Man Linked to Viral Child Porn Video Finally Turned Himself in

A Millbrook, Alabama man wanted in connection with a viral video depicting the sexual assault of a young girl was taken into custody Tuesday.

Germaine Moore, 44, turned himself into Millbrook police at 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, authorities say.

He has felony warrants in Detroit, Michigan on charges of sexual assault of a child, distribution of video depicting the assault and criminal sexual conduct first degree. No charges have been filed in Alabama.

The district attorney confirmed Tuesday afternoon the victim is a 6-year-old girl. Investigators say the girl has been located and is safe. There is no word on when and where the video was taken.

A woman, Tonya Moore, was taken into custody Monday night in connection with the investigation. She is charged with interfering with prosecution. It's unclear if Germaine Moore and Tonya Moore are engaged or married.

After waiting hours for Germaine Moore to return home Monday, officials asked for the public's assistance in locating him Monday night.

Investigators said they believed Moore was a flight risk and needed to be brought into custody.

Germaine Moore and Tonya Moore were booked in the Elmore County Detention Facility. 

Alabama law enforcement agencies began the investigation last week after a video depicting the sexual assault of a child started circulating on social media. Law enforcement agencies across the country issued warnings to anyone who received the video to report it through social media and delete it immediately.

The Montgomery Police Department arrested and charged a man Monday with one count each of possession and dissemination of child pornography in connection with the video.
