go get your sister, it’s time to eat and at that point he said she’s not in her room,” said Roger Lyon.
The family said she hasn’t been heard from since and her phone is off.
“Quite honestly, we’re not angry at this point,” he said. “We’re terrified. We just want our baby daughter to come home.”
UPDATE II: $5,000 reward offered in missing teen case.
Hillsborough County, Florida – A father is making an emotional plea on this holiday weekend. His 16-year-old daughter has been missing since Wednesday and he is asking for the public’s help in finding her.
A $5,000 reward is being offered for any information that leads to finding Ashley Lyon.
Ashley’s family spent the evening passing out flyers at businesses near their home in Valrico. They also passed fliers out near a gas station in Plant City, where 41-year-old Steven Myers, a two-time sex offender, lives. Ashley’s family believes she is with Meyers.
The parents of a missing Valrico teenager spent Father’s Day distributing fliers to businesses and neighborhoods all over Hillsborough County.
Ashley’s parents say the community and thousands on social media have been helping in the search and they won’t rest until their daughter’s home safe.
“There are so many, I mean, I’ve had my daughter’s teacher call and anything she can do she wants to help. And so many online shares, like the missingcase.com that was posted last night – they already had close to 5,000 shares,” said Michelle Lyon, Ashley’s mother.
“Today isn’t Father’s Day. Today’s Ashley’s day and it will be Father’s Day when I get her back home,” said Roger Lyon, her father.
Anyone with any information regarding the whereabouts of Ashley Lyon is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at 813-247-8200, Crimestoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS or the FDLE Missing Endangered Persons Information Clearinghouse at 888-FL-MISSING.
A truck stop cashier spotted a sex offender and a Florida teen who’d been missing for a week, setting off a 40-mile chase across Louisiana swampland that ended when the man’s truck burst into flames, officials said Thursday.
The Florida man — Steven Myers, 41, of Plant City — and the 16-year-old girl both had stab wounds and were in serious but stable condition, police said. Investigators believe but have not confirmed that Myers stabbed the girl and then himself, said Cpl. Paul Mouton, spokesman for the Lafayette City Police Department.
The missing Tampa Bay area teen found in Louisiana early Thursday was stabbed 10 or 12 times after the registered sex offender she was traveling with “realized he wasn’t getting away” during a high-speed pursuit, a sheriff’s official said.
Ashley Lyon, 16, Valrico was upgraded to serious but stable condition at a Lafayette, La., hospital, police said.
The man she was with, Steven Myers, was also hospitalized after the 40-mile pursuit with law enforcement. He was in serious but stable condition with apparent self-inflicted stab wounds and K-9 bites after confronting officers with a knife, police said.
