FBI seeks sextortion victims of man in prison for 105 years

Lucas Michael Chansler

By News Staff


The FBI is asking for the public’s help in trying to track down possible victims of a man who convinced hundreds of teen girls to send him sexually explicit photos, then blackmailing them to get more.

The FBI says 31-year-old Lucas Michael Chansler targeted 350 teens in 26 different states, three Canadian provinces, and the United Kingdom, but only 109 of the victims have been positively identified.

Some of the victims were identified to be from Rhode Island. The FBI says he used multiple screen names, including “CaptainObvious”, “sk8er4life2021”, and “VictorHugo.”

In November, Chansler was sentenced to 105 years in prison after pleading guilty to nine counts of producing child pornography.

Anyone who may be able to help the FBI identify some of the other victims, or if you are a victim yourself, you are asked to fill out a confidential questionnaire on the FBI website here.
