Female Kik kreeper shared child porn with federal agents on Wickr

29-year-old Rachel Walker of Memphis, Tennessee has been accused of allegedly sharing child porn on mobile messaging apps Kik and Wickr.  According to federal agents, Walker was in a Kik chat room that was dedicated to ‘violent sex acts’. She then directed an undercover FBI agent to Wickr where she is said to have shared images of children being sexually abused.

According to the article I linked to, she may even be accused of abuse herself as the article states that she’s accused of doing something to a one-year-old and a two-year-old. Federal investigators also say that her ‘targets’ are usually newborns to three-year-olds.

If you’ve been reading my site for any reasonable length of time you’ll know that Kik is a mobile messaging app that’s constantly full of sex offenderspedophiles, and child porn collectors.  Wickr is a different story. It was designed for messages to be encrypted. Wickr is often used in journalism where anonymous sources can contact journalists without fear of having the messages intercepted. Wickr can also be useful for people who are living under oppressive regimes. Unfortunately, any tool with good intentions will almost always be used by those with evil intentions.

Another thing about this story to me at least is that it seems that female child predators are becoming more and more prevalent. Not just the ones who prey on teenage males but ones who are now preying on small children as well. It may have always been this way but at least anecdotally it seems there has been an uptick in female perpetrated crimes against children.
