Another man has come forward to accuse the former voice of Sesame Street’s Elmo, Kevin Clash, of sexual impropriety with a minor. The fourth victim is suing the puppeteer of engaging in underage sex with him and transporting him across state lines for the sole purpose of engaging in sexual activities.
After the first victim came forward, Kevin denied any wrongdoing. After a quick settlement, the accuser then recanted his story. Then, he went public again saying that he was pressured to recant, but wanted to clear his name and that the allegations were, in fact, true.
Afterward, two more accusers came forward, filing sex abuse cases against the puppeteer. Since, he has resigned from his job, of which he worked for 28 years.
Now, a fourth accuser has come forward to claim that Kevin promised to be a father figure to him and even went as far as flying him to New York to engage in sex. Reportedly, because Kevin flew him to New York, the case might actually turn into a criminal case because he took him out of the state for sexual activity.
The fourth victim’s attorney said that he advised his client to notify authorities of the incident, but we haven’t received word yet as to if he did or not.
