A 25-year-old substitute teacher from Indiana has been arrested by Federal Agents after he allegedly amassed over 90,000 pictures and videos of children engaged in sexual activity.
Yes, boys & girls that’s 90,000…
Michael Thomas Wilson, 26, of Valparasio, first came to the attention of investigators after they identified his username, “Wilson49332“, to an individual who had been previously been convicted in 2007 on child pornography charges.
According to the Post-Tribune, the unidentified convicted man maintained a web account with the now defunct Google operated website, “Hello“, which at the time allowed people to share various files with other online users.
One of the screen names on the site was the aforementioned “Wilson49332”, which investigators eventually traced back to the Valparaiso University graduate student.
After detectives paid a visit to his Indiana home they reportedly discovered thousands and thousands of files containing child pornography, some including images of a baby only a mere 4-months-old.
Besides being an active substitute teacher and overseeing numerous children in the states of Colorado, Indiana and Kentucky, Wilson also maintained an interest in autistic kids as is evident from his LinkedIn account.
On it, Wilson list the following as just some of his rather impressive credentials:
“Working with children and young adults (ages 6-26) diagnosed with Autism having a developmental disability in creating Individual Support Plans.
Tracking and creating community and daily living goals.
Creating daily educational activities and ensuring client safety.
Provide in home habilitation services in absence of parent/gaurdians.”
The single twentysomething also states that he worked as a band teacher while living in the state of Kentucky.
Also included in his massive resume, found as well on his personal site here, Wilson claims to be the program administrator and webmaster of blessinginabackpack.com, a site that is “designed to help meet the nutritional needs of children and families.”
“I am a social worker with a concentration of kids in schools, however I am also studying to be a child psychologist at the moment. I have been working in schools for the past three years. I have a BA in Psychology, a MEd in Special Education, and a MS in Social Work with School Concentration, now working on my EdSp in School Psychology.”
There he gave various advice from anyone needing information regarding children who suffer from spontaneous urination and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
