There’s what’s sick and there’s what’s sick and then there’s 32-year-old Missouri man, Anthony Brinkman. Anthony Brinkman was arrested for posting ad on Craigslist in the hopes of finding a stranger to beat and rape his 11-year-old daughter while he watched.
According to an officer investigating the case, Brinkman’s ad soliciting someone to beat and rape his 11-year-old while he watched was picked up by an officer monitoring the internet looking for sexual predators. The undercover officer replied to Brinkman’s Craigslist ad, and the two began to exchange emails. In one of those exchanges Brinkman sent the undercover officer pictures of his daughter as well as links to pics of the 11-year-old the suspect posted online. Brinkman and the undercover officer, which Brinkman presumed was a woman, agreed to meet at a certain time and location—at a Cracker Barrel in St. Louis, roughly 80 miles from Brinkman’s home.
Brinkman was arrested on the spot by the St. Louis County Police as soon as he pulled into the local Cracker Barrel. (No word if Chris Hanson was on location). The suspect admitted to placing the ad and also admitted that he may have child pornography at his home.
“Sir, why did you bring your 11-year-old daughter with you a Cracker Barrel 80 miles away from your address, who were you expecting to meet? Officer asked Brinkman.
“I don’t know, I thought I was meeting a women that was interested in using sex toys on my daughter.” Brinkman responded.
The 32-year-old Missouri man was charged with attempted statutory sodomy, however additional charges against Brinkman are not out the question. The County Prosecutors are seeking an additional charge of sex trafficking of a minor.
