A new Silk Road video was published on November 26, which reveals underreported and never-before-seen information about the film called the “Silk Road Case: The Real, Untold Story” that contains over 400 references to direct evidence from a wide range of sources.

The organization Freeross.org published the video on YouTube and called it “the most comprehensive, researched narrative about Silk Road and Ross Ulbricht’s case.”

However, the video was published on YouTube on November 26 by Freeross.org, who tries to unravel some of the riddles behind the Silk Road investigation.

Silk Road Case: The Real, Untold Story” contains information that has never been publicly released before as well as underreported information from sources derived from various subjects, court filings, transcripts, trial exhibits, and affidavits.

When Ross Ulbricht started the Silk Road, he called it a “free-market economic experiment” and he wholeheartedly believed that “people should have the right to buy and sell whatever they wanted, so long as they weren’t hurting anyone else.”

Ross Ulbricht

Just a few months after the market launch, gawker.com, the news outlet, published an article about the Silk Road, which went viral and eventually reached the ears of politicians and law enforcement.

However, New York Senator Chuck Schumer called for immediate action against the Silk Road marketplace and at the time, it was called the ‘Schumer’s case.’

It has been analyzed that as Ross lacked the technical knowledge and programming abilities to run a marketplace as large as the Silk Road, he started asking friends for help. Likewise, a close friend did not want anything to do with the market, so Ross turned to an anonymous individual.

The video’s narrator highlights:

“A stranger provided the needed help and eventually took control of the site entirely.”

Moreover, the unknown Silk Road leader did an interview with the press shortly after Ross handed the market over.

The new DPR explained during his interview:

“I was in his corner from early on and eventually it made sense for me to take the reins.”

In November 2011 following the transition, Ross told his close friend in an online chat room:

“Glad that’s not my problem anymore.”

Ross Ulbricht

However, most people are unaware that after Ross gave up the reins, the new unknown leader of the Silk Road announced his infamous screen name on February 6, 2012. The newly appointed administrator told the public that his name was the “Dread Pirate Roberts(DPR) from the film “The Princess Bride.”

Similarly to the movie script, DPR passed his name down to each successor and with the Silk Road; it’s still unknown how many DPRs existed.

So, after detailing that there were other players who filled the DPR role, the recently published video also discussed how Mark Karpeles, the former CEO of Mt Gox, was a top suspect in the Silk Road case.

A lot of the film’s narration stems from public information sources and explains that how Jared Der-Yeghiayan, the Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) agent, thought that Mark Karpeles was involved with the market operations.

Likewise, Der-Yeghiayan discovered a website on the Clearnet called silkroadmarket.org that taught people how to use the market.

According to Der-Yeghiayan’s investigation, its URL was registered with XTA.net. Then subpoenas revealed that XTA.net was owned by Mark Karpeles’ firm Mutum Sigillum.

Der-Yeghiayan stated that Karpeles operated “hundreds of websites,” which “[made him] well-suited to operate a site such as the Silk Road.”

The HSI agent’s reports also found that Karpeles used similar software to program his websites. In April 2012, Der-Yeghiayan believed that Karpeles and one of his associates, Ashley Barr, operated the Silk Road and controlled the DPR handle.

The film also explains how another federal agent took control of the Silk Road case and took all of Der-Yeghiayan’s evidence.

However, the video details how the same federal agent “leaked investigation details to two Baltimore agents” who eventually went rogue.

Carl Mark Force, the DEA agent, and Shaun Bridges, the Secret Service agent, were later found guilty for manipulating the case and stealing millions of dollars worth of Bitcoins.

Thus, the two-hour film contains a lot of information from the server takedown, the setup and arrest of Ross Ulbricht, the deletion of evidence during the investigation and how the entire case was an abomination of justice.
