(♪♪)>>Mark: Amanda Todd, the teenager from B.C. whose very name is synonymous with bullying, suicide and loss.>>How important is it to you to find out who did this to your daughter?>>If I had one dying wish, that would be it. To find out who started all this.>>Mark: Tonight, the never before told story of the man accused of stalking her online.>>My client is 36 years old, Turkish-Dutch citizen.>>Mark: How many more victims would there be?>>Three shows and it all goes away.>>Mark: And why wasn’t he arrested before Amanda took her own life?>>He knows what he’s doing. He’s done it before. He’s well-practised. He knows what to say, what to do, and how to do it.>>Mark: I’m Mark Kelley. This is “The Fifth Estate.” (♪♪)>>Mark: The story of Amanda Todd’s torment begins in the Netherlands. The teenager and her tormenter divided by continents but connected by the Internet. This is the story of one Dutch man who authorities say would bully and blackmail the B.C. teen without ever leaving his home in Holland. He lived his life in the shadows. Investigators say from his laptop computer, using dozens of aliases, he would troll the globe looking for victims, and he found one. And she was just 11 years old. 7700 kilometres away, in quiet Port Coquitlam, B.C., where her parents assumed she was safe, Amanda Todd was on her laptop, and that’s how the man with the online name Tyler Boo would find her.>>You still think you’re dealing with an amateur. You have until the end of the day before all hell breaks loose.>>Mark: It begins with relentless threats that would build to this. Two years later, a heart-breaking plea for help, a video that went viral after Amanda committed suicide. Investigators around the world would soon start scouring the Internet. Looking for the man who was stalking young girls.>>Hey, guys. It’s Amanda. I’m going to sing “Someone Like You.” ♪ I heard that your …. ♪>>Mark: Amanda’s online life began innocently. She was a kid with a dream. She wanted to be famous. And the Internet was her stage, according to her mom Carol.>>She was spirited. She was creative. Painfully shy at times in her life. She loved the technology because she was successful at it, and she could make things, she made little videos, she learned how to tape herself and sing. ♪ Yeah ♪>>And then she learned how to post them on YouTube.>>Thank you. (♪♪)>>Mark: But her online life was much more than videos. This is her well-worn laptop. Her parents gave “The Fifth Estate” two of her computers so we could unlock them to find hundreds of chat logs from Amanda. The girl known online as Cutielover.>>Do you like the poem I made for you? (beep)>>Love starts with a hug. Grows with a kiss. And ends with a tear drop. (beep)>>Mark: Where Amanda could be teased at school for being awkward and naive, her new online friends were giving her what any kid craved, affirmation and attention.>>Boys, right, you know, you’re cute, gimme your phone number, I think she focused on the attention that they were giving her in the wrong ways but then when boys are paying attention to a girl, then the other girls get upset and so often she couldn’t handle it.>>Mark: Her parents split when Amanda was young. She lived on and off with her mother and her father Norm.>>Amanda was always trying to fit in with the popular crowds and be a big part of everything. And sometimes it got her into trouble.>>Mark: And trouble was easy to find online. Amanda’s life started moving at the speed of the Internet. ♪ In my silver tears ♪>>Mark: Though she was focusing on her singing videos, people online started focusing on her.>>You never had the concern that as she’s putting herself out there, that there is anything dark going on?>>She asked for a webcam, and I said “no,” that a child does not need a webcam of any kind, especially a 12-year-old girl. And she and I probably argued the point, right.>>Mark: And you lost.>>I lost.>>Mark: She moved in with her dad. Norm didn’t see the webcam as a danger, far from it. He thought the webcam was like an arena where Amanda could perform. ♪ I’m not a princess, this ain’t a fairytale ♪>>Mark: How hard did that make it for you to be able to police what your daughter was doing online?>>We’d get her password, I’d go on her computer sometimes and you could look and see what she’s been doing. It always leave a trail and so I’d poke in on things and check on things and there was a lot of chat and things between her friends and that.>>Mark: But like most teens, Amanda’s chat logs revealed she was trying to stay one step ahead of her dad. (♪♪)>>My dad will say bedtime and I’ll close the laptop. And when he closes my door, I’ll be back. (beep)>>Mark: Amanda seemed to be getting transfixed by her image on the screen. Watch in this video as she stares endlessly at herself on her webcam. When she found websites with other people on webcams, she would discover it wasn’t just kids staring back. Amanda’s friends Shylah and Tessa remember the late-night sleepovers and how that webcam became their window on a whole new world.>>What’s going on in the internet?>>Like, I don’t know, Facebook a lot, like blog TV.