SANFORD, FL (WESH/NBC) - A Longwood, FL man faces several charges after authorities said he planned to rape a young girl, kill her family and film the rape to produce a DVD.

Officials said they received a tip that Shawn Thomas, 29, was going to lure the parents of the girl to a vacant house in Longwood under the assumption of producing a movie or TV show. He then was going to kill the parents with a knife and then rape and kill the child.

Thomas lured a father, grandfather and child to a house saying he was making a student film and needed a model, the FDLE said.

Agents said the family became suspicious and left, but investigators believed Thomas was going to try his plan again this weekend.
