Anchorage police say there could be more victims in 3 child sexual abuse cases
Police say four adults have been charged in three separate cases involving children victims.
The three cases have no connection, according to a release from the Anchorage Police Department.
Now, police are asking for the public’s help to determine if more victims are connected with these incidents. In all three cases, police say there is a concern that others have been victimized by the suspects. Anyone with information on any of the cases is asked to call APD Det. Leonard Torres at 907-786-8573.
Anchorage police received a report on Aug. 28 stating David Cargill, who was 31 years old at the time, had sought drugs and “sex for money to a minor that was he knew inside of a vehicle” in the Muldoon area.
The APD Crimes Against Children Unit investigated the allegations, and on Sept. 29, charged Cargill with two counts of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor, according to online court records.
Bail was set at $50,000 with a third-party custodian requirement.
Brian Meester and Naomi Sinford
On Aug. 18, the Crimes Against Children Unit reopened an investigation of an Anchorage couple dating back to December of 2005.
Brian Meester and his then-wife Naomi Sinford are being accused of sexually abusing a two-year-old and 12-year-old on multiple occasions, according to police. Police say the abuse occurred at the couple’s trailer on Cheechako Street.
The couple was already convicted in another case involving sexual abuse of a minor from 2005. Sinford was incarcerated at the Hiland Correctional Center when she was charged with two counts of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor. Bail was set at $100,000, plus a third-party custodian.
Meester was arrested and taken to the Anchorage Correctional Complex on Oct. 2. He faces seven counts of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor. Bail was set at $100,000 with a third-party custodian requirement.
Justin Nekeferoff, 30, was involved in an undercover operation by APD and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in July. The investigation was initiated by a complaint from an acquaintance of Nekeferoff after they found child pornography on his cell phone.
A female undercover FBI agent, pretending to be new to the state, contacted Nekeferoff via Facebook messenger, court records show. After several conversations, Nekeferoff opened up to the agent about wanting to have sex with an underage girl. The FBI agent and Nekeferoff arranged to meet at a Wasilla hotel so Nekeferoff could have sex with the agent’s fictitious 8-year-old daughter.
In his exchange with the agent before the meeting, Nekeferoff admitted to having sex with a female minor from the time she was 4 years old and he was 14 years old, continuing until she was 15 and he was 24, according to court records. The abuse was reported to have occurred outside a residence in the Peters Creek area, police said.
Nekeferoff was arrested and charged with three counts of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor and one count of second-degree abuse of a minor. He is being held without bail.
