Following new allegations of sexual assault in D.C., I’ve learned that Bill Rausch created several social media accounts which he used to steer the Maura Murray investigation online and to harass and dox journalists who write about his abuse allegations.
A source close to Rausch was copied on emails in which Bill discussed the creation of fake twitter accounts he used to dox me while deployed at Camp Lemonnier in East Africa where he was in charge of monitoring social media profiles of enemies of the state.
More alarming than the personal attacks is what Rausch has allegedly done with one profile on Reddit. Using the name, DS_Joe_Friday, Rausch commented on various posts about his girlfriend Maura’s disappearance, at times trying to shape a narrative to explain away her disappearance.
On a post by user json32m, titled The Boyfriend Theory, in which a Redditor lists the obsessive phone calls Bill was making to Maura in the days leading up to her disappearance, Rausch writes:
He repeatedly says the Grand Jury that investigated Rausch’s first sex assault case did not exist and was a deliberate fabrication while he knew his former business had been subpoenaed for records.
Under the fake name, he suggests a reason that Maura may have fled UMass that had nothing to do with an obsessive boyfriend or family issues:
He admits to commenting under aliases on forums about Maura since the time of her disappearance:
At times, he belittles himself in order to discount theories that he had anything to do with her disappearance:
He tried desperately to become a moderator on Reddit’s Maura Murray sub in order to limit discussion:
He accuses me of murdering Maura:
It’s possible that Bill’s mother was doing this as well:
I am still combing through other forums for comments made by JoeFriday, in light of this information.
