Seeking Victim Information in Spencer Investigation

The FBI’s Pittsburgh Division is seeking to identify potential victims of Lance Spencer, who was recently charged with multiple counts of sexual abuse by a person in a position of trust to a child in the Circuit Court of Cabell County, West Virginia. The FBI believes he primarily targeted minor females between the timeframe of 2003-2023 who attended Bozhi’s Gym Nest.

Lance Spencer has been a gymnastics coach for the past two decades.  It is believed that Spencer utilized his position as a coach to gain access to minor females.  There are multiple allegations of Spencer engaging in sexual acts with a minor and inappropriately touching minors under the guise of coaching and/or physical therapy.
