42 Year Old Man Accused Of Raping At Least 15 Children

A Texas man was arrested Friday after he was accused of raping at least 15 children.
KHOU reported that Tad Costin, 42, is accused of sexually assaulting female children between the ages of 4 and 7 years old, deputies said.

During a search of Costin's Pearland home, investigators found six hard drives and 80 CDs and DVDs, all containing child pornography. Police believe all of the graphic images found so far were taken inside the suspect's former residence near Clear Lake.

Costin was living with his girlfriend and her 5-year-old son at the time of his arrest. Police say his girlfriend's parents found a computer memory card in their home which contained images of Costin assaulting children.

The photos show multiple children dressed in Disney nightgowns, asleep or possibly drugged while Costin engages them in sexual acts.

"They're disturbing," Kathryn Kahle with the Harris County District Attorney's Office told KTRK. "The images are clearly of the defendant engaging in sexual conduct with these young girls, various girls. We still believe we have around 15 unidentified victims at this time."

Investigators with Liberty County and Harris County’s Crimes Against Children Task Force said the case began when the parents of Costin's girlfriend turned over the images to police on Oct. 20.
