Cody Pawlus Charged In Kiddy Porn Case

Ohio--Not to make a joke out of our next suspect, but going bald at 20 is probably embarrassing for most young men, but going bald at twenty and being arrested for child pornography is a whole different spectrum.

Such is the case of Rootstown resident, Cody Pawlus, who was apprehended earlier this week as part of an ongoing multiple statewide police investigation.

Pawlus is accused of pandering a so-called "large volume" of sexually oriented matter involving minors after authorities allegedly seized “numerous amounts” of child pornography at four different suspected locations.

He remains in jail in lieu of $50,000 bond.

Besides the above MySpace profile, Mr. Pawlus also created an account on Facebook found here.

Andrew Wesley Downs Jailed In Christmas Murder Of Beverly Reilly & Kathy Yeager

California--A 20-year-old Atascadero man has been arrested for the double murder of two women on Christmas day.

The suspect, Andrew Wesley Downs, is alleged to have shot and killed sisters Beverly Reilly, 64 and Kathy Yeager, 61 who were said to be visiting relatives on the Santa Margarita Ranch.

According to report by KSBY:

”When another relative entered the home and saw what had happened, he took off running. Downs then got in a truck and started chasing after him. After getting the truck stuck in the mud, Downs took another vehicle, approached at least two other homes, attacked another person, and was eventually subdued by a victim and his son until police got there.”

Downs, who is believed to have been diagnosed with schizophrenia while attending Atascadero High School, had reportedly tried to attack one would-be victim with a pipe wrench.

As already mentioned, that didn’t work out so well as the people in the home were able to subdue him and quickly called police around 3 a.m on the 26th.

Prior to his arrest, Downs had been placed on probation until 2013 for stealing his father's car.

He is now currently residing at the San Luis Obispo County Jail without bail on charges of murder, attempted murder, burglary and assault.

Navy Man Jakob Benjamin Lee Tells Undercover Officer He Molested 25 Boys

California-A 25-year-old Navy seaman currently living in Virgina has been arrested after allegedly telling an agent working with the FBI that he molested 25 boys.

Jakob Benjamin Lee, originally of Eureka, was apprehended after an undercover agent identified an individual using the screen name "purpletrim420" sharing more than 400 images and videos of child pornography.

The IP was then subsequently traced to Mr. Lee, a who most recently worked as a hospital corpsman at the Portsmouth Naval Medical Center in Virgina.

MySpace profile #1 of Jakob Lee

On his above MySpace profile, the sailor living in Norfolk had wrote the following:

”I am now a NAVY certified Psychiatric Technician. tell me how does that make u feel...God has really blessed me with the most beautiful girlfriend in the world...”
Sounds pretty good, huh?

Until we read the the following from Lee on a much different website:

"looking for any pics of boys in any stage of dress ages 4-12"
And on another site:

"all about M/b (Man/Boy), lookin for people wit similar interest."
Then in response to an inquiry regarding M/b:

"thank you and glad there r so many of us out there.”
The individual behind the screen name posted the following picture on the website:

The user “purpletrim420“ (Lee) had also created the alias, “pedolee” on one of the aforementioned adult themed homosexual website which I will not be linking for content reasons.

Using the same e-mail address created by “pedolee" we subsequently find a different albeit older MySpace profile of Jakob Benjamin Lee:

MySpace profile #2 of Jakob Lee

There is also another account on MySpace created by the suspect found here. On this one, he uses the name, "pureganja0".

Lee’s Internet activity somewhat reminds me of the now jailed Norfolk sailor Alan Strieper, one of the more disturbing cases I blogged about earlier this year.

Other sites created by Mr. Lee’s include two profiles on Facebook (login first) found here and here. An account on Amazon is also available, with some head scratching items on his wishlist.

Not surprisingly, he can also be found on Stickam here.

UPDATE: Lee pleads guilty.

Chad Salvatore Busted On Child Porn Charges

A 37-year-old New York man has been arrested after allegedly admitting to investigators that he used his computer to trade child pornography with others over the Internet.

