The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s office has found recordings of former child actor Corey Feldman in which he said he named child predators in Hollywood, Fox News reports.
The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s office previously denied claims by Feldman that he gave police names of pedophiles in Hollywood during the 1993 investigation into Michael Jackson’s molestation charges.
But on Tuesday night, the Sheriff’s office public information officer Kelly Hoover told Fox News that they have located the recordings.
“Following the recent inquiries into the Sheriff’s Office interview of Mr. Feldman in 1993, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office conducted an additional review for any stored items remaining from the Michael Jackson investigation,” Hoover said in a statement to Fox.
“In a container which included the original reports from the investigation, the Sheriff’s Office located some detective working copies of audio recordings made during the investigation,” Hoover said. “A copy of Mr. Feldman’s interview was located.”
“The recording is being turned over to the Los Angeles Police Department,” she added. “Due to the fact that this case involves the alleged sexual abuse of a child, we are unable to comment further and any documentation or evidence related to this case is exempt from release.”
Feldman, now 46, told the Today show that he “sat down and I gave them names. They’re on record. They have all this information.”
