We initially met Dylan when he chatted up one of our child profiles on the meet up app Skout, in July 2018. This was in Orlando, Florida where Hardy lives.
We couldn't connect with him in person at that time, but he continued chatting with whom he believed to be a 13-year old girl.
He offered to have the child stay at his home next time she was going to be in Orlando. He believed she lived in Boca Raton, Florida.
The conversation continued to text and to iMessage where he eventually had a Facetime video chat with whom he believed to be this child. He believed this child was coming alone to stay with him for the weekend riding several hours on a Greyhound bus. He stated several times that he was fearful of being setup by the police but eventually agreed he would take the virginity of the child when she arrived.
He said: "Well if you're not a cop trying to take me to jail for fucking a minor then I guess we can do this," when she asked about him taking her virginity. Watch the Facetime confrontation below.
