A Tennessee man has been indicted for child rape after he detailed the crimes online while trying to expose the US presidential election.
Brian Gann, 30, was arraigned in Roane County court on Monday on six counts of child rape, three counts of harassment, one count of aggravated stalking and three counts of retaliation for past action.
Gan wrote several posts on Facebook while attempting to draw the attention of authorities so he could reveal how the 2016 election was allegedly hacked.
Police became aware of him on October 11.

In one of the posts, which was a screen shot of a message to the FBI, Gann claimed he had ‘killed a 5-year-old girl and I’m trying to tell you where the body is’.
In another message to the U.S. Department of Justice, Gan says ‘I raped a 5 year old girl and can’t get the cops to come get me,, I feel awful can you help me turn myself in?’.
According to his arrest warrant, Gann told police ‘he made up all of the information about the five year old girl to get the attention of law enforcement for the purpose of exposing the false presidential election’.
Authorities looked into the murder claim and determined that it wasn’t credible but when they investigated the child rape claim, Roane County Sheriff Jack Stockson said ‘there was some truth to what he’d been saying’.
‘He started listing the victims’ names…We started looking these people up, interviewing them and spending time. They were willing to help us prosecute.’ he said.
