The half-brother of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is under investigation in Oregon for allegations involving child pornography.

James Auchincloss is accused of possessing child pornography, though no charges have been filed. However, documents supporting the search warrants say a large number of graphic images of young boys have been seized.

In October, police searched the 62-year-old's home in Ashland, a college town on the California border. Affidavits supporting the search were leaked to the Ashland Daily Tidings earlier this month, and the newspaper shared them with The Associated Press.

Friends and supporters say they doubt the accusations. But a longtime personal assistant tells the AP he repeatedly warned Auchincloss about viewing or collecting child porn.

Auchincloss was six years old when he carried his sister's wedding train during her wedding to John F. Kennedy in 1953.
