These assaults occurred between September of 1995 and April of 1996, in Clackamas County, Oregon. Silsbee knew each of the victims, having either babysat for them or taken them to various events.

Silsbee was charged with first degree sodomy, first degree sexual abuse, endangering the welfare of a minor, and first degree unlawful sexual penetration in a local arrest warrant in Clackamas County, Oregon, on July 24, 1996.

A federal arrest warrant charging him with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution was issued on September 19, 1996, in the United States District Court, District of Oregon, Portland, Oregon.

The 56-year-old, who has ties to Arizona, also goes by the names Bill Lee and Bill Wayne. He's 6-foot-2, weighs 270 pounds, and has brown hair and blue eyes. He's worked as a security guard, tax preparer, school bus driver, warehouseman, and for temp agencies.

The FBI reports that Silsbee is fluent in sign language, has previously shown interest in nudist activities, including prior membership in the American Sunbathing Association, and is purported to be an active member of the Adventist Church.
