Police find child porn, dirt tunnel in Glendale home

Police said they uncovered a large stash of child pornography and a mysterious tunnel leading to an underground room at a Glendale man's home.

Peoria officers said they made the discovery at the home of William Willis, 45, earlier this week. Police were at the home near 43rd and Northern avenues to serve a search warrant in a Peoria burglary case in which Willis and Cory Houghton, 21, were arrested on Tuesday.


Officers investigated the yard of the home and found an opening to a staircase that led 12 feet underground, said Mike Tellef, a spokesman for Peoria police. The tunnel eventually opened up into a room about 8- to 10-feet in diameter....."

That's so scary. I wonder how LE determined that the room hadn't been used for anything illegal or legal?

It seems to me they closed that up much too quickly. How do they that no sexual assaults have taken place there or that there aren't any bodies buried there? Just because they only SAW dirt, doesn't mean there weren't other things or people there previously.

That was my immediate reaction as well! If this guy was in to child porn. the dirt could contain evidence of sexual assault. All he'd need is an extention cord or batteries for lights and he'd have a practically un-identifiable setting for child porn videos...nothing visible but dirt! As long as he removed the equipment and sewpt the place out, it would appear to be unused!

I hope there is more to the investigation than has been reported!

If a perv who is into child porn goes to the trouble of having a secret underground room, you can bet your bippy it is being used for something heinous. period. He didnt create that setting so he could have somewhere to go and stare at his child porn and stare at teh dirt walls and THINK about harming a child. He created that space so he could follow through on those compulsions.

Maybe there is more to it than has been told, but it seems like a very poor investigative decision to me.

ETA: Like I wonder if he has connections and someone is covering it up for him. Certainly wouldn't be the first time.

My jaw dropped when watching the news video, they interviewed a neighbor woman, "TA", "who lives two doors down", and then showed a close-up of the neighbor womans beautiful, red-headed, "three year old daughter".

How frighteningly irresponsible!

Why not just build a tall neon sign in Ashley's front yard that says:

"Come and Get Her, Pedophiles!
Pretty little 3 yr. old girl lives here!"


Incredible.

Concerning the covering up of the room, I too, am outraged. According to the article to which I linked, LE only discovered the room earlier this week. That is not nearly enough time to complete a thorough forensics overview!! Who gave the order for this "cover-up"?

From my link above:

"A single officer entered the tunnel briefly to make sure no one was inside, Tellef said. The officer found only dirt.

After searching the room, Glendale authorities filled in the tunnel to remove any hazard to the community.

That has to be the most insipid and inane comment I've ever read!! We put all our trust in a single officer's quick overview? I believe the community has the responsibility to call for a full investigation of this debacle.

I can't link to this as this person might be uninvolved but Lord help me!! If you check out Willis on Intelius and whitepages, you'll find a name of a relative. You might want to run a MS check on that person (looks like the true name is a nickname) in the same general area.

"It's the hunger that drives us" YIKES

Looks like William comes from quite a large family. Another possible family member has been "placed in a center" where she can't contact anyone.

It looks like William shared a condo with two male family members, one older and one a few years younger. The younger person is the one who has the creepy MS page. There's a comment that the older person passed in 2008 but I'm not finding an obit yet.

Ok, sorry to double post, but I just went back and watched the video and I'm even MORE outraged!!

The first neighbor was talking about how she has seen children (teens and younger) going in the house before!! WHY did they fill up that tunnel??? Stupid, stupid, stupid!

I also learned that Willis lived there with his wife. Is the other guy arrested with him for the break-in his son??

You so know I am going to look all that up.

BTW, does anyone remember was it a barber or a Doctor that had this kind of set up waaaaay back? Child pornography, and secret basement rooms? Oh it was a barber and he'd keep the kids hair clippings.:eek:

This kind of stuff you can't make up. It's like an episode of CSI. I agree if there's a secret room I mean? I pray they didn't get to use it. Better yet too bad it didn't cave in on their perverted tails.

07-16-2010, 07:24 PM
Lovejac--Wondering about the wife comment. Are you making that assumption on a name that ends with an "ie"? If so, that's a brother, I believe. If you've seen something about a wife, though, can you link to it or give me a hint. I'm very intrigued by just who might have known about this room.

