This Man is a Sexual Predator of Children

This Man is a Sexual Predator of Children

Interpol has made a global appeal for help in identifying the man you see in the professionally enhanced image above.


Photographs posted on the Internet showed the man sexually abusing children. Police stated that the man has appeared in approximately 200 photographs that show the abuse of a dozen boys who appear to be between the ages of 6 and somewhere in their early teens. The photographs were reportedly taken in Vietnam and Cambodia.

Interpol believes the man has been sexually abusing children for years, and that he travels the world in order to gain access to and exploit vulnerable children. Furthermore, they believe the man to be of European origin. Police have released a series of images in an effort to obtain the public's assistance in finding him. The images show a clean-shaven man with slightly receding dark hair who appears to be in his 30's or 40's.

The swirl you see in the left side image above was the digitally altered image that was used to disguise the man's face in the photographs that were posted on the Internet. Using cutting edge technology, specialist German officers were able to decipher the image; and now police need your help if you've seen him or if you can identify him.

If you recognize him or if you have any information that might help investigators, please contact the police in your country.

UPDATE – October 16, 2007:    The man in the photo was identified as Canadian, Christopher Paul Neil. For more information, see post on this site at Predator Update

UPDATE – October 19, 2007:    The manhunt for Christopher Paul Neil is now over, after his arrest in northeastern Thailand. For more details, see post on this site at Second Predator Update

He doesn't deserve to be breathing the air that the rest of us breathe.

Thank you for including updated information on the capture of Christopher Neil, Mark. Two updates have been posted with regard to this story: one on October 16, 2007 titled Child Sexual Predator Update, the other on October 19, 2007 titled Child Sexual Predator Another Update

I handled the story in this fashion rather than post the update as comments in this thread in order to ensure my visitors who opt to be notified of any new submissions (articles, commentaries, stories, queries, etc.) were indeed notified. I have now updated the original article to include brief updates and the URLs to the appropriate pages.

Again, thank you for being so considerate as to keep my visitors updated with regard to this case. Doing so pointed out that I hadn't done enough to keep my visitors in the loop.
