The Utah County Sheriff’s Office is asking victims of “ritualistic child sexual abuse” to come forward and provide information. On Tuesday, the sheriff’s office released a brief statement, noting that since April 2021, an investigation into “ritualistic child sexual abuse and child sex trafficking” in Utah County had been underway. The sheriff’s office declined Tuesday to say who or what groups are being investigated or what kind of ritualistic abuse is occurring, according to KSL .
Law enforcement officials have reported that “other victims had previously reported similar forms of ritualistic sexual abuse and trafficking that occurred in Utah County, Juab County and Sanpete County during the time between 1990 and 2010.”
“We are pleading with the public and encourage victims, or individuals with knowledge of these crimes, to contact the Utah County Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit so that they can be offered all the assistance possible. We understand that there are individuals who have concerns for their safety and/or well-being, who have been silenced. We need your help,” the sheriff’s office in Utah’s second most populous county said Tuesday.
Federal agents are also reportedly working on the case.
Utah County Attorney David Leavitt has denied that such things are happening and wants an investigation of Sheriff Mike Smith’s handling of the allegations.
At a Wednesday press conference, the prosecutor denied any involvement after Leavitt revealed that he and his wife are named in the probe. “I learned that my wife and I were part of those allegations, allegedly that we were guilty of cannibalizing young children, and murdering young children,” Leavitt said.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
