(CBS) TAMPA, Fla. - Florida puppeteer Ronald Brown appeared in federal court Tuesday on charges of child pornography and conspiring to kidnap a child, CBS Tampa reports.
Brown, 57, was arrested Friday after an international investigation conducted by the Department of Homeland Security. A criminal complaint followed Brown's graphic online conversation with another man about kidnapping, sexually abusing, murdering and eating children, CBS Tampa reported.
A search warrant was issued on July 19 for Brown's residence. Homeland Security Investigators seized media including CDs, DVDs, thumb drives, micro disks and VHS tapes that contained several images of naked, bound and seemingly dead children.
Brown staged puppet shows for children. According to CBS Tampa, he told investigators that he helps out in the children's area of the church that he attends, and has weekly gatherings with neighborhood children from the church.

He’s trying to do that “big grin mug shot” thing but it ain’t working.
Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them. [Romans 1:24-32]
It is evil. The guy is a bit strange, every Halloween he makes cotton candy for the
kids in his trailer park.
From the article: “A criminal complaint followed Brown’s graphic online conversation with another man about kidnapping, sexually abusing, murdering and eating children, CBS Tampa reported.”
Eating children? ? ?
Who dug up Jonathon Swift’s “A Modest Proposal”?
Thankyou. Christians should all be proclaiming this because it is so relevant in today’s world.
We have just about all of that now, loud and proud, in the public schools and marching in the streets of America. It’s so sad.
I pretty much suspect all puppeteers, clowns, etc of this type of behavior. There’s a homeless guy that hangs around my neighborhood hocking newspapers, and he keeps a hand puppet in his bag to “entertain” kids that pass by his spot. I fully expect to see him on the sex offender registry sooner or later.
If only they allowed puppeteers to marry, this sort of thing wouldn’t happen...
“Brown staged puppet shows for children. According to CBS Tampa, he told investigators that he helps out in the children’s area of the church that he attends, and has weekly gatherings with neighborhood children from the church.”
Truly terrifying. ...and pictures of seemingly dead children? Horrific is not the word.
Homeland Security Investigators seized media including CDs, DVDs, thumb drives, micro disks and VHS tapes that contained several images of naked, bound and seemingly dead children.
Brown does not appear to have a criminal record, but he was stopped for a 1998 traffic violation in which an officer saw boys’ underwear in the front seat, according to WUSA. He told the deputy he used the underwear for dressing his puppets.
In the complaint, Brown said his conversations about “killing, dismembering and eating” boys were “in the realm of fantasy” and that he had no desire to do anything.
This is absolutely unbelievable. As a grandfather, I am beyond words to express my anger. If there is no hell, nothing, absolutely nothing, makes any sense. If there is any justice, this walking piece of evil needs to be sent where he belongs as soon as possible!!
