Not a Childrens story: Elmo and the Home Inspector

Sesame Street: Elmo to Host 'Virtual Play Date' amid Coronavrius |

Kevin Wayne VanLuven

Last month, fifty nine year old Kevin Wayne VanLuven was hired to inspect a home in the Detroit suburb of Oxford Township, just prior to the sale of the property. The owners let VanLuven and the buyer’s real estate agent into the home, then departed the residence during the March 12 inspection.

Some how Van Luven found himself in the nursery. The young homeowner had one of those webcam that detects movement that sends an alert to a cell phone.

When she opened her phone, she saw the home inspector touching himself (you know-touching, himself) then he picked up her childs Elmo doll and started pleasuring himself with Elmo, totally unware he was being filmed.

Naturally, the young homeowner was disgusted (poor Elmo) and called 911.

When the sherriff arrived, VanLuven told them he only moved the doll (poor Elmo) to inspect an electricial outlet.

When he learned that there was a Camera in the nursery, Van Luven dropped to his knees and called out for “Christ da Savior”. (not really-but that would have been funny)

Charged with aggravated indecent exposure and malicious destruction (poor Elmo) of property under $200, VanLuven was booked into the Oakland County jail, where he is being held in lieu of $2500 bond. A judge has directed VanLuven to undergo a mental health evaluation, and has prohibited him from being alone in any residential property that he does not own. Additionally, he has been ordered to have no contact with the Oxford Township homeowners.

If convicted of the indecent exposure charge, VanLuven faces up to two years in prison. The property destruction count carries a maximum penalty of about three months in jail.

One wonders if this is his first offence? Has he violated any other Seseme Street Doll?
