Amanda Todd flashing – the conclusive evidence

I suggest that readers make themselves a cup of tea or a stiff drink – or both. Settle down and get comfortable – this will probably be a long entry, and at the end of it I guess people may well be stunned. This is the end, my friend. Forget the predator stories completely. Forget the bullying. From this video, we can now fully ascertain just what was going on. And it’s not nice. The story is finished. And so is any pretence that it wasn’t down to bad parenting.

Amendment: When I first wrote this, I thought it was impossible for Amanda’s parents not to know what was going on. With news of Jessi Slaughter (her dad in the background) and Aurora Eller (her dad accused of supplying booze and being quite involved) it was not so difficult. However, in the 5th Estate documentary Amanda writes about going to bed, logging off, and then going back on again. Therefore I conclude that she might have been interrupted in this video. This post has been slightly edited to reflect that. Note: the video I refer to is featured in the 5th Estate documentary.

Original text:

Yes – you read it right. Norm was there, in the same room as Amanda. How could I have been so slow? After getting a huge amount of tips and hints, I have finally seen what I should have seen a long time ago. My readers will know that I purposefully steered clear of the worst of Amanda’s videos. Most people have seen them, and I felt that they added nothing to the blog.

But this video ‘escaped’ just recently. It was seen by someone called DeeJay Bewy, and she almost immediately denied its existence. And it prompted me to take a second look. The video can be found if you look for it. I will provide details at the end of today’s entry but be warned – it’s on a horrendous site.

I’ve seen the evidence before, hundreds of times, but I just wasn’t looking closely enough. Way back at the beginning of the story, I had a ‘eureka’ moment when it sunk in that, on paying really close attention, it was quite obvious that Amanda had never self-harmed – there were absolutely no wounds or scars in any of the pictures, and people will know that she liked to show off her legs and arms a lot. Later on in the story, I was so bogged down with looking for evidence, writing these posts and trying to work things out, that I took my eye off the ball and wasn’t reading Carol Todd’s blog, in which a lot of the lazy parenting is shown. And I simply didn’t look at the video that I describe here today – in which we see Norman Todd and his daughter together for the first time, when Amanda is preparing for what is termed a ‘bate’ session – one featuring genital touching and more.

So here it is. The conclusive evidence – not only that Amanda was addicted to showing off on webcam, but that Norman Todd knew. Without further ado, here is the final condemnation.

The video is 8 minutes and 18 seconds long. However, it has, in fact, been edited and cut down, as there are several parts missing. But it’s enough to show what is going on. Regarding Norm’s appearance, I will be giving two opinions – one that maybe let’s him off the hook a bit, and another in which he is totally and utterly condemned. You can choose which one to believe.

In case anyone raves about this being unfair, I have contacted the police and warned them about what I will be saying. I have also tried to notify close family.

So on with the video.

First off, I have no idea where this is filmed. It looks like a large untidy bedroom, and I would suggest it’s at Missezula Lake (it might be one of the famous ‘Missezula Lake’ events), but I’m not sure. Amanda has the webcam completely set up at the end of the bed, with what looks like a microphone stand on the left hand side, and she is sitting on a chair. There is no sound available, which is a shame, and I won’t even try to guess what is being said. She is in ‘show’ mode, fully clothed.

At 0:42 she gets on the bed in a sort of pose – one like you might see in a provocative movie. She waves her rear in the air. More provocative moves follow – it’s obvious that she is responding to things being said via webcam, as she pulls up her knickers to show them off.

At 1:47 she rather jokingly puts her hand down the front of her jeans, then laughs. She is quite enjoying this. Is it just an individual on the other end of the webcam? I doubt it, as this encounter has been capped. But for sure – Amanda is certainly not 12, this is certainly not the first time she’s done this, and as we know, there is no coercion or threat involved. It could possibly be just for a friend.

