Frederick McLean

Frederick Cecil McLean was on the run for years. Have you fallen victim to him in South Carolina?

Frederick McLean, born February 15th 1951, went on the run in 2005, fleeing California with $100,000 in cash after allegations of 25 years of sexual abuse against at least 8 young women came to light.

During his offending, he used his links to the church as a Jehovah’s Witness to facilitate his crimes.

He was recently found dead of natural causes in South Carolina, having evaded capture.

There is a high probability that McLean was offending during his time in South Carolina and we have reason to believe he resided in the Anderson, Seneca, and Greenville areas between 2006 and his death this year.

We are aware that he had expressed interest in local children attending his home to help him with tasks prior to his death.

In The Blood

In The Blood: DNA testing truly is a complex and, for many, controversial topic area, set against a backdrop of global differences in approach to fundamental rights and freedoms which can make discussions like this too hot to touch. Nonetheless, there are still these much bigger discussions to be had around the way we use the power of DNA to prevent harm in society and that’s the real challenge here – getting to a point where the basic premise of the discussion is understood in its simplest form: a problem to solve. For me the conversation starts with that poor girl in the field. She deserves to be known. She deserves peace. In a world where her DNA was attributable to her, nearly forty years wouldn’t have passed. But sometimes solving one problem can create many more conflicts and it is important to appreciate that fully. This is the thing about investigative work. Sometimes, there’s just no easy answer. But we still have to talk about even the things we might not want to, calmly and rationally, because an unexplored avenue might be the one where the right answer lies.