>>Mark: Tell me about blog TV.>>Well, you’re supposed to like, chat with like, other strangers around the world, like, your age and stuff, and they just meet new people.>>Hi, I’m Andrea.>>Hey, everyone.>>Mark: Websites like blog TV were and still are wildly popular with kids with webcams and free time on their hands.>>I am good. Yes, I am very good.>>Mark: Some sing… ♪ Seeking words of wisdom ♪>>Mark: Some seek advice.>>I have a question, what else should go on this picture?>>Mark: Some perform, and others don’t seem to know what to do. It’s a place where people can meet.>>How old are you ladies?>>16.>>Perfect.>>Mark: And move on.>>Thanks. Bye.>>Mark: But there’s also a dark backdrop to the glare of that webcam. At what point do things get a little, you know, edgier?>>Like weird?>>Mark: Yeah.>>’Cause like, I guess like, creepy people go on the website, like, older people and they like, want to talk to the younger people.>>Mark: Those creepy people she talked about wanted more than just to talk to the girls. They wanted to see them in the flesh. Some girls needed to be coaxed. While others willingly played along, exploring their own budding sexuality. Either way, there was a growing online appetite and audience for girls who liked to perform like Amanda. According to chat logs, one day, she was on her webcam with about 200 people watching her on blog TV. She then made a decision that would haunt her forever. Amanda lifted her shirt and flashed for the camera and the crowd. It was a flash seen around the world. And that’s when Tyler Boo pounced, threatening to spread the photo far and wide unless she gave him more.>>All those things you’ve been doing for the past few hours won’t stop the shit storm from coming. Trust me. Three shows and it all goes away. What’s the big deal?>>Mark: Amanda didn’t give her blackmailer what he wanted. Her topless picture was then posted on a porn site. Tyler Boo then sent a link to that picture to all of Amanda’s Facebook friends including her mother. And what was your reaction when you saw that in front of your eyes?>>It was one of those oh, my god kind of moments, like what’s happening and why is this here and where is it going and why is it on a site like this?>>My reaction was worried, what are you thinking, what are you doing, where is it coming from? She played it off that she was goofing around. To her, it wasn’t a huge big deal.>>Mark: But it was. And it was about to get bigger. Tyler Boo began to toy with Carol. He called himself Alice McAlister and sent a message to Carol telling her Amanda was being extorted.>>I am acting for an independent online child protection group and we monitor especially sites where many underaged girls get on cam in front of old guys who pretend to be 15. She needs to be stopped because most of them are old guys who record her and blackmail her into doing more.>>Mark: Carol replied, who are you, and where did you get your information from? This is now a police matter. But how much of a matter was it for the police? It wasn’t clear what, if anything, they were doing to track down the blackmailer. Carol remembers the impact on Amanda when she returned to school as the girl in the picture.>>Embarrassment, anxiety, depression. She got, um, I guess the name is slut-shamed, so, you know, nicknames like cam-whore and then questions about so are you doing this on a regular basis and porn star, and it just, you know, for a child that’s in grade 7, it was very, um, it killed her.>>Mark: In a Facebook message obtained by “The Fifth Estate,” Amanda revealed how her distant tormenter was setting his trap.>>When I was 11 years old I got a message saying I have all your information, I will come find you if you don’t flash and do this for me. So I was scared. I said one time, okay, so I did it, and he said if I didn’t do it again, he would send to all Port Coquitlam.>>She knew that she did something wrong, she also knew that there is nothing that she could do anymore because like the damage was done.>>Mark: Do you think it was such a big deal, what she did?>>Like not really. Like I didn’t think it was.>>I didn’t think it was like that big. Like, I thought it was just going to be well, just like, wait a couple months, it will wear off.>>It will die down, like you know.>>Mark: But it didn’t die down, it got worse. It was May 2011, months after his first threat, Tyler Boo was back, repeating his demand for more webcam shows. Carol alerted the R.C.M.P.>>There was no way that I was ever going to say my daughter’s totally innocent, she would never, ever do anything. If I were an investigating officer, I would have probably taken her computer and checked it out because regardless of what she did, she was still an underaged minor.>>Mark: While Carol wanted the police to protect her daughter…. Amanda quickly learned she had to protect herself. This is one of the chats we found on her laptop.