Alleged Anonymous hacker raided by FBI after exposing Ohio rape scandal

A 26-year-old Kentucky man says the FBI raided his home earlier this year in an attempt to investigate two hacker groups and the role they played in exposing the players linked to a high-profile rape case in Steubenville, Ohio.

An aspiring rapper from Winchester, KY named Deric Lostutter revealed Thursday that agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted a search of his home two months ago and seized computers, electronics and other items pursuant to a warrant signed April 15 by a federal judge for the Eastern District of Kentucky.

Lostutter has not been charged with any crime yet, but the FBI combed through his house in search of items pertaining to the hacktivist group Anonymous and an offshoot, KnightSec. 

According to the warrant, Lostutter is likely the target of an investigation into KnightSec’s online campaign earlier this year to collect, analyze and distribute information about the gang rape of a teenage girl the previous summer in the town of Steubenville, around 400 miles away from Winchester near Ohio’s border with Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
