Clark/Washington Counties- Back on January 31st of 2010, Trooper Rob Caudill from the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg, started an investigation on a report of sexual misconduct with a minor. The alleged incident took place on or about November 29th in the year 2009, in Washington County. During the investigation, it was learned that David M. Walsh, met a 14 year old juvenile on the internet and gained her confidence. He was able to arrange a meeting with the juvenile and acting under the alias name of David M. Walls, went to an address on North Franklin School Road in Washington County to meet her. Once at the address, he allegedly had sex with the juvenile female whom he knew to be 14 years of age. David M. Walsh was 46 years of age at the time of the encounter.

Because of the alias and fake addresses, Trooper Caudill was never able to identify David M. Walsh as being the predator. As the investigation continued, Trooper Caudill collected numerous mailed items and communications as David M. Walsh continued to contact the juvenile. In October of 2013, Trooper Caudill got the break he needed and was able to identify the alias, David M. Walls as David M. Walsh, from Massachusetts.

Earlier this month, Trooper Caudill received information that David M. Walsh would be in the state of Indiana on today’s date, to meet with the former juvenile, whom is now 18 years old, and her family. Trooper Caudill found out the date, time and location of the meeting and with the assistance of Detective Rachel Eickholtz of the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg, was able to locate David M. Walsh in the Borden, IN area earlier today.

After Trooper Caudill and Detective Eickholtz spoke to David M. Walsh, 50 years old, from Deven, Massachusetts, they placed him under arrest on the charges of Sexual Misconduct with a Minor, B Felony; Child Solicitation, B Felony and Inappropriate Communication with a Minor, D Felony.

He was incarcerated at the Washington County Jail awaiting his first court appearance.

Trooper Caudill believes David M. Walsh, was using the alias David M. Walls, in his effort to go undetected by police and believe there could be additional victims. Anyone who knows or has come in contact with the arrested in person, or by the internet, is encouraged to contact the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg at 812-246-5424 and speak with Trooper Caudill or Detective Eickholtz.
