Charges bring end to Lindenwood University's 'Lindenleaks' mystery
- St. Charles County prosecutors filed three misdemeanor charges of computer-related tampering against former Lindenwood University student Addison Richard Todd in connection with last year's so-called "Lindenleaks" case.
- The mystery began when a Twitter account dubbed "@LindenLeaks" began promising "major leaks" in March 2012 and started releasing confidential student information--including a list of more than 180 students suspended the previous semester--via the social networking site and a file-sharing site.
- St. Charles investigators quickly pinned Todd as a suspect, searching his home in April 2012 before spending several months combing records from Twitter, Verizon and file-sharing site DropBox.
