    Cyber trail led to porn

    Officer Reginald Humbert was trying to catch a dragon slayer.
    "Stevedragonslayer," to be exact -- the screen name used by someone playing movies over the Internet of children having sex.
    Humbert works for the Pennsylvania State Police Computer Crimes Task Force, out of Moon Township, a community of about 22,000 that's 12 miles northwest of Pittsburgh. His digital detective work tracked down a man in Wichita, indicted by a federal grand jury this week in what police here are calling the city's biggest child pornography case.
    "Stevedragonslayer" logged into Yahoo chat rooms nearly a dozen times. But it was the visit on Sept. 9 that caught the attention of a man in Leetsdale, Pa.
    An FBI affidavit filed at the Wichita federal courthouse outlines an investigation spanning three months and 1,050 miles, and yielding more than 16,000 sexually explicit images of children. It led to Steven Craig Perrine, 52, being charged this week with possession and distribution of child pornography.
    The Leetsdale man, signed in as "Dana_hotlips05," began chatting with Stevedragonslayer.
    Stevedragonslayer asked Dana_hotlips05 whether he wanted to watch a "hot video," wrote FBI Special Agent Rebecca Martin of Wichita in an affidavit to a federal judge.
    The video showed girls who looked under the age of 10 walking around a bathroom naked. The man immediately called Leetsdale police. He remained online, Martin said, "in hopes that an officer would arrive before the video ended."
    Leetsdale Officer Wayne Drish contacted Humbert, of the computer crimes task force in the neighboring Allegheny County community of Moon.
    Perrine was already on probation from a 2002 arrest for sexual exploitation of a child. Sedgwick County District Court records show that Perrine pleaded guilty in 2003 to having sexual images of a 7-year-old.
    FBI Special Agent Martin told the judge in her affidavit that the old case mimicked the present one. In 2003, Perrine pleaded guilty to sending images and movies through Yahoo chat rooms using an instant messenger and Web camera.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    I can't imagine the nightmares that law enforcement who deal with these sort of crimes must have. They're truly unsung heros.
