The story is that Wolchesky made the “mistake” of admitting in a video on YouTube that he was a pedophile, which supposedly made things easier for the police. What isn’t stated is that Wolchesky made his video in early 2008 — and now, in October of 2009, he’s arrested. That’s a little over a year for evidence gathering, and one has to trust that the police have acquired what they need.
Wolchesky (oh, let’s just call him inmate #3221842, shall we?) was profiled in an article of mine back in January of 2008 (reprinted here) when he was still using the monker myidisphat — a YouTube account that was administratively banned the day after publication when the Xbox Live community found Gary using a recording of his Halo game console being used to spell out “I (heart) Little Boys” out of pieces of digital debris.