She continues looking at the webcam, so I’m guessing she’s getting some written feedback, which would suggest that she is in a chatroom. She is quite happy. Maybe she’s waiting for a few more viewers.

At 3:21 she gets back on the bed to pose some more. It’s pretty harmless. At 3:37 she pulls her jeans down to reveal her knickers – in response to a webcam request, I guess. There is a jump – whether this is an edit or not, I don’t know, but this is where the scene gets strange.

At 5:09 she’s out of her jeans, and seems to be getting in to bed. At 5:22 she puts the light out, and it looks like she covers herself up to go to sleep.

At 6:00 another person can be seen entering the frame at top right. Who is this? This is crucial.

This is what I think has happened: Amanda has gone to bed, but someone – Norm? Laura? perhaps even Carol? – has heard her talking, and has come up to check. Amanda has raced back into bed, in comes the mystery figure to check that she is asleep and to say goodnight. I think it is Norm.

But could it be something more sinister? Surely, no-one could have missed the light that was coming from the webcam? Wouldn’t a parent figure have told Amanda to switch it off? Or did Amanda disguise the webcam behind a table lamp? That is the big question. Just who was the mysterious figure?

I was first tempted to think that there was an observer in the room. There are, as far as I can recall, pictures of Amanda from the side of the bed in this performance. But she could have just moved the webcam. And this video is, I think, cut short, with a few more incriminating acts to come. However, it could be possible that the other pictures were from ANOTHER video in the same room at a different time. It’s difficult to tell. But I can’t figure out if it is an observer, as Amanda seems to be oblivious to anyone else in the room

I think it’s a man. I think that the glint on the person’s arm is either a wristwatch or some kind or arm bracelet thing. But what does he do? Does he pick up some sort of jacket or something from next to Amanda’s bed? Or does he strike in in some way? I think he’s picking up a jacket. Could it be a boyfriend? Or even her brother? But then why did she rush into bed and put the light out? At this point, I offer it up to readers to make their minds up, but I think it is a parent figure who has come in to check on what’s going on.

Nothing much happens until 7:39 when Amanda’s arm appears from nowhere, then at 7:58 she’s back again. At 8:08 we can see that she is now naked below the waist, and I think that it is at this point that the show gets worse, as other pics would testify.

So there it is. The video can easily be found – just Google ‘Amanda Todd motherless’ and it’s there. HIGH WARNING: THE MOTHERLESS SITE IS A LOT LOT WORSE THAN CAMERACAPTURES AND SHOULD BE AVOIDED BY ANYONE UNDER 18.

So I’m done for a while. It’s time for some time off. We all now know that Amanda was a webcam addict, that she enjoyed it, that there was no coercion, no predator – that it was all a pack of lies. She wasn’t twelve when a ‘one-off’ photo was taken; she wasn’t followed around by a stalker; none of it is true. She wasn’t depressed, she wasn’t agoraphobic, she wasn’t a friendless isolated soul. Just look at all the pictures.

Amanda was just a wayward child, allowed to run riot by useless parents, who eventually came to grief through her own actions and the terrible inaction of all those round her. A tragedy? No more than a kid starving to death, beaten up regularly, or without access to clean water. What is tragic is that Carol Todd has managed to achieve sainthood through stupidity. And that Canada seems to accept it all.

But what truly disgusts me is that Carol Todd continues to reap the benefits of her daughter’s infamy, knowing full well what she did, and knowing full well why her daughter attracted such adverse attention. All the time, she has concocted a story to make her appear blameless, whilst encouraging everyone to believe a mythological tale of poor old Amanda and fantastic mother.

By now, people know what to do. Complain to the IWF or CEOP about these videos. Here are the links again:

Mrs Todd may not care about these disgusting videos, but at least someone does. Complain, complain, complain! My evidence might be destroyed like it was last time, but that’s just the way the cookie crumbles. Amanda MUST be allowed to finally rest in peace, and getting rid of these things is a small part of it. People will know that I get angry, so it’s time to sign off.

