Pippa Middleton’s iCloud Account Hacker Taken Into Custody But Later Released On Bail
The identity of Pippa Middleton's iCloud account hacker was revealed by London police late last Saturday as Nathan Wyatt. The accused, however, was eventually released after he bailed himself out.
The London police released a statement saying Wyatt, a 35-year-old man, was arrested for questioning as he is the alleged hacker of Pippa's iCloud account.
British newspaper The Sun said it had been contacted by the purported hacker early Saturday to sell photos of Pippa, taken directly from her iCloud account for a minimum of 50,000 pounds (around $65,000). The publication said the seller communicated with it through WhatsApp with a codename "Crafty Cockney" and sent a few sample photos with Pippa being fitted for a wedding dress.
The report said that the alleged hacker claimed to possess more photos of Pippa including informal shots of her royal sister Kate with her children. More images surfaced having Princess Charlotte and Prince George in them, followed by naked images of James Matthews, Pippa's fiance.
The Scotland Yard conducted an investigation as soon as the reports came out, then having leads on who the suspect might be. Wyatt was at the top of suspects, leading the police to search his home in Northamptonshire for suspicion of a Computer Misuse Act offense. It was reported that the search and arrest happened late Saturday night.
"Detectives investigating the hacking of a personal iCloud account have made an arrest," a Scotland Yard spokesperson updates. "On Saturday evening, a 35-year-old man was arrested at an address in Northamptonshire. He was arrested on suspicion of a Computer Misuse Act offence and is being taken into custody at south London police station," he added, as reported by Daily Star.
Reports later came out confirming Wyatt being held into custody at a South London police station on Saturday evening but was later bailed out late Sunday.
The suspected hacker has been ordered to return to the police station on a later date in November for the continuation of their inquiries.
