Mexico City, Mexico — The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is asking for the public’s help in locating an American man labeled as a serial sexual offender. The man is a former employee of the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City.
The FBI says 45-year-old Brian Jeffrey Raymond from California is considered a serial sexual offender after hundreds of photos were found of at least two dozen women who were unconscious and nude or partially nude. The photos were located on his personal electronic devices.
In their statement, the FBI explained “the investigation into Raymond began on May 31, 2020, when a naked woman was seen screaming for help from the balcony of Raymond’s residence in Mexico City.
“Raymond admitted to having sexual intercourse with her, but the woman reported that she had no memory of events after consuming drinks and food provided by Raymond.
“During the investigation, FBI and DSS recovered from Raymond’s electronic devices hundreds of photographs and videos created between 2006 and May 30, 2020, depicting at least 24 unconscious and nude or partially nude women.
“Almost all of the women in the photos and videos experienced memory loss during their time with Raymond and had no knowledge of the photographs, videos, or any physical contact.
“In the plea agreement, Raymond admitted to having sexual intercourse with two of the women depicted when both were unable to appraise the nature of the conduct. He also admitted that over the course of 14 years, he recorded and/or photographed unconscious and nude or partially nude women and touched their breasts, buttocks, and/or genitalia while they were incapable of consent.”
The FBI says Raymond previously worked for many years at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). In the United States and internationally, Raymond met many of his victims on various dating applications. He speaks both Spanish and Mandarin Chinese.
Rayond has lived in several countries including Peru and Mexico. He worked for the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City from August 2018 until May 2020.
Raymond is scheduled to be sentenced in the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C,. on February 7, 2022, following a pre-sentencing evidentiary hearing beginning on January 31, 2022.
