This case study involves a CSAM production case beginning with a child victim in a local Texas jurisdiction, who was coerced to produce CSAM of herself, as well as of an infant in her care by a vicious online offender. As the case developed, it led investigators to an offender located in the United Kingdom. This presentation will highlight the initial efforts to pursue this offender once it was determined he was in the UK, and what was involved (good and bad) as this case grew. The following issues will be discussed: development of a task force; coordination with NCMEC; legal process challenges; victim Identification; forensic interview challenges and dissemination of data (sharing files.)
