FBI Announces Reward for Information About a Child Pornography Fugitive

Updated April 18, 2017: During the investigation of this matter in the Nashville, Tennessee area on Friday, April 14, FBI agents approached an individual for questioning when the individual took his own life. No law enforcement personnel were injured. The individual was later determined to be wanted fugitive Corey Dejuan Perry.

Despite the main subject in the case now being deceased, investigators are still actively investigating the matter. At this time, we are not in a position to release any further details.

Original release:

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of COREY DEJUAN PERRY.

A federal arrest warrant for Production of Child Pornography, Receipt of Child Pornography, and Enticement was issued for PERRY on March 28, 2017, in the United States District Court, Southern District of Florida, West Palm Beach, Florida. Further details of the alleged crimes are unavailable at this time as those records remain sealed.

PERRY was last seen in Fort Lauderdale, FL, on March 26, 2017, around 2:45 p.m.

He is currently a wanted fugitive.

On April 7, 2017, PERRY’s rental vehicle was found in Fort Lauderdale with the doors unlocked and the keys in the ignition.

Investigators said that evidence indicates PERRY left South Florida and is now believed to be in the Nashville, TN, area where he has relatives.

He may now be clean shaven and/or wearing a disguise to avoid detection.

Further details are contained in a press release.

The Palm Beach School Board Police Department, West Palm Beach Police Department, the State Attorney’s Office for Palm Beach County, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida, and the FBI continue their investigation.

Several victims and witnesses have come forward in recent days to provide information.

Anyone with information as to his whereabouts, or who thinks they may be a victim, are urged to call the FBI in Miami at (754) 703-2000 or your local police department.

No sound or interviews are being offered at this time.
