“We decided to investigate the alleged child rape, but we soon discovered that Ohio officials hadn’t started a criminal investigation into rape,” Watters said. “This makes sense.” No. Has anyone reported this child rape to law enforcement agencies? “

“The story of sexual abusers freely assaulting a 10-year-old child would raise considerable concerns in a small town in Ohio, but no one seems to be doing anything about it,” he said.
