Police: Beulah Woman’s Tumblr Account Contained Over 700 Child Porn Images

December 17, 2019

A Beulah woman was charged after over 700 child porn images were found on a popular online social media and blogging service.

Katie Nicole Gibbons, 20, was charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography. Her bond was set at $250,000.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children provided cybertips to Pensacola Police about a Tumblr user that had allegedly posted what appeared to be child pornography. Police obtained a search warrant for the Tumbler account and discovered 732 images that appeared to be child pornography.

According to arrest report, Gibbons was the person behind that Tumblr account with images that showed both prepubescent girls and boys engaged in numerous sexual acts with other children or adults.

Pensacola Police investigators determined the IP address associated with the Tumblr account was from Gibbons’ home on Stiller Lake Road in Beulah, and the investigation then was then handed over to the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.  A search warrant was served at the home by the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office, Pensacola Police Department and the Department of Homeland Security.

Authorities seized 34 digital devices from the residence. No child pornography was found on any of the items seized, but some of the devices contained “deviant pornography” including beastiality, the arrest report states. Investigators noted that additional search warrants are forthcoming as the the activity occurred primarily in the cloud and was most likely not stored on the devices.

Gibbons’ statements after her arrest were redacted from the report.

The arrest report states of the 732 images, 51 are of kown children that have been rescued by law enforcement, 253 have been reported before but the children are likely still in the care and custody of their abusers, and 428 of the images are new and have never been seen before because they are yet unseen victims or the computer files have been altered from their original forms. There is no indication in the arrest report that any of the victims are local.

    You would be shocked to know what is in someone’s soul as compaired to what face they show the world.

    I’ve known this sweet girl for a many number of years and there is no possible way this is her doing. She’s not one to even hurt a fly let alone participate in child pornography of any magnitude of 700+ pictures or videos. My prayers are with her and her family in this trying time and I hope to God that the truth comes out before this puts her family through any more turmoil. This is just not the Katie Gibbons I know and love dearly.

    There is a special place in hell for these sickos. Our world has become Sodom & Gomorrah, 10 fold

    Really disheartening and evil all at same time.
    Someone had to show her these things or expose her to this at some point in her life.
    It makes you think if she was not also mistreated by someone at a early age, its a common thing with this type of evil.
    evil is real, its what we do to stop it that …………………………………………

    All it takes to commit this kind of stuff is a computer, a devient mind and time to do it. It’s all around us…. Every week you hear of this activity. It’s in your neighborhood currently as we look at this. Don’t kid yourself and think it isn’t….

    Dear Lord, the numbers in that last paragraph are Chilling.
    We see the rather rare Amber Alerts or notices on tv yet the impact of how many kids, babies really, are being kidnapped or used by parents or legal custodians must be just vast.
    My stomach is in knots of outrage and illness over this.
