Pedophile caught in child pornography ring originating from New Zealand

Posted in Solving Crime January 19th, 2009 @ 9:59 am

A 52-year-old Colorado Springs, Colorado man was recently arrested . He was a substitute teacher at Spring Creek Youth Services Center. Kyle G. Speed was arrested on suspicion of trading child pornography and sexual exploitation of children – a class three felony.

What makes this arrest important is that Speed may have been part of a larger operation starting in New Zealand. “Operation Achilles” was reported in a March 2008 ABC news article. This operation started in Queensland, New Zealand by police task force Argos and is alleged that a core administrator of this highly secret website was a 29-year-old Queensland public servant.

The website catered to pedophiles who were sophisticated in the knowledge of computer encryption. As a result, they felt that they were untouchable and in a safe zone. These pedophiles made and traded images of young children involved in the most terrible sex acts. They thought that they were invincible. The network had more than 400,000 child abuse films and images on their computers.

However, the world’s police caught up to their computer techniques and was able to invade their network. So far, all of the major players in this group have been caught and the police were able to rescue 20 children from around the world from ongoing sexual abuse. In addition, they have caught at least 14 American alleged child abusers. Kyle Speed may be one of those child pornographers who is now off the network. Operation Achilles will continue until law enforcement is satisfied that all pedophiles are caught and sentenced as well as the children used in the videos can be found.
