An investigation by Townhall has uncovered a disturbing case of abuse and exploitation involving a gay couple in Georgia. William Dale Zulock, 33, and Zachary Jacoby Zulock, 35, have been charged with molesting their two adopted sons and using them to record child pornography. The couple also allegedly pimped their young children out to members of a local paedophile ring.
The investigation revealed that the men used social media to prostitute their sons, now 11 and 9 years old. Hunter Clay Lawless, 27, told investigators that Zachary invited him “multiple times” to take part in sexually abusing the boys. Lawless also claimed that Zachary sent him multiple messages on Snapchat, including one that allegedly read, “I’m going to f— my son tonight. Stand by,” along with images of himself sexually abusing the 11-year-old.
The Zulocks, who worked as a government worker and banker respectively, were indicted in August 2022 on charges of incest, aggravated sodomy, aggravated child molestation, felony sexual exploitation of children, and felony prostitution of a minor. They adopted the children from a Christian special-needs adoption agency.
This case is a tragic betrayal of trust, not only by the adoptive parents, but also by the institution that placed these vulnerable children in their care. It raises serious questions about the screening and oversight of adoptive parents, particularly those who identify as LGBTQ+. The victims in this case are the innocent children who were subjected to unspeakable abuse and exploitation. They deserve justice and support as they begin the long process of healing.
