Meet Christopher Thomas Lynch of Atlanta.
Lynch performs as a drag queen, so he’s obviously OUT of the closet, but apparently he was trafficking in minors and hiding little boys IN the closet. 😯
Crazy thing is… it was Lynch’s s big mouth that got him caught!
Playing the hero led to the arrest of the Atlanta drag personality, who appeared on television claiming he helped authorities nab his roommate for human trafficking.
Upon seeing him on TV, a minor victim identified Lynch to authorities as one of his captors.
Details PLUS video of Lynch’s news appearance below:
Lynch’s roommate, Steven Donald Lemery, 35, was the story of the moment earlier this month when he was arrested and charged with five counts of aggravated child molestation, two counts of human trafficking, child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes and pandering by compulsion.
Lemery, is a male stripper who danced under the name “Steven Lang” at B.J. Rooster’s on Cheshire Bridge Road. He was targeted by investigators in January after another young victim from Alabama alerted authorities.
“Most of the victims were runaways or easy targets,” explained Chief Deputy Sheriff Stan Copeland of the Douglas County Sheriff’s office, adding that the suspects used social networking sites to lure potential victims.
“They would put the kids in a dependent situation. If they wanted to leave, they’d have to perform sexual favors.”
Lynch was arrested and charged with human trafficking of a minor for sexual servitude, two counts of sexual exploitation of a child, pandering by compulsion and possession of drug related objects after a victim came forward after seeing Lynch speaking about Lemry’s arrest on WAGA-TV’s news coverage:
Deputies have identified victims in Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina. The trafficking scheme allegedly dates back at least two to three years.
Several other people lived at the suspects’ home off Chapel Hill Road in Douglasville, including three minor children, but they apparently were not abused by either Lemery or Lynch, Copeland said.
Lynch and Lemeryare being both held without bond in the Douglas County Jail.
