(Story broke 5/3/2017)
30-year-old Billy Duane Adkins, of Huntington, West Virginia, is accused of allegedly sending child porn to a 13-year-old Montana girl using the mobile messaging app Kik. Not only that, but one of the images he sent is said to have been of himself performing sexual acts with a girl under the age of 6. Adkins’ Kik user name is said to have been ‘bigbillz36’. Looking at his mugshot the biggest bill he’s probably ever seen is a five.
When police searched his devices, they reportedly found over 130 images of child porn. At the time this story broke, Adkins was being held on $50,000 bond. That’s probably more big bills than he’s seen in a lifetime.
I can’t stress enough just how much Kik is full of sex offenders, pedophiles, and child porn collectors. If you let your kids use this app, you have to know who they’re talking to on it. I would recommend that if they can’t identify their friends on Kik with a first and last name and they’re not local, those friends need to be removed from their friends list.
