Edward Robert Muscare (September 27th, 1932 - January 8th, 2012), also known by his stage name Uncle Ed, or by his YouTube name Edarem, was a former entertainer, YouTuber, and alleged pedophile.
Edward began his career in the 1970s as a television host for Kansas City, going by the stage name "Uncle Ed." He eventually regained attention when he was found guilty of
coming into sexual contact with a 14-year-old. He was arrested for 18 months. After that, he said:
I would never sexually offend again, but we can't help but sin. We're all human beings.
In 2007, his computer and alcohol was confiscated from his house when he didn't inform local authorities of his criminal history. He claimed that he was afraid that neighbors would get angry due to his criminal past. During all this, police discovered a video he uploaded onto YouTube of him lip-syncing "Oh, Pretty Woman" by Roy Orbison (1963). Instead of being sent back to prison, Muscare was on probation and, as part of it, was unallowed to have a computer without permission. He relied on friends to upload videos for him, thinking it wouldn't affect his probation, but it did, resulting in his next arrest in 2010. He was sentenced to 5 years in prison, but died of lung cancer two years in at the age of 79.
