Citizens asked not to share or forward disturbing video that is making its way across the U.S.
A repulsive video of an adult engaged in a sex act with a child is making its way across the country on social media. Well-intended citizens, from Franklin & beyond, are sharing the video via social media in an attempt to help identify the suspect.
Law enforcement has identified both the child victim and adult perpetrator. The investigation is active & ongoing, and has no ties to Franklin, Tennessee. The FPD asks citizens to stop sharing or forwarding the video, as doing so unnecessarily perpetuates its dissemination. Franklin residents with questions can call (615) 794-2513 to speak with an officer.
