As if the the Silk Road Drama wasn’t enough for today, we can confirm that from about 8 hours ago Tormarket forum and the Tormarket site went down,
Hours later we have started getting reports by mail and from reddit telling us that people checking their wallets / escrow addresses of tormarket are finding out that their money was emptied out of the account, at least in the tormarket case, unlike with ths sheep case, the owner did not prolong the suffering too much, but just ran away and tool down everything at the same time, we cant help from wondering if it was planned all along or they just got scared from all these recent SR events. either way, we will keep following and reporting once we have some more confirmed information.
These are some of the mails we have received (personal details removed):

Since the Tormarket Forum itself went down, the discussion continued on a Silk Road 2.0 Forum Thread:
This sure doesn’t look very encouraging for the Tormarket Situation, as usual, we will try to follow this as well and report once (anf if) we will have any solid information, so far it looks like the Sheep Sequel.
