A Pennsylvania drag queen performer has been arrested and charged with multiple counts of possessing child pornography after he shared at least 135 videos and pictures of minors engaged in obscene acts.
Brice Patric Ryschon Williams has been charged with 25 counts of felony class 2 child pornography and 18 counts of criminal use of a communications facility after police executed a search warrant at the suspect’s home.
The investigation into Williams, who also performs under the drag queen name Anastasia Diamond, began in May 2020 when the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children submitted a tip to the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General’s Child Predator Section.
Early that month, indecent images of children engaged in sexual acts began to be uploaded to a Dropbox file associated with an email address linked to Anastasia Diamond, or Ana D.
After a a subpoena was issued to ISP Comcast for IP information, the suspect’s home was revealed to be in Oxford Court in Chambersburg.
Over the following months, the suspect continually uploaded more obscene images to the Dropbox account and investigators, led by Special Agent Travis Nye, built up a plethora of evidence confirmed the culprit to be Brice Williams.
