One of the earlier reports on former Duke University professor, Frank Lombard showed a complaint of Lombard saying he was “into incest.” This is some two years before he was finally jailed for allegedly raping, molesting, and attempting to offer his adopted 5-year-old son for sex to a stranger. In addition to these terrible crimes against his child, he molested him on camera in online chat and video sessions.
In the 2007 complaint:
ICUii also shared with the FBI a complaint filed in January 2007 against Frank Lombard from another user. That user alleged Lombard said he “was into incest” and had adopted two African-American children, the affidavit says.
In the June 2009 online chat that put Lombard in jail, the undercover police officer chatting with Lombard reports the following:
F.L.” [Frank Lombard] described specific sex acts he had performed on a 5-year-old child and said that he lived in Durham.
In the chat transcript, WRAL reports, “F.L.” is asked how he got access to a child so young. “Adopted,” he replied, and said that the process was “not so hard … esp (sic) for a black boy.”
In the chat, “F.L.” told Palchak that abusing the child was “easier when he was too young to know what was happening and when he couldn’t talk …He had a little too much Benadryl. Was knocked out.”
Lombard was originally placed in a Durham jail but reports are that he was or will be moved to Washington, D.C. to face charges. One report says that Lombard “waived detention hearing in MD/NC.” This man who raped and molested his own child has hired an attorney. I found a report saying that attorney Brian Aus appeared with Lombard. No confirmation on that, although Brian Aus is listed as a Durham attorney.
