According to officials in Hurst, 17-year-old Ricardo Lugo was posing as a 12-year-old sixth-grade student at Hurst Hills Elementary School. The teen attended the school from August until his arrest last week.

Detectives said that Lugo was working with Wesson. The 28-year-old man posed as Lugo’s father and enrolled him into classes at the Hurst campus. Wesson reportedly told police that Lugo was being used to lure children, and he admitted to sexually abusing more than 100 kids.

Police in Hurst said that no parents have come forward to say that their children were possible victims, but a number of detectives are fielding calls from the public related to this case.

Investigators are also combing through dozens of items seized from Wesson’s home including computers, phones, hard drive and other data storage devices. Wesson told police that he has more than 42,000 images of child pornography.

Those who live near Wesson and Lugo in Fort Worth are stepping up efforts to get the word out about this case, telling neighbors about what happened and encouraging everyone to talk with their kids. “We’ve started spreading it around the neighborhood to make sure everyone knows,” said neighbor Daniel Aguilar.
