    Canada - Kudos to Toronto Police - maybe you can help too?

    I wasn't sure where to put this but I think it's important. If someone feels it belongs somewhere please do whatever with it.

    I have been following this case for the past few days. Toronto police have been tracking a case of child pornography for the last couple of years and have photos of a young girl being sexually abused that were posted on child porn sites. In an act of shear brilliance (which news articles are saying could change the way these cases are investigated), Toronto police had images of the girl digitally removed from the photos and posted them asking the public if they could help to identify where the photos were from. Within hours they had results and yesterday they were actually able to identify for sure the hotel at which some of the pictures were taken in Orlando, Florida.

    See this link for details and the pictures...maybe you can help too.

    The identified hotel apparently happens to be one of the Disney hotels in Orlando. This story is horrific enough, but the idea that this monster would take the girl to a place of childhood dreams...

    Realeasing the photos led them to identify where, I wish they could digitally keep the victim out, but leave the perp in and she if that generates some leads.

    I wondered the same thing, I suppose there must be some legal reason why they can't - or is it just that technically it would be too difficult to do without showing her image as well? Surely if they have a face shot of him they could show that, after all they do that when surveillance cameras catch criminals on tape.
