Detroit man allegedly behind widely shared child porn video arrested in Alabama


The Montgomery Advertiser reports that authorities were at first unsure where the video originated but an investigation turned up that Moore is a suspect and might be in Alabama.

Police are asking members of the public not to share a viral Facebook video of a child performing a sex act on an adult, The Vindicator's broadcast partner, 21 WFMJ-TV reported.

Many people are sharing the video in hopes of identifying the man shown abusing the child. Investigators said they believed Moore was a flight risk and needed to be brought into custody. Investigators say she would not cooperate with police and has since been charged with interfering with prosecution. "If you receive this video through social media, report it to the social media platform and delete it immediately, " Garrett added.

A man from Alabama was arrested in connection to a child pornography video that was posted on Facebook last week and went viral.

Alabama Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force say Moore will be transported to the Elmore County Detention Facility Tuesday evening.

Moore has active warrants from Detroit, Michigan with full extradition and multiple pending charges in Alabama.


A woman, Tonya Moore, was taken into custody Monday night in connection with the investigation. Police in Colorado Springs updated followers Thursday on Facebook, saying the video posted on January 31 was spreading across "a multitude" of social media platforms.

Meanwhile, Montgomery police have arrested 42 year old Jerrell Washington for distributing the video. "Regardless of intention, sharing such imagery is harmful and illegal", the spokesperson said.

It is alleged he would rape the girls, record it and share the videos online.

The video spread as many across the region attempted to get the word out and find the person responsible.

"Sharing said image is considered distribution and you could be criminally charged for doing so", the department said on their Facebook page.
