FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Los Angeles, CA, February 15, 2024/CELEBRE MEDIA VIP, LLC:
A real-life horror story from the 1980s, once buried in the archives, has resurfaced to shed light on a dark chapter in American history. The O.K. Boys Ranch in Olympia, Washington, intended to provide refuge for troubled youth, instead became a house of nightmares, as revealed in unsettling reports dating back to the 1990s (www.archive.seattletimes.com/archive/?date=19951214&slug=2157707).
Children entrusted to the care of the ranch found themselves subjected to unthinkable physical, mental, emotional, and sexual abuse, far beyond the troubles they sought refuge from. Among the victims of this harrowing ordeal was Walter Dumas, a native of Seattle, Washington, whose journey through childhood adversity led him to the doors of the O.K. Boys Ranch.
Walter’s resilience in the face of unspeakable trauma is a testament to the human spirit. Overcoming the horrors of his past through unwavering faith, compassion for others, and a deep-seated passion for art and poetry, Walter has emerged as a beacon of hope and inspiration.
In a bold step toward healing and justice, Walter has courageously shared his story in the documentary “THE WALTER DUMAS STORY: SURVIVING THE OK BOYS RANCH” available on ROKU/Amazon Fire through the World Movement Enterprises App.
Moreover, he has authored his memoir, “Silent Suffocation: The Walter Dumas Story,” now available through World Movement Publishing, offering readers a firsthand account of the horrors endured by a child who lived through it.
