Pedophile Tracking Indiana Man Sentenced in KY Child Porn Case

An Indiana man was sentenced in Madison County on several child pornography charges.

Police say back in November of 2015, Brandon Johnson, 19, took a Greyhound bus to Berea and showed up at Foley Middle School.

He told the school’s principal he was there to meet his 13-year-old girlfriend, who he’d met on Facebook. After investigating, police discovered Johnson’s phone had over 100 nude photos and videos he and the girl had sent to each other.

Wrongful Death Families of Missing KY Couple Still Searching

The families of missing Kentucky couple Bobby Jones and Crystal Warner are asking the public to help them in their search.

Jones and Warner went missing on July 3rd. They were headed back to their home in Florence after visiting family in Letcher County, when they decided to stop at their cabin in Washington County. They had been renting the cabin to Craig Pennington.

According to family members, Pennington hadn’t paid rent in a while and Jones and Warner were going to the cabin to talk to him about that.

http://liarcatchers.com/wrongful_death.html

Now, Pennington is behind bars for the murders of Bobby Jones and Crystal Warner.

Their bodies have not been found, but police say there was enough evidence to charge Pennington.

Jones and Warner’s families are now searching for their loved ones. They started at the cabin where Pennington lived, but they gathered on the steps of the Springfield courthouse Wednesday to plan their next steps.

Warner’s family told LEX 18 that they will search Washington County and Jones’s family will search Scott County near where the car was found last Wednesday near I-75.

“One dead end after another,” Crystal Warner’s cousin Tammy Mattingly told LEX 18. “People are wanting to help, but they don’t know where to start. I think that comes down to the missing pieces that we’re trying to find, and get from police.”

The families of Bobby Jones and Crystal Warner ask that everyone support them in their search for the couple’s bodies and to not forget about their search.

If you have any information about Crystal or Bobby’s whereabouts, you’re asked to message the Facebook Page dedicated to their search. Click here for that page.

Pedophile Tracking NYPD Officer Pleads Guilty

An NYPD officer previously stationed in the Midtown North Precinct pleaded guilty Tuesday to sexually exploiting children and buying child pornography, a statement from the U.S. Department of Justice said.

The officer, 39-year-old Alberto Randazzo, had served as a sergeant in the NYPD for 15 years. He was outed after a witness found texts and emails in his phone in which he asked mothers to film themselves abusing their children for his pleasure. Randazzo pleaded guilty to two counts of conspiracy to sexually exploit a child and one count of buying child pornography. He faces 15 to 30 years for each count.

http://liarcatchers.com/pedophile_tracking.html

Randazzo would go to dating websites like Ashley Madison and Match.com to find women who would abuse their children so he could view it, according to prior court statements. He did this for at least three years, from 2010 to 2013. In February 2013, a witness caught his texts and emails with the mothers molesting their children and confronted him.

“When the witness confronted him, Randazzo admitted his sexual interest in mothers having sex with their children,” the DOJ statement said.

Internal affairs at NYPD got a search warrant for the sergeant’s apartment based on the evidence they had from the texts and emails, and they found several photos and videos of child pornography in his apartment. Many of the pieces of pornography were created by him, the DOJ said.

Randazzo was charged in Queens Criminal Court, but while he was out on bail, Homeland Security Investigations agents found he had downloaded approximately 30 videos of child pornography. They arrested him, and federal authorities took over the investigation.

Randazzo’s attorney did not immediately return a request for comment.

Insurance Fraud Jackson, Miss. Woman Charged

Attorney General Jim Hood announced today that a West Point woman has been formally charged with insurance fraud and wire fraud.

EDWARDS

EDWARDS

Georgenna Edwards, 27, was indicted in April by a Clay County grand jury on one count of insurance fraud and one count of wire fraud. She was arraigned Monday in Clay County Circuit Court before Judge Lee S. Coleman.

 http://liarcatchers.com/insurance_fraud.html

The indictment alleges that Edwards submitted a false disability form to an insurance company in order to obtain money. The wire fraud charge is based on the fraudulent form being transmitted via facsimile from Clay County to Union County, according to the indictment.

 

Edwards was released on a $10,000 bond. If convicted, she faces the possible sentences of three years in prison and $5,000 in fines for insurance fraud, and five years in prison and $10,000 in fines for wire fraud.

 

A charge is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

 

The case was investigated by Ronnie Odom of the Attorney General’s Insurance Fraud Unit and will be prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Stanley Alexander.
