Jesse McFadden History

McFadden was due in court Monday for a jury trial related to other sex crimes including child pornography, court documents state. McFadden spent 17 years in prison for a violent rape and grand larceny in 2003 and was released in 2020.

Fox News was able to interview the 2003 rape victim, according to the column: “The 2003 survivor told Fox News Digital Tuesday that he held a knife to her throat in her dad’s mobile home when she was 16, and he was 19. He tied her up with her dad’s belts and stuffed her mouth full of socks to gag her. He threatened to kill her and her family, she said, and ordered her to throw their clothes in the washing machine to hide the evidence.”

The 2003 victim continued: “Those kids did deserve this, and if you’re going after all these small kids, you’re a piece of crap. And then you take your life? We lost six people yesterday, not seven,” referring to Jesse McFadden as being the seventh dead person discovered.

The Discovered Victims

The victims recovered were identified as Holly McFadden, 35 (Wife of Jesse), Holly’s three children, a 17, 15 and 13 year-old, and the two missing teen girls, Webster and Brewer. Jesse McFadden was also found with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. All the other victims were also found shot in the head, some multiple times.
