More possible child victims of man who ran massage business
Authorities are seeking the public's help to identify possible victims of a man, who frequently traveled to Houston, charged with transporting a minor for commercial sex acts.
Jason Daniel Gandy was stopped by immigration officers in the United Kingdom during the London Olympics in 2012 after investigators say he and a boy arrived on a flight originating in Houston. According to the complaint, London officials were suspicious of a 35-year-old man traveling with an unrelated 15-year-old boy. Both individuals were returned to Houston on separate flights.
Upon returning to the U.S., they were met by Homeland Security special agents. Court documents state Gandy ran a massage business out of his home and he was using the 15-year-old boy to give massages and to perform sex acts on clients.
Gandy paid for the boy's trip to London and his passport fees so the boy could perform massages in London, according to court documents, and investigators say Gandy molested the child on more than one occasion.
On July 25, 2012, a judge ordered Gandy to remain in custody pending further criminal proceedings.
According to HSI special agents, Gandy, now 37, frequently traveled to the Texas cities of Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio. He also traveled overseas to the Philippines and Bali, Indonesia.
Authorities are asking the public to report suspected child predators and any suspicious activity through its toll-free Tip Line at 1-866-DHS-2-ICE or by completing its online tip form.
