The suspect would impersonate an 11-year-old girl online and trick children into doing pornography, authorities said.
California police arrested 24-year-old Demetrius Carl Davis back in December and have since reached out to victims across the country.
So far, 80 children have been identified, including four in Houston and three others in Texas. Police said at least 20 others have yet to be identified, not just in the United States but around the world.
A tip led authorities to Davis in late 2021, when officials said they found numerous files in cellphones and accounts he communicated with.
“To her siblings, her relatives and other children who know her and who are filming and then sending this video to our suspect,” said Sgt. Rod Grassmann of the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office.
Authorities said there were more victims and urged parents to check their children’s electronic devices. If you think your child has sent illegal material to someone named “Lizzy,” contact the police.
