From the Superior (Wisconsin) Telegram website:
Authorities are looking for a man accused of sexually assaulting two children in Superior.
A criminal complaint filed Oct. 28 in the Douglas County Clerk of Courts Office against Eric James Eskola, 50, alleges two counts of first-degree child sex assault-sexual contact with a child younger than 13.
A warrant for Eskola’s arrest was filed the same day after he failed to appear in court.
According to the criminal complaint:
Superior police found Eskola’s cell phone card contained deleted images, some of which appeared to be child pornography; many appeared to be pictures taken with the phone.
Eskola claimed the card came with the phone, which he purchased from Craigslist.
Detectives were able to identify numerous individuals from images on the phone, and those people indicated that Eskola was present at the events that were photographed.
A folder on the hard drive of Eskola’s home computer was also found to have images of child pornography depicting the sexual assault of two children. One series was taken with the same model cell phone as Eskola’s. Clothing worn by children in the photos was found at a Superior residence.
Anyone with information on Eskola’s whereabouts can contact the Superior Police Department or Douglas County Sheriff’s Office at 911, send an anonymous tip by text message by typing "spdtip" plus the tip on a cell phone and texting it to 847411 or leave a message on the Superior Police Department or Douglas County, WI. Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.
Thoughts? A few important notes first.
-Eskola may have been spotted recently in Duluth, Minnesota. Duluth borders Superior, Wisconsin. The following article spells his last name Escola but I'm assuming it's a type-o (although it should be noted any times fugitives use different variations of their last name as aliases) www.northlandsnewscenter.com/news/local/Authorities-search-for-man-accused-of-child-sex-assault-supposedly-seen-in-Duluth-368980191.html
-There is a popular retired journalist from Duluth, Minnesota named Eric Eskola. I do not know if the fugitive Eric Eskola is related, but it is important to note that even if the two are related, the journalist has not been accused of any wrong doing in regards to this case in any media articles. Also, from what I've read the journalist Eskola was well respected and very well-liked in Minnesota and made the state's broadcasting Hall of Fame. While readers from Minnesota would know better than me, based on that it should also be stressed that the charges against Eric James Eskola should not necessarily reflect on the journalist with the same name as a person whether the two are related or not. (I also stress this could still just be coincidence.) en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Eskola
In any case, these are very serious charges against Eric J. Eskola and he's probably still somewhere in Minnesota or Wisconsin in my opinion. Any readers from there, please keep your eyes open and share this page if you can.
