According to an affidavit, Barter wrote a post on the dark web looking for someone to help him commit "necrophilia and cannibalism" and to contact him, KTRE reported. He also provided two encrypted email addresses as contacts.
An undercover officer intercepted Barter's communication and when he contacted Barter, the suspect allegedly asked "How old is your daughter? Can we kill her?" according to KTRK-TV.
