Evil Puppeteer Ronald Brown Wanted to 'Cook' and 'Eat' Children
Ronald Brown, Largo, Florida Puppeteer is accused of planning to kidnap children, specifically toddlers, torture them, rape them, murder them, then cook their body parts on a stove, according to federal documents.
Ronald Brown, 57, a puppeteer, is described in a complaint assembled by the Department of Homeland Security as engaging in conversations of the most graphic and gruesome sort – and, as a warning, certain details that follow in this story are highly disturbing. The report, the result of an international investigation, focuses on Brown’s conversations with another man about fondling, cooking and eating young children.
Federal agents say the evidence they uncovered in Brown's Largo home suggests otherwise.
They say that evidence includes disturbing images of child porn, like pictures of young boys with their hands and feet bound by ropes, and at least one where a child appears to be dead.
Brown,whose Puppets Plus website promises "grins and giggles" for kids -- was reportedly caught in online chat rooms with people the feds were investigating as part of a child pornography ring in Massachusetts.
Transcripts show the two men talked at length about the best way to kill children as young as two years old. They'd then describe in detail how to cut them up, cook them and eat their remains.
The other man, Michael Arnett of Kansas, was also arrested as part of an online child porn sting.
Brown does not appear to have a criminal record, but he was stopped for a 1998 traffic violation in which an officer saw boys' underwear in the front seat, according to WUSA. He told the deputy he used the underwear for dressing his puppets.
According to the Tampa Tribune, Brown is listed as an employee with the Christian Television Network. They declined to comment about Brown’s employment or the situation.
In a search of his home on July 19, cops found a CD full of photographs showing dead children and kids posed in bondage positions, The Weekly Vice reported. Brown also told FBI agents that he wanted to eat a little boy he met at a local church.
Brown started his puppeteer company in 1992, Puppet Plus. On Facebook, Brown brags about performing in schools and malls, even for the Tampa Bay Rays.
