How about:

Police have seen CP and have logs from "Additionally, I was accused of sharing (and possibly producing) child pornography 
on a clearnet forum via an image hosting site that was probably tapped."
Police look at IP addresses that have accessed the images for those that are within their jurisdiction.
Police find an address within a block that is registered to Wiliam.
Police raid William and receive an education on TOR exit nodes on servers in Poland.

Maybe?
Why wouldn't the IP address have led to William?
