The FBI says it’s epidemic, and that at any given moment, 750,000 child predators are online.
The youngest victim ever, rescued a few weeks ago, was an infant, two months old. “This should serve as a warning,” said NBI anti-human-trafficking chief Janet Francisco, who leads the case.
He was charged with a series of crimes, including murdering a 12-year-old Filipina girl, multiple counts of sexual abuse, torture, rape and human trafficking and is awaiting trial in the Philippines.
He allegedly masterminded a pay-per-view service where footage of children being tortured and abused was livestreamed for predators on the dark web, au reports.
There were calls for him to face the death penalty after it was alleged he directed a child porn video of an 18-mont-old baby being tortured which he sold for up to $10,000.
