Child sex suspect arrested, indicted in Jackson Co

GBI, FBI are investigating

Investigators want to know if there are more victims of a man who is facing child sex charges in Jackson County: 56 year-old Mike Blackmon has been indicted on molestation allegations in Commerce. The GBI says anyone who has been victimized by Blackmon needs to come forward.

From WSB TV…

Investigators believe that Blackmon may have also victimized children when he lived in Memphis, Tenn. in the late 90s and early 2000s. Blackmon went by “Mike Blaekman” while in Tennessee, where he owned a hockey shop at the Mall of Memphis. Blackmon coached high school football for several years.

Investigators believe Blackmon left Memphis in 2002 or 2003 after he was questioned for inappropriate contact with children.

The Commerce Police Department, the GBI and the Federal Bureau of Investigation for anyone who knew Blackmon in Memphis.

People with information can call the FBI child exploitation unit at 404-270-8870.
