Entry Description

Vigo County— Indiana State Police detectives from the Putnamville Post have concluded a nearly three week investigation into allegations that a 14-year-old female was sexually assaulted by acquaintances at a local Terre Haute hotel. The assault took place on or around June 30, 2013 and has now yielded two arrests.

Arrested: Peter Joseph Tanoos II, age 18, Terre Haute, IN.
Charges: Child Exploitation, C felony
Sexual Battery, D felony

Arrested: Tucker Lee Ray, age 18, Terre Haute, IN.
Charges: Sexual Deviate Conduct, B felony
Child Exploitation, C felony
Sexual Battery, D felony

Wanted: Christopher Ivan Lucio Hayden, age 19, Terre Haute, IN.
Charges: Child Exploitation, C felony
Possession of Child Pornography, D felony

An investigation by ISP Detective First Sergeant Jeff Hearon and Trooper Mike Finney revealed that on July 2, 2013, the 14-year-old victim reported the incident to family members who contacted law enforcement, then transported her to a local Terre Haute hospital for treatment. Officers were able to determine the young victim became intoxicated and somewhat incapacitated at a private party near downtown Terre Haute. Friends and acquaintances then assisted her in leaving and took the victim with them to a hotel on the south side of Terre Haute. As she lay unconscious in the room, she was reportedly sexually assaulted by Tanoos and Ray. Pornographic images of the assault were allegedly recorded by Haden then surfaced multiple times around the community. Tanoos and Ray submitted themselves this afternoon at the Vigo County Jail. Anyone who knows the whereabouts of Hayden is urged to contact the Putnamville Post at 765.653.4114 or their local police.

Assisting were ISP Digital Media Investigator Chris Carter and ISP Detective Sam Stearley.

Please direct any questions to ISP Sergeant Joe Watts.

Prosecutorial questions should be directed to Special Prosecutor Lee Reberger of Clay County at 812-448-9028.
