Former Police Officer Admits To Rapes

Cary Hartmann recently has admitted committing the four 1980s rapes for which he is in prison, and has indicated he will talk about the unsolved disappearance of his girlfriend, a pardons board official said. Hartmann has indicated he will talk to authorities about the Oct. 2, 1985, disappearance of girlfriend Sheree Warren of Roy, said Kent Jones, who was the hearing officer for Hartmann's parole hearing last month. The pardons board has since voted against a release date for Hartmann, 57, and instead set a 2010 rehearing date. "We think it's critical he tell us everything he's done in the past," Jones said. Jones said he confronted Hartmann with new information relating to Warren's disappearance, and, "He denied knowing anything about it." However, Hartmann indicated he would cooperate with authorities looking at the case again, Jones said. Shane Minor, an investigator with the Weber County attorney's office, said he will be meeting with Hartmann within the next two weeks. Hartmann was arrested in May 1987 on rape charges. He was a reserve Ogden police officer at the time the rapes were committed. At the Sept. 20 parole hearing in the prison's Gunnison facility, Hartmann admitted to the four rapes he was convicted of and one he was not charged with, Jones said. "For the first time, he's admitted to what he was prosecuted for," Jones said. "We were impressed, but not quite enough. We're interested in whether he's admitted to everything. It's difficult to say how much more he has to admit to." Jones said Hartmann also admitted to sexual abuse of his three ex-wives, and to making thousands of phone calls to women in which he pretended to conduct a survey about lingerie. Jones said that at Hartmann's first parole hearing in 1990, he still was denying guilt and still was receiving letters of support from church leaders and police officers. No one attended his latest parole hearing.

[Excerpted] ...The Sorensens have their own theories of what happened to their daughter, usually believing she too was murdered. But Mary Sorensen acknowledged, "I don't know if I've still accepted she's not coming home. You never learn to completely live with it. You can deal with death. It's finality. But this is a little more complex," said Ed Sorensen. He and his wife are not concerned about justice, "we'd just like to know where she is." Warren was always on the go and friendly. She loved children, her parents said, and started holiday traditions with her son, who was a toddler when she disappeared. The family stuffed tiny presents into plastic balls and opened them on Christmas Day. Every day of not knowing the whereabouts of her daughter is a struggle for Mary Sorensen. At Christmastime, it's difficult because "there's always someone who says, 'What would it be like if she were here?' " she said...

    He worked for my father and was allowed into our home when I was 16. He once asked me if I have ever had a guy naked on the couch. He came to my rescue at the rodeo when he was a cop on duty and some drunk idiot was all over me. You just never really know the people in your life.
