#Kidnapper Takes #Child He Met On #Disney Website On A ‘Honeymoon’ For Two Weeks
A #Colorado man has been charged with kidnapping after he acted on a year-long plan to abduct a 13-year-old girl he met on a Disney website.
53-year-old Timothy Wind met #Connecticut teen Jillian Burgos when she was barely 13 on a children’s website called Disney Fairies Pixie Hollow, according to prosecutors.
Children went on the site to discuss their favorite Disney fairies, like Tinkerbell, but it was shut down in #September last year.
The pair continued communication for nearly two years before Wind drove from his apartment in Longmont, Colorado to Hartford, Connecticut on August 25 to see Burgos.
According to #NBC Connecticut, Wind planned the trip back to Colorado with his supposed girlfriend in a very “honeymoon-style” way.
Along the way, they stopped in #NewYork, #Kansas, and #NewJersey—even checking out the spot where Wind’s parents fell in love.
Burgos wasn’t found at Wind’s Colorado apartment for two weeks when investigators finally tracked her down.
Officials are still unsure if the #child actually went with Wind willingly, but they do know she initially lied about her age when they first met on the Disney website.
The pair reportedly slept together on an air mattress in Wind’s apartment, and although the victim has denied they had sex, documents state, “it is highly suspected unlawful sexual contact occurred based on totality of this initial investigation.”
The young girl’s friends allegedly told police that she had mentioned having a boyfriend named “Tim” for over a year.
Wind, who was arrested by Longmont police with the help of the FBI, is being charged with second-degree kidnapping, sexual assault of a child, Internet sexual exploitation of a child, and enticement of a child.
