Man arrested for making and having child porn

Posted: Updated:

MURPHYSBORO -- Police officers arrested Paul Joseph Blaney, 67, earlier this week after a 14-month investigation.

Officers found evidence of production and possession of child pornography at a home in the 1300 block of North 7th Street.

The offenses span several years and it is the belief of the Murphysboro Police Department that there are victims beyond those which have been identified during this investigation. 

Blaney is now in the Jackson County Jail on $1,000,000 bond.

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the City of Murphysboro Police Department at (618) 684-2121. You may also call the Murphysboro/Jackson County Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at (618) 687-COPS (2677) or the Carbondale/SIU anonymous tip line at (618) 549-COPS (2677). Cash rewards for information which leads to an arrest are also made anonymously.
