EAST LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - We're learning more about the investigation that led to Oliver Wilder's arrest. He's the man charged with sexually assaulting four women, all MSU students last spring.
Oliver Wilder remains in custody as he awaits his preliminary exam in an East Lansing court Friday. He is charged with seven count of criminal sexual conduct.
According to police records 6 News has obtained in the months leading up to Wilder's arrest, a Twitter account surfaced under the name "East Lansing Raper."
The account tweeted suggestive messages like, "it's a nice night out, any girls walking alone by themselves tonight?"
The Twitter account even used the police sketch of Wilder as the profile photo.
The account turned out to be a joke, but East Lansing police certainly didn't find it funny
According to police records, East Lansing detectives issued search warrants to both Comcast and Twitter.
In just over a week, they were able to trace the account to an IP address and traced that to a house on Pollard Avenue in Meridian Township. East Lansing detectives questioned one man who lived there and he denied any involvement with the account.
Records say the man told police he often invites friends over the house who know his wireless internet password.
Despite evidence someone created the account from his home, the man says he doubted any friends were responsible.
Police arrested Wilder and determined he had no connection to the house on Pollard, where police say someone created the "East Lansing Raper."
East Lansing police won't say anything at all involving the Wilder case because it may be headed to trial. But there is nothing else in the police records about the Twitter account. We did speak with the man who was questioned by police who lives at the address where the account came from.
He didn't want to speak to us on camera. He told 6 News Reporter Joe Khalil over the phone he had nothing to do with the account and says he was caught off guard when police wanted to question him in relation to the sexual assaults that had been happening.
