FBI arrests Queen Creek man accused of cyberstalking ex, posting revenge porn

On top of the revenge porn, the FBI says the suspect logged onto the woman’s social media accounts and sent the images to her friends and family.

QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. — FBI agents arrested a man in Queen Creek who is accused of cyberstalking an ex-partner and posting revenge porn on the internet.

Micah Austin Goodale, 26, was arrested at a home near Ellsworth and Cloud roads Tuesday afternoon after a warrant was issued out of Hawaii.

Goodale is accused of posting explicit images and video of a former partner along with her personal information on several websites and social media.

On top of the “revenge porn,” the FBI says Goodale also logged onto the victim’s social media accounts and sent the images to her friends and family.

Investigators say he also sent repeated death threats to the woman and her family.

“The troubling allegations in the complaint highlight an all-too-common form of criminal activity enabled by the increased connectivity we have through the Internet: cyber-stalking and cyber-harassment,” said Kenji Price, a federal attorney in the district of Hawaii.

Goodale will make his initial court appearance in a federal court in Arizona.
