Surveillance Video Still Shot of Unidentified Pedophile
Spartanburg, SCÂ - An elderly man shuffled aroundÂ the Dorman Centre Wal-Mart on Sunday afternoon, aimlessly looking at things and walking back and forth near the front of the store.Â When asked if he needed help, the man said he couldn’t find his car, and went outside to sit on a bench next to a female employee who was taking a break.Â He then struck up a conversation with the employee that got really weird, really fast.
The man pulled out his wallet to show the woman some pictures. Â Thinking that a kindly grandfather was showing her family shots, the woman leaned in for a look, but the first few pictures were of women in their twenties. Â The man started talking about his “girlfriends”, and the things he liked to do to them. Â The woman began to try to extricate herself from the conversation without appearing rude, but then the man showed her a picture she will likely never forget. Â “This is one of my girlfriends,” he told her.
The picture was worn around the edges, like it had been pulled out may times before.Â It was of a little girl, maybe six or seven.Â She was wearing a little shirt, but was otherwise naked.Â She was leaned back against a bed, legs spread and posed in what the shocked employee said was a very sexual position.Â Â And just like that, the man out away his wallet, walked to his light green, four-foor Subaru, and drove away.
The employee went inside and reported what the man had shown her, and police were called.Â The surveillance tapes were pulled and the man identified by the employee – but that doesn’t help much.Â He’s white, in his seventies at least, and walks with a bit of a shuffle, so he may have early Parkinson’s or even early to mid-stage Alzheimer’s disease.Â He’s probably around six feet tall, based on his height next to the carts in the video surveillance recorders.Â And the picture could have been taken anytime – the employee described it as “possibly old”.
Police aren’t saying they want to arrest the man at this point, but they do want to talk to him.Â There’s a little girl in that picture, and authorities want to find out who she is and make sure she is safe, even if she isn’t a child anymore.Â Â If you or anyone you know has seen this man in the Spartanburg, South Carolina area, please call your local police department.Tags: Child Pornography, Pedophile, Spartanburg, Wal-Mart
