Examples of viral posts in circulation on Social Media like WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.
On Thursday 11-07-19 the Corpus Christi Police Department received a video from several different sources showing a child being abused.
This video was posted on a local Facebook group and ultimately found its way to us. Since then we have actively attempted to identify the suspect, child, and location of the incident so that this incident can be addressed.
At this time all indications are that the incident did not occur in our jurisdiction and that it occurred in Nuevo Leon, Mexico. We have also received information that this incident may have happened over a year ago.
We are working to identify the specific location of occurrence in Mexico so that the Child Protective Services equivalent in Mexico can be notified, and an investigation can be performed.
We would like to thank all our community that have passed on invaluable information to assist us in this investigation.
