How a Russian girl ended up in an adoptive house of horrors, TWICE
In February 2005, Toronto police made an unprecedented move to further the investigation of a child pornography case they had been working on for three years. Hoping to rescue a girl from the ongoing sexual abuse, they took the unusual step to release several of the two hundred images they had in their possession. The photos were altered in such a way that only the scenery was shown, hoping this would lead to new leads in their investigation.
The media was eager to pick up on the story and the photos made the front page of many news paper and televised news programs paid extensive attention to the case. Soon after the release of the photos, the location depicted, in a twist of irony, was identified as Disney World. The victim, not visible in any of the photos presented was immediately labeled "Disney World Girl".
