Kevin Spacey Accuser to Meet With Massachusetts District Attorney

Son of former news anchor Heather Unruh, who accused Spacey, will meet with district attorneys

Massachusetts District Attorney Michael O’Keefe will meet with the son of Heather Unruh, a former Boston news anchor who accused actor Kevin Spacey of sexually abusing her child.

According to a report from the Boston Globe, O’Keefe, the D.A. for the Cape and Islands area in Barnstable, Massachusetts, is interested “in everything that’s relevant and material” to the alleged incident. The investigation “will proceed from there after we have a chance to speak with the person who made the allegation,” O’Keefe said.

Unruh is being represented by Mitchell Garabedian, an attorney who has represented hundreds of clergy sexual abuse victims. He says he is looking for “any possible documented evidence” about the alleged encounter, and is also looking into Spacey’s activity on Nantucket Island, where he is a frequent visitor.

During a press conference on Wednesday, Unruh said Spacey plied her son with alcohol after meeting him at a bar on Nantucket Island in July 2016 and then grabbed is genitals without consent.

“My son was not of legal age to drink alcohol. He told Kevin Spacey that he was of legal age. But whether he was over 21 or not, Kevin Spacey has no right to sexually assault him. There was no consent,” she said.

Unruh said her son — whom she did not otherwise identify — managed to escape when Spacey excused himself to use the restroom.

“The victim, my son, was a starstruck straight 18-year-old young man who had no idea that the famous actor was an alleged sexual predator or that he was about to become his next victim,” she said.

Since the wave of accusations against Spacey was started by actor Anthony Rapp, who accused Spacey of sexually harassing him when he was 14, Netflix has severed ties with the actor, dropping his 2018 film “Gore” and firing him from the hit show “House of Cards.”
