HTH: Alleged Molester's wife is anti-Geothermal Activist

“I talked to a couple of our residents in Leilani and they all have a feeling of shock,” Al Dettweiler, the lower Puna subdivision’s community association president, said early Wednesday evening. “They can’t believe it, disbelief, because they know the family well, and the family’s been a leader in the community for the last six or eight years since they’ve been here.

“And his wife, Petra, she’s been heavily involved with the geothermal issue, the health studies, and she’s been on the Leilani board of directors. So she’s been a very active person, along with owning the bed-and-breakfast. … She’s out there every day with the people, so they know her, even more than Mr. Tucker.”

Suspected Child Sexual Abuser Sought by Honolulu FBI

News Release from FBI Honolulu October 09, 2012

Special Agent Tom Simon (808) 566-4300

Vida G. Bottom, Special Agent in Charge of the Honolulu Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), is seeking the public’s help in providing information that may identify an unknown male suspected of child sexual exploitation, possibly on Hawaii’s Big Island. A photograph and informational poster depicting the suspect are being disseminated to the public.

The suspect first came to the FBI’s attention in 2010 when a series of photographs surfaced on the Internet depicting the suspect apparently engaging in graphic sex acts with two children: a 4-year-old girl and 9-year-old boy (approximate ages). These photos were circulated widely among various illegal Internet forums for the sharing of child pornography.

Investigators for the FBI and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children enhanced one of the photos to develop an image of what appears to be a 2008 Hawaiian Telcom phone book for Hawaii’s Big Island in the background. This image led investigators to believe that the photos were taken between 2008 and 2010. A desktop computer in the background of another photo leads investigators to conclude that the photo was likely not taken in a hotel room. There are no other details linking the suspect to Hawaii. His identity and current whereabouts are unknown.

The suspect appears to be a white male in his 40s with brown-gray hair and blue eyes. Anyone with information to provide should contact the local FBI office. The public is reminded that no charges have been filed in this case, and the pictured suspect is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