From what I can tell, two adult brothers lived at this residence with an elderly family member who most likely died in 2008. Still checkin on that. I'd like some understanding as to why teens and children were going into that house.

Does anyone know who would have made the call to cover this tunnel and room up? Would it the the Police Chief? That's a man who took the job about 7 months ago, Steven Conrad.

07-16-2010, 07:31 PM
I pray they didn't get to use it too, Filly, but how can we be sure if a single officer pokes his head in and say, "Nope, nothing to see here guys"? Is LE interviewing all the children seen entering the house? Have they all be accounted for?

I'd completely spaced looking up the man he was arrested with, Cory Houghton. You can check out his two MS pages--they are not hard to find. And guess what? He's a father. He has some friends with "unique" interests. He also seems to have been less than attentive to his family lately. Be aware that there's been some hair bleaching which can be misleading. It's him.

That's just darned great that Mr. Willis was allowed to go home. I'll bet the neighbors are thrilled too. I can't imagine that being at that house could be safe for him. Just like Phil Garrido, he can move about and under his property with impunity. Why is this whole thing seeming off?

I'm unclear as to whether the Willis house is in the town of Glendale or Peoria. They are adjacent inner city towns within the greater Phoenix area.

Filly
07-16-2010, 08:51 PM
O.K. they're related by marriage these two. Took me awhile to find that.

He's got two seperate MS pages, I see Izzy. The 21 year old. I'm not going to link to it because he has a wife. However, it's public and this kid publically tells his wife some time ago he is admitting to the world he is addicted to porn.

Say what?

He is out as well. Let's the whole free world know he's spending time with the family beause he probably won't be out long.

Say what?

Oy vey. Nobody is saying "Holy c*ap my relative has a stash of porn in an underground room?" Nope. At least according to the wife's Myspace they live by themselves so it is possible they had no idea about that, but he's burglarizing drug stores?

Unbelievable. Real life. Now what? What was down in that secret room?

Izzy I am sorry I just repeated what you already said. The family and such. I got lulled myself wading through that.

Missizzy
07-16-2010, 09:12 PM
I still want to know who the children are who went into that house. The article said that the child porn found was of underage females. I'm surprised that no local comments have been made.

Did you notice the comment by the wife of the younger guy about getting CPS out of their life? The words she uses, hmmm, in my experience are not the choicest to use for social workers--who access MS all the time. Silly woman.

I'm actually hoping CPS is watching out for the little guy who can't help that he was born to a father who's a thief and a porn addict.

Sheeeesh we all know these guys obey the rules.

Here we goooooo. Neighbors are diming him out. He's hiding a car. Parked it in another spot behind a market. LE say they have no reason to search the car. Neighbors want to know "What's in that trunk?"

Also they found wigs and sex toys.

Sorry to reply so late. We took the boys to the park to play.

While watching that video on the first link, they reported that he lived there with his wife. I think ? it was stated after the neighbor talked about seeing teens and little ones going in and out of the house.

Is this story something or what!!?

07-16-2010, 10:42 PM
If I lived in that complex, I would be literally freaking out tonight. How can they let someone so obviously sick and twisted go back to his home, knowing how many children are within feet of his front door? A protest needs to be mounted and vigil set up across the street IMO.

If the car has been left for an inordinate amount of time at the Fry's lot, can't it be towed? And if it's towed, can't the trunk be checked, for "hazardous materials"? One would think.

I guess I'm most concerned by the number of children seen going into that house and some of the MS friends' interests. And the meds--were they stealing meds? Why?

The neighbors knew something was wrong but "couldn't put their finger on it"? I guess they can now.

Playing devil's advocate for a second....how could this situation be safe for Willis himself? The whole community is riled up. The parents are looking for blood. And they send the guy home on house arrest? That's a perfect set up for a liability suit against the city IMO.

They've modified the video and article available at the first link and I can find nothing about a wife in print. This is the second time in two days that an original article has been seriously modified and that really ticks me off. I'm going to have to keep better notes. I'll keep looking.

Cory Houghton did post a notice on his MS page, however. I can't link to it as there is a child on it but it's the one where he identifies himself as a parent.

I now see what Filly referred to. The two men, Houghton and Willis, are related by marriage.

