A Lamoni man is one of five men from the same family who’ve been arrested and charged with sex crimes against children.
David Mohler of Lamoni, his father and three brothers were arrested Tuesday in Missouri. The 26-year-old daughter of one of the men approached authorities in mid-August with a series of serious allegations. The men are charged with several felonies, including rape of a child less than 12 years old and bestiality.
A rural property east of Kansas City is being searched. Authorities say they are looking for a body or bodies, as well as glass jars. The victims have told authorities they wrote notes about what was happening to them and buried them in glass jars on that property.
