The reports also do not indicate whether this victim is the same as a plaintiff in another 2018 case against Fabian; both charges have been filed as “lewd and lascivious behavior” with a victim 12-16 years old.
Fox’s report alleges that the console in question was a PlayStation 4, but it does not go into detail about whether Fabian’s console included a PlayStation Eye camera—which can optionally function as a full-room listening device for in-game chat.
Popular game-streaming sites like YouTube and Twitch do not immediately appear to have captured archives of the session in question, in spite of PS4 consoles including a one-button way to capture and archive online-game audio and video.
The report follows news in early November that a New Hampshire judge ordered Amazon to turn over a full two days’ worth of Echo device recordings. The audio in question is tied to a span of time in January 2017 when an alleged double-murder occurred, and Amazon had previously stated it would not submit such audio data to authorities “without a valid and binding legal demand.”
