Pennsylvania woman charged with raping 5-year-old boy and posting video on social media
According to law enforcment, 24-year-old Corby Kinzey was arrested Tuesday night at her home in Greensburg.
Earlier this month, a 24-year-old woman from Greensburg sexually assaulted a five-year-old boy and posted a video of the sex act to acquaintances on social media. She was denied bail during her arraignment which took place on Wednesday on said charges.
According to online court dockets, Corby Jo Kinzey was arraigned before District Judge Chris Flanigan on charges of rape, rape of a child, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, corruption of minors, possession of child pornography, criminal use of a communication facility, sexual assault, endangering the welfare of minors, and filming a sex act with a child.
On Tuesday evening, law enforcement received a report from the mother of a former boyfriend of Kinzey that her son's current girlfriend received a footage on social media of Kinzey engaging in sexual intercourse with a minor, according to an affidavit filed by city Dept John Swank. Court documents stated that the woman personally provided a copy of the footage to the authorities as she was highly concerned about the well-being of the child.
Police believe the unabashed act was performed and recorded sometime between August 1 and August 14, according to Swank's report in related court documents.
At about 10 pm on Tuesday, Swank said he found Kinzey inside her residence on the 600 block of West Pittsburgh Street when a search warrant obtained from Flanigan was served to her. At the time, police informed her that she was being placed under arrest on certain charges, Swank said.
Kinzey reportedly told officers on the way to city hall that she knew the reason why she was being taken into custody, according to Swank's report in court documents. She apparently told officers, “It’s about the video,” according to a quote by the detective.
In a stunning fabrication, court documents stated that during an interview with Swank, Kinzey claimed that an unknown man in his 20s, with a thin build and brown hair, wearing a mask and gloves, held a gun to her head and forced her to perform the act.
She said that the man, whom she called Patrick, threatened "to kill her" if she mentioned anything to authorities as he recorded the act on her cell phone.
“Kinzey said that she had deleted the video. I then told Kinzey that her story was not plausible and she began crying,” Swank wrote in the affidavit of probable cause.
Swank wrote in court documents that the woman eventually admitted the sexual assault on the child. He said that the investigation into the incident was taken over by the Westmoreland County Children’s Bureau and the child in question was placed in the custody of a relative until the investigation ended.
Kinzey's preliminary hearing has been set for August 23.