Missizzy
07-17-2010, 02:06 AM
I finally found it, Lovejac. They did say that Willis lives there with his wife. However, I can find no adult female listed at that address. It seems that Cory and his family might live there. Not sure about that.

I also just spent as oh-so-refreshing hour reading back over Cory's comments and I have to say that a certain older woman has a far less than healthy relationship with that young man. I don't know what her deal is, but what I saw was not appropriate for a person of authority to send to a 16-17 year old boy. JMO and I do try to stay open-minded.

Salem
07-17-2010, 02:14 AM
MissIzzy - were the comments sent to Cory when he was 16-17 or is there a teen involved somehow?

Thanks,

07-17-2010, 03:57 AM
The comments and graphics were sent to him in 2006 through the present. Being that he's 21, he would have been 16-17 at the time they were sent. I don't think any of them are illegal. They are just sexually graphic and inappropriate, given who sent them. It was also done, to my mind, quite obsessively. JMO

I'm sorry to say that I have a doubting mind. I think that certain events and developments in this young man's life, set him up for failure. He's an adult and will have to deal with the consequences of his actions.

By the way, he's threatening to sue anyone who accuses him of possessing child porn.

Izzy it is public so I think it is O.K. to say that Houghton is Willis's SIL.

Dysfunction Junction. Unfortunately there's young people involved.

I don't know, but I feel for the wife/DD. Your dad is a freak and your husband somehow is involved and you now have to deal with this?

Possibly it was in the wording but Houghton's DW says she lives with him and child. Then again maybe she just hoped to blot out her own father.

Wait. These are apaprtments? Townhomes? Do they own it? Or are they just digging holes in a rental property?

Heck yeah somebody needs to go search that car. Something off about the guy using power tools at night? Always in concrete? Hey, I have new neighbors that do that and I don't know them, but trust me I got my eyes peeled. Seriously they are young folks and friends are helping rehab the house, but still I'm on that and let them know "Yep, I'm always up. We sleep in shifts. I have a large firearm and my mom aims to kill anyone comes through her door, window or skylight". Amen.

Filly--The jury's out on the wife of the younger accused. CPS has been involved in the past and I hope they are keeping an eye out now. I have gut feelings but won't share them. There's a lot of anger, that's for sure. I can't imagine that it would be prudent to have a young child present in that home right now.

Yes, the address seems to come back for different units. These are attached condos so they might live in two different units. The confusion with Peoria/Glendale police is that the two towns kind of overlap.

Belinda
07-17-2010, 12:09 PM
Why would they not have probable cause to search a vehicle that has been left in a public area for a long period of time? Especially considering the odd situation. So, they didn't search the car and they filled in the underground room. Yeah, sheer brilliance.

No, the confussion besides why the cops won't search that car is the older woman with the suggestive comments.

This is spanning two whole families it appears. Please don't tell me that is the woman that birthed him. Either way I'd say a young man was manipulated for certain but if she borthed him then it's all too bizarre. Yes, he'd have been 17 making her late 40's. Not good.

What the heck is going on here? Best if the wife "All he did was a robbery no child porn so shut up MFers" or something like that. What? He burglarizes drug stores and that's all?

The older woman with the same name and freaky comments it's odd that the two toddlers she shows in photographs do not have the name of this little guy belonging to the younger accused. What is up with these people?

Missizzy
07-17-2010, 12:51 PM
I don't know about birthing but I do know that this person is known as Mommy. That qualifies as sick to me JMO. The graphics are not only sexual but gruesome. Why would a parent send things like that almost daily to a son? I also found it odd that the two little guys don't include the child of the arrested. And they all live close by. And the mother of the third little guy is a "friend". Does anyone know why a graphic/greeting card is removed from MS? Does the sender remove it or does MS remove it? Lots of these graphics have been removed.

I cannot find a wife for WW at the residence. The name which ends in "ie" is a male with his own worrisome MS. The only female relative which I see listed as a relative of WW is much older. And note that on the "ie" person's MS, who the hero is. Got to be connected.

Missizzy
07-17-2010, 12:59 PM
Something just hit me (no not that, Filly!!). You know why I can't find a wife, possibly? Maybe, there isn't one. Maybe neighbors saw Willis entering and leaving the house cross-dressed!! They found wigs and clothing. I see it as totally possible for the neighbors to be confused about who exactly was living there. It doesn't sound like he had friendly relations with his neighbors but some did watch the house. I wish LE would interview the neighbors about a physical description of this supposed wife.

