Hacking probe in Ohio rape case targets Ky. man

Man says he's target of hacking investigation

ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A central Kentucky man who goes by the online name KyAnonymous says he’s the target of a federal investigation into who hacked into an Ohio high school’s computer and leaked a video related to the rape of a teenage girl at an alcohol-fueled party.

Deric Lostutter of Winchester told the Associated Press on Tuesday that he leaked documents related to the investigation. But he says he didn’t hack into the computer where the video was stored, only made the information public.

Two high school football players in Steubenville were convicted and sentenced to time in a juvenile detention facility.

Last fall, bloggers and hacker activists filled cyberspace with allegations that not enough was being done to investigate. In January, a 12-minute video that mocked the attack was reposted.
