Anonymous Threatens to Reveal Identity of Suspects in Rehtaeh Parsons’ Rape Case

An online hacker-cum-activist group, Anonymous, has alleged that it received dozens of emails from children and adults, few of whom knew the alleged attackers, affirming that the boys detailed their rape of an intoxicated Rehtaeh Parsons. Anonymous mentioned in a statement that “recent statements by police and prosecutors that there simply wasn’t enough evidence to make a single arrest should be viewed solely as an admission of incompetence on their part.”

The group has already threatened to publicly announce the identities of the alleged attackers in case charges aren’t laid in the investigation. The group announced on Thursday, that its own investigation “wasn’t some high-tech operation that involved extracting private messages from someone’s Facebook account.” However, the group alleged that it’s certain that it knows the identities of the four boys accused of raping Rehtaeh Parsons. The 17-year-old girl passed away on Sunday after committing suicide almost a year and a half after she was allegedly assaulted at a home.

The post on the group’s website mentioned that “this wasn’t ‘he said, she said,’” in fact “he said he did it and he said it to everyone while showing them a photo of him doing it.” It stated that “every officer that signed off on this ‘no evidence’ conclusion should be guarding the entrance to a petting zoo for the remainder of their careers.” Additionally, it alleged that “we’re afraid to ask if anyone even bothered to check the EXIF (exchangeable image file) data on the rape/child pornography being openly shared by hundreds of students throughout your community.”
