Police interviewed Winterrowd and used new technology to examine his phone, which yielded critical information in the case.
EFFINGHAM, Ill. — A 22-year-old man is facing charges after police said he sent a nude photograph to a child thousands of miles away.
Justin C. Winterrowd of Effingham, Illinois, was charged with grooming of a child by the Effingham County State's Attorney and arrested Tuesday afternoon.
Effingham police said they got a call from investigators in Washington state in late August saying a child who lived in Washington got a nude photo from an Effingham man. During the investigation, they identified Winterrowd as the suspect.
