    WI - Timothy Urbanski for child pornography, Superior, 2011

    Yes, I do believe that I would freak out if I found my 7 year old with a strange cell phone with videos and photos she'd been asked to make. Children's clothes in the perp's house??? This is creepy.

    It's interesting, isn't it? Some pedophiles look like happy healthy people and pull the wool over everybody's eyes. Some pedophiles look like.....well, pedophiles.

    Superior Police Discover Large Child Pornography Collection
    July 28, 2011

    "A Superior man accused of possessing a large collection of child pornography appeared in court Thursday. He was arrested Wednesday for an alleged incident involving a 7-year-old girl. 47-year-old Timothy Urbanski appeared via television in Douglas County Court. Police said he gave a 7-year-old girl a cell phone and asked her to take pictures and videos. After what her parents found on the phone police got involved...."

    and

    "...A search District Attorney Dan Blank said in court uncovered nine computers and five cellphones containing child pornography files. Blank also said police found children's clothing in his home. But it was the cellphone Urbanski gave to the girl that got police searching for more...."

    and

    "...According to the reports its not the first time the suspect has had contact with children in the neighborhood. "From what we know he lived in that area and was known to spend time with the kids but it wasn't unknown to the parents he was having contact with their children..."

    And I do believe that I'd really lose it when I saw this mug shot:

    Sometimes, mug shots can bring out the worst in people. But the candid shots here on FB aren't giving me a warm and fuzzy feeling:

    Weird Wisconsin. If that guy is not related to Ed Gein I'd be shocked.

    What's up with his "Web Show" on FB? Lizarone? I guess he plays such a charachter? I ain't clicking it.

    Poor little girl. Lord knows this poor child had to be in some sort of shock.

    I want to know who those clothes belong to. My guess is that parents in Superior are not feeling real comfortable tonight.

    Lizarone? How do I miss these things? I'll click it.

    The video is actually quite informative as it shows just where this guy met up with kids and it shows his house. Hopefully, parents are checking their little kids' backpacks tonight.

    I have a suspicion that Urbanski and his brother might just have a few "challenges". That does NOT negate in any way, the trauma that these children have been through.

    Prosecutor calls Superior child porn suspect a ‘danger’
    July 29, 2011

    "....He [Urbanski] recently provided a cell phone to 7-year-old girl in his neighborhood and asked her to take pictures of herself and her friends,” [District Attorney, Dan] Blank said. Task force members executed a search warrant on the cell phone confirming the presence of what appears to be child pornography. “This 7-year-old girl, there’s an image of her on the phone in the defendant’s kitchen eating ice cream,” Blank said...."

    It's on his FB wall, Missizzy--there are some clips posted April 18th, and also at the end of March. I'm with Filly--I'm not watching!

    This says at link the guy gives a reason for having the pornography. It's taking forever so I haven't read it yet. I can just imagine.

    Neighbors made note that all of a sudden they see him with these little girls. One woman claims he would give her a dirty look when she'd see him with the children.

    From Filly's link (which was slow to open):

    "...A Superior man allegedly involved told police the reason he was downloading the material as because he wanted to clear it off the internet...."

    Now, that's one I haven't heard before.

    Have you watched the videos yet, MissIzzy? I can't quite bring myself to do so, but I'm curious.

    I live in Wisconsin (although south-central, nowhere near Superior) and I have to admit--I kept thinking that this creep's name sounded familiar and I was worried that I maybe knew him somehow. I did some poking around on FB, and there is someone (female) who is friends with a few friends of mine with a similar last name, which is why it sounded to familiar. Whew. No connection.

    I feel like Nancy--always ready to try the key. Yes, I watched the videos. Hmmmm. Nothing even remotely pornographic but creepy as all get out. I'd be very interested in other people's take on them. He made them at 5:30 and 6:30 in the morning and just kind of rambles. They start off with a little "house" music and odd special effects--negative images stuff. He seems reasonably well-spoken (uses the word, ambience) but tries on different creepy voices and personas. Lizarone is pronounced Liz-a-roan and he says that the producer is Professer (sic) Rubberten and Claeroma (not positive about the 4th letter--it's written on a blackboard). He also mentions that he has an art exhibit opening on April 1st at the Superior Library and encourages his viewers to go see it. He says that there won't be any shows during Easter break. He does talk about cuing up a show (mentions wrestling and cars) and all I see are introductions. Maybe there's something I'm not seeing.

    I pinky promise that there's nothing untoward. But it is freaky.

    On March 23rd, Urbanski talks about plans to rebroadcast an earlier show, "Lizarone's Spook Show" which was webcast two years ago, from another location. He hopes everyone enjoys his new show. A female friend writes to him and tells him that she doesn't quite understand the meaning of the show and tells him to enunciate his words better. In this particular video, there are no special effects. This video is a precursor to the ones that follow.

    He also has a video where he plays with a very large cat named Spook-ums but there's mention of a cat named Sampson.

    Just a wild guess here. I think the guy is spooky and creepy and that kids probably dared each other to get close to him. He probably gave kids treats or let them play with his computer--things their parents wouldn't allow. He talks about a pizza place and about going to the Olive Garden (but sitting at a table in the back??). Instead of the word "debut", he uses the word "dayveiw". I can't quite get a grasp on his level of functioning.

    Some "wall photos" here:

    http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...7661139&type=1

    He either shops at or works at or has some connection with a hardware store in Duluth. He's photographed there with Red Green. There are photos of his brother, who I'm quite sure has some level of disability. One of his cats died last June and over 200 people sent their sympathy. I think Urbanski must have a large group of people who know him and care about him. The recent charges must have been quite a shock. He doesn't look physically well. He's quite gaunt and you can see bottles of meds in several of his videos. Very curious stuff.
