Playing out a few different scenarios here with the relationship of RA and KK. One that I admittedly haven't given much thought to is - what if they don't know each other and legitimately have no connection? While that might seem far-fetched, hear me out about this:
- KK acknowledged giving the anthony_shots (a_s) password to at least two people including his father. He also sent it via DropBox and may have posted it elsewhere in several places he claims to not remember.
- KK told LE in his interview that he talked to young girls online because he was lonely. Several news stories have referenced sources that said he had few friends and was a loner who lived online.
- We don't know the involvement of RA on the a_s profile or if he was involved in any illicit online activities involving children, however...
- What if KK blasted out the password on various Dark Web and/or pedo-centric message boards/forums to be big man on campus in his eyes to fellow pedophiles. Meaning, he sends it out with the hope that others see the conversations he's had by catfishing young girls which would increase his 'cred' in that community (and yes my skin crawled typing that). Like him saying look what I can do, etc.
Very much moo, but I suspect KK has a low self-esteem and could have been searching for validation so by creating the a_s profile and getting young girls to send nude pictures of themselves to him then sending the account and password out, he hopes others in that space read what he's done and think higher of him. RA happens to be one of those people who was frequenting wherever KK was posting it, logs in himself, sees the conversation about meeting Libby at the bridge and you know the rest.
While that would make KK uninvolved with the actual murders, it may make him an accessory after the fact or able to be charged with reckless endangerment. Per Indiana code:
RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT/CRIMINAL RECKLESNESS
(a) A person who recklessly, knowingly, or intentionally performs an act that creates a substantial risk of bodily injury to another person commits criminal recklessness
Perhaps this is why Carter and team haven't released the PC statement yet - because they want to make sure everyone else who should be charged associated with this crime is.
