LAW ENFORCEMENT RECENTLY REOPENED A NEARLY TWO-DECADE-OLD SEXUAL ASSAULT CASE AFTER A MAN WAS REPORTED MAKING INAPPROPRIATE COMMENTS ABOUT CHILDREN.

BRUCE SLOYER WAS CHARGED EARLIER THIS WEEK WITH SIX COUNTS RELATED TO THE SEXUAL ABUSE OF A MINOR.

COURT RECORDS SAY THE CASE WAS REOPENED SEPTEMBER 13TH WHEN A POLICE OFFICER TOOK A REPORT ABOUT SLOYER, WHO WAS MAKING WEIRD COMMENTS ABOUT CHILDREN.

THE OFFICER SPOKE WITH SLOYER'S WIFE, WHO SAID SHE DIDN'T TRUST HER HUSBAND AROUND CHILDREN BECAUSE HE SOMETIMES MADE INAPPROPRIATE COMMENTS, AND SHE REFERRED TO HIM AS A "SEX OFFENDER."

IN AN INTERVIEW WITH THE OFFICER, SOLYER TOLD HER HIS WIFE MADE THE "SEX OFFENDER" COMMENT BECAUSE OF EVENTS 20 YEARS AGO WITH A GIRL THAT SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN HIM IN TROUBLE.

THE OFFICER CONTACTED A NATRONA COUNTY SHERIFF'S INVESTIGATOR WHO FOUND A REPORT FROM FEBRUARY 2000 ABOUT THE THEN 11- OR 12-YEAR-OLD GIRL WHO RECOUNTED INCIDENTS OF SLOYER MOLESTING HER IN HER BEDROOM.

AT THAT TIME INVESTIGATORS SEARCHED FOR SEMINAL FLUID IN HER BEDROOM.

BECAUSE NONE WAS FOUND, THE CRIMINAL CASE WENT INACTIVE.

LAST WEEK, THE INVESTIGATOR INTERVIEWED THE ALLEGED VICTIM WHO SAID SHE LIED ABOUT WHERE THE INCIDENTS OCCURRED, AND THAT'S WHY SEMINAL FLUID WASN'T FOUND.

SHE ALSO SAID SLOYER WOULD GIVE HER TREATS TO BE KIND, AND BUILD HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH HER, BUT WAS REALLY A PLOY TO ABUSE HER.
