A family man was arrested by a special unit in the Mühldorf district.
He is said to be the head of a child molester network.
Mühldorf - In the district of Mühldorf * the shock is great: Because when one of the world's largest child pornography platforms, which became known on Monday, is broken up, the investigators lead to the Upper Bavarian district.
As it has now become known, no special unit of the Federal Police stormed a single-family house in a hamlet in the southern district on April 13 at half past seven in the evening and pulled the father of the family, Alexander G., out of the cellar in handcuffs.
The native of Munich is said to be the head of the child molester network "BoysTown", which was broken up by the BKA and the Frankfurt Public Prosecutor's Office.
Over 400,000 users worldwide are said to have been supplied with abuse scenes of male children from its servers.
The mastermind behind the child molester platform is probably from Bavaria: He has children himself
"He has separated himself from the village, we only saw him drive past in the car," say neighbors. Explosive: The 48-year-old programmer has four boys himself, two of whom are still minors. The investigators are currently investigating whether they too became victims or whether G. was only active as an administrator. G.'s lawyer does not want to comment on the allegations at the moment.
The “Boystown” platform, which could only be reached via the Darknet, was four times larger than the “Elysium” website, which was switched off in 2019.
According to a report by
, Alexander G. from Kraiburg bore the server costs himself, moved conspiratorially with Bitcoin payments in the network and communicated with other administrators via the encrypted messenger service Threema.
Thanks to their surprising access, the investigators were able to secure the users' chat histories and hope that this will lead to clues to other perpetrators.
