Crime News That Matters

Was a Florida child porn suspect planning a school shooting?

Vinh S. Nguyen

21-year-old Vinh S. Nguyen was arrested back in September by police in Plantation, Florida. Nguyen was allegedly using his phone to record a woman in a mall dressing room. When police went through his phone on the voyeurism investigation, they allegedly found several images of child porn on Nguyen’s phone along with instructions on how to “frighten young female victims online.”

If that wasn’t enough, investigators also found that Nguyen was reportedly searching for crime scene photos of the school shooting that took place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. He is also said to have searched for local gun ranges and directions to a Fort Lauderdale elementary school that he has no connection to.

While Nguyen has not been charged over anything related to the school, did Florida police just prevent another Sandy Hook? If you’ll recall, Sandy Hook gunman Adam Lanza is said to have held pro-pedophile views.

Nguyen is currently in federal custody on the child porn charges and could be sentenced to 20 years in prison.

I’ll try to keep an eye on this story for further developments.
