11:04 pm
>> they came to the gym and they took pictures, and they made just a whole page story about it. i was so excited. i felt like a superstar. >> but that newspaper article led to a nightmare for kailey's family. in 2008, north ridge ville police arrested this man for voyeurism. his name, kailey demarco. >> they told me that he had an unhealthy obsession with me to where he wanted to become me, so he went to a court a month after that newspaper article had come out and said that he legally changed his name to kailey demarco. >> the suspect, kailey demarco, whose real name is herold david hassenrok, was 32 years old at the time. he was also being investigated for child rape. they found a collection of pictures of young children and this cutout of the newspaper article on haley. he pleaded guilty to raping a young boy, he was sent to prison, still listed under kailey's name.
11:05 pm
he shouldn't have been able to do it, and something should drop a red flag that, no, you can't, somebody else already has this name. >> now at 21 years old, kailey's name is cleared on state documents after her mom got multiple court orders, hassenrock was ordered to change his name back, but it's still unclear whether he took one last important step, changing it with the social security office. that's where state representative ney than manning of north ridgeville steps in. >> as a state representative, i'm thinking what can we do to make sure this doesn't happen again to anybody else and fix this for the future for kailey >> as ohio law stappedz, most stands, most people can change their name if they go through the proper proceedings and a proper notice is printed in a local newspaper, a notice rhonda demarco never saw. representative manning thinks it's time to catch up with technology. >> it's something we can look at in terms of notification. with technology and everything, maybe we should update on how
11:06 pm
that name or maybe give notification to those families. >> manning has reached out to the social security office where we hit a roadblock. we were told they reached out to hassenrock in prison to request he change his name back as ordered by the court. but after that, they said they couldn't tell us whether he changed it back because of privacy laws. >> i'm hopeful that changing your name can't be easy, especially if you're a criminal. or if you have a record. >> hassenrock is set to be released from prison october of next year. now his victims are worried about their safety. >> she shouldn't have to live in fear. she does live in fear. but you know, it's going to increase once he gets out. >> kailey demarco and the 3-year-old boy hassenrock has admitted to raping who is now 12 both had protection orders against him, but those aren't valid once he gets out of prison. manning is looking into whether civil protection orders can be used in a unique case like this. >> we don't want to open up the
11:07 pm
but in a case like this, that's pretty much common sense, she's a victim here and she deserves every right to get a protection order here. obviously a piece of paper toant necessarily protect somebody, but if he violates that protection order or violates his no contact order with post release control, then there's avenues to make sure he goes back to prison. >> kailey's mom is hopeful something can be done. >> for kailey, it would mean a sense of security, i think, a little bit of a safety net, that little boy should not have to look over his shoulder for the rest of his life because he didn't get the full term -- >> he'll be on parole five years after released from prison and he'll have to ridge sister as a sex offender. we reached out to request an interview with him. that request was denied. we'll continue to stay on top of this story and bring you the latest developments.

about the shooting spree at a kansas lawn mower plant that left four people dead. some are calling the police chief in the tiny town of heston a hero for taking down the shooter, who has been identified as cedric ford. police say the 38-year-old was served with a protection order 90 minutes before the rampage began, and that probably set him off. >> the i.r.s. cyber attack is worse than the agency first thought. they now suspect as many as 700,000 households could have had information stolen. there were an additional 300,000 households targeted but the hackers were not able to get their information. so what can you do to make sure that you tonight become a victim here? dan is here with how to protect yourself. >> denise, let's be clear. the hackers tried, but they failed to get in to your records if you were among the 700,000.

number, if you file electronically, they try to go ahead and get your pin number or register for it instead of you, and they failed to do so. let's take a look now at what the i.r.s. is saying. first of all, signs that your info has been breached. if you're a tax preparer or maybe the i.r.s. sends you a letter, don't fall for those stupid emails. it would have to be a letter that comes in the mail that says that you have more than one tax return for that same social security number. that means somebody tried to file as you. if you find out you owe more than you thought or there are liens on your property for not piling a past return and you know you did, that means somebody else filed in front of you, got it in before you did. if the i.r.s. shows income from another place that you didn't work, that's somebody that's trying to set you up. here's how to protect yourself. first of all, always use security software on your computer with a firewall, antivirus, use strong passwords, and again, avoid pfishing emails and the threatening phone calls that we're hearing so much
11:10 pm

would you believe that? 43 points, no help on the play. they were torqued. then -- i don't know what this inbounds play, you see the replay, they almost lost the ball here after it was tipped, instead, another chance. lebron, 3 ball. he gets it up and not even close. bad loss by the cavs, they blow a 13-point lead and now they've lost 2 out of 3 against toronto. the cavs are hoping to land one last big fish for their playoff run but it looks like they've struck out in their pursuit of joe johnson, the free agent small forward reportedly could go to miami of all places. he said he wanted a contender. three. one of the highest paid players in the league this year and just accepted a buyout from the nets. four days out from first pitch at indians spring training but already today a blow to the team with not much room for error as they'll likely start the year down two outfielders.
