Cops use photo to pry open sex abuse: Some scumbag sexually abused a girl, then sent pictures around the Net. The police have had the girl Photoshopped out of the picture, and are circulating the resulting images in the hopes of catching a lead.
For the first time, Toronto police have released digitally altered photos taken from original child-abuse images in hopes of identifying a sexual-abuse victim. The eerie photos, which show a young blond victim being abused, were “repainted” to remove the victim in hopes of identifying the location where she was abused, said Det.-Sgt. Paul Gillespie, head of the child-exploitation unit.
The pictures are here. They’re eerie. It looks like they extrapolated the background behind where the girl was located in the picture, leaving a subtly distorted silhouette of her.
