Ira Task & William C. Byers Augusta

Ira Task, William Byers Augusta

Crimes: Pedophiles, Rape, Child Abuse, Conspiracy, Child Porn

It’s a good thing I took my blood pressure meds because learning about these two hellbeasts nearly made my head explode. I am simultaneously seething with rage about these monsters, and heartbroken for their known victim. Enough about me, let’s get on with the tale of two predatory pedophiles.

In July 2015, RCMP investigators in Toronto, Ontario, Canada were tipped off to a live-streamed video of a little boy being raped by an adult male. They contacted the US Department of Homeland Security who traced the source to North Middleton Township near Carlisle, Pennsylvania. They tracked it further to the home computer of one William C. Byers Augusta.

When investigators searched the Byers Augusta residence, they discovered furniture and bedding that were identical to those seen in the video. They saw a laptop computer positioned in the room that was the identical camera angle in the video. And on that computer was a trove of child porn.

Investigators found William C. Byers Augusta at his workplace, and *shock* he was wearing the same shirt as the pedo rapist in the video. Busted!!!

William C. Byers Augusta, 18, was charged with rape of a child, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse of a child, aggravated indecent assault of a child, corruption of minors, unlawful contact with a minor, creating child pornography, dissemination of child pornography, possession of child pornography, and criminal use of communication facility.

When this POS pedo was arrested, his iPhone was confiscated. It came as no shock, I’m sure, when the investigators discovered that the device contained more disgusting images and video. This particular video was of two men raping a little boy. One of the men gave the boy an inhalant of amyl nitrite to make him more amenable to being sexually assaulted. Amyl nitrite is only available with a prescription, and it causes a high.

Investigators traced the texts and phone records to Ira Task of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

Ira Task didn’t obviously appear to be a disgusting pedophile. He was 61 years old and had been married for 36 years. He worked in the catering industry, and not with children.

Regardless of appearing on the surface to be a normal guy, and regardless of his face not being shown in the video, Ira Task was definitely, positively the POS hellbeast who raped the little boy. His gold ring, the 20 moles on his thigh, and his penis ring were identical to those exposed in the video.

Ira Task had been in contact with William C. Byers Augusta by cell phone, Skype and in Internet chat rooms. Together these two vile pedophiles negotiated a sex date with a 6-year-old boy.

In July 2015, William Byers Augusta brought the little guy to Ira Task’s house. I presume the old pedo’s wife of 36 years wasn’t home. Together, both of the hellbeasts raped the boy after drugging him. If the horrific acts hadn’t been live-streamed on the Internet, the crime may have gone undiscovered.

There is possibly a third pedophile involved who recorded the video as the sexual assaults were taking place.

What has my blood really boiling, though, is not just that a young child was brutalized and raped. What has me more upset is that Ira Task was HIV positive and he wore no protection. The evil bastard has been HIV positive since 1994, and he didn’t give a single gawd damn if he infected the boy.

These two hellbeasts not only put the child through a monstrous sexual assault, they also put his very life in danger with both the drugging and the unprotected sex.

On March 8, 2016, Ira Task pled guilty to rape of a child, criminal conspiracy to commit rape of a child, criminal solicitation to commit sexual abuse of children, sexual abuse of children, aggravated assault, criminal use of a communication facility and corruption of minors. He pled no contest to criminal conspiracy to commit sexual abuse of children.

The old pedo bastard faced a max of 60 years in prison. At his sentencing Ira Task had the nerve to beg the judge for mercy. He wanted a short prison sentence and a long probation period so that he could care for his ailing wife.

Ira Task apologized to his wife and the boy, and said he hoped the victim would grow up to be strong and healthy. He admitted to being a sex addict, but then he claimed that this was the ONLY TIME he gave in to his sex addiction. Riiight.

I don’t believe that nonsensical claim, and I’m not alone. “That’s probably among the top five most ridiculous things I’ve ever heard in my time as a district attorney,” Cumberland County DA David Freed said. “There’s no way that this was the first time he’s done this.”

Incredibly, several friends and family members wrote letters of support for the evil, predatory pedophile. That shows just how well these perverts can fit into society and fool even their nearest and dearest. They are truly monsters in disguise.

Ira Task was sentenced by Judge Thomas Placey to 17 ½ to 40 years in state prison. He was also handed another sentence of 66 1/3 years of consecutive supervision, which means 8 more years in prison and probation time. The filthy old pedo’s going to die in prison, which is as it should be.

There are still federal charges pending against both Ira Task and William C. Byers Augusta.

We have still to learn the fate of William C. Byers Augusta. He has yet to go to trial. I’m putting my money on his never, ever seeing freedom again. I hope he and Ira Task wind up incarcerated for decades and then buried under the prison. And may they both suffer in every way, every day and every night for the rest of their lives.

The victim, bless his heart, is receiving extensive counseling and medical treatment. I hope and pray that he will grow up to have a happy, normal life untainted by the evil that was done to him.