Possible?

I need some help. If you go to whitepages and search for WK.W of Glendale, AZ, you will note there are two people listed at the same address. One is an older male with the same last name and one is a slightly younger male with the same last name.

Do a MS search on the younger male and note who his hero is and when that hero passed. Can anyone find an obituary? I'm concerned that this person might no longer be living but might be buried in some place recently quickly covered over.

Good thinking on the cross dressing and good thinking on Belinda's part about where the heck is he going if the property is condemned?

Izzy, I looked that person up on MS twice. He lives in Mesa? If it's the right one he has it set to private.

The hero would be?

Ya know as well if he was cross dressing that would be tough. He's a rather mustacheoed person. Then again I know there's well whatever or however.

I'll check again.


Izzy I use Peoplefinders.com as well. That gives you more people that a person is related to besides sharing and addy with. I checked that "ie" out again. If I'm looking right it's private. Can't find an obituary on the elderly relative.

Willis has lived in Califronia and Kansas as well.

More sloppy/lazy Police work! they have charged him with c.p. and burglary, searched his entire home, but claim to have no interest in the contents of a vehicle that he is obviously trying to hide? because of the items already seized in his condo it is certain that they could have easily secured a warrant for this vehicle, but that would have involved more paperwork and time spent actually working, and the news crews had already left. In my opinion this guy managed to make a joke out of the Police with all of their crime scene tape and bulldozers. He knew the cops were probably going to search his home and probably had most of the evidence stashed in that car before they arrived, what they seized in the home is probably just the items he overlooked.

Missizzy
07-18-2010, 11:05 PM
Welcome KaptainKebo!! Glad you are here. I noticed on Cory's wife's MS page that there was a comment about a car left at the Fry's parking lot. I don't know what that is all about. Maybe there's limited parking at their complex. But most shopping centers aren't real accepting of vehicles being left for long periods of time. Could one of the family members possibly work in that shopping center?

I cannot understand the unwillingness of LE to check out that vehicle. The men burglarized a drug store. I'd think that LE would want to see if any drugs were in the car to preserve community safety. Wouldn't want a whole trunk full of pain killers sitting in the parking lot. Surely, some neighbors have given it a thorough checking over by now.

Belinda
07-19-2010, 02:35 AM
The neighbor stated that the car was always parked in front of the home. And then suddenly some time ago, he started parking it in the Fry's parking lot. The police are absolute dolts for not searching it. Now, of course, he has had plenty of time to empty the contents.

ETA: I really think he has some kind of connection to LE and someone is covering for him. That is the only way to make sense of the complete ineptitude of LE in this case.

Missizzy

I wanted to make the observation that the older female relative known as Mommy has been sending similar graphic notes to the Cory's wife for just as long as she has Cory. If I'm not mistaken they precede the marriage. Just plain odd. There does seem to be some sort of overlay between two families. It strikes me that the wife's friends don't seem too pleased with the choice of Cory as a husband. He's not very nice about the friends either. There also seems to be some connection with Kansas.

KaptainKebo

Well, these people obviously have some chemical addictions to be out committing burglaries, and no mention of drugs or related items were siezed, so it doesn't take Sherlock Holmes (like the reference misslizzy?) to figure out that the meth pipes and exotic glass bong collection and anything else incriminating were stashed in that vehicle before the search. I'll bet he thought that he would turn over the stolen merch that he had already confessed too and that would be the end of it until court, but just in case they came to search he put everything else (he thought) in the trunk of that car, there could have been homemade child porn in that vehicle. Considering how eager AZ LE is to search any car during a routine traffic stop in hopes of finding a roach and destroying somebody's life, it amazes me that when confronted with real serious crime that involves real serious investigation they turn there heads. Again, no mention of drugs although their neighborhood is saturated with meth. meth can trigger pedophiles, meth will cause you to burglarize, meth causes people to take on wierd 'projects' (like the backyard lair) and meth will make sure you are still awake at 4:30 in the morning to engage in these activities. One more thing, Somebodies Mom needs to put down the meth pipe also..... I saw the creepy Myspace comments........ wow. Also, regarding the latest comment on Cory's page, does anyone know who Keith is? where is the 'car at frys' comment?