>>There are people out there that can’t talk to me or they will be hated. I never got the chance to go out of my house and be a real normal person. Instead, now all I do is hide. I’m always scared of what’s going to happen. (♪♪)>>Mark: Carol was scared, too, scared of someone who was out there online and afraid the police weren’t taking the threats seriously, despite the fact this had gone way beyond online bullying. This was blackmail or sextortion, a new crime now exploding on the Internet. With many more victims like Amanda. When we come back, Amanda takes on her tormenter.>>Not gonna happen. Do you want to meet me? Come meet me right now or are you too scared? (♪♪) (♪♪)>>Mark: What Amanda Todd was doing online was pretty typical for many teenagers. ♪ You smile, I smile ♪>>Mark: Chances are right now, there is a teen girl in a room on your street or in your neighbourhood on a live streaming webcam. Doing something their parents are completely oblivious to. Though there are some exceptions. Like in this incident caught on video… (screaming)>>Mom!>>Mark: This girl’s mother barges into her daughter’s bedroom…>>Mom, you cannot take my personal items!>>I don’t know why you’re so sneaky.>>I’m not sneaky!>>Mark: And the show is shut down. But why would a girl flash in the first place? Well, Amanda’s friends Shylah and Tessa say they don’t, but with a little online flattery, other girls will.>>For most girls, it’s like the attention and wanting to feel important in a way, I guess.>>Mark: And how does the flattery work, like where is that coming from?>>Well, probably like he’s encouraging you to like, flash so he’s being nice and like, talking to you.>>Mark: But at the time, does it seem like flattery or does it seem like someone who’s really trying to trick you to do something?>>At the time, it seems like flattery.>>Mark: And that flattery is laid on thick by a male audience who systematically stalk websites looking for girls on their webcams.>>Hi, everyone.>>I’ll do something interesting once I know that you guys can hear me and see me.>>Mark: They’re a new breed of cyber predators who capture the girls’ images. People like Tyler Boo. They call themselves cappers. Cappers then trade images like Amanda’s and post them on websites. Teenage girls… Forever young… Forever online. Cappers even had a weekly newscast posted on YouTube.>>Welcome, cappers. And cam-whores. Another edition of The Daily Capper.>>Mark: The Daily Capper would profile new girls who were online, like Must-see TV, and one of those girls was Amanda.>>Another girl from blog has been talked about a lot this week. Announcing Amanda.>>Mark: Many girls may not even know their images have been captured and posted online. Unless, like Amanda, they’re blackmailed with demands for more. The cappers brazenly trade tactics to get more nude pictures from girls. What they call a win. “Hey, good news, got some pics on her but possible blackmail for some win. Anyone any good on this or suggestions on how?” “Mail account seems permanently blocked but I found her Facebook, maybe she can be blackmailed.” (♪♪)>>Mark: Back in B.C., Carol Todd was wondering how actively the R.C.M.P. was trying to track down Amanda’s blackmailer. She had contacted the R.C.M.P. twice. Sharing the online threats with them. If the Mounties had any leads in their investigation, they hadn’t shared them with Carol.>>There has to be ways to dig into all that stuff regarding who it might be.>>Mark: And though she was hopeful, she would soon learn the blackmail was about to get worse. This video was recorded and posted on a website. Despite her parents’ objections, Amanda was still online. And her online chat logs reveal some of the attention she was attracting was making the young girl known as “Cutielover” increasingly uncomfortable.>>Some creepy guy is talking to me. Oh, my God. I’m scared.>>Mark: Her fears were justified. October 2011, it’s been ten months since the R.C.M.P. had first been notified about Amanda’s case, and she received another blackmail threat.>>This is the third request to Amanda to reveal herself and do something sexual on cam.>>Mark: The message was from Tyler Boo.>>Sup, cam-whore, been a while. I didn’t send the video last time because I liked how you whined. But as you know, I have your new school, new schoolmates, new flash your parents haven’t seen. You know the drill. So three shows of 15 minutes and then I won’t send.>>Mark: At first, Amanda didn’t respond. But ignoring Tyler Boo wouldn’t make him disappear, it would only make him angry.>>You already forgot who I am? The guy who last year made you change school, got your door kicked in by the cops. You can give me three shows and I will disappear forever. You know I won’t stop until you give me those three shows. If you go to a new school, new bf, new friends, new whatever, I will be there again. I am crazy. Yes. So your answer?>>Mark: Her answer was revealing. Amanda was digging in for a fight.>>Not gonna happen. Do you want to meet me? Come meet me right now or are you too scared?>>Mark: You’ve got pictures, you’ve got e-mail addresses, you know, you’ve got a campaign here, a blackmail campaign.>>Yep.>>Mark: It’s all right here. What did you do with this?>>When I got it?>>Mark: Yep.>>From Amanda? I saved it. Sent it to the R.C.M.P.