EL RENO, Okla. — An online sex sting involving an undercover lawman, who was posing as a 15-year-old girl, lands two men behind bars. Investigators posed as a teenage girl to catch the men.

Inside his home and behind his computer is where authorities say 52-year-old Carl Davis of Duncan sat and made sexual comments and exposed himself to what he thought was a 15-year-old girl. Little did he know, he wasn not talking to a teen. Behind the screen name “krazykrissy98” was Canadian County investigator Adam Flowers.

“Sometimes it’s tough to sit there and let them talk or demonstrate what they want to do,” he said. “I have kids. I couldn’t imagine my kids being on the internet and be the victim of something like this.”

Court records show Davis told “krazykrissy” that “he would like to see her naked” and asked if she was a virgin. Lawmen say it wasn’t long before Davis “uploaded a picture of a man’s penis.” He described his own length and width, and asked “krazykrissy” if she liked it, but Davis wasn’t the only one talking to the 15-year-old decoy, so was 32-year-old Travis Tosh from Tulsa.

“I would say 20, 25 minutes into the conversation when the web cam was turned on where he was exposing himself inappropriately thinking I was a 15 year old female,” Flowers said.

His arrest affidavit indicates he was “apparently masturbating” with a webcam on. Pictures and video from both suspects cases are now police evidence. During our interview with Flowers he logged into the same yahoo chatroom where “krazykrissy” met Davis and Tosh. This time he used the name “krzycutie98,” a fake 15 year old girl from Edmond. Within minutes several innapropriate requests and comments appeared.

“The problems are prevalent online. Your children as well as my grandchildren, any child can get on the computer and within minutes be approached by a predator,” Canadian County Sheriff Randall Edwards said.

“Hopefully we can catch them before it gets to that point where they ruin a life of a child,” Flowers said.

The Stephens County Sheriff’s Department, the Duncan Police Department and the U.S. Marshal Service assisted in investigation of Davis.