Chad A. Salvatore, a bank vice president, active volunteer in various foreign exchange student programs and self-proclaimed founder of a non-profit dog rescue program was apprehended over the weekend by agents working with the Department of Homeland Security.

Salvatore, who lives with his homosexual partner in Alden and is believed to have taken steps to adopt a 13-year-old boy, had a youthful-offender record from an incident in which he molested three children, one of whom was eleven at the time.

The then 17-year-old Salvatore was put on 5 years probation, according to the Buffalo News.

The DHS alleges that Salvatore used the the screen name“pervforlil12” to trade the videos over the Internet.

One of the videos is said to be of an infant being molested while another shows a young boy being gang-raped by several adult males.

On the web, a user who identifies himself as “pervforlil12“ wrote earlier this year on a gay adult themed site the following:

”im into hearing about true stories of guys who started young with their dads or other family.... like to hear about guys real stories with younger.... i like yngr myself....”
The user then continues:

"looking for guys in western new york state with yngr or dad/son access... where u all hiding ?”.
The individual behind “pervforlil12“ also used his e-mail address to create the alias “Joshua Janczek” on a popular website.

Besides the above MySpace profile, Mr. Salvatore also maintained an account on Facebook found here.

UPDATE: Salvatore pleads guilty.

Anthony Rodriquez & Robert Wilkins Charged After Exploiting YouTube Boy

Two men from two different states have been arrested and charged with sexually exploiting a 10-year-old boy over YouTube.

Anthony Steven Rodriguez of Georgia and Robert Shane Wilkins of Alabama are both in custody for sending child pornography to the boy who resides in Helena, Montana.

According to a report, sometime on December 6th, the child’s mother contacted police in Helena regarding suspicious Internet activity on her child’s computer.

The ICAC then subsequently began to investigate the case and identified the screen name “FunandFreaky7“ on the victim’s YouTube account.

"The investigator discovered that the screen name "FunandFreaky7" belonged to Rodriguez and Wilkins, who were posing as a pre-teen girl.

The two suspects asked the Helena boy to send them pictures of himself engaged in sexually explicit conduct. The boy complied.”
The evil pervy duo of Rodriguez and Wilkins then continued to pose as "FunandFreaky7" and sent the child videos of a preteen girl with her pants off, exposing her vagina.

Rodriguez, a registered sex offender convicted in 2001 and Wilkins, a former daycare employee of 5 years, were both arrested earlier this week.

MySpace profile of Robert Shane Wilkins

A portion of the criminal complaint states the following:

”Rodriguez was interviewed and confessed to communicating with “mrslyfan98“ on the "funandfreaky7" account, admitted to asking for videos of children engaged in sexually explicit conduct, admitted distributing child pornography via the account and admitted to providing "mrslyfan98" access to the "funandfreaky7" account so that "mrslyfan98" could upload the sexually explicit videos of the children to the account and agreed with "mrslyfan98" to use children to have them self produce sexually explicit videos.

Rodriguez believed "mrslyfan98" to be an individual who resided in Alabama. Rodriguez is a convicted sexual offender, currently on state supervision for enticing a child for indecent purposes. Wilkens was interviewed and confessed to being "mrslyfan98", communicating with Rodriguez on the "funandfreaky7" account, admitted to asking for videos of children engaged in sexually explicjt conduct, admitted distributing child pornography via the account by uploading those videos to the account to be distributed to kids, and admitted agreeing with Rodriguez to use children to have them self~produce sexually explicit videos.”
Besides the above MySpace profile, Mr. Wilkins also maintained a Facebook page found here.

The YouTube accounts in question are the following:

funandreaky7 (now closed accessed via cache)
mrslyfan98 (still active as of now)

Note, that "funandfreaky7" had amassed 100 friends while “mrslyfan98“ notched 170 friends, most of them who appear to be young boys.

