Well okay, not really COMPLETE complete but pretty close. Or maybe not. All i’m doing is really just throwing together every bit of information other people have gathered about Elizabeth Hoeller, otherwise known as Libby Hoeller, onto one page.
Because i’m bored and i have nothing else better to do. So for those of you who don’t know, this is BASICALLY how the story goes:
Chick has boyfriend. Chick makes videos of herself doing a striptease for boyfriend. Somewhere along the lines, chick cheats on boyfriend. Boyfriend gets pissed. Boyfriend send videos to EVERYONE. Videos somehow get onto P2P file sharing servers (Morpheus/Kazaa etc etc). And everything else after that… is a mystery.
You’ve probably heard different takes on the whole Libby Hoeller story. What’s true? And what’s not? I can’t tell you what exactly happened (because i don’t really know myself) but i can show you what other people (who claim to have first hand information about her) have said.
I’ve recently had my eyes opened wide and starry by an amazing video starring a girl called Libby Hoeler. Apparently she went to University of Wisconsin and made these home videos with her webcam for her boyfriend who was away. Like I said, they were for her boyfriend’s eyes only. Something must have happened between the two of them because he leaked the clips with her name, address and phone number genlocked at the start. Before long, they had circulated far and wide and poor Libby Hoeler became an involuntary internet legend. There are supposedly 10 or so clips in circulation, and the one I watched is called “The Complete Libby Hoeler.mpg” even though it is only a merge of 5 of them. They all have sound and she sings as she dances to a various songs.
I am a strong advocate for the “some things should remain sacred” school of thought. Nothing the girl did to him could have justified his actions. I started feeling pissed off on her behalf when watching it. It was so personal and here it was for the world to see. What really made me mad was the way she kept pointing to the camera everytime the word “you” came up in the song lyics. (eg. “i love YOU”, “… for YOU”, etc). She ended each clip by blowing a kiss at the camera. Her jerk of a boyfriend sure didn’t deserve her. He apparently received a 12 month jail sentence, mild consolation for Libby who probably had her life ruined.
That’s the dominant story in my crude search engine investigations. Another theory was that her bf’s roommate found and released the clips.
I probably should have stopped watching as soon as i realized what the clip was and who it was meant for and you’re probably wondering why I didn’t. I did say earlier in this post that the video was amazing and indeed it was. I do not exaggerate.

“VERY nice to see Elizabeth “Libby” Hoeller is so prominent in the news. Her story was the one taking place in Wisconsin, and the original videos posted of her have her name, address and phone number in the beginning. What a sick ex-boyfriend, he didn’t need to do that. Good thing he ended up getting a 12-moth prison sentence out of it.
Is this true? Did he really go to jail? Apparently not:
as a first hand source i just wanted to let you know that libby’s boyfriend did not receive any kind of jail sentence. he also did not put her name and address on the videos. that happened later after they had been circulating for a few weeks.

Here’s another take on it.
to whom it may concern:
i know libby hoeller’s ex-boyfriend… videos got uploaded accidentally… were in his download folder, and people uploaded it over Scour back in the day… he did not get a 12 month prison sentance… he is alive and well, attending university of indiana, highly amused by it… they broke up but maintained a sex relationship for seven more months…

Somebody once wrote something about Libby in my guestbook. Saying:
Comments: Those movies are not Libby. Some ass thought it would be funny to rename some porno movies that he had found on a now defunct web site in sweden and pass them around her campus. Needless to say it is not funny. I am sure you can figure out how horrible something like this would be for a person. If not, ask any of the girls who visit your web site what they would think if something like this happeneed to them. Please just call them some chick dancing or something instead of using a name. Someone has to start this, and I’m hoping it is you.
Yeah okay dude. Whatever.
Anyway, here are two e-mails from two students who’re from University of Wisconsin Madison (where the videos originated from) that pretty much prove that this all really did happen and isn’t just some hoax or myth.

hey. i came across your site after searching google for libby hoeler, i was bored. anyway, as a student at UW madison i could tell you what i know of her and the story. her real name is elizabeth heller. she is a sophomore now but was a freshman living in university housing when it happened. she lived in sellery hall, i was living across the street in witte hall where one of her good friends lived on my floor. the story i heard from him is that she made them for her boyfriend who was at college in milwaukee. she cheated on him and he found out, and he sent them to her parents, her grandparents, all her friends whose email addresses he knew and naturally they ended up on morpheus and kazaa. i dont know much else about it, i personally dont know her other than seeing her at a few parties.
And one more:

Yes, the story is true. Of course, we knew about it about a year and a half ago. It happened sometime at the beginning of the 00-01 school year in Sellery Hall. It was funny; we even looked her up in the student directory. She lived about 3 doors down from where I used to live, but she was long gone by the time the pictures were distributed (and everyone tried to contact her). But yes, it is true. And if I have any credibility on this subject at all, it should be from my wisc.edu email address. Heh.
A little update on the Libby Hoeller story. A reader of mine sent this in. I’ll let him do the talking:

