AOL Tip Leads to the Arrest of John Matthew Casey for Child Porn

A Maryville man was arrested for sexual exploitation of a minor, according to the Blount County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities received a tip from America Online that John Matthew Casey, 57, of Peppermint Hills Drive may have child pornography. Investigators with the HEAT (Hi-Tech Evidence and Technology) Unit searched Casey's home Monday and seized two computers. Several images of child porn were found on the computers.

Investigators took Casey into custody Wednesday at the Blount County Justice Center. He was released from the adult detention center the same day on a $25,000 bond. A hearing is scheduled in Blount County General Sessions Court for June 19.
