VANCOUVER, BC (CNN) -- The tragic story of Canadian teenage suicide victim Amanda Todd has taken another bizarre twist. The internet hacking and activist group Anonymous has named a man the group says was the girl's primary tormentor.
Two dozen RCMP investigators have been assigned to look into the bullying that may have prompted Amanda Todd to take her life, but the revelations that came out had nothing to do with police.
Anonymous, which often uses the Guy Fawkes image as it symbol, published the name and address of a Vancouver area man it claims was Todd's primary bully and preyed upon her online.
Anonymous says a 32-year-old man hasn't been charged and his name has not been released by authorities. But his online activity claims anonymous includes postings to child porn sights.
Guilty or not, the man was eviscerated. The vigilant justice worries this defense lawyer. Eric Gottardi says, "The system isn't supposed to convict someone before charges are laid, it's not supposed to be judge, jury and executioner, all in the public forum. You know, we have a justice system. It's supposed to work. It does work."
Indeed, some of the nasty stuff posted on Todd's memorial pages since her death is being investigated by police too.
One site included a purported autopsy photo, although no autopsy was ever performed.
Parry Aftab is one of the world's top authorities on cyber bullying and cyber abuse. She says, "I've never seen as many things go wrong as did here. She looked for help online. She talked about how she was cutting, involved in self-harm. She talked about her suicide attempts. She said she had no one. This young lady lived out-loud online. Lots of people watched and no one stepped in to do anything to help."
Amanda Todd's family has pleaded with people to report anyone desecrating online tribute pages and also to come forward with information about those who bullied her on-line.
Her aunt in Halifax told us the public response to Todd's death and the national discussion about bullying has provided the family with a lot of comfort. She says, "I've really been overwhelmed by it. I knew there would be an outcry. I didn't know it would be an international outcry and I don't think her parents expected it either."
