Deakin's arrest on April 20 reveals one of the darkest corners of the internet, where pedophiles in the U.
S., Canada, Europe and Australia pay facilitators on the other side of the world to sexually abuse children, even babies, directing their moves through online livestreaming services.
"I don't even know what you're frigging doing here! ___ Deakin grew up in Peoria, Illinois, he said, "around the corn fields." His family was splintered, his sister hated him and he didn't finish high school, he said.
He was licensed as a roofing contractor in his 30s, seasonal work which left winters free. Illinois court records show Deakin was arrested on marijuana and drunken driving charges several times before visiting the Philippines in 1998.
"I'm just a costumer," he said at first, as if the leather wrist restraints and ropes in the second bedroom were just for dress-up.
"I'm schizophrenic, you know," he later told AP, looping his finger at his temple.
Records in Deakin's town house included debit cards for money transfer services, including Smart Money and Payoneer. The vans passed Fields Avenue, a notorious street lined with bars, strip clubs and massage parlors; shops advertise Viagra and lingerie-clad women beckon customers.
MABALACAT, Philippines -- The suspected pedophile could see people banging on his front door through his security cameras. In his computer were videos and images of young boys and girls engaged in sex acts.
Penciled on the wall, someone had scrawled "My Mom and Dad love me" and a broken heart.
Agents said he had a webpage open to wipe his phone clean.
They tied him up with the first thing they could grab, an i Phone charging cord, before he could hit the button. "I've got files of frigging everything." AP and investigators asked him repeatedly why he had images of children engaged in sexual acts on his computer and bondage and fetish tools in his apartment.
