Nathaniel Bar-Jonah, whose birth name is actually David P. Brown died yesterday in his prison cell in a Montana State Prison. Authorities say that it looks like a natural death. How unfair to his victims that he didn't suffer as he made them suffer. I have to tell you this story, it is true.
In the Worcester, MA area in 1977, two teenaged boys were kidnapped and handcuffed by a man claiming to be a Police Officer. He put one boy in the trunk of the official- looking car and headed for the woods. He ended up trying to choke one of the boys, but the boy was able to escape. David P. Brown served 2 years in a MA Prison, then 11 years at Bridgewater State Hospital.
A Judge ordered him released in 1991 and after much public outcry he was ordered to move to Montana and live with his Mother.
Bar-Jonah was serving a 130 year sentence for sexual battery and kidnapping of a teen aged boy. In 2000, he was charged with the 1996 murder of 10 year old Zachary Ramsey. The boy was buthchered and served to un-suspecting neighbors as meals. Murder charges were dropped due to lack of evidence because Zachary's Mother would testify that she thought her son was still alive. In fact, he is still listed as a missing child.
After reading the stories in The Worcester Telegram and The Boston Globe, I remembered a little boy, Andrew Amato who was 4 years old when he disappeared from the woods behind his home in Webster, MA. That was in 1977.
In 1976, Andrew G. Puglisi disappeared from Lawrence, MA.
In 1973, Janice Pockett disappeared from Conneticut, just 10 minutes away from Webster, MA.
In 1997, Amanda Gallion disappeared from Wyoming.
In 1963, when David P. Brown was 6 years old, he attempted to choke a classmate on the playground at school.
In December, 2001, authorities in Montana recovered a list from Bar-Jonah's belongings in Montana. The list was titled "Webster Lake" and had names on it. Some were people that Bar-Jonah had assaulted. Police checked the list for missing or murdered people and found no matches.
He's dead, he won't be hurting any more children. Why wasn't he stopped before all these children disappeared? If we had mandatory sentencing, such as a one strike death penalty law for sex offenders, these children wouldn't be dead. Other children wouldn't of had to suffer assaults and life long scars.
Once again, these freaks are walking amongst us, breathing our air and watching our children. Scary, isn't it?
