I didn't find it until after I'd written my script, but this subreddit has an awful lot of collected materials for further reading. Unfortunately, it's full of redditors who seem to have an encyclopedic knowledge of these victimization films. Gross.

As I mentioned in the episode, VICE's reporting on this case has been surprisingly good.

Bianca Bruno has been amazing at covering the legal aspect of this story:

Finally, a personal note. I meant what I said when I called out "you true crime sickos". I do not like true crime and I do not want Ephemera to ever be a true crime podcast. However, it's impossible to look at the Internet holistically without discussing its ability to empower criminals. But abuse, rape, and criminal deception are not what I like to listen to stories about, and even less appealing to me to research. Thank you for understanding.
