Child Pornography Suspect Arrested
NBCDFW.COM is reporting that the alleged sexual predator pictured above has been captured. The suspect, originally identified only as ‘John Doe’, is now identified as 17 year-old Kraigen A. Grooms. The arrest took place in Ottumwa, Iowa, where the suspect is currently held on a $100,000 cash only bond. He faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted. He’s accused of sexually abusing a baby and making videos of the abuse.
Federal authorities and law enforcement across Texas are on the hunt for man they think produced child pornography as part of a larger ring. The suspect is a white male between the ages of 18 and 20 years old.
One of his victims is a black female child who now may be around 2 years old. She was a toddler when the abuse by this person began, and is may still be with the suspect. Based on clues in the photographs, investigators believe that the suspect may be in the North Texas area.
Anyone who thinks they may recognize this person is asked to contact Homeland Security Investigations at 1-866-347-2423. Tips can also be emailed by completing HSI’s online tip form. The creator of one of the websites and the suspected ring leader, Jonathan Johnson, was arrested in February.
