James Fairbanks (Mattieo Condoluci Suspect) Wiki – James Fairbanks (Mattieo Condoluci Suspect) Biography
James Fairbanks is a middle school employee in Omaha, Nebraska who is accused of shooting a registered sex offender to death to stop the man from reoffending and confessing about it on Facebook.
Fairbanks quoted C.S. Lewis on Facebook: “You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” Friends expressed confusion on the May 18 post, with one writing, “At a loss for words my friend. You’re definitely in my thoughts.”
His page describes him as “Dad, devout scifi nerd, lover of spicy foods.” He wrote that he was a “Behavioral Interventionist at Omaha Public Schools,” who served as “SSC at Morton Magnet Middle School,” went to Lincoln High School, studied at Doane University, lives in Omaha and was from Oakland, California. His recent posts criticize President Trump and are laments about parenting.
He was worked at the middle school alternative school Secondary Success Program. Before that, he worked in “behavioral intervention” at another middle school, Omaha World-Herald reported.
Family, Wife, Children
According to the Omaha World-Herald, Fairbanks went through a bitter divorce during which his ex wife, Kelly Tamayo, sought multiple protection orders for things like threatening text messages.
They have children ages 12 and 17.
“We are all in shock to say the least,” Tamayo told the newspaper. “Jim is a protector. He has worked with vulnerable kids his entire career. He took it very personally to protect his kids and other kids from (sex) offenders like that man was.” She told the newspaper she thinks Fairbanks was “overwhelmed by the thought that this man was going to offend again.”
Mattieo Condoluci Death
Fairbanks now stands accused of homicide in the death of Mattieo Condoluci, 64. Condoluci was found deceased at his Omaha home.
Fairbanks is accused of writing a letter to the news media confessing that he killed Condoluci after noticing he had a playground set in his backyard and researching his history. The message was also left on the Omaha Scanner Facebook page.
The email was addressed “Dear media,” and read,
I am writing this email to let you know that I killed Matteio Condoluci Thursday May 14th around 9:45 p.m. While out apartment searching and checking the neighborhoods I wanted to live in I stumbled across his Sex offender registry info. I read where he had molested (raped) two children and beem (sic) convicted twice yet only served two years in prison. For RAPING CHILDREN! I seen his address was right around the block from where I was looking to move. I drove by and to my horror he was standing in his driveway pretending to wash his truck (no soap or water just a rag) while staring at a group of children playing in the street. I watched him for a few minutes and just felt sick to my stomach. He just kept staring at them. The kids thankfully left and he went inside. I went to drive away and noticed to my amazement this twice convicted sex offender had a playground set in his backyard! No fence. Just a slide and a play house. I felt sick to my stomach. Having had my own experience with these type of predators I knew the damage he would do to those kids. It agonized me for days. I couldn’t sleep. I researched him more and more and found he had victimized dozens of kids in different states. One kids (sic) mother had created a predator facebook page about him trying to warn people about him. Her son had been assaulted by him when he was 5 and the damage he did led the poor guy to die of a drug overdose years later and his mom directly bamed (sic) that incident on him… I’ve worked with kids for years who have been victimized and I couldn’t in good conscience allow him to do it to anyone else while I had the means to stop him. I’m willing to turn myself in even though I’m confident I wouldn’t be caught because its (sic) my opionion (sic) that we need to fix this in our socitey (sic). We can not let this continue to happen to out (sic) children. They must be stopped. I know in this messed up judicial system that means I will face far more severe punishment for stopping him then (sic) he did for raping KIDS. But I could no longer do nothing.
Condoluci had a Twitter page with one rambling tweet in the name Matt’s Ministry.
A press release from the Omaha Police Department confirmed that “Homicide Detectives have made an arrest. The suspect was booked into Douglas County Corrections for Criminal Homicide. Suspect/Arrested: FAIRBANKS, James (10/25/76).”
Chief Deputy Douglas County Attorney Brenda Beadle told the Omaha World-Herald that “vigilante justice” is dangerous, saying, “It’s a really dangerous thing, when people start taking law enforcement into their own hands. That’s why we have a justice system.” However, Fairbanks is getting some support online, including from the mother of one of Condoluci’s victims. “This guy needs an award, not jail time!” wrote one of many comments on the Omaha Scanner Facebook page. Some people on true crime groups have compared Fairbanks to the title character in Dexter, where a man targets criminals.
