Feds Hunt for Pair in Child Porn Photos

LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — Federal authorities are on the hunt for a man and woman they say appear in a series of widely-distributed child pornography photos.

The photos are believed to have been taken about 11 years ago in the San Fernando Valley.

They depict the couple allegedly molesting a teenage girl, roughly age 13.

The woman, whose face is shown in the photos, has several distinctive tattoos, including a black tattoo on her right hip resembling a butterfly.

She also has a tattoo of a curled up cat on her right shoulder blade, a tattoo with words across the top of her left wrist and a tattoo on the upper portion of her left breast.

She and the man, who wears a hood over his face in the photos, have escaped authorities for the past decade.

Now U.S. Attorney Andre Birotte Jr. is asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspects, referred to as John and Jane Doe.

The series of photos is widely referred to as the ‘Jen’ series. Jen is the pseudonym for the teenage girl, who is now a grown woman and has never been identified.

Authorities report that the photo series has been used in more than 275 child pornography investigations.

Anyone with information about the photos or the suspects wanted by authorities is asked to call the child pornography hotline at 866-347-2423.
