FBI Special Agent Stacey Bradley was working a particularly gruesome child pornography case when she repeatedly came across photos of children being abused by the same predators. There are thousands of pictures on the Internet of children being sexually exploited. Their abusers' faces are also shown.
The FBI isolates the most recent photos to be sure the victims are still children. For suspects who cannot be I.D.'d, agents work on getting so called John Doe Indictments, then publish pictures of the suspects. So far, photos of three men have been publicized on the FBI's website and on America's Most Wanted. Two of the men are already in custody.
The effort is part of the FBI's Innocent Images Program. Agents there spend hours on the Internet posing as young girls to snare pornographers. They are even coached by actual teenagers.
