B.C. lifeguard facing 10 sexual assault, pornography charges involving children

PENTICTON, B.C. — A 54-year-old lifeguard from Penticton, B.C., has been charged with 10 counts of child sexual assault and pornography involving alleged offences between 2008 and 2014.

RCMP say information they received last November sparked an investigation of a longtime employee at a recreational facility in Summerland.

Police believe Edward Casavant, also known as Eddie Spaghetti, worked as a lifeguard for over 30 years and used his position to gain access to school-aged children.

They say he also volunteered as a lifeguard at various local summer camps and community events, where he may have had access to children.

RCMP spokesman Cpl. Chris Manseau says while officers have identified at least two victims, they strongly believe there are others.

Casavant was arrested on an outstanding warrant.
