Joshua MeasrochCobb County, GA – A 13-year-old girl missing for a month was found hiding in the room of a 21-year-old man she’d met over the Internet.

Cobb County College student Joshua Measroach, 21, apparently used social media to convince a 13 year old girl to come with him after communicating online for three months. On May 2nd, Joshua drove the 50 mile distance to the girl’s Newton County home to pick her up and take her with him back to his room in Cobb County. The incident was initially thought to be a runaway situation as several of the girl’s personal effects were taken from her room.

The girl’s parents helped police with the investigation noting she was an avid user of social media websites. It’s undoubtedly through her online activities that police were able to find the girl holed up with Joshua Measroach. It’s there the girl and Joshua had engaged in various sexual acts during her month-long stay. It’s unclear whether she was being held against her will, but considering she went willingly with him, I have a feeling she was there on her own accord – at least initially.

The pervert was arrested and charged with the following felonies: rape, aggravated child molestation, child molestation and enticing a child for indecent purposes. He was also charged with misdemeanor interference with custody. He will also be facing charges in Newton County where the girl was abducted, according to Deputy Cortney Morrison with the Newton County Sheriff’s Office.

On a side note, I apologize for my prolonged absence from the site; I had an unexpected, serious illness that landed me in the ICU for a few weeks. I pulled through and like it or not, I’m back!

  • GA?! O_o uhh, feeling sick… o_O

  • Nice try Georgia.

  • If the Big Boss Man were still patrolling Cobb County, this never would have happened.

  • Good! Charges in BOTH counties! Fuck yes, fucking asshole!!!!

  • Rachel Ann

    And to think I just found out that I’m about to have a little girl. This shit makes me more paranoid than a speed freak on a two week bender. What the unholy hell was this girl thinking? She should be glad she didn’t end up in a ditch somewhere gasoline soaked and set aflame. I hope someone explains to her how terribly wrong her actions were and not put all the blame on Mr. Cock-eyed up there.

  • sugarpie

    But she was in love. And now everyone just ruined her life. It’s not fair… Have no fear little one, your pervy boyfriend will be back on the streets in about 6 months.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    Stuff like this is why parents need to TALK to their children and keep tabs on their internet usage. It’s not that hard to create an illusion of privacy while keeping tabs on what your kids do.

    And Anastasia, being in the ICU is no excuse for not writing. Don’t they have wifi at every hospital now?

    Seriously, though, I’m glad that you’re well and back with us!

  • Curlykate910

    Joshua Measroach…. me is roach…. yup sounds about right

  • Sam

    Wait, what? You are the parent of a 13yo girl, who you know spends a lot of time on social media, and you don’t keep track of that shit?? I guess i can see where the girl got her common sense.

  • WarriorArtemis

    That was my 1st though too!

  • Freak!

  • Freak!

  • CT

    At first I thought this read that I just found out I hid a little girl.

  • CT

    When you say that he took her to his room – do you mean his room at his parents house? Why did’t her parents have access to her FB account? She was only 13 after all. Has she come out and said she didn’t want to be there? There appear to be way too many blanks that need to be filled in in this story. Welcome back, Anastasia.

  • Jeeze… I hid a kitten in my room for only a week before I got caught…

  • techsupp0rt

    That’s what you get for trying to be your kid’s ‘friend’ and trying to give them privacy on the internet. Be a damn parent, and be responsible for your offspring.

    Pro tip: if they are asking for online privacy, it’s because they’re doing something you would not approve of.

  • Justagirl

    Welcome back, Anastasia. Glad you’re feeling better! <3

  • I kept track on my 14 year old on FB and she still ran away with her “boyfriend” Although he said he was 16 on Facebook, he was really 20. When they found her the cops and DA said they couldn’t charge him with anything b/c she left willing with him. And in my back woods state of Alabama, since she consented to the sex they didn’t charge him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • weneedhelpnow

    I find it disturbing that so many comments lay blame on the 13 yr old and don’t bother to bash the adult who lured her. Even the article reports she went of her “own accord”. She’s 13, people. Yes, her parents were ignorant and she was stupid. But without the adult perv none of this would’ve happened. Seems to be a lot of blaming the victim.

  • concernedmomkentucky

    My stepdaughter lives full time with us. I have all the passwords for her accounts. And check them ALL THE TIME! She also never knows when we are going to check her iphone or ipad. She is 16 and I will be doing this until she graduates highschool and turns 18. And she never complains becuase she understands why I’m doing it. I trust her but I don’t trust the world or the fact that she has an innocent 16 year old mind.
    At 13 she wouldn’t have been allowed to have an media sites or ipad/iphone etc… I partially plan her parents for this. 13 is a baby with hormones and our jobs as parents is to protect them while they are growing up. Not just set them out into the world with no safety nets or help.

