Girls' Facebook photos posted on porn sites
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Police in Nashville arrested a Madison man this week on charges he used Photoshop to replace the faces of women in pornographic photos with the faces of two local teenage girls.
Kim Eugene Norris, 54, reportedly then posted the images, along with the girls' names and school they attend, onto at least two pornographic Web sites.
Norris is alleged to have taken the images of the girls from their Facebook pages after he met them in the Madison area and attempted to befriend them.
Metro police said their investigation began in April after one of the teens learned from an uninvolved person that said she was depicted on a pornographic Web site.
Through further investigation, detectives learned the images had been photo shopped and linked the computer in which they were uploaded from to Norris.
The images of the two teenagers, along with other images and videos of child pornography, were found on Norris' computer.
Norris is charged with violating federal child pornography law, which makes it a crime to "unlawfully and knowingly produce with intent to distribute, and distribute, by any means, including a computer, in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce, child pornography that was an adapted and modified depiction of an identifiable minor."
In an interview with detectives, police said he admitted to morphing the photos and posting the images of the two teens.
The Metropolitan Police Department said they requested that the United States Attorney's Office review and adopt the case because there is no current Tennessee law prohibiting the "photo shopping" of minors' faces onto pornographic images.
