Man Wanted on Child Sexual Abuse Charges Identified with FBI’s Facial Recognition Technology

The FBI’s facial recognition technology helped nab a man wanted on child sex abuse charges, Gizmodo reports.

Neil Stammer, who speaks more than 10 languages, was wanted for 14 years and seemed to have no problem evading authorities.

That was until recently when he submitted a visa application at the U.S. Embassy in Nepal under a different name. The facial recognition technology indicated that the visa photo resembled Stammer.

A closer examination determined it was indeed Stammer, who is now in custody and being returned to New Mexico to face child sexual assault charges.

“It could be years until we can accurately pick out a single face in large crowd using this technology, but the days or forged paperwork helping criminals cross borders could well be over,” Gizmodo wrote.

The FBI is urging the public to help identify three people who were on the grounds of the U.S. embassy in Benghazi on the day an attack killed three Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

“We are seeking information about three individuals who were on the grounds of the U.S. Special Mission when it was attacked,” the FBI said in a press release Wednesday. “These individuals may be able to provide information to help in the investigation.”

The grainy photos appear to show three men.
