Silk Road arrest. William Ulbricht – mastermind or front man?


William Ulbricht was arrested yesterday for running Silk Road, the Deep Web marketplace for illegal drug sales. FBI says Silk Road did $1.2 billion in sales in two years, with Silk Road getting a commission of up to 10%.

Yet Ulbricht was recently sharing an apartment with a roommate, had no obvious signs of wealth, so, where did the money go?

My guess is he was the techie running the site on a daily basis and that drug cartels and the like are where the money went.
