Former Kentucky Cop Arrested for Raping 14-Year-Old, Engaging in Sickening Acts of Abuse

In an appalling case that has sent shockwaves through the community, a retired Kentucky police officer has been charged with rape and sodomy following allegations of sexually abusing a 14-year-old victim. The accused, David Roy Love, 69, from Radcliff, was arrested on January 4, after Kentucky State Police conducted a thorough investigation.

According to local reports, Love admitted to engaging in an inappropriate relationship with the victim during a non-custodial interview. Shockingly, the abuse is said to have begun when the victim was just 13 years old. Love confessed to multiple encounters, involving oral sex and other sexual acts.

Adding to the gravity of the case, Love revealed that he had even purchased a sex toy for use during their encounters. This sickening detail highlights the extent of the abuse and the disturbing mindset of the accused. 

The retired officer now faces serious charges of second-degree rape and second-degree sodomy, in addition to tampering with evidence. It has also come to light that Love had stored child pornography on his personal tablet and had distributed it through Facebook. Thankfully, the evidence was retrieved before he could destroy it.

Love's physical appearance in his mug shot has caused some concern, as his face appeared badly bruised and swollen, with his head wrapped in bandages. Sources close to the case have indicated that this was a result of radiation treatment for cancer, from which Love is reportedly suffering.

This shocking case has shed light on the dark and disturbing actions of someone entrusted to uphold the law and protect the community. It serves as a reminder of the importance of thorough investigations and holding individuals accountable for their heinous crimes. The charges brought against Love are a step towards justice for the victim, and a crucial message that such behavior will not be tolerated in any capacity.