MySpace Stalker Arrested In School Parking Lot

A 25-year-old married Arizona man and father of two has been arrested after he reportedly tried to lure a teenage girl for sex he met using MySpace.

Michael Guthier, of Scottsdale was taken into custody after the 16-year-old girl told a resource officer at her high school that she was being stalked by him.

He was quickly arrested at the school parking lot after the police were notified.

Guthier, who allegedly sent the teen numerous pornographic pictures of himself, is said to have lived near the school of the victim.

The self admitted sex addict with a preference for teenagers had previously used MySpace to meet a 17-year-old girl for oral sex.

Guthier admits that it's a thrill to think about having sex with a minor, according to report by KSAZ.

Babysitter Mark Permenter Arrested In Rape Of 3 Girls

A 32-year-old Pennsylvania man has been arrested by police after they reportedly discovered pictures of himself sexually abusing three young girls.

The suspect, Mark Anthony Permenter, faces multiple charges including rape following an ongoing investigation into his personal computer after sending some of the photos to an undercover postal inspector.

The victims are said to be two 3-year-old girls and a 4-year-old girl as well.

Permenter is accused of photographing himself abusing the young children at his home in
Camp Hill while babysitting them.

Investigators say Mr. Permenter who has plead not guilty, has since admitted to many of the accusations, according to a criminal complaint.

Permenter has since been charged with Rape, Involuntary Deviate Sexual Intercourse, Aggravated Indecent Assault, Statutory Sexual Assault. Indecent Assault, Corruption of Minors, and Indecent Exposure.

While I will not be linking the site, Mr. Permenter’s online activity can be traced to a notorious website that is often used to trade images of child pornography.

Permenter used the screen name "themack" to post pictures and make comments as early as two months ago.

Besides his two private MySpace profiles found here and here, Mr. Permenter can also be found on Facebook by clicking here.

About the only profile made viewable to the public with any information (that can be shared) is probably his account over on webshots.

Police: Skyler Rude Admits To Rape Of Girl

Oklahoma--A 17-year-old is currently facing first-degree rape, forcible sodomy and lewd molestation charges after reportedly engaging in sexual activity with an 8-year-old girl.

Skyler Ike Rude, of Enid, was taken into custody following an examination of the victim by several nurses who are said to have located multiple bruises on the child’s body as well as lacerations on her genital area.

They immediately contacted police who in turn interviewed the girl and according to an affidavit stated the most recent offense had occurred on December 2nd.

Officers then questioned Mr. Rude who not only admitted to raping the victim but also to molesting another girl as well.

The high school senior who had hoped one day of joining the military (see above MySpace profile) now resides in the Garfield County Juvenile Detention Center awaiting a $100,000 bond.

Besides the aforementioned MySpace account, Rude also maintained a private Facebook page found here.

Man Charged Following Net Contact

A 41-year-old Arizona man has been accused by police of having sexual relations with a 15-year-old girl he met on a social networking website.

The suspect, Aaron Witte, has since been charged with four counts of sexual misconduct with a minor following his arrest this past week.

The girl reportedly ran away from home multiple times and is believed to have posted that she needed somewhere to stay.

Police allege that Witte would then send the teen messages suggesting she could stay with him in Phoenix where the relationship at some point turned sexual.

I suspect the unnamed social networking website had probably been MySpace since his profile has recently been deleted.

Witte, who liked to use the screen name “aaronaz68“, also had private profiles on both Facebook and Twitter.

If you know of any additional information on Witte or other possible victims you are asked to call Silent Witness at 480-948-6377.

Aaron Dawkins Gets 25 Years For Rape Of 2-Year-Old

A 28-year-old Florida man has been sentenced to 25 years after pleading guilty to production of child pornography.

Aaron Christopher Dawkins, of Shalimar, had initially been taken into custody earlier this summer after a search warrant revealed pictures of himself sexually assaulting a 2-year-old.

Investigators say they had been tracking Dawkins since 2008 who is said to have had thousands of images and videos of children on his computer and other electronic devices.

