ALBUQUERQUE – Acting on a tip from California, Bernalillo County sheriff’s deputies went to the home of Edward Christy, 57, and took a peek through one of his windows. What they saw was a young girl tied to a chair by her wrists and neck with Christy taking pictures. The girl ended up being a runaway 16-year-old from California who had met Christy over at AgeMatch.com (you can see his profile here), a kinda creepy site that matches older men with younger ladies. I found her profile as well , but there are no pics. Christy states the relationship was a consensual one and that after exchanging naked pics and pleasantries online, the girl threatened to kill herself if she could not be with Christy. Fearing for her well-being, Christy drove to Cali and picked her up. On the way back, he picked up some bondage gear and a dog crate for the teen. What a gentleman!
Both Christy and the teen admitted to having sex a couple of times and though he initially denied knowing the girl was actually 16 and not 19 as her online profile claimed, email exchanges later disproved his claims. Christy is now charged with rape, sexual exploitation of a minor and custodial interference. He is being held under a $200,000 cash-only bond.
Watch the following video for more creepy information about Christy – like how he acts towards a neighbor’s 12-year-old granddaughter and the fact that kids hang out in his home. Also in the video is the extremely hot Alex Tomlin – my new favorite reporter.
