Default Help Me Find A Very Sick Person

Hello, 2 years ago a freind of mine passed away and we created a website for him for people to share their condolences, its been fine for 2 years but a few days ago someone came on and written a very sick message.
I have the IP, i was wondering what i could do with it, the Ip closely matches someone who written on the site days earlier and left their name Only the last 3 numbers were different, could this be related?

Theres really nothing you can do.

Unless the message he wrote somehow broke some law...

Just because a message is perverted or wrong in the context of where it was written doesn't mean you can get the person who wrote it in some trouble.

I agree, unless it was a kiddie p0rn letter or a threat or something, you will not be able to do much if anything. Even if it was something like that, you would have to alert the police and they would have to decide if it was a serious enough thing to investigate. The computer it was written on CAN be found, but it takes a lot of work to do it. And it takes a lot of cooperation from the ISP as well. And a court order.

Well, was the person in question murdered?

Even so, the statement alone warrants a call to teh authorities.

just contact the police, they will get a trace on the IP, subpoena the correct ISP company and get the information that way. They will give the info out to the police with a court order to arrest this guy if a judge sees fit.
