Online Child Exploitation – Lux’s Destruction

Show Notes Ep 217 of Australian True Crime with Meshel Laurie and Emily Webb

Australian journalist Eileen Ormsby literally wrote the book on the Dark Web. In fact, she’s written 7 books about it, but it was her first book, “Silk Road”, released in 2014, about the so-called eBay of hard drugs, that began the exposure of the darkest corners of the internet to the world.

A year after Silk Road’s release, Eileen sat in a courtroom looking at a man who was once the internet’s most wanted and illusive trafficker of violent child abuse material. His online name was “Lux”, but his true identity was shocking.
