A Typical Child Exploitation Case Solved by ADF DEI

August 8, 2018

The investigation began when law enforcement officials received a report that images that were consistent with child pornography had been uploaded to a social media platform. The images were immediately flagged, and investigators swiftly obtained a search warrant to gain access to the suspect's residence. Once inside the residence, members of the State Police Computer Crime Unit conducted an on-scene forensic examination of all electronic media, including computers, phones, and other electronic devices. This examination was conducted with the utmost care and attention to detail to ensure that all potential evidence was discovered and preserved. The examination proved to be invaluable, as it revealed a trove of images and videos of sexual abuse of an under age child, leading investigators to identify a resident of the household as the suspect. Through their tireless efforts, these investigators were able to bring a dangerous criminal to justice and protect innocent children from further harm.  

Using ADF Digital Evidence Investigator®, investigators discovered images and videos of sexual abuse of an under age child and were able to identify a resident of the household as the suspect. Specifically, investigators located thumbcache images that resulted in identifying a female child that was being sexually abused and identified the suspect.
