Though he was only on Wikipedia for the month of July, 2004 as Marlais (aka Jon Schillaci), Wikipedia has been desperate to obfuscate that Schillaci edited the online encyclopedia because he was doing so while hiding from the US government in a small village in Michoacán, Mexico. He was running from a trial, his second time in court being accused of child molestation, and he was in the middle of a nearly nine year dissapearing act.
Jon Savarino Schillaci (b. 1971) was a computer specialist, allegedly had a master's degree in the humanities and speaks Spanish, French, and German (fluency in each unknown). In 1989 he and another man had sex in Schillaci's home with twin 11-year-old boys to whom they had shown child pornography. As the disgusting icing on the cake, Schillaci videotaped the sex, then tried to sell the tape to a porno bookstore for five hundred dollars. They turned him in, and after a quick trial in 1990 he was sentenced to ten years. He was nineteen years old. Jon Schillaci left prison in 1999, and was "adopted" by a family in Deerfield, New Hampshire. They knew about his crime, but they thought he had reformed, and they were willing to let the twenty-eight year old live in their house. Big mistake; he molested their five-year-old son while giving him piano lessons in October 1999. To top that, the family computer was packed with images of child pornography. Jon Schillaci fled the country to avoid appearing in court, and a warrant was made for his arrest.
Online in Mexico
He was a hero to the online "boylover" community; when he made it down to San José de Garcia in the central Mexican estado (state) of Michoacán de Ocampo, they sent him money and "moral" support. He became the administrator of BoyChat, a pedophile hangout, in 2003; his handle was Dylan Thomas, a fact that makes me throw up a little in my mouth. He also allegedly ran an Internet radio show under that name. We have no information on what Schillaci did for money in Mexico, probably it was low-key and menial. He did use assumed names like "Jon Willis" and "Christopher Keegan", among others. In the summer of 2004 he became Marlais on Wikipedia but he first edited under the IPs 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206; their edit histories are here and there. All of it revolved around pedophila and coming up with in-Wikipedia justifications for pedophile behavior. During that month in 2004, Schillaci as Marlais had a talkpage discussion on a "boylover"article with noted pedophile creeps Zanthalon and Moon light shadow.
During all of his time in Mexico as he moved south to his final digs in San José de Garcia he was having sex with male children, but he was smart enough this time to not film it. He did, however, show up for an ABC News taping on a Michoacán beach as Dylan Thomas to comment on the then-upcoming 2005 Michael Jackson trial; ABC did not use the footage. In 2007 the FBI made Schillaci one of the Ten Most Wanted; a year later he was finally nailed by FBI agents and Mexican Federales in San José de Garcia. The evil-exposed.com website (now defunct) and Perverted-Justice group had begun hunting him in 2007 and they quickly tracked him down, giving the FBI their information. After a quick trial, Marlais-Dylan Thomas was once again behind bars, this time for the bulk of his life, and even if he is paroled in the 2020s he will be on a watchlist the rest of his mortal existence.
Some creepy sentiments Dylan Thomas made on BoyChat in 2008:
The fact of the matter is, we hold all the cards. We (speaking on the broad scale) have sex with their children. And when they arrest us and put us in jail, a zillion more of us are still having sex with their children. And when they get us in therapy and "cure" us and teach us how not to "offend," a zillion more of us still slip through the cracks and still have sex with their children.
And there's not a damn thing they can do about it.
For every pedophile they arrest and put in jail, ten more are fucking their children.
I love it when the bloggers say, "They want us to believe they're harmless, but look, so-and-so got arrested!" That just shows how clueless they are. We are not harmless. We never claim to be harmless. That's their own wishful thinking. The truth is, they will never be rid of us. Their children will never be "safe" (as they define "safe"). We are the most dangerous people in the world, and there isn't a damned thing they can do about it.
When the mental health professionals come to me asking for my help in dealing with society's problem, I will be at their disposal. But when they talk about trying to solve the "pedophile" problem, my only message is this: You can't. You've already lost. Ask Ernie Allen and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children: more of us are having sex with your kids than ever before. All your money, all your laws, all your daytime talk shows, and all your therapy: worthless. There are more of us than ever; you're fighting a hydra. Cut off one head and two more spring up in its place.
The website wants nothing to do with Jon Savarino Schillaci; members were far more concerned with the non-question of whether or not he considered himself gay than telling the truth about Marlais, who was finally blocked in 2009 by John Vandenberg. There is no mention of Schillaci-as-Marlais in the article on him, and if I didn't have the information I was provided I would not know about the connection at all, it is hidden that well. By doing this they have become his accomplice.
