The latest twist in the case is that the accuser has now recanted his claim that he had a sexual relationship with Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash while he was underage. From the New York Times:

Andreozzi & Associates, a law firm that said it represented the accuser said in a statement that "he wants it to be known that his sexual relationship with Mr. Clash was an adult consensual relationship." The statement added, "He will have no further comment on the matter."

The accuser's identity has not been disclosed.

Mr. Clash said through a spokeswoman: "I am relieved that this painful allegation has been put to rest. I will not discuss it further."


Clash remains on a leave of absence from Sesame Street while another puppeteer fills the role.
