Man employed at children's play center arrested on charges of child porn

CLERMONT, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

A Clermont man has been arrested on charges of possession and distribution of child pornography.  Aaron Murray, 20, is being held on a $518,000 bond at the Lake County Jail.

Detectives with the Lake County Sheriff's Cyber Crimes Unit said that in January they were alerted by authorities in Texas after a child in Dallas received pornographic images of children via email from someone believed to be in Lake County.  They said the person sending the images to the child was purporting to be 15 years old, using a fictitious name of "Tyler."

The investigation led detectives to a home in Clermont, where they executed a search warrant. Investigators said they located an iPod belonging to Murray, and upon searching the device, they found an email address associated with the fictitious persona, as well as at least 102 images of child pornography.

Officials said Murray is employed at a child play center in Clermont that is owned by his family.

Detectives are continuing to investigate this case and want to know if there are any other children who have been contacted over the Internet by someone using the identity of "Tyler."

Parents are encouraged to talk with their children and notify detectives if they have had any such interactions. Parents can call the Sheriff's Office at 352-343-2101, or 352-343-9529 during normal business hours.
