That's just sad and wrong.

So the grandparents must have been gay, right? No? Oh. hmm.

They were pedophiles, and stupid ones to begin with. Taking pictures? All I know is that must have been an interesting trip to the Fotomat.

At least the old perve can't lie his way out it.

central FL is a secret governmental test laboratory designed to produce dysfunctional mutants for daytime talk shows and horrifying wire stories.

Is it common for a wife to play along with her husband's pedophilia? That's fucked on so many levels.

@6 - you say that as if a woman is inherently incapable of committing such an act herself. You don't really believe that, do you? (Though if she was alive, I suspect her lawyer would be arguing just that.)

What about Karla? She was a victim!

Florida- where all the shit settles at the bottom.

If this is as reported, it's terrible. (That it happened, not that Grandpa Touchy was arrested.)

Without better descriptions of what the photos depict, I wonder if this isn't misinterpretation of something innocent.

I'm not saying it *is* something innocent, only that it's hard to tell without some more information. We're such a touchy and paranoid culture regarding children and sex that I can't help but wonder.

Of course, if this is as it seems, Grandpa should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, etc., etc.

One of the investigators described the photos as "one of the most sickening things he has ever seen" and the grandfather has been charged with capital sexual battery of a child, so I don't think we're talking about some misconstrued happy-bathtime photos, unfortunately...

Obviously a fine, upstanding family.
Molesty grandpa is 58? And the granddaughter is now an adult? At minimum that puts the mom somewhere around late-30s...that's some early child-birthin' right there.
You just know someone did a number on the mom at some point, too.
