Ashley Dack is accused of committing shocking acts of child sex abuse with and without her boyfriend, and reports indicate that the duo could have been well on their way to escalating their crimes to unthinkable heights. KFOR News 4 reports that the 29-year-old Texas woman has had access to numerous children through babysitting, though she is reportedly a well paid geologist who works for Chevron and Exxon/Mobil.
The details of this case are absolutely upsetting, and may be too disturbing for some readers. Nonetheless, these are the facts in the case that have been uncovered and released by law enforcement in Houston. The New York Daily News reports that a friend of Dack's backed up disturbing text messages that were on her phone after the woman asked him to charge it for her. The same friend told police that Dack had allegedly been boasting about her activities to him.
The content of some of those text messages is shocking, to say the least. The texts also display the possibility that the couple were sexually excited by the idea of kidnapping a child to sadistically rape and torture her. Some of the texts between Ashley Dack and her boyfriend Patrick Schuneman detail a discussion about wishing she could lure a four-year-old girl into her vehicle where she would help Patrick rape the child.
"There is a little girl at lunch with blonde pig tails, kept dancing around on the floor. Wanted you 2 [sic] to be hiding in my car and I could bring her 2 you. Maybe 4 (age of child)."As if it wasn't disturbing enough that these two actively fantasized about child abduction and rape, Ashley Dack reportedly took photos of herself sexually assaulting an 11-month-old baby. She then sent those photos to her boyfriend in the course of a sexually explicit conversation via text.
Both Dack and her boyfriend Patrick Schuneman have been arrested and charged with super aggravated sexual assault of a child and sexual performance by a child. There are also far more details in this horrifying case that have not yet been shared with the public, which indicate that Ashley Dack and her boyfriend had access to several young children through Dack's babysitting activities. It should be noted that both of these individuals are geologists who work in the fuel industry, which means they are both well-paid. Nonetheless, the woman had made herself available as a babysitter for numerous young children. How many victims could there be aside from the ones allegedly confirmed by investigators -- and if they hadn't been caught now, would they have gone through with their fantasies of child abduction?
