According to reports, 30-year-old Michael McCann of Haverhill, Mass. came into contact with an undercover investigator with the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office. During discussions, which started in January 2017, McCann said he would be “interested” in traveling to Arkansas to engage in sexual contact with an underage child.
Then in April, McCann claimed he recently sexually abused a 3-year-old that he described as a family member. He provided what he called “good pics” of the sexual contact and said he had more photos of the encounter. McCann then sent a phot of himself with the girl and was babysitting her for the weekend.
The investigator forwarded the case to the FBI and within 48 hours McCann was arrested at his residence in Haverhill.
Officers were able to track him down when they found a username belonging to him on a website for people interested in bondage, domination, and sadomasochism. That username had posted child pornography on the website.
