My name is ***** ***** I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
Law enforcement has the ability to subpoena information from the social networks to determine who owns a particular account. They can also see IP address information and trace it that way. They can talk to the victim to determine who, if anyone, has a motive for saying the things that are being said and interview that person. If they have a good idea who's doing it, they can seize their computer or cell phone to search the history and deleted files. They'll talk to other people who know the individuals involved and see if anyone has any information. What they're looking to do is build a wall of evidence, and that means getting a bunch of things that tend to suggest who did it and putting them together.
