A teen charged in connection to the murder of Palmer teen David Grunwald was arraigned in superior court on Tuesday for child pornography charges in an unrelated case, according to court documents.


According to the indictment, 18-year-old Devin Peterson was charged with six counts of being in possession of child pornography, as well as one count of the distribution of indecent materials to minors for posting to Snapchat a photo depicting genitalia. The six charges related to child pornography possession listed photos with .jpg extensions.


In a separate case, charges were filed in Palmer court against 22-year-old Jordan Santistevan after a video was found on on Dec. 7 on a cell phone confiscated during the investigation into Grunwald’s disappearance and murder. The video depicted a male having sex with a young female who appeared to be unconscious, investigators wrote in a criminal complaint. Law enforcement later identified the male as Santistevan, the document says.


The attack happened at a party inside of a garage at the Happy Camper RV Service and Repair Shop in Palmer last summer. When detectives identified the young woman, she told them she didn’t have recollection of what happened on the video and that she was intoxicated at the time. The document says she was told about the video, but had never seen it.


In the complaint against Santistevan, investigators didn’t specifically identify the phone’s owner.


On Tuesday, the owner of Happy Camper RV Service and Repair Shop issued the following statement:



“I, Kelly Engel, owner of Happy Camper TV (sic), service & repair had no knowledge of the alleged crime that occurred at our business. Jordan Santi Stevan (sic) did not have permission to be in any motor homes after business hours. I do not condone these crimes. I do not know what else to say. Happy Camper RV Service & Repair is still a safe, trustworthy place to have a motor home repaired. 


Thank you,


Kelly Engel”
