    Of course, bystanders like us can argue all day long about whether they took the right action, but it sounds like they didn't have the evidence they needed back in 2013. And the admission of guilt applied to crimes where the statute of limitations had expired.

    This is an absolutely horrifying case, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if we hear worse as it is investigated. The number of victims could be huge. And I can't imagine the horror of being the relative who found the obscene materials. Three lifetimes of unimpeded crime - when I think of the victims, it's just heartbreaking.
    I agree that sufficient evidence is necessary in order to successfully file charges in these cases. But it really drives home the importance of lifting the statute of limitations on all sexual assault cases to equal those of murder (meaning no limit) in all states and not only for children but for all. I know there is leeway in some states that allow the statute to start running at the time a victim comes forward or realizes they were abused but IMO there shouldn't be any limitations. Period.

    I also agree with y'all that we'll discover a long history of abuse by these brothers. I can't help but think of John Wayne Gacy. I also saw a program (maybe on ID? I don't remember) about a girl in Tacoma who went missing in 1961 that may have been linked to Ted Bundy - when he was... 14?!

    What ticks me off the most is that these men are so old that they may have gotten away with crimes for many years and even if they go to prison tomorrow they'll have had decades of living free from punishment.

    Guhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. 🤢

    I'm just so thankful the police and FBI are involved now. It appears he's a habitual child sexual abuser, imo.

    Insidious, to say the least.

    January 25, 2013: Seattle police Detective Danial Conine interviews Edwin Emery at 141 N.E. 59th St. He admits there could be child pornography on his computer, admits to sexual abuse of one of his sisters and that sister’s daughter, according to court documents. Then age 73, Edwin Emery also discusses his sexual attraction to “sub-teenage” girls, court documents state. The interview is recorded. However, prosecutors do not file charges.

    Here's what the article says about ownership of the house in Seattle...

    March 14, 1962: Edwin H. Emery, one of the three brothers, buys the Green Lake property at 141 N.E. 59th St. in Seattle. March 14, 1962, is the day the deed was filed. Edwin purchases the home for $12,950. City directories list only Thomas D. Emery at the property in 1965, 1980 and 1990. The 1965 Seattle city directory lists Thomas and Edwin H. Emery.

    So there is some contradiction in the City directory about who lived there and when.

    There is a house they owned in Shelton that was also searched but it doesn't say who lived there and when.

    The search extended from the home in the Green Lake neighborhood to another home the brothers owned 90 miles away in Shelton.

    Wow. Praying they find out who the girls are and that they are all alive. I did see in one of the articles that a flyer about Lindsey Baum was found. I sure hope if they had anything to do with her disappearance the evidence is there.
    I think we will be following this story for a while.

    I didn't either since it's so far from Seattle. I didn't know the house in Shelton is only 25 miles from Lindsey's town. You were right.

    I was snooping around looking for more addresses for these brothers, family property, etc. and saw that their mother died in 1986 or 1987 and I show her at that address (of course, she could have been in a care facility and mail just going to that address). But I do wonder if she was in that home while any of this was going on Older brother seems to be the one that passed away in 2016 and had the home in Shelton. But I wonder if that is also a long term family owned home as I showed the three creepy brothers going to high school in Shelton (at least long enough to be in the yearbook).

    The father (Harold) of these three shows an address in Shelton on his WW2 draft registration so the family must have lived in Shelton and then some of them moved to that house in Seattle. It's late and I am tired so maybe not making much sense lol I do wonder if the older brother that passed away was involved as well. I really hope not. This is all just so sick.

    The Shelton home is attached to 14 acres of property - the searching will take some time

    I wonder if they will be able to get DNA from the shoes and clothes and if they will be able to identify any of the girls in the photos.

    It's unbelievable how many of these creeps go undetected for years before they are caught.

    I wonder if anyone will come forward that has been abused (besides the sister and her daughter) - it sounds like this could have been going on for 60+ years. This is so hard to wrap my head around - how did they get away with this for so long? I am just shocked.

    Oh wow!! I remember mention of a few people in Shelton when we were in the thick of Lindsey's case. Wouldn't it be something if her case could finally be solved!!
    You are the anchor to my soul, you won't let go ...
