VA Cop who Pushed for Photos of Teen’s Erect Penis Kills Himself

A Virginia police officer whose job was to investigate online sex crimes against children committed suicide Tuesday – moments before he was to be arrested for online sex crimes against children. 

Manassas police officer David Edward Abbott, Jr. was the same cop who made  headlines last year when he tried to take photos of a 17-year-old boy’s erect penis for what he claimed was investigative purposes.

A year before that, he won an award for “integrity in investigative work.”

Abbott, 39, was also part of the Northern Virginia-Washington D.C. Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, which was how he became the lead investigator in a case where 17-year-old Trey Sim sent a photo to his 15-year-old girlfriend.

In an apparent attempt to maintain the integrity of the investigation to determine if Sim truly did send the photo, he obtained a warrant which would have allowed him to photograph the teen’s erect penis to compare to the photo of the erect penis Sim had texted his girlfriend.

The warrant would have required Sim to report to a hospital and receive an injection to make his penis erect, which would have allowed Abbott to snap the photo.

The prosecutor, judge and police department were all on board with this intrusive investigative technique, but the teen’s attorney, Jessica Foster, criticized their actions, telling a Washington Post reporter, “Who does this? It’s just crazy.”

And that statement prompted Abbott to file a lawsuit against Foster, arguing that her comments were emotionally distressing and were ruining his reputation after being called a pedophile. He quietly dropped the lawsuit last year.

But it turns out, he was a pedophile after all.

The detective was about to be arrested for having inappropriate relations with two boys, ages 11 and 13, when he killed himself, according to the Washington Post.

Abbott was well-regarded as being a hockey coach in Prince William county. This is supposedly how he met the alleged victims.

Detectives in the case told Patch.com that Abbott’s inappropriate behavior with both teens started over two years ago. Abbott allegedly contacted them via texts, phone calls, email and also met them in person at some point.

From the records obtained, it seems that Abbott had inappropriate contact with the second victim since 2008.

“This is a tragic and sad day for the Abbott family, the juvenile victims and their families, the Manassas City Police Department and our community,” read a statement from the Manassas City Police Department.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
