Cops ‘find’ Feldman molestation interview tape
COREY Feldman dropped a bombshell yesterday, claiming to have found audio of an explosive interview with police in which he named the Hollywood pedophiles who abused him as a child actor.
The star of The Goonies and Stand By Me is threatening to post the recording online, prompting warnings from fans he could be risking his life by doing so.
The revelation came less than 24 hours after the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office sensationally admitted it had located a recording of Feldman’s 1993 interview with detectives investigating Michael Jackson’s molestation charges, after consistently denying the tape’s existence.
The 46-year-old claimed in October he had given police the names of the men (Jackson was not on the list) who abused him at the time but officers failed to act.
The Sheriff’s Office responded by casting Feldman as a liar – right up until Wednesday night when it admitted that not only did the recordings exist, they had been gathering dust in police archives for 25 years.
“Due to the fact that this case involves the alleged sexual abuse of a child, we are unable to comment further and any documentation or evidence related to this case is exempt from release,” a spokesman said.
The former actor responded on social media that he had found his own copy of the interview while “rummaging” through his garage.
Feldman alleged in a
Today show interview in October with Matt Lauer that he “sat down and I gave them names. They’re on record. They have all this information”.
Last month he filed a report with the Los Angeles Police Department after publicly naming some of his alleged abusers on the Dr Oz Show.
