    Default Gene Simmons' L.A. home searched by Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force




    Gene Simmons' L.A. home searched by Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, KISS rocker 'extremely cooperative'

    LAPD officers searched the home of rocker Gene Simmons on Thursday, but neither the KISS bassist nor any members of his family are considered suspects in the investigation, authorities said.

    Officers from the department’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force entered the Benedict Canyon home near Beverly Hills — featured in the reality show “Gene Simmons: Family Jewels” — serving a warrant, police said.

    Lt. John Jenal said the detectives involved want to emphasize that the 65-year-old Simmons and his family were "extremely cooperative" and none of them are suspected of a crime.

    The Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force searched the home of Gene Simmons.

    "Today (Aug. 20, 2015) members of the Los Angeles Police Department visited Mr. And Mrs. Simmons at their home to discuss a crime that may have occurred on their property last year while Mr. Simmons was away on tour with KISS," a rep for Simmons said in a statement.

    “Neither Mr. Simmons nor any member of his family is a person of interest in the investigation and they are cooperating fully with the investigation. At this time, the police have requested that Mr. Simmons and his family not discuss the investigation publicly so as not to compromise it."

    Wife of the rock star, Shannon Tweed-Simmons, tweeted out a statement thanking everyone for their support while LAPD looked into the crime.

    "Thanks for your support," she wrote. "We couldn't be more horrified that someone used our residence for such heinous crimes. Law enforcement is on it."

    So, would this be like a housesitter that was using the place while Gene's family went on vacation? Something like that?

    It's scary to think that someone that you trust is in your home while you're not there using your traceable equipment to download illegal images that will no doubt come back to the homeowner. The fact that Gene wasn't home when the incident occurred and the police statement backing that up is probably the only reason why this story isn't bigger than it is right now.

    That's how the Fogle story seemed to start, though. They were actually investigating another guy, and Fogle was being cooperative.

    How do you knoqw he wasnt there? All that has been released is that the Simmons family isnt suspected of a crime. It could be a house sitter, but equally it coyld be a friend using the wifi or someone completely unknow piggybacking on their wifi..... I am sure there are more alternatives too.

    They released that Gene was off on tour. I've read that several times.

    I read earlier that an old friend of Gene's, Stephen Coronel, was arrested last year at his home in SC for having child pornography on his home computer. He played on several KISS tracks years ago.

    I thought they'd want to ask Pete Townshend his opinion but Gene was away, so okay.
