Police Find Corey Feldman's 1993 Recordings Naming Pedophiles: Arrests to Follow
Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office locate tapes when he named child abusers in statute
The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that they have located the lost interview recordings from 1993 when Corey Feldman reported the pedophiles who abused him, meaning police can now prosecute his abusers.
Since Feldman launched his Truth Campaign to expose the Hollywood pedophile ring that sexually abused himself and his friends as children, one of the main flaws preventing criminal prosecution has been that the crimes have exceeded the Statute of Limitations.
In California, the Statute of Limitations gives victims of sexual abuse just ten years to report a crime to the police, and once this timeframe has ended, or it's outside of statute, the crime can no longer be prosecuted.
As is the situation with a lot of cases of child abuse, the victims are often too afraid to tell anyone after the incident, and it's only when they reach adulthood that they report the offense, by which time it's too late.
Corey Feldman argued that he did, in fact, give the names to the police in 1993, within the statute, while they were interviewing him as part of their investigations into Michael Jackson, but, he said, they weren't interested at the time, and the recordings mysteriously went missing, until now.
The former child actor claimed in October that he had given the names of sexual predators in Hollywood during their investigation into Michael Jackson's molestation charges but the Sheriff’s Office denied those claims, saying they had no records of Feldman revealing such information.
Now, in an official statement, they say they have located copies of the recordings that were made with the Statute of Limitations.
The recordings have now been handed over the Los Angeles Police Department, who will be relaunching their investigation into the elite pedophile ring, with arrests expected to follow shortly.
Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office public information officer Kelly Hoover told Fox News on Tuesday night in an emailed statement:
"Following the recent inquiries into the Sheriff’s Office interview of Mr. Feldman in 1993, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office conducted an additional review for any stored items remaining from the Michael Jackson investigation.
"In a container which included the original reports from the investigation, the Sheriff’s Office located some detective's working copies of audio recordings made during the investigation.
"A copy of Mr. Feldman’s interview was located.
"The recording is being turned over to the Los Angeles Police Department.
"Due to the fact that this case involves the alleged sexual abuse of a child, we are unable to comment further and any documentation or evidence related to this case is exempt from release."

Fox News had originally reached out to the Sheriff’s Office in October at which time they responded, “We are aware of the statements that Mr. Feldman is making regarding an investigation in 1993.
"Our records do not indicate that he named any suspects."
Feldman, 46, had claimed in a Today show interview with Matt Lauer that he “sat down and I gave them names.
"They're on record. They have all this information."
The "Stand By Me" star has launched a campaign to raise $10 million in order to make a movie about sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry.
