We were charge double last month for our data usage at corporate (only at one of our sites)and we are scratching our heads to find out what the source might be coming from since it is only at one site. Everyone at the site uses Fios for internal lan and we do not see this spike at other sites. We spoke with a tech and he stated there would be nothing in the router to pin the source ip. Any ideas on how we should approach this?

This looks like a potential solution,

It has a 30 day free, no limitations trial.   It might be worth a try.     30 days would be enough time to narrow down the data hog and be a great trial of potentially useful software.

You can also try "The Dude" software if you have a managed switch it will tell you how much data is going over which port and it is free..
