CLEVELAND — You’ve always heard “no tip is too small,” and when it comes to protecting children from sexual predators, no clue is too small either.
Investigators are hoping a plaid chair, a ring and male pattern baldness will help identify a man known as John Doe 27.
Images of him allegedly engaged in what the FBI described as “sexually explicit activities with a child” were first recorded by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in April of 2013.
Those pictures are still circulating the Internet.
They have been enhanced to reveal a distinct plaid chair in the residence, a bald spot on the back of the subject’s head and a ring on his right finger.
The FBI said the man seems to speak with a southern accent and may refer to himself as “Jimmy.”
He was described as being white, likely between the ages of 40 and 50, with brown hair, graying sideburns, and a bald spot.
He wears glasses and a ring on the ring finger of his right hand.
There is nothing that links him to a specific part of the country, so his whereabouts are unknown.
