Two suspects in video sex assaults ID'd

Los Angeles County sheriff’s detectives said Friday that LAPD help has led them to identify two of the men whose faces were shown on video that allegedly recorded sexual attacks on severely disabled women. The video, part of a press release we posted about yesterday, appears to show attacks in residential care facilities. From the LAT:

The sheriff’s investigation began in March when a package was mysteriously left at sheriff’s headquarters with 100 hours of video footage showing severely disabled women, many in diapers, being sexually assaulted by anonymous men.

The attacks appeared to have taken place at residential care centers, authorities said, and most of the attackers are believed to be employees....

Some of the footage was shot with a handheld camera and the remainder by a security camera, detectives said. Enhancing and analyzing the video took several months, authorities said.
