Who is Tyler Boo?


The WordPress info tells me what queries bring people here. Today, one was “Who was Tyler Boo?” so here is my educated answer: Michael Berenson.

Clues: during his case, evidence was shown to Carol Todd that she had never seen before. It established a very close connection between Berenson and Amanda Todd – so close that he was ordered to pay compensation to Carol Todd.

Secondly, Tyler Boo, when questioned by Amanda about where he was from wrote “USA, USA, USA” and, as seen in this transcript, a flight time of three hours, which would place him in the right area.

So it is Michael Berenson. Not Aydin Coban. End of.

TYLER BOO: sup camwhore, been a while 😛

Quagmire bites the dust (a post for Roy)

Just a quickie. Some info has just been supplied. I will get back to look at it in more detail later. Meanwhile, if anyone wants to have a discussion about this, the comments are open. Not quite sure what this has to do with Amanda Todd if Berenson was only on the scene in 2012. Laters.


A man from Shoreline, Washington was sentenced yesterday to 55 years’ imprisonment for his role in an international child pornography ring, announced United States Attorney Matthew Schneider.

Schneider was joined in the announcement by Special Agent in Charge Timothy Slater of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Detroit Division.

“The way that these offenders worked together to manipulate innocent girls for their own sexual gratification is truly horrific.  And, the way that this defendant in particular extorted these children is especially heinous,” said United States Attorney Schneider.  “Parents, please speak with your children about sextortion and cyberbullying so we can keep all of our children safe.”

Sentenced was Michael Berenson, age 30.  In addition to his prison sentence and term of supervised release, Berenson was ordered to pay 5,000 in restitution to each of the identified victims, reaching a total of over 80,000 dollars.  United States District Judge Judith Levy of the Eastern District of Michigan imposed the sentence.

According to court records, from at least January 2012 to November 2014, Berenson was part of a group of individuals that worked together, using the Internet, to entice minor females to produce child pornography via web camera on an unmonitored chatroom-based website.  The men recruited the victims from common social media platforms by pretending to be teenage boys interested in chatting with the girls in real time.  Once the victims arrived in the chatrooms, the group—all pretending to be teenagers—worked together to build trust and convince the children to engage in sexually explicit conduct on web cameras.  Group members then recorded that activity.  The girls were unaware that the men were making recordings.  Berenson is the 25th defendant to be sentenced here in the Eastern District of Michigan for conspiring to exploit children on this unmonitored website.

Berenson participated in this group from its inception in 2012 until this particular group ceased activity.  Berenson however, remained active, targeting minors, directing them to engage in sexual acts, recording such acts and blackmailing the minors until the execution of a search warrant at his residence on May 10, 2017.  Berenson also encouraged girls to self-harm and recorded them doing so.

Berenson admitted to victimizing over 1,000 minor girls over the course of the last 10 years.  Some of the girls were as young as nine years old.

To date, a forensic examination of his devices recovered over 9,600 videos and images of child pornography and 105,347 child exploitive videos and images.  Berenson recorded over 1,128 hours of videos of child pornography and over 3,000 hours of child exploitive conduct.  Sixteen parents and victims were present for the sentencing hearing and made statements to the Court.  Among those present was Carol Todd, the mother of Amanda Todd who died by suicide in October of 2012. A website dedicated to Amanda Todd can be found at http://www.amandatoddlegacy.org/.   The FBI has so-far identified approximately 20 victims in the United States.

Assistant United States Attorneys April Russo and Kevin Mulcahy of the Eastern District of Michigan prosecuted the case.  The FBI’s Detroit Field Office and Southeast Michigan Trafficking and Exploitation Crimes task force investigated the case.

The case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse, launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice.  Led by U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and CEOS, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.  For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit http://www.justice.gov/psc.

Amanda Todd’s Rapist?



This is a copy of an earlier post. It was a bit boring, but now Dad has got involved and he comes in for a bit of criticism. I have a feeling this young man is now a father, which brings the End Times closer.


Young Mr Tarras has been mentioned here before.

‘Nik, this kid, from Maple Ridge, has lived in Chilliwack. this is the type of guy that will do ANYTHIGN he can to f’ you. He has raped girls, slept with 13 yer olds and also had to go to court with Amanda Todd because she claimed rape. ‘

This source is hardly reliable. I guess that a young girl has posted this as revenge. Is it true? His name has been linked to the Todd story via a leak from Carol Todd that was quickly censored. It now makes me wonder if that wasn’t a deliberate effort by Mrs Todd to draw attention to him.

