According to a statement on the likely cause, Google filed a CyberTip on December 2, 2019 reporting that one of its users had uploaded child pornography to its account. On December 7th, Google submitted a second CyberTip uploaded by the same user with child pornography.

The user account was later identified as a 24-year-old Kadence Pinder.

Officials have issued a search warrant on the two suspected Google email accounts related to Pinder.

Upon further investigation, detectives said they found out that Kadence Pinder was a suspect in a possible child sexual abuse case that was reported in Sandy.

During an interview with detectives, Pinder reportedly confirmed that she had used the email addresses associated with child pornography. Documents indicate that Pinder also confirmed that she used the cell phone number 385-401-7111 associated with the email addresses.

When asked if she had ever seen child pornography, Pinder told Detectives that she may have encountered child pornography while browsing Tumblr, but declined to download it intentionally.

Documents state that when asked about certain files of child pornography found in Google Accounts, Pinder said they sounded familiar, but when she downloaded them, only because she thought they were of legal age.

Pinder also told the detectives that her friend, 29-year-old Marcus Strebel, had access to her Google account and may have accidentally downloaded something.

Strebel was also interviewed by detectives and reportedly admitted that he and Pinder had come
beyond child pornography showing children as young as three or four years old while
Searching Tumblr for pornography over the past year, according to a likely cause.

Strebel reportedly told detectives that he had clicked links and seen child pornography but had not downloaded anything questionable.

Both Strebel and Pinder were asked if they would consent to a search of their phones, and both initially agreed and went back to their house to retrieve their phones. However, documents state that after more than 30 minutes, Strebel returned and refused to provide their phones.

Search warrants were issued for both phones.

Forensic analyzes revealed child pornography on both cell phones. According to a likely cause, approximately 125 images of child pornography were found on Pinder’s cell phone.

Documents also state that Pinder has already been the subject of a DCFS investigation into a possible touchable child sexual offense.

Pinder was charged with 15 cases of sexual exploitation of a minor for downloading and owning 125 child porn images and videos depicting the sexually abused boys.

Strebel was charged with ten sexual exploitation of a minor for downloading and owning 125 child porn images and videos depicting the sexually abused boys.
