Victim count in Wasilla child-sex case rises to 8
Alaska State Troopers now say at least eight children were victimized by a man initially charged with sexually abusing four of them, as troopers continue to ask anyone harmed by him to step forward.
A Palmer grand jury Friday indicted 27-year-old Seth Loggins on more than two dozen counts, including 16 counts of sexual abuse of a minor, eight counts of harassment and one count of second-degree assault.
"These charges reflect eight victims," troopers wrote. "Investigation is continuing as AST believes there are more victims."
Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters said nothing further was available Friday evening on the new victims' links to Loggins.
In previous charging documents against Loggins, troopers said the truck driver had befriended boys before abusing them with sex toys, including one incident which occurred in church. Loggins allegedly denied owning any such toys, but investigators found one during a search of his room.
Anyone with information on the case or other potential victims of Loggins is asked to call troopers at 907-745-2131.
