INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Jay Abbot is the special agent in charge of the Indianapolis Field Office of the FBI.

His office led the year-and-a-half long investigation that led to the arrest of Buster Hernandez.

Hernandez posed as “Brian Kil” online and messaged underage victims, sextorting them to send sexually explicit videos/photos. Hernandez, when the one of victims refused to comply, posted threatening messages on social media targeting schools, its students and his victim.

Abbot stopped by Daybreak to talk about the investigation.
