Florida Puppeteer Arrested in Federal Kidnapping Conspiracy and Child Porn Case

Ronald William Brown, 57, lived alone in the Whispering Pines mobile home park in Largo, a professional puppeteer. He often served pizza to kids in the neighborhood, then drove them to services at Gulf Coast Church, where he was an active congregant. However, Brown had a darker side, according to a 29-page criminal complaint filed July 20 in federal court in Tampa: the man who, as he was feeding pizza to teenagers, cherished fantasies of murdering and eating them. He also mused online about carving and cooking the body parts of a young parishioner for Easter. On Friday, Brown was arrested on charges of conspiring to kidnap a child and possession of child pornography and booked into the Pinellas County Jail without bail. U.S. Department of Homeland Security agents who searched his home found lewd images of children bound and gagged, a flyer for a missing child, and images of children that appear to be deceased. For more information go to the Miami Herald.
