The FBI is desperately searching for the identity of a man they have named John Doe 28. In child pornography footage found after the arrest of another man, John Doe 28 can be seen sexually assaulting a little boy.
It is unknown where or when the video of John Doe 28 sexually assaulting a small child came from.
John Doe 28 — FBI Searching For Sexual Predator
While raiding another suspect’s child pornography footage in San Francisco, the FBI found a disturbing video of a man sexually violating a small boy.
Authorities have named the unknown man John Doe 28. They also released three still images from the video in hopes that someone will recognize the man and report him immediately.
In November 2012, the video was originally reported to authorities after it surfaced online.
Even though the identity of the man is unknown, authorities claim he is around 40-years-old, and they believe he is American based on the one and only word he says during the video: “careful.”
The FBI also hopes the distinctive fish logo on his burgundy shirt will give him away.
Authorities Hope Released Images Will Find John Doe 28
Unsurprisingly, authorities claim that it is extremely rare for a pedophile to show their face in a child pornography video.
“Sometimes we will get some type of identifier that narrows down the geographic region,” Special Agent Karen Jurden stated in the FBI’s press release. “But that didn’t happen in this case. That’s why we are asking for the public’s help nationwide.”
The FBI is heavily leaning on the help of the public, which is why the images have been released to media outlets all over the country.
“It is our hope that someone will recognize this individual and come forward. We were able to recover a very clear image of John Doe 28,” the Special Agent continued.
Anyone with information should submit a tip online or call the FBI’s toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI.
