Like most Boy Scouts, Adam and Ben Steed wanted to earn merit badges and go on camping trips. But the brothers’ camp experience would soon become a nightmare …

In this episode of EXPOSÉ, reporters at the Idaho Falls POST REGISTER uncover a terrible secret kept hidden from the public: a pedophile was working as a camp leader within the local Boy Scouts. Reporter Peter Zuckerman and EXPOSÉ retrace the steps that lead to the incredible discovery, starting with the anonymous source that tipped him off to lawsuits documenting multiple cases of sexual abuse by a Boy Scout leader. The court records were kept hidden by powerful lawyers representing the Boy Scouts, but Zuckerman was not deterred and continued to press for the truth.
