The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office has reportedly obtained audiotapes from 1993 on which Corey Feldman names the individuals whom he alleges abused him when he was a minor. The records were part of an investigation of Michael Jackson from that time.

In October, Feldman told Matt Lauer that he named his alleged abusers during the course of an investigation, but authorities maintained they did not have any record to support his claim.

A spokesperson for the sheriff’s office told Fox News over email on Wednesday, “In a container which included the original reports from the investigation, the Sheriff’s Office located some detective working copies of audio recording made during the investigation. A copy of Mr. Feldman’s interview was located.”

Louis C.K.—apparently breaking his streak of not showing his face in public after admitting to sexual misconduct and being an irresistibly powerful man last month—popped up at a restaurant in Manhattan’s West Village on Tuesday. The unsuspecting crowd was not impressed.

A source told the New York Daily News of C.K., “He looked like a guy who’d been caught [masturbating] in front of women,” and described the comedian and his friend as looking “like they’re going to a wake.”

Upon entering the restaurant, C.K. and his companion were immediately escorted to a corner booth in the back, by the bathrooms.
