Update: After several attempts to take his own life John David Roy Atchison finally succeeded - link.
---original post appears below---
John David Roy Atchison (aka JD Roy Atchison, John David R. Atchison, and Roy Atchison), an Assistant US Attorney from Gulf Breeze, Florida, was charged with interstate travel for the purposes of engaging in illicit sexual contact and using the internet to seek illicit sex.
Both charges stem from a sex-sting operation in which an investigator posed as the mother of a five year-old girl who was offering her daughter to Atchison for a sexual liaison. Atchison, a father with two children himself, took the bait and was arrested when he flew into the Detroit airport last Sunday.
We know from the MySpace and Yahoo profiles that allegedly were created by Atchison that, in addition to his apparent penchant for sex with extremely young children, Atchison also had a fetish for teen and adult females who practice infantilism, which has been described as "Enjoyment from infant-related things. Pretending to be a baby, wearing diapers (see diaper lover, speaking like a child (ie "I sowwy"), sleeping in a crib. Wide range of things, but all infant-related."
In this article I am going to delve into this area a little further than the press has, and pull back the curtain a bit to provide an admittedly slightly salacious peek into Atchison's trail across the internet that was uncovered by my research for a series of articles on Atchison here on Wizbang Blue.
In addition, I will detail two specific instances where Atchison attempted to make contact over the internet with female "Adult Babies," and although there is nothing sexually explicit in what I'm about to describe and illustrate readers are forewarned that the following is suggested for mature audiences only, and your discretion is advised -- especially if you're reading this in a work environment (NSFW).
At the time its existence was first revealed a few days ago Atchison's MySpace profile listed seven online "friends" (currently there are only five). Among the ones remaining is 'Baby Katie.' Here's a small portion of her MySpace profile in which she provides some background on her diaper-wearing preference:
When I was in my teens babysitting I starred at a diaper long enough untill I put it on. I have loved wearing diapers ever since. My parents found my diapers a few times and had "the talk" with me. I told them I liked wearing them and playing baby when nobody was around. They wanted me to see a shrink and get help and I told them I was perfectly normal. I showed them stuff on the net that there were other people like me, that it was like bondage or leather or wips and chains and stuff.
She goes on to describe her purchase of a crib and how much she enjoys sleeping in it, and states that she wears diapers at home all the time -- "I have never used the potty in my apartment," she states proudly. Her profile includes two video clips of adult women in a nursery-like room, dressed and acting like children and wearing diapers.
Whether 'Baby Katie's' profile is accurate or just a hoax isn't important -- what is interesting is that this is what Atchison found appealing -- this apparently was one of the areas of intense sexual interest to him.
Tracking Atchison's trail across the internet lead me to his Yahoo profile, which I documented in a post last week here on WB-Blue. Among the clues I used in tracking Atchison was the IP (Internet Protocol) address, '18.104.22.168,' which was listed in the criminal complaint filed against Atchison last Tuesday.
As detailed in the complaint, investigators subpoenaed IP address records from Yahoo -- the internet messenger service used by Atchison in his online chats with undercover investigators involved in the sting that resulted in his arrest -- and it was this IP address that was then tracked to Atchison's home computer.
Tracking Atchison further, I uncovered two instances where Atchison attempted to contact 'Adult Babies' on an Australian internet site which calls itself "Daddy's Girls." The home page of the site offers the following "welcome" message:
My name is Bethan, I'm 28 years old and I live in Sydney, Australia. I am ADULT BABY, however I like to use the term LG (Little girl). This personal site talks about the AB fetish and what it means to me.
The web site features stories and illustrations by Bethan, plus a message board where individuals were allowed to post and reply to messages. It appears that Atchison, using the yahoo email address of fldaddy02 [at] yahoo.com, posted two replies to postings on the message board made by persons representing themselves as female "Adult Babies' interested in making contact with men.

I'm a 5'3, 110lb 23yr old girl that has graduated college, has a normal job with fairly normal friends and a constant supply of good-looking men to occupy my attention...
So I don't know why the idea of having a guy diaper me is so hot. It just seems odd to me. Maybe it's that I have bladder problems anyway- I have constant UTI's and when I was nine years old, my doctor told me that I have endometriosis...a condition that causes extended pressure on the bladder area. So I do have genuine accidents on occasion. I don't wet my pants on purpose. I've had boyfriends in the past that have been understanding of this, but washing sheets at least once a month and throwing panties away is beginning to take it's toll. I'm not really interested in sucking on pacifiers or being diapered 24/7. I still want to feel like a normal girl...but I would love to chat with guys that would be understanding of me. I long for a relationship with a man that would allow me to be diapered at night when I know I've had alot to drink and take care of me when I have accidents. Maybe one day...
Until then, I'd love to chat with some guys about this-
The reply from fldaddy04, posted from the same IP address identified in the criminal complaint as belonging to Atchison's home computer, doesn't reveal much about him -- just that he's interested in making further contact:

Very cool message! Would love to chat with you.

The second posting is dated a little over six months after Atchison's reply to Keegan. In it the author refers to herself as an "LG", infantilism vernacular for "Little Girl", and spends a good deal of time explaining why she enjoys wearing and soiling diapers -- at times taking an almost clinical view of herself and others like her.

