SAN JOSE, Calif. - A convicted child molester jailed in California may have committed sex crimes against thousands of victims, police said Thursday after finding computers, notebooks and meticulous, handwritten lists of boy’ names and apparent codes for various sex acts.

San Jose Police Lt. Scott Cornfield described 63-year-old Dean Arthur Schwartzmiller as “one of the most active child molesters we’ve ever seen.”During a search of his bedroom in San Jose, police discovered binders full of child porn and numerous logs with lists of morethan 36,000 children’s names — mostly boys — and codes that appear to indicate how he abused them.

“If one-tenth of these numbers are accurate, we’re looking at hundreds of victims in a number of states. The reason we want to tell the world about this is because we believe he’s been involved in child molestations in a number of countries,” Cornfield said.
