In 2007, Greg's 23 month old Grandson was killed. At that point, he found a need to write about his family, crime, and local issues.

In The News Again

The small community of Lebanon, Missouri has again reached national news. It's not good news either. This is the same community that we just moved from and where Jonathan was killed. There has been a lot of serious crimes done in and around Lebanon. For a population around 14,000, I am really starting to wonder if the devil himself doesn't live in Lebanon, Missouri.

The F.B.I. and law enforcement rounded up five men just this past week who had been involved for years in a very sick and twisted crime.

Starting in 2002, Edward Bagley (43) from Lebanon coerced a young, mentally deficient woman into his home and forced her to be a sex slave. He had a thing for violence, so he started filming tortury he induced on her.

Another Lebanon man became involved; Michael Stokes(62). He paid Bagley so that he too could torture this girl.

Bagley actually advertised on-line that he had a girl to use in the "sex slave" business. Three other men became involved and all have been arrested. They are Dennis Henry, 50, of Wheatland, Mo, James Noel, 44, of Springfield,Mo, and Bradley Cook, 31, of St. Louis,Mo.

Over the years these men did all kinds of terrible things to this girl. Bagley forced her to get tattoos of a bar-code, the letter S on her back depicting slave, and the Chinese sign for slave on her ankle. They even transported her to other States in payment to be used as a sex slave/ torture victim.

Why?? Why would men do such a thing? Why is there so much evil happening in and around Lebanon, Missouri?

I sometimes wonder if this community has somewhat brought these crimes on itself. By letting people off easy on other crimes and turning their head the other way.

I once predicted that crime would get worse in Lebanon. By not punishing criminals to the fullest extent and being "soft", has Laclede county, Missouri created a demon?

I hope that these five men never see a city street again. In my opinion they should be tortured as they tortured.

At least we don't have to rely on Laclede county to prosecute, the Feds have this one!

      These instruments of evil are off the streets. The devil who pulled their strings is still at large. Wake up church. It's time for battle! Keep sounding the alarm froggy! I hear the call.

      I don't live to far from there and I had no idea that this was going on. So focused on National news I miss what's happening right next door. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
