35-year-old Timothy Gilmore, of Cape Girardeau County, Missouri, has been arrested for allegedly posting child porn online of a 16-year-old girl from Fort Wayne, Indiana, but the charges don’t even come close to telling the whole story. It’s not made known in the article how Gilmore met his victim, but he allegedly used the pervert trifecta of Tumblr, Kik and Snapchat to communicate with her. According to authorities, Gilmore made the girl refer to him as ‘Master T’ while he referred to her as ‘slave’. This may indicate to some people that this was a consensual BDSM relationship, but not only did Gilmore have another woman, who the victim was made to address as Mistress, order the teen around, but Gilmore allegedly wanted the girl to live with him when she turned 18 so he could breed future sex slaves with her. The child porn charges stem from when Gilmore is said to have posted images of the girl on Tumblr. Along with Kik, Tumblr is a popular destination among child porn traders.
What is it with Missouri and guys who want sex slaves? Ok, that’s actually unfair to Missouri, but this story reminds me of Edward Bagley Sr. of Lebanon, Missouri. He took in a 16-year-old runaway and made her his personal sex slave. He not only traded her out to his friends but he sewed her vagina shut as a punishment. Sadly, that could have been the life of Gilmore’s victim if he had his way. He may be only looking at 15 years behind bars but he deserves much more.
UPDATE 10/8/2017: Gilmore was sentenced to 15 years in prison.
