    I suppose he could fake an IP address if he wanted to, but if he were going to do that, wouldn't he fake it to where he claimed to be?

    Yes, sungal, that is indeed a "cool" building.
    Well, I guess we found out why he posted here. I wonder what that Miami cat theif/killer is up to these days. I guess it's really true that people who harm animals become twisted killers.

    I don't think he is clever enough to fake IPs. The guy got caught looking up his own news stories in an internet cafe.

    Blackford is correct. Looking at an IP tells you nothing conclusive about where he was posting from, at least nothing you can rely on. I also disagree that he is dumb. Twisted, obsessive and creepy, yes, but more than capable of laying down a false trail. In any case it takes a bare minimum net savvy to post from an IP that is not yours. Almost any teenager can do it in minutes.

    Yes, but the larger point is that he wanted us to think he had just moved to Miami. So if he were going to fake his IP, he would fake it as one from Miami, wouldn't he?

    Maybe, but you have to additionally guess his motives and thinking. I am just saying you can't rely on an IP address to tell where a person is.

    (It's Wednesday, why am I still in Belgium?)

    And if you were going to use a fake proxy, what are the chances that it would be in the city where you happened to live? I mean I can find some anonymous proxy to use online, but it's probably not going to be in my home town.

    It doesn't have to be an anonymous proxy server. There are many different types of proxy servers, and many different reasons to use them. I run my own proxy server, which I use routinely when out of town to bypass firewalls. This server would (and does) make it look like I was home when I am really elsewhere. In any case, this discussion will not be conclusive without knowing what Luka was really thinking or doing. My point is that we can't tell from an IP address.

    I don't think he's that clever either. I think he's one of those serial killers that likes the attention more than anything. He is basically a murderous Zoolander.

    As far as twisted individuals go I would classify this guy under big ego, not big brain. I think he had social/emotional issues and he crazed the attention. And even if he knew how to fake an IP address I doubt he would have.

    One thing I'm wondering....do they let you go on the internet in prison? Probably just the less serious offenders, huh?

    If he were in Miami, he would use an IP in Toronto to throw people off. He was in Miami having dinner at Playywright and on Ocean Drive. I wonder if he ever met the cannibal? Imagine those videos.

    I know people who've gotten email form inmates. So I think there is some limited use. I bey is China-esque restricted and used as a sort of reward for model prisoners.
