Former camp counselor and gym teacher sexually abused ONE HUNDRED children as disturbing personnel records suggest authorities knew and preferred to 'let sleeping dogs lie'
- William Bricker arrested in September - decades after alleged assaults
- Charged with immoral and indecent acts against two boys and one girl
- Attacks reportedly occurred at Wyoming camp in 1962, 1968 and 1985
- But now, newly-found memo has suggested there may be 100 victims
- Released by school district, it says: 'Could have 100 children abused'
- Bricker, now 94, 'has heart failure and breathes through oxygen tank'
- He must undergo competency evaluation before an extradition hearing
A 94-year-old former camp counselor and gym teacher who is charged with multiple sex crimes against children may have abused a staggering 100 youngsters, a new memo has suggested.
William Bricker was arrested at his retirement community, the Tendercare Health and Rehab Center in Garfield Township, Wyoming, in September after allegedly abusing two boys and one girl.
He was later charged with immoral and indecent acts with a child over the alleged sexual assaults, two of which reportedly occurred against two boys at Teton Valley Ranch Camp in 1962 and '85.
The third apparent attack involved a 14-year-old girl who was reportedly kissed and fondled by Bricker during an overnight camping trip at Grand Teton National Park in 1968.
After he was charged, Bricker's former employer, Winnetka District 36, released hundreds of pages of his personnel records, some indicating school officials knew of his alleged crimes decades ago.
But now, a handwritten page dated 1995 - a decade after Bricker left his job at District 36's Hubbard Woods School - has been unearthed that suggests there may have been up to 100 victims.
The memo, written during the tenure of then-Superintendent Rebecca van der Bogert, includes the shocking phrase: 'Could have 100 children abused', according to the Chicago Tribune.
It also features references to the Cook County state's attorney and school lawyers, as well as phrases that apparently read: 'Letting sleeping dogs lie may be more helpful' and 'no proof'.
Although the page appears to describe the Winnetka school district's reaction to the allegations made against Bricker, it remains unclear who wrote the memo, who it was written for, nor why it was written.
'We are not in a position to comment on or interpret documents prepared by others almost 20 years ago,' district attorney, Michael Loizzi, told the newspaper.
The charges stem from information investigators received in February about abuse at the Teton Valley Ranch Camp, according to an affidavit filed in Teton County Circuit Court.
One former scout claimed he was molested aged 13 by Bricker in a bunk-style cabin at the camp in 1962, adding that he had initially brought the alleged assault up in the late 1960s.
He thought he 'had communicated' to an assistant Boy Scouts leader at the time who he knew about the accusations and had been 'hurt', the affidavit said.
The man, now aged 65, told investigators 'he never heard the Boy Scouts ... did anything about the accusation at that time,' it added.
But Boy Scouts of America spokesman, Deron Smith, argued that the group was not aware of the allegations against Bricker until earlier this year.
Ex-Christian radio host gets 40 years for raping boy, 11, in a motel two weeks after his wedding - as details emerge of child mannequin he kept for sexual kidnapping fantasies
- John Balyo, 36, of Caledonia, Michigan, was arrested in June as part of a sex trafficking ring bust
- Police found Balyo's lock-up where he stashed child porn and practised a sexual kidnapping fantasy with a child-sized mannequin
- He photographed the rape of 11-year-old boy at a Kalamazoo County hotel in May - two weeks after his wedding
A former Christian radio host was called a 'wolf in sheep's clothing' on Thursday as he was sentenced to 40 years for raping an 11-year-old boy.
John Balyo, 36, of Caledonia, Michigan, was arrested in a June as part of a sex trafficking ring bust, and in September, pleaded guilty to sexually abusing the child in a hotel room.
At the sentencing hearing, Judge Robert Holmes Bell said it was difficult to reconcile Balyo's public image as a newlywed expectant father, who was a camp counselor and missionary volunteer, with that of the sadistic pedophile which came to light in the police investigation.
Police found Balyo's lock-up where he stashed child pornography and practised a sexual kidnapping fantasy with a child-sized mannequin.
According to court records, reported by freep.com, Balyo also kept naked photos of victims, children's obituaries and articles on the infamous BTK (Bind, Torture, Kill) serial killer.
The Christian DJ also kept news articles about the death, torture and sexual abuse of children.
A piece of notebook paper was found which contained boys' names and phrases like swimming, photo shoot, sleeping/napping, strapped down, boy/cub scout, headlock, abuse and swim lessons.
He also had a bondage kit of rolls of duct tape, four pairs of handcuffs, parachute cord, nylon rope, 107 zip ties, a set of rubber gloves, two lengths of 18-inch chain and a padlock.
The 36-year-old raped the 11-year-old boy in a Battle Creek motel in May - two weeks after his wedding.
In August, Balyo pleaded guilty to photographing sex acts with the 11-year-old in May after paying him, then handcuffing the child to a bed.
In a sentencing statement, Assistant U.S. Attorney Tessa K. Hessmiller wrote: 'No one ever reported any misgivings or indiscretions about Balyo. But he was a wolf in sheep's clothing.
'But underneath the surface, he was feeding a morbid and sadistic fascination with children, creating and accumulating pedophilic materials, rehearsing a sexual kidnapping fantasy with a gun and a child-sized mannequin and meeting clandestinely in hotel rooms with young boys in bondage.
'Balyo's three meetings with (victim 1) resulted in sexual exploitation and degradation of a child in the most depraved ways.'
Balyo, a host at WCSG, was arrested in June at the Big Ticket Christian music festival in Gaylord, Michigan.
He admitted at the time that he had a rented storage unit where he kept a 'bondage kit', a federal spokesman confirmed to MailOnline. Handcuffs and other items were found in a suitcase after police searched a storage unit in Plainfield Township.
Balyo paid another man, 41-year-old Ronald Moser, to arrange a sex session with a minor for him through a child sex trafficking website he ran.
According to Mlive.com, in a photo album posted online by Moser, there were ten images of a young boy lying face down on a bed.
His hands and feet were bound and he was wearing only underwear, which had been rolled up to show his buttocks, according to a federal agent.
The albums had titles such as 'very cute boy,' and 'sexy boys', police said.
The FBI said Moser put images online and planned to trade in child porn. It is alleged that Moser ran a website providing sex with underage boys for money.
The investigation into the alleged pedophiles has involved multiple agencies as part of a larger 'Operation Predator'.
