The FBI is seeking the public’s help in identifying potential victims who attended Playful Painters Child Care in Lincoln, Nebraska, from 2016 to present. Titus Miller, a 26-year-old white male who was employed at Playful Painters Child Care from 2016 until October 2019, allegedly sexually assaulted and covertly produced sexually graphic videos and photographs of his victims.
While it is natural for parents to want to gain a better understanding of the potential exploitation of their child, further questioning of the child may lead to inaccurate statements and increased emotional trauma.
If you have information about this ongoing investigation or believe your child or other children may have been victimized by Titus Miller, the FBI requests you email the following information to Lincoln@fbi.gov:
- Parent/guardian contact information
- Child(ren)’s name and date of birth
- Dates child(ren) attended Playful Painters Child Care
- Attach two photographs of child(ren) who attended Playful Painters Child Care
The FBI is legally mandated to identify victims of federal crimes it investigates. Identified victims may be eligible for certain services and rights under federal and/or state law.
It is important to note that a complaint is merely a charge and should not be considered as evidence of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
