Peter M. Newhouse, BBA, BADip. (Owner and CEO)
150 Chatham Street, Unit 7
Hamilton, Ontario L8P 2B6
I am a recently retired police officer with the Hamilton Police Services. For years I have been investigating Peter Newhouse, father of two and child molester of many. Peter Newhouse is the one that got away.
Newhouse has been under investigation since 1997. Newhouse then came to our attention when complaints arose from those who Newhouse had visited selling encyclopaedias door to door.
Newhouse’s -mo- (Modus operandi) was to target young boys, single them out by offering free books. This was skillfully done while the parents were distracted looking at the encyclopaedias. Innocent video games based on the company’s encyclopaedias were given to the young boys, however, expertly inserted into the video games was an internet key allowing Newhouse to open up the home computer and chat with the children luring them into his twisted and sick world. Because this video games were ‘given’ by Newhouse and because these video games were not his, but the encyclopaedia companies, and it is believed that after the fact Newhouse planted the software program allowing him to open up a chat room with his victims, the cunning scheme perpetrated has too many loop holes for police to lay a charge. After it was discovered, Newhouse quickly moved on and entered into the home security business.
The home security business allows Newhouse the opportunity to enter the homes of his victims a multiple of times, while installing the camera’s and door alarms and his real and only purpose is to scope out where children sleep, play and eat. Some of Newhouse’s more sophisticated security systems tie into
the home’s PC allowing Newhouse to watch on-line the daily goings on. As a voyeur, he now is able to satisfy his sick and twisted behavior.
If Newhouse or anyone from his company Perimeter Security located in Hamilton Ontario, I urgently encourage you to change companies, especially if they are monitoring you 24/7. Also change your door locks, remember Newhouse was in your house, he has the key code, and protect your children at all costs.
Below, I have highlighted some of the identifying markers of a Pedophile, but before you read these, go to Perimeter Security video, and see for yourself just how deviant Newhouse can be.
If you notice Newhouse comes across smooth, unassuming. His attire is none threatening and what does he speak of first? Dawson and Mathew his boys, and he uses a ‘Lego’ model of a home. Now as a adult, does that appeal to you, of course not, it’s rather adolescent, however, if your boys were watching this on TV, they would think, how cool.
Newhouse isn’t selling security products; he is selling himself to your children as a trusted cool security guy.
What do Dawson and Mathew have to do with Newhouse’s sales pitch? Nothing, other than that is where Newhouse’ brain goes; he is subconsciously luring your children. Newhouse is wired that way. Anyone ever dealing with him will find that he rarely speaks of his wife; however his children are always a topic of discussion. Why, it is to bring your defenses down so that you volunteer information about your kids.
Tips To Catch A Pedophile
These predators are excellent actors. To catch one in his or her “act”, you have to know what you’re looking for.
Tip #1: Watch His Behavior
• Is he interested more in kids than adults?
• Does he offer to baby-sit or take the kids to give you a break?
• Does he work closely with kids?
• Is he especially affectionate toward kids?
• Does he have activities with kids when parents are not invited or involved?
As a pedophile, he is drawn to children. He places himself in a position with easy access and trust - like working at schools, churches or scouts - so he can choose his targets.
Then the pedophile “courts” his latest victim– buying her gifts, taking her on excursions, anything that makes her feel special – to gain friendship and trust. It works pretty well.
Pedophiles are also good listeners. Once he learns his victim’s strengths and weaknesses, he can toy with her emotions - building self-esteem while he plays on her biggest loves or fears.
To listen to and manipulate a child are elements of the profile of a pedophile.
Tip #2: Watch His Relationships
• Is he single, not interested in dating people his age or dating at all?
• Is he more interested in his girlfriend or her kids?
• Is he married but more affectionate with kids than his spouse?
• Is he married to someone with no sexual expectations?
A key distinction in the profile of pedophiles is his sexual interest in kids... but this may not be his only sexual interest. He may even be married. As in Newhouse’s case. But consider his partner.
If she is a pushover or a powerhouse, she may not have any need for intimacy. Marriage is an excellent disguise.
And if he really is sexually interested in his wife... marriage tends to produce more victims – more kids.
If he finds a particularly needy partner, he can threaten to leave her if she won’t help him molest or get his next victim. After a while, she also becomes addicted to abusing. She becomes a genuine predator herself. Many female child molesters emerge this way.
Tip #3: Watch His Circle of Friends
• Does he identify better with kids than people his age? (remember the video from his security company! )
• Does he have lots of friends who are kids but not many adult friends?
• Do his friends (who are kids) fall within a particular age group?
All pedophiles are interested in kids, but each has his favorite flavor. He usually has a circle of friends within the age group he prefers.
Here is something to note: The older the victims are, the more the pedophile leans toward a specific gender. The younger the children, the less gender matters.
Notice if he lavishes affection on one gender over the other within his young group of friends. This may be a clue as to his preference.
Tip #4: Watch Your Child
• Do you notice a sudden change in her typical behavior?
• Does she have sudden sleep problems or nightmares?
• Does she draw pictures about sex?
• Does she do sexual things or act sexual with other kids?
• Does she suddenly fear people or places she didn’t fear before?
These may be tell-tale signs that your child is currently under attack.
Notice the child’s apparel. Does he or she have torn or stained underwear? Or suddenly wear layers of clothes?
Sometimes you can tell by noticing differences in your child’s body. Difficulty walking or sitting, bruises in the genital area, or stomach pains and problems could be warnings. And of course, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) or pregnancy are more obvious signs.
These tips outline the general characteristics you find in the profile of a pedophile. Study these. Take note of the people around you and your kids.
If you suspect it, report it. You owe it to your child. Call your local police station and ask how to report a child predator. You should be able to report them anonymously.
Be prepared with any evidences you may have – names, dates, times, places, victims, anything that may help the investigation. If you notice internet assaults on a child, print the offensive online chat.
Better to investigate an innocent person than to let a real monster roam free.
Remember, 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 6 boys have sexual contact with an adult before the age of 18.
I cannot tell you how many times I hear on the news that the neighbor of an arrested predator suspected something, heard something, noticed something… but shrugged their shoulders and said, “Eh, live and let live.”
No. Report it. Please.
It is not only your moral obligation, but your legal obligation. There are programs in place to protect those who report abuse.
You may save more than your own children.
Hats off to the OPP
