ESPN is reporting that the first audio from a private chat room where teens have engaged in consensual, adult incest has been obtained by the New York State Police.
In the audio, the teens in the chat room can be heard laughing about having sex with one another and discussing the possibility of getting pregnant.
They are also heard discussing having sex when they are in the shower.
The NY State Police are investigating whether the chats are being used as a way to hide and keep minors from reporting sexual abuse.
In a statement, a spokesperson for the NYPD said, “We are currently reviewing the audio files in the case and working to determine the details of what is in the files.
The New York City Police Department will not tolerate sexual abuse of minors.”
The audio has been turned over to prosecutors in the New Jersey investigation, which has been ongoing since at least July.
Investigators believe there may be more than one person in the room, who the teens have referred to as “the kingpin,” who is accused of having sex in front of them.
“It’s not like they just have one guy there,” said Detective Joseph Loparco of the NJ State Police’s Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Unit.
The NJ State Department of Health and Human Services is working with the New Yorker to determine whether the girls in the video are actually related.
