Seeking Victim Information in Trent Lilly Investigation

The FBI’s Springfield Division is seeking to identify potential victims of Trent A. Lilly, who has been charged with production, receipt, and possession of sexually explicit photos and videos of underage individuals. It is believed Lilly contacted his victims in person, engaging in the illegal activity for years. Although Lilly resided in Central Illinois, he may have traveled to other locations.
If you believe you or your minor dependent(s) were victimized by Lilly, or you have information relevant to this investigation, please fill out this questionnaire. (If you are under the age of 18, please have your parent/guardian submit this form on your behalf). 
If you know of someone else who has possibly been victimized by Lilly, please encourage them to complete the form themselves. 
The FBI is legally mandated to identify victims of federal crimes it investigates. Victims may be eligible for certain services, restitution, and rights under federal and/or state law. Your responses are voluntary but may be useful in the federal investigation and to identify you as a potential victim. Based on the responses provided, you may be contacted by the FBI and asked to provide additional information. All identities of victims will be kept confidential.
