Less than 24 hours after FBI agents blasted a picture of a suspected child sex predator they dubbed John Doe 27, agents say they have identified the man.
Special Agent David Couvertier confirmed to WFTS-TV that tips generated from the publicity campaign that launched Tuesday have led to the identification of John Doe 27.
Authorities are not releasing the man's name and will only say he resides in the Midwest.
John Doe 27 allegedly sexually exploits children. Agents say he sexually exploited a young girl in at least two videos posted on several online pornography forums.
In the videos, the plaid chair can be seen.
The videos were first discovered online back in April.
As of right now, authorities have not issued or served any arrest warrants.
Agents declined further comment citing an ongoing investigation.
It is not clear if agents have identified the girl or know of her condition.
