Barry’s investigation began on Jan. 10, 2020, when the boy’s guardian contacted the sheriff’s office to report Facebook messages between the 17-year-old and Turner, discussing their inappropriate relationship from December 2019, Turner’s arrest report shows.

Barry questioned the boy, who claimed he and Turner had sex twice. He and his guardian told Barry they wanted to press charges against Turner.

Barry later questioned Turner about the allegations, but her statements were redacted from her arrest report.

Turner was jailed under a $10,000 bond.
