Neighborhood Sex Offender in Iowa Found Under Child’s Bed

Well, today is just a day for horrifying news. Only moments ago, we learned about the plane whose wing fell off. Now this out of Iowa.

Authorities investigating a disturbance call found a registered sex offender hiding under a child’s bed. Ho hum. Ho hum, indeed.

[Julien Martell] Skipper was found April 19 hiding at a neighbor’s apartment as police investigated a disturbance call. He was arrested at the time and charged with possession with intent to deliver and a parole violation.

Police say Skipper failed to notify authorities he had been living in the neighbor’s apartment since early March. He also didn’t disclose that two children ages 5 and 10 lived in the apartment.

Skipper was convicted in 2007 for having sex with a 14-year-old girl.

That’s just… creepy
