In the middle of July, #Justice4Freddy, the new Facebook page and hashtag has gone live. Though it is still a very young page, it has received over fifty likes within a month. For the followers who continue to keep the ear against the door on this growing story we say thank you.
I also want to add that soon, Freddy's Memorial Page on the website will be complete. I am currently working with family members to tell their intimate stories about Freddy and how he was in life so that everyone understands the beautiful life that Freddy led. At this time, the family is still working on a story to put up here and will let everyone know when it goes up.
As this all happens, a 32-page document was released last month by the Duval County courts detailing some of Hyde's transgressions. In it, it reveals that for the longest time, he had considered himself a nudist. Other informative contents in the document also reveal he spent nearly $1000 on child pornography from a film company in Toronto, ON, Canada; one of the reasons he was named in an international child exploitation case known as Operation: Spade. A couple of months ago, we were led to believe that he may have been involved in the worldwide child exploitation case known as Operation: PlayPen, which was released prior to the document being made available to the public. You can still read this well put article on our website under Special Reports.
Also included in this document, there are allegations of sexual abuse by Hyde, as well as detailed specifics of him producing child pornography using a camera with sound capabilities. There was also a story mentioned about how he enticed two young boys, one named Joey, to perform sex acts on another person and participate in the child porn films Hyde produced. It was also mentioned that Joey was Autistic and suffered from mental problems.
We are continuing to monitor the information we receive, and hope to get the information out in a timely manner.
Ronnie Hyde's next court date is set for later this month, where he will face Judge Angela Cox once more in preparation for his impending trial.
