The incident came to light after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children alerted the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office on July 3, 2023, about suspicious activities on Lido Drive involving the uploading of child pornography.
A shocking case emerged from Brandon, Florida, as a Florida woman now faces more than a hundred charges related to child pornography and bestiality
Following the tip, the sheriff’s office’s Internet Predator Unit initiated an investigation and traced the suspect to an 18-year-old Florida woman named Emoree Romero. Detectives promptly contacted Florida woman Romero on the same day and obtained her consent to search her phone. To their horror, they discovered multiple files on her device, showing Florida woman Romero engaging in sexual acts with her pet dog.
The severity of the case prompted the Internet Predator Unit to obtain a search warrant, leading to the discovery of even more disturbing content on Florida woman Romero’s phone. Images and videos of bestiality and child pornography further incriminated the woman. As a result, an arrest warrant was issued on July 27, and Florida woman Romero turned herself in to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
The charges against Florida woman Romero are grave, including 100 counts of filming, distributing, or possessing sexually explicit material involving animals
Additionally, she faces 49 counts of engaging in sexual contact with an animal, two counts of child pornography possession, and a single count of unlawful use of a two-way communication device.
Sheriff Chad Chronister expressed the difficulty of such investigations, as his detectives are exposed to distressing and harrowing material during their work. Nevertheless, he praised the team for bringing this predator to justice. He extended his sympathy and support to the victims of this deeply troubling crime.
The legal proceedings against Florida woman Emoree Romero will proceed, as law enforcement agencies continue their commitment to protecting vulnerable individuals from exploitation and ensuring that justice is served.
