Year-long investigation nets arrest of man accused of sending lewd photos to minors

HENRY COUNTY, Ind. - "In my 15 years as an Indiana State Trooper, this is by far the most disturbing case that I've ever investigated."

That's a quote from state police detective Scott Jarvis, who led the investigation on Mark Suesz, 48. Suesz has been preliminarily charged for sending lewd emails and photos to girls in Henry County.

Indiana State Police (ISP) said after a year-long investigation, police arrested Suesz on two counts of dissemination of matter harmful to a minor, Class D felonies.

ISP said the investigation began in 2013 when a complaint was lodged about a Hancock County man (Suesz) who had sent nude photos of himself via email (with lewd messages) to girls.

After the investigation, ISP said a warrant was issued. Investigators then found out that Suesz, who was supposedly from New Palestine, had moved out of state to North Dakota.

Detectives found out Monday, however, that Suesz was visiting family in New Palestine. Hancock County Sheriff's officials found him at his relative's home and took him into custody. He was booked in the Henry County Jail.

In Indiana, a Class D felony carries a maximum sentence of three years' imprisonment and up to a $10,000 fine.
