LEBANON, Mo. -- Investigators say they found more than 100 images of child pornography on the personal computer of a registered sex offender living here. Police say Rene Harvey, 72, served as a maintenance worker at a mobile home park, and detectives said that gave him increased access to young children. None of the photos, however, appear to be children who live near Harvey.
"During the interview, he did tell investigators they could look at his computer. While looking at his computer, it did show images of child pornography," said Lebanon Police Detective Tim Early.
Lebanon investigators said a call from a concerned parent led them to Harvey's home. A known sex offender, Harvey had already served time for another crime.
"Even though he's in custody, we still are investigating further information," Early said.
Detectives said they followed Harvey's activities for more than a year, first interviewing him in 2011. Police said Harvey delivered personal gifts to an 8-year-old child at the trailer park where he worked, speaking to the child in a sexual manner.
