This blog is now our ARCHIVE, any new deaths will be posted in our NEW Blog.

However our work has not ended, we are continuing in our new blog HERE. One of several changes is, that we will no longer track foreign deaths. In our new blog we will focus on making statistics easier to understand and report from. Nothing is gone from this blog, it is still here for folks to see.

All the work of past years is now folded into this report: Sex Offender Laws: Collateral Consequences - Killings and Murders. We urge folks to see that Lawmakers get that report. Hopefully changes in laws can be made which will PROTECT registrants and their families. We want to thanks those that have alerted us to articles we may have missed, and hope folks continue to do so in the future.

If you have been following this blog, we URGE YOU, to follow the NEW BLOG to keep up to date on what is happening across the U.S.. For now have a great day and a better tomorrow. eAdvocate

Commenting Policy

Our blogs address the varying stages of a sex offender's circumstances:
  • LifeBefore a conviction
  • LifeDuring (prosecution for offense)
  • LifeAfter when folks are back in the community
  • Life in Civil Commitment
  • Or after death (Murders, Suicides, and Related Deaths blogs)
If your comment is within those realms, and of a reasonable size sticking to the Topic of the Post, except as noted below, it most likely will be posted,.

Who May Comment: Since our blogs are intended for adult education, we will not post comments made by minors, and if we learn a comment has been posted by a minor, it will be removed. Thanks.
WARNING: Some folks are not permitted to use the Internet (State registration laws or if under supervision and so restricted), if you are one of those folks please do not post comments. We do not want you to get into trouble.
LINKS: If you post a comment which includes a link (URL) to somewhere else on the Internet, that link CANNOT be a tiny or other shortened link, ( Shortened or tiny links WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. Folks that visit this blog need to know where a link takes them before clicking on that link. There are NO EXCEPTIONS to this policy on links.).
Respect: Comments are moderated and those that violate respect, in any way, or comments that could place this blog in legal jeopardy somehow, will be rejected. Comments that attack anyone will be ignored. It's that simple.
Personal Information: It is not our policy to post personal information, and will reject a comment if it -in any way- points to where a person lives, or contains facts of crimes they may have committed. Personal stories are not appropriate for Post comments, please do not post such, as we will not post them. There are many laws which reference personal information and we do not intend to knowingly violate them. We do review every comment submitted and make a decision as to posting.
Comments and Courts: Just in case folks haven't noticed, blogger comments are being prosecuted in courts. So you might want to see some we have saved for your review HERE and HERE. Folks should not underestimate the reach of the courts.

Also remember, this is a place on the Internet, and the Internet has a memory and other folks will see what you post, today and into the future.

PS: Since we do have a life please do not expect weekend comment updating. For the most part we update comments in the middle of the night, when Internet traffic is lowest.

For now, have a great day and a better tomorrow.

In our blogs we provide information about sex offender topics. We cover topics, issues, pending and historical court cases; and consequences facing, adult and juvenile sex offenders, in prison and LifeAfter in society.

Current issues, sex offender registries, recidivism, dangerousness, risk assessment tools, therapy, civil commitment, subtle vigilantism, harassment and discrimination are all covered. Also other community concerns related to sex offender issues, and the United Nations human rights issues.

These blogs are an advocacy central repository of information about sex offender issues, founded under Project Anonymity. Accordingly, we do not reveal any information about visitors or volunteers. The information found on these sites is not "Legal Advice." If anyone needs legal advice, please seek local legal counsel where you live, as those lawyers know local laws best. Our information comes from many folks, professionals and nonprofessionals of many fields, ex-offenders, their friends and family, and research we do on issues and concerns raised.

While our advocacy keeps folks updated, it is intended to be educational for criminal justice and mental health professionals, and public policy decision makers, as well as offenders and their families and friends. Our mission of education and elimination of sexual abuse is accomplished through our deeper purpose, see below.

It is our intent to create a respectful environment for understanding and healing, "a Discussion-Safety-Zone for related topics" while preserving our "Visitors' Zones-of-Privacy" and to interact without judgment. Today far too many communities fail to create these safety-zones!

Deeper Purpose

Our deeper purpose centers around the spirit and fundamental meaning of the United Nations, Declaration of Human Rights. We believe laws that have been -and are being enacted- to control previously convicted sex offenders, violate both the spirit and intent of the Declaration of Human Rights, as we have identified under each Article of that document.

While recognizing past acts of these offenders, we do not condone or try to justify them. These acts are embedded in emotional history. For healing to begin society, victims, the offenders and their families must create an environment conducive to healing and restoration. Such an environment has followed every major war, and today society needs to rebuild itself; creating a LifeAfter Sex Abuses one case at a time.

Unfortunately many folks believe in the hatred, the vindictiveness, the further retribution, the "separate them from us" colonizing the sex offender; societal relagation. This isolationism -a division of sorts- is precisely what perpetuates abuses. Society fails to recognize this. Today's laws are perpetuating isolationism preventing healing, and eroding fundamental rights of everyone.

Our deeper purpose leans toward exposing myths and misconceptions, and revealing what masks truths about sex offenders. We foster understanding, promotion of healing and stop the witch-hunting of sex offenders that causes folks to isolate, which furthers the cycles of abuse.

Society in general, buried in hatred, is unaware of what is happening in the name of public safety. The hysteria caused by misinformation about sex offenders is fueling vigilantism, harassment, protests, media frenzy, and the feel-good legislation. This drives the untreated sex offender underground into deeper isolation and triggers cycles of abuse.

Society feels it should, divide and isolate themselves from sex offenders. However, that act perpetuates the abuse cycle. Many psychiatrists and other professionals have recognized this. So our deeper purpose is to show society the errors caused by misinformation, and to integrate sex offenders into mainstream society, rather than isolate them to a place where sex abuses occur.

We are a "Human Rights" Advocacy website. Advocating for the LifeAfter offender and their "Zones of Associations," family, friends, associates, and many others who through life's circumstances cross paths with former offenders. Registries, community notification laws and other laws affect them as well.
