U.S. Marshals in Oklahoma City are urging the public to assist in the search for a man wanted in connection with a truly despicable crime.
As per reports, the Marshals, along with the Enid Police Department, are hunting a man accused of sexually assaulting a 6-month-old baby and then uploading the footage to social media.
Brice Gage Watkins is wanted on a charge of distribution of child pornography. The Enid Police Department announced back in August that they had apprehended the suspect, only for it to transpire that they had the wrong man.
The Oklahoma City Police Department posted to Facebook yesterday to ask for the public’s assistance in finding Watkins.
“US Marshals and Enid Police Department are searching for Brice Gage Watkins for sexually assaulting a 6 month old baby, recording the assault, and then distributing it on social media,” the post read. “If you have any information regarding the immediate whereabouts of Brice call 911. He could be in OKC and has ties to Norman and Enid.

I don’t know about you, but crimes like the one cited here make me feel physically sick. How anyone could do that to a baby is beyond me.
