Focus on Uncle Intensifies After Body of 12-Year-Old 
Missing Vermont Girl Found

...

Police say that during their investigation, Jacques [the uncle] led them to
a posting on the MySpace social networking site in which Brooke firmed up a
planned rendezvous the next morning with someone whose online name was
"Skittelmeup."

But forensic analysis showed the posting and reposting soon afterward came
from a laptop that Jacques said belonged to his employer, Thermadyne, in
Lebanon, N.H., according to the affidavit.
