An Oklahoma teenager has confessed to raping and molesting HIV-positive orphans while volunteering on a humanitarian mission trip to Kenya.
According to court records, 19-year-old Matthew Durham confessed to raping several young girls, and forcing some boys to perform oral sex on him while making other kids watch.
Durham was a volunteer with the Upendo Children’s Home, run by a Christian Charity, in Nairobi, Kenya’s capital. He volunteered at the orphanage four times over the last two years, and on his last trip between April 30 and June 17, 2014, feds say he requested to stay at the orphanage with the children in a “overflow bunk” instead of offsite accommodations.
Durham was arrested at his family’s home in Oklahoma and was held without bond after facing a judge on July 18. Durham faces another preliminary hearing on August 1. If convicted, he faces life in prison. He could also face charges in Kenya.
