According to the arrest documents, On Sept. 7th, the Louisiana Bureau of Investigations Cyber Crime Unit reviewed two National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) complaints involving a woman allegedly molesting her four minor female children.

The images were from a platform called “Tumblr.” They included screenshots of conversations between the female suspect and other users describing sexual acts she had allegedly done to her children.

On Sept. 8th, officials reviewed pictures that showed the suspect’s daughters had an affiliation with a business on Perkins Road. Authorities were able to locate the suspect’s picture. After searching her Facebook account, authorities didn’t find any publicly posted pictures that were reported to NCMEC.

The investigating deputy noticed realized there was an affiliation. After a search warrant was executed for the Tumblr account, the results linked the account to Kojis.

Law enforcement determined Kojis set up the account to impersonate the woman, using photos of her family.

Authorities found hundreds of photographs in Kojis’ alleged Tumblr account. There were over 250 photos of the woman he allegedly impersonated and her family. There were also over 400 chat messages where Kojis allegedly spoke with other users about breeding their young children and having sex with children, according to the affidavit.

On Oct. 4th, officials executed a search warrant at Kojis’ home on Castle Kirk Dr. where they looked through several of his digital devices.

It’s where they allegedly found pictures of child pornography and sexual abuse of an animal in a hidden album on his cell phone.

Plus, officials also found additional pictures of children that had been altered and their clothing had been removed, according to arrest documents.
