“This pervert used social media to track down and prey on a teenage victim,” said Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly. “This is a reminder to parents that not all predators use the cover of a keyboard and monitor to groom children.

Palm Coast Man Arrested For Sex With Underage Girl

Corby Eisman Used Snapchat Map Feature To Locate Teenage Victim

PALM COAST, FL – A 25-year-old Palm Coast man is free on bond after detectives discover that he used a social media feature to locate an underage girl and have sex with her multiple times over a two month period.

The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) Major Case Unit began investigating on August 31, 2022 after deputies were made aware of a possible sex offense involving a teenage girl and an older male. The victim told detectives that Eisman said he was 19 years and that he was aware she was underage.

They met after the victim posted a life story on SnapChat’s Snap Map feature and Eisman used the feature to locate the victim. Using investigative techniques, detectives determined the victim had been sexually battered in Eisman’s home and his car.

“This is exactly why we encourage everyone to be very cautious of what you post on social media and the platforms you use,” said Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly. “Something as innocent as a picture which gives away your location can attract people that want to victimize you. I especially encourage parents to be aware of what their kids are doing on social media platforms and talk to them about social media safety and how quickly a seemingly innocent post can make them a victim.”

Snap Map allows Snapchat users to post photos publicly and share their location in real time with other users.
