“To say that ROCIC went above and beyond the call of duty would be an understatement. The ROCIC staff’s detailed, precise work was critical in helping us show jurors exactly what happened in the house when our officer was killed by drug dealers. The suspect was convicted of second degree murder and several drug related charges.”
—The Honorable Amy Weirich
District Attorney General
30th Judicial District Attorney’s Office, Tennessee

MOCIC Intelligence Research Assistance Supports Cases of Child Sexual Exploitation
The Barry County, Missouri, Sheriff’s Office contacted the MOCIC intelligence research staff for assistance in two separate sexual exploitation cases involving children. In the first case, the adult male suspect was communicating with a 15- year-old male victim online. Authorities obtained an Internet Protocol (IP) address for a female connected to the suspect. The MOCIC staff obtained information that assisted authorities in the identification, location, and indictment of the suspect. In a second investigation, authorities were investigating a case in which a young girl had been exchanging explicit pictures with an adult male in a nearby state. Authorities had only a name and a social media account. The MOCIC staff obtained information that assisted authorities in positively identifying the suspect, who was indicted for distributing and receiving child pornography.
