An 18-year-old man, Joseph Hayden Boston, has confessed to molesting up to 50 children after his mother called the police and turned him in to authorities in Riverside early Saturday, police say.

According to reports Boston gave to his mom, which she relayed to police detectives, the teenager had been staying at the Simply Home Inn & Suites, where he befriended two little boys, ages 8 and 4.

Both children, who were staying at the same motel with their parents, asked if they could go over to Boston’s room Friday night and they agreed. It was when they got to Boston’s room that the molestation occurred.

Hours later, Boston told his mom what he had done. His mom drove to her son’s location and took him to the police station.

A Riverside police sergeant was flagged down at about 3 a.m. at the Magnolia Avenue Police Station by Boston’s mother, who said she wanted to turn her son in for suspected molestation.

When officers interviewed Boston, he confessed to sexually assaulting the two boys and admitted to molesting more than 50 kids since he was 10 years old. The crimes, he said, happened in different cities where he had lived.

Boston was arrested on counts of oral copulation on a child under the age of 10. He was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center with his bail set at $1 million.

The County of Riverside Child Protective Services took custody of both boys from the hotel, police said.

Officer Ryan Railsback of Riverside police said:

“This is going to affect not only the victims for a long time, but also our detectives and officers involved in this, to hear someone just be very open about what they’ve done, and they’re only 18 themselves.”

Detectives believe Boston has victimized children who have not yet come forward, according to Riverside police.

Thousands bid fare well to Mugabe..

Zimbabwe’s founder Robert Mugabe was honored as an icon, principled leader and African intellectual giant at a state funeral on Saturday, after a week of disputes over his burial threatened to embarrass President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Mugabe led Zimbabwe for 37 years, from independence until he was ousted by the army in November 2017, by which time he was viewed by many at home and abroad as a power-obsessed autocrat who unleashed death squads, rigged elections and ruined the economy to keep control.

He died in a Singapore hospital on Sept. 6 aged 95, far away from a country he left polarized by a raging political rivalry between its two largest political parties, ZANU-PF and the opposition MDC.

His remains will be interred in a mausoleum at the National Heroes Acre in the capital Harare in about 30 days, his nephew said on Friday, contradicting earlier comments that a burial would be held on Sunday.

On Saturday, Mnangagwa walked behind the casket carrying Mugabe’s body as it was wheeled into the center of Harare’s National Sports Stadium and placed on a podium decorated with flowers so that heads of state could say their farewells. Senior army generals and Mugabe’s wife and children followed, as a brass band played.

The 60,000 seater stadium was only half-filled.

In a tribute to his predecessor, Mnangagwa said Mugabe stood in defense of Africans. He urged the West to remove sanctions that were imposed during Mugabe’s rule.

“We who remain shall continue to hear his rich, brave, defiant and inspiring voice … encouraging and warning us to be vigilant and astute,” Mnangagwa said in a speech.

“A giant tree of Africa has fallen. Today Africa weeps.”

Mnangagwa and the ruling ZANU-PF party wanted Mugabe buried at the national shrine to heroes of the 15-year liberation war against white minority rule. But some relatives, expressing bitterness at the way former comrades ousted Mugabe, had pushed for him to be buried in his home village.

Walter Chidhakwa, who spoke on behalf of Mugabe’s family, said Mugabe was an icon who was determined and unflinching in pursuing policies like land reform and later the black economic empowerment program.

Mugabe left behind a country wrecked by hyperinflation, dollarization and deeply entrenched corruption.

But many Zimbabweans also remember Mugabe as their country’s liberator from white minority rule and for broadening people’s access to education and land
