Child Porn Suspect Captured!

 

Federal officials arrested a child pornography suspect hours after putting out a nationwide alert.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations asked the public to help find an unidentified woman accused of producing child porn that featured a 4- to 6-year-old victim. She was only known as "Jane Doe."

Agents arrested Corine Danielle Motley, 25, late Wednesday in Okaloosa County, Florida.

"The quick identification of the victim and suspect in this case demonstrates the power of the press, social media and the general public in helping solve these cases," said ICE Director John Morton. "Literally hours after we asked the public for their assistance in identifying Jane Doe, a tip came in that led to her identification and arrest. There is nothing more satisfying than knowing that, due to these efforts, a child is now safe and her tormentor now in custody."
