On December 13, 2020 Jeremy Dewitte received an email from YouTube vlogger Jay Horowitz. Horowitz runs a YouTube channel called Real World Police.
In January 2020 Jay Horowitz began uploading body camera footage of Jeremy Dewitte. From the beginning of his uploads Horowitz accused Dewitte of being a serial police impersonator. He began the year with 300,000 subscribers and as he rapidly turned his channel into what he jokingly called “The Jeremy Dewitte Channel” the number of subscribers tripled.
Despite labeling himself a journalist Jay Horowitz didn’t appear to be impartial when he openly mocked and defamed Jeremy Dewitte every week for nearly a year.
Dr. Phil Show producers claimed they watched Jay Horowitz’s videos but they were skeptical about his videos. One of the executive producers believed Horowitz edited his videos in a way to slant the information in his favor. The Dr. Phil Show reached out to Jay Horowitz multiple times. The producers said they asked him whether he manipulated his videos and spliced them together. They also asked him to make an appearance on the show during a November 2020 taping. Jay Horowitz refused to speak to them on the phone, he refused to appear and according to the executive producers he was afraid he would be sued by Jeremy Dewitte.
The show producers also reached out to JeremyDewitteCase.com. When we spoke to the production team we were told the website was the catalyst for contacting Jeremy Dewitte. The show believed the felony cases against Dewitte were no longer black and white and there may be another side to his story which included police corruption.
After failing to appear on the show and being replaced by another vlogger named Blue Bacon, Jay Horowitz began to slowly release information in favor of Jeremy Dewitte. One of those pieces was an email from Sergeant Keith Vidler’s supervisor Ronald Chapman. In the series of emails Larry D. Krantz, who is currently Chief of Police of Casselberry Police Department, ordered Orange County deputies to stand down on any enforcement actions against Metro-State Special Services.
On December 13, 2020 Jay Horowitz sent an email to Jeremy Dewitte’s business email. In the email Horowitz described a crime with a victim’s name. Jay Horowitz asked Dewitte to confirm the information in the email and he also stated he was beginning to believe Jeremy Dewitte.
Assuming he was revealing new and relevant information, Jay Horowitz continued in his email that he would also forward the information to Amir Ladan, Jeremy Dewitte’s defense attorney. Jeremy Dewitte responded with the following emails:
We spoke to Jeremy Dewitte and he claimed he and his attorney knew everything Jay Horowitz typed in his email almost two years ago. Dewitte said he and the victim of the crime were in fact on great terms, the victim used Ladan’s services this year and most of the statements in the email were incorrect or confused with another case.
Horowitz tried to destroy me and my family, he tried to ruin my chances for a fair trial and he has put my life in danger with the threats to kill me and kill my family that we receive everyday from strangers. And he thinks I care about some case from years ago? No. I care about my family, friends and my future and suing him for everything he has and everything he ever thought about having.Jeremy Dewitte
Before Jay Horowitz became Real World Police he went by the alias Yair Horowitz who lived in New York, New York. During a short marriage that ultimately ended in divorce with a woman named Amy “Ayo” Oppenheimer, he placed an ad on a website called CouchSurfing.
CouchSurfing.com allows travelers and those without homes of their own to find a place to stay all over the world. Hosts can also create accounts and offer their homes for travelers.
After his divorce Jay “Yair” Horowitz enjoyed CouchSurfing’s services once more as a single man in Austin, Texas.
CouchSurfing has gained a reputation for being a hookup app and there have been numerous complaints about sexual advances made by hosts and travelers. Customers weren’t happy when CouchSurfing recently became a paid service and forced its members to either contribute $2.99 per month or $17.99 per year.
Prior to the changes to CouchSurfing’s product Jay “Yair” Horowitz and Amy “Ayo” Oppenheimer traveled to the Dominican Republic and stayed at a nudist resort. During their stay a police report was written and a complaint against Horowitz was made.
We will discuss the details in Part Two of this post as well as the terroristic and biological threats Jeremy Dewitte, his family and his friends have received.
