A FORMER child protection officer claimed last night a Special Branch detective held a gun to his head to stop him investigating a VIP paedophile ring.
A couple from eastern Tennessee was arrested on Saturday and charged with crimes relating to having rented out their daughters, aged 5 to 16, to pornographers.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Ronnie Lee McCall and his wife, Connie Sue, forced their daughters to perform sex acts on film in and around Johnson City, Tennessee. The case came to the office’s attention after it learned that one of the children had been driven to South Carolina in order to make a pornographic film.
“When you have parents allegedly making money off their kids through pornography and exploitation, even after 20 years, it’s one of the worst cases I’ve ever seen,” said First Judicial District Attorney General Tony Clark.
