Brent, Alabama Man Denied Bond in West Alabama Child Sex Abuse Case
Kenneth Shane Duncan, a Bibb County man who investigators believe may have committed up to 100 instances of sex crimes, was denied bond and will await court appearances from the Bibb County Jail.
Duncan, 20, was arrested on June 15 after surveillance footage showed him approaching a vehicle that was parked in the parking lot of Duncan Treasures, a Brent, Alabama thrift store owned by Duncan's parents. A young child was waiting in the vehicle while her mother shopped in the store.
"When the mother of the child returned from Duncan Treasures, the child stated that Mr. Duncan had touched her in her private area," stated a June 21 Brent Police Department Facebook post.
The mother immediately took the child to the Brent Police Department, where officers then launched an investigation. The Bibb County Sheriff's Department, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, the Joint Electronic Crime Task Force, Bibb County DHR and the Central Alabama Regional Child Advocacy Center all assisted in this case.
Investigators now believe Duncan has raped, sodomized and sexually abused multiple other victims in several Alabama cities, including in nearby Hale, Tuscaloosa and Jefferson Counties.
"It is estimated that Mr. Kenneth Duncan could have close to 100 counts of sex-related crimes once the investigation is concluded, including Sexual Abuse, Human Trafficking, Rape, and Sodomy," the Facebook post read.
Two other suspects, Jeremy Shane Duncan and Jerrie Michelle Duncan, are still in the Bibb County Jail on Aggravated Child Abuse, Child Abuse and Child Endangerment charges. Their bonds are set at $162,000 each.
The Tuscaloosa Thread initially reported on Duncan's arrest on June 21.