    Disgusting what Happened

    Child Abuse is Evil

  2. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Totally Un Acceptable

    Namely For anyone Least of All in the UK to want a ” Debate ” on
    Softer Sentencing for Scum Child Abusers

    Sentences are a Sick Joke as they Are

    Child Abusers Deserve the Death Penalty by Formal Statute

    I want these 2 to really suffer in prison. I too wish all the very best to the poor victim


    Handcuff them in to a table in the prison mess hall. Announce unexpected 1 hour of chow time to the entire general population. Leave these two shitbags case file wide open on another table. “Accidently” leave rigid off the street plastic utensils around (inmates are skilled shanksmen). After the inmates file in, secure the doirs ro the chow hall as uaual, then go to the control pod, and turn off all monitors and speakers, the DVR, cameras and microphones that monitor the chow hall and play Candy Crush or whatever a bored prison guard does to pass the time. When the hour is up, have the inmates report back to their cells as normal, and send in a cleaning crew to clean up the mess. After the mess is cleaned up, switch the survellance equipment back on.

    Breaks my heart. I hope that child lives a beautiful, SAFE life.

    Wait a minute…Ira Task had a penis ring? A piercing on his penis? Or are we talking about the ring that men put on their member to keep it rigid? Either one, it is a disgusting image. And Bengalpuss, I agree with you and PLATESHUTOVERLOCK on how these 2 need to be handcuffed to a table along with general population…and a list of their convictions and crimes laying nearby for all to see. And I hope the victim can get the help and therapy he needs to live a normal, healthy life!

    Trivilization of Paedophilia is Effectively being an Accessory to
    Child Abuse it is Certainly being a Gormless Apologist for it

  9. TimeToFaceFacts says:

    Just to clarify, Amyl Nitrate is usually used to treat Angina Pectoris. However, it is illicitly used during sex to cause the contraction reflex to relax. It can be purchased online without a prescription. Its really messed up that they gave it to this kid, as it implies the severity of the assault. :(

    Any ” Play ” that Conspires to Undermine the already far too low Age of
    Consent Needs to be Banned

    There is No ” Love ” in a ” Teacher ” Conspiring against and Destroying
    the Innocence of a Children .

    That Creep is an Enemy of the Innocence of Childhood

    Death is too kind, they deserve the worst kind of torture followed by a painful death….!

  12. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    There is NO Justification for Grooming it is Evil

    Groomers including Scum trying to meet up with a Child to Abuse them should Get at Least a Life Sentence and Better Still the Death Penalty
    by Formal Statute

  13. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Child Abusers should be Banned from Having Children Fullstop

    Any Politician or Liberal Do Gooder that tries to have ” European Human
    Rights ” ” Allow ” a Paedophile to Adopt Children is Worse than
    Excrement and Scum themselves

    Robin is that the extent of your vocabulary? BTW are you related to one of these bottom feeders?

  15. painfullyKILLaLLpedoMonsters says:

    how did these monsters know/have access to the child/children? there was a 3rd pedo who filmed and in another report another child at that evil meet up assault at the old perps house. the way that diseased perps “friends & family” wrote letters to tne judge for a light sentence, I think his hag scumbag wife may have been home & helps/allows him to torture & rape kids. his friends should be moniteted also as they all may be perpetrating partners in crime. as for the victim-where & who are his parents-family? is he related to the perp? how did this occur? All children must be saved from such evil and investigating needs to be top notch nationally & internationally. what was the U.S. doing to let these videos slide by undetected??? Thank you Canada for catching the gross live stream and reporting it back. May the victims live a normal long healthy happy life totally uneffected negatively by these evil assaults.

    • CyberGhost says:

      I was wondering the same thing. Who in their right mind allowed their child to be in the presence of these monsters? Do parents not care who they leave their child/children with? Do they not care enough to look into the backgrounds of these monsters?

      Truly sad and very disturbing how children, so often, are being targeted and assaulted.

  16. CyberGhost says:

    It’s very scary to see news reports lately, of how some adults are killing, harming or sexually assaulting children.
    Something needs to be done to save our children from such horrible people who do these horrendous acts against them.

    I truly believe that those who harm children should be castrated (genitals, arms, legs etc.) so that they are never allowed to touch a child ever again.
    Some people may say that by doing that it would be inhumane.
    No! What’s inhumane is the way these monsters physically, sexually and emotionally harm and torture these innocent kids.
    It’s seriously time for lawmakers to legally introduce castration as a form of punishment against those predatorial perpetrators who do crimes against children.

    This is a very well written article. In the comments posted on Nancy Grace’s facebook page, one girl writes that she went to school with Byers-Augusta and that it is his little brother who he raped. They also have a sister, but it is unknown if any harm was ever done to her. She wrote that the mother has been in a coma for the past two years and that Byers-Augusta was in charge of taking care of his siblings.
    I would love to know how this little boy is doing now and if he is in a loving home out of harms way. My heart goes out to him.

    Absolutely disgusting and gut wrenching. All the best for this young victim as he tries to move past this horrible, horrible incident.

    I personally knew Will, which makes this story all the more shocking, and ultimately angering. He seemed like a really nice guy, and we had some decent conversations. We both sang in choir festivals during high school, and proudly represented Cumberland county. He seemed to have a lot of friends, and was well liked among his peers. This story however reveals his true colors, and I’m reviled.

    P.S, though my last name is also Byers, I am not related to Will at all. The last name is merely a coincidence. When I knew him, his name was William Hunter, so he probably had a name change of some sort.
