Authorities trying to aid two girls seen in a sexually explicit videotape say they have identified one and were showing images of the other Thursday in the hopes that someone would recognize her.
Police want to know the identity of this little girl, who appears to be 4 or 5.
The tape was turned in to police by a man who said he found it in the desert.
It shows a man performing sex acts on a girl around 4 or 5 years old, and shows a girl believed to be 10 to 12 years old appearing in “some kind of peep show,” said Nye County sheriff’s detective David Boruchowitz.
Authorities hope identifying the girls will help them locate the abuser.
Still photos of the younger girl, fully clothed, have been widely broadcast. Boruchowitz announced Thursday that the older girl had been identified.
He said the photos of the younger girl were being released because her life could be in danger.
“She could still be in this situation and (be) abused currently as we speak,” Boruchowitz said.
“The easiest way to explain it is if you can imagine the absolute worst things that can happen to a little girl at the hands of an adult male, that has happened and beyond,” he said of the video. “It is by far the most heinous and horrible thing that you can possibly imagine on there.” Watch authorities describe the disturbing case »
The older girl did not appear to have been sexually abused on the tape and the footage appeared to have been shot from a different room, Boruchowitz said.
Just repost it at your site, right? Someone could know her. This is outrageous.
