"Shocked, still sick:" Family of victims speaks out after child porn and drugs found at Waukesha man's house

Patrick Dunn was arrested on Tuesday for luring young girls into taking nude photographs. He is now in the Waukesha County Jail. While he's not charged yet, police say Dunn is a public safety risk after two victims came forward to police.

"Shocked, still sick," Jackie Tyler doesn't want to show her face because she now knows that the seemingly nice man next door was taking advantage of her daughters.

"He had gotten one of our girls high. We didn't know what to do, we were scared of Patrick because we know he had many weapons," Tyler said.

Before she could report him to the police, armored officers showed up at Dunn's door.

When police searched his home, they found over 2000 child pornography photographs on his computer, female undergarments, drugs, and other suspicious items.

Police also said Dunn had guns in the home and would give marijuana or pills to the girls he would photograph. Dunn would allegedly threaten force if the victim's told anyone.

"This was clearly a grooming with the essence of trying to win their hearts over trying to lure them into sexual exploitation," said Captain Dan Bauman with the Waukesha Police Department.

"He did a lot with the kids and now I realize he was grooming these girls for when they were just a little bit older," Tyler said. Tyler also says Dunn did not take any nude photographs of her daughters and is thankful someone came forward before they became victims.

"If we continued to trust him, I'm afraid of what would have happened," Tyler said.

Police say the photographs date back many years and hope any current or previous victims come forward and share their story so this doesn't happen again.

Dunn will make his first court appearance Friday afternoon.