Thanks to all my supporters. Love to all – and remember – be kind, be nice, but above all be happy!


Just in case you’re wondering: the selfie in underwear is rumoured to be Amanda’s Facebook profile picture. Personally, I think it’s photoshopped.

And in the collage of photos, the top two on the left are from this video. The pictures below them (rather vague) are, I believe, from later on in the same video, but they could be from another show. All the other pictures on the right are from earlier flashing videos – the one where she is with Bianca, and the one as cutiielover on BlogTV.


Amanda Todd – One step closer to the truth.


Sorry about the jpg. Just click on it.

As soon as one thing seems to get resolved, something else crops up that turns a lot of the story upside down again. There is a lot of grief in this – not just for the main participants, but for those other, more innocent victims of the witch hunts, the hatred, the suspicions. And for all those people from all across the world, all those genuine people, all those kids who have cried about this, it’s a terrible shame.

We have – and it saddens me to say this – been severely tricked.  I thought that  I would be jumping for joy as I learned that more and more of what I was saying was coming true, but instead I’m simply becoming more disheartened.

The details I have posted today are true. I will seek to evaluate them as clinically and as precisely as I possibly can. At first, I was just tempted to post the screen cap and leave it up to readers to make up their own minds. But, as usual, I will try to analyse what is behind all of this.

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’

What in God’s name would make a girl say this? Here are some attempts to explain, but first let me say that it is significant and important. It points strongly towards why so many people used the word ‘slut’ to describe her – it’s the term she has applied to herself. It is actually Amanda herself who first uses the term to describe her own behaviour. People would have read these comments, and no doubt her friends would have heard her say it.

There are two reasons why she should have said this. The first is quite a cold-hearted suggestion; the second is gut-wrenchingly sad. I would prefer to choose the first. It kills me more to choose the second.

The first reason: Amanda is relatively proud of being seen as a slut. It’s a sort of show-off, attention-seeking phrase – ‘Look at me! I’m a slut! I’m not a mundane nobody, I’m someone who boys queue up to see! I’m the centre of attention, and that makes me feel important!’

Look at the news. We live in a society where sluttish behaviour makes you rich and famous. You know the names, I have no need to make a list. Reality TV praises the slut, denigrates the nice people. Look at the magazines aimed at later teens, read by 12-year-olds. In the UK, it’s ‘Nuts’ and ‘Zoo’. And those idiotic cretins who invented ‘slut walks’ – be proud that you look like a slut! Have they ANY idea what they are doing? (OK, reader, I’ll get down off my soap box)

Like so many words these days, slut has lost its meaning. It’s tossed around school playgrounds as easily as the old words like ‘fatty’ and ‘foureyes’. There is a distinct possibility that Amanda uses the term ‘slut’ as a badge of distinction.

The second reason: (this is appallingly sad) Amanda might have had such low self-esteem that she had become used to calling herself a slut. Why she would do this, I don’t know. From family background, I would guess the origin lay elsewhere. There are plenty of vile parents who will destroy their kids’ self-worth, but I don’t see that here. If anything, it might have been the opposite from her parents – they might have built her ego up to massive  proportions.

So why would she tag herself a slut? Did she go online, get naked, expect to get praise but get called a slut? Did she find that the only way to get the BlogTV viewers interested was to behave like a slut? It is extraordinary how dependent kids are on online feedback, and we know that Amanda was addicted to it.

Another, less probable but viable view is this: we know that Amanda possibly suffered from learning difficulties. She may well have had a huge sense that she was, in some way, a disappointment and failure. She had tried desperately to publicise herself online and elsewhere – singing, cheerleading – but it looks like the only thing she, as a person, felt that she truly excelled at, and that got her the attention, was to be a slut.

I must move on. 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. To me, this proves that the blackmail case is now closed. She said this to cover herself. There WAS a lot of stuff going on a la Peyton Ramsey, and it’s all very convoluted. But you can strike ‘blackmail’ and ‘stalker’ from the notebook for now.

