Teen Raped Orphans During Missionary Trip

Teen Confesses to Molesting and Raping Orphans During Missionary Trip


Matthew Durham may have just earned the title of worst person alive. During a missionary trip to Africa, the 19-year-old raped and molested several children at the orphanage where he volunteered. According to reports, Durham confessed to raping young girls, forcing boys to perform oral sex on him, and even making other kids watch. The victims are reportedly between the ages of 4 and 9 years old, and at least one is HIV positive. Durham has been volunteering at the orphanage for the past two years, but it was during his last visit that suspicions grew.

"A caretaker at the orphanage noticed something wasn't right and confronted Mr. Durham," United States Attorney Sanford Coats tell KTLA. Though Durham admitted to some of the acts, his lawyer, Steve Jones, claims that the teen was not in control of the situation. According to Jones, Durham's despicable actions were the result of "pseudo-tribal psychological voodoo practiced on him." Call us crazy, but we're not buying that theory for a second.
