The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received a report in August that a Yahoo user later identified as Barnes sent a graphic photo of a man and a girl, according to The Gainesville Sun. Police got a search warrant and searched his computer. They found multiple folders of child porn hidden in subfolders. One, titled “too much” held at least 55 images.
The report said some pictures were of sexual intercourse with children as young as six.
