An alleged pedophile who positioned himself as one of the “good ones” on Twitter has been charged with sexual assault and possession of child pornography.

Edmonton man Justin Georges Stephen Coulombe, better known under his Twitter handle @enderphile, is accused of offenses against two teenage boys. He was arrested in August.

Investigators also believe that Coulombe may have also victimized children in Langley, British Columbia, where he used to live.

Going by the name @enderphile and later @enderphile1 on social media, Coulombe often tweeted about being turned on by young children, stating that he would never harm them. He described himself as a “non-offending, anti-contact pedophile,” or “virtuous pedophile.”

“Believe it or not, there are pedophiles who never harm kids. Pedophile ≠ molester,” Coulombe tweeted in 2015.

ALERT’s Internet Child Exploitation Unit says that Coulombe often masqueraded as a Catholic priest, but has no affiliation with the Catholic Church in Canada or the United States.

Many believed his schtick on the social media platform to be some sort of elaborate joke about child molesters. His tweets were often shared and retweeted, to the disdain of many on Twitter, prompting his accounts to be reported and suspended multiple times.

Coulombe’s account spawned several impostors pretending to be him, who continued to post after his arrest, prompting some confusion that he was not the man behind the original account. The impostors have not been identified. 

Internet sleuths were able to discern his identity after he was doxed, posting details of his home address and photographs, which identify Coulombe as @enderphile and @enderphile1. They uncovered his identity by connecting his screen names across various forums on the dark web, where he advocated for the normalization and destigmatization of the heinous practice. He also wrote articles arguing for the decriminalization of child pornography and sex with children, according to the amateur investigators.

Police arrested Coulombe after the mother of one of the alleged victims came forward with sexually graphic messages that were exchanged between her child and Coulombe. The texts spanned over several months. Her son said that the relationship then became sexual, according to police detective Brian Cross, who spoke to Globalnews.ca.

“Her son later disclosed the relationship was more than just online contact,” Cross said. “This case is troubling. It leads me to believe a young man was groomed.”

Offenses against the second teenager were committed online. Both boys were under 16, and are receiving therapy.

Police who raided Coulombe’s home found and identified child pornography. He has been hit with seven charges, including luring to commit the making of child pornography, sexual interference, invitation to sexual touching, sexual assault, possession of child pornography, and extortion.

Detective Cross said that the extortion charge relates to photos being used as leverage to get more images.

Coulombe was released under conditions following his arrest.