I will leave it there for now. Tomorrow, there will be more about what really happened. It might take me time.

So – return to this blog – same Philip time, same Philip channel (that’s old skool Batman, just in case no-one knew).






Amanda Todd – information about her videos

99.9% of people viewing this post will, I think, be looking for links to Amanda’s videos.

When this post first appeared, it was a reaction against all the people online who were saying that the videos never existed. Now, even the most ardent Todd fan will have to admit that it wasn’t all about one photo.

It is, of course, illegal to provide links. Even some of the photos here are borderline illegal. However, I have left enough information in to show that there are three known videos of Amanda online. Really, they don’t amount to much. Compared to other activities online, they are pretty innocent.

These are pictures from what I believe to be Amanda’s first online show. I think it’s important to note that she wasn’t alone. She is with her friend.

Amanda is in yellow.



Amanda found fame on Daily Capper videos, here along with the others:

This was a cartoon that was published. It sums up Amanda quite well.

todd cartoon

I have published this picture to show that Amanda was quite obsessed with putting pics online.


Though the story says that Amanda was supposedly friendless, this was on her 15th birthday.


Since I originally made this post, a lot more news has been shown – specifically in the documentary ‘The Sextortion of Amanda Todd’, in which it is acknowledged that Amanda displayed herself in chatrooms and that, when the cops arrived in December 2010, Amanda’s opinion was this ‘it’s no big deal’.

Amanda’s pictures still exist in certain places online. As an example of the type of place they showed up: (BlogTV changed its name to YouNow).

I still feel bad about showing pictures of Amanda. So why show them? Even now, so many people deny that they exist. People have accused me of some sort of slut-shaming or victim-blaming, but I still think that it’s important to investigate the Todd story in its entirety. Evidence of her videos appears on these sites.

Amanda was active on YouTube, but she had to delete her entire account (isabella100555) as she mentions here:

Amanda’s life was possibly more complex than we know:

Who is Renan Tarras? Did he really rape Amanda?

I have Amanda Todd’s chatlogs, which are interesting. The one when she got banned is here:

and the strange one is shown here:

I describe Amanda’s later video here:

What actually happened around December 2010?

Amanda and her friend in the picture were active online. Basically, they were best buddies. Amanda and her friend had a fight, the knowledge of BlogTV came out in the open, all of Amanda’s friends then found out what she was up to.

This friend wrote on about Amanda:  ”DONT EVEN SAY THAT NAME. shes nasty greassy and she has no life so she stays on the computer all day finding fake guys to date in toronto !’

It was all like the movie Mean Girls.

Amanda also used to appear with her friend Shylah Watson. Shylah Watson was the ‘other’ girl in the Mandaa&Shyy videos who used to flash alongside Amanda and on her own. I have left her name because she identifies herself in the 5th Estate documentary.

Note that the Mandaa&Shyy video was three weeks after the cops arrived to warn Amanda, so it looks like she didn’t learn from that warning.

That’s all folks. Anyone who is genuinely interested in the Amanda Todd story will have to read the rest of the blog. If you were here just to look at her noodz, then for God’s sake, get a grip!












Nothing to say today – so a couple of simple questions

amanda + friend

The Amanda Todd story is grinding slowly but surely to a halt. There are still a few late-comers to the story, and inevitably they make the same mistakes – acknowledging her exhibitionism while still going on about a 32-year-old stalker, or more often than not putting it down to just one photo, when we know by now that it was many online appearances.

If they just took a look at just one of the videos – a still photo is featured here – people would realise that the story of coercion or seduction to go online is laughable. About 3 seconds after this still, Amanda Todd flashes not just once, but twice, her and her friend just laughing and smiling.

