Case Summary

2023-07-23: Calvin McGee was arrested this morning in Boise, Idaho and accused of rape of a minor, FLOODLIT has learned. We welcome your information tips.


FLOODLIT has obtained a redacted excerpt of a James City County, Virginia police report regarding the incident with the missionary in Virginia. Our sources have reviewed police bodycam footage and told us they were deeply disturbed by the actions of this individual.

Calvin McGee is confirmed to be the name of the missionary involved. He is from Boise, Idaho.

While serving as a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Calvin McGee (age 20, male) was confronted on November 3, 2022, by a team of online predator hunters regarding explicit online exchanges with an individual he believed to be an 11-year-old female.

During the confrontation, McGee allegedly admitted to having initiated contact with the target, and despite believing her to be only 11 years old, made sexual advances and requests, including soliciting sexually explicit pictures and video, and inviting her to meet in person.

The confrontation was posted online at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QFgc1PWaek in December 2022, by the Predator Poachers group (also known as NVCAP).

Details provided in the online video have been independently confirmed to be accurate representations of what occurred. McGee was read his Miranda rights (but not arrested at the time) and again admitted to the solicitation of the images of a female he believed to be 11 years old through online platforms, using his missionary cell phone. Because the decoy victim was out-of-state at the time of the alleged incident, the matter has been referred to federal authorities for further review and investigation. The investigation remains ongoing, and FLOODLIT is not aware at this time whether McGee continues his service as a missionary.
