Officials at the Dutch Embassy have confirmed media reports that a 35-year-old man was taken into custody in January and made his first court appearance Wednesday.
An embassy official said the man is accused of being behind the harassment and bullying of a 15-year-old girl from B.C., but would not confirm the alleged victim was Todd.
The Dutch media organization Omroep Brabant published the news today, and identified Todd as the victim in a story published Thursday.
The man, who has not been identified, allegedly told the girl to undress in front of a webcam, which she did, and then he saved those images to try to blackmail her.
The man who lived in the Netherlands was transient.
