Original release (August 11):

At 7:25 p.m. last night, Baltimore County Police responded to a home in the 300 block of Church Lane 21208. The caller into 911 stated that a body had been found outside of the location. When police arrived on the scene, they discovered the body of an adult female. It appeared that she had been deceased for some time.

The body of the female was taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for identification and examination. Investigators do not expect to have an official identification before Tuesday morning.

On May 16, a detective with the Baltimore County Police Department Crimes Against Children Unit was conducting a check of the Internet for persons sharing child pornography. During this investigation, the detective identified a source that was sharing pornographic images of children.
 
Further investigation indicated that this source was located in a home in the 6600 block of Edenvale Road 21209. Detectives served a search and seizure warrant on that home and recovered numerous computer storage media items. Some of these items were found to contain images of child pornography.
 
The investigation has indicated that 44-year-old Jonathan J Lewin of the home in the 6600 block of Edenvale Road 21209 was responsible for the images on the computer storage media and that he knowingly and willfully possessed and distributed child pornography. He was taken into custody by detectives at the home.
 
Jonathan J Lewin was found to be employed at the Ner-Tamid synagogue in Greenspring Valley doing odd jobs.  The investigation so far has not shown that any of the children at the synagogue were victims of child pornography.
 
Detectives did not examine all of the computer media items recovered during the search warrant. All of the computer media items recovered will undergo a forensic examination by the Baltimore County Police Digital and Multimedia Evidence Unit.
 
At this time, there is no evidence that Jonathan J Lewin had any physical contact with the people in the pictures.
 
Jonathan J Lewin has been charged with possession of child pornography and distribution of child pornography. He was released on $75,000 bail.
 
This incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Crimes Against Children Unit.
 
Anyone with information on this incident or Jonathan J Lewin is asked to call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020.