And of course, it’s not just the one video appearance. You will see that this video is from BlogTV, and I’m guessing that it is quite early in the history. Amanda started getting banned from BlogTV in December 2010 for her many nude appearances and, of course, she didn’t stop at just baring the chest. The pictures show more, and it has been alleged that she indulged in masturbation online. All of this was, of course, known about and discussed by her mother, Carol Todd. Who let it all happen. Good old Carol – never one to be too strict.

I strongly suspect that the stalker story was hastily concocted between mother/daughter when the police arrived, in a desperate attempt to put the blame on someone else and avoid all claims of child negligence and delinquency. The photos went locally viral simply because there were so many of them – not because of some stalker. Amanda just used her knowledge of the Daily Capper world to escape any disapproval – she knew there were blackmailers mentioned, and it was highly convenient. And it became a story that became more and more difficult to maintain – probably contributing to her mental anguish. If she and her parents had just faced the truth in the first place and dealt with it, none of this would have happened. Just note: her getting beaten up and the consequential hatred had nothing to do with the photos. They had been forgotten. She simply was not liked.

So one question: did the police simply go and ask her friend about whether Amanda was tricked into flashing? And did her friend answer ‘No way’?

It now looks like the other girl in the picture has been identified as Bianca Maria Nitoi:

Day 6 – What happened in 2009?

Amendment: At this point I was still poking around in the dark. Dating all of Amanda’s activities was difficult. Even now, it’s difficult to know when it started and finished, but basically it looks as if it all kicked off in late 2010 and went on to at least November 2011. The chatlogs put precise dates on it.

OK. So Day 5 came, I was ill, there was no post. Apologies to anyone who was disappointed. Day 5 has now become a brief overview of the Amanda Todd video and its impact for anyone new to the history. I have also updated the ‘About’.

Day 6 will focus on Amanda’s activities in 2009. As usual, it is difficult to definitely find the right chronology, so some of this will have to be guesswork.

I am putting the flashing video (where she wears a yellow top) as being dated some time in 2009, when she was 12. I am placing the ‘green top’ pictures as later on – possibly the end of 2009, early 2010 – and the ‘black top’ pictures as 2010, when she was featured in the Capper Awards. However, I can’t be sure.

CORRECTIONS: I am now placing the ‘yellow top’ flashing at late 2010; the ‘green top’ has now been placed at December 17th 2010; the ‘black top’ at any point in 2011.

There are two reasons I’m confused about the dating. Firstly, most webcam channels have lower age-limits – 13 – and Facebook and MySpace follow the same policy. But I have assumed (with valid evidence about to be shown) that Amanda lied about her age from the start on every channel registration.

Secondly, in her video, Amanda states that her alleged stalker waited a whole year before contacting her with a picture, placing the occurrence in 2009. But this in itself is odd. Why would a stalker wait for a year? If it was him (Note: I will, for ease, assume that the stalker is male, which is rather sexist of me, and perhaps wrong. The ‘Megan Meier’ case (easily Googled and on Wikipedia) shows that females can be just as bad) then, having conned her into flashing, why wait? I think this is nonsense. My view is that Amanda published many photos/videos of herself in 2009/2010, and it was only when she achieved a certain level of notoriety in 2010 that she was really noticed. At this point – if the story is true – a potential stalker only had to search online for an available photo – one that just by chance happened to be from a year earlier.

Also note at this point – to be expanded later – that my view is: when Amanda got caught out after a couple of years of online flashing, she panicked. If she had admitted it, people would have been angry, and she might have been punished. So she invented a story, in which she became an innocent naive victim. Those surrounding her had no idea that so many other photos existed, and she got away with it. And she persisted with the story in her video, unaware that anyone with a hint of Google knowledge would uncover her history. The explosion of her picture at school and amongst her family wasn’t the product of a stalker – it was just her attention-seeking backfiring, and her photo simply went minorly viral. More later.

