    Oh no, how scary is that - He's obviously been spending a lot of time with children whilst he's been on the run :( I wonder how many victims there have been over the years :(

    Szeles is denying being Selas, although according to authorities he admits that he legally changed his name...

    IMO they sure look like the same person. You'd think he would have changed his style of glasses at least, since he was on the run! I bet he thought he would never be caught after all this time, though. I wonder how authorities managed to track him down... Probably a tip.

    The cached version of his website has this creepy description of the swimming lessons he offered:

    Each swimming session includes a group lesson, as well as individual hands- on instruction for each child, and a free-swim fun period. Normal duration is 90 minutes, though a child may leave sooner if necessary. (Our specialty is that one on one individual hands on private lesson time with each child)

    Bold, italic, underline by me

    The pool he was using according to his website is the historic Belmont Park Plunge. It has been closed since 2014 awaiting renovations, so I don't know if he stopped lessons or moved them.

    http://www.belmontpark.com/theplunge/

    I had water therapy for back trouble at this pool and it is huge and busy. If he was in the water teaching kids, "hands on" molesting would not be noticed. :mad: He says he had Scout Leader Dads supervising around the pool (and in the locker room), but I can't imagine that many Dads would be available during lesson times or see much. He gave free lessons (so benevolent) and even arranged half-price entry fees for the kids. He made it sooooo easy to become his prey!

    He changed his last name by changing the spelling. I bet it is pronounced the same way.

    Szeles = Selas

    That caught my eye too. I figure that he was making up the difference himself and didn't want anyone to know as it would seem strange. Yup!

    And another thing...even though he mentions that he may accept girls, I doubt he did. It seems like a perfunctory addition to make sure he doesn't get called out for violating a law. JMO
