Heroes come in all shapes and sizes! A man dubbed the “Alaskan Avenger” has taken it upon himself to avenge children and other victims of pedophiles and sex offenders.
Jason Vukovish was a victim of child molestation and abuse, and did not want other children to go through the same thing. He began using the online registry of sex offenders to find them and then beat them with a hammer.
Vukovich wrote in a letter, “’What I can say at this time is that after being physically and mentally abused by a predator, my life was forever changed.”
According to Alfred NG of NY Daily News, using Anchorage’s public online sex offender registry to locate up to three offenders, Jason Vukovich allegedly broke into his victims’ homes and bashed in their heads with a hammer in June.NG says, “One of his victims landed on the sex offender registry 10 years ago, after pleading no contest to attempted sexual abuse of a minor.”“He said, ‘I’m an avenging angel, I’m going to mete out justice for the people you hurt,’” Wesley Demarest, one of the people Vukovich tracked down, told a local news station.Police said Vukovich was arrested the same night he allegedly hammered in Demarest’s skull. Police also found a notebook with his victims’ names listed in it, with addresses he found from the registry. Vukovich, 41, is also accused of robbing the three victims after his vengeful beatings.
On the website, users can find sex offenders and child kidnappers through a database by name, zip code, and city, or through a map with details of the person’s address and photos, along with conviction dates, and employer’s information.
