Dr. Earl B. Bradley Turned His Pediatrics Practice into a Child Rape Center

It seems Bradley was a calculating predator. His exam rooms at BayBees Pediatrics, a solo practice, had Disney themes to make kids comfortable. But the Lewes, Delaware doctor wasn't exactly interested in the health of his patients.
Police were first alerted earlier this month when a 2-year-old girl told her mom that the doctor had hurt her during a visit. A subsequent investigation found scores of videotapes Bradley kept to chronicle his assaults. And Bradley, it seems, was a particularly vicious creep.
In one video he's shown raping a 2-year-old with a "violently enraged expression on his face," according to police records. A detective described it as "one of the most violent and brutal attacks on a child of any age." In another, he's seen raping a kid who twice tried to run from him.
So far detectives have discovered at least 16 victims dating back to August, with perhaps dozens more unidentified.
During a raid on his office, police found six cameras and seized a computer. They also found cameras, tapes and photos at the doctor's home.