  • Texas Ranger

    Gee, to think my college days were filled with fun with college AGED girls….dude must be a loser if he opted for a 13 year old over all the drunk no-panty-wearing Bi-curious gals ready for action anywhere/anytime in the college that I remember…. I feel sorry for the dude….NOT.

  • Texas Ranger

    True enough….but I guess you COULD go back and say if his daddy would have pulled out just a smidge earlier….this story would have never happened at all….

  • I had all passwords also, and low and behold she still acted a fool. Went out of the window in the middle of the night and was gone. When we did find her the cops and DA did not charge him b/c she left on her own, and in my back woods state it is not against the law to run away and since she consented to the sex they couldn’t do anything. She is 14 and he is 20, she didn’t have a cell phone and would delete everything. When I locked down all computers, she would go to friends houses, when I grounded her and her dad whooped her she ran.

  • Buffettgirl

    So – Georgia, WTF? You tryin’ to give Flori-duh a run for it’s freak money??? As previously disclosed only yesterday, I used to volunteer at a hospital in Alpharetta GA, I was able to do that as I lived in east Cobb County, GA! (or east Snobb County to the locals) This Dreamin’ Demon version of a walk down memory lane is getting hella disturbing!

    Welcome back Anastasia! Glad you’re feeling better now!

  • Whoa! ICU? I see nothing is gonna take you out.

  • zay

    13yr-olds shouldn’t be “avid users of social media.” Huge fail by the parents plain and simple.

  • TruTruTrue

    Get off FL’s tip. LOL!

  • Buffettgirl

    Yippee! D-v love in the mornin’!

  • newstarshipsmell

    I wonder what sort of work you can get with a major in perv and a minor in idiot.

  • G.I.R.L.

    Really? But she’s 14; that should’ve been an immediate statutory rape case. Not to mention, she thought he was 16.

  • more of the f’d up hit parade. terminal bastards

  • tkaz

    We live in a different time. Stranger Danger is now playing the other side of the Xbox or they’re telling us we’re beautiful on Facebook. We just have to teach them safety in new ways now.

  • tkaz

    My cousin is 13, her parents had her at 15 & 16. Her grandmother is raising her & she’s in the library all summer on Facebook. It makes me cringe. She keeps posting about true love & finding love….when I was 13 I was barely out of Barbie dolls. I just see her naivete leading to a dangerous path.
    My 14 yr old has limited access as we don’t have a lot of working computers currently. I just…I don’t see how people cannot see the danger when it’s literally in the news EVERY DAY.

  • Evan

    well hows your daughter now? still a handful? if so, that’s more than Jason Dunn can handle.

  • Evan


  • Rachel Ann

    A Catholic priest? Or does his interest in girls disqualify him?

  • That should have read she WAS 14 she is now 16 and yes still a hand full!!! She is gone again, and I have done everything but hog tie her down. I don’t know if she was born wild or what, my husband and I are middle of the road parents. We have rules and curfews and expect our kids to show respect to us and others and they will get respect. My oldest and youngest children do not give a bit of trouble. I am at a loss, and I might add the police DO NOTHING to help find her b/c they say she ran on her own!!!

  • Yeah, that is what I thought. But some stupid law in Alabama says 14 and older can make that decision. Medical consent here is also 14 meaning they can go to any health department and get what ever they want with out telling parents. I have leaned much about the juvenile laws of Alabama and they suck!!! She runs and they will not help me with anything. So here we are stuck and she has every POS helping her.

  • Buffettgirl

    Since she was 14 and he was 20 it should have been rape in the first degree according to Alabama law… Back when i was in high school in Georgia the age of consent was 14 (1984-1986 were the years I was there)

  • Parrot Toes

    When I was 13, I used to drag a suitcase with my barbie dolls and their clothes with me when I went babysitting. Barbie was having an affair on Ken with G.I. Joe. She consumed a lot of my time to keep this affair going. It was exhausting.

  • Really??? Well I guess our DA and cops and stupid then. B/C they would not do a thing about it!!!! She is 16 now and still a hand full


    hope she’s not PREGGARS!

  • Buffettgirl

    I wish you much luck – it’s hard to fight the good ol’ boy police system in the South, no matter what the laws are… Hopefully she turns around soon for you!

