The investigation began in May 2019 when the Indiana State Police was contacted after a cyber tip was provided to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.  During the course of the investigation, detectives determined that Karl Hoffrogge, age 20, Dillsboro, Indiana had requested and received nude pictures from a juvenile female through a social media site in January and February 2019.  When the offense occurred, Hoffrogge was an assistant wrestling coach at South Dearborn Middle School in Aurora, Indiana where the victim was a student.

At the conclusion of the investigation, the case was presented to the Dearborn County Prosecutor’s Office.  This resulted in a warrant being issued for Hoffrogge on one count of possession of child pornography, class 6 felony, and two counts of attempted possession of child pornography, class 6 felonies.
