Frank Lombard is Duke Professor: Frank Lombard is Pedophile Commune Member

Pedophile dad and Duke University professor, Frank Lombard, has been living in the Eno-Commons commune in Durham, NC. Lombard is a member of the Episcopal Church of the Advocate (ECOTA) in Carrboro, NC. See updates below.

Frank Lombard - Duke University Professor
Frank McCorkle Lombard, 42, lives at 24 Indigo Creek Trail, Durham, with his partner and two adopted boys, at least one of which has been raped and molested for what appears to be a very long time. This Duke University professor "invited an undercover investigator online to fly to North Carolina" to also rape his child. The two adopted children have been placed in protective custody. The Eno Commons website , (another more descriptive here) in Durham, NC says the community, among other things, is a park-like neighborhood with organic gardens, orchard and a woodland creek leading to the Eno River. There are 22 households in this "cohousing neighbor." It is located 6 miles from the center of downtown Durham, interestingly, Eno Commons says it is a "Paradise for Children." Eno Commons utilizes a "Commons House." You can have the privacy of your own home or gather with "extended family" at the Commons House.
Neighborhood meals offer at least two good things: a chance to eat home-cooked sit-down meals with good company, and a chance to do the preceding without always having to spend time cooking. Sharing meals in our Commons House about six times a month is an important part of our community. We have Tuesday evening meals every week, a meal every other Sunday evening and parties for all occasions.
The website says "Children learn what they live," but the neighbors of Frank Lombard, his partner and Lombard's adopted children have expressed no surprise or outrage at what Lombard's 5-year-old son has been "learning" as he lived among them. Make no mistake about it, there has been no paradise in Eno Commons for the son that Lombard drugged, raped, molested - and did it all on camera, live on a website with others watching. According to News&Observer.com, the Commons "have kept reporters out." The midwest conservative journal gives more detail about these neighbors living in communal paradise:
A Raleigh News & Observer reporter went to talk to some of Lombard’s neighbors and got this strange response: Neighbors of Lombard had nothing to say about him Saturday to a reporter who visited Eno Commons, a co-housing community in north Durham. Residents ordered the reporter to leave the neighborhood, which emphasizes communal life.
A roadblock with a “no trespassing” sign and a Subaru greeted visitors Saturday to Indigo Creek Trail, a private street in the 22-home neighborhood.
The News&Observer.com says The Episcopal Church of the Advocate (EPOTA) are cooperating. They removed references and photos of Lombard (and possibly a photo of his son or sons) from the website. Lombard is said to have been a "part of a group that advised on legal and financial matters," at the church. Other reports say that Frank Lombard was a "vestryman."
The church is providing pastoral care and spiritual guidance for all parishioners who have been affected by this painful situation," Bishop Michael B. Curry said on the diocese's Web site.
Lombard seemed like a good father to his two children, said Sandy Barnhart, who attended the same church. She said he was a quiet and knowledgeable person who was excited about the research he did at Duke.
"I was absolutely floored," she said of hearing about Lombard's arrest. "I've seen him with the kids, and he seemed to be a caring father. It seemed like [they lived in a] structured environment. He wasn't spoiling the kids. He seemed like a regular parent."
Arrest affidavit available here. Extremely graphic - don't go there unless you are prepared to fully read what Frank Lombard is alleged to have done to this poor child.

Frank Lombard's gay partner is reported to be 57-year-old Ken Shipp, co-owner of the home in Eno Commons and also a Duke University staff member, Clinical Pharmacist, Medicine-Infectious Diseases.
