In the United States, there are public records to locate criminals with a history of sexual crimes. They are provided by the Department of Justice and a search by area is enough to frequently come across a large list, with name, address and details about the crime committed by the subject. In that database was Jesse McFadden, a 39-year-old man convicted in 2003 of first-degree rape. Still, he frequently spent time with teenagers after serving 17 years in prison. On Sunday he was found dead along with two missing girls ages 16 and 14 and four other people in a rural Oklahoma home. Authorities say they haven't seen anything like it in years.
The father of one of them, Brittany Brewer, 16, explained that his daughter and the other deceased, Ivy Webster, shared several weekends with the rapist and that there had been no incident. He was unaware of the criminal history of McFadden, an ex-convict who was being investigated for sexual abuse of a minor and possession of child pornography while he was still incarcerated.
On Monday, the Okmulgee County Sheriff's Office issued a warrant after Ivy Webster's family reported that she had not returned home. "She went with a friend on Saturday to the McAlester area and she was due back at 5pm yesterday," the alert said. They later added Brittany to the list, warning that she could be with McFadden.
They were last seen Monday at 1:22 p.m. in Henryetta, a town about 50 miles south of Tulsa, "possibly riding in a white Chevy Avalanche with Jesse McFadden." The search ceased when they went to search the attacker's house. There they found the seven bodies, still without details on how they died or if weapons were found in the house.
The Police have not confirmed the names of the victims either, but they believe they have found "the missing persons", in relation to the adolescents. Brittany's father, Nathan, confirmed to local media that his daughter is one of the seven bodies. So did Janette Mayo, mother of 35-year-old Holly Guess, who had applied for a license in 2022 to marry McFadden. Her three grandchildren, Rylee Elizabeth Allen, 17, Michael James Mayo, 15, and Tiffany Dore Guess, 13, are the other victims, according to her testimony.
The Henryetta school district sent a statement confirming that "several" of its students are among the deceased and regretted the tragedy. "Our hearts ache and we have considered what is best for our students in the coming days," they said after postponing traditional end-of-year graduation ceremonies.