So – on with 2009. This centres on her MySpace entry:

First thing to see: by hovering over her profile picture, it clearly states ‘Female Age: 24’. She has added 8 years to her age. This would have made her appear to be 20/21 when she was online. Why would she lie? A child-like entry done for unimportant fun? Or a cunning entry by a very computer-literate kid to hide her genuine age? Her supporters will obviously make nothing of it, putting it down to innocent, girly fun. I, however, think it is more relevant. It highlights her dangerous precocity, her need to appear older, and the ease with which she lies. Really – not the actions of the innocent angel who was too young to know what she was doing.

More importantly regarding her age, it would give her access to off-limits channels such as BlogTV and Stickam, and entry to Facebook. Depending on what she also did with it, it could also show that she could have access to other things that only 18-21 year olds could acquire. It also means that when she did appear on BlogTV or anywhere else, her viewers and cappers would be quite within their rights to assume (rather blindly, of course) that she was not a minor – fair game for any shenanigans. So she put herself in danger, yet again.

or Formspring:

OK – you can kind of see where I’m going with this. Darian Finley – are you out there?

So – odd friends on MySpace. Friends with Darian on BlogTV; who is called ‘neednakedpics’, ‘iwannafucku’, ‘Skannkkbitchhfuckkkerrrrrrrrr’ and other charming names. One is known by the friends one keeps, surely?

Somewhere on her MySpace comments, Amanda also mentions that she is ‘more familiar with Facebook’. I will try to find that. However, try as a I might, I can’t find any Facebook records. Any help?

I’m signing off for a while. I might be back with Day 6, Part Two – if not, then Day 7 it is. I will continue with an analysis of Amanda’s pictures on MySpace, and hopefully get to move on to her many other identities on other channels. Any information on cutiielover, AnnouncingAmanda, Announcing Amanda, isabella10005 or any variations, and Mandaa&Shyy would be appreciated.

Thanks for your patience. With any luck, I’ll soon reach the events of 2012. Ta ta for now!

Day Four – Part Three – Amanda Todd pictures

Amendment: At this stage, people were still saying that Amanda only ever produced one picture. People were in major denial that she had ever been on BlogTV. We now know who the other girl is. Also, a lot of information was still missing. It was only later in the blog – when the chatlogs are published and much later after the ‘Sextortion of Amanda Todd’ documentary – when things become clearer.

As an added bonus, there are three posts today. I’m guessing this will be the most controversial so far – but just how controversial can it be when I only get about two views per day?

I am interested in information about the pictures on this website (ones that I guess everyone has seen by now):

I’m assuming that the top picture is the first real evidence of Amanda Todd flashing. I would place this around 2009, but it’s confusing that it’s obviously from BlogTV, which doesn’t get mentioned until 2010. It’s also confusing that even BlogTV had age limits – minimum 13 – but, of course, we know she lied about her age a lot. It’s taken from the first video she placed online, and it’s a still taken about 2 seconds before any naughty activity.

This picture is important for many reasons. The video – for the three people on the planet who haven’t seen it – clearly shows that it’s done for fun. There is no creepy predator involved – it’s a pleasurable act done by two kids for attention. For a laugh. It’s done like a performance to camera – a rehearsal for the shows that were to come. Rumour has it that the video still exists and is on show on at least one website (to be named later), but even I couldn’t look through the listed 7,000 videos to find it.

So, people – just grow up. This idea that some pervy predator stalked her online and got her to flash is complete bollocks – she was an entertainer, for God’s sake. Think for a minute. If all this nonsense came from one sneaky little photo, where on earth did all the rest of the photos come from? If it is so easy to find photos and videos of her online, wouldn’t it also be easy for all her school chums to find out? A blackmailer wouldn’t have much of a threat – why would he put one photo of her around, when there are already millions of them available and widely known about, and she was virtually prime-time viewing?

