South Bend man charged with five counts of possession of child pornography

A South Bend man who was arrested on five counts of possession of child pornography decorated his room as though it were for a young girl instead of an adult male, according to the probable cause affidavit.

William Dill was charged on November 18 with five counts of possession of child pornography in St. Joseph County.

In June 2016, the St. Joseph County Cyber Crimes Unit downloaded files containing child pornography from a compute located within the county.

Investigators identified the computer as that of William Dill of Barbie Street in South Bend.

On July 27, 2016, investigators served a search warrant on Dill's home.

During a forensic search of Dill's computer, investigators say they located over 1,200 pictures and videos of child pornography, according to the probable cause affidavit.

Police also discovered a Skype interview where Dill expressed interest in molesting a child, according to the probable cause affidavit.

Investigators said they found My Little Pony posters, Frozen posters and My Little Pony bed sheets on the bed in Dill's bedroom. Police said it appeared more like a pre-pubescent girl's room rather than an adult male's room, according to the probable cause affidavit.

Dill allegedly admitted to downloading child pornography files for the past year. He also admitted to engaging in Fantasy chats with another adult male he met online.
