In Riverside County, the story of the founder of the Sheriff’s Activity League who was a serial child molester is exploding. An investigator came forward to the local media.
Sniff’s response was horrific politically.
The facts of the case are disturbing, former Master Investigator Kevin Duffy was molesting children in the Sheriff’s Activity League for years. It came apart on him in 2008 and the investigators were starting to piece together details of his double life. They had a total of 7 confirmed victims with as many as 250 more children defined as high risk.
With the walls closing in on him Kevin Duffy committed suicide. Note, if you watch the video, you learn that Duffy was not arrested and attempted suicide twice before actually killing himself. It is also clear that the second floor at the time was hoping he’d off himself ostensibly to be able to close the thing down and make it go away.
The details of this case are critical –See Stan Sniff’s response:
Sniff claims 2 confirmed victims, there were 7.
Sniff claims the case was closed properly, it was not. It currently shows as Open/Suspended which is why no one can do a “Freedom of Information Act” to get the file. THIS IS KEY
Sniff claims the case was closed properly, yet the investigators at the time were ORDERED to end the investigation. THIS IS ALSO KEY
Sniff’s response indicates he is quite upset about this revelation and it shows in the press release where he attacks the private investigator. The problem for Sniff is that the retired people and people on active duty that worked this case are still angry about being ordered off of it and still remember it. I’ve communicated with more than one person with direct knowledge of this case.
For 9 years Stan Sniff has been quiet about this case, but has been forced to double down on the cover-up. More will be revealed, including details of actual lawsuits that followed in 2009, including what county staff and admin staff did to try and keep the lid on it. (Yes, Sniff lied about that as well in his press release)
Stan Sniff has himself a major-league issue that he has made worse with a lie-infested 10PM press release.
Note: As of this post, the Riverside Press-Enterprise has written nothing about this story, continuing their clear pattern of being in the bag for the corrupt Sheriff.
