Kurt Eichenwald, an investigative reporter for The New York Times, was on the Internet researching a story on fraud. The last thing he expected was information regarding a child pornography website. Its star was a young boy named Justin. Kurt says it was "a moment of horror. ... I knew this was a kid who was in enormous danger," he says.
Kurt read more of the online discussions and discovered that these men were talking about where Justin was, where he had been and what he had done...they were completely involved in Justin's life, Kurt says. He decided that someone needed to help Justin.
Kurt managed to track Justin down via the Internet. After several online conversations, Kurt gained his trust and Justin agreed to meet him at a Los Angeles airport.
