Police Seek Sex-Abuse Victims After Man Confesses During City Council Meeting

Jacksonville Sheriff's Office

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is looking for victims of self-proclaimed child sex abuser Roy Bay.

Bay told the Jacksonville City Council during public comments on a proposed human-rights ordinance last week that he had committed several sex acts with children.

The JSO says a preliminary investigation shows some of the victims may live in Jacksonville, and the attacks may go back as far as 1980.

Investigators say victims are likely white men who were between 10-and-18-years old when Bay molested them.

It’s also possible Bay didn’t act alone.  Police say he may have been in the company of another white man when the abuse took place.

Anyone with information about Roy Bay or his potential victims is asked to contact JSO’s Special Assault Unit at 904-630-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-865-TIPS.
