The Rapist Next Door

The Kansas City Star continues its rich investigative tradition with "Predators in Hiding" by Tony Rizzo and Laura Bauer. The Star team went door-to-door to find out if registered sex offenders were living where they were registered. The two-part series discloses that about 30 percent of sex offenders in the Kansas City area were not living where they were supposed to be. Rizzo and Bauer report that the most dangerous of the sex criminals are the ones most likely to move away from where they are registered. The series reveals a registry system that is ill-equipped to keep track of these offenders and gives frightening examples of the consequences. Thanks to loyal reader Brian Summers for the tip.
