ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- The FBI is asking for the public’s help with identifying an unknown man who may have valuable information regarding the sexual exploitation of a child.
The man first came to the FBI’s attention in November 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.
The photographs have been circulated as child pornography on 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 13 U.S. cities where QuikTrip stores are located- one of which is St. Louis.
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 the endangered child.
The 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 a tip online via https://tips.fbi.gov/, or call the FBI’s toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI.
