NYPD Officer Carmine Simpson Arrested for Child Porn

NYPD Officer Carmine Simpson Arrested for Child Porn

New York Police Department (NYPD) officer Carmine Simpson was busted by the feds for child pornography according to a criminal complaint filed yesterday in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York. According to the complaint, while Twitter was busy cracking down on free speech by conservatives, Simpson was busy communicating with 46 children between the ages of 13 and 17. On Twitter alone Simpson solicited 33 sexually explicit videos and 18 sexually explicit images. Simpson often posed as a 17 year old boy using images of himself that were altered to make him look younger.

According to the complaint, which we are uploading in its entirety as a PDF with this article, the investigation into Simpson began on December 30, 2020 when law enforcement in Maryland received two tips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). Those tips claimed that an individual was using Twitter account number 1240754153749692416 to communicate with and persuade minors to send sexually explicit videos and images of themselves. Twitter then turned over information about several handles used by the person. Those handles were BINGIEBONGIE, thelifeofchris88, LifeOfChris69, DACRYPHlLIC, SOMNOPHLLIC and DACRYYBOYY. Those accounts are no longer active on Twitter, but oddly none of them contain a notice that the accounts have been suspended. If you visit the URLs they simply say that the account does not exist which means that Simpson must have deleted the accounts himself. Accounts like realDonaldTrump on the other hand display notices saying that Twitter took action against them for violating the Twitter rules. This shows that Twitter cares more about shutting up conservatives than protecting children on their platform.

Simpson didn’t even bother to use a VPN, proxy, or Tor to cover his tracks. IP addresses turned over by Twitter were traced directly to his home at 106 Cambridge Ave, Holbrook, New York. We normally do not post home addresses of cops, but we make an exception when they are charged with sex crimes, especially serious sex crimes involving children. Please do not use that information to do anything illegal. We believe that posting it is necessary because if he gets pre-trial release people in his neighborhood need to know what he is and where he is.

Other IP addresses were linked to the NYPD 75th Precinct in Brooklyn where Simpson is currently employed as a police officer, but he is now on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the case. He also used his personal cell phone number 631-944-2276 to complete Twitter’s phone verification process.

When federal agents searched Simpson’s home on January 28th they found an additional 48 videos and 162 images described in the complaint as “child erotica.” Materials seized from Simpson included video in which he persuaded underaged girls to masturbate and draw on their bodies with a permanent marker. Often the girls would write derogatory adult terms on themselves as well as Simson’s first name. One of his victims is described as a 13 year old transgender male. The complaint goes into graphic detail as to the exact words exchanged with the victims. We will not repeat them here, but you can read the PDF for those details.

When searching for a picture of Simpson online we were unable to find any news articles containing a picture of him. This case has received national coverage but not a single one of those stories contains Simpson’s picture. When doing a Google image search for “Carmine Simpson Holbrook” we found the above image linked to a recently deactivated Twitter account at https://twitter.com/carminesimpson. We were able to find a copy of that page in Google’s cache dated December 8, 2020. That did not give us much information because the Tweets were protected and the account owner did not list their location. We do believe that the three men in this image are the right age for any one of them to be the same Carmine A. Simpson, age 26, that we are writing about right now. We don’t know which one, but we think there is a chance that one of them might be him. We want to caution readers that the Twitter account could belong to someone else also named Carmine Simpson who deleted their account when someone with the same name was arrested. That happens sometimes, but we think that there is enough of a chance that he might be in the picture that we are more comfortable going with this image for now instead of using a stock photo like the mainstream media has been doing.

We also did a Google search for the Twitter handles mentioned by the FBI in the criminal complaint and found cached results for some of them. Twitter still has a cached page result for the BingieBongie Twitter handle, but unfortunately the profile image has been removed from the cache and results in a 404 error on Twitter. Like the CarmineSimpson profile the Tweets were protected. The account was created in March of 2020, but lacks any additional information beyond a notice that the Tweets are protected, the name BingBong, and stats saying that the user had 840 tweets, 122 followers, 2,456 likes, and was following 147 people. Google also had snippets, but no cached pages for the DACRYPHlLIC and DACRYYBOYY handles. Both of those snippets were basically the same; DACRYPHlLIC dispalyed the name Chris and a quote from his bio or one of his updates saying “Not new to NSFW twitter but I want more friends. -Chris -17 -New York -5’11 -Bi -Dom++ -Single …”; and DACRYYBOYY displayed the name Smol boy with the quote “Not new to NSFW twitter but I want more friends. -Chris -17 -New York -5’11 -Bi -Dom++ -Single …”

Carmine Simpson does not appear to be a popular name. We only found one listing for Carmine Simson on White Pages, Intelius, and the background check service we use all list just one person under the name Carmine Simpson in the United States and that person is the same Carmine Simpson named in the complaint. That is another reason why we are including the above image because the likelihood of the account belonging to another person by that name who is also a male in his 20s is not very high.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) inmate locator (https://www.bop.gov/inmateloc/) lists one Carmine Anthony Simpson as a 26 year old white male currently incarcerated at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, New York (MDC Brooklyn). He has been assigned the identification number 27589-509. The BOP does not post inmate mugshots online which is why the media does not have a picture of Simpson. Again, the age and ethnicity of the people in the photo we found match the age and ethnicity of the BOP inmate profile.

UPDATE: We received a tip on Twitter just now saying that Carmine Simpson is the man in the middle of the photo. They also posted a link to this picture https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Es8nrCzW8AQgj3y?format=jpg&name=large and pointed out that he is wearing the same purple wrist band. After comparing both images we believe that the man in the middle and the man in the new image are the same person.
