A Fort Worth woman is in custody after authorities say she took sexually explicit pictures of a toddler.
Hannah Nicole Edwards, 24, faces one federal count of sexual exploitation of children.
According to court documents, an undercover officer was using the Kik app when a member of a message group began sending private messages that detailed sexual abuse of two children.
That person also sent an explicit photograph of a 1-year-old boy, authorities said.
Officials said they traced the user’s IP address to a home on Clairborne Drive in Fort Worth where Edwards had recently moved. Authorities executed a search warrant at the home Sunday and seized Edwards’ cellphone.
Edwards admitted using Kik to distribute child pornography and discuss sexually abusing children, authorities said. She also said she had taken the photograph that had been sent to the undercover officer and identified another explicit photo of the same child on her phone, according to court documents.
Edwards does not appear to have any previous criminal history. A hearing to determine whether she should remain in custody is scheduled for Friday morning.
