Sheriff's Deputies in Volusia County, Florida say that they arrested 28-year-old Tyler Bush-Conn, of South Daytona, and his wife 27-year-old Talisha Bush-Conn, of Deltona on Tuesday, August 8th.
Volusia County Sheriff's Office spokesman Andrew Gant said that the office's Child Exploitation Unit was contacted about 8 PM Monday night by multiple Alabama investigators who were looking into allegations of sex crimes committed against a minor child.
Deputy Gant said the seven year old victim told her grandmother in Northern Alabama that she had been forced to have sex with an adult male on multiple occasions and that the man and his wife took pictures of her repeatedly.
The child's grandmother then immediately contacted the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency's State Bureau of Investigation, which in turn reached out to the Volusia County Sheriff’s investigators to take down these disgusting pedophiles.
Sheriff's Detectives determined the reported abuse took place on several occasions at the Bush-Conn couple's former home on Wade Street in DeLand, Florida. They also said they determined other instances of the rape happened at the victim's home in Deltona, Florida.
The seven-year-old victim told Sheriff’s detectives that the monstrous Tyler Bush-Conn had sex with her, “forcefully sticking his genitals inside of hers”, on multiple occasions and took pictures of her before and after while she was naked.
Through the course of the investigation into the innocent child's story, Sheriff’s Detectives also determined that Talisha Bush-Conn has participated in at least one sexual encounter with the victim as well, saying that the girl said all three of them were naked together on that occasion when it happened.
Detectives worked through the night and, around 2:30 AM they were able to get a judge to sign off on the search warrant at Tyler Bush-Conn's current home in South Daytona Beach, Florida.
Detectives say they then also contacted Talisha Bush-Conn at her Deltona home. Tyler Bush-Conn was arrested at 3:52 AM and Talisha Bush-Conn was arrested at 6:55 AM by a regional joint task force.
While the exact time frame of the abuse or specific dates when the molestation and child pornography images were taken remains unconfirmed at this time, the incidents described by the victim are believed to have started in early 2016.
Alabama State Police Cpl. Jesse Thornton said that the agency's Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, along with SBI Major Crimes, worked cooperatively with the North Florida ICAC Task Force to help make the arrests of the two evil pedophiles and get their own children to safety.
Deputies say that Tyler Bush-Conn is charged with sexual battery on a victim under the age of 12 years old and lewd or lascivious molestation.
Law enforcement also said that Talisha Bush-Conn is charged with being a principal to sexual battery on a victim under the age of 12 years old, lewd or lascivious exhibition, child abuse, and child neglect.
The joint task force between the two states underscored that the investigation is still continuing at this time and additional charges are pending.
Both suspects currently remain in Volusia County Jail in Florida and are being held without bond until a later arraignment at which time it's unlikely the judge will grant bail at any price due to the nature of the crimes against a child.
Sheriff's officials later said that the Bush-Conn couple are separated and have been for quite some time.
To make matters worse, Tyler Bush-Conn was hired by the Sheriff's Office on March 17th of 2014 and was fired on October 28th of 2016.
Talisha Bush-Conn is currently employed by the County of Volusia in EVAC Emergency Medical Services.
Yes, both of these disgusting pedophile monsters actually had a history in either emergency medical services or law enforcement.
Detectives contacted the Department of Children and Families to take custody of the Bush-Conns' two children, who now remain in protective care.
It is unknown as to how the seven-year-old child knows the couple or if they were family friends, but the fact that the grandmother of the seven-year-old was able to identify them gives the impression that they know each other.
