It looks like one of the Burrells preached a sermon entitled "Calm Our Storms", on Father's Day, no less. The man should have practiced what he preached.

Wonder if there'll be child porn involved? These animals seem as tho they are the kind to be into all kinds of perversions...the whole friggin' family -- ugh.

Also makes me wonder how much "the wimmen" know.

Jared L. Mohler graduated from Graceland University in 1983. I found his name in an alumni magazine at:

http://www.graceland.edu/pdf/alumni/HORDec2004.pdf

From Wikipedia:

"Graceland University is a private liberal arts university of about 2300 students and 150 faculty with campuses in Lamoni, Iowa and Independence, Missouri. The school, though non-sectarian, was established by, and is affiliated with, the Community of Christ, formerly the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (RLDS), and was founded in 1895 as Lamoni College."


I also found a failed link to a poem written by a Jared Mohler entitled "When My Love For Her Overwhelms Me". Not sure this is the same guy but he did get overwhelmed, after all.

I'm not sure what to think about this university. Can anyone shed some light on this, please. It looks like David Mohler is a Senior Network Specialist there and several other Mohlers (male and female, young and middle-aged) show up in links.

Roland Mohler shows up here:

Deadbeat: Medic44 - Cast Boolits

Seems he's a gun/bullet enthusiast.

Someone wrote this to Roland last year on his Cast Bullet forum. It sounds as if he borrowed something and failed to return it. The members seem none too pleased with him:

"Hey Roland:
Karma wins out. You will receive your just rewards for screwing a good group of people and stealing something. The universe wins out always. Too bad we won't see it happen......but happen it will.....of that I have no doubt.
Payback is a bxtch...........remember that."

Yeah, Roland, remember that. By the way, he's been released.

I guess we don't know when this abuse occurred. I found an essay written in 2005 by a Lamoni High School student. Lamoni is where David Mohler lives--and where Graceland University is. This girl is writing about how a book, "Fat Chance", concerning anorexia, resonated with her.

David Mohler and a woman with the same last name show up as serving as ushers at this church:

http://www.lamonicofchrist.org/bulle...2009-07-26.pdf

I also found a blog by a woman of the same name. She is married to a theology student and expecting a baby. She seems quite bright.

I know from personal experience with my children that anorexia can be an outcome of rape. Hopefully, whoever is the victim of these monsters will get the help he/she desperately needs.

David A. and a M Mohler share the same address in Lamoni, Ia. with two girls (both A's). MM shows up as a secretary in the Computer Science Dept. at Graceland, where as David is the Senior Network Specialist. That might explain the Cyber Crimes Task Force involvement.

"Authorities did not immediately release any information on the circumstances of the crimes and it was not immediately clear if the victims were related to the family, but officials said it involved more than one child."

This article clarifies who the perps are and how they are related.

New conference scheduled for Wednesday.

If I lived anywhere near these perps, I'd sure want to hear the presser --and how LE intends to keep people safe from these vile beings....I bet there are some people freaking out right now (and probably some that aren't).

I was a victim of rape while I was still a minor, and I have very little compassion for those who commit a sexual assault of any kind. I went through years of counseling before I could function fully again and have since spent many volunteer hours helping other victims of rape. That being said, none of you have the full story, no one besides the people making the accusations does yet. Talk about mob mentality. I have known this family for all of my 25 years of life. I grew up with both of David's daughters and also know Roland's daughters. The girl who wrote the review on the book on anorexia is David's daughter and if I remember correctly that book was a required assignment at school. No, none of the men involved were sex offenders. Ed (Burrel Jr) has had multiple marriages and the divorces were very messy. There are people in their family who would say that a vindictive ex wife may have been involved in the accusations. Graceland is a conservative University, and a good school. David, Michelle and their children were always very involved with the community and have all spent many volunteer hours making Lamoni a good place to live. It is unfair to call them vile beings before finding out more information. I guess I should thank you all for reminding me that you're no longer innocent until proven guilty, you're guilty until proven innocent and even if you are proven 100% to be innocent you're still treated as guilty by society when it comes to sex crimes.

This investigation is continuing.

We are learning more about five family members accused of child sex crimes. Investigators said one victim was younger than 12 years old.

Court records indicate the crimes happened at least four times, in 1988, 1990, 1991 and 1995. Missouri Highway Patrol, who is leading the investigation involving police from 11 local law enforcement agencies, said there are multiple victims.

....

Investigators plan to better explain why he and his four relatives are suspects Wednesday morning.


http://kshb.m0bl.net/w/main/story/7721641/

Wonder what LE will share today?

I heard on the local news this morning that they had cadaver dogs on the property and were looking for bodies, also that the abuse had spanned decades.

Welcome, silverflower. All my love to you as a survivor.

I agree with you that on this and other message boards, accused people are rarely afforded the small benefit of being assumed innocent until proven guilty. I too find such a mentality very harmful and dangerous, but I can't pretend that I don't understand it. Folks en masse get hopped up at the mere mention of child sexual abuse and that can be blinding.

I appreciate your perspective and will withhold my limited judgment and simply pray for all who are touched by these allegations.

Cadaver Dogs to Search for Bodies in Bates City Child Sex Investigation

this doesn't sound good at all.

<snip>

BATES CITY, MO - An investigation into child sex crimes now requires the help of cadaver dogs. Police are expected to search for bodies on a stretch of farm property near Bates City, Missouri after five people were arrested on child sex charges Tuesday.

Welcome to WS Silver, and we appreciate your perspective. There is a rush to judgement and a certain mob mentality when it comes to a case like this that potentially involves the abuse of a minor and there are allegations that the abuse was transmitted via image.

I am grateful that your experience with this family has been a good one-we will watch this story unfold of course, but I have to say that on the surface there appears to be a great deal of concern in the LE community regarding this family. It is hard for me to believe that this concern is solely based on the allegations of someone who might have an axe to grind. JMO.

I respect your reservations, but I don't share them. Here on a message board I don't have to consider anyone innocent until proven guilty. I certainly won't be extending that benefit in this case.

I am however concerned for you when and if these men's crimes come to light. It's never easy to learn you've been fooled and defended the inexcusable. If that is what happened, you will have my deepest sympathy.
