FBI Searching for Man in Connection With Child Sexual Exploitation Case

Authorities are asking for help in identifying a man who agents say may have information regarding the sexual exploitation of a child. Have you seen him?

The following information was provided by the St. Louis office of the FBI.

The FBI is asking for help identifying the man in these photos. Agents want to locate and speak with him regarding the sexual exploitation of a child. Authorities believe the man may have visited a QT gas station, possibly one in the St. Louis area.

More details can be located here on the FBI's website.

The following information was provided Monday in a news release issued by the FBI.

The individual of interest first came to the FBI’s attention in November of 2005, after a series of photographs surfaced on the Internet depicting a prepubescent female, approximately 10 years old, posing naked in sexually explicit positions. The unknown male is pictured on a nearby bed watching the child. These photographs have been circulated and/or traded as child pornography among various illegal Internet forums. 

One of the photographs shows what appears to be a child’s drinking cup from the QuikTrip chain of gas stations. This image led investigators to believe that the photographs were likely taken, prior to November of 2005, in one of the following 13 U.S. cities where QuikTrip stores are located: 

  • Atlanta, GA 
  • Charlotte, NC 
  • Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX 
  • Des Moines, IA 
  • Greenville/Spartanburg, SC 
  • Kansas City, MO 
  • Omaha, NE 
  • Phoenix, AZ 
  • St. Louis, MO 
  • Springfield, MO 
  • Tucson, AZ 
  • Tulsa, OK 
  • Wichita, KS 

A baseball cap displaying what could be the logo of a local sports team, as well as a partial image of what appears to be a telephone book, are also clues which may provide valuable information regarding the location of this endangered child. 

This man’s identity and whereabouts are unknown. He appears to be an older, white male between the ages of 55 and 65 with brown eyes, gray hair, and a full beard and mustache. Charges have not been filed in this case and the pictured individual is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law. 

Anyone with information should contact their local FBI office, submit an online tip here, or call the FBI’s toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI.

Yikes! He looks scary as hell. Just the thought of him looking at the poor young defense less girl is enough for me for him to be guilty. I'm sick and tired of these evil sick people that prey on young kids. I have a 3 y.o. girl I protect her like a paranoid mom. Any male looking at her in any suspicious way has me looking dead at him letting him know he better look elsewhere. When it comes to my kids I don't play that game as a single mom I don't have a choice. I hope the FBI finds this poor girl and saves her real soon.
