FBI Catches Alleged Child Predator Red-Handed

FBI Catches Alleged Child Predator Red-Handed

(RepublicanDaily.org) – The reality is there are some people in the world who derive satisfaction from doing unspeakable things to children. Tragically, many of these people get away with these abominable deeds. In some cases, the authorities manage to apprehend these dangerous individuals before they have a chance to inflict damage, which is what happened in one recent story involving an alleged offender from San Juan, Texas.

On Monday, March 28, FBI agents arrested Jorge Eduardo Naranjo after he arrived at a hotel in Edinburg expecting to meet a 9-year-old girl to engage in sexual activity with her. The arrest was the culmination of an investigation that began in November 2021 after a Philadelphia-based agent received child sexual abuse images via the social media app KiK.

The agency used both open-source information and subpoenas to track down Naranjo by linking the KiK account to his residence in San Juan. An undercover agent based in McAllen, Texas, reached out to the account in March of this year, and Naranjo sent child abuse images to the agent believing that the account belonged to another pedophile.

During their correspondence, Naranjo expressed an interest in having sex with children as young as six. He ultimately arranged to meet the undercover agent in Edinburg so he could abuse a 9-year-old girl, who he believed was the daughter of the other account holder.
