Paul Matrafailo Victim’s
US Army Captain Erin Scanlon had interacted with the Paul since 2016 when he began investigating her rape case. She was surprised when she received a message from Matrafailo in March 2019.
According to Scanlon, messages started coming in on her Instagram account from user Paul2806. She initially had no idea who Paul2806 was or why he was reaching out to her.
Do I know you? Scanlon asked. Erin its matrafailo, he responded, adding, Fpd, for Fayetteville Police Department. Matrafailo then inquired about Scanlon’s Amazon wishlist, which mentioned lingerie Scanlon was planning to purchase.
His comments to Scanlon included winking face emojis and emojis of faces with tongues out. JW (just wondering) why you have a wish list up? :p, he wrote in one message. He then followed up by commenting, Some interesting things on there ha ;).
The messages were uncomfortable for Scanlon, who’d trusted Matrafailo to help her during her rape case. She quickly ended the conversation by saying, Please don’t contact me again. Matrafailo replied It was meant four someones else. Sorry.
It was very gross, Scanlon recalled. That was when I realized he was making it sexual, and I was not about that, she said. He knew everything about me at that point in my life.
Paul 2nd Victim Message About Her Nursing Outfit
Erin Myers said she periodically received messages Matrafailo, who’d been investigating her rape case. Myers revealed that the words became weird when Matrafailo learned that she was graduating from nursing school.
He was like, ‘Oh, are you going to be in a nursing outfit?’ she told the Fayetteville Observer. Myers was confused by the messages and wondered if Matrafailo was attempting to see how she might reply to the suggestive comments. She suspected they were some test related to her rape case.
Myers told the Daily Mail that Matrafailo’s comments became even more inappropriate when asked if she could wear her nursing uniform for him after she graduated from nursing school. He also asked, do you want to practice on me?
Myers started ignoring the messages until graduation day. Hey, how are you doing? Are you still mad at me? The message read.
Unsure of the sender, Myers asked who was messaging and received a stern response. Don’t play with me. You know who this is. When Myers said she was with family and didn’t have time to chat, Matrafailo replied, Oh, you graduated. Let me take you out. I care for you.

While Scanlon and Myers have spoken publicly about Matrafailo’s messages, at least one other woman who filed a complaint has asked to remain anonymous.
Gerdes said she is disgusted by his behaviour and added that her agency had worked really well with the Fayetteville Police Department.
