Pediatrician Suspect in Child Porn Case was Sole User of Computers, Feds Allege; Graphic Complaint Describes Images

Dr. Emilio Luna, the west Phoenix pediatrician accused of distributing child porn on a public file-sharing system, was the only one who had used his laptop computer, federal agents allege.

A complaint filed by agents in court gives more details as to why Luna was arrested, and what kinds of photos he was freely offering the world from his computer. See our post about Luna from earlier this afternoon, if you haven't read it already.

Luna, who has also worked in El Paso, lives at home with his elderly parents in the 10700 block of West Peoria Avenue in Sun City, states the complaint obtained by New Times. When agents went to the house this week, they found that Luna's father has dementia and his mother, a Spanish speaker, has no idea how to use a computer.

The investigation began in June when FBI agent Rajiv Patel signed onto GigaTribe and spot-checked other users on the system. He noticed that someone using the handle "Speeedi69" was sharing a massive amount of data, 10,000 files totaling 920 gigabytes, so Patel browsed some of the shared images and spotted the child porn. He selected 15 of the images and downloaded them to his computer.

Five of the images are described in the complaint. All five involved pre-adolescent boys engaged in sexual poses; in three cases, adult men are in the pictures, too.

The feds traced the Internet connection through Cox Communications back to Luna and later raided the Sun City house, seizing a desktop and laptop computers that belonged to Luna.

Authorities aren't sure if any of the kids in the pictures were patients of Luna's.
