A fifth person is now saying she was sexually assaulted by former Philadelphia Daily News columnist Bill Conlin.
The unidentified woman told the Philadelphia Inquirer that Conlin repeatedly abused her when she was about 7-years-old and lived in Washington Township, Gloucester County. The woman says she was a childhood friend of Conlin's son, Peter.
Their stories match allegations described by the woman who came forward Wednesday.
This latest accuser told the Inquirer that Conlin groped and fondled her in his living room and, on another occasion, allegedly assaulted her in an upstairs bedroom. The 44-year-old mother of three also claims Conlin touched her genitals twice and put his fingers inside her.
"I just remember my mom holding my dad back,” the woman told the Inquirer “and two of them [Conlin and her father] screaming at each other.”
