Agents in San Francisco accessed an application on Wood’s cell phone called Whisper, which is a form of anonymous social media, allowing users to post and share photo and video messages anonymously

Agents then gave the information retrieved to the Homeland Security Dallas office, the criminal complaint said.

Homeland Security officials executed a search warrant at a residence on Shields Street in Fort Worth on Jan. 30, where Wood admitted he owned the Whisper account under investigation, according to the complaint.

He said the account was deactivated but later admitted to receiving child pornography using Whisper.
