CBS affiliate, KKTV in Colorado Springs, reports detectives found evidence of sexual abuse on children and child pornography going back at least 35 years.

Davis also lived near a school, community center and park, police say.

"This dangerous pedophile tormented and destroyed the lives of his victims and the community while operating in the shadows to avoid the notice of law enforcement. Through the bravery of his numerous young victims, the defendant was captured, tried, and will now serve the rest of his life in prison," the 4th Judicial District Attorney's Office said in a statement on Sunday.
