Fake ‘Twilight’ Actor Arrested In Attempted Abduction Visited Newton Schools
NEWTON, Iowa -- The Newton Community School District has admitted a man arrested Tuesday in an alleged attempted abduction case, who claimed to be an actor from the movie ‘Twilight,’ was admitted to two district schools. Thirty-three-year-old David Lavera is charged with child enticement. According to his online biography, Lavera was in several movies. But the family of the alleged 14-year-old victim says he told the teen he starred in the ‘Twilight’ saga. She believed him, and the two communicated using social media. That is until Tuesday, when police say Lavera came to Baxter to pick the girl up.
