Model Tracks Down Pervert Via His LinkedIn Profile

With phones these days packing cameras, just about any pervert will be able to take upskirt photos of unsuspecting females without them knowing. A 22-year old model, Brittanie Weaver, got a taste of that being done to her and she was none too pleased about it.

According to the New York Daily News, Weaver popped into a pet store with her dog when this guy followed her around and under the pretense of petting her dog, he sneakily snagged some photos of her by using his iPad. Weaver was suspicious at first but was unable to confirm it, and it was finally when she was at the counter that she caught him and the CCTV footage (screenshot above) proved it.

However when she approached the police, they told her that they were unlikely able to track down the pervert, but luckily for Weaver she caught a glimpse of his ID badge, and from there she tracked him down via LinkedIn and identified him with “150 per cent” certainty. The police are expected to move in and charge the man for his offense. The use of social media to help identify criminals is starting to become commonplace these days, and it just goes to show that we are never, truly anonymous.
