UPDATE: John Doe 45 Identified By Law Enforcement
Officials with the FBI say the person they were looking to identify has now been identified because people across the country shared the information from media outlets across the country.
Law enforcement officials say they have identified the person labeled John Doe 45 as someone related to the case of 30-year-old Anthony Brett Banks, who was sentenced to 40 years in prison for sexually abusing his biological 9-month-old daughter.
Here is information from the press release from the Eastern District of Tennessee about what Banks pled guilty to in a deal with prosecutors:
As part of the plea agreement filed with the court, Banks agreed to plead guilty to a superseding indictment charging him with one count of transportation of child pornography, in violation of 18 U.S.C. 18 U.S.C. §§ 2252A(a)(1) and (b)(l); and one count of causing another person to transport and ship child pornography in interstate commerce, in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 2252A(a)(1) and (b)(1) and Title U.S.C. §§ 2(b).
Banks even made and sent videos of himself sexually abusing his child. The person that he was sending this stuff to was found in eastern Tennessee.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is asking people to look at this information because they believe this person might have critical information that is needed in reference to the sexual exploitation of an infant whose identity is also unknown.
In a clip of an audiotape, the FBI says the person they are trying to identify said the following phrase,
"Daddy master? Huh, you like daddy master? Yeah, you like?"
According to FBI officials in New Orleans, they are trying to identify this man as they think it's possible to help crack the case. The sound audio of this recording they believe was made between January 2019 and April 2019. The audio comes from a video that was produced, the FBI believes, during the same time frame.
The FBI described the man as being a white male that is likely to be between the ages of 30 and 40 years old. He is said to have brown hair along with a mustache and a beard.
The FBI is asking anyone who knows anything to contact them on their toll-free-tip-line. The number is 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324).
