A metro man is facing multiple charges of child pornography. Investigators said he traded videos of victims as young as 9-months-old, and they found out about him while tracking another suspect in a different state.

The Department of Homeland Security was tracking a possible child predator in Texas when they found Brandon Edgman.

Some of these details are very disturbing.

Agents said Edgman of Oklahoma City traded numerous child pornography videos via Skype with someone in Texas from January to February of 2013.

The affidavit said, "The chats are sexually explicit and indicate a sexual attraction to young boys."

Agents said Edgman received a 10 minute sex video "depicting two males, one appears to be in his late teens, the other appears to be approximately six to eight years of age."

Agents said Edgman also sent a video of a naked boy about "10 to 12 years of age" in which his "wrists and ankles are bound" and a "naked adult male strikes the minor male multiple times." Court records said the boy "can be heard crying throughout in the video."

When agents interviewed Edgman, they said he admitted to trading child porn via Skype and Yahoo Messenger.

He told agents there were about "20 to 40 video files of child pornography" on his computer.

Agents said they actually found 98 files of child porn on Edgman's computer, showing victims of all ages.
