The menace of cannibalism is still on, at least to fantasies and this time these man-eating characteristics have been triggered without bath salts. Florida puppeteer Ronald Brown has been arrested after he was accused of possessing child porn and is said to have plotted to kidnap, cook and eat children.
Police reveals that the 57-year-old of Largo, was arrested after federal agents found that he had allegedly been chatting online with child pornography suspects about extremely disgusting discussions regarding kidnapping, sexually abusing, murdering and finally eating children. Brown, whose Puppets Plus website promises ‘grins and giggles’ for children was reportedly caught in online chat rooms with people the feds were investigating to have been a part of child pornography ring in Massachusetts.
During the discussion he allegedly fantasized about strangling, dismembering and eating his victims. The police claimed that during one chat session he wanted to tie a child up, lock him in a closet and eat him for Easter supper. In another he said that his mouth watered when he looked at a female toddler.
Brown appeared in federal court on Tuesday and had his bond hearing postponed. According to his lawyer, Eric Kuske his client is innocent and would never do something so gruesome. However, Brown’s neighbor, Stacy Gaughan thinks otherwise. She was not surprised by the allegations, since the puppeteer was known to spend most of his time with children by taking them to church with him and hosting pizza night for groups of children.
Also, this isn’t the first time he has been eyed as suspicious. In 1998, he was investigated after police found several pairs of boys’ underwear in the front seat of his car. He was also arrested on charges of conspiring to kidnap a child and possession of child pornography.
A real incident of man eating earlier came into limelight when a 21-year-old engineer killed a man and then ate his heart and portions of brain. Bottom line, you don’t need to consume bath salts to actually go crazy!
