Justice Served: Michigan’s ‘Rape Me Elmo’ Home Inspector Convicted

Oakland County house inspector Kevin Wayne VanLuven, 61, of Clarkston, Mich., was charged with indecent exposure and malicious destruction of property under $200 after he was caught on a nanny cam pleasuring himself with an Elmo doll on March 12, 2021.

The sexual assault of Elmo took place when Jaida Dodson, 22, and her husband hired VanLuven to inspect their home as they prepared to sell it. VanLuven and a real estate agent arrived at the house and the Dodsons left.

When he finished with his vile attack, VanLuven returned Elmo to the spot where he found him—in a child’s bedroom.
