Demolition of Bradley Offices Begins

Attorney General’s Office works with contractors, other state agencies to tear down Lewes site; Demolition to finish by Monday
 
Lewes – Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden announced today that the demolition process has begun on offices once owned by Earl Bradley, who received 14 life sentences plus 164 years this past August after his conviction for sexually abusing young children at his pediatrics practice in Lewes.
 
“No one should have to look at those buildings and be reminded of the crimes that happened inside, especially not the victims and their families,” said Attorney General Biden. “We made sure that Bradley will never be able to harm another child. Now, our focus remains ensuring that the victims, their families, and the community have every resource and service they need to heal, for as long as they need them. This community deserves to see any visual reminders of these horrible crimes erased from existence.”
 
Members of the Attorney General’s Office, along with contractors and other state agencies, began removing items from Bradley’s former offices today in preparation for the demolition of the buildings on the property, which is scheduled for Monday. Items removed today included large play structures from inside the buildings, which were part of Bradley’s office design constructed to put children at ease and isolate them from their parents.
