Police: Man tattooed girl's vagina with his name for her 15th birthday

CORVALLIS, Ore. - A man tattooed his name on the vaginal area of a 15-year-old girl while carrying on an illegal sexual relationship with the girl, a detective said in a sworn affidavit.

Matthew Abram Rader, 30, faces charges of third degree rape and sodomy; second degree online corruption of a minor; and a count of using a child in display of sexually explicit conduct.

The victim told police Rader gave her three tattoos - a butterfly with a skull on her neck, plus his name and a clover near her vagina - for her 15th birthday. Police think that means Rader and the girl started having sex when she was 14, according to the probable cause affidavit filed in Benton County Circuit Court.

However, the victim also told police she never told Rader her true age.

The investigation started in December 2012. Police interviewed the victim and reviewed dozens of pages of sexually explicit messages between her and Rader.

At one point, a detective assumed control of the victim's Facebook account with her permission and began communicating with Rader.

The detective, posing as the victim, asked Rader about nude photos the victim remembered Rader taking of her with a cell phone.

"Hey I was wondering if you still have those pics you took of me with your old cell phone???" the detective wrote. "Do you look at them often???"

The next day, Rader replied: "I don't have em or I would ... I need more."

"What kind of pics do you want???" the detective, posing as the girl, wrote back.

"I want full body pics, faces pics. I wanna see your nipples and MY (vagina) baby," Rader replied, according to the affidavit. "After all ... my name IS on it."

Police took Rader into custody January 2, 2013. He has entered pleas of not guilty to all the charges against him.
