Tyler Thompson Wiki
A 22-year-old man is accused of luring a 13-year-old girl he met on Snapchat into a hotel room. The alleged predator, Tyler Thompson, was arrested by police on February 18 in Volusia County, Florida, after he was caught on camera in a shirtless room with an underage girl. The footage of the police corpse shows the moment when an officer opened the hotel room door in Edgewater, Florida to find Thompson with the girl last Thursday. The unnamed 13-year-old can later be seen running towards the officer and hugging him.
Since then, Thompson has been accused of using a computer to lure a child, then circumventing custody of the child and traveling to date. Police added that additional charges could be followed. The girl was reported to have disappeared by her grandmother around 18:15 on Thursday after not coming home after school. Initial investigations said a friend of the missing girl was planning to go to a motel with someone the victim met online. His friend told the police that the man’s name started with T, possibly Tyler, and was from Orlando. He said he may have bought the victim at the Dollar General store in Oak Hill near Edgewater. Lawmaker Royce James went to the store to look at the security videos and found surveillance footage of the victim in the store. An employee told the office that the girl was waiting for someone to take her. Deputy James then began visiting motels in the local area and showed front desk officers a photo of the missing girl.
At the third motel he checked in, the officer noticed that he was checking in with the address of Orlando under the name Tyler Thompson. The MPs went to his room and knocked on the door several times before Thompson finally answered. Deputy James can then be heard saying while hugging the girl; ‘whats up sweetie?’. He then confronts Thompson and tells him to go and wait in another room. Thompson was released from Volusia County Branch Prison on Friday night, on bail of $ 15,000.
