Rossville man facing sex charges over pictures of naked boys on his iPhone

Police said a Rossville man stored pictures of naked boys on his cellphone.

According to an arrest report, 21-year-old Kyle Logan Shankles was asleep on the morning of Oct. 13 in his boyfriend's bed when Brian Thurman Davis decided to thumb through Shankles' iPhone.

There, Davis found several nude pictures of underage boys.

On Thursday, Fort Oglethorpe police arrested Shankles on two counts of sexual exploitation of children.

Shankles remained in the Catoosa County Jail on Friday in lieu of a $10,000 bond.

Davis told officers that, on Oct. 13, he immediately felt sick upon discovering the pictures. When Shankles woke up, according to the report, Davis hid the cellphone and drove him back to his apartment in Rossville.

Davis told Shankles he wasn't sure what happened to the phone, that he must have lost it.

In fact, the phone was actually Davis.' He works at T-Mobile, and he gets a discount on phones, and he let Shankles use it.

Before Oct. 13, Davis told police, he had no idea that Shankles had naked pictures of boys on the phone.
