Weldon Marc Gilbert
I’m not even sure why I’m going to put a poll on this one.
47-year-old Weldon Marc Gilbert was a successful pilot for over thirty years. It was all he ever wanted to be.
Starting from when he was 12 years old, when Marc Gilbert told his parents that he knew he was destined to be a pilot, he worked long and hard at making his dreams come true.
He became a licensed pilot when he was just 17 years old, hanging out with flight instructors every chance he could, while he did well in his honors classes during high school. At 19, Marc Gilbert flew his family to California for a vacation. At 27, he became a licensed 747 pilot, flying Lear jets before UPS hired him as one of their pilots.
The president of Spencer Aircraft, made a lot of money during his life as a pilot, but he never got married.
I wonder why.
Do you wonder why?
Marc Gilbert’s mother wondered why her 47-year-old son had started to let younger men move into his house. For a while, Marc had stuck with men who were apparently in their 20′s, but recently Marc Gilbert had let a 17-year-old boy move in with him.
His mother didn’t really approve of the situation, but allowed herself to think that Marc Gilbert was just mentoring these kids, who undoubtedly wanted to become pilots.
You see what you want to see, I suppose.
In late October, 2007, local authorities began to investigate Weldon Marc Gilbert.
Now, apparently, Marc had two boys who had been living with him for a few months. The youngest turned 13 on the 4th of November, 2007, the older one was 17. The two boys had first met Mr. Marc Gilbert back in 2001, a few months after their father died.
I’m not sure why these two boys were living with Marc Gilbert, and neither were the boys’ older siblings, who were a wee bit suspicious of why a 47-year-old unmarried man would take in two boys. After asking their younger brothers what was going on, the older siblings realized that the kids were being sexually abused and contacted the police about it.
The police, who are most always interested in getting kiddy-touchers off the streets, interviewed the two boys, and learned some of the most interesting things about Mr. Marc Gilbert.
The older boy told them that Marc Gilbert would give him money and take him on trips to different countries, like Hong Kong and Thailand . While they were taking these trips, Marc would, of course, molest him.
This molesting and spanking had been going on for six years, with the last episode happening on the 28th of October, 2007.
The younger boy related that Marc Gilbert had been spanking and molesting him, too, ever since he had moved into the older man’s house.
Making the detective work even easier was the fact that the older boy had a videotape in his possession that Marc Gilbert had made of one of the spanking and molesting sessions with the boy’s younger brother.
That was easily enough evidence to get a warrant to search Mr. Gilbert’s home, and on the 31st of October, 2007, police had a field day wandering through what appeared to be a house designed by child molesters for child molesters.
Hey, what self-respecting millionaire pedophile doesn’t have rooms with kid-oriented themes?
During the search, videotapes and DVD’s of Marc Gilbert’s sexual proclivities were found. He liked to tape his little “adventures.”
Once Marc had the kid alone, he would get them drunk, lead them to one of his “fun rooms” and tie them down. Then, while he had his hidden camera rolling, he would beat and sexually abuse his victim.
Footage that authorities have examined shows Marc Gilbert beating at least 20 different boys, whose ages range from 12 to 17. During especially cruel beating sessions, the boys would often cry out and plead with Marc to stop hurting them.
According to the local sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer:
He gave them alcohol. We don’t know if there’s drugs involved. He had rooms specifically designated for this. He was an intelligent man. He was a wealthy man. He put all of those things together, and he was able to do what he needed to do to get what he wanted.
Weldon Marc Gilbert has been charged with nine sex crimes so far. His charges include child rape, child molestation, and sexual exploitation of a minor.
Authorities are still looking for more of Marc Gilbert’s victims.
Marc Gilbert’s mother has told the press that she plans to support her son during his trial, but that she’s been praying a lot, and if she didn’t have God to fall back on, she would go curl up into a corner and cry.
Kind of like her son’s victims, I suppose.