I don't know about the other LGs on this board, but when I'm in LG mode I want to do all the things I did (as well as all the things I would have liked to have done) when I really *was* little. Yes, I like to be pampered and loved, and to 'get away with it' because I'm so cute. I like not having to worry about things and being looked after. Tidying-up and housework is something LGs just don't do, and that's fine by me too. But most of all I like to make pee-pee and poo-poo in my pants because it feels as nice to do that now as it did then.
And when I was little - even when I wasn't quite so little, right up to about ten or so - I loved wetting and messing my pants. Nappies, trainer pants, little-girl cotton underwear or school knickers - it was all the same to me. Pants were for pooping in.
It's odd, really; I've read a lot about potty-training and children who have 'problems' with wetting, bedwetting or 'soiling' (such a polite way of putting it!). Various causes are advanced - weak muscles, lack of co-ordination, constipation, emotional disturbance, poor concentration, distraction, mental disorders... but no-one ever seems to mention what I'm sure is the commonest reason kids go in their pants: it feels good and they like to do it!
Having 'accidents' in my underwear was something I did all through my childhood. They weren't really 'accidents', of course; I went potty in my pants because I didn't want to stop what I was doing and left it too late, or because I decided it was more important to carry on playing than waste time going off to the bathroom. One of the great things about going toilet in your pants is that you can be doing something else at the same time! Occasionally I pottied my pants because I was told to (stuck in traffic jams or nowhere near a toilet) but most often I went because I wanted to.
To me, having wet or messy pants is an intrinsic part of being 'little' and I find it odd that there are LGs out there who don't do this. I also find it odd that other LGs are trying to loose bladder or bowel control so that they can't help themselves. To me, that's regression to infant status, well beyond being a LG. My sort of LG is more-or-less potty trained but often decides not to be! But an infant always in nappies is not at all the same thing.
Yes, I do like to wear nappies (proper soft, fluffy towelling ones with pink locking pins) and plastic pants, at least at bedtime. In the house, I'll often wear terry-towel training knickers, with or without plastic pants over the top, but sometimes ordinary cotton panties. Sometimes I ask for the potty, and if Dadddy sits me on the toilet with my pants down I'll try and perform... but for the rest of the time, I just go when I need to. Wearing wet or poopy pants never worries me and I'm quite happy to wait until Daddy is ready to change me.
What do ther LGs think/do about this?
Lucy closed with a question posed to other "LG's" but Atchison, writing on November 2, 2006, posts this simple reply:

Hi Lucy...that's exactly what I like in a little girl!
No email address, no invitation to contact him, just a note approving of her behavior. Other replies to Lucy's posting are along the same lines -- approving of her behavior and reinforcing it as being "okay."
Other sections of the Daddy's Girl website reveal more about the site's founder "Bethan." On a page titled "Thumb Sucky Girl" Bethan describes the comfort she receives from sucking her thumb.
I have always sucked my thumb right from the word go and I still do it now. This feels so natural to me that I do it even when I am not thinking about it.
Sucking my thumb is a great comfort and relaxes me completely. I guess a bit like yoga. I often suck my thumb when I am day dreaming or in deep thought and I forget that I am doing it. Its only when someone in a car next to us in a line of traffic or a person sitting opposite to me in a train, gives me an intriguing look, that I remember what I am doing. It's fun though when a guy looks over at me as they often more intrigued. If this happens I continue to suck my thumb to test the reaction and in a way I guess it's a bit like fluttering your eyelids and looking cute in a flirtatious kind of way.
My favorite time to suck my thumb is when I am tired or whatching TV and this is when I am most relaxed. Often I am so relaxed I have an accident in my pants.
Additional pages are illustrated with photographs of baby furniture and infants' "accessories", such as bottles, pacifiers, bibs, and children's books. A full page is dedicated to "Nankie the Comfort Blankie" (her soft cotton blanket). Subsequent pages go into more detailed descriptions of her "acting out" life as a little girl, including descriptions of how her Daddy changes her diaper, and plays horsey by bouncing her on his knee.
Many of the role-playing descriptions include mention of her wetting or soiling her diapers, and there are a few cartoon-like illustrations depicting women dressed as "LG's" topless, although there was nothing sexually explicit in this section beyond these few instances of animation nudity.
The web site has a photo "gallery" in which adult women are depicted posing and role-playing as 'Little Girls.' The nudity is less graphic that what you'd find in a Playboy magazine, without genitalia exposed and in poses which would not be described as explicit. Some of the women posing are drinking from baby bottles, or playing with an infant's toys. Almost all appear in diapers, with a few women shown posing in a plaid parochial school uniform.
One selection in the photo gallery is titled "Daddies and their Princesses" and here adult males are shown diapering and dressing their "LGs", and there is more nudity -- including female gentilia -- but no depictions of any sex acts.
While I didn't look in every corner of the site, the searches I performed using Atchison's yahoo username and his IP address only revealed the two instances shown above where he posted on this site, but the site is quite large, and honestly... I wasn't very comfortable poking around there for long.
I'll post more if and when I uncover anything else. As always, links and trackbacks to Wizbang Blue are appreciated. - Lee Ward.
