Mother jailed after exploited children tip made

August 10, 2018

HUNTINGTON — A Huntington mother was jailed Wednesday after she was accused of engaging in sexual acts with her baby and exchanging child porn via the internet.

Elizabeth Rain-Ann Massie, 20, was jailed at 4:45 p.m. Wednesday. West Virginia State Police charged her with possessing material depicting minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct. Her bond was set at $10,000 cash-only.

According to a criminal complaint filed in Cabell County Magistrate Court, a West Virginia state trooper received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children on Wednesday about a woman seeking pictures from Massie of her 6-month-old child.

The woman told Massie a man would be willing to pay for the pictures of her child because he is a “pedo.”

The woman told Massie the man would pay $1,500 if she would allow him to come to take pictures of him with the child, but Massie said that a man she had spoken to was not OK with that.

Instead, Massie proceeded to record three videos depicting inappropriate adult contact with the child April 17 and sent them to the woman.

In return, the woman sent Massie photos of a 4-year-old boy’s penis, and she said she would engage in sexual acts with him at a later date.

Police executed a search warrant at the Guyandotte home, located in the 500 block of Bridge Street, Wednesday and Massie was taken to the State Police’s Huntington detachment for questioning.

Massie said she only remembered part of the conversation she had because she had gone off medication. She allegedly told troopers she did recall the videos she sent and she had found them on her phone after she started taking her medication again.

Massie is housed at Western Regional Jail in Barboursville.
