Can you obtain a IP address from and old Facebook messenger message

Hi there my wife and I have been harrassed by someone on facebook messenger with 2 fake accounts and they are deactivated now. We still have the old messages but is there a way to tell where they came from. We have a good idea but want to make sure

You can't get the IP address, but law-enforcement can.

But - even if you did get the IP address, what did you think you would do with it? An IP address is virtually useless other than to maybe get a general idea of the location - and even then, that's only if they weren't using a mobile device and/or did not take any of the very simple steps to hide/mask their real IP address.
