Hacktivist group Anonymous has reportedly tracked down the man who bullied Amanda Todd, a 15-year-old Canadian girl who committed suicide after suffering torment that led to depression and anxiety. Anonymous, the world’s largest hacking group, named Amanda’s alleged bully on Monday in a post on Pastebin.com. The accusers claim that the man who targeted Todd, forcing her to flash him and then spreading these nude images around the internet, is a 32-year-old from New Westminster, British Columbia. The post describes him as the man who “extorted Amanda Todd for pictures. This is the pedophile that social engineered Amanda Todd into supplying him nude pictures.”
“We generally don’t like to deal with police first hand but were compelled to put our skills to good use protecting kids,” read an email sent by Anonymous to Canada’s CTV News. “Ironically we have some good people in Vancouver who brought this to our attention. It’s a very sad story that affects all of us.”
The man who Anonymous identified as Todd’s bully appeared in court on Monday on charges of sexual assault and sexual interference with a minor, unrelated to Todd. The man claims he was Todd’s friend and pointed the finger at a New York man who was harassing her. Police are still investigating the case.
