A couple of weeks ago I received an email from a friend in NSW publicising the effort to find Daniel Morcombe. As a rule I don’t do anything about pleas such as this because I have been hoaxed in the past, but in this case I made an exception and forwarded the email to my address book list.
Today I read in the paper about a sick individual who has sent hoax emails purporting to have kidnapped the kid. I hope they throw the book at the bastard, ban him from studying at QUT and find some way of denying him access to email forever. (N.B. bunyip: I stopped short of wishing cancer on him).
I would be interested in knowing how he was traced to computers at internet cafes. I understood that if one established an anonymous id at a place like a cafe or the public library, it is almost impossible to trace identity.
