De Smet hacker now says 'I'm sorry'

CREVE COEUR, Mo. – There's new information about a hacking case at De Smet High School.

After some push back from the public and police, the person who might be behind the whole thing now says "I'm sorry!"

Two days ago NewsChannel 5's Leisa Zigman reported about the investigation. On Twitter, the suspect called himself DeSmet Internet and he used the anonymous mask as his profile picture.

Thursday night the account was changed to a teddy bear saying "I am sorry, I messed up big time."

School officials questioned whether a slowdown of their computer systems, an emailed video, and the Twitter account were connected.

Thursday night DeSmet Internet contacted Zigman via Twitter saying he was sorry for what he did. Friday morning he agreed to a telephone interview if NewsChannel 5 could alter his voice.

"I'm very sorry I made the biggest mistake of my life and if I could ask one thing of everybody it's forgiveness," he said.

He also apologized to police saying he now realizes detectives could be fighting crime instead of now trying to track him down.

The school is off for Good Friday and the principal wasn't available to answer whether the apology was good enough.
