    KS - Elliott Bennett for child pornography, Wichita, 2010

    An excellent reminder about how child porn collectors carefully organize their collection and keep it close at hand. Nice try. I wonder whose basement he was living in?

    WICHITA, KS—A Wichita man who hid his external computer drive containing thousands of images of child pornography in a tub of ashes next to his fireplace has been sentenced to 174 months in federal prison, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said today.

    Elliott L. Bennett, 47, Wichita, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of distributing child pornography. In his plea, he admitted that in October 2010 he was using an encrypted peer-to-peer program to collect and distribute child pornography. The investigation began when an FBI agent in New York downloaded child pornography Bennett had stored on a peer-to-peer network using the alias “Damienzden.” Investigators followed an electronic trail to Bennett’s residence in Wichita.

    In December 2010, a detective with the Wichita Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force served a search warrant at Bennett’s home. Investigators found computer equipment, but an external drive was missing. During a second search of the residence, investigators found the missing drive buried in a tub of ashes next to the fireplace in the basement where Bennett slept. Forensic examination of Bennett’s computer equipment identified thousands of images of carefully organized child pornography. Bennett filed the images designating levels of access such as “regular user” and “VIP special access required,” based upon the level of access those users were providing him to access their child pornography files.


    Bennett considered himself a "lost boy".....at age 47:

    I have a sinking feeling that the Wichita Pride group is not very proud of Mr. Bennett. Shame on him. He served as a past Secretary of the board and was, at the time of his arrest, the Information and Technology chairperson, the Communications Director and the Marketing and Advertising Chairperson:
