The court heard police raided Hayes’ home during their investigation and found a comprehensive amount of online chat documents show Hayes had been contacting children as young as 12 from various countries around the world.

Sick John Hayes, 66, scoured children's online chatrooms to find victims across the globe, including children in Africa and Asia.

Frank showed up with the kid, but he was quickly arrested! Who knows how early he started to groom this boy for homosexual molestation!