However, I’m jumping the gun a bit here. What I would like to know is: who is the OTHER girl in the frame? I have a sneaking suspicion it’s one of three choices, but I would like to go on more than just a guess. Why didn’t the police just simply go to her and say ‘Were you coerced into prancing around your bedroom for a few minutes before coquettishly exposing yourself?’

Anyway – enough for now. Tomorrow I will try to get back to the proper chronology – what exactly was she doing in 2009?


Day Two – the early Amanda Todd

So – Day Two didn’t get off to a good start, as I lost my original text due to WordPress glitches and – as I don’t prepare text in advance – everything was lost. However, we learn from our mistakes, so hopefully it won’t happen again.

Now, let’s get something out of the way. People tell me that I am a terrible person for trying to get to the truth about the Amanda Todd story, and that I should leave it alone. Well, that’s not going to happen for a couple of reasons. Had those people close to the story chosen to make it slightly more private, I would back off. Instead, her family and supporters – most noticeably ‘Amanda Todd’s Safe Haven’ – have chosen to display countless photos of her to demand attention. If the photos portrayed any sense of decorum, I might have had some sympathy. But no – endless pictures of a young girl flicking two fingers up, flipping the bird, or striking some sort of pose for the camera are in poor taste. Seriously – is this how the family want her remembered? You have to be joking! Add to that the family’s never-ending efforts to cover up the truth about their daughter – one has to ask just how far will they go in covering up their own woeful inadequacies – and, basically, it makes the story fair game. Message to supporters: if you want her to rest in peace, stop using her for ‘likes’. Simple. So, rant over, let’s start at the beginning of the story.

The earliest appearance (that I can find) of the young Amanda Todd comes from April, 2008, when she would have been 11 years old. She was known then as mandy_kinz11. I assume she was also on MySpace and Facebook at the same time, but this is the earliest substantiated date.

Why is this important? Several reasons.

First thing to note: it clearly states she is in Port Coquitlam in 2008. According to her embellished history, she moved cities time and time again to avoid the mythical stalker (Note: I use words like ‘supposed’ or ‘mythical’ in conjunction with the stalker. It is my firm belief that the stalker – in the way the media has come to describe him – never existed.) So think for a while. In 2008 she was in Port Coquitlam; in 2012 she was in Port Coquitlam; all of her online registrations say she was in Port Coquitlam; her mother says she spent most of her life in Port Coquitlam. Really, it doesn’t look like she moved around much. The only verifiable move in the years from 2008-2012 was from her father’s house in Maple Ridge back to her mother’s house in Port Coquitlam – a massive 15 miles! And I will discuss why she was living with her father, and why she moved, in a later post.

Second thing to note: in her video, Amanda seems surprised that the supposed stalker knows her details. But this comment shows just how freely and unwisely she gave away all her details. We have her email address, her first name, and where she lives – all in one easy place. Even the most stupid of detectives would have found it easier, if they had so wished, to open up communication with her. Once you join this in with MySpace and Facebook, her identity becomes open to all.

Third thing to note: we can begin to see the first hints of risky online behaviour. At this time, Amanda was pretending to be much older online. For various reasons, she was registered on MySpace as being 18, and she also lied about her age in other online registration in order to circumvent rules put in place to protect kids like her. In this thread, we can see that it’s not just some childish desire to join a band – the band is hardly One Direction! No doubt, the band would have laughed at her application, but she is already showing signs of not being able to make correct decisions by involving herself in an age group well beyond her own.

Lastly, we can see the signs of the commencement of the type of attention-seeking that she would take to new levels in the coming years. ‘I love to sing and I have been singing since I was 2 years old. I love concerts and I am not afraid to dance and move around in front of a big crowd.’ Well – I’m not going to say much, except to mention the word ‘narcissism’ – something that will crop up time and time again.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. All comments are welcome.

Amendment: It is obvious that Amanda was online from very early on. However, there is no evidence that any stalking began then. Later on in the blog, definite dates put Amanda’s trouble as starting in December 2010 just after her 14th birthday.
