MISSOULA, Montana — A twisted sicko allegedly launched a crowdfunding campaign to finance his trip from Indiana to Montana to have sex with a 14-year-old girl, police said.
Police in Missoula say the girl’s family caught wind of 29-year-old William Eugene White, Jr., after he had made the trip last week and showed up at the family’s door.
They said they learned that White had launched a crowdfunding campaign to come there to collect his “fiancee,” but they told him to leave, the Missoulian reported.
On Monday, the girl went missing and the family called police. She was found the next day with White at a homeless shelter where they had spent the night.
When cops questioned White, he acknowledged that he knew how young the girl was. The age of consent in Montana is 16.
White was charged with felony sexual abuse of children and ordered held on $25,000 bail.
