Chris Hansen says BOTDF’s Dahvie Vanity “is on our radar”
A year and a half on from Blood On The Dance Floor's Dahvie Vanity (aka Jesus David Torres) being accused of sexual assault of multiple women, several of which were underage, To Catch A Predator's Chris Hansen is saying he's investigating the musician.
Hansen says in a new video on his YouTube channel regarding his investigation into YouTube personality Onision that he's got Vanity on his radar as well.
Back in 2018, an exposé with MetalSucks detailed accounts of several women coming forward sharing their experiences with Torres, some of which used pseudonyms to protect their identities. The history of the allegations began in 2006 with some victims being as young as 13 at the time of their assaults.
Following the multiple reports on the situation, Blood On The Dance Floor's merch store on Big Cartel was pulled from their site.
Then, HuffPost wrote another article on the topic bringing the total number of potential victims from 16 to 21.
The majority of the allegations say that Torres forced them to perform oral sex. Of the women coming forward at the time, some said Torres wouldn’t let them stop until their “mouths bled”. The other seven women reported that Torres either molested or raped them.
Now, Hansen is confirming he's going to look into Vanity himself.
In the video, he talks about the ongoing investigation into Onision and mentions he is planning to look into Vanity.
“Dahvie Vanity is on our radar here at Have a Seat with Chris Hansen and I promise you I’ll take a really good, hard look at it. We’ll be tackling that topic as we move forward in all these investigations.”
You can see him mention this around the 40-minute mark of the video.
