Police: Child porn found in illegal treehouse, at man’s home

March 20, 2018

NORTH BEND, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say they’ve connected a Seattle area man with child pornography found in a remote fairytale-like treehouse inside a Washington state forest.

Court records show 56-year-old Daniel Wood of Mill Creek has been charged with two counts of child pornography possession.

Wood couldn’t be reached by phone calls to a number listed for him.

A state natural resources department worker discovered the illegally built cabin in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest in November 2016.

The elaborate treehouse built 8 feet (2.4 meters) off the ground with a wraparound porch and glass windows contained framed photos of naked young girls dressed like fairies.

That set off an investigation that led officials to seize more child porn from Wood’s home.

Authorities said DNA found at Wood’s house also matched with treehouse items.
