Kik Kreepers of the week

kik

39-year-old James Hames, of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was arrested for allegedly taking a 14-year-old girl he met on Kik back to his place for sex after sneaking her out of her house at 2AM.

For the next story we stay in Baton Rouge where 25-year-old Matthew Chaney Walker is accused of allegedly using Kik to convince girls from ages 8 to 14, yes, that’s an eight, to send them explicit pictures of themselves then would extort them for more. No eight-year-old needs to be on Kik just for this very reason and if I’m not mistaken their terms of service say that you must be at least 13 which is still a questionable age for this app.

While your kids may think that Kik is just a messaging app used to talk to their friends it is also a known tool for pedophiles and sex offenders to gain access to your kids. Again I implore you to make sure you know what apps your kids are using and who’s in their friends list.

“Panties panties panties m4m”

Nathan Allen Sayler

Nathan Allen Sayler

Who would have thought that a guy posting an ad on craigslist looking for panties would be some kind of sexual predator? Especially after this tasteful ad…

An ad posted on Craigslist titled “Panties panties panties m4m” read: “I’m looking for. Wife’s girlfriends daughters mothers whatever or who ever panties willing to sell or trade??? Cute or sexy. Don’t matter just want some new ones!!!”

Apparently anybody with a shred of common sense which included a Yellowstone County Detective in Montana. After responding to the ad the man who allegedly placed the ad, 38-year-old Nathan Allen Sayler of Billings, Montana, eventually turned the conversation to wanting to trade young girls and had sent child porn to the detective to prove he was for real. Sayler has been charged with sexual abuse of children and solicitation of sexual abuse of children. I would imagine that covers child porn as well.

It really does take all kinds but the really sick ones are on craigslist.

A Kornukopia of Kik Kreepers

36-year-old teacher, Cory Grant Leonard, of Macomb Township, Michigan, was arrested for allegedly sharing child porn on Kik. He also worked at a daycare.

38-year-old Joshua L. Pierce of Haines City, Florida, was arrested for allegedly using Kik to obtain child porn.

24-year-old Joshua Richard Harrison of Paw Paw, Michigan, is also accused of allegedly sharing child porn on Kik.

22-year-old Matthew Bondi of Deerfield Beach, Florida, was arrested for allegedly soliciting a 14-year-old boy through Kik. What’s interesting about this story is that Bondi was a Pasco County Sheriff’s deputy before being fired after his arrest.

33-year-old Joshua Hood of Clarksburg, West Virginia, was arrested for allegedly sharing explicit pictures of a 2-year-old female relative on Kik.

30-year-old Richard J. Vandexter of Williamstown, New Jersey, was arrested for allegedly sending explicit images to minors over Kik.

Man uses fake facebook to prey on teens, wife stands by him

Gregory Mathis

Gregory Mathis

The Kentucky Attorney General’s office say that 42-year-old Gregory Mathis, of Louisville, allegedly posed as a 15-year-old on Facebook to solicit explicit photos from underage girls. His also said to have used Kik to maintain contact with his victims. Investigators say that when they searched Mathis’ phone they found explicit videos of his victims. I’d like to hear more about how they found out that Mathis was allegedly preying on these girls. Even the Attorney General’s website doesn’t mention that.

The reason I ask is because Mathis’ wife has some doubt that her husband is the predator that Kentucky investigators believe he is…

“So, what they’re accusing him of doing is creating a false facebook account and then using it to get images of minors,” asked Stephan Johnson. “And you don’t believe that?” Adams answered, “No, I do not. Why not? I just, like I said, he is a good dad, we have two kids of our own and I just don’t see him doing it.”

Johnson followed up, “If he didn’t do anything…what do you think brought authorities to your house?” Adams answered, “Like I said, I do think maybe there was something going on…but not to the extreme as what they’re saying.”

Adams said she was allowed to speak to her husband just before he was taken into custody.

She explained, “And he wanted to explain to me in his own words what the situation was because he’s like…’it’s not how it sounds.”

Is it possible that Mathis has been set up or the crime isn’t as bad as the article makes it out to be? It’s possible but not likely. Someone would have had to have gone to a lot of trouble to plant child porn on his phone. That’s some Lifetime movie of the week kind of framing if you ask me.

FBI seeking 241 victims of MySpace/Stickam predator

Lucas Michael Chansler

Lucas Michael Chansler

31-year-old Lucas Michael Chansler, formerly of St. John’s, Florida, is spending 105 years in prison on child porn charges after pleading guilty in 2014. Chanlser would pose as a 15-year-old on MySpace, Stickam, and AIM to solicit underage girls for explicit pictures. Once he started getting pictures from the victim he would extort them into giving him more by threatening to post them online or send them to the victim’s friend. All told, federal investigators say that Chansler had 350 victims. So far only 109 of his victims have been identified and the FBI is still searching for the other 241 victims. The feds also say that pictures of 49 of his victims are still being traded among pedophiles today. This article has a list of many of the usernames he used on the various platforms.

For those of you who may not remember, Stickam was a video chat site that was constantly embroiled in controversy. The website shut down for good in early 2013.

