Wikisposure Identified Jon Savarino Schillaci

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

Here's the face that the FBI chose to make the poster boy for its efforts to crack down on child molesters

Back in 1989, Schillaci was a 17-year-old sometime-transvestite who haunted Montrose and was just getting into a world that would land him among the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives.

After serving ten years in prison for molesting two 11 year old boys, recording it, then trying to sell it, he groomed a family into trusting him, that he was reformed, that he wanted another chance at life. They took him in and in less than two months he had molested their 5 year old son multiple times. Dylan Thomas, the webmaster of BoyChat.

By accident, the Wikisposure Project came across Jon Schillaci aka Dylan Thomas hiding in Mexico

It wasn't federal agents or police, but an Internet watchdog group that apparently uncovered the vital link in catching a convicted pedophile who was hiding in Mexico, but got his start in Houston.

Authorities were looking for Jon Schillaci, who was on the FBI's list of the 10 most-wanted fugitives, but a break came when the Wikisposure Project discovered his identity and Internet-connection address while researching a mysterious Webmaster for a site catering to pedophiles.

"We go after the leaders, we go after everybody," said Xavier Von Erck, director of operations for the project.

Wikisposure, which is not affiliated with the Wikipedia online encyclopedia, builds databases on pedophile activists.

The group accidentally came across Schillaci as it sought to uncover the identity of someone using the name Dylan Thomas to operate a pedophile Web site and radio show.

"When we started out, we had no intention of catching an FBI Top Ten Most Wanted guy," Erck said, noting Dylan Thomas seemed too brazen, arrogant and careless to be in hiding.

He said he could hardly believe no one knew Dylan Thomas and Schillaci were the same person.

And what about the boys he originally went to prison for? What do they think about this? Dylan wrote many times about it. I wonder if their story matches his..........

Jon Savarino Schillaci's victims here included twin brothers who were sexually assaulted, videotaped, humiliated and threatened.

"I think about it every day, and I won't lie about it, he took advantage of 11-year-old boys," said one of the men, now a father. "I'd tell him to his face: Jon, you are wrong for what you did. I hope you burn in hell."

Nah, I didn't think so.
