BARRY COUNTY, Mich. -- A 69-year-old Nashville, Michigan man was charged Wednesday in a horrific child pornography case involving several instances of rape and hundreds of thousands of images.

David Heinsen was allegedly in possession of more than 650,000 images and 3,000 videos of child pornography, officials say.  He admitted that he'd sexually abused girls in the past, according to a release.

In 1989, Heinsen allegedly raped an 8-year-old neighbor with Down syndrome and took pictures of the abuse.  The case remained unsolved until now because the girl has a limited vocabulary and was unable to describe what had happened to her, according to police.

Heinsen was arraigned Wednesday on four counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct involving a person under 13 years of age and possession of child sexually abusive material.  He was already facing a separate charge of possessing child sexually abusive material and using a computer to commit a crime.

Investigators say many of the images in Heinsen's possession were images of children of all ages, including toddlers, being sexually abused and tortured.  Nashville Police Chief Chris Koster said it's the worst case he's seen in his 30 years of law enforcement.

Heinsen has been under investigation since July.  His family members allegedly turned over old film they discovered to law enforcement.

When Heinsen was arrested, police say he had a gun and was going to commit suicide.  Heinsen also allegedly told Chief Koster he prefers girls from 10-12 years old.

He's currently being held on a $1 million bond.

Authorities are looking other victims in this case.  Anyone with information is asked to call the prosecutor’s office at 269-945-1297.

      Police needed a down syndrome girl to tell them what happened ? They don’t care how many kids the guy rapes, no money in it like a priest sex abuse case, No foundations to set up like in the Hanna Graham case. No lawyers slushing money into politicians in this case….so the police let him rape more kids…………..
      If they shoot a black male wife beater, all hell flys………….6.5 million dollars

      I was criminally charged by the rapists attorney for asking other people to take him out. Sued for our lawsuit money and the rapist and his attorney made money on it. I was charged with attempted murder for trying to kill him, and sued. All this occurred after the US FED made money on the case. The US FED let him rape more than 25 women before me. There is a string of dead girls in VA, died brutal deaths from Jesse Matthews. VSP let him rape and murder girls for 15 years. Police know where the lawsuit money goes, and even dead girls are case money at the courthouse. Someone needs to go after the Judges and cops that are adjudicating this money into the pockets of their constituency……….then they put the rapist in prison for free…….take the money out of the case and there is no incentive for police to let them rape the women and kids

      The “bounty hunters” are the police. They let Sandusky rape kids at Penn State and that case ran 60 million dollars. The courts will let Cosby drug and rape women until he runs out of money. Joe Biden is spending 6 billion dollars of your money to make this happen, VAWA. When the government runs out of money, they let them rape and murder the women and kids………..The Hanna Graham foundation is running bundles of money right now, probably why the police let him kill her rather than make a simple arrest for stalking a rape victim with lawsuit money. Lawsuit money reverts to the court…..you would be surprised how many public officials are making money at this……..no money in this down’s syndrome girl, that is why police let him rape her again

  • WOW

    NO, I WANT TO SEE HIM GO TO PRISON. HE DESERVES TO LIVE THE REST OF HIS LIFE AS SOMEONES BITCH. ON HIS KNEE’S WITH ALL HIS TEETH KNOCKED OUT, AND A PERMINATE CASE OF SORE HEMROIDS

      send a cop with him for letting him rape so many kids. So far people are only concerned when a black male wife beater gets shot resisting arrest……..6.5 MILLION DOLLARS for that. Police should not hurt black criminals….BS
