Police in Pennsylvania arrested 28-year-old Edward Joseph Hockenbury of Warminster after police received a notice from the NCMEC that he was allegedly exposing himself and masturbating on webcam to underage girls that he met on MyYearbook.
Before we go any further he’s 28? He looks like he’s old enough to be starting his mid-life crisis.
After further investigation police discovered that MyYearbook sent more than 200 notices to the NCEMC about the same guy. The IP addresses were all the same.
Hockenbury would allegedly purposely list his own age as under 18 so he could have contact with the underage girls.
In one of the message sessions, an “ed joseph” was sending sexual messages to a juvenile who responded that she was “15,” according to court records. The male responded, “I know I cant help it your so gorgeous,” according to court records.
I’m amazed at how many complaints that MyYearbook and the NCMEC received before sending any along to police. I know the NCEMC does great work but it shouldn’t take the 201st complaint before something is done about a predator.
