Nude child photo found; man arrested




Police are searching the computer of a Greenwood photographer who they said took pictures of a naked young boy and are investigating whether he took inappropriate pictures of other children.

John Spurr, 64, was arrested on three charges of child exploitation after a woman reported finding child pornography on his computer. Police have seized his computer and plan to search it.

The computer was kept at his home, 625 E. Pushville Road, where he also operated a photography business, Evergreen Photographic Illustration and Design, Greenwood Assistant Police Chief Matt Fillenwarth said. Spurr is a professional photographer, and his company’s website says he has been in business for more than 25 years, photographing everything from food to weddings for clients.