>>Mark: She gave the R.C.M.P. more than evidence. In an e-mail, she suggested the police should set a trap to catch the blackmailer. Would baiting the fellow be of any use? Faced with the repeated sexual extortion of a teenager, the Mounties’ blunt assessment? “I would highly recommend that Amanda close all her Facebook and E-mail accounts at this time. If Amanda does not stay off the Internet and/or take steps to protect herself online, there is only so much we as the police can do.” Now, just think about what the R.C.M.P. seemed to be saying here. Imagine a young girl being stalked by a predator in a park. Sure, the police would say stay away from the park, but we’d also expect them to do their best to search the park for the predator and we now know, despite all the threats, the R.C.M.P. had not, at this point, formally requested help from Facebook to try to uncover the identity of Tyler Boo.>>As a parent, absolutely feel helpless and when the police can’t accomplish anything, what does that tell you? It’s very difficult because how can you comfort your daughter or anybody when you’ve got something that you can’t control yourself and they can see that you can’t stop it or control it.>>Mark: Carol says the R.C.M.P. never tried to trap the stalker by assuming Amanda’s accounts, though it is common practice by police. And sure enough, days later, he was back.>>It say November 12th.>>M’hm.>>Mark: Is the Facebook page.>>Mm-hm.>>Mark: Posing as a new student at Amanda’s school, Tyler Boo creates a fake Facebook account. This time he called himself Austin Collins. He connects with Amanda’s Facebook friends, then switches his profile picture to that infamous photo. He posted this message with the picture.>>Sent to about 280 peeps. Enjoy the shitfest.>>Mark: As Amanda’s pictures spread, so did the damage and so did her sense of helplessness. Tyler Boo was using Facebook as a weapon. So Amanda posted her own online appeal, a teenager trying to salvage her sinking reputation.>>I’m so sorry, everyone who got the links. I wasn’t going to do it again so then he sent it out. Now all you guys got the link. Judge me or be there for me. But right now, I feel like shit. I feel so sad and sick. But he’s going to do it for the rest of my life and there’s nothing I can do. He made you all think he’s a young boy in his teens. When he’s over 30. He’s Tyler Boo, he’s a sick pedophile. I really don’t know what to do anymore.>>Mark: What do you see when you see that picture now?>>What do I see? If only I could tell who was at the other end. Taking that picture. If I had one dying wish, that would be it, to find out who started all this. (♪♪)>>Mark: But Tyler Boo wasn’t satisfied. Around this time, a young girl in a small town in Norway had met someone online who called himself Tyler Cee. He had nude pictures of the girl and now he wanted much more. The script was all too familiar. He was carefully preparing to ruin another girl’s life.>>Hey, you will perform Skype shows or else your friends, family and authorities will see your sexy pictures. I will make you so famous, your life will be a living hell. I will put these videos and your full name, address and more on sites, I will do it tomorrow. You’ve had your chance.>>Mark: The next day, Tylor Cee makes a fake Facebook profile with nude photos and links to compromising videos. He then sends it off to the girls’ Facebook friends. Like the Todd family, the family of the Norwegian teen went to the police but unlike the Todds, they quickly got results. The police opened an investigation and contacted Skype asking for Tylor Cee’s IP address, that’s the unique set of numbers that identifies an Internet connection. And within days, they got it. Tylor Cee was somewhere in the Netherlands. The police were closing in. When we come back, investigators start to build a profile of Tyler Boo. the level of sophistication off this guy?>>Well, he’s using different e-mail addresses, he’s using different websites, he’s doing a lot of things to help cover his tracks so it shows a certain level of sophistication. (♪♪) (♪♪)>>Mark: By the summer of 2012, Amanda Todd’s young life had been marked by months of blackmail and bullying. She’d been hospitalized for depression and she started cutting herself. This is her on a good day, free for a while from her tormenters. Especially the one in Holland. Meanwhile, Norwegian police were closing in on Tylor Cee. They now had an address where they believe the stalker lived in Holland. And they urged the Dutch police to investigate. But Dutch police didn’t. And that would have tragic consequences. Back in B.C., Amanda was no longer looking like the fighter trying to stay strong and stand up to Tyler Boo. She was slowly being reduced by the blackmail and the bullying, according to her family and friends.>>It was creating anxiety.>>Yeah.>>Knowing that everyone has seen your photo, no one can let it go so she was feeling sick and like, she didn’t want to be like, around people because of that. So, she just liked stayed inside a lot and like, she just wasn’t like herself I feel like.>>Yeah.