By all accounts, Katja Goen Zielke, 38, was a Florida loan officer for Wells Fargo, a mother of two young girls, and a noticeably attractive divorcee searching for potentially the next Mr. Right. She met Trinetra Vaidya. According to an arrest report from the Oviedo, Florida Police Department, in November of 2018, Vaidya and Zielke began exchanging sexually oriented text messages that began to include illicit and pornographic photos of undeveloped female girls and requests from Vaidya to Zielke to send him photos of her two girls, 11, and 12, in the shower or changing clothes.
The police report notes that Zielke did not send such photos at that time, but she did continue to exchange sexual fantasy messages with Vaidya (legal) and receive his photos of underaged girls in sexual positions (not legal). At some point, Zielke transferred the messages from her telephone to her computer, at which point the children accidentally came across the text messages. It’s unclear how police were notified, but on January 2, 2018, police conducted an interview with Zielke’s two young daughters wherein the 11-year old told police that her mother had taken photos of her in the shower. The 11-year old was obviously incredibly concerned, for among other reasons, Vaidya was coming to spend the night with his mother that evening. The girl told police that her mother insisted she had deleted the nude shower photos.
On January 6, 2018, Oviedo police returned to Zielke’s home to arrest her, wherein she admitted to all the sexual messages, underaged girl photos, and taking 10 pictures of her younger daughter in the shower, though she denied ever showing them to her boyfriend. As if that’s some kind of saving grace. Not likely.
Zielke was charged with four counts of Child Pornography possession for four photos sent to her by Vaidya of undressed girls in a sexual position, and for Enticement of a Child, for the photos she took of her own daughter in the shower. She’s currently sitting in the Seminole County Jail on $35,000 bond, with a first court date set for February 19, 2019.
If you’re wondering how an attractive, professional woman in her 30’s with seemingly unlimited options ends up exchanging kiddy porn and taking nude shots of her own daughter, wonder right along with the rest of us. You always expect the face of this to be something visually distasteful. Not the hot loan officer from the local bank. A solid reminder, you don’t know what the heck is going in in anybody’s home.
(No word yet on Trinetra Vaidya. A simple search reveals a medical doctor in the area with that name, but no confirmation.)
