FBI asks people to stop sharing child pornography video on Facebook

Investigators around the country are asking people not to share a disturbing child pornography video that's been circulating on Social Media.

A video showing a man and a young girl engaged in a sex act is now the center of a multi-state sex crimes investigation.

The Kent County Sheriff's Office is warning citizens of a child pornography video that is showing up in Facebook messenger inboxes.

Sharing the image could be illegal and lead to criminal charges - no matter the person's intentions, Memphis Police posted to Facebook Friday.

People have contacted police and news outlets about the graphic content showing up on Facebook timelines and inboxes since Thursday. The message is appearing in several forms, one which urges readers to share the video or photo in order to help find the perpetrator and "give justice to the victim".

Police in Youngstown said the family service unit is investigating the case.

"So, there's a pretty good chance that whoever is in that video and involved in this is somebody that they may know and trust", Ziegler said. Report to FB and DELETE immediately!

Alabama law enforcement agencies are also conducting an ongoing criminal investigation.

Check privacy settings and account security.

Corporate headquarters discourages people from sharing the video at all. Please visit the FBI's Safe Online Surfing website for additional information.
