FBI seeks help to identify victims of suspected serial child predator

ATLANTA, GA (WALB) -

The FBI is asking for the public's help to identify victims of a suspected serial child predator who has been living in the Southeast United States.

According to a report, Matthew John Coniglio, a 46-year-old U.S. citizen who was jailed in Savannah, Georgia on April 10, 2014 for possession of child pornography, committed suicide on April 20 while incarcerated.

Some of the victims have been notified, but agents are asking those who believe they may have been victims to come forward, not only to aid investigators but potentially to seek services through our Victim Assistance Program.

When he was arrested, Coniglio worked as a sales representative for a food distribution company headquartered in Florida.

Video evidence seized at the time of his arrest in Pooler, Georgia suggests that Coniglio drugged multiple young females who he subsequently molested and raped. Coniglio also possessed more than 50,000 images and/or videos depicting child pornography.

The FBI asks that if you have information about the ongoing investigation regarding Matthew John Coniglio or believe you may have been victimized by him, please complete a confidential questionnaire or send an email to FBIvictimassistance@ic.fbi.gov.

You can also contact the FBI's victim assistance toll free number at 1-877-236-8947, your local FBI office, or the nearest American Embassy or Consulate.
