Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department Finds Actor Corey Feldman's Missing 1993 Tape

Thursday, 07 Dec, 2017

Among those audio recordings was an interview with Feldman, which has now been handed over to the Los Angeles Police Department, the sheriff's office said.

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office has reportedly obtained audiotapes from 1993 on which Corey Feldman names the individuals whom he alleges abused him when he was a minor.

Corey Feldman's list of predators dating back to the Michael Jackson pedophile investigation actually does exist, police now say, after denying there was any record of claims made by the former child star in 1993, Fox News reported.

But the sheriff's office previously denied the claims, saying they had no records of Feldman revealing such information, however they have now changed their tune and stated that an audio recording has been found in a container from the original Michael Jackson child abuse investigation.

Corey Feldman, seen during an October 30 appearance on NBC's 'Today Show, ' says he's made a formal report to the Los Angeles Police Department about the molestation he suffered as a preteen.

In his interview with Matt Lauer on October 30, Feldman, 46, revealed that names were on record after Lauer pressed him about never releasing anything.

Also, there was initial confusion about whether Feldman told the Santa Barbara Police, which serves only the city, or the sheriff's office, which serves the rest of the county.

The recording, which couldn't be released publicly because the case involves the alleged sexual abuse of a child, was on its way to the Los Angeles Police Department, the spokesperson said.

In an online post last month, Feldman said he is "forever grateful" to the women who came forward with sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein because the story has resurrected interest in his own claims of sexual abuse. They said they can not mention the contents of the recording since it is a case involving the sexual abuse of a minor. When Feldman appeared on the Thurs, Nov. 2 episode of The Dr. Oz Show, he named his former co-star Jon Grissom as one of his molesters.

While the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office is transferring the tape to the Los Angeles Police Department, Feldman has already revealed two of his accusers on separate occasions.

Feldman, known most for his work in The Goonies, Stand By Me and The Lost Boys is trying to raise $10 million to make a film about the sexual misconduct in Hollywood.

He also mentioned the name Marty Weiss, a Hollywood child talent agent, when he was interviewed by Megyn Kelly on "Today", around the same time as the Oz interview.
