10-year-old’s diary entry helps cops catch alleged pedophile, kidnapper: Reports

A Georgia man is behind bars after a mother found her child’s diary that reportedly laid out disturbing details of molestation.

AJC reports that the child’s mother filed a police report against 46-year-old David Lee Kinnison, of Newnan, according to Coweta County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Casey Mullis. The victim is a 10-year-old, the arrest affidavit states.

Kinnison is accused of taking the victim to another room inside his home, where he molested the child. The victim reportedly wrote out the incident in great detail in the diary entry, prompting police to question and ultimately detain Kinnison. The victim went through a forensics interview.