So I’m reading your rants, and I happen to be unusually entertained by them. Ok. Not unusually. More like its the fucking status quo. Never mind that tho.
When I read your little “synopsis” on Mrs. Hoeller/Heller/Whatever, I recalled that one of the posts mentioned that her name/address was put at the beginning of the now quite infamous strip-cams. I also remember thinking that it sounded more like web-lore than anything else. No one would possible know this sort of crap one way or another in the vast sludge known as the internet. However, I recently deleted my libby-’stash’ by accident, and started looking for suitable replacements, when it seems that I actually ran across a version that still had the name in the opening. I enclosed a .jpg just for kicks. Not sure if you care, but what the hell. I thought it was sort of surprising, and anything I can do to further your research into the hoeller-case.
Like I said, I thought that part of the story would HAVE to be bullshit.
I guess not.
I guess it wouldn’t hurt to post it up here. Since i’m sure she’s not living there anymore.
Okay. Now i’m slightly confused. Is it Hoeller? Or Heller? Because according to one of the two UWM students up there, her last name is Heller. And according to the other, she lived in Sellery Hall. But in the screenshot, it says Hoeler. Not Heller. The Sellery thing checks out though. That seems to be true. But as for her name, which is it? Hoeler or Heller?
Does anybody know? (Does anybody even care??)
The videos in question:
And that’s… all that i have on Libby Hoeler.
University of Wisconsin Madison… wow. If only that kinda stuff happened here at Western Michigan University…
Actually… it has.

Libby’s Mom/Aunt (?) e-mails me. She’s a lawyer!
Taken from: this post.
I am the attorney for Elizabeth Hoeller (aka Libby Hoeler and Libby Heller) and I ask that you immediately delete all reference to her or her story in your web content. I will give you until 5:00 p.m. e.s.t on December 15, 2003 to do so. If I check your web site and determine that information about Elizabeth Hoeller is still on your site, I will file the appropriate complaints and advise my client of her right for further legal action against you.
Mary J. Hoeller
White & Raub, LLP

700 Century Building
Indianapolis, IN 46204
Telephone: 317 633 4000 ext. 254
Fax: 317 633 1499
So, i got e-mailed by Libby’s laywer/mom(?). Probably the worst laywer ever. She actually left a comment on the site threatening to press charges or something. And you’d think that she’d have the sense to leave that comment on the offending post itself but nooo, she left it on one the older Libby posts from way back in December 2001. At first i thought that it was just a prank. In fact, i was almost certain that it was because of all the bad spelling. Some guy even left a comment after that saying something to the extent of “Boy, for a lawyer, you sure don’t know how to spell”.
In addition to leaving a comment, the lawyer actually did e-mail me. But for some reason, her e-mails never reached my inbox properly. It got buried with all the other September e-mails, even though she sent the e-mails in December. I say “e-mails” because she sent me the same e-mail twice.
Why? Well, if you look closely at the e-mail above, you’ll see her telling me to get rid of the Libby stuff by December 15th, 2003. She corrected herself the second time around though but what the hell. I’m just gonna disregard her second e-mail and leave the Libby stuff online anyway. Besides, she can’t really do that. It’s not like i even have the videos hosted on my site. I don’t even have any pictures of Libby on here. And what pictures there are in this post are hosted on another site. I only linked to them. Why doesn’t she just go after that site instead of mine? What happened to Freedom of Speech?
Of course, i could be wrong and she could probably sue the pants off of me and i could probably get thrown in jail or something but hey, if i’m wrong, you’d tell me right? And then i’ll just take down the post. But for now, i’m just gonna leave it up.
I will give you until 5:00 p.m. e.s.t on December 15, 2003 to do so.

I work at a Debt Collection agency, and after finding your site this morning, decided to look her up.
Forgetting that her address was listed here (/archives/444) I managed to find her social security number and address.
219 N BASSETT ST APT 3
MADISON WI 53703
Sadly, that is the only address associated with the SSN, says it is current, but the database is not perfect. It is likely she moved away and hasn’t been using her name/ssn for shit.
I guess this is really all old information.
I can lookup that ‘lawyer’ who emailed you if you want. Just let me know.
I’m anonymous as well. :)

I recently discovered your website and I gotta say, I fucking love it. I too love boobs…two guys who love boobs, what are the odds. Seriously though, I think I have found something of interest for you. After surfing your site and learning about the Libby Hoeller chick (yes, I did not know about her) I became determined to find out her whereabouts. Well after a grueling 5 minutes, I think I hit paydirt. Here’s what I found:
100 E. Franklin St.
Jefferson City, MO 65101-2732
Tel : 1-573-636-8133
Now I’m not sure if it is her, but it was the only Elizabeth Margerat Hoeller I found, so it is most likely her. I leave the verification up to you.
