The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office previously denied such audio existed
Audio has reportedly been found of Corey Feldman giving police names of alleged Hollywood paedophiles back in 1993.
Former child star Feldman has claimed that he was abused during the early years of his career and recently launched a crowdfunding campaign to “expose” an alleged Hollywood paedophile ring.
In October, Feldman claimed that he had given names of alleged Hollywood sexual predators to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office in 1993 during an investigation into molestation charges against Michael Jackson.
The Sheriff’s Office initially denied Feldman’s claims but have now confirmed they have located the audio of what Feldman was referring to.
Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office public information officer Kelly Hoover told Fox News: “Following the recent inquiries into the Sheriff’s Office interview of Mr. Feldman in 1993, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office conducted an additional review for any stored items remaining from the Michael Jackson investigation. In a container which included the original reports from the investigation, the Sheriff’s Office located some detective working copies of audio recordings made during the investigation. A copy of Mr. Feldman’s interview was located.”
“The recording is being turned over to the Los Angeles Police Department,” the statement added. “Due to the fact that this case involves the alleged sexual abuse of a child, we are unable to comment further and any documentation or evidence related to this case is exempt from release.”
The LAPD briefly opened an investigation into Feldman’s Hollywood paedophile ring claims in November, but dropped it just days later. It is not currently known whether the investigation will now be reopened.
