    WV - Jack Gravenmier for sex abuse, child porn, Charleston, 2012

    Jack Edwin Granmier is 78 years olllllllllllllllllllllllld. That didn't stop him from prior molestation of a young boy or sending sexually offensive photographs to another boy in Missouri or going to meet the boy in Missouri.

    So, he travels from West Virginia to Missouri to molest a kid. He's 78 years old. How long has he been doing this? That kills me about these old *** perverts.

    I think the thing that bothers me the most is that "old perverts" started out as "young perverts" and never got stopped in their tracks. Think of the years and years this guy had to offend. Yikes!!

    I wonder how many young teens that Gravenmier met while snowboarding and alpine skiing? Is there much skiing around Charleston? Possibly, he's traveled a good bit.

    "....Gravenmier sells skiing equipment from his home on Beaumont Road in South Hills, according to the United States Ski and Snowboard Association's website. In 2006, he won the Burkett-Dodge Award for alpine skiing, according to the website...."

    And mountain bikes, cave exploration and an amateur radio license. All sorts of ways to access the young boys and teens.

    Amateur radio license? That's easily the fourth or fifth pedophile that had that for a hobby. I'd posted maybe two. That's weird. Of course it'd be a miniscule number out of all people that have a amatuer radio license, but hey.

    MI, I missed two letters in his name. Thank you for adding his name again.

    Man, can ya imagine going into a cave and he's in there?

    Five hundred miles?

    He travelled all that way to hurt a kid. I wasn't sure how far away it was.

    Five flippin hundred miles. I am so glad his geriatric tail got busted.

    Oh he's had to been to Bavaria. Heidi is safe, but Goat Peter isn't.

    I guess 500 miles to him is nada.

    Nobody's going to tell me that Gravenmier didn't get out and about. He's got relatives in Oregon and in New England. What'll you bet that he paid visits to his family and checked out the local boys while at it?

    Bavaria would not surprise me. No.

    I too was really struck by his age and the number of decades he has probably been doing this, Missizzy. That is what disturbs me so much about a lot of these cases. These people are getting away with these activities for literally most of their lives. It's small consolation that they end up in jail when they are elderly and have already wreaked as much havoc as possible.

    Thread: Most interesting classic unsolved murder cases

    This thread currently has over 350 cases with a brief synopsis of each and we are still adding additional cases.

    You can access a spreadsheet that lists the cases in alphabetical order with the page & post number so that you can locate a particular case you may be interested in. It also contains links to any cases that already have a thread on WS.

    Many cases do not have a thread. Please feel free to start one in the appropriate forum if you would like to look into one. Should you start a thread on one of these cases, please let me know so that I can add the link to the spreadsheet.

    I just posted an oft quoted statistic on another thread. The FBI are saying that studies show that the AVERAGE offender has 117 victims.

    AVERAGE.



    http://www.antichildporn.org/facts.html

    • Every 15 seconds a child is abused in the United States.
    • 15% of all abused children are sexual abuse victims.
    • The average sex offender has 117 victims.
    • 95% of sexual abuse victims know their perpetrator.
    • 95% of all teenage prostitutes have been sexually abused.
    • There are an estimated 60 million survivors of childhood sexual abuse in America today.

    The statistics are mind-numbing and heartbreaking. Even with the incredible volume of cases we post here, we are barely scratching the surface of what is happening out there. I must work harder to try and ferret them out.
