Computer-Edited Photos Lead To Child-Porn Locale

Toronto police have found a new application for computerized photo editing. The police released edited photos on 3 February from a series of child pornography pics in an attempt to locate where the photos may have been taken. Two days later, they have identified the Port Orleans hotel in Disney World as being the location. This seems to be the first time photo editing has been used in law enforcement this way and strikes an interesting line between protecting the victims and being able to get public tips. It looks like it may be used quite heavily in the future given this success. The girl from the photographs has been found and is safe. Her abusive adoptive father is already in jail for other child porn charges, and may face more time for the Disney World photos