KK--I totally agree on most counts. However, I'm holding out hope that LE is doing something behind the scenes which we're not aware of. There's got to be a major ruckus going on in that neighborhood. I will be disappointed is the neighbors don't rise up in anger and show up at City Hall demanding information. Children were seen entering that home. Even if they were the children or younger siblings of the arrested, neighbors are going to want confirmation that their children weren't in that house.

I noticed in the video, that there is a pool behind the complex. I wonder if Willis or Cory hung out there. We know that's a common ploy of pedophiles. And yes, I realize that we have no evidence that he physically touched a child but he victimized them, none the less, by having child porn.

ITA with everything you say about meth. Well aware of each issue. However, I saw nothing in the MS pages I read which mentioned it or gave any clue. CPS's involvement had to do with another illegal substance. That struck me as odd as that wouldn't trigger an investigation in Oregon unless something else was going on.

I still haven't figured out why so many of the graphic "cards" on Cory and his wife's pages had disappeared. The date and sender are still there but there's a note saying the image has been removed. They seem to have been removed by MS but I'm not sure. As more and more people leave MS for FB, I've noticed MS getting smarmier and they must have been really questionable to remove.

Did anyone notice that even though "Mommy" sends notes and cards almost daily, no one seems to mention her or correspond in any way? Very strange.

07-19-2010, 01:28 PM
I just noticed that Cory's wife states on her MS page that "retractions have been printed in the paper". Can anyone locate these retractions? I can't seem to.

I want to make it clear that I have been going on the reports that Cory is charged with burglary and that William Willis is charged with burglary and a number of sex crimes. Is this not correct? Cory has made a very public admission that he is addicted to porn but he's never admitted to addiction or involvement in child porn.

Wanted to make that clear.

I'd still like to know why this father and son-in-law (presumably, that's the connection) had children coming into that home and WTH was the need for an underground room?

I do feel a little bad for Cory's wife, with a father who views children as sex objects one can only imagine what her childhood was like. And as far as public outcry?..... won't happen, and behind the scenes investigative work? ...... not happening. The Police in Phoenix are far more concerned with whether Pedro at the car wash has his paperwork in order as opposed to engaging in real investigative Police work. Sorry, but there will be no more news concerning this one, as far as the Police are concerned it's done, I see it in Phoenix all of the time............ next?

I wanted to make the observation that the older female relative known as Mommy has been sending similar graphic notes to the Cory's wife for just as long as she has Cory. If I'm not mistaken they precede the marriage. Just plain odd. There does seem to be some sort of overlay between two families. It strikes me that the wife's friends don't seem too pleased with the choice of Cory as a husband. He's not very nice about the friends either. There also seems to be some connection with Kansas.

Izzy, a search on Peoplefinders shows that the older dude came from Kansas. His DD the wife of Cory was born there so I am thinking they originally hail from there.

Although "mommy" can be a term of endearment I think that would be "mommi"? Don't know my Spanish too well. Either way that's wild. It looks like it is his mother. It looks like his father raised him and the two siblings had other father's? I noted that the female sibling has no back and forth communication with him. It also looks to me like he was not reciprocating at least publicly good ol' mommy's attentions.

Dysfunction junction what's the function? I think KaptianKebo got that all right. Wait. You better retract that.

KK--Just a quick heads up. Edit your post to use just initials for the "uninvolved". Use "JH" instead of the full name. You don't want to get banned!! The older man's name is William Keith Willis. I'm assuming that is Keith. I think Cory MUST have lived in the home as someone says that they called the number and "some Indian dude picked up". Willis is listed as Native American on his arrest record.

And the Latina/Hispanic term of endearment is Mami. No, I think this woman is the kids' mom. I also don't think she's a meth user as she doesn't seem to be suffering from wasting away.

I'm still really curious about the removal of the "cards". I just can't figure out if MS edits/bans those or if the receiver dumps them. If the latter is true, why not delete the whole post? I'd like to know why she has a relationship stretching back four years to JH. Seems like it was long before the marriage.

Still waiting to see the "retractions" JH talks about.

Reporting and LE response on this crime has been so confusing. We were told that Willis was released to home arrest. This article states that he's sitting in jail. Maybe he was more than a bit concerned about the "welcoming committee" awaiting his return at the the condo complex. This article confirms that Cory Houghton is Willis's son-in-law.