  • onlyme356

    Soon as my kid messed up by browsing adult sites she was never allowed access to her computer alone again. You need the computer? Here it is, in the living room. What do you need it for? Oh, not homework? Okay, you can’t use it. She’s never been allowed to have a social media profile either.

  • onlyme356

    This is just a suggestion and please don’t take it personal because I have a teen myself, but have you ever tried to take her to see a therapist or psychiatrist? You first want to rule out medical problems or mental illness. She could be suffering from bipolar or, she can also be acting out due to trauma. It’s not always so cut and dry. There may be more going on there. I thought I knew everything about my daughter, when she dropped a bomb on me one day and revealed something very significant. You might have more than just a wild teen on your hands. It’s usually something more.

  • MyHovercraftIsFullofEels

    Yay! Look what i have to look forward to in 6-8 years. Mine is too smart for her own good and totally naive evebn at 8. sigh….

  • Jessica Diane Hubbard

    I am reading the laws now and no law in Alabama says that sexual consent is legal under the age of 16.

  • 18th40

    I warned Ken about that little tramp.

  • Kat

    Or his mum swallowed.

  • Whatevn

    I was mature at 13. no Barbies for me.

    ..I had moved on to Dragon Ball Z action figures.

  • She has been diagnosed bipolar, and a chemical imbalance. She was going to be hospitalized this last time she ran. Here in Alabama the medical consent is 15 so if she doesn’t want to take her meds I can not make her!!!!!!!!!!! Things are backwards I know. She has a few people who are helping her, but the cops say well she left on her own when/if we come across her we will pick her up. They also told me let’s hope she breaks the law so they can hold her!!! As bad as this sounds I pray she can not have babies right now b.c I do not want her to end up another story!!!! And believe me we are looking, every time we get close she moves. It amazes me the people that help her!!

  • DeweyCheatam

    Title 14, section 399, Alabama Code 1940. Age of consent for sexual intercourse is indeed 16. Before 1915, it was 14 in Alabama!

  • JohnQknowitall

    I am glad you are back and at least healthy enough to get back to an activity that you enjoy.

    I am always dumbfounded when people living in what we romanticize to the be “the best years of their lives” engage in activities that will have lifelong negative reprecussions. The male is now branded as a “sexual predator” and I sincerely hope that he will not only recognize the errors of his acts and successfully treated for ephebophilia (?) and returned safely to society. A young girl leaving her home for a perceived to be endless sexual relationship with an adult male is troubling and I wonder how many “issues” back home. Her parents were concerned enough not to give up the search for her, so I again hope there is the potential for a healthy life ahead of her.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    This is Alabama we’re talking about here. :p

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    Sounds like you and your family need to move to a state where LE actually gives a damn about kids.

  • tkaz

    Me too!! Not at 13…but the year before I bought my last Barbie. Barbie & the Rockers…circa 1988.
    I had 2 Kens. One was my moms from like 964 & he was missing and arm so he was dubbed sickly. The other one was Malibu Ken from about 1980. We only had one handsome Ken so we fought over him. There were affairs, pregnancies, death….seriously, I was allowed to watch too much daytime tv.
    Also, whomever had the pregnant Barbie had to give up all their heels. Only sneakers or barefoot if you got knocked up. We were ruthless.

  • Parrot Toes

    You keep saying “we” like you were OK with sharing your barbie time. My little sister was NOT allowed to play with my barbies or with our mutual barbie stuff (a magnificent 4 story house with a working elevator and fully furnished with working appliances – yeah, be jelly) while I was playing with them, which was ALL the fucking time. My barbie time was seriously PG-13. Boom-chicka-wow-wow!

  • tkaz

    Haha! Well..I was an only child for 9 yrs. The “we” is a neighbor girl. She was the only one on the block who could play “right”. I only asked her to play because the other girls never brought any drama or scandal with them.
    I had the dream house & townhouse…mainly ugly 80s colors but the townhouse was PINK!
    My daughter never got into Barbies. 🙁

  • Parrot Toes

    My rents sold all my barbie stuff in a garage sale in my late teens. I’m still traumatized over it. Neither of my girls really played with barbies either (they must get it from their fathers side). I don’t give a fuck though, I would still be playing with that shit if my rents weren’t so cruel.

    Am I the only one who thinks she should be punished too if she went willingly? She knows better just like him. I see so many girls that age in my area looking for men to sleep with. Not all these girls are innocent.
