Kirkus is under investigation for the “possible sexual exploitation of a juvenile,” according to a Facebook post by the Comal County Sheriff’s Office. The alleged incident involved an underage girl Kirkus picked up from her residence, according to the post by the Sheriff’s Office. 

“Detectives have determined that Kirkus meets his potential victims online using the application Snapchat,” the post said.
