A child abduction investigation into a Fauquier County man and former Virginia political candidate has expanded to at least a dozen other states and four other countries with numerous possible additional victims, according to officials with the Fresno County Sheriff’s Department.
Nathan Larson, 40, of Catlett, Virginia, was arrested Dec. 14 on felony charges of kidnapping, child abduction, soliciting child pornography from a minor and meeting a child for the intention of sex. He was arrested at a Denver airport where he was found to be in the company of a missing 12-year-girl from Fresno, California.
Larson twice sought political office in Virginia. He first ran for the House of Delegates 31st District in 2017 as an independent, followed by a brief run for U.S. Congress in 2018. He made headlines at the time for his criminal background and for websites he created espousing misogyny, white supremacy and child pornography.
Fresno County police Sgt. Chad Stokes said on Wednesday that Larson has not been charged with any additional offenses. But he said the investigation has now become “bigger than anticipated” with new investigations being turned over to local jurisdictions in at least a dozen states and criminal inquiries being made by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in other countries, including Canada, England, Ireland and Sweden.
Stokes would not reveal the total number of possible victims identified so far, or what jurisdictions are investigating possible additional crimes. Stokes said that, so far, all the victims are underage.
“We are becoming aware of other victims of similar types of crimes, and those investigations are being turned over to those local jurisdictions,” Stokes said. “We know that he's been in contact with more people than just our victim.”
Stokes added that the victims include both those with whom Larson had direct interactions as well as “unintentional victims” – those of whom Larson had obtained videos or images but may not have had direct contact.
Stokes said Larson fits the profile of an individual that may be “an online sex predator ... advancing to the next step, which is hands-on offenses, kidnapping and the sexual exploitation of children.”
“We're having to go through and identify images and figure out if they're … victims that he actually was communicating with, or if they're just images that he himself may have downloaded or something like that,” Stokes said.
Jailed, Larson awaits transfer to California
Larson is currently being held in Denver County Jail awaiting extradition to Fresno.
After Larson was arrested in mid-December, Fresno police said they learned more about the abduction and the events leading up to it. Larson allegedly flew to Fresno from Virginia and then traveled to the girl’s home.
He allegedly persuaded her to sneak out of her house around 2 a.m. and used a ride share company to pick her up, police said.
Together, they rode to the Fresno Airport. Larson made the girl wear a wig with long hair to alter her appearance. He also told her to act as though she was disabled and unable to speak to ensure she would not converse with anyone at the airport while making their way onto the airplane.
Because of the sophisticated way Larson allegedly groomed the Fresno girl, detectives said at the time that they believed he may have victimized other children.
“Pedophiles and predators find ways to manipulate their victims… He had the girl believing things that weren’t true. It’s all part of the grooming process,” said Lt. Brandon Pursell of the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office. “As a 12-year-old girl, our victim had no way to conceptualize what was happening, or what could have happened, to her.”
Larson is already a convicted felon. He threatened to kill the president of the United States in late 2008. At the time, former President George W. Bush was still in office, but former President Barack Obama had already been elected.Larson was sentenced to 16 months in federal prison.
Larson is also an avowed white supremacist and proponent of pedophilia. He wrote a lengthy manifesto in 2018 outlining some of his beliefs, in which he called Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism, “white supremacist heroes.”
Larson’s website investigated in 2017
Officials with the Virginia State Police and Fauquier County Sheriff’s Department confirmed last week that Larson was previously investigated for possession of child pornography in 2017 by both the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office and the Northern Virginia-Washington DC Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (NOVA-DC ICAC) but was never charged with any crime.
Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said the NOVA-DC ICAC investigation began after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children “forwarded complaints it received concerning Mr. Larson” to the task force during Larson’s 2017 run for Virginia House of Delegates.
Gellar said the investigation was closed after images and posts “found on sites associated with [Larson]” were found to be protected speech under the court’s definitions under Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition, a 2002 U.S. Supreme Court case that determined that parts of the Child Pornography Prevention Act of 1996 violated the First Amendment.
The taskforce ultimately determined that there was no violation of either state or federal criminal code.
“We have no further comment as the case was closed and no charges were placed,” Geller said in an email last week.
The Fauquier Sheriff’s Office also began an investigation into Larson for possession of child pornography in 2017, but the investigation was transferred to the Virginia State Police “due to [Larson’s] running for political office,” according to Fauquier Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. S.L. Lewis.
Lewis said that, during their investigation, detectives determined that “the images portrayed online did not meet Virginia code section to follow any criminal charges.”
“Obviously that type of material, or circumstances, coming into the office is going to be looked into and investigated,” Lewis said. But he said the material “did not meet the threshold” under Virginia state code.
My layman's opinion is that glowies, be they tasked with tackling paedos or terrorists, have bigger targets to deal with than someone who runs a forum. When you consider the number of paedophiles there are in America you realise that someone who runs a forum and hasn't committed any crimes which it would be a slam dunk to prove is relatively low down their list of priorities.how often do these people know about a pedo, terrorist or other and just not bother until they do something major?
Probably. None of their domains (as of writing) has entered redemption period nor have they expired according to the WHOIS entries of Faerie, LoliHunter or Rapey.I wonder if the police shut these websites down, or if Dotty just stopped paying for them.
They went down while we were exiled to the Fediverse on Janurary 10th since Nathan was paying for the servers monthly (apparently it was costing his mother something like $400 per fucking month just to host this shitshow). I meant to post a celebratory 'S to spit' but it completely slipped my mind (which is really going to describe the entirety of Nathan's 'legacy' once the trial's over). Here's the post I made regarding the announcement of the estimated time of death two weeks ago:Probably. None of their domains (as of writing) has entered redemption period nor have they expired according to the WHOIS entries of Faerie, LoliHunter or Rapey.
Unfortunately, I spoke too soon about LoliHunter's fall. It still exists under a different domain, jizzycoding.moe (archive). It's being hosted by one of the other admins because its WHOIS entry states it was registered on 2020/01/02 so there is no way Nathan registered it.
I did manage to archive a few things I found funny/noteworthy before it completely disappeared:Well, good news. It wont be up for long. Estimated time of death - "about a week."

