Utah Police Launch Investigation Into Alleged ‘Ritualistic’ Child Sex Abuse

Fact checked

The Utah County Sheriff’s department have launched an investiagtion into decades-old allegations of ritualistic child sexual abuse and trafficking involving high-profile individuals.

The department announced last week that it has opened the investigation in April 2021 after discovering other victims had previously reported similar incidents that took place in Utah County, Juab County, and Sanpete County from 1990 to 2010.

Utah County Attorney David Leavitt has called for the resignation of Sheriff Mike Smith over the investigation.

The Gateway Pundit reports: The County Sheriff’s department is urging the public to provide tips and encourage victims with knowledge of such crimes to step forward to receive assistance and aid.

“In April of 2021, an investigation began into ritualistic child sexual abuse and child sex trafficking that occurred in Utah County,” the department said in a press release. “The ensuing investigation discovered that other victims had previously reported similar forms of ritualistic sexual abuse and trafficking that occurred in Utah County, Juab County and Sanpete County during the time between 1990 and 2010. Portions of these allegations were confirmed.”

“These allegations are being investigated by the Utah County Sheriff’s Office in cooperation with other local and federal agencies,” the Utah Sheriff’s Department continued. “We are pleading with the public and encourage victims or individuals with knowledge of these crimes to contact the Utah County Sheriff’s Office Special Victim’s Unit so that they can be offered all the assistance possible. We understand that there are individuals who have concerns for their safety and/or well-being who have been silenced. We need your help.”

The Utah County Sheriff’s Office has not disclosed but the identity of the suspects under investigation, but “some of the subjects of the investigation are high-profile Utahns,” Fox13 reports.

The department’s announcement of the investigation prompted Utah County Attorney David Leavitt to hold a press conference calling for the resignation of Sherrif Mike Smith for “misuse of taxpayer and county resources.”

Leavitt claimed he and his wife are named in the investigation and accused of engaging in ritualistic abuse and cannibalism.

The UCSO has not publicly named Leavitt as a suspect.

A victim told Fox13 that a therapist who was charged with a series of sex crimes against young female family members is a target of the investigation. The Utah County Attorney’s Office previously dropped charges and the therapist was not convicted.

“Hypnosis was a big part of (my treatment). He told me from the very beginning, that that was his main technique,” Bluth told Fox13. “(He) would say, ‘Do you want to be healed of your homosexuality, or not?’ and the answer was yes.”

In March, Utah County Sherriff’s Office rescued three women and arrested 21 people on a slew of drug and trafficking-related charges including sexual solicitation and unlawful sexual conduct, as a result of an undercover operation to combat human sex trafficking.

The group charged represents only a small margin of the overall sex trafficking problem in Utah, Lt. Jason Randall warns.

“This isn’t even the tip of the iceberg. This is like a snowflake on an iceberg. We are barely scratching the service,” Randal said during a press conference. “One of the individuals that showed up brought rope, brought tape, brought toys, brought lingerie. And this person was under the understanding they’d be meeting with a 13-year-old child.

“There’s no doubt in my mind that we have saved multiple other child victims because this man is a perpetrator and he showed up with the intent of doing harm to a 13-year-old girl.”


  1. Yes it’s all a snowflake on the avalanche, and the perps know it. That avalanche would transform the whole world. BUT as long as most of the world believe pedophilia means having consensual sex with 16 and 17 year old hookers theyre safe. And rapes touching a girls vagina and evil predators, the biggest monsters take 16 year old girls out if the gutters and off the streets into luxury as their acts of cruelty.

  2. Could nine again under age is under age and human trafficking is crimes on humanity like a slum lord pimp and a hollywod street pimp selling aids and aids and illegal beatings rapes and so on age is NOT the biggest factor trafficking is aids is lose of teeth OD STD`s the age on consent changed ages ago it is 18 and 21 for adult films which disney produces hollywood MUCH ever?

  4. That goes back to the start of hollywood in the 1920s dead stars everywhere dragon dust everywhere human parts found all over hollywood east&west

  5. These investigations pop-up around the country every few years or so for decades and decades and nothing ever comes if it. Its just sloppiness on the part of the CLUB. Just like HST said about more kids disappearing in the Fall when the members are stocking up on winter supplies.

  6. Romney’s Utah? I’m shocked, gob smacked & flabbergasted! not. Woe to those that DARE abuse God’s innocent. These demonic Pedos & groomers are goin down like plague ridden vermin on a sinking ship! Vengeance is mine!!!! ,They rape torture & kill toddlers for their adrenochrome high & body parts.
