    So sorry for not responding sooner. Have been offline for awhile. The databases are no longer on Google or DocStoc. I am currently upgrading the database and converting it to a database program. I am needing help from a programmer to get it up on a site that can be viewed. My programmer has been unavailable due to her mother being seriously injured. So, I'm a little stuck at the moment.

    I hope to eventually have this up on a website that can be searched by anyone. Am looking into the legal angles of making it public. All information has been gained from public sources, so my gut feeling is it should be okay. If anyone has any opinions on this, I would be glad to hear them.

    ETA: If there is enough interest, I could put the old format database back up on Google while I work on the conversion. The new format is going to be very expanded and much more detailed than the old one. I'm looking forward to getting it up and running.

    Belinda, I would love to see the database. It sounds very interesting, is the new one done yet?

    For those of you who know me, you know that I spent more than 6 months working feverishly on a database of child abusers. I had tracked 500 offenders. I just needed to do something about the horrors I was reading here. But then I stopped. One, I need a programmer to help me get it up online and expand it. The other reason is I couldn't decide if all of the work I put into it was going to do any good whatsoever.

    I thought it would be good if people could look up offenders in their area. I thought it could be used to pressure Child Protective Services to make some changes as I had also tracked cases that had CPS involvement prior to the crime. I found out which states had the weakest sentences for offenders. But, then I couldn't figure out what to do with all of the information I had gathered. I am homebound and can only gather the information. I finally became so distressed that I left Websleuths for quite some time and stopped working on the database. So, now I'm stuck. What do I do with it? Is it of any use? Should I continue working on it?

    It is so difficult to continually read these cases and not be able to do anything about it. So, where do we go from here? Any thoughts?

    Belinda, I have missed you terribly. I think your database would be a welcome addition to our resource center for a variety of reasons, including pressure on state and federal agencies.

    I have asked some others to weigh in-hang tight. I am computer illiterate, but would love to find some help for you to get your database into a user friendly form.

    Pinawa,Manitoba, Canada - Child Abuse/Molestation?

    Does anyone know of any incidence of child abuse/molestation in early 1970's possibly later in this small town. My sister is slightly older than me has been remembering things over the course of a few years and has just told me and I recall small pieces as well. We have both had some challenges as we got older. I honestly do not know where to start dealing with this. We do not feel we can ask our aging parents as this person was a family friend. Many thanks, superg. I am sorry if I posted this in the wrong spot, I am new here. Thank you.

    Okay, If I did this right, these links should give you access to the old databases and perp sheets. Still working on the upgrade. Can someone check and see if the links work?

    Wow

    Belinda - I stumbled across this thread tonight, as I am relatively new to WS. I must say that you have done something amazing here - I work in the human services field with kids, and to see this information is astounding. I DEFINITELY think that this is invaluable information - and is a great start to taking it to CPS, politicians, etc. to see a change! Keep up with the great work! :Banane10:

    My name is Lisa Banks, and I was married to Donald Scott Brunstetter from August 2000 to August 2002. I don't feel the need to go into all the details about what made him a terrible husband, but, in a nutshell:

    He completely misrepresented his financial situation when we met. He claimed that he was a partner in a real estate investment company, which he was not, and.claimed to own developed real estate in both Maryland and West Virginia, when he did not own any real property in either state. He indicated that he owned the 4 vehicles parked in front of “his” (rented) house. While 2 of the 4 vehicles were titled in his name when we met, he had bought them with money borrowed from friends and family which he had never repaid. The other two vehicles were not his at all. He was, in fact, on the verge of bankruptcy

    He had fabricated a "history" for himself, omitting or minimizing any mention of disciplinary schools, mental institutions, drug addiction or legal troubles. He did not disclose his first marriage until we were preparing to be married and he had to fill out the marriage license application truthfully. I still don’t know how many children he has, although there are at least 2, neither of whom he has provided for financially. He mischaracterized the circumstances of the conception of those children, although the truth eventually came out.

    At the time, searching the internet for information on someone was more difficult, and not something most people even considered, although it is almost standard procedure to “Google” a blind date these days.

    When he and I met, I had a daughter, who was 8 years old. She was a tiny little thing, and my absolute greatest accomplishment. She was smart, funny, and brave. I adored her and would never have put her in harm's way if I had known about Donnie's past.

