FBI seeks public’s help identifying 11 individuals seen in sexually explicit images of children

UTAH — The Federal Bureau of Investigation is seeking the public’s assistance in obtaining identifying information regarding 11 unknown individuals who may have critical information pertaining to the identities of what appear to be child victims in multiple ongoing sexual exploitation investigations.

Initial videos of one unidentified male – referred to only as John Doe 37 – shown with an infant boy, were first discovered by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in June 2014, according to a statement issued by the FBI Salt Lake City Field Office.

The FBI’s ongoing investigation involving John Doe 37 pertains to the alleged sexual abuse of the infant boy in three pornographic videos.

The exchange image file format, or EXIF, data embedded within the video files indicated the files were produced in April 2012, FBI officials said, adding that audio from the animated film “The Land Before Time” can be heard in the background of the videos.

John Doe 37 is described as a white male with brown hair and wearing dark-framed glasses, authorities said, noting no charges have been filed in this case and the pictured individual is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.

This individual is being sought as part of the FBI’s “Operation Rescue Me” and “Endangered Child Alert Program” initiatives, both of which represent strategic partnerships between the FBI and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Operation Rescue Me focuses on utilizing clues obtained through in-depth image analysis to identify the child victims depicted in child exploitation material. Endangered Child Alert seeks national and international media exposure of unknown adults – referred to as John/Jane Does – who visibly display their faces and/or other distinguishing characteristics in association with child pornography images.

It is estimated that nearly 2 million children across the globe are involved in sex trafficking, with 100,000 of those children right here in the United States. It’s a lucrative business. According to the FBI, sex trafficking is one of the largest and fastest growing criminal enterprises out there.

In addition to John Doe 37, the FBI’s Endangered Child Alert Program is seeking information leading to the identification of the following 10 other unknown individuals.

Jane Doe 36

Jane Doe 36 is described as a white female, likely between the ages of 30 and 40 years old.  She has long, curly brown hair. In August 2016, Jane Doe 36 was seen wearing a pink shirt and a pair of black pants with polka dots.

“It is believed that this individual may have critical information pertaining to the health and welfare of a child,” the FBI states on its Jane Doe 36 webpage. “Jane Doe 36 is not the subject of a criminal investigation and first came to law enforcement’s attention in August of 2016.”

That way we can see how the suit needs to fit you. See, if we take – if he takes those pictures (background voice) then he can see what the suit needs to look like. (Background noise) All right, let me put it over your head and you can put your arm … Now, remember this is his … Looks like it will be nice and cool in the summertime, though. No, I didn’t say we could go swimming. Swimming is – it’s too cold out. Well, more than I want to pay for it right now. I think that part goes in the front.

    Scum bags. I hope they find them all.

  • RealMcCoy October 21, 2016 at 10:40 am

    I’d like to use these cretins as a human pinata.

    • Real Life October 21, 2016 at 1:51 pm

      That’s letting them off easy. They deserve far worse. And there should never be the words uttered, “repeat offender”.

      • .... October 21, 2016 at 4:38 pm

        Sssssssssssssssssh shouldn’t you be at work keeping your mouth shut !

      You can’t do that because you would be violating their rights. and you’re sure as heck wouldn’t want to be caught violating the rights of a criminal in this country because that’s a felony and you could receive prison time.

      In the old days they would just take horse thieves out back and hang them. case closed !

        I think a jury of my peers would be hard pressed to find me guilty, especially when I use a few ‘get out of jail free’ cards I see used often and with success:

        Your Honor, you see, there I was minding my own business and driving down the road when a pedophile that was on the FBI’s most wanted list walked by with a child under each arm. I suddenly suffered a ‘medical episode’ when when my car brakes ‘malfunctioned’ and ran into him. As the children ran off to safety, I was suddenly ‘not in my right mind’ as he was beaten and then torn limb from limb. I can tell you that I’m ‘very sorry’, and the stress from this incident has caused me to ‘suffer enough already’. All I can say is that I was ‘depressed’ from reading the STG News article about pedophiles, and depression caused me to do things “that are very, very out of character for me.”

        I’m sure I’ll get a fine and probation, but I can just #fundraiser for that part.

    Ugghhh…
    These people make me sick to my stomach. I hope they catch them all and put them away for good. I wouldn’t even argue if they wanted to give them the death penalty.

    • .... October 21, 2016 at 4:53 pm

      You can’t give the death penalty to the mentally challenged so RealLowlife will always be protected by that law

  • Bob October 21, 2016 at 1:03 pm

    we got plenty of pedos nestled up in a little place called shortcreek, just up the road, but they are adherents to a mormon-based cult, so they are no prosecuted
