'Fetishist' Faked Down Syndrome To Hire Female Carers

The man faked having a disability to hire female carers who would bathe him and change his diapers.

'Fetishist' Paul Menchaca, 31, has been charged with fraudulent schemes and sex abuse after faking a disability to con unsuspecting carers and nurses.

Posting on ads online under the name 'Amy", Menchaca claimed a 'loved one' with Down Sydnrome needed home care to bathe and change his diapers.

Police allege three women answered the ads and Menchaca would become aroused while having his diaper changed.

One women, who did not wish to be named, told ABC15 she believed Menchaca was a 'fetishist'.

‘He acted like a child; his whole demeanor was childlike. He would act in tantrums, talk like a child, act like a child," she said.

‘Why would you make us change you knowing you didn’t have to. Why didn’t you give us a choice?’

A second carer who was conned by Menchaca said she felt "uncomfortable" when she had to shower him.

‘I feel disgusted and very uncomfortable. As a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) I’m so drawn toward people who need help, vulnerable adults, somebody who can’t even make it to bathroom themselves," she said.

Menchaca fraud unravelled when one woman suspected he was lying, and followed him to his real house.

When she knocked on the door, his parents answered, and told her he did not have Down Syndrome nor needed diapers.

It is alleged Menchaca admitted to lying when confronted by the three women.

Menchaca made a preliminary court appearance on Friday.
