article imageCDC official, boyfriend accused of child bestiality/molestation

Atlanta - A high-ranking CDC scientist and her night watchman boyfriend have been booked on child-molestation charges, after a medical professional at the center turned them in. The warrant cites two incidents with a six-year old boy.
Kimberly Quinlan Lindsey was a well-respected CDC scientist, the deputy director of laboratory science policy at the Atlanta-based agency. The New York Daily News reports that the 44-year old Lindsey has been charged with bestiality and child molestation for sex acts involving a 6-year old boy.
Her boyfriend and live-in partner, 42-year old Thomas Westerman, who works at the CDC as a night watchman, was also charged with two counts of child molestation in connection with the same two incidents.
Both surrendered to DeKalb County authorities before they were charged.
A police spokeswoman Pamela Kunz said,
"During the investigation evidence was recovered that led to the bestiality charge."
Authorities did not detail how the crimes were committed or how either of them came in contact with the child.
But theHerald Sun reports that Dr. Lindsey and Mr. Westerman allegedly made the child take part in sex play.
According to her professional biography, Lindsey holds a Ph.D. in immunology, and had worked as a senior researcher in the CDC's bioterrorism program, where she oversaw the re-allocation of $1.5 billion in funds. She later switched to the centers' HIV/AIDS prevention unit.
Westerman, who started working for the CDC in January, was released on bail; Lindsey remains jailed in lieu of $20,000 bond, authorities said. The two suspects are scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 1.
