Steve Schinhofen was featured on the 10News coverage during the second part of the investigative report by Kerstin Lindquist.

Today, Steve comments… “I have been going down to Miracle Ranch Orphanage for 28 years. You can learn more about what I know has happened over the years on the Miracle Ranch Orphanage Foundation. What you will read is hard for most people to believe, but I’m sad to say, it is all true. In addition to the allegations of abuse, Antonio Hernandez has two properties in Ensenada that were bought with money from generous donors to the orphanage and intended to benefit the children, but they are in his Antonio’s name and they are his personal asset. If you are a victim of abuse that occurred at Miracle Ranch Orphanage, please let us know. We would like to connect you with your brothers and sisters and to assist in bringing you healing.

Here is what 10News reports on Monday’s 11:00 broadcast…

10News was told by the orphans that Swink was given access to young boys like Jorge by the Hernandez couple.

“Tony used to bring him to John Swinks’ camp site and he would be molested,” said former ranch staffer Steve Schinhofen.

“Do you think he should still be running an orphanage down there now,” said Lindquist. “Well if what was going on then is going on now…no, ” said Swink.

John Swink said he can not be sure Hernandez was actually physically or sexually abusing the children but he believes Hernandez knew that there was abuse taking place.

While at Miracle Ranch 10News saw no signs of abuse. Swink hasn’t stepped foot in the camp for years.
