Wisconsin Boy Used Facebook to Sexually Assault Classmates

Well, this is very, very, very sadistic and scary. (Updated with video.)

An 18-year-old boy in Wisconsin is accused of tricking at least 31 male classmates into sending him naked photos of themselves and then blackmailing some of them for sex acts. By posing as a girl on Facebook, Anthony Stancl would ask male classmates for naked photos of themselves. Once the nude pictures were in his possession, Stancl, again posing as the girl, would tell the duped boys that if they didn’t meet and perform sex acts on “her” male friend, their embarrassing photos would be forwarded to their loved ones. It’s with this deception that Stancl received numerous sexual favors from several of the initial 31 victims.

Clearly Stancl is disturbed, but how do you think he got that way? Was it his home environment? Or – and before anyone loses it, yes, we realize how presumptuous this is – was the bullied gay kid exacting his revenge?

Update: Here’s CNN on the story.
