1:34 am
of the brain does 0 than previously on. but once a week, jack always said that he did go to my left, your house, and i'll hold them too, banding young me. how did you get me brought up? so we had this camp out to get to know every one. and we went out there that night . he came and lay down with his feet at my head. he reached from a bell, started trying to unbuckle my pants. i'm just holding no. so i'm not into that. so i think my dad went to the chief place. we wanted a public admission of guilt. he was acquitted of all towards the boy scouts became response more than a minute. they knew what and who jack was. he shouldn't have been involved in scouting at all. he won that trial and went back to same away
1:35 am
a i wish my father had made a stand for me. my dog thought it was my understanding. i was always just asking for something that i had done wrong or fail to do like b. s until he was harming beating me. was it? it wasn't making me better the equation, the attention that my father a jack gave me emotionally. well, he always always told that he loved one before you know, he became a one
1:36 am
day or had happened as a gradual. it was over time, it was a beer. and it was a lady in the house. a soul loves you. you don't appreciate that anybody does for you. let me allow you to rush up there. you. so jack was have a super said, you do whatever he tells you a amy,
1:37 am
thanks to me to hear my dad say you did what he killed judy do you should appreciate what he's feeling good. i just don't want to be proud of where you go with he started molest and hayes when he was 10 years old. and i think that he had that kind of influence over him. police detective charles packet moved to moon oak in the late ninety's. it wasn't long for jack walls cute was attention 3 weeks after being there and long. oh, you know, i end up with this case of this, this the sexual abuses. it's hard to say that that i've had a case come up like this one in my career. how many boys do you think walls ended up abusing? some were in the neighborhood of 50. how many boys kelsey think you interviewed?
1:38 am
i said over 50, my victim witness coordinator said it was closer to a 100 that we knew about how could that stay secret for so long and such a small place the, the children, the young men told me they were afraid of the same because of their power, wealth, and influence. i think that's the key word is influence that he had on kids. i think that that is the key word of this whole thing. i know my father, black me so or did you know i had a really not me down a job hold where you maybe
1:39 am
a jag indicate a sexual abuse and so there was no winning situation. mm. you know, in a town of 4000 people, 50 boys as a lot of boys house not know if something happened to me, would i tell somebody else about it? probably not. not it's 10 years old, or 15 years old. am i going to say something probably not. and do you think the boy scouts as an organization? how would you describe their level of, of interest in of transparency and dealing with the jack was case. the boy
1:40 am
scouts gave me nothing. i had requested information from the boy scouts myself. they never got back with me. i left a message on their phone, telling them what, who i was, what i was doing and they still didn't call me back. i joined the scouts of the child. i was asked like millions of others across america to commit to the scout law. a series of character traits said to define the good scout. among them. trustworthiness, loyalty, obedience. these paintings by artist norman rockwell came to define that ideal image of the american boy scout. an image i grew up with an image of the boy scouts as incorruptible, synonymous,
1:41 am
an american culture with unimpeachable honesty and innocence. the boy scouts are in the business of selling a, an image of wholesomeness. safety, trustworthiness. the scout code attorney tim cars not as representing men who claim to been abused as children by jack walls together. they are taking the boy scouts of america to court for what they say is its responsibility and that abuse in many of our files. we see these perpetrators had a history that was known to the boy scouts. for decades. walls was one of them. but we see this over and over and over again. for more than a century, the boy scouts of america have kept a growing list of files with the names of thousands of scouting volunteers. and staff accused a child sexual abuse including jack walls. but
1:42 am
that information has not always been shared with authorities. if it were to be publicly revealed, that they had this dirty little secret that wasn't actually little at all, but was massive. what would that do to the faith and confidence of parents who are considering whether to entrust their boys to the care of this system because there's secrets that they had a washer and the name of the boy scouts of america. so michael johnson was the director of youth protection at the boy scouts of america for more than a decade. if you look at it, the national headquarters professional talking about the very top, their interest, a line war with perpetrator scoutmasters, than they do with the victims and survivors on the lawsuit. the boy scouts have said that when they keep the information in their files confidential,
1:43 am
it is to protect the privacy of victims. witnesses and the falsely accused. the problem when any institution has that power or ability to investigate its own and maintain records on its own, tell me the institution with a has worked up to help victims of sexual des, secrecy surrounding the and eligible volunteer falls benefits, no one except for the perpetrator. and those like the boy scouts of america that has interests, probably financial interest, civil interests, and that information not getting out. it was a machine that reinforced the code of secrecy, the code of silence. and that was absolutely not to protect the children. it was to protect the organization. the boy scouts is in fact the perfect petri dish for pet ophelia. the child is in a place where there are not other adults that they can call out to i and
1:44 am
they are intimidated by the fact that this organization is so important. it's so valuable to the creation of character that nobody would believe them if they spoke out against the scoutmaster that sexually assaulting them me. me the, the depth of his depravity was hard to imagine. it was in the military where i think he home some of his skills that he tried to teach scouts he had a munition and took that taught him to shoot, taught them to evade light sensors outside so they could start stalking people they didn't like or people did that,
1:45 am
jack told him to me he did ask me to go on to recall. it's written on it. these are the people who haven't been paying their route to couple it or when he would put me to walk in the morning. take me to drop me off, don't walk and have little scroll all dripping to see films and this man who chose to remain anonymous claims he was sexually abused by his scout master . jack was a decade before the duck. open trial rears to grow. words grew, which oh sure, sure. beaver dams were going. the boy that was over for
1:46 am
2 years, expansion for sure. brooklyn 14 usual form george played head gangs with the kids. with a young man. you know, i'm going to give you a call. i'm going to keep you pornographic literature. i'm your friend. i'm on teach you to hot a. you know, i wanna teach you about sex. and then i'm gonna teach you to kill what, what did you hear about the bonnie cut my brake lines fight me, kill my dad. anything to silence us and like us go away. and he encouraged them to come after you. i'm sure. have
1:47 am
stocks? pretty much admitted it. the check put a bounty on you. yeah. yeah, he wanted us to follow cletus hogan, which is those father and he all he had this plan oak me away now. oh, he wanted us to carry cletus a. i'm going to call gas on him and when he wanted to light another fire washing bonded down, they were told to kill doug and his dad by jack walls, but they never did. and but they were supposed to do it. did you ever feel threatened? oh yes. oh yeah, i got threatened. oh yes, but i didn't. i don't know to send a letter. will letter say something about my office was sitting right by
1:48 am
a window. something about sitting by that window. i wouldn't sit by that window so much. charles peck, he received his threats as he was investigating the scope of the abuse committed by chuck walls. i imagine that must been a shocking moment when your look in these cases. you find out one of the boys is heath stocks. are you like? what does that name sound familiar where you are expecting him to be involved in this? yes, but i had, i waited till at the end to go down to the interview. he because i knew that whatever he said is going to be tainted by the fact of the 3 murders. the night in january. do you guys have been to dinner?
