    OR~Timothy Bach arrested, huge quantity of child porn/24 computers, 20 hard drives

    http://www.oregonlive.com/washington...ls_man_wi.html

    Oak Hills [OR] man arrested, accused of amassing huge cache of digital child pornography

    "A 38-year-old Oak Hills man faces 20 felony sex abuse charges after being arrested on accusations of amassing a large quantity of digital child pornography. Detectives from the Interagency Child Exploitation Team arrested Timothy Dale Bach on Tuesday afternoon..."

    and

    "....Bach had prolifically downloaded child porn, accumulating thousands of illegal images on nearly two dozen computers and another 20 hard drives, said Washington County sheriff's spokesman Sgt. David Thompson. During their investigation detectives discovered Bach's Myspace page, which contains images of individual children and images of Bach with children, prompting concerns that he may have had contact with children and taken their pictures without their parent's knowledge...."

    They've shut down his MS page but his Youtube page is still up. Pretty creepy.

    I've not heard of this before but am quite sure it's Bach:

    http://my.opera.com/tbach2k/unite/

    "Opera Unite applications are small Web applications that run on your computer using the Opera browser. You can use Opera Unite applications in many ways, for example to share photos directly from your computer to another computer, without having to upload them to the Web. All you have to do is to install and run the Opera browser..."

    The videos he seems to share openly are of lovely children playing and just being kids. You have to wonder why he was allowed to shoot the video. Did he work at the camps where these were shot?

    Here he's asking for some help in selling $25,000 + in items in a "stealth ebay account" and doesn't want a lot of oversight, it seems. Someone advises him that if you don't give the money handlers any trouble, they'll leave you alone. I've not seen that term before. What's a "stealth account". Was this guy selling child porn as well as collecting it?

    From Master Computer Hacker to Child Pornography Suspect

    "Bach, 38, has an interesting history. As chronicled in this 2004 WW story by Zach Dundas, Bach was once a computer hacker known as Phantom Dialer who "single-handedly pulled off the biggest Internet invasion ever."

    Now cops are asking the public for any information about photos of children on Bach's Myspace page. According to police, they're concerned the photos may have been taken without parents' permission."

    Anyone with information is asked to call 503-682-0452.



    The story mentioned above:

    SPACE INVADER
    Phantom Dialer, computer hacker

    November 10, 2004

    "...Portland State University....Sun Microsystems. MIT. NASA. The Naval Research Laboratory."

    "....Two days before Christmas 1992, FBI agents knocked on the door of a 2,000-square-foot bungalow in Southeast Portland. They didn't find a criminal mastermind. Instead they discovered Timothy Bach, a socially unplugged 20-year-old with fingers gnarled by day-and-night keyboard marathons. Bach, later diagnosed as schizophrenic, lived in squalor in his bedroom at his parents' house, surrounded by rotting food and dirty clothes. He broke into computers, it seemed, for the same reason taggers scrawl their cryptic marks on walls.

    "When you met this guy, he was withdrawn," says PSU's Jayawardena. "But online he was somebody, and I think that kept him going. He gained a position of respect in the hacker world." Bach was never prosecuted. Instead, he was counseled and, for a time, forbidden to go near a computer. But today--though WW was unable to track him down--it seems he still has an appetite for mischief.

    Seems like Bach has been near computers again......

    That's some mugshot, Missizzy. If all pedos looked like that, the world would be a lot safer. I hope they sentence him for each individual image seperately. I LOVE reading about these guys getting sentenced to centuries in prison.

    Sad to say, PHB, very few pedophiles do look "different". Most look like the fine, upstanding men and women they want to look like. Therein lies the rub.....and children pay the price.

    Why do so many pornographers have so many computers? I mean you can only use one at a time. And if additional storage is needed, there are storage devices. I can understand maybe two or three. Like a desktop + a laptop + a tablet. Why so many more?


    I wonder if this guy's parents knew what he was doing?
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Good question. Heck if I know, but I wonder if it has anything to do with the obsessive factor. Who truly needs thousands of photos of anything??

    This guy was a hacker. Most of my really computer-savvy friends have mountains of old computer equipment in their apartments, to strip parts of off.

    Bumping. I doubt he had anything to do with "Jane Doe", and he's not in Tacoma or Seattle, but he popped up when I was searching.
