The investigation by the Indiana State Police ICAC began in June when cyber tips were received from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). Those cyber tips along with an extensive investigation by Trooper Kevin Getz culminated in Wednesday’s arrest when Schaeffer was transported to the Morgan County Jail on five felony counts of possession of child pornography.

Trooper Getz was assisted by Trooper Mike Clephane, Trooper Cecilia Wylie, Trooper Matt Jacobs, First Sergeant Chris Cecil, Sergeant Patrick Deckard, Sergeant Tom Egler, Sergeant Ginger Marshall, and her K-9 Partner Titus along with a representative from the Morgan County Prosecutors Office.  

Anyone having any information related to crimes against children is encouraged to contact their local law enforcement agency or visit the NCMEC website at http://www.missingkids.com/home and find the link to make a CYBERTIPLINE report.
