Children’s Director ‘Accused of Raping Dozens of Boys’ Found Dead at Home on Christmas Eve

Fact checked

A children’s theater director in Kansas City was found dead at home on Christmas Eve, days after he resigned from his position following a cascade of allegations of child sexual abuse.

Jeff Church, 63, who had led the Coterie Theatre for over 30 years, was found dead on Saturday afternoon, the Kansas City Star reported. The cause of death has not been announced.

On Thursday, KKFI 90.1 radio host Mark Manning accused Church on Facebook of assaulting him in 1991 when he was 27.

He came forward by sharing a since-deleted video by Deshawn Young, a Florida-based actor who previously lived in Kansas City, in which he described an assault. New York Post report:

“I am sharing this video testimonial from my friend Dashawn Young. Please be careful. This is very difficult to watch and hear,” Manning wrote.

“My emotional muscle memory was triggered in a way I did not fully expect. I lost it. I became so emotional that I wondered if I could even do my radio show,” he continued.

Manning went on to recount how Church allegedly assaulted him at the director’s home during a party after the production of “Dinosaurs.”

“I found myself pushed back on the bed, his mouth was on my body parts, my clothing seemed to disappear, and very quickly the director had penetrated me,” he wrote.

“It felt like my body was being used. How did this happen?” Manning said, adding that he had heard of many similar accounts of sexual abuse at the hands of the theater honcho.

Manning told the Star that the sickening acts had been “going on for over 30 years.”

Theatre director Jeff Church resigned after allegations of child sex abuse. Days later he was found dead.

“Most of these people were young theater artists trying to find their way through their theatrical career and a person in a very great authority position of directing them and deciding who gets paid and who gets the job [was] interfering in people’s lives,” he told the paper.

He said that after he shared the lengthy post, three other people reached out to him to share their similar experiences.

On Friday, the Kansas City Pitch first published more shocking allegations against Church from more than a dozen people.

KC Comeaux, an actor who worked for Church in his early 20s, also spoke out on Facebook.

“I was sexually assaulted by Jeff Church. Many of you in Kansas City had no idea of this man’s behavior. Many of you had heard rumors. But I’m here to tell you that he is a predator,” he wrote.

“He has groomed, abused, and assaulted, numerous young men over the course of 30+ years. Myself included,” Comeaux wrote. “…this man, who has used his position of power as an Artistic Director of a renowned children’s theatre, for manipulation and sex exploitation.”

On Saturday afternoon, the theater announced that it had accepted Church’s resignation and planned to investigate the multiple allegations.

“We want you to know that we are taking these allegations extremely seriously and will move forward with the investigation immediately, despite the impending holidays,” it said in a statement.

Manning called the lurid matter a “tragedy for our community.”

“I don’t want to see a whole theater company be destroyed because of one person and the horrible things that they did over a long period of time to a lot of different people, both men and women,” he told the paper.

    • Once again trust rusty to respond like a mind controlled robot thoughtlessly and without bothering to even read the articles As usual.

    • ORG CRIME runs the world thats reality anyone who thinks thats not true is`nt living in reality.Judges attorneys doctors priests teachers.ORG CRIME has no limits and they trade kids like baseball cards.WE need a real DJ and some good guys at the FBI again.and maybe a judge or two that isn`t on the take.

  1. I was raped by Robert Taylor at gun point& was shot through&through by him at age eight.He was dispatched and on tower Cam and sound scan run by big eye leta powell drake.I was raped by their human trafficking crew for over eight years from age four to 12 when I grow strong and able to fight them.Leta powell drake also dispatched mass murders on me for the BIG EYE as a hidden son of howard hughes,we were all genicided for the trillions at HHMI

  2. There will be a whole network of THEM that he worked with that will never see a court room or jail cell.They will gloat at murder sites years after and will pass that agenda ON&ON for generations in order to keep power/control and the trill of their kills as if they rape they also kill&steal and pass the trill down to the next witch&warlock

  3. Most of their parents most likely handed their kids over to the wolf/SS as they were also HAZED into slavery of the control mung wholes

      • ROBERT TAYLOR was a western star-that didn`t know his hay from his straw and the 38MM snub nose hole in my chest for the last 60 years was his GUN point rape and his rape was`nt the first time THEY raped me OR the last.Rape robbery and murder and they drop you down a 600 foot deep old well never to be found.LEARN HOW TO LIVE!!!! life an`t a act child molester!.

      • YOU say to the hughes`s child with 600 drones and low score satellites TENTED over him ALL HIS LIFE LEARN to LOOK UP and see the reality of the ripped off communicational satellites and drones and tower cams and earth and sound mics and maybe you`ll see YOUR MASK crew MANCHILD sicko!!!

      • YOUR FIRST ACT? is that no one will play with you-as you can`t write the play in the first place.SO you do a mono log turd action but WTF is your intension….fishin juist as all pedo/SS do day inn day OUT!!

      • Lastly if U knew anythin bout acting U would know reaction is (INTER-ACTION) as each movement and bit leads to the super/intension and the only action is the first movement which isn`t acting-but only the opening as actors don`t ACT!!!! they have intensions FEELINGS that you don`t.So you would be in the same boat as robert taylor the great/SS fake actor whom was nothing more than a skin headedSS whom hated everyone but his SS imported 2nd wiff stay dwonst under wear

  4. 27 is a child now? The globalist really are getting very powerful at disempowering grown adults.
    Look he was 27, why was he in that position? He wasn’t 7 months old.
    I don’t believe all these, crap artists who are just wanting the compensation as victims of a predator B/s. He was 27 He didn’t have to stay there Church had no power over him at all that he didn’t give him.

    • Your pope has All the power you say year in year out-to rape murder and kill like all the rest of your ORG CRIME MEMBERs masked witch adultchild story jacker`ss GET a honest life witch

    • Gutted disemboweled shot over a dozen time stomped muti coma`s Burned dragged by car stabbed raped raped and raped ripped off and off muti TRILLions ripped off everyone killed off satellite TENT everywhere offf my trillions stolen.Birth right stolen faked birth cert by human traffickers.But I never took money from anyone other than daddy war bucks howard hughes and our ffund for survival

    • Glad this pedo is dead. Interesting that his last name was Church. Jessie Czebotar’s grandmother was queen mother of darkness, 1 of the very highest positions in the satanic cabal. Her last name was Church. I suspect it was another made up name to mock God.

  5. Sarah Ransome must not be paying attention. Every time someone comes out with a story like this, they end up “suiciding”. Her one safe position is to release the tapes, if any tapes exist.

    Perhaps Ransome is just seeking attention and money?

  6. Sounds a little odd to me.
    Next thing I know my body parts were in his mouth and next thing I know my clothes were gone and he had pennetrated me ? Wtf was this supposed victim wearing? A towel? He sounds like he was willing . If some dude reached for my goods, rotator cuff surgery would be in his future.
