Robert Sanchez Vanishes Amid Child Sex Abuse Claim
Producer Robert Sanchez disappeared three weeks ago after allegations of sex abuse involving his 14-year-old stepdaughter surfaced, police say. Sanchez, who founded the fanboy movie website IESB.net, has been the subject of rumors that he filmed himself drugging and sexually assaulting his teenaged stepdaughter, The Wrap reports. No charges have been filed, there’s no warrant for Sanchez’s arrest, and he hasn’t been listed as a missing person. Meanwhile the mystery is growing: IESB managing editor Jamie Williams told staff there was a "family emergency/tragedy," and on Friday night, “it was heavily implied that Robert had passed away.” But on Monday, Williams learned of the allegations and Sanchez’s disappearance, and resigned. Police say a report was filed June 1, but it was unrelated to child abuse.
