St. Louis, MO – An investigation into the online activities of 47-year-old Kenneth Kyle began back in December of 2009 when authorities discovered someone used a computer at his address to send 100 child porn images to an undercover FBI agent on a peer-to-peer file-sharing service. The discovery led to a search of his San Francisco home on March 10, while he was out of the country. Authorities found evidence of child pornography on his home computer and Kyle was arrested upon his return to the states on March 15. On March 19, federal prosecutors charged Kyle with transportation of child pornography. Information on Kyle’s computer then led authorities to Ballwin, Missouri. There, they arrested Tessa Van Vlerah – a 20-year-old college student and single mother of a 13-month-old child. Authorities believe Van Vlerah not only assisted Kyle in the molestation of her child, but participated as well. And the FBI has the pictures to prove it. Kyle allegedly made several trips to Missouri over the past year where he and Van Vlerah would go to motels to sexually assault the baby. It is believed that the child was just 5-months-old when the molestation began.
Van Vlerah (Myspace) has been charged with incest, statutory rape, statutory sodomy and promoting child pornography. Her bond has been set at $2 million cash. Authorities say she has been cooperative in the investigation and it doesn’t appear as if she benefited financially for allowing the pervy fuck to rape her child. In 2008, a woman obtained a court order of protection against Van Vlerah, accusing her of seducing and having sex with the woman’s 16-year-old autistic son. She was also accused of boasting online about becoming pregnant from the union.
Kyle, a professor at East Bay University faces the same charges in both California and Missouri and his bail has also been set at $2 million. For the estimated 529 images of child porn and 33 child porn videos found on his laptop, he’s also looking at a federal charge of transporting child pornography.
The little girl has been taken into state custody and is said to be physically ‘ok.’ She doesn’t have a daddy in her life, as he reportedly signed away his parental rights. Excuse me, but I need to go and vomit now.
