HARDING STUDENT SUSPECTED IN UNDERGROUND CHILD PORNOGRAPHY

Associated Press - Searcy, Ark. - Thanks to an anonymous tip to Harding Security concerning what has come to be the black eye of Harding University, police now believe that they will be able to put an end to the underground child pornography ring they have persued for the last few years. Sophomore William Justin Maddox of Elba, Alabama has become the primary suspect in what law enforcement officials call a cancer on the face of this prestigious university.

"I can't believe that Justin would be involved with something like this, he always seemed like such a nice guy," commented a Harding student who asked to remain anonymous.

Officials first learned of Maddox' involvement following an anonymous tip that Maddox stored in excess of 7,000 digital photographs of underage females in compromising positions on his computer. The bulk of the pictures found were of brutally tortured and raped young women, some as young as six years old. The Grand Jury of White County will meet on Thursday, August 24 in order to arrange for the indictment of Maddox. Also under suspicion are Justin Chisolm and Jeremy Garman, both Sophomores at Harding University.
