The details of the rape investigation involving the NFL's oldest cheerleader Molly Shattuck keep getting weirder. According to Delaware State Police, Shattuck's 15-year-old son helped Shattuck connect with the 15-year-old boy she allegedly raped.
Forty-seven-year-old Shattuck, who is estranged from her millionaire ex-CEO husband Mayo Shattuck, allegedly began a relationship with the 15-year-old victim after "spotting" him on Instagram. The relationship ended when she allegedly performed oral sex on him during a weekend Bethany Beach getaway with her kids. Now, court documents show that her son was instrumental in introducing his mom to the victim.
The relationship began at the end of May when Shattuck spotted photos of the teen on Instagram and posted a comment about them, according to information contained in an application for a search warrant.
After the victim replied thank you in a private message through Instagram, Shattuck's son sent the victim his mother's cell phone number, saying, "You should text my Mom, she is obsessed with you," according to court records.
The budding friendship continued through the summer and progressed from chats about daily life to provocative talk and text messages into trysts in the rear seat of Shattuck's Cadillac Escalade where the two would make out and grope each other, court records said. ...
The seduction continued from there to meetings in the Escalade at an AMC movie theater in Columbia, Maryland, and at a parking lot at a middle school in Mount Airy, Maryland.
Through the month of July, while the teen attended summer school, Shattuck picked him up for lunch "five or six times" and drove to a parking garage where they would "talk and eat and then get in the back of the car and kiss or make out," police said in court records. During one of these incidents, Shattuck allegedly touched the teen's penis.
"Between their encounters, Shattuck asked for pictures via text message" and he would send pictures of himself shirtless and one in his underwear, the victim told police.
After Shattuck allegedly performed oral sex on the boy during the Labor Day weekend beach getaway, she told him "if he wanted to have sex she would. The boy opted out. He decided to leave. At that point, she told him to come back later but he did not go back."
Shattuck, who made the Baltimore Ravens cheer squad when she was 38 years old, was indicted on nine counts yesterday including two counts of third-degree rape. Her lawyers will only say that this is a "difficult time" for all parties involved in the case.
Prior to these allegations, socialite Shattuck was building a healthy lifestyle brand called "Vibrant Living." Her website is now offline for "maintenance."
