When I was about 6 or 7, we had this neighbor that would regularly try to invite me over for cake and candy, or to play with the dogs he owned. My parents didn’t trust him, so of course, invites were declined. Years later, we learned that he regularly raped his 12 year old stepdaughter and got her pregnant. When he went to trial, it was revealed that there were four other young girls in his past that he had abused.
The guy used to decorate his house like a haunted mansion every Halloween, and kids would go crazy for it. I’m so glad that my parents wouldn’t allow me to go there.
