The People reports 34-year-old internet fan fic writer in Tyneside, England was tracked down by detectives from Britain and Interpol for writing a story about kidnapping, raping and butchering Girls Aloud, then selling the girl group’s mutilated bodies on eBay. “Yes, I did write the stuff about Girls Aloud and I’m sorry if I caused offense or worry – it wasn’t what I intended,” said the man, who still lives with his parents. “What I wrote was just a fantasy thing. It was harmless.”
Asked why he wrote the fantasy tale about the ‘Popstars: The Rivals’ singers, he said, “I’m not a fan of theirs at all so there’s no real reason I picked them – I just did. I’ve written other articles along the same lines which are not about Girls Aloud or celebrities and which I’ve not been charged over. But I’m not prepared to go into why I write them.” Read more.
