BEAVER COUNTY, Pa. - Residents of a Beaver County neighborhood are concerned about a sexually violent predator that is homeless and has chosen a park where plenty of children play to reside.

William Kile, 58, spent 10 years behind bars for sex crimes against a small child and a mentally disabled man. He was released from jail about a month ago, registered with the state as a sex offender and was put on the Megan’s Law website, according to police.

Beaver County police Sgt. Kelly Hogan said they had to notify the entire community with fliers and an email blast about Kile.

Under Megan’s Law, sexual offenders are permitted to register without an exact address, but parents said their local park is no place for a predator.

“I think it's ridiculous. He should have to give an exact address, but I think that's a loophole in the law and it's wrong,” said Beverly Tomei, a mother who lives nearby.

Police said they get calls every day from worried parents who call about sightings of Kile.

Beaver officers are concerned and notified everyone about Kile’s presence, but said there's nothing more they can do.

 “We know people are worried. We're watching out for him, watching where he goes in our town, but this is how the law works,” said Hogan.
