Washington: The Parisian blogger, ‘DeepAtSea’, accused of publishing titillating photos of nude celebrities that he illegally obtained by ring of hackers, has shut down his site and deleted his social networking pages.
The FBI have started an investigation to find the tech savvy group accused of stealing naked photos of Hollywood actresses including Jessica Alba, Scarlett Johansson, Vanessa Hudgens and Christina Aguilera.
But the blogger has disappeared.
The Daily first reported that it was ‘DeepAtSea’ who first posted the nude Renee Olstead -- images which show her playing with a sex toy, reports Radar Online.
On a thread discussing the latest leaked cell-phone pictures of Vanessa Hudgens, ‘DeepAtSea’ boasted how he had even been in contact with hackers.
"For those who hope to see uncensored pictures, here is a message of the guy who has the pictures," he wrote.
"Quote: Well I sold other stuff before and never been to jail."
The blog no longer exists, his Twitter page has been deleted and ‘DeepAtSea’ has deleted numerous posts on his favourite forums.
