Business must not be booming as the person I believe you speak of moderates Liestoppers under many assumed names, i.e., Mason, Lodge Pro, etc. Perhaps I am misinformed, but for months after the case was decided by the AG and before the lawsuits, he started multiple threads outlining the evidence of the frame by Durham police. I would suggest he is a big fish in a little pond and got lucky with the case.
No, not the same person. He can barely access the Internet on a computer. Trust me, I know. GREAT detective; an idiot when it comes to computers.