    He wasn't winning any "Husband of the Year" awards, but seemed to be a wonderful stepfather and I was glad to see someone taking a genuine interest in Lauren (my daughter). That is the only reason I did not leave him within weeks of the wedding, since he dropped the facade of being kind to me almost immediately. I have since had occasion to speak with his several of his “exes” and we all seem to have had the same experiences with Donnie, from the perspective of being his "wife" or "girlfriend."

    Early on, he had included his 7 year old son in their outings to the beach, pool, four-wheeling, or out to run errands, which made me more accepting of the idea of allowing him to take her along on adventures without me. When his son went back to his Mom's after a month or so, Lauren begged me to let her hang out with Donnie while I worked, instead of attending a day camp over the summer.

    She never told me when things changed, and always seemed to be happy and her teachers often told me she was a standout among their students, with a bright future in any field she should choose to pursue. She tell anyone what Donnie was doing to her until she was in 10th grade. I still do not fully understand why, since she and I had often discussed inappropriate touching, but she didn't. I suspect that at 8 or 9 years of age, she did not understand it, but once she entered her teens, she not only understood that these acts were sexual in nature, and began to blame herself.
    Several years after the divorce was final, when he was long out of our lives, I learned my daughter had begun cutting herself. She was 13. I got her into counseling, and when she was 15, she admitted that he had molested her, pretty much from the first time he was alone with her, and on a regular basis until she was 10.

    He was arrested, denied wrongdoing, and the case went to trial. He entered a "Not Guilty" plea, was found guilty, and had three character witnesses at his sentencing hearing, none of whom had attended any part of the trial. One of them falsely identified himself as his father (he is a Junior), a respected local businessman, one a woman I had never met, and one his mother. All of them called my daughter and me liars, although we had no reason on earth to put ourselves through a trial when he had been out of our lives for YEARS by then and we did not anticipate ever seeing him again.

    In August 2008, he was sentenced to 45 years, which was restructured so that part of it was suspended, and several sentences for different acts were set to run concurrently instead of consecutively. In the end, he had a 15 year sentence, with one day off for every 2 days he served. He became eligible for parole in 2011, but his first parole hearing was not until July 2012.

    In the intervening time, he had written a letter to the judge admitting to what he had done. That was a huge relief to my daughter who wasn't sure that people believed her. She took a real beating in court, as they tried to make her appear to be unreliable as a witness based on things that had happened LONG AFTER he had abused her, and may even have been their cause.

    Lauren and I attended his 2012 parole hearing. We also got friends and acquaintances to write letters to the parole commission asking that they NOT release him at that time, in part because he has had no substantial therapy to deal with his attraction to children, and would pose a threat to others if released, but also because she and I are both still in counseling trying to figure out how to process what happened and move forward in our lives.

    Obviously, this is especially hard for my daughter, but it impacts me as well. If she is in pain, I am in pain. I feel very betrayed by Donnie, and although I am not technically considered a "victim" I feel like one. I was lied to, manipulated, and financially taken advantage of, however these issues pale in comparison to his abuse of Lauren.

    This is Donnie's second and last parole hearing. If he is granted early release, he will be out by the end of the summer. If denied, he will be released in 2018, when the 10 years he is required to serve ends. Had he committed these crimes later in time, the laws would have required a much stiffer sentence, without any portion being suspended and without parole. I hope the Parole Board will consider this in determining whether to release him at this time.

    Based on statistics alone, I have reason to believe that Lauren was not Donnie’s first victim, and believe strongly that Donnie poses a continued threat to children upon his release, and ask that he NOT be released early, considering that he got a very light sentence to begin with for a crime that will affect my daughter and me for the rest of our lives.

    PLEASE write to the parole commission on our behalf and ask them NOT to release him this summer!
    WE DID IT! Convicted pedophile Donald Scott Brunstetter (details in the CAPER - Citizens Against Pedophile's Early Release Forum http://www.websleuths.com/forums/for...ht-on-Children) will remain behind bars for the duration of his sentence. Thanks to WS members, and Tricia's True Crime Radio listeners, at least 100 letters were received by the Parole Board prior to his July 30th, 2015 Parole Hearing, opposing his release, and they listened.
    Visit http://noparole4pedophile.weebly.com/ for background on the case.

    My posts are strictly MY opinion under circumstances when many points of view need to be considered. I apologize in advance to anyone whose potential involvement is contemplated in error, or who may be offended because I do not see eye to eye with them on all matters related to this case. I hope our differences can be set aside as we unite in the search for this victim or the perpetrator of this crime. Your opinions and insights are just as valuable as mine.
