Pair baby-sat victims, Wise County sheriff says; images found

07:57 AM CST on Friday, March 24, 2006

By PAUL MEYER / The Dallas Morning News

A Wise County brother and sister are in jail after they used baby-sitting jobs for friends to produce child pornography, authorities said Thursday.

Phyllis G. Riedle, 48, and her half brother Kevin Riedle, 41, were living together in an incestuous relationship and possessed a large cache of child pornography on a computer, sheriff's officials say.

"It's a sick case," Wise County Sheriff David Walker said.

From photographs on the computer, investigators identified two local children as victims – an 18-month-old girl who had been sexually assaulted and a 7-year-old girl who was photographed nude. Ms. Riedle baby-sat both children.

"We think that the brother and sister were both there at the time," Sheriff Walker said.

Ms. Riedle turned herself in to police Wednesday on a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child and was booked into the Wise County Jail. Her bail has been set at $150,000.

Sheriff Walker said she confessed to investigators. Officers also found photos of a 14-year-old female relative on the computer.

Mr. Riedle was arrested March 1. He faces four charges of possession and promotion of child pornography. He remains in jail, with bail set at $300,000.

"Since then, the investigation has continued to grow humongous," Sheriff Walker said.

It began 18 months ago when Dallas police received a tip that Mr. Riedle had child pornography on his computer, Sheriff Walker said. Mr. Riedle worked as a long-distance truck driver and carried the laptop on trips, transmitting through wireless connections at truck stops.

About a month ago, Dallas police contacted their Wise County counterparts to let them know Mr. Riedle might be living in Runaway Bay, a small town on the southern shore of Lake Bridgeport.

The brother and sister were living with Ms. Riedle's two children. The children are in Child Protective Services' custody, Sheriff Walker said.

An analysis of the computer hard drive produced thousands of digital images of child pornography, including children engaged in sex acts with adults.

"This does have pictures of what looks to be 12- to 18-month-olds all the way up to teenagers in various stages of sexual assault," Sheriff Walker said.

"It is a bad, bad deal. Quite honestly, I hope I and my investigators never have to see anything like this again."

There were also several hundred video clips.

Investigators are continuing to look for other possible victims but say they believe most of the pictures and videos came from third parties.

"The majority of images and videos we believe came through the Internet," Sheriff Walker said.

The FBI, Dallas police and Tarrant and Wise counties' district attorney's offices have been helping in the investigation.

"If there's anybody familiar with Kevin and Phyllis Riedle ... we want to hear from them," Sheriff Walker said.


Death.

Those two need a 230 gr brain fart.

Well, the good thing for the really young ones is that they won't remember it, so it will probably not screw them up as adults. For the 7 and 14 year olds mentioned though, it's gonna be a long hard road. God help 'em.

I hope the prison citizens have loads of fun with these two nut-jobs.

Sadly their incestuous relationship is just another indicator that if you tear down one social taboo then why not another.

This world of whatever two consenting adults want to do is fine is taking the world to hell in a handbasket and we are all along for the ride.

When someone is willing to f*ck their sister and take pictures of sexually assaulting 7 year olds, it shouldn't suprise us that they will also molest an 18 month old.

Some people are just f*cking wastes.

My first thought on reading about these perverts was a sarcastic, "I bet their parents are proud."

That quickly turned to "I bet the parents are just as twisted as the incestuous siblings."

Sick. Sad. Disgusting.

They have punched their ticket to hell.

At my last department in East Texas we had a former Chief Dep who had a saying: You can tell a lot about people and cattle by looking at their hair and eyes. If you get a chance to see pics of the two involved, its true. When that was on the news I looked at my wife and asked her if she would be willing to turn our kids over to anybody who looked those two. No way.
Pedophiles/sex offenders exist on a plane that almost no normal people can comprehend. I really don't like dealing with them.

About the only way it could get any worse is if they also played the banjo.

How the FUCK does someone get THAT twisted and sick? Shit, I don't know of anyone who has that much LEGAL porn on their computer, much less child porn which I imagine is harder to find (assuming you're not one of the sick bastards making it). It should be obvious to EVERYONE that there is no hope of rehabilitating these two and that they can never be released from prison. My vote is for them to be taken out in the middle of nowhere, buried alive up to their necks in sand, covered in a little honey, and left to rot in the sun. Ants gotta eat too, you know.

I haven't seen the scumbags yet but I believe you. I'd imagine that the siblings didn't start having sex with each other because they were so "hot" that they couldn't resist. More likely, they are both so gross that they couldn't get any other "dates" outside of the family.

If we were really civilized, we would just shoot them and put them in the ground when we caught them doing that shit. I'd put the sick bastards into a perforated 55 gallon drum with a couple of rabid raccoons and toss them into a river, but that's just me...
