DEVELOPING: Utah Ritualistic Child Sex Abuse Investigation Intensifies


We live in a truly crazy world…

Investigators in Utah have reopened a ritualistic child abuse case dating back more than 30 years, with the first allegations surfacing in 1990.

According to sources, some of the allegations implicate Utah County Attorney David Leavitt and his wife as having taken part in the abuse…

Leavitt has admitted that he has a connection with the main suspect, an unnamed therapist; however, he also claims that it is an old family connection and that he isn’t intimately involved with the suspect in question.

I should stress that this in no way means they are guilty of the accused crime. Leavitt is up for reelection this year and he claims that these accusations are merely political attacks against him…

The Utah County Attorney has since called for the resignation of the Utah County Sheriff over what he claims is a politically motivated and frivolous investigation.

Despite this, police now claim that they are quite confident in the evidence gathered in the case.

Either way, the implications of this case are disgusting. If Leavitt is indeed guilty of the accused crimes then he’s a monster. If he isn’t then false allegations are being used to destroy an innocent man for political gain.

Here’s more on the story:

Fox 13 reports:

“When I was in law school, this therapist was my elder’s quorum president for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,” Leavitt said. “He was my neighbor. I had a family connection.”

Craig Barlow, a director with the Utah Attorney General’s Office, emphasized to Judge Griffin that the ongoing investigation is firmly progressing. For example, the investigation never stopped when Leavitt lost his bid for reelection.


Previously, Fox News released this statement from the Utah County Sheriff’s office:

“These allegations are being investigated by the Utah County Sheriff’s Office in cooperation with other local and federal agencies,” the Utah Sheriff’s Department continued.

“We are pleading with the public and encourage victims or individuals with knowledge of these crimes to contact the Utah County Sheriff’s Office Special Victim’s Unit so that they can be offered all the assistance possible.

We understand that there are individuals who have concerns for their safety and/or well-being who have been silenced. We need your help.”
