Previous story: The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s officials are asking the public to help them identify a suspected child pornography producer and rescue a victim.
They believe that a young man between the ages of 18-20 is producing child pornography in which he is engaging in a sequel act with an 12-18 month-old baby. (The pig tail of the little girl can be see in one photo). ICE believe this event happened approximately a year ago as they are going by a ball cap John Doe the Predator is wearing.
They are focusing on an area in north Texas and believe the photos were taken sometime in April of 2013. The young man who ICE is calling “John Doe” was wearing a brand new ball cap with the logo “Shut Up N Play,” and they know that this particular cap was distributed within north Texas during that time period.
ICE is attempted to locate the child and rescue her by finding out who this young man is, and asks the public to call them with any info or tips and to NOT try to apprehend the suspect themselves.
If you have any information please call the tip line at 1-866-DHS-2-ICE or leave a tip here.
