    Woman Trades Child Pornography For Rides

    Prosecutors say this shocks the senses. It made me sick and I didn't read the entire lengthy article.

    Donna May Zauner aged 44 of Winona has been charged with dissemination and posession of child pornography. Apparently this woman posed children in her care in provocative poses for Alec James Tafolla aged 52 of Clermont, Delaware.

    It looks like they met online. Where the he*l she was going long distance in a car with this guy I am not sure. Instead of paying for gas she paid him in child pornography?

    Now I can say I have heard it all. You gotta be kidding me.

    The two littles are ges 6 and 2. They have been put in foster care. The 6 year old was too emotional to be interviewed. I guess so.

    Some other guy figures into this, and he's the one called the law. Bottom line is Donna May Zauner said a man with a gun forced her to take the photographs of the children.

    Oh she's so going to love lockup when they find out what she did.

    I fear this is about more than pornography. The girls were with her when Tafolla, the one who bought the porn, moved her three times.

    She met a man three years ago online and they became friends. Then, awhile back she decides to move from Las Vegas to NY to live with her parents. She places an ad for a ride on Craigslist , and Tafolla answers. I guess the situation with the parents didn't work out, so the online friend allows her and the girls to move in with him in Winona. Tafolla moves them a second time. When the man gets sick of her and kicks her out (just my opinion; article doesn't say that), Tafolla moves her again. After she leaves, the man finds the porn on his computer in an e-mail and turns her in.

    The children were with her during the three "rides". So WTH happened to them along the way when they were actually with Tafolla?! And who are they? The article only says "children in her care". I don't want their identities to be revealed, but who in the world would let their children in that woman's care. Only someone worse than her, I suppose.

    Oh, the forced at gunpoint story? Pfffttt!!!

    Well they captured Tafolla in Tennessee. Forgot to say he split Minnesotta after speaking with and admitting the pornography was sent to his phone.

    The worse is Donna Zauner is crying she's the victim in all this.

    Bessie, ya know I thought the same exact thing. This guy had access to these babies all along the way mvoing momma how many times?

    Sadly I had looked up Trafolla and found a social network for him. The saddest, saddest, darkest cloud smacked me gob in the face. Him holding a sweet child who by all appearances was one of these children no doubt. There's just a look these poor kids get about them. It's written in their faux smile and their positioning. I hate seeing that. Hate it.

    Lord, please for the littles, please let these kids get help.

    These two upstanding citizens are charged seperately.

    This article said they were tracked down to a motel. They were together with the babes. More child pornography was on Zauner's phone.

    ok, I'm going back to my happy place now ...

    the only saving grace I can think of is that they're young enough that they can still have a promising future if they're placed with an appropriate family this time (& of course, with lots of therapy and hugs)

    I wonder why only 1 count each? They often charge for each photo. Maybe they will be upgrading the charges later. I hope so. These 2 should never see the outside of a prison again.

    Thread: Most interesting classic unsolved murder cases

    This thread currently has over 350 cases with a brief synopsis of each and we are still adding additional cases.

    You can access a spreadsheet that lists the cases in alphabetical order with the page & post number so that you can locate a particular case you may be interested in. It also contains links to any cases that already have a thread on WS.

    Many cases do not have a thread. Please feel free to start one in the appropriate forum if you would like to look into one. Should you start a thread on one of these cases, please let me know so that I can add the link to the spreadsheet.

    Here is the link for the spreadsheet in alphabetical order:

    BBM!

    Yeah right........I think that is malarkey. She just got caught so of course she blames her own wrongdoings on a male.

    How many times have we heard that excuse?

    at least the 'mom' isn't getting outta jail any time soon

    A magistrate this week ordered that Donna Mary Zauner be held without bail. The man, Alec James Tafolla, was due in court Friday. Online court records on Saturday didn't list what happened in that court appearance.

    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    Hope there are folks who know what they have done are waiting for them when they arrive at jail. Even inmates have a code and what they've done has broken it.
