Man cons 2 Ariz. men into thinking he's 12

A 29-year-old convicted sex offender from Oklahoma allegedly conned two Arizona men into believing he was a 12-year-old boy, moving into their home and having an ongoing sexual relationship with them, sheriff's officials in Yavapai County said Friday.
The ruse was discovered Wednesday after one of the men tried to enroll the fake 12 year old in a charter school in Chino Valley, about 90 miles northwest of Phoenix, using the name Casey Price.
School officials became suspicious and called deputies, telling them they thought the guardianship papers and birth certificate presented by a man who said he was the "12 year old's" grandfather appeared to be fake and that "Price" looked much older than 12, said Susan Quayle, a spokeswoman for the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office.
On the top left: Neil Havens Rodreick II, age 29/12 and a two-time convict for lewd behavior with a minor. Booked on failure to register as a convicted sex offender (required in Arizona).
On the top right: Robert James Snow, age 43, another child molester convict (lewd and indecent proposal to minor) booked on failure to register as required.
On the lower left: Lonnie Stiffler, age 61, booked on two counts of forgery (faking the '12-year-old' birth certificate and identification) and hindering prosecution.
On the lower right: Brian J. Nellis, age 34, another child molester convict (lewd molestation) booked on failure to register.
Back to the article:
During interviews with the men, detectives learned that Stiffler and Snow met Rodreick through an Internet chat about two years ago, Quayle said, and they began to trade sexually explicit photos. He convinced them he was "Casey Price" and was only 12.
Stiffler and Show went to Oklahoma and met Rodreick at a hotel, then brought him back to live with them in Arizona and began an ongoing sexual relationship, Quayle said.
Rodreick apparently shaved his body hair and used makeup to keep up his guise as a pre-teen boy, Quayle said. He also dressed as a juvenile and tried to act and talk like a pre-teen.
"He looks young, I would not have guessed that he's almost 30," Quayle said, though she noted he certainly looked much older than 12.
When detectives unraveled the case and told Stiffler and Snow that "Price" was named Rodreick and was in fact 29, Quayle said they became dismayed and angry that they had been "conned."
This is one seriously twisted and demented story. Here's a synopsis:
TweedleDee and TweedleDum here are out of prison from their child molest convictions, go surfing the 'net for another little victim and winds up with Peter Pan, (27 at the time) who pretends to be a 10-year-old boy. FOR TWO YEARS the Peter Pan freak keeps TweedleDee and TweedleDum fooled into thinking that he's a preteen kid who just loves to have sex with guys three times his age, and then GRAMPA SMURF here goes and ruins the whole thing by getting concerned about the little boy's education.
So, it's OKAY with Gramps that Peter Pan is getting tucked into bed vigorously by two convicted perverts every night, but by gum he best not be neglecting that education!!
This has got to be one of the most dysfunctional band of criminals to ever get booked. It's so totally warped that I don't think anybody could have even made this up. They say that truth is stranger than fiction...
Now we see it can be dumber than fiction too.
