KPD Message with link to child pornography circulating in our area

A video showing a man and a young girl engaged in a sex act is now the center of a multi-state sex crimes investigation.

Federal authorities have been alerted to the video and are investigating its origin.

Viewing or sharing child pornography is illegal, and can lead to criminal charges. Do not download or share it, even if you are doing so with good intentions. Do not send the video to KCBD or share it at all.


The messages have been spreading through Facebook's Messenger feed and have been reported nationwide.

A spokesman for Central Alabama CrimeStoppers said you should report the video to the social media platform and call your local law enforcement office.

However, police would like to send out a warning against sharing the video. She sharing the video only makes the issue worse. Facebook will notify the proper authorities when an inappropriate video is reported.


Sharing a video on Facebook with "the right person" won't help solve a crime and it could land you in trouble, police say.

"In addition to investigating the circumstances of the assault, investigators are working to determine how and by whom the video was shared", Garrett said.

Anyone who comes across the video is advised to report it, notify Facebook immediately and delete the video file from their account, according to several police departments, majority in Eastern states.