Photos of Secret Underground Room Released


"A trap door in a residential backyard leading to an underground tunnel and a secret room sounds like something out of a Hollywood script, but this real life mystery has a disturbing twist.

Law enforcement can only speculate on what that unfinished underground lair was going to be used for, as the homeowner sits in jail on 15 counts of possession of child porn....."

and

"Homeowner William Willis and his son-in-law Cory Houghton were first arrested for trying to break into a pharmacy, and based on Willis' admissions, investigators got a search warrant on his home."

I went back and did some checking on whitepages and a couple of other sites and found something interesting. If you look up Willis, his address comes up at the one which is detailed in the news reports. He's listed as living with a man with an "ie" ending to his name. I believe I have found that guy living in a nearby town, however. He's the one with the disturbing MS page. He's also close in age to Willis. Then there is an older male person listed there. I can't seem to cross reference this guy at all. Going back to the "ie" guy, he mentions that his dad passed in 2008. Willis is alive. Could Willis be his uncle?

Anyway, going back to the older person there, I changed that name to the feminine form and that person comes back at the same address as Willis. Everything I've looked at, though, shows the name in the male form, ending in "an". The female form ends with an "a".

Are we dealing with some gender confusion? There was all the cross-dressing stuff found. Whatever is going on, I hope to high heck that the child is in a safe place and getting evaluation and therapy.

I also determined that Cory and his family live/lived 10 miles to the east.

Missizzy
05-07-2011, 01:56 PM
There was quite an uproar from the neighbors when he was sent home. I don't believe that there's any charge of molestation but there are many charges involving child pornography. This guy not only had a tunnel into a secret room (which was far too quickly bulldozed, IMO) but was also known to wear disguises and cross-dressed. At the time, comments stated that the wife had not been seen for a long time. The neighbors all expressed concern when he was sent home as the apartment complex is filled with children.

There's also the fact that Cory Houghton, the son-in-law, seems to make it quite clear on MS that he and his family (which includes a toddler) have been living with the Willis'. Did the PO know that there was a baby in that home?

I found this comment disturbing too:

http://www.abc15.com/dpp/news/region_west_valley/glendale/child-porn-suspect-apprehended-at-phx-apartment-complex


"A neighbor in the area told ABC15 he'd seen Willis multiple times in the days he was avoiding police. HF said he found Willis’s demeanor very disturbing.

"I have seen this gentleman twice now, walking up and down the road, and both times had to be right around the time when kids were getting out of school. They could be really vulnerable,” HF said. “There is a place for those types of people, and it ain't out here in the real world."

"Buffalo" William Willis, Tunnel-Digging/Cross-Dressing Kiddy Porn Connoisseur, Sentenced to 20 Years in Prison
December 20, 2011

"William Willis, 46, pleaded guilty earlier this year to one count of sexual exploitation of a minor and two counts of attempt to commit sexual exploitation of a minor. He was sentenced this morning by Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Warren Granville to 20 years in prison. Additionally, Willis will be placed on lifetime probation.

Willis was arrested in July of 2010 after he and another man, 21-year-old Cory Houghton, were seen leaving the scene of a pharmacy burglary near 91st Avenue and Thunderbird. During the interrogation, Willis told the cops that he had stolen property at his house, resulting in a search warrant for the property...."

and

"....directing police to his house was probably one of the dumber things he did that day. According to court documents obtained by New Times, the tunnel and the kiddy-porn was only a part of the creep-tastic stuff goin' on at the Willis residence. When searching the house, cops also found what they referred to as "cross-dressing clothing" -- which apparently was in plain view in an office in Willis' house. Along with the RuPaul gear, and sex toys also found by detectives, there were pictures of kids having sex littered throughout the office...."

and

"...about a year after his arrest, Willis removed an ankle monitor he was ordered to wear as his kiddy-porn case works its way through the courts. He was arrested by U.S. Marshals two days later. Following his second arrest, Willis' wife, Jamie Willis, was arrested for helping him escape house arrest...."

and

"....When the two were arrested, police found William Willis in a disguise and discovered that Jamie Willis had changed the number on the couple's cell phone. When asked about helping her husband flee from custody, Jamie Willis told U.S. Marshals "what can I say? I love my husband."