Can't find any useful archives of Fukurou but this page came up and now I'm torn between hoping Nathan goes full psycho on the stand or tries 'it was just a social experiment bro.'

Another cow appearance from Daniel to give his theory on how Nathan was arrested (tl;dr the new fuhrer of the master race got outsmarted by a 12 year old).

This is much funnier however, when you consider the fact that Fukurou makes Nathan look comparatively sane. Think about like that classic technique where a moderately attractive woman hangs around two ugly friends to look good by comparison. Except in this case, all three are ugly - one's in jail, one believes in DIY internet witchcraft, and the other wants to fuck a horse.I can say regarding Nathan's forums Fukurou has a habit of making numerous alt accounts to post on the site with a few of them being female, and it's very easy to tell it's Fukurou behind the accounts due to his signature writing style that he doesn't bother to hide. He has been doing the same thing on the new Rapey.su with at least three new alts posting on the site.
This leads to some moments where Fukurou uses his alts to talk to each other such as this thread (https://rapey.su/index.php?threads/the-larson-network-will-collapse-soon.30/, almonbrownstrowger and owly are his accounts too) where he and Daniel get into an argument over foids being on the site. I bet joker is another alt of his as well.

Antifa continue to be nonces.Bumping this to offer some information about Child Wiki, the child liberation encyclopedia he used to run. Screenshots of it can be found on page six of this thread.
Recently, the notorious antifa group PNW youth liberation front tweeted this:

It made me realize their name was a reference to an obscure marxist ideology called youth liberation. Many adherents seem to believe the nuclear family should be destroyed, school should be abolished and the age of consent should be lowered or trashed altogether. I started digging into that rabbit hole here.
Basically, youth liberation advocate and child liberation activist are just synonyms for communist pedophile. Nathan was one of them. The more you know!
I thought he was a "quasineoreactionary pedolibertarian", whatever the fuck that means. I guess when you are obsessed with raping little girls, "consistent political beliefs" are going to be an afterthought.Basically, youth liberation advocate and child liberation activist are just synonyms for communist pedophile.

His political beliefs are wanting to have sex with kids. He will align himself with whichever ideology seems most likely to let him do that.I thought he was a "quasineoreactionary pedolibertarian", whatever the fuck that means.

Your faith in the powers that be is as hilarious as it is adorable.My layman's opinion is that glowies, be they tasked with tackling paedos or terrorists, have bigger targets to deal with than someone who runs a forum.

Why the fuck hasn't she been charged for being in collusion?Not much news. Nathan hasn't been charged yet for some reason, when he should have been charged on Christmas Eve. His mother Dotty has been paying for the websites, along with Nathan's plane tickets. Her name is also on the computer that Nathan has been using, and the FBI has it in their possession. It's a big conspiracy why nothing is being done yet because Dotty works in law. Personally, I think they are tracking down all the other people on those sites.
When are commies ever known for knowing what liberation means?Yeah I'm sure those guys are all for not trying to control their kids, except for the ideological conditioning if course. As soon as Jr says he doesn't think the borders should be flung open he's getting punished in some way.