An undercover Canadian police officer had tipped U.S. police to Dawkins activity.

Besides the above MySpace profile, Dawkins also maintained accounts on both Twitter and Facebook as well. 

Dawkins conviction reminds me of a recent great piece written by Rob Taylor over at the NewsReal Blog in which he takes on a University of Hawaii researcher who makes a disturbing claim that the legalization of child pornography could somehow be beneficial to society.

Of course, don't tell that to the family of the 2-year-old who was raped by the "collector"...

Police Charge Adam Bopp In MySpace Sex Case

Update: Pedophile Adam Bopp is guilty.

A 23-year-old Barrington man pled guilty Wednesday to charges that he sexually molested a teenage girl he met through a social networking website.

A Cook County judge sentenced Adam Bopp to 24 months probation and ordered him to undergo counseling for sex offenders. Additionally, Bopp must register as a sex offender for 10 years and must pay about $1,600 in fines, prosecutors said.

Illinois--A 22-year-old Barrington man has been arrested after police say he repeatedly sexually abused a 15-year-old girl he met using MySpace.

The suspect, Adam Michael Bopp, has been charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse, which if convicted could land him in prison up to 7 years.

Bopp is believed to have met the alleged victim in 2009 in which he reportedly engaged in sexual activity with the teen at his home sometime in July.

One of Bopp’s most recent MySpace accounts has since been closed but an older one is still available via the above mug shot photo.

Mr. Bopp has also used several aliases online including, “redangelblood”, “freakishkornkido" and “adamxoxoxo”.

A Facebook account of our well groomed suspect can be found by clicking here as well as a Bebo profile here.

Bopp appears to have posted ads on adult sex related websites that cater to cross-dressers and transvestites which leads me to believe he might have also posed as a teenage girl who believes “she” is some sort of vampire:

”...i don't care if u think i am a fake cuz u know what i wish i was fake some vampires enjoy killing people and feeding off them but i don't. I have even tried animal blood. i got the idea from twilight. i was just trying to find another way. it does work. i still feel the need to hunt humans but i am really trying hard not to.”
I will not be linking either the adult site (for content reasons) or the vampire link because I cannot 100% confirm Mr. Boop is the individual who appears to be suffering from a severe case of identity crisis.

Although by looking at the mug shot and knowing what we now know, I can totally see Adam Bopp in a dress sitting in his room and sucking the blood out of a dead squirrel.


UPDATE: Bopp sentenced to two years probation.

Seth Dixon & Walter Domanski Charged In Attempted Sex Abuse Of Girl, 6

A 28-year-old New Jersey man has been arrested for allegedly distributing child pornography over the Internet to an undercover officer.

Seth Dixon, of Brick, has since been charged with endangering the welfare of a minor and conspiracy to commit aggravated sexual assault.

Dixon was apprehended after investigators say they learned he had distributed child pornography to a 52-year-old man named Walter Domanski Jr. and later reportedly arraigned the former Long Beach Island lifeguard into meeting a 6-year-old girl for sexual purposes.

Bail was set at a silly $25,000 for the former self-proclaimed Jersey Shore guy who in the future would like to "punch" George W. Bush and later meet "Barak Obama" all while getting a job "one day".

On an adult sex website, Dixon once wrote:

"...I want to stop being the "nice guy" and let my Id play for awhile. Commitment-wise, I'm pretty casual... but if it becomes serious later on, I won't complain. I like my partners to be open to anything. The philosophy I live by is that you don't have to be loud and gregarious to be interesting. I'm in the mood for a cute girl to catch my eye. I look forward to setting up our first rendezvous. I'm not changing my life, I'm changing how I live it. If you contact me remember that emails with a naked photo get special consideration."

Besides the above MySpace profile, a Facebook page of Mr. Dixon can also be found by clicking here and please feel free to tweet him here as well in which he claims to be an Eagle Scout.

All the best Mr. Dixon...
