    KS - Missing animated park clown found in sex offender's house

    Wichita Eagle, with pictures, video:

    Joyland’s Louie the Clown found in home of sex offender

    ---
    For more than half a century, Louie the Clown played the Wurlitzer organ at Wichita’s Joyland Amusement Park. In a police briefing Thursday, Detective Matt Lang said Louie disappeared from Joyland sometime in 2005 or 2006 and was officially reported stolen in 2010.
    ---
    On Tuesday afternoon, Wichita police searched a house connected with Damian Mayes and located the missing clown. Mayes, 39, was a former employee of the park who built and renovated the Wurlitzer organ.

    A Harvey County jury convicted Mayes in 2010 of aggravated indecent liberties with a child and aggravated criminal sodomy.

    Louie, decked out in his colorful garb, was re-introduced to the public at a briefing at the Wichita Police Department. Sporting bright red smiling lips and bright blue eyebrows and cheeks, Louie was propped up in a chair by the podium, his hands planted firmly on the table.

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.
