He is 19-year-old William Elms, also known as Liam. Liam was dating the Myrfors’ 17-year-old-daughter.

With some help, the parents set up a sting.

“Why not make a Facebook and create a girl?” said Julie.

“When we did this, we had rules. We were not trying to entrap him. We were setting him up a situation where, if he was a bad guy, he could act on it,” said Jesper.

And he did. He began sending explicit messages and pictures.
