Olympia man who disappeared faces charges of having child porn
Capital Playhouse interim artistic director Troy A. Fisher, who was missing for three days this week and said he can’t remember where he was, has been arrested on suspicion of possession of child pornography.
According to an Olympia Police Department news release:
After Fisher went missing Sunday, detectives searched his home for clues about where he might have gone. A computer forensics specialist found pornographic photos involving children on his computer.
A search warrant for the computer has been granted, and additional forensic analysis is being performed.
Fisher, 52, was found unharmed at the Olympia Safeway about 1:45 a.m. Wednesday, when he called 911 from a pay phone.
The investigation is ongoing; no connection between the disappearance and photos has been established.
Olympia police could not be reached for comment Friday afternoon.
Kim Wallace, a Capital Playhouse board member, was reached by telephone Friday.
“We were just contacted by the police and we are very much in shock, and really we don’t know anything,” she said. “Troy is an incredibly important and integral part of Capital Playhouse.”
The playhouse puts on plays involving children and teens, and runs children’s theater workshops.
