Conspiracies about child rape camp continue to grow

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON – Conspiracy theories about a child rape camp are gaining more attention.

Veterans on Patrol is an organization that looks for homeless veterans and tries to connect them to services. They are based at a camp on private property near Santa Rita Park. The group has thousands of very loyal followers on its Facebook page.

Michael Lewis Arthur Meyer leads the organization. He is not a veteran and does not claim to be. He went to the anti-government standoffs at Bundy Ranch and the Oregon wildlife refuge. He said he was there to de-escalate the situations.

He found a camp near Interstate 19 and Valencia Road that he believes was used for child sex trafficking. Tucson police investigated and said it was just a homeless camp.

Meyer found a skull in the desert near Marana later in the week. He told his Facebook followers it was a child’s. The Pima County Medical Examiner said it was an adult.

New 4 Tucson called Meyer for this report, and he immediately hung up the phone. He said he will give a statement if a reporter spends 1 week volunteering with his organization.

Jon McLane volunteers with Veterans on Patrol. He is not sure about Meyer’s claims, but he has seen a lot of homeless camps.

“In regards to it being just another run-of-the-mill homeless camp,” McLane said, “if there is anything I don't buy, I don't buy that.”

At least one fake news website has added more to the story.

City Council Member Paul Cunningham wrote about the issue in his weekly newsletter.

"In the days since this has hit the media,” Cunningham wrote, “the incident has morphed on national websites into an alleged conspiracy that involves groups as diverse as Mexican corporation CEMEX, controversial company NXIVM, the Clinton Foundation and even the Libyan Provisional Government. I wish I was making this up. If you want to look it up on the internet you can, but life is really too short for you to waste your time."

Meyer has launched what he calls “Operation Back Yard Brawl” with “patriots” coming from across the country to fight sex trafficking in the desert.

“Another thing that disappoints me,” Cunningham wrote, “are the attacks on our police and on our mayor. It amazes me how many people in our community that support the police are at the same time alleging that they would be involved in a cover up of something like this. As for the mayor, there are a number of bizarre allegations out there that invoke his religion and his last name [Rothschild]."
