News: Stolen Animatronic Clown Found In Sex Offender's Home After Seven Years

I'm not sure which one of them got the worst of this deal.
Stolen Animatronic Clown Found In Sex Offender's Home After Seven Years

WICHITA, Kan., Feb. 19 (UPI) -- Police in Kansas announced they have recovered a $10,000 organ-playing animatronic clown seven years after it was stolen from a defunct amusement park.

Wichita police said Louie the clown, the animatronic organ-playing mascot of Joyland Amusement Park, went missing about seven years ago and was officially reported stolen in 2010.

Investigators said the case was kept alive by social media interest in Louie's plight and officers served a search warrant Tuesday on the home of Damian Mayes, a convicted sex offender and a former employee of the park, which was shuttered in 2004.

Mayes is currently serving a prison sentence for aggravated indecent liberties with a child and aggravated criminal sodomy and is not eligible for parole until 2028.

  1. I don't think I'd want that clown back now.

    Not that I'd want some freaky animatronic tool of the devil anyway. Shudder...

  2. Oh my word. I watched the video of the clown at the link.That was so creepy! It makes sense that a creepy sex offender stole it. What doesn't make sense is why would anyone ever pay $10,000 for such a freaky thing in the first place!!
