NORTH PORT – Disturbing new information is emerging in the case of Coralrose Fullwood.

The rape and murder of the 6-year-old child three years ago may have been videotaped, according to search warrant documents obtained by FOX 13.

North Port Police along with FDLE investigators raided a storage unit in North Port rented by Edward Chinnici and his wife Cynthia.

Documents show detectives discovered cameras, DVDs, and dozens of movies and hardcore pornography.

There is no word yet if Coralrose is on any of that media.

In a sworn affidavit, a police informant claims he was there the night he says Patrick Murphy raped and murdered Coral Rose at Murphy’s North Port home.

He also says Chinnici was there too. The documents allege that Chinnici offered three young girls and a boy ten dollars to have sex and then videotaped it.

At one point, the informant says he watched Murphy hit Coralrose and then rape her. Whether or not that’s on tape is what investigators are trying to determine.

Although the search warrant does not mention Coralrose’s father Dale Fullwood, witnesses claim Fullwood knew Murphy, and the two watched child pornography together.

Police later found child porn on Fullwood’s computer.

He pleaded guilty months later, and the revelation destroyed his marriage.

So far police are refusing to comment on the documents.
