Keyon insists he and his brother didn't realize what BlackMen.net had in store for them until they arrived in Atlanta. The website's owner—a guy who calls himself Xavier McDonald and speaks with a friendly southern twang—says the brothers knew what they were getting into. McDonald treated the Goffney boys to dinner at an upscale restaurant before the first shoot, in a room at their hotel. The plot was simple: Keyon invites his brother to watch a movie with him; they get aroused and start masturbating. For his generosity, McDonald received a thank-you note: "I had a great time and really appreciated the respect + time you guys shared w/us! Look forward to working w/you guys again soon." It was signed "Keyon + Teyon," the twins' porn names.

In the next two years, Keyon and Taleon shot five scenes for BlackMen.net, some of which involved acts that were just shy of incest, including the threesome with Marc Williams at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. "That was the first time Marc Williams bottomed on camera," says McDonald. It was Taleon, not his gay brother, who had sex with Williams. As McDonald puts it, "Within the small confines of black hard-core gay erotica, that was a pretty big deal."

It was enough of a big deal that, back home, Taleon started being recognized at his kung fu–movie stand. "I've got to find another way to make money," he told Keyon. In late 2006, police say, the rooftop burglaries began.

In May 2006, police detectives on stakeout duty at a reputedly drug-infested apartment complex in Clementon, New Jersey, noticed a guy goofing around, pulling off some impressive backflips. It was Taleon. The police say they watched him engaged in alleged drug trades, then moved in to arrest him for possession of drugs and carrying a loaded .25. With Taleon handcuffed in the back seat of a squad car, the cops set off for the station. Taleon had other ideas. According to the police account, Taleon used his legs for leverage and rammed his forehead into the rear driver's-side window, shattering the glass. Before the cops knew what was happening, he'd hurled himself headfirst through the window of the moving vehicle. Taleon was on his feet in seconds. The officers stopped the car and went after him on foot; he allegedly jump-kicked one and, soaked with sweat, slipped away when another tried to grab him. He dashed into the nearby woods and dove into a lake, using his legs to propel himself to the other side. "You know when you watched [Michael Phelps in] the Olympics?" says Clementon police chief Dave Kunkel. "That's how he was swimming." On dry land, Taleon stopped just long enough to taunt the cops he'd left on the far shore. One of the officers ended up in the hospital with shoulder, rib, and knee injuries. "You'll never catch me," Taleon shouted before disappearing into the night.
