Trailer Park Trash Arrest made in connection with online bullying of Amanda Todd

A Dutch media outlet is reporting that a 35-year-old local man has been arrested in connection with the online bullying of Amanda Todd.

Global News
The 15-year-old Port Coquitlam teen committed suicide in October 2012 after she was bullied online.
Omroep Brabant reports that the unidentified man is suspected of extortion. He reportedly pressured his victims, including Todd, to perform sexual acts on webcam and recorded the images.
The suspect is described as a loner.
“He has lived in trailer parks for the last few years and is very isolated. He has no wife or children,” said the suspect’s lawyer.
When contacted by Global News, Amanda Todd’s mother, Carol Todd, said she’s waiting for more information from the RCMP but wouldn’t answer any other questions.
She did say the suspect may be one of 30 people and this could be the tip of the iceberg. However Carol went on to say she still feels in her heart that there is a local connection to her daughter’s online bullying. In part due to some things people were harassing her about having local undertones, like names of schools, and that someone in Netherlands would not know about Todd’s life in Port Coquitlam.
She is scheduled to meet with RCMP this afternoon.
