Brittany Fish Suspect Arrested
Last Update: 4/23/2005 12:50:34 PM

32-year-old Kevin Schaus of Syracuse is under arrest, charged with first-degree kidnapping of 5-year-old Brittany Fish. Brittany was abducted one year ago this weekend. Schaus was picked up for questioning Friday morning by Onondaga County sheriff's deputies, who had learned about the abuse of a local 4-year-old. Police say Schaus confessed to the crime while being questioned in the case.

Onondaga County District Attorney Bill Fitzpatrick says Schaus will be charged in as many as four abduction/abuse cases, including Brittany's. Schaus is expected to be arraigned in both Syracuse and Van Buren courts today.

Very thankful for the arrest, but an aweful lot of concern from someone that spreads so much disease on here!

What I can't understand, however, is why are the media reporting the girl's name. As the victim of a sex crime, shouldn't they have kept her name confidential?

I worry that no one is doing Brittany any favors by reporting her name so prominently in this.

cause when she went missing last year - they released her name - after that is when they found out about the abuse

i dont agree with them repeating her name now though - they could have just said in teh news that they cought a suspected kidnapper and child abuser

Brittany Fish's name came out because she was considered a missing child all missing children's names come out during the Amber Alerts. it had nothing to do with her being a sexual victim. Just like with Jessica Lunsford et al.
