He reportedly used Filipino dating sites to meet women and offer money for sexually explicit photos of their children.

Frazier also sent child porn to some women as examples of what of he wanted or asked the women to share the images with their children to encourage them to engage in similar behavior, according to the U.S. District Court.

“The defendant also had discussions about committing violent acts against children,” read a press release. “For example, he discussed killing infants during sexual assaults.”

From April through July 2019, he sent money to women in Philippines via MoneyGram at a Sidney store. During discussions with one woman, she reportedly told Frazier she needed the money for food.