>>Mark: Amanda sent this message to one of her online friends which we found on her laptop.>>You know how many times I’ve heard, nobody likes you or wants you here, go back to where you came from, or if you died, I would throw a party? Ever since all this happened, I just cry myself to sleep because it hurts no matter what. Please, please just help me. (♪♪)>>Mark: Early September 2012, Amanda Todd had spent most of the summer inside her mother’s house, afraid to go out. Afraid to be recognized as the girl in that infamous photo. But alone in her bedroom, she had an idea.>>She got the bug in her ear to do the video and so she started on this little project. She wouldn’t tell me what the project was, but she told me that she needed black markers and she took all my white paper. Right? And she made the video.>>Mark: Amanda posted it on Youtube and the online world started watching. But her parents say people have misinterpreted the meaning of the video.>>People think that that was a suicide video. It was not. It was a release. She wanted her story out there, especially to the people that were harassing her.>>It was very touching and very sad of a wake-up call of what my daughter’s going through.>>Mark: Amanda’s video attracted more and more attention. Other kids could relate to her struggle. And sent her messages of support. She replied with this message obtained by “The Fifth Estate.”>>It’s finally nice to see people care. My family and my mom are the ones trying to stay strong. I booked November 28th to get my Stay Strong tattoo on my wrist so I can look at it and stop myself. People now call me crazy, but I’m just going to keep my head up. Love and Cheers, Amanda.>>Mark: Amanda never lived to get her Stay Strong tattoo. She took her life on October 10th in her mother’s house, alone.>>The tattoo, that’s in memory of my daughter.>>Mark: So her father Norm got the Stay Strong tattoo for Amanda. Her ashes were mixed with the ink. Tell me about October 10th and when you learned what had happened to your daughter.>>Um, I got a phone call… I was in my lakehouse. That was it. Changed my life forever.>>Mark: What was her last message to you?>>Um, that she loved me, to not be mad at her. That she would always be my princess.>>Mark: Amanda Todd’s death sparked an outpouring of grief and anger. Online vigilantes were trying to track down the stalker but they weren’t alone. Months before Amanda’s death, Facebook had received so many complaints about the stalker, they too were trying to find him. Amanda’s death would kick that investigation into overdrive. With the help of our colleagues from the Dutch TV program “Zembla,” “The Fifth Estate” obtained a copy of Facebook’s report into Tyler Boo and what they uncovered was astonishing. Facebook discovered that Tyler Boo, Austin Collins and Alice McAllister were indeed all the same person, but it was bigger than that. In fact, the stalker was using more than 90 different screen names and 86 different Facebook accounts. They were the tools of his torment. The investigators’ conclusion? Facebook found that the suspect targeted more than 75 individual victims from around the world, though that number is likely to grow. But finding him wouldn’t be easy. The suspect is highly skilled in identity obfuscation. We took the Facebook report to the Kingston Police and showed it to Constable Stephanie Morgan who profiles online predators. What strikes you in terms of the level of sophistication of this guy?>>Well, he’s using different e-mail addresses, he’s using different websites. He’s using all kinds of different applications on the Internet, he’s using proxies to cover his IP address. He’s doing a lot of things to help cover his tracks and so it shows a certain level of sophistication.>>Mark: How much harder does that make to find a guy like this?>>We’re moving ahead, we’re forging ahead, unfortunately not always as fast as the offenders out there online.>>Mark: Facebook couldn’t pinpoint his address, but they knew this much, Tyler Boo was in Holland but who was he? When we come back, police finally unmask the man they believe is behind the blackmail. (♪♪) (♪♪)>>Mark: After Amanda Todd’s death, her heartbreaking video describing the pain of her sextortion went viral. Viewed tens of millions of times. Whether Tyler Boo ever watched, we may never know. But police investigators say even after Amanda’s suicide, he was still looking for more victims. (♪♪)>>Mark: Just months after Amanda’s suicide in a small town in Holland, another teenager who had flashed online was now being threatened by someone named Kelsey and Kelsey was demanding more.>>Put something sexy on and send cam.>>What happens if I don’t do it?>>You don’t want to know. Ha ha.>>Tell me everything. I’m half broken anyway.>>I can find your friends and family and send it to them but only let it play for ten minutes and then it disappears.>>Do you please want to do this to another girl? There are so many. Why me?