Additional details about this story and tips on how to avoid this kind of extortion can be found at the FBI website.

Married Kik Kreeper used modeling scam to solicit pics from girls as young as 12

kik

I’ve posted about the modeling scam many times before. Basically how it works is an online predator will pose as someone in charge of a modeling agency and will solicit underage girls for explicit photos or even try to get the girls to travel them for either molestation or child prostitution. I’ve posted about the scam being used on MySpace, Facebook, and craigslist so it should come as no surprise it’s showing up on Kik.

An unnamed man from Tallmadge, Ohio, is being investigated after his wife allegedly found a secret cell phone he was using to solicit underage girls on Kik, one may have even been as young as 12. He would allegedly tell the girls that he would need the photos in order to see if he would take them on as clients.

Normally this is where I would tell parents to make sure they know which apps their kids are using and who their friends on those apps are. However this time I’m going to add that maybe you should talk to your daughters, and sons if they’re aspiring models, that authentic modeling agencies probably wouldn’t circumvent parents in searching for talent and they definitely wouldn’t use Kik. You may also want to remind them that not everyone can make it into modeling and that it’s one of those ‘win the lottery type odds’ kind of careers.

UPDATE 7/27/2015: The suspect has been identified as 28-year-old Justin Snyder.

Yet another round of Kik Kreepers

Police in Pasco County, Florida, say that 22-year-old Carlos Perez would pose as a female on Kik and would send photos of a nude women to underage boys on Kik and would allegedly get explicit photos of the boys in return. Perez was a high school wrestling coach and allegedly targeted two kids he knew through the wrestling program. of the school.

45-year-old Eric Jenney of Westfield, Massachusetts, was recently arrested after police say that he was allegedly part of a child porn ring that traded files on Kik. Investigators also say that the very explicit pictures were shared between adults and minors.

Remember, as I keep saying, Kik is a well documented favorite tool of both pedophiles and sex offenders.

Wash. man turned out his stepdaughter on craigslist for others to rape

childprost

Normally I don’t like to post stories where the suspects have not been named however this one is so horrid that it needs to be shared.

Recently a 56-year-old man from Marysville, Washington, allegedly admitted to advertising his 6-year-old daughter on craigslist for others to molest. He’s also accused of raping his stepdaughter as well and also faces child porn charges for allegedly recording his step-daughter being molested by someone else. Investigators say that the man may have posted 190 craigslist ads for the girl. One woman in Texas is said to have made arrangements with the man to molest the girl’s daughter.

Where was mom you ask? You should know better by now. Mom was allegedly in on it and is facing child rape and child porn charges as well. Investigators say she can be seen in one video playing on her phone while her daughter is being molested.

This is going on through craigslist all the time. For every one of these scumbags that are caught it makes me wonder how many are out there doing this with impunity. This jackhole allegedly posted close to 200 ads. It doesn’t sound like too many of them were flagged by craigslist community policing. Then again when you’re community consists of so many pedophiles how much policing is really getting done?

Another round of Kik Kreepers

25-year-old Carlos Javier Rojas Paz is/was a substitute teacher in Broward County, Florida, who is accused of ‘having sex’ (statutory) with three of his students. In at least one case he allegedly used Kik to stay in contact with one of his victims.

Another teacher, 33-year-old Patrick Newman of Louisville, Kentucky, allegedly coerced a 13-year-old boy to send him explicit pictures on Kik and then traded them with other pedophiles on Kik.

Kik, as a messaging app, isn’t inherently evil. It’s just another way for people to communicate. However as discussed before it has become a fundamental tool used by online predators. I advise every parent out there to see if their child is using this app on their phones and to find out who the people are on their friends list.

9 arrested in Polk County, Florida, child porn sting

Daniel Dunfee

Daniel Dunfee

Recently the Polk County Sheriff’s Office arrested 9 men in a child porn sting. Those arrested were…

Daniel Dunfee, 21
James Crawford, 34
Arthur F. Lee, 55
Steven Rivera, 26
Santos Palacios, 29
Eric Reynolds, 32
Roger Coulson, 63
William Humphrey, 24
Richard Murray, 22

Before we get into the rest of the sting I want to focus on Dunfee in particular. He allegedly solicited two underage girls from Illinois for nude pictures through Kik and Snapchat. One he got pictures from his victims he would threaten to post them online if they didn’t send more. This is one of the oldest ploys in the online predator playbook. It used to be that you had to know someone’s Kik username before you could message them but now there are several apps within Kik that allow you to meet other users and there are no age barriers.

If Polk County sounds familiar it’s because it’s my favorite police department in the entire country. Sheriff Grady Judd has been featured on this site for years for his dauntless work not only against online predators but also against human trafficking through sites like craigslist and Backpage. The pedo-defenders like to claim that Sheriff Judd is motivated by greed for his department through federal grants rather than duty and are incarcerating innocent individuals. I doubt that since between the 9 men arrested they all racked up 205 counts of child pornography charges. But please do tell me how these scumbags were victims of entrapment.

UPDATE 8/27/2015: Dunfee was recently charged with 426 additional child porn charges bringing his total to 436 charges.
