Father of Roman Lopez investigated for child porn

A Placerville man arrested in connection with his son’s death in 2020 is now under investigation for child pornography, according to a complaint. The previous coverage is in the video above. Roman Lopez, 11, was found dead in a storage bin in the basement of his family home in January 2020, but his father, Jordan Piper, will not be arrested until February 2021 for child abuse, poisoning and torture. He and Lopez’s stepmother, Lindsay Piper, were later charged with murder in October 2021. As federal agents investigated Roman Lopez’s death, more than 400 nude photos of a minor girl were found on Jordan’s phone, according to documents. He also appears to have sent inappropriate text messages to the girl. Agents also found a GoPro camera, and the card appeared to show him removing it from a wall outlet in the bathroom of a rental home in Groveland. Many of the videos found on the card were of a girl taking a bath. Jordan faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted of the charges. Lindsay Piper did not claim her son’s death last month. At the time of Roman’s death, the child was living in a house with the Pipers and seven other children ranging in age from 1 to 17 years old. The family had recently moved to Placerville and had been home for just over two months before Roman’s death. Authorities said that although the autopsy did not reveal any obvious trauma, Roman was found to be “severely malnourished and dehydrated at the time of his death.”
