48-year-old Chad Laverne Laughlin, of Noel, Missouri, was arrested in Miami, Ohio, when he was caught allegedly making out with a 14-year-old girl at a public library. It turns out that Laughlin was said to have bought the girl a cell phone so he could communicate with the girl on Kik. Her parents had no idea the girl had this phone. The pair reportedly had exchanged explicit pictures of themselves on Kik and had been communicating since the girl was 13. One disturbing message from Laughlin shows how far he was willing to go to be with the girl…
On June 1, Laughlin texted her, “Kitten, I may have found a way, you can even still go to school, but we have to get you a passport… We can emigrate to Israel, you’re 100 percent legal there… 14 is the age of consent.”
Great plan there Captain Pedo. It’s not like you wouldn’t be pursued for international kidnapping. Not to mention the fact the US has had an extradition treaty with Israel since the early 1960s.
However, this story takes an extreme left turn when, while investigating Laughlin, police found that the girl was being pursued by another predator, 25-year-old Dannon Lane Trujillo of Miami. Trujillo was ever so classy when messaging the girl…
“You want to be *** raped at the library. Don’t you?”
What a romantic.
You know, I wonder if the girl messaged Trujillo using the same phone that Laughlin bought her.
While this girl may have made some poor life choices, she is still a victim. A 14-year-old girl can not legally consent to sex anywhere in this country. We can only hope she learns from her mistakes now before her life goes down an even more dangerous path.
