Kenneth Cyrus Accused of Uploading Child Porn to Facebook
|Kenneth Cyrus -- find him on Facebook.|
According to police, the married, 36-year-old Phoenix resident uploaded child pornography to Facebook -- ya know, the website where you upload photos for all of your friends to see.
So, the fine folks at Facebook phoned up the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children after finding one of these images uploaded to one of its servers, according to court documents obtained by New Times.
Finding the owner of the Facebook page was easy, since it said "Kenneth Cyrus" on it, and police found the IP address of the last person to log into the account was at Cyrus' Phoenix home.
Police served the search warrant on Cyrus' place -- on the 14000 block of North 20th Place -- yesterday, and found more naked pictures of children, according to the court documents.
There were about 100 photos of naked kids that were "immediately located," according to the documents, and all the kids looked younger than 10 years old.
Cyrus told police he looks at these types of pictures "once or twice a week," the documents state, and he viewed them because he was "curious."
Police note in a probable-cause statement that two kids -- around the age of the children in the photos -- also live in the home with Cyrus and his wife.
Cyrus faces 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, and his bond was set at $10,000.
