The investigation into “ritualized child sexual abuse” in Utah continues to grow more disturbing as Utah County Attorney David Leavitt is proven wrong and documents related to a connected case are released to the public.
Last week The Last American Vagabond (TLAV) reported on the unusual situation unfolding in 3 different counties in Utah, with the Utah County Sheriff’s Office announcing they were working with multiple county and federal agencies investigating reports of ritualistic child sexual abuse from as far back as 1990. The Sheriff’s Office said an investigation “into ritualistic child sexual abuse and child sex trafficking” in Utah County began in April 2021. The investigation subsequently discovered previous reports alleging “similar forms of ritualistic sexual abuse and trafficking” that occurred in Utah County, Juab County, and Sanpete County during the time between 1990 and 2010.
Following the May 31st announcement of this investigation by Utah County Sheriff Mike Smith, Utah County Attorney David Leavitt held a press conference where he shared a 151-page document titled “victim statement” related to a 2012 case involving allegations of sexual abuse of children. Leavitt and several other people are named in the statement as being involved with a group practicing ritual child sex abuse. He claimed the Sheriff’s investigation was a political attack on him related to the June 28th primary elections in Utah.
While the accusations within the victim statement are extremely disturbing — especially if true — David Leavitt continues to frame the Sheriff’s investigation as rubbish. In a recent interview with ABC4 Leavitt called Utah County Sheriff Mike Smith a “Qanon Sheriff.”
