Taken from Brown’s website, Brown allegedly used his puppeteer business to gain access to children in attempt to abduct, torture and abuse children.
A 57-year-old Largo, Florida man has been arrested after authorities tracked him down as part of a large child abduction and exploitation sting. Ronald William Brown has owned a puppeteer business in the Tampa area community since 1992. He reportedly used the business to gain access to young children and even had his name and company listed in his local school district’s directory as a volunteer speaker, offering to come to school to put on a puppet show and tell children how the business operates.
After federal agents found that Brown had communicated online with a convicted felon who was sentenced to 18 months on child pornography charges, federal agents got a warrant for Brown’s home. There agents found Brown in possession of child pornography as well as a CD hidden in his sock drawer with images of exploited children forcibly engaging in bondage, sex acts and what appeared to be deceased children.
Authorities also found online discussions in which Brown spoke of his fantasy to abduct, murder and cook a young boy. He spoke specifically about a boy he recently met, and how he wanted to lock the boy in his closet, torture him and then cannibalize him.
Neighbors in Brown’s mobile home park told Tampa Bay Online they reported Brown to authorities on several occasions. They say he constantly had boys over at his home, with as many as 10 kids at a time going in and out of his trailer. Brown had also had several run-ins with the police but always had an excuse for his suspicious behavior. He claimed the van he used to transport children around was a van he used to take children to church. He also said that a pair of boys underwear found in his van were used as clothing items for his puppets.
Brown is currently being held on federal charges of child pornography possession and kidnapping conspiracy. He is set for a bond hearing sometime today.
