The Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) is publicly looking for a suspicious man on suspicion of serious sexual abuse of several children. The camera he took pictures with was sold in Berlin!

And suddenly these harmlessly cute objects appear frightening and monstrous: With photos of rubber ducks and colorful at least children’s plasters, the BKA is looking for a pedophile who abused seven boys between 2010 and 2019. The youngest victim was just a year old.
The man filmed the terrible deeds and published the recordings on the Darknet. Investigators fear that he is still violating children today, so the public is now asking for help.
The perpetrator is particularly careful when it comes to his crimes: “He has to point out exactly to the perpetrators in general not to show his face on the records,” says Sebastian from the Cybercrime Center Frankfurt.
But the investigators were able to narrow down the age of the man: He shouldn’t be younger than 31, not older than 51. And: he probably has to do with children professionally or on a voluntary basis. On the recordings posted on the Darknet between 2015 and 2019, he also often uses the word “Hy” as a greeting.
Objects from the apartment and clothing of the victims (1 to 10 years) lead the investigators to assume that the acts of abuse took place in Germany.
Even the serial number of a Nikon camera was able to disable the officers. And that it was sold in Berlin-Steglitz between July 2015 and April 2016. Unfortunately, it was no longer possible to determine by whom.
One of the victims’ clothing, furniture and objects from the site of abuse has now been published on the website of the BKA. From socks to corner bathtubs.
The Office for Combating Internet Crime (ZIT) of the Public Prosecutor’s Office is investigating the stranger for serious central abuse, production and distribution of child pornography. Please send information to the BKA either at 0611-55 18 44 4, by email at [email protected] or at any other police station in Germany.
