SEATTLE - FOX 13 News uncovered new documents surrounding the man police killed during a child sex sting operation in South Seattle.

Seattle Police say Bruce Meneley thought he was meeting an 11-year-old and a 7-year-old at the DoubleTree on Southcenter Parkway. Body camera footage shows the person identified as Meneley by the King County Medical Examiner pulling a gun out as soon as officers open the door to contact him.

New documents FOX 13 News obtained from the U.S. Military show Meneley’s official history with the Navy. Meneley enlisted in 1975 and retired in 2016, holding powerful positions in several different countries during that time.

According to the Navy records, Meneley’s last duty station was Fort Sam Houston, Texas, with the Defense Medical Readiness Training Institute. He was stationed there from 2014 to 2016.

According to probable documents FOX 13 Seattle obtained from Kitsap County, a little more than a year after Meneley retired, he was arrested in a human trafficking sting operation.

The records say Meneley took out money, and expected to have unprotected sex with a prostitute for $110. However, Meneley was actually talking to investigators posing as sex workers.

During the arrest, Meneley admitted to contacting several other sex workers in the past, and paying for sex at least one other time within the last year. Investigators said Meneley’s number popped up in at least two other sting operations, but he was never arrested.

Meneley also told investigators he had been arrested in Texas for a similar crime. Texas was the last place Meneley was stationed.

SEATTLE — The son of former Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn was charged for possessing and distributing child pornography on April 2.

Jack Francis Lynch McGinn faces one count of dealing in depictions of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct in the first degree and possession of depictions of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct in the first degree.

McGinn will be arraigned April 15 in King County Superior Court.

On Friday, March 29, Seattle's Internet Crimes Against Children unit served a warrant at McGinn's home in the Greenwood neighborhood, where he was arrested. According to charging documents, McGinn initially stated he views adult pornography multiple times a week. After being questioned further, McGinn "admitted to downloading at least a hundred files continuing images or videos of underage children involved in sexually explicit conduct."

According to charging documents, McGinn told investigators he has a cocaine addiction. He said, according to the documents, that he goes on "weekend benders," which is when he views the child sex abuse material on his computer.

The state requested bail be set at $70,000. Additionally, the state requested McGinn is prohibited from having contact with minors without exception and cannot use the internet without a computer monitoring system. The state also requested that McGinn be prohibited from consuming alcohol or non-prescription drugs.

A person who stated he is friends with the McGinn family told investigators Jack McGinn's parents moved to the East Coast "a year or two ago" and Jack McGinn moved into their Greenwood home.

Mike McGinn served one term as Seattle mayor from 2010 to 2013. He lost his bid for reelection in 2013, losing to Ed Murray. He ran again in 2017 but lost to Jenny Durkan.
