Washington County authorities say "Canterbury Cannibal" not a threat to public

Days after reports surfaced that Dale S. Bolinger, the man dubbed by the British media as the "Canterbury Cannibal", was living in Blair, the 62-year-old is now being held in the Washington County Jail, according to the online inmate list.

An American citizen, Bolinger spent time in jail in England for sex offenses for plotting to rape and murder a 14-year-old girl.

Bolinger is being held in the Washington County Jail, but authorities said they could not say why he was there and he has not been charged with a crime.

"The sheriff and I have been closely involved with the Bolinger situation", Washington County Attorney Scott Vander Schaaf said in a statement.

Last week, he registered as a Nebraska sex offender and listed his address at a home near Blair.

Neighbors said last week that they were anxious about the safety of neighborhood children.

"It's making my heart race. It's scary, considering I have a small daycare, and now I really have to watch and keep doors locked", Kasper said.

Washington County Sheriff's Department is actively patrolling the area, and have done one compliance check with Bolinger.

Neighbors said they want people to know what's going on and want him out.

He arrived in the Blair area earlier this month and registered January 4 as a sex offender living on Todd Drive in Blair.
