The strange legacy of New Horizon Academy
« on: May 15, 2020, 06:44:32 AM »
Long after Escuela Caribe and New Horizon Academy collapse and new owners had to take over the horror camp in the Dominican Republic, a strange spin-off has been discovered.

Some years ago a book called "A Rock and a Hard Place: One Boy's Triumphant Story" made as a memoir by a boy exposed to abuse became a best-seller. At some point journalists found it interesting to interview the boy who wrote the book.

He has never been found!

It seems that the therapist working at New Horizon Academy - Marc Allen Zackheim- ghostwrote the book together with his female partner - Vicki Johnson.

Both has since died but not after two criminal investigations into his past which in one case put him in prison.

So the tale of New Horizon Ministries ends up with a mystery and possible fraud.

Where all the money went earned by exposing numerous children to abuse since 1970 has not been revealed. How such a person became therapist and how he was allowed to work all these years also remain a mystery.

How runs the campus which used to be Escuela Caribe today? Are children been abuse? Can anyone put names of some of the abusers beside the therapist?
