It was recently determined that the accused (who has remained in custody since his arrest on January 5) had been luring children online from locations across the world.  The accused recorded children performing sexual acts and would often pay them for doing so (often using Roblox gift cards as the currency). 

In February of 2022, the accused met with a 14-year-old female in Brampton and sexually assaulted her.

  • Obtaining Sexual Services from a Minor 

Zielke also spent time as a teacher at St. Vincent Catholic Elementary School in Oakville from 2014 to 2016 and St. Matthew Catholic Elementary School in Oakville in 2013.
