A flier of a missing 10-year-old girl found in the home of three elderly brothers with notes of satanic rituals has rekindled hopes of a possible cold case break.

Charles Emery, 82, Thomas Emery, 80, and Edwin Emery, 78, were arrested earlier this week on child pornography and sexual abuse charges, with prosecutors saying their home was “littered floor to ceiling” with sick images, toys and children’s shoes.

The discoveries came as a relative was cleaning out their home in Seattle, though investigators are now also looking at the home one of the brothers owned in suburban Shelton.

That house is 30 minutes from where Lindsey Baum, then 10 years old, vanished in June 2009.


Her disappearance made national news as police suspected foul play, though no suspects had ever been named in the case.

Authorities are now looking into any potential link the Emery brothers may have to Baum’s fate, with Grays Harbor County Sheriff Rick Scott telling KIRO that a flier about the missing girl was found in the Shelton home.

That discovery comes as investigators looking into both the Shelton and Seattle homes have reportedly found notes about the “ritualistic and Satanic sacrifices of minor female children.”

Prosecutors said in charging documents that the brothers’ alleged accounts of doing harm to children were also joined by both local and national news articles about missing and murdered children.

Scott told KIRO no connection to the Baum case has been found, but added that his department works on the case “every day in some shape or form.”
