Through further analysis, it was learned the IP address associated with the Twitter account resolved to a residence in the Spring area in north Harris County.
Homeland Security Investigators, along with members of the Houston MetroInternet Crimes Against Children Task Force served an evidentiary search warrant at Goolsby’s home.
While serving the warrant, a non-custodial interview was conducted with the defendant who denied the allegations, however, he admitted he lived at the home alone.
At one point during the interview, the defendant told investigators they would find “stuff” they didn’t like during their search.
A forensic examination of Goolsby’s electronic devices revealed that he possessed over 220 images and videos of child sexual assault.
Three of the videos discovered during the forensic examination depicted the sexual assault of a child believed to be no older than 10 years of age. The details of what was found are in court records but are too graphic for this page.
Goolsby is currently free on a $30,000 bond and has a court date of October 19, 2018, in the 230th Felony Court.
