Earl Bradley Home Donated to Church

Posted:

LEWES, Del.- The home once owned by former pediatrician Earl Bradley has been donated to the Bethel United Methodist Church.

Earl is the former pediatrician who was convicted of child rape in 2011. He is currently serving 14 life sentences for raping over 100 of his child patients.

His Savannah Road home in Lewes has been abandoned for some time. The windows and doors to the home are locked. But that won't be the case for much longer.

The Bethel United Methodist Church has accepted the home as a donation from an anonymous donor. The donor is also giving the church $100,000 for home improvements to the property.

Rich and Kathy Dreasen live four houses down from the home and are happy to see it going to something positive.

"It's going to be a good thing for the church and a good thing for the community," said Kathy Dreasen.

The neighbors believe the church can bring a positive influence to the horrific situation.

"It is spectacular. It is like a phoenix rising from the ashes," said Rich Dreasen. "It's my feeling that Bethel has an opportunity to do something but it has to be something really good to really offset what was done."

The church is still deciding what exactly they would like to do with the home but it will have something to do with children in a positive manner.
