A warrant has been requested for the arrest of an Iowa man who skipped a court date to face charges of stalking and sending nude video of his ex girlfriend without her consent.
The Mankato Department of Public Safety says 20-year-old Tyler Traeger of Eagle Grove, Iowa hacked into the victim’s Facebook account and sent derogatory messages to the woman’s friends and family, and also sent out a video of the two having sex.
The woman told investigators that Traeger continued to get into the social media account even after she changed the password a number of times.
The criminal complaint shows that Traeger admitted that he had received the order for protection paperwork, but told the investigating officer there was nothing police could do about the incident because he was not in Minnesota.
The Court Administrator’s Office sent Traeger a summons to appear in court on April 26, but the notice was returned in the mail and he didn’t show up. Investigators have asked for an arrest warrant to compel him to appear in court.
