Man Arrested After Confessing To Homicide On Omaha Scanner Facebook Page

Updated: Sep 11, 2020

Omaha Police announce the arrest of 43-year-old James Fairbanks in connection with the death of 64-year-old Mattieo Condoluci, a convicted sex offender, in North Omaha.  He was booked into Douglas County Corrections just after 4:45 a.m. Tuesday morning. 


On Monday, May 18th, a comment was left on the Omaha Scanner Facebook page by Fairbanks claiming to have killed Condoluci.  Fairbanks also anonymously emailed the confession to other media outlets.  


Police continue to investigate the authenticity of the post and emails.  


Police were called to 4305 Pinkney Street Saturday, May 16th at 11:15 a.m. for a reported shooting.  Condoluci was determined to be deceased inside the house.  


According to the sex offender registry, in 1994 Condoluci was convicted of an attempted lewd or lascivious assault upon a child in Florida.  In February 2007 he was convicted of sexual assault of a child in Sarpy County.


Fairbanks begins the post saying "I am writing this email to let you know that I killed Mattieo Condoluci Thursday around 9:45 pm."


Fairbanks says in the post said that he was "apartment searching and checking the neighborhoods when I stumbled across his sex offender registry info."


The post said Fairbanks had spotted Condoluci in the driveway "pretending to wash his truck (…) while staring at a group of children playing in the street."  Fairbanks also said that there was playground equipment in the backyard.


Fairbanks continued “it agonized me for days.  I couldnt sleep.  I researched him more and more…”  


"... i couldnt in good condition allow him to do it to anyone else while I had the means to stop him," Fairbanks says.


“I’m willing to turn myself in even though im confident I wouldn’t be caught because its my opinion that we need to fix this in our society," Fairbanks said.


Fairbanks continued saying "I know this means I will face far more severe punishment for stopping him (…).  But I could no longer do nothing,"


Fairbanks concludes with evidence specific to the homicide.  We are withholding the details of that evidence as the investigation is ongoing.


Throughout the post Fairbanks makes numerous accusations against Condoluci which could not immediately be verified.


Omaha Scanner was the only media outlet to have knowledge of the identity of the man and immediately took the information to the Omaha Police Department. 


Fairbanks continued throughout the evening to post on Facebook and comment on the Omaha Scanner Facebook page claiming to be responsible for the crime. 


If you have any information regarding this or any homicide, please contact Crime Stoppers at 402-444-STOP.

I would happily donate to his defense fund if there is one. I absolutely commend this man for doing what most of us only talk about doing. It‘s absurd that our justice system allows these evil, scum to walk the streets! Child predators should all be put to death, and never be allowed to walk our streets! This man deserves a medal, because of his bravery we have one less pervert living in our communities and stalking our precious children!
