“Operation Orange Tree” Sees Child Porn Suspects Busted
In a news conference on Tuesday, June 9, 2008, AMW host John Walsh and Florida Gov. Charlie Crist announced a new tactic in the fight against child pornography.
Reading this alert about an “Unknown Tampa Child Rapist” at America’s Most Wanted (AMW) might make you wonder if he had any ties to the brutal rape and murder of 6-year-old Coralrose Fullwood last year. Her case is presently unsolved. North Port, Fl where she lived is approximately 90 miles south of Tampa.
This is the type of case that hits very close to home for some Tampa, Fla. police officers. A 10-year-old girl says a man raped her in her home at 5:30 in the morning Saturday, August 18, 2007. Her parents were sleeping nearby until she woke them up to tell them what happened to her; her parents quickly called 9-1-1, but the man was long gone.
The police apparently have DNA from both cases to be able to compare should they choose to do so.