If true, it adds another tragic incident to the Amanda Todd history. Nothing like this has appeared so far, but it would certainly go towards trying to discover just what contributed to Amanda’s mental health problems.

My initial feeling is that this isn’t true, based on the lack of any reference to this in Amanda’s video, but it raises further alarms about the lawlessness of sites like this. If we assume Renan Tarras is innocent, then this is all terrible libel and defamation. Any employer could find this information or any vigilante nutcase could use it as an excuse for violence. But who will police it all? Will anyone object to it and have it taken down? I suspect that the writer will have found great delight in letting Renan know about it. If the court case did happen, then it is likely that all the names would have been kept secret, yet one malicious person has now spilled the beans.

Renan and/or friends of his have commented on this blog. Maybe they can provide more information.

Aydin Coban’s first victim is doing well

Julia Batterman, one of Aydin Coban’s early victims, seems to be doing very well. That is an oddity for most people caught up in all this.


It will be interesting if she is called up as a witness should Aydin ever get to trial in Canada.

Amanda Todd wasn’t on her own



As the Coban trial continues, it gets more shocking. Apparently he had 204,000 porn pics on his hard drive, he was in trouble with the Grijze Wolven. As most of it is in Dutch it’s a pain to work out the details. Add in the thing about 7 gay Australians and it starts getting too weird.

Meanwhile I’ve reissued these pics from the catalogue. The clip is actually far worse than this can show and makes the BlogTV episode look mild. It’s really this clip that puzzles me most as it’s so far away from the ‘it was a brief flash’ storyline and involves another kid who was very much part of Amanda’s scene but never gets a mention.

Because of this clip, Amanda’s BlogTV shows and so on, it’s tough to match the current narrative of one action followed by years of torment.

Just in case anyone thinks this isn’t Amanda, then OK, you’re entitled to that. Just ask Carol Todd though – she’ll remember that Amanda had a pair of trousers (or ‘pants’ as they are called in the USA) with ‘CHEER’ written on the bottom. And she’ll recognise the soft toy. And Amanda’s old bedrooom.

It looks as if there are a few latecomers to the blog, so rather tediously I have to re-visit old news.

Recycled for newer visitors


Copied from April, 2013

Sorry about the jpg. Just click on it.

This is Amanda Todd on BlogTV.

As you will see, the capture is from December 5th, 2010. That’s ten days after ‘cutieelover’ aka Amanda Todd joined BlogTV. What she did, or where she was prior to that, I don’t know at the moment. This is eighteen days before the police arrived on her doorstep on December 23rd.

Note that the BlogTV rules are absolutely clear. I have criticised BlogTV (now YouNow) for allowing things, but to give them credit, they were quite clear about the rules, and very quick to ban people who broke them. There is no real excuse for not knowing that nudity was frowned upon. As we know, cutiielover was banned twelve days later.

Amanda is quite well-known. It is possible that, from the commencement of her membership of BlogTV on November 26th, she could have received quite a following – reputations grow fast online.

Note: this may not be the full online conversation for December 5th. I originally thought that this might be the beginning of it all, but it is possible that there were earlier comments.

The first comment available is a cordial ‘sexy’. The second comment from cutieelover is – well, what? – poignant? Could that be the word? I don’t know. Or it could just be straightforward. Who can tell?

‘im not like that anymore’

What can anyone read into this? It sounds quite forlorn, like she’s realised something, and has decided to stop. On it’s own, it sounds like it’s a finality, but, sadly, we know that just a few days later she was flashing again, and that this behaviour continued on for quite some time. Can we deduce any period of time from this? Like I said – and I hope – her reputation might have simply grown in the previous two weeks, but I retain a slight idea that these are the words of someone who has been quite known for some time. But that is irrelevant, really.

It looks like one of her fans issues a ‘sigh’ of disappointment. Or of shared sadness?

I guess that the next comment is from someone new to the room: ‘what were u like’.  The answer is horrible.

‘a slut’.

The newbie answers a plaintive and shocked ‘oh’. Someone posts a picture.

‘lol….i kinda like sluts’ – seen as positive feedback?

The newbie asks her what made her change her mind.

‘idk why’ is Kon*** basically answering his own statement two lines above.

Another person enters the room.

Dun*** writes: ‘she is a slut she still is 1’. How is that meant? How is that taken? A joke? An insult? Horrifyingly aggressive male words? Or teen nonsense?

And then we have it:

‘all my friends found my pic’

Not ‘I’ve been stalked’. Not ‘I’ve been blackmailed’. All her friends found her pic.
