Case 104

Mark & John

In the early 2000s, the internet became increasingly affordable and readily available, which led to online chat rooms soaring in popularity. Logging into the local Manchester Teens chat room became a regular occurrence for 16-year-old Stockport student, “Mark”, who longed to find a girlfriend online. 

When Mark struck up a private conversation with a user by the name of “Rachel_West” his life changed forever. Rachel introduces him to a world beyond his wildest imagination, but with dire consequences.