1:49 am
i think we went to a buffet in jacksonville and had a lovely time heath was the person that he had been when he was at his best. he was the ideal young man to be a was personable. he laughed he that but he came in, he visited, he said, i got to go back to class or got to do something and he went, had left and was just the nicest. most players it in. if you had a final memory, that's what you'd want to have with him. a relative. and then 2 o'clock in the morning they came and banged on the door, woke me up and said, joe barber and heather have been shot. 3 of them have been shot worse. i think he might have told us he was going back to ark adelphia that night. and so
1:50 am
i didn't, i may, we may have even said, does he's know the next thing i remember is being at the court house and them tell us that they had arrested. he's sorry, this is a free call from state an inmate at a security unit. hey, josh, can you tell me about what happened in january 9? 197? i've been to college. i had been home for several months at that point, and i been looking for a job. i had been able to buy war. so mom dad told jack over a name and encouraged me, and of course a long
1:51 am
time after that, my sister i was dying and then they started share. i can. and then mom came home. how did you tell your mom and sister? do you remember the actual words you use especially molesting and i don't know what a to you and i think it was sharing them and nothing happening. a relation that i like to lose him. only source of affection, acclimation, and attention. now we're getting a so shameful to,
1:52 am
to make that mission what, that's what drove me to this house and make sure that i hold my mom and how did he react to that? it was most angry. i never saving very angry, very racial, very amusing, verbally. i told me that as a trade in that i had violated the sacred that he lovely like and so, and you know, with all that i would ever be someone will do something like that. so he told me it was. so was the problem was cause this problem, i need to fix the problem. and i was like, it always told us we have all new case, all the killer. now i know he used that logic was the moment
1:53 am
you the same logic with my family. and so i lived and i didn't do what he told me to do. and so he showed up and he made me i came home after going out to eat my grandparents and houses and sat down change jack was at his house and it staged it to look like a robbery combat and it was going to happen. i can either participate and be a part of it, or i can die. a what happened next? a house, a leave.
1:54 am
to go to get out of the line. i was thinking i was going to help her get out. jack, i'm sitting on the couch. the car of the van. bob, dan, how long do you here? go on the kitchen on the living room, the life now. she starts screaming and she's 4 years ago. my dad turns around a little too late going to school or that the thought to could been bad, and a shock. a get charter calling to make a shot again. i'm standing there and i'll see dad, he's played down. there's law, there's her mom joe,
1:55 am
barbara and other were all killed that night. oh, it will it, is there a good that is willing to feel the pretty baby feel good. oh, there are good for the next day. an interview with police. he never mentions to present to jack walls or the abusive dirt. he confesses to having ransacked out himself and shooting his father. 8th, you shoot, your dad is what happened with your mom and heather? i heard is still here with they get he why you're shooting her a take you to
1:56 am
lose. oh, hired. mm hm. mm hm. mm. he stalks was 20 years old at the time of the murders he serving a sentence of life without parole for killing his parents. and his sister but he now maintains that he killed only his father that another firmer scout abused by jack walls, pulled the trigger on heather and barbara. ah. when you took the job, were you aware of the stocks family murders? yes. you, i knew about the joe in his wife and his inner and heather, anna. but when i found out about all of that, i knew that there was more to it and nobody ever really said why he did.
1:57 am
nobody ever gave a mode of why he did this and i would ask that why did that? and nobody would ever tell me at the time of the stocks murders jack walters abuse of the scouts alone. oak was still secret because while he was in jail and long oak, i called jackins didn't i know? yeah, we're really close. would you go down and talked 8th you thought you're take care of her? yeah. yeah, i did. i and i think he told him that he would help me, i'll take care of it. so he really trusted jack in all situations and obviously was allowed to start with. he did so brainwash heath that he believed that jack loved him and that his father didn't,
1:58 am
that jack would do anything for him. he thought when jack told him to kill his parents and his sister became involved and was also killed, that jack would get him out of jail. i was living in a world that was with mold in my life. i place a organizational discounts to do it for a while to get a set of this a good
