THE FINDERS CULT

===/mku/ltra QUICK RUNDOWN & INFO DUMP===
==QUICKER RUNDOWN, BY EMANON==

A few days ago, someone in /pol/ linked a video of h3h3 productions commenting on this shitty new kids video trend. Inspired by this, an anon who had noticed some gibberish posted in the comments of a video was autistically paranoid enough to look into decoding it and discovered that it led to a Twitter page, which led to more videos, which contained more ciphers, which led to links to documents such as a a pig pen cipher (which gave us half of a url, and we’re still looking for the other half), and a yahoo conversation by one of the same people who posted the original gibberish youtube posts on the child videos. The yahoo conversation goes into detail about an organization based in the SE United States called the Finders, who are fairly well-documented by independent sources as being under suspicion of child trafficking. Some names were listed in the yahoo conversation, who I confirmed to be registered sex offenders, primarily in Florida. We were also led to an 8chan thread with suspicious images and ciphers, which has now been taken down. All of the signs lead us to a town called Pelzer SC, where an anons nephew was almost abducted by an ostensible Finder a few years back. He investigated the masonic lodge and mill there earlier today. We also suspected lhohq of being involved but it turned out to be a larp. JB is a cipher pimp, by the way. That is the best tl;dr I can do.

==Quick Rundown on the Videos & Path to the Final Cipher==

!WARNING, THE VIDEOS MAY CAUSE UNWANTED SIDE EFFECTS IN THOSE THAT VIEW THEM, INCLUDING WATERY EYES, HEADACHE, AND OTHER POSSIBLE PSYCHOLOGICAL REACTIONS!

!One anon says to google “targeted individual scatter frequency” if you are in any way affected by the videos to reverse those effects!

ALL PROGRAMMERS FOLLOW THE WHITE RABBIT TO ALL PROGRAMMERS FOLLOW THE WHITE RABBIT TO BLUEBIRD @ ZEAUX_CXT

-The key for this substitution cipher can be found here https://voat.co/v/pizzagate/1877315 or http://archive.is/ojhoU

-This leads to https://twitter.com/ZEAUX_CXT.     archive http://archive.is/alrHK

-There are a lot of cryptic messages here which lead in different directions, but for now, we’ll look at these two

http://archive.is/OuQOO &  http://archive.is/pBslN

-This code can be interpreted as binary, with ⌠ = 0 and ⌡ = 1

-Therefore, when the tweets are combined, it can be interpreted as

01101000 01110100 01110100 01110000 01110011 00111010 00101111 00101111 01111001 01101111 01110101 01110100 01110101 00101110 01100010 01100101 00101111 01001001 00110001 01110101 01101000 01101010 01000010 01000100 01000010 01101001 01010000 00110100

-When translated, this binary spells https://youtu.be/I1uhjBDBiP4, the first big hint video (archive: http://archive.is/KJEaV)

-VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED, THE VIDEOS CAN BE DISTURBING TO SOME & ILLICIT STRANGE EMOTIONS

-I’ll detail the contents of the video, and the deciphering of some of the less important information later, the most important

thing is found at the bottom of the description –

687474703A2F2F696D6775722E636F6D2F612F4253626D6E

-This is hexadecimal code. When converted to text it reads, http://imgur.com/a/BSbmn  (archive: http://archive.is/lxwDy)

-This image shows a YouTube video URL. When pasted into YouTube you get, https://youtu.be/qpy8LGVWQ-k (archive: http://archive.is/7OGdO)

– Once again, viewer discretion is advised when viewing the video.

-The most important bit of information from the second video is once again found at the bottom of the video description, another binary sequence which converts to:

01010000 01010010 01001111 01001010 01000101 01000011 01010100 00100000 01000010 01001100 01010101 01000101 01000010 01001001 01010010 01000100 00100000 01000001 01010100 00100000 01000111 01011001 01001011 01000101 00110110 00111001

-This translates to PROJECT BLUEBIRD AT GYKE69. This leads to a second Twitter account, https://twitter.com/GyKE69 (archive: http://archive.is/x1HiM)

-Once again there is a tweet here which leads to another video,  http://archive.is/O9ulR

-The top cipher is a simple Caesar Cipher, cracked by shift 18 to read

HEX FIND WHERE THY IMAGES ORIGINATED

-The second half is hexadecimal, which converts to text to read https://youtu.be/RKPSPfsYjZo,

Third video (archive: http://archive.is/uoTe3)

-The third video contains a string of digits.

aHR0cDovL2ltZ3VyLmNvbS9hL0ZVbG1W

-This is base64 unicode which converts to http://imgur.com/a/FUlmV (archive: http://archive.is/Mamo5)

-The title YBGTE VBIAXK HGX is Caesar Cipher, shift 19 to result in FINAL CIPHER ONE

-The body of the text can be decoded as is.gd, which is probably only a part of the URL, and we need Final Cipher (2,3,…) to find the full URL.

