In the interview—conducted by Rosie O’Donnell—@FanSince09 kept his back to the camera to maintain his anonymity. He talked about how he went about using social media to track down the suspects, which, he says took “about 45 minutes of work, but with crowd sourcing, we got three people identified in about two hours.”
The suspects, Philip Williams and Kathryn Knott, and Kevin Harrigan, are currently out on bail. They are awaiting a preliminary trial set for December 16th.
