A suburban Philadelphia handyman accused of serial child rape is facing additional charges involving a sixth child.
Bucks County authorities said Monday that 58-year-old William Charles Thomas has been charged with 26 additional counts. Falls Township police say Thomas raped the victim when she was a child in the 1990s. Police interviewed the woman in late January.
Thomas, of Morrisville, was already charged with dozens of crimes involving five children. Prosecutors have said he kept a “perverse shrine” in his trailer — 1,000 pairs of used girl’s underwear — and documented his crimes in hundreds of disturbing, graphic images and writings.
He has said he “never inflicted any pain on a child.”
He remains jailed pending trial.
