Intercourse Offender With Cannibal Pursuits Is Transferring In, Some Neighbors Indignant They Weren’t Notified – CBS Sacramento

ORANGEVALE (CBS13) – If you walk down Drywood Way in Orangevale, you’ll see white picket fences, neighbors walking their dogs, and kids riding bikes.

It’s a sleepy area where everyone knew each other until now. A surprising neighbor moves in that mother Melanie Osterman is not upset about.

“No, I’m pissed off because I have a 4 year old and a 3 month old and he’s right there. And she rides a bicycle, ”said Osterman.

Some neighbors said they had received a warning that 45-year-old Jason Bryan Scarcello, a registered sex offender who authorities say has an interest in cannibalism, is about to move into the neighborhood.

“That’s ridiculous. I want him out of here,” said Stephanie Barnes.

An ICE investigation found that Scarcello participated in online chats about child pornography, torture and food for children.

“Do children eat? Everything is disgusting. There’s nothing wrong and I want him to get out of here, ”Barnes said. “This is not the place for him. I don’t think any place is the place for him. He should have his butt back in jail. “

“It’s twisted. Yeah, I don’t want him here, ”said Skip Johnson. “We’re getting everyone out of jail and they’re going somewhere. And it’s coming to your neighborhood soon. “

Now the neighbors are angry, some have received a text or email notification and some have not. James Pruitt, a 21-year-old grandfather, says he doesn’t want Scarcello close to his family.

“Many of them come by at different times. My neighbors have children everywhere. They have children, they have children. It’s crazy. How do you leave someone in the neighborhood with it? It’s wrong, ”said Pruitt.

It is possible that some neighbors have been notified of the local neighborhood watch program. The California attorney general’s office tells CBS13 by law that they have put Scarcello’s information online and must notify local law enforcement from there. The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office told CBS13 that Scarcello did not qualify as a violent sex offender and they would have to notify the neighbors.

“We missed a memo, we missed a big memo. So can’t we fight that now? Can’t we keep this from happening? Said Osterman.
