The U.S. Attorney’s Office for Eastern Virginia said Justin Travis Taylor communicated with two minors via Instagram and Snapchat beginning in May 2018.

In numerous instances, Taylor threatened to kill himself if one of them did not send him sexually-explicit images.

The FBI said in a news release Tuesday that Taylor, 25, also goes by Justin Travis and soccerrefferee2 on social media, and has worked as a soccer referee at youth leagues and schools on the Peninsula.

Anyone who believes they or someone they know may have been victimized by Taylor is asked to call the FBI’s Norfolk Field Office at 757-455-0100.