>>Mark: The girl reported Kelsey to the Dutch police. But it took the police six months to follow up. In that time, the girl was so scared, she fled the Netherlands to live with her father. So police in three different countries were now investigating three stalkers. Kelsey in Holland, Tylor Cee in Norway and Tyler Boo in Canada. Facebook had spent months connecting the dots. The report leads police to conclude all three were the same man and he was in Holland. When that report landed on the desk of the Dutch police, they finally sprang into action. Dutch police trace the computer to a bungalow park in southern Holland, someone who lived nearby was tapping into that computer’s wi-fi. Police would soon arrest Aydin Coban, among the nine charges against him, the production and distribution of child porn, indecent assault and fraud. His lawyer Christian van Dijk is still pouring through mounds of evidence but he insists his client is a quiet man, not some internet predator.>>My client is 36 years old, Turkish-Dutch citizen, a calm and decent person as I know him. He remains silent till this moment, and that’s all I can say about it.>>Mark: Van Dijk contends Dutch police illegally hacked into his client’s computer. He argues much of the evidence should be thrown out.>>A suspect has been identified, he’s been arrested, and he has been charged.>>Mark: Back in B.C., the R.C.M.P. were expressing their glee. Even though they had little to do with the investigation. Carol and Norm were just happy someone was caught.>>In no way do we want anything to come in the way of making sure that due process is completed.>>And I’m just really glad that we finally have a suspect arrested.>>Mark: Here, November 2013. We showed Carol the Facebook report. It was the first time she had got a glimpse of the case against the man accused of tormenting her daughter.>>It’s a sick person. It’s someone that’s preying on innocent children. Right? Someone who knew what he was doing.>>Mark: And it was also Carol’s first glimpse of the chats between the two, revealing how Amanda was trying to fight back.>>He was very persistent when you look at the kinds of conversations, right? And here’s Amanda, just — she’s goading him, come meet me, come here, we’ll catch you here, and he’s going no, no, and so are you scared of airplanes, right? She’s trying — and it probably made him angrier that she was finally sticking up, she was not going to do anymore pictures or she wasn’t going to do anything for this guy.>>Mark: Amanda’s bedroom sits pretty much the way she left it two years ago, a monument to loss, loss that Carol still struggles with. Even more so after learning Norwegian police had a lead on Amanda’s tormenter months before her suicide. But Dutch police didn’t act on the lead.>>It’s really hard to sit as a parent and think that someone sat on a file for two years and it’s your kid’s life.>>Mark: Why weren’t they listening?>>They’re the only ones that can tell us. And if it was their child, what would they have done? So I don’t know the answers. I don’t know, I don’t know what the right answers would be. But I would sure like to hear, hear them. It’s just seems like, you know, another failure to the system.>>Mark: A spokesman for the prosecutor’s office in the Netherlands says, at the time, Dutch police had other priorities than tracking down the stalker. And that’s the cruel reality of policing.>>We have to make choices, difficult choices sometimes, and it might have been that we chose for another investigation about this letter of request. It’s possible. There were other investigations ongoing at the moment where we used the capacity for.>>Mark: And the cruel reality of the Internet? There are still many more predators out there just looking for their next victim.>>The images were of young girls, always between the age of 10 and 12 –>>Mark: Here in Canada, at least, Amanda’s death has changed the way police officers deal with cases of sextortion, according to Stephanie Morgan from the Kingston Police.>>Amanda Todd is always in the back of your mind when you deal with these cases and harassment type cases online. Her name is always there. I can speak for myself and I think I can speak for other officers who deal with these types of offences that she’s always there.>>Mark: And what difference does that make?>>It makes you wonder if, you know, if, in the case you’re dealing with, if there’s another Amanda Todd out there just on the brink of doing something traumatic. (♪♪)>>Mark: Knowing what you know now, who failed Amanda?>>I don’t think it was any one organization. I think it was all of us. It was, you know, your social media networking, your — maybe your police authorities. I don’t think we took Amanda a hundred percent seriously until after she died. (♪♪)>>Mark: Aydin Coban isn’t expected to go on trial until some time next year. Meanwhile, police in Europe, United States, and here at home are following up on other leads uncovered during the investigation, trying to identify some of the more than 75 alleged victims around the world. Now, in the course of doing this story on Amanda, we discovered ten of those victims are in Canada. We’ll continue to investigate. Stay with us. “The Fifth Estate” will return. (♪♪) (♪♪)
