FBI Seeking Potential Victims In Jeffrey Pierce Investigation

KANSAS CITY, MO. – The FBI is asking for the public’s assistance to identify potential victims in the case of U. S. v Jeffrey Pierce. Pierce, a high school basketball coach at Seaman High School in Topeka, KS, was charged Sept. 2, 2020, with sexually exploiting minors. Using social networking platforms, Pierce is alleged to have contacted his victims while pretending to be a female teenager. He would then solicit explicit photos or videos from the juvenile victims.

Pierce used the following user/vanity names when contacting his victims through Instagram, Snapchat, KiK, and Grinder:

 

Instagram : addie8651, addiestrode111, Addie Strode, Kennedy Addison Strode

 

Snapchat : jp131780 (Addilyn), Jordan_reh (Kennedy), Kennedy Lacrone, Jordy Rey Rey, jacy townsend

 

KiK: jordyreyrey (Addie Strode) (Kennedy)

 

Grinder: Discreet

 

Pierce, a 40-year-old U.S. citizen, is currently in federal custody and is charged in the United States District Court for the District of Kansas with two counts of producing child pornography and one count of possessing child pornography.
