On June 13, 2023, the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force received a Cybertip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). Files downloaded by a resident of Fort Wayne were provided by NCMEC as part of the investigation. Fort Wayne Police Detective John Chambers, 1685F, a member of the ICAC Task Force, was assigned as the Case Agent. He determined during his investigation that the files were downloaded to at least one digital device inside a residence in the 4200 block of Euclid Avenue.
