Full article published on Mercury

A retiree has been refused bail after police allegedly found a raft of child abuse material on his laptop and a number of fake identification documents.

Over the past 20 years, police allege Mr Seddon regularly travelled to Thailand and the Philippines, describing him as “well-connected” and a “frequent traveller to high risk ports for child exploitation”.

Police also alleged Mr Seddon recently contacted a computer company and asked them how to use the dark web.

Mr Seddon had also allegedly been using YouTube Kids and had searched for “young boy gay porn” before his arrest.

Police allege they also uncovered an “enormous amount of gay pornography” ranging from children to adults.

“Based on the pornography viewed, the accused has a preference for jail scene encounters…sexual torture,” court documents read.
