Tor-paedo for German TV show

A German TV show has been roundly slammed after a man accused of paedophilia went missing after being approached by the show, with authorities fearing the man might have committed suicide.

Politicians are now demanding an explanation from makers of the programme, called Tahort Internet, as to why police were not informed about the man. Rumours abound that it was to hike up the ratings.

Stephanie zu Guttenberg, the show’s celebrity presenter, is married to a leading politician, and opponents have been quick to make political capital, branding the show as ‘manipulative’ and ‘outrageous’.

The incident mirrors a grisly incident in the States when a lawyer in Texas, confronted by TV show How to Catch a Predator and accused of child molestation and paedophilia, shot himself dead.
