Investigators seeking potential victims of Baxley man charged with child exploitation
Investigators are seeking information from anyone who might have had prior contact with Todd Eric Sisk. U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Georgia, Jill E. Steinberg, said they are seeking potential victims of the Baxley, Georgia man who has been indicted on multiple child exploitation charges.
The City of Baxley is located in Appling County in the Southeastern part of Georgia. Sisk, 48, is charged via federal indictment with attempted production of child pornography, which carries a mandatory minimum sentence upon conviction of 15 years in prison and a maximum sentence of 30 years.
Sisk is also charged with the distribution of child pornography, possession of child pornography, and transfer of obscene material to a minor.
After initiating an investigation into suspicious online activity in November 2021, the Walton County, Florida, sheriff’s office identified Sisk as a suspect and contacted investigators from Homeland Security Investigations in Savannah for assistance.
Investigators found suspected child sexual abuse material on Sisk’s cell phone and in online applications.
Sisk, who was indicted on federal charges in July, is currently in custody, awaiting further court proceedings. Sisk works as a truck driver, and he follows regular routes to Atlanta and Charleston, occasionally making trips to Alabama and Tennessee.
It’s worth noting that he has previously resided in Ohio and at various locations in Florida and Georgia.
Homeland Security investigators are actively seeking information from individuals who may have had any form of contact with Sisk. If you have any information relevant to this case or have interacted with Sisk in the past, please do not hesitate to reach out.
You can provide your information by calling the Homeland Security Investigations Tip Line at 866-347-2423. Your assistance could be crucial in the ongoing investigation.
Steinberg said, “We are committed to protecting our most vulnerable citizens. In collaboration with our law enforcement partners, we will strive to keep our children and our communities safe.”
The case is being investigated by Homeland Security Investigations and the Walton County, Florida Sheriff’s Office, with assistance from the Baxley Police Department, and prosecuted for the United States by Assistant U.S. Attorney and Project Safe Childhood Coordinator Jason W. Blanchard.
