Skip to comments.SEX OFFENDER PROFILES: (Westerfield and the van Dam case!)
Posted on 03/22/2002 9:04:21 AM PST by FresnoDA
Preferential Child Molester
Preferential Child Molesters have a definite sexual preference for children. Their sexual fantasies and erotic imagery focus on children. They have sex with children not because of some situational stress or insecurity but because they are sexually attracted to and prefer children. If this individual does not act on his urges, then he is not a child molester.
Situational Child Molester
Situational Child Molesters do not have a true sexual preference for children, but engage in sex with children for varied and complex reasons. This type of molester may engage in sex with a child, ranging from a once-in-a-lifetime act to a long-term pattern of behavior. The more long-term the behavior is, the more difficult it is to distinguish from a preferential molester. Members of lower socioeconomic groups tend to be over represented among situational child molesters.
An area of increasing attention is that of adolescent offenders. This type of offender can fit the characteristics of the preferential or situational child molester. Adolescent (or younger) offenders should always be viewed as past or current victims of sexual abuse. This may include psychological sexual abuse, inappropriate exposure to sexually explicit materials, and/or the repeated or inappropriate witnessing of adult sexual activity.
Question: Are all child molesters pedophiles?
A pedophile is an individual who prefers to have sex with children. A person who prefers to have sex with an adult partner may, for any number of reasons, decide to have sex with a child. Such reasons may include simple availability, curiosity, or a desire to hurt a loved one of a molested child. The sexual fantasies of these individuals do not necessarily focus on children.
Question: How does the abuse occur?
Abuse occurs in a wide range of situations and settings. For long-term abusers, often, the child molester will court the child with attention, affection, and gifts. Just as one adult courts another during a dating process, the pedophile seduces children over a period of time by gradually lowering their sexual inhibitions. Sometimes the molester will tickle, wrestle, or hug the child in the presence of others first, adding legitimacy to the activity that will occur later in private. Often a child feels guilty or ashamed of the abuse. Children may feel that a short amount of uncomfortable feeling is worth the amount of attention and affection and perceived care they receive from the molester.

Actually....how would Damon do when analyzed by the same criteria.....just wondering.....
Authorities have not determined the cause of death. No murder weapon was recovered from the scene, an unincorporated area across from a sand mine about 25 miles east of San Diego." -
The body was found about 25 feet from the north side of Dehesa Road, about a mile east of Singing Hills Country Club and about 11/2 miles west of Sycuan Casino.
from map quest, mountain pass road to 4500 dehesa is about 32 miles and 52 minutes by car.
one of the bike trails as posted by mommya:
Sycuan Summit - El Cajon/Dehesa From San Diego take the 8 to the Washington exit. Go South on Washington to the Dehesa Rd. intersection. Take Dehesa to Sloan Canyon Rd. You'll see a sand company. You can park at the beginning of the road. The trail is about 12-15 miles long to the end and back. There is also another trail at the end of the road to the left."
looks like somewhere near Dehesa Rd & Sloan Canyon Rd. from the satellite photo..I don't know which is the sand company but one side of the road has several buildings the other looks like excavation...
My God. What kind of parent . . .?

Anxiety, worries grip missing girl's parents

Douglas Pierce, who works with the fund, spent an hour in the house with the family yesterday. "I visited Danielle's room and it was very emotional, very overwhelming," Pierce said. "There were all her favorite things waiting for her." The room is painted in Danielle's favorite colors, pink with purple trim. Alongside Danielle's bed was her favorite toy, a giant green frog that she hugged at night. A Barbie doll sat near a collection of stuffed toys. A journal was open to the last entry, penned last week about good will, Pierce said.
NOTE: A friend of the vds, and I'm sure this can be confirmed with school if the parents allow it, said that she was advanced in her thinking and writing.. (that's from news articles)
Hey "Jessi's mommy" get a clue. Middle age perverts are looking at your little baby and playing with themselves because you are exploiting her for a buck. For cryin' out loud, lady! You are using your little girl to make sick, twisted, dirty old men horny.
This is so sick, I absolutely want to vomit. God help us. And God help the babies raised by these people.
"Douglas Pierce is some kind of freak who came into our house," Damon van Dam told a Los Angeles radio station Thursday. He called Pierce "evil." "He is trying to start trouble for us," Brenda van Dam said. "We did not invite him into our house."
Pierce said he was shocked when Brenda van Dam showed him Danielle's journal. " 'Daddy, please forgive me,' " Pierce said one entry read. " 'Daddy please love me. Danielle.' " "After my personal observation, I'm asking for a wake-up call from the San Diego Police Department to investigate the family," Pierce said.
Parents becoming focus of public's interest in case http://video.uniontrib.com/news/metro/danielle/20020209-9999_1n9fund.html February 9, 2002
Brenda: "Douglas how about something she just wrote to her dad" Hidden in (Danielle's) nightstand. The "Daddy forgive me note" was handed to Douglas H Pierce. I read the torn 2 sided note, (That I NOW believe was from Journal/DIARY) AND WAS SHOCKED COULD NOT LOOK AT (Damon's) FACE
