Investigators Say Accused Child Molester Was Writing Memoir About Alleged Prolific Abuse. This is so sick; the only saving grace is this lower-life form left a paper and digital trail of his perversions that should result in a conviction. With his rap sheet, why was this man freed time after time to roam the streets to perpetrate crimes against children?

A man who authorities say could be the nation’s most prolific child molester was crafting a lengthy memoir about his sexual exploits with boys when he was arrested, police said.

Authorities also said they have cracked “99 percent” of the detailed code that Dean Schwartzmiller used in notebooks he kept, apparently to chronicle crimes both real and imagined. Schwartzmiller was arrested earlier this month after investigators said they discovered notebooks with 36,700 handwritten entries of boys’ names, descriptions of their anatomy and codes for suspected sex acts. The notebook entries, apparently coded for each boy’s anatomy and personality, are being entered into a spreadsheet, but police said they have not determined how many victims there were because many items are duplications and some may describe Schwartzmiller’s fantasies.

San Jose Police Lt. Scott Cornfield said investigators seized a typed memoir that Schwartzmiller had been writing about his exploits with boys. The manuscript is about an inch-and-a-half thick. In Schwartzmiller’s words, “every boy was beautiful and every one wanted him,” Cornfield said.

Schwartzmiller is being held without bail on one count of aggravated sexual assault on a child under 14 and six counts of lewd and lascivious conduct on a child under 14 involving two 12-year-old cousins. He faces two life sentences if convicted.

…Police also said they confiscated CDs, DVDs and videotapes, including child pornography, as well as computer servers and hard drives, which are being evaluated by specialists at the FBI’s Regional Computer Forensic Laboratory in Menlo Park.

Investigators say Schwartzmiller, who went by a variety of aliases and earned a living doing stucco work, repeatedly avoided trials and got out of jail or prison early. Despite his lengthy criminal record, he was not required to register as a sex offender. It was a minor traffic accident on May 17 that brought Schwartzmiller to the attention of San Jose police. According to police, Schwartzmiller appeared ready to exchange information until the other driver suggested contacting the police.

That’s when Schwartzmiller fled. Police tracked down his address and went to his home but he was not there. However, they spoke to his roommate and former prison buddy, Fred Everts, 34. Suspicious, they checked Everts’ background and found that he had two previous molestation convictions and arrested him on an outstanding warrant for a parole violation in Oregon.

Meanwhile, Schwartzmiller heard about Everts’ arrest and quickly fled to Washington state. From there, he called one of the boys he is accused of molesting and asked him to go to his house to “remove and destroy paperwork, CDs, computer drives and other items,” a police report shows. The boy and his siblings decided to tell their mother, who went to police with evidence, including a CD containing photos of her semi-naked son. Schwartzmiller was arrested two days later.