-How it was decoded; The Final Cipher 1 was a pig pen cipher, and each video contained parts of the keys.

-Each of the keys found in the videos: http://archive.is/yEWEp

-Anon’s notes used to decipher the pig pen: http://archive.is/nj9kp

==The “Puzzle Piece” Images==

-So far, three similar images have been found with “stick” ciphers. We believe there are probably more as all attempts to decipher the three have failed, and we are missing more pieces.

-One of the puzzle pieces can be found on each of the twitters, and the third one found was in video #1

-“Pink Piece” http://archive.is/LHJBR

-“Purple Piece” http://archive.is/dVAlV

-“Blue Piece” http://archive.is/dCRhz

-The one major headway we made was with the information found in this tweet.  http://archive.is/89uar

JIO KYIMVOM OLQKZG ZJ ZEJ KYIMVOM PLXO

╜ ╦╜└└ ╡└╦╡═╟ ╢╣ ╡╚ ╚╝╡╚ ┴╜└└ ╜┬ ┴═ ┴╜┬╖

-They are both substitution ciphers, and read:

ONE HUNDRED EIGHTY TO TWO HUNDRED FIVE

I WILL ALWAYS BE AT THAT MILL IN MY MIND

-Note that the substitution cipher for these stick characters does not work on the ones in the images.

-It was found, however, that the characters are ascii, known as  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Box-drawing_character

-The ones in the images correspond to box-drawing characters at ascii ids 180 through 205

-In addition, 180 to 205 is 26 characters, same as the number of letters in the English alphabet, likely meaning that this is another substitution ciper or cipher within a cipher.

==The Finders Connection==

-The belief is that these ciphers are clues left by a possible victim or whistleblower of THE FINDERS CULT

-A rundown on the Finders Cult can be found here – http://archive.is/RBNdk

-It was a child pedo ring infiltrated/controlled by the CIA, and the government let all the members pass with a slap on the wrist

-Also, remember the name of the founder, Marion D. Pettie

-So how does this connect to the entire scheme of things?

-Let me take you back to https://twitter.com/ZEAUX_CXT, archive http://archive.is/alrHK

-This tweet: http://archive.is/KQ5kZ

OZG XAFVK OZSL LZW XAFVWJK ZAVW

-Caesar Cipher, shift 18 again, results in: WHO FINDS WHAT THE FINDERS HIDE

-This was the first clue in regards to the Finders

-Note that the source of the picture has still not been found, nor is known what it shows.

-The final tweet is the largest piece of evidence yet, http://archive.is/LHJBR

BXCSSVCMW S ISKX OMWY TSGXV TDSML

-This was decoded [need info on how] by a member of the discord on 30 May 2017. It reads ZETAASTRO A PAGE FROM DAVES DIARY

-The image has not been deciphered yet and is linked to two similar images on the other twitter account. They probably have to do with the Final Cipher and will be discussed in that section.

-Google ZETAASTRO A PAGE FROM DAVES DIARY, and you’ll find this Yahoo Group post from August 2007. –

https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/ZetaAstro/conversations/topics/2219 (archive: http://archive.is/D2OMD)

-Found on this page is an apparent confession of someone who met members of The Finders.

-Marion D. Pettie is mentioned multiple times, along with a list of members of the cult from 1996.

-A few come up in the Florida Sex Offender Registry, where The Finders got busted in 1988.

-Much of the page still has not been combed through and we need some autists on this.

-Also notice the name STUART SILVERSTONE in the members, which is the name of the account which left the first comment.

-Mary Grogan is also the name of an account posting cryptic messages on YouTube, however they seem to have to do with the psychological aspect and I’ll probably put the details on her in the data dump.

-Finally, another connection with The Finders is in the first video.

-The channel name

LZW YSEWUSDDWJ

-Caesar cipher, shift 18 results in THE GAMECALLER

-If you google The Gamecaller, you’ll come up with a book by Tobe Terrell.

-“The Gamecaller” was the apparent alias of Finders ringleader Marion D. Pettie
