Jenifer McKim of the Boston Globe tells the story of how one photo — of a half-naked toddler - cracked open an international network of child pornographers. The photo featured a stuffed animal that investigators in Holland knew was popular there.

The toddler was wearing an unusual sweater, too — helping investigators even more. The mother of the toddler in Holland had no idea her son had been an abuse victim. The tracking led to many arrests, from a ringleader in Holland, to a father in Massachusetts, and many more.
