When asked why she is not the mole, Thompson said,

Star Of The Netflix Documentary

At one point, Deanna Thompson led a double life. By day, she’s a Las Vegas casino data analyst. Off the clock, she was an online investigator whose story captivated millions in Netflix’s documentary.

Her sleuthing journey began in 2010 when a disturbing video of animal cruelty surfaced online.

Driven to action, she joined a Facebook group dedicated to identifying the perpetrator.

“I spent about 60 hours a week over 18 months looking for the man,” Thompson revealed.

The group’s meticulous investigation, scrutinizing thousands of video frames, eventually led them to Toronto and then Montreal. However, their efforts to engage law enforcement initially fell short.

The case took a tragic turn when the suspect graduated to human murder, filming the act and sharing it with Thompson’s group.

“You don’t watch something like that and just be unaffected,” she said, admitting she needed a brief hiatus to process the horror.

Throughout the investigation, Thompson grappled with whether their pursuit inadvertently fueled the killer’s actions.

Following the killer’s conviction, she sought therapy to cope with her experiences.

In Case You Didn’t Know

  • Deanna Thompson is claustrophobic.
  • She hates olives to the point that even smelling them makes her gag.
  • Her online alias ‘Baudi Moovan‘ is based on a Beastie Boys song, Body Movin’.
