The man pictured above is Ian Bagley.  He is currently being held in the St. Tammany Parish on 66 various charges that include sexually abusing animals and children.  This astounding and vile crime spree was finally brought to an end thanks to a collaborative effort led by Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry and the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation (LBI).

Badgley, a 33-year old Slidell resident, was arrested as part of an ongoing investigation that included 6 separate state and local agencies.  According to WGNO, the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office, Mandeville Police Department, Slidell Police Department, and St. Tammany Parish Department of Animal Services all worked in concert with the AG and LBI to finally put this allegedly very sick - and dangerous man.

According to the report, Badgley is being charged with:

  • 46 counts of sexual abuse of animals
  • 11 counts of possessing pornography involving juveniles under the age of 13
  • 3 counts of producing pornography involving juveniles
  • 2 counts of possessing pornography involving juveniles
  • 1 count of felony carnal knowledge with a juvenile
  • 1 count of indecent behavior with a juvenile
  • 1 count of computer aided solicitation of a minor, and
  • 1 count of oral sexual battery

As horrific as these accusations are, investigators believe he may have done more.  Anyone with information is encouraged to call the LBI toll-free at 1-800-256-4506.
