Porn Squad Rescues US Girl from Life of TortureThe Australian
She was a girl most police around the world thought had been lost to the violent hand of her abuser. As a Queensland-led investigation smashed the oldest and most sophisticated internet pedophile ring ever known, the tortured face of the child haunted law enforcement agencies in 20 countries, who had been unable to find out who she was, where she lived and how to rescue her. For two years, police had watched her grow up on film. Thousands of pictures and movies had been shot of her being abused, sometimes at knifepoint, with the series becoming a "collector's item" among the insidious network of pedophiles.
On Tuesday night, FBI agents raided the US home of the abuser - James "Bart" Huskey, who gave her the pseudonym of "Tara" on the internet - and took her to safety. According to an FBI affidavit, obtained by The Australian, Tara had been raped by Huskey, 38, the previous day. Not surprisingly, it was captured on film and destined to be shared with thousands on the internet. Huskey, a married tennis coach (living in the northwest mountains of the state Georgia) with two children, is now behind bars in a high-security jail in Atlanta after being charged with abusing Tara and filming and photographing the offences over a four-year period.
