Yes, I'd say this guy is a little scary!
He also looks like he could have been an illustration of a Jew from Julius Striecher's THE POISONOUS MUSHROOM.
No Bond For Sex Offender Who Posted Bizarre Videos
A man who calls himself a “YouTube legend” was a no-show in court Monday. Police say the registered sex offender first broke the rules by posting bizarre videos online.
He is being held without bond. His public defender pleaded not guilty in court, but no changes were made to the 77-year-old's bond status.
Edward Muscare was first arrested for molesting a 14-year-old boy in Orange County back in 1986, but he has a long line of problems following court orders.
Muscare moved out of a now overgrown Lady Lake house on Sunshine Avenue (see map) and moved to South Carolina in 2007. He didn't report his new address to authorities and as a result he got five years probation. Now he’s violated the terms to his release from jail.
Edward Muscare won't be making any new YouTube videos in the near future. He is still being held without bond. Muscare was arrested Saturday for posting 130 videos of himself on the website YouTube, which is a violation of his probation.
When Muscare appeared on YouTube lip-syncing songs, along with other strange antics, cops had him arrested at his South Carolina home and brought him back to Lake County.
Muscare is a former host who went by the name ‘Uncle Ed’ on late night television and on a children's program in Kansas City.
“Let the man live his life, there's not much left. He's old, he's feeble,” former neighbor Chrystal Guemble said.
His former neighbor insisted that Muscare is not a threat to society.
“He's never been a threat he's been a helpful, warm, loving, kind, friendly neighbor who's always there when you need him,” she said.
There were some neighbors, though, who've watched his videos and said he looks scary.
“Just creeped out. If anybody has seen it they'd know, he's definitely a freaky kind of guy,” parent Todd Whitney said.
But officers don't care about the bizarre videos. It's their contention that Muscare continually disregards court orders.
He was specifically told not to post the videos and so he thought he'd have a friend do it. -That's a violation according to prosecutors.
Online, some fans have offered support and in his old neighborhood, friends say they are amazed by his digital fame.
“I'm proud of him, I'm so proud of him,” Guemble said.
Investigators found videos and pictures on Muscare's computer, but nothing of a sexual nature. The only new allegation against the man is that he didn't obey the judge.
