A self-described vampire in Pennsylvania faces numerous charges after he allegedly participated in some downright shocking behavior — and where he did it is just as shocking. CBS News reports that 21-year-old Jonathan Davis may have violated an untold number of young teenage girls behind the walls of a church in Vandergrift. Actually, “violated” is a bit of an understatement, according to numerous reports.
Officer Joseph Gray with the Vandergift Police Department told reporters that the 21-year-old man had violent sexual contact with the teens, but none of them were unwilling participants.
“There were some ritualistic issues from the summer and fall of last year, some blood-letting where victims (juveniles) cut their own wrists, and Davis would take their blood in his mouth and vice versa. None of the victims were forced into doing anything, and Davis has been fully co-operating in the on-going investigation.”
The “vampire” is accused of bringing teenage girls as young as 14 years old into the St. Gertrude Parish late at night. As officer Gray told reporters, the 21-year-old man would have the teens cut themselves, or he would cut them, before suckling on the blood that ran from their wounds. He would encourage them to do the same from them before calling them his “children.”
According to Death and Taxes, all but one teen would leave after this ritual. This was the teen he allegedly had sexual contact with — a 14-year-old girl. The details are rather graphic, but after the bloodletting the two had sexual intercourse in the Catholic church while they both bled on one another.
As if being accused of sex with a minor wasn’t bad enough, the Pennsylvania vampire reportedly tried to coerce a witness into lying, and did so publicly on Facebook. A transcript of the discussion has been shared in the media.
Davis: “You were the last one with [Victim] and I, so you’re the only one that can say I left the same time as you.”
Witness: “[You] didn’t dude.”
Davis: “But you’re the only one that can say I did and get me out of this mess.”
Jonathan Davis has been charged with corruption of minors, indecent assault, and statutory sexual assault. All of these charges could result in lengthy prison sentences, to say the least. He could also end up being made to register as a sex offender, which is a mark that could stick with him for the rest of his life.
