The disgusting news from the Hurst child pornography case just keeps coming. An Instagram account matching one described in court documents as belonging to Ricardo Lugo is still live.

He was enrolled at Hurst Hills Elementary school as Matthew Wesson, after Randy Wesson, his alleged accomplice, picked him up from El Paso in February 2014 and brought him to North Texas. Lugo is 17, but Wesson told school officials Lugo was 12 and provided an Ohio birth certificate, now thought to be fake, as proof.

The images from Lugo's Instagram are chilling. Under a bio that says he is 11 about to be 12 and that he is single but just looking for friends, Lugo posted photos as early as January clearly intended to depict him as a kid. There are selfies in Cars pajamas, multiple photos with a fake mustache where Lugo jokes about going through puberty and a picture of Lugo wearing a fake police SWAT team uniform.

Wesson was scheduled for an appearance in federal court this morning, but the hearing was delayed until early next week. Lugo has been charged with possession of child pornography with intent to promote by the Tarrant County District Attorney's Office.
