Feds: This Is the Face of a Serial Predator Who Worked in U.S. Embassies

The FBI is trying to hunt down alleged victims of an embassy worker who allegedly drugged his dates, sexually assaulted them and made sickening videos.



The FBI is on the hunt for potential victims and information about Brian Jeffrey Raymond, a former U.S. embassy employee in Mexico City already accused of drugging and sexually assaulting nearly two dozen women across a decade and several countries.

A notice released this week by the bureau—which has been working with the U.S. Diplomatic Security Service’s Office of Special Investigations and Mexican law enforcement on the case—includes the first public photos of Raymond. It encourages anyone who may have dated Raymond or have information about him to provide details through an online questionnaire.

As The Daily Beast was first to report this fall, Raymond was arrested Oct. 9 outside of a gym in La Mesa, California, where he had been staying with his parents after suddenly quitting his job.

Federal prosecutors described Raymond, 44, as an “experienced sexual predator” whose alleged attacks stretch back to at least 2011. He was initially detained in May by Mexico City police who responded to reports of a “naked, hysterical woman desperately screaming for help” from the balcony of an apartment rented by the U.S. Embassy in the well-heeled neighborhood of Poblado. After claiming diplomatic immunity, Raymond—who insisted the encounter had been consensual—was released and returned to the United States the next day.

In a subsequent search of Raymond’s phone, laptop, and iCloud account, agents from the FBI and the Diplomatic Security Service found hundreds of sickening photos and videos they say showed unconscious women being sexually abused. In some, a man holds open the women’s eyelids, waves their limp arms and legs, or puts his fingers in their mouth, eliciting no response, prosecutors said. In others, Raymond can apparently be seen nude and aroused. A number of the women could be heard snoring in the footage. At least nine of the alleged attacks occurred in embassy housing.

9. From what I am reading, an incident in May in Mexico City brought this all to light.

16. IIRC, date rape drugs cause a space of amnesia before & after administration...

The rapists generally convince their victims that they had much more to drink than they thought, got drunk, and consented to sex. Or that they got drunk and there was no sex.

In the confusion, the victim goes home, has a shower, finds injuries that can’t be explained, and blames herself for getting drunk and saying yes. Remains embarrassed and ashamed. Says nothing.

These men can go on for years and years and years. Several years ago there was an heir to a cosmetics fortune who got caught in Santa Barbara County, one town over from me. One of our local newspapers (the good one) did a really in-depth piece. That’s in addition to what was revealed about Bill Cosby’s criminal career.

Very likely there was nothing to investigate about the embassy employee until finally one woman didn’t stay unconscious as planned and ran out on the balcony naked and screamed at the top of her lungs.

4. When one eye does not match the other, for me, always a red flag.

5. Not sure what that means.

My partner had eyes that didn't "match" and she was the kindest, most gentle person I've ever known.

Judging someone by their physical appearance or attributes like eyes that don't "match" sounds pretty ableist to me.

Just saying.

7. I've had my share of run-ins with creepy men

including one who raped me.

Problem is, it's often impossible to tell the creeps from the good ones. Which is one reason why they're able so often to get away with what they do.
