|John Melanson is a repeatedly convicted child molester|
John Melanson (also known as John "Fester" Murray Melanson and as Chef Fester) is a convicted child molester who is in jail once again for abducting and molesting another child. He was recently arrested in Hay River, Northern Territories, Canada. On July 4, 2011, he was convicted and labeled a dangerous offender and was sentenced to an indeterminate prison term for sexually assaulting two Hay River boys. He has 56 convictions on his criminal record, including eight sexual offenses.
Melanson is involved in the Montreal Ganymede Collective, and was the roommate of Jason Garrison, the person who designed the Epifora website. When he was arrested formerly, Garrison mentioned that he was involved in the Montreal Ganymede Collective. That information was swept under the rug by the group. In addition to the Collective, Melanson is also a member of the Free Spirits Coalition and CBLF.
Melanson's modus operandi is to gain the trust of parents, molest their children, steal their money and property, then run.

The quotes below are taken from Melanson's many posts on the message board BoyMoment.
We have taken the following steps in this investigation, although we are still in the process of gathering information and trying to connect the links:
- We obtained information from a source stating that a John Melanson was wanted by the Canadian authorities on charges of property and sexual crimes. The source confided that they believed that Melanson is the same person as Camper, a pedophile who is known on BoyChat and as the owner of Epifora web hosting services.
- While we have been able to determine that Camper's first name is actually John, by his own admission, we have not been able to link the last name of Melanson to Camper as of yet. Both the name Camper and Melanson have been linked to the Montreal Ganymede Collective and other similarities exist regarding their online activities and possible ownership of Epifora, however we are continuing our search to confirm that these two names are indeed connected.
- Possibly Camper